A Great Series Made Even Better
3 January 2015
Summary: I played these growing up, and they cemented Naughty Dog as my favourite gaming developer. I enjoyed Crash Bandicoot, but the Jak trilogy showed me a glimpse of what games could be, how deep a story could tell, how they could become something more than just a fun thing to play. The PS3 release is more than just a trip down memory lane, it's also a wonderful refurbishing of a franchise.
Summary: An excellent series. Although this PS3 port has a few glitches and problems (particularly evident in Jak 2) It is still very much a fun game. As others have mentioned, Jak 2 is frustratingly difficult due to the lack of checkpoints and health packs, but for what it is it is still very much a good deal. In terms of graphics, I would not call them "remastered" as all the textures and graphics are the same, just this time being rendered by the PS3 in 720p 60fps.
Summary: Framerate issues makes this game unplayable. Everything else is passable but low FPS prevent me to have any fun at all. Only question to ask is: why there was no patch ever released? Such a waste.
Summary: These games are fantastic! I was not old enough to play these games when they came out (I was just born and was like 4 when Jak 3 came out) Jak 1 was cartoony and relaxing to play. Jak 2 made me really think about where I was going and how I was going to perform each jump without dying and having to start the mission all over (Stupid Mountain Collection Mission).
Summary: Is there something worse than an infantile 3d platformer? Yes, badly ported infantile 3d platformer with framerate issues, tons of glitches and input lag making controls one big hell that leads to the new undiscovered realms of frustration. Camera work is terrible and overall the gameplay is simply just bad. Characters are annoying and all you do is jumping like crazy, collecting orbs, Is there something worse than an infantile 3d platformer?
Summary: I absolutely loved these games when I was younger. After I got married and moved out, I found that my younger siblings had rounded up all of our PS2 games and sold them with the console for money to buy a PS3. I was crushed because I had asked for those games as they were mine and had offered to buy the PS2 from them. I was thrilled to find that Naughty Dog or Sony (or whoever is responsible) had put them together for the PS3.
