The Jak and Daxter Trilogy
2 April 2012
Excerpt: Sony has recently been reaching back into it’s back catalogue, dusting off some of the all time classics from it’s past with HD magic sprinkles and giving them back to the world, letting everyone bask in their unadulterated glory. But enough about God Hand, here comes Jak and Daxter HD.
Excerpt: Naughty Dog, the creators of Uncharted, didn’t just happen to be making those great adventure games by chance. The team cut its teeth on both the PlayStation and PlayStation 2. Crash Bandicoot got better with each release on the original Sony console, and by the time the PlayStation 2 was released, Naughty Dog was ready to astound its fans again with a great platformer title: Jak and Daxter.
Excerpt: Some series’ stubbornly stay the same throughout their existences, whilst others change over time. Naughty Dog’s Jak and Daxter series is a good example: starting life as a traditional platformer, the sequels actually had more in common with Ratchet & Clank. Sony has been very active with making sure all their top titles from the PS2 are spruced up with HD visuals, and The Jak and Daxter Trilogy is the latest HD collection to be released on the PS3.
Excerpt: Before Nathan Drake and Victor Sullivan there was another duo in town; Jak and Daxter. Naughty Dog’s last series of games took place on the PlayStation 2. And I was smitten. I played all three games as well as the spinoff Jax X: Combat Racing. Which wasn’t such a bad game guys. Really. Instead of treating this as a new release (it clearly isn’t) I will briefly go over each of the games and discuss some pointers about the HD release.
Summary: The original Jak and Daxter game was a huge hit with not only fans of platformers, but also straight up PlayStation fans. Thus, the second and third installments of the series were equally popular. It didn't take a hardcore gamer to beat these games. Every Jak and Daxter game was relatively accessible to virtually all types of gamers. The graphics and animations were stunning to those back in the PS2 age.
Excerpt: Long before Nathan Drake was raiding tombs and fighting pirates, developer Naughty Dog was one of the kings of the platformer genre, with Crash Bandicoot on the original PlayStation and then the Jak and Daxter series on the PlayStation 2. The platforming antics of Jak and his wisecracking sidekick were highly rated at the time, and this collection brings the three main PlayStation 2 games back to life on the PS3.
The Jak and Daxter Trilogy – The PS3 Attitude Review

Conclusion: Every Jak and Daxter fan has their own favourite game in the series, which is a testament to just how well-crafted all three of these titles really are. To sum up the Trilogy, Jak and Daxter was already a fantastic series on PS2, and with HD visuals and PSN trophies, they’re somehow even better on PS3. Now Sony, could you announce Jak 4 for us, please? Cheers.
