The Jak and Daxter Trilogy
7 March 2014
Summary: I had never got round to playing the trilogy around the time it was released back with the PS2, so seeing it as a collective package for the PS3 is not only handy, but also nostalgic as you remember various styles that are used with previous games of its genre. The HD remastering was pretty good too. As for the games separately, the first one sees you play as a young Jak in his homeland called Sandover Village.
Summary: Played all these games over a long period of time, as soon as I saw it released on the ps3 I bought it straight away! Jak 3 was still great but with the other 2; the advances in technology mean that today's games, in comparison with them, are no longer as fun to play. The product arrived very late, but nicely packaged.
Summary: had fond memory's of playing these when I was younger was so good to go back and play them again after all these years :D good story and combat. Still found some the mini games challenges challenging even now lol no idea how I did them all them years ago XD only real niggle so to speak, is the camera in the first game Jack and Dexter the camera really sucks and is very annoying in places but once your used to it its fine.
Summary: I never played the original games, so this HD collection is entirely new to me. I love it! It is one step above most of the platformers I have played. The graphics are beautiful, game play is varied and it is packed with wit. The open world style definitely suits people who like to explore (it is so satisfying to finally collect all the objects in a level!). My only problem with the games is they tend to be a little difficult in the latter levels..
Conclusion: For all of us who played the Jak games growing up, this is a must!!! Sadly, graphics have marginally improved at best but this is almost irrelevent in comparison to the still-amazing voice-acting and story writing. Also the camera angling problems from the original games have been more or less resolved. So far i'm only half way through the three games but i already know that this will be up their in my top three favourite games again!
Conclusion: This 'classis hd' collection gives you three games, complete with individual trophie lists, including a platinum for each. The first Jak and Daxter is a brilliant game which has a unique blend of comedy, action and platforming and is an enjoyable game that you'll love to 'platinum', like myself. The other two games Jak 2 and Jak 3 are then incredabley unenjoyable as they're are more of a third person shooter/platformer genre.
Conclusion: This set of the three games really brings a sense of nostalgia to all of us who have played Jak games before, and its great to see them return to the Playstation 3. The gameplay is still as great as before and the humour never fails to put a smile on your face. The only drawback that I think the series has is the fact that the graphics have only improved very little, but it is definitely possible to overlook this because of the sheer brilliance of the entire series.
