Excerpt: The Playstation 2 (PS2) was one of the most successful video game machines of all time. There were plenty of great games on that system. Games like The Bible Game, and Larry Boy and the Bad Apple stay memorable to this day. Sony had quite a few different characters and franchises they brought to gamers on the PS2. They have been on a campaign to remind gamers of many of those franchises in the form of collections.
Review: Jak and Daxter Collection Stumbles Slightly On Its Journey To PS Vita
8 April 2012
Excerpt: Sony did have a novel idea when it decided to start releasing its HD collections for the PS Vita. Hey, why not? They did decent business over on the PlayStation 3, and classic older titles on the handheld certainly beat nothing at all. However, this process has gotten off to a rather slow start with Jak and Daxter Collection , a recreation of Naughty Dog's trilogy for on-the-go play.
Conclusion: The Jak and Daxter Collection is one of the best high-def re-releases about and represents great value for money in terms of bang for your buck. The main – indeed only – problem is that certain gameplay elements that we let slide back in 2003 and 2004 haven’t aged well at all, particularly during missions in the second half of Jak 2.
Summary: The Jak and Daxter Collection brings the first three installments of the Jak and Daxter franchise to life like never before with stunning 720p HD visuals, stereoscopic 3D functionality and PS3 trophy support.
Conclusion: The collection hits highs ( Jak 1 ) and lows ( Jak II ) but serves as a great window into the changing of the guard in action platforming in the early aughties. Gamers who haven't checked out the series really should for historic value alone.
Excerpt: Back in the PS2 era, there was a lot of hype surrounding the new Naughty Dog franchise. The developer had made a name for itself with the very successful Crash Bandicoot series and gamers everywhere were buzzing with excitement over what they could do on a more powerful console. Then in December of 2001 they revealed their “demolition duo” in Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy .
Excerpt: Being a “mature” gamer, I really love all the attention older titles from days gone by are getting. There has been a fantastic movement as of late to remaster older games and bring them as close as possible to today’s video game standards. Hot on the heels of God of War, Metal Gear Solid and ICO HD remakes comes the Jak and Daxter Collection. The whole process of remaking an older game series in HD can be a bit delicate.
