Average User Score: 8.2Dec 29, 2013Jak and Daxter- 8.5/10: It's a good game. It's simple and one of the best ps2 platformers i've played. Definitely worth at least one playthrough. It's no masterpiece, but again it's just a good game. Nothing particularly wrong with it.
Jak II- 5.5/10: Very bad game. This game is an oversized open world riddled by cops that will chase you and kill you nonstop just for bumping into them accidentally. The game's difficulty spike is very inconsistent, and there are several levels that aren't difficult, but just require you to do something that is impossible to pull off on your first try due to the nature of this game's trial and error gameplay. The car controls feel like crap. The only positive thing I can say about this game is the plot is okay, the graphics are nice, and the feeling of the game's engine while playing as jak himself is pretty much as polished as you'd want it to be on a PS2. Overall, this game is by far the worst thing Naughty Dog has ever created. It's a more quality game than Jak and Daxter, but it's poor open world and level design make it all for nothing.
Jak 3- 8.5/10: The best game in the series. It takes everything that's good from the first two games and combines it. It's a lot more like Jak 2 but upgraded. It fixes every problem with Jak 2 essentially, and it's mind blowing. It has a normal sized open world, tolerable car controls, less glitches and bugs, a much better plot, gameplay that makes sense. Jak II simply felt like a rushed and incomplete game, while this felt like a fitting end to the series by being fun and quality at the same time. The gun mods are fantastic and ended up making me love this game more than the rest of the series. And the ending has a twist that anyone could appreciate for it's epicness and humor. Jak 3 was a surprisingly great game despite it's failure of a predeccesor, Jak II. The entire trilogy could very well be worth playing just for this game.
Overall, I give the collection a 7/10. It's got it's ups and downs, but Jak II definitely brings it out of being an 8/10 experience overall.… Expand
Average User Score: 9.0Dec 29, 2013This game is no Super Mario 64, sunshine, or galaxy. It is the 2nd game in the Super Mario 3D series, Super Mario 3D Land being the first. If you've played that game, expect just about the same thing but with better graphics (obviously), more creativity and innovation, and just a better experience overall. The multiplayer also adds an extra layer of fun to the game, and unlike New Super Mario Brothers, it actually works because you don't get into each other's way. Honestly, this game isn't as good as most critics have been saying, but it's still a fantastic game. I would give it just a flat, simple 9/10. It deserves a 9, but nothing more. If you like Super Mario Brothers linear run to the flag gameplay, but you like the 3D roaming and controls of the Super Mario series (64, sunshine, galaxy), then you'll love this game. I would say that it's the best Mario game released that isn't in the Super Mario main series. Hope this helped.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.4Apr 29, 2012The creativity is endless and the more you create, the more fun you will have. It's hard to really say that there is anything wrong with minecraft, because the game itself is essentially as good as you make it. You create your own experience in the game. It's loaded with content that is updated constantly and every bug that has ever been complained about has been fixed. Mods are endless and there's always something new to do. It's not the greatest game ever made, but it's up there and is possibly the greatest indie game ever made.
It by no means needs good graphics to excel. That's not what minecraft is about. And besides, if you have the computer power, you can always update your graphics with several various texture packs that can be found around the internet. Like I said, you create your own experience, so it's hard to really point something out that's not good. If the experience is bad, it is usually at the fault of the player, not the game.… Expand
Average User Score: 5.6Apr 29, 2012This game may be very fun, but it has some problems in terms of quality that make it an experience that you will often regret at times. I often find myself dishing out hours at a time on this game only to lose over and over to the broken characters and cheap strategies that people use. Characters like Master Yi, Tryndamere, Warwick, and many others are just at too much of an advantage to really be able to sustain a fair competition. I urge anyone to explain to me where the balancing is in a lot of the game's OP characters that Riot just seems to refuse to repair and instead keep adding more broken characters to the roster.
In terms the graphics, the game is fantastic for a free game. The sound effects and music are as good as it gets for a game like this(though the dialogue can get annoying and cheesy, but what do you expect?) and the game introduces an impressive business strategy of allowing a person to pay absolutely no money to play, but forcing the player to experience a very lethargic system of gathering influence points while rarely being able to buy that new character you've been looking at. The matchmaking is swift, but the servers have issues at many times. It needs work. Riot also needs to make some extra servers because most people's ping on the game is atrocious and could lead to many problems as the content expands and upgrades to something more complex that demands more powerful internet.… Expand
