    The Game wasn't even close to what it was before! Naughty Dog were not involved in the making of this game, so the replacement developers for this game had absolutely no idea what they were doing. They could have left the series on a high note but this is everything wrong wih jak and daxter all together. Awful, Awful, Awful game Full Review »

    It's a good game but doesn't come close to the quality of any other Jak game

    This game is very deserving of a zero BUT here's why. The Jak and Daxter series is a series looked at very highly upon due to story, creativity, gameplay, and much much more. This is because the original developers, Naughty Dog are very talented at what they do. When this game was announced which its fans had been waiting very patiently for a new installment, they expected to get a return of their favorite heroes to continue the amazing story and adventure from Jak 3. This is not at all the case being that the new developers High Impact Games had made it a spin off which has nothing to do with anything the fans of the series had loved it for. This caused mass hatred towards High Impact Games because despite it being a poor installment in the series, it was a poorly crafted game, from the mechanics to gameplay. It also took away the open world and key features such as dark and light Jak which had been an iconic aspect to Jak since Jak II. This game was very linear and the only way to 100% it is the first time around. The actual game itself taking out all elements of the Jak series would receive a 5 but because it takes away everything from what the series was, it was a disaster. There were many poor ideas crafted into the game such as Dark Daxter which feels as if they were taken from a webpage filled with illogical requests to put into the game from a fan that didn't quite understand the reason behind the previous games story. They all have no correlation to the story and what is set as reality in the game. This series has been in high demand by its true fans for a while now and even now after this game had ruined the name of what Jak and Daxter is, we want a Jak game made by Naughty Dog to satisfy our disappointment from this game. This is a precious series and should not be made for the sake of it, but rather by people who understand what the series is about and what is supposed to happen in the story that coincides with the previous games story. I was very disappointed to have gotten my hopes up for this game back in 2009 and i hope that one day, Naughty Dog decides to make a new Jak and Daxter game to continue the great story that many people have been intrigued by for years and want their questions to be answered through amazing gameplay and story!
