Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy
21 October 2008
Excerpt: Of all the types of games that exist today, one of the oldest is the platformer. Since the early Eighties players have been furiously double jumping from ledge to ledge collecting items and powerups while under attack from a multitude of weird and wonderful enemies. It’s a testament therefore to Jak and Daxter’s cheeky charm that although it recycles many of the genre’s clichés wholesale, it still manages to be as fresh and enjoyable to play now as it was on its release...
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Beware of The Space-Chickens garnered over $300,000, which isn't bad for the swinging 60's. Whilst we'd love to make a sequel we've found more earning potential in the adult entertainment industry. That's right - with careful scene selection and clever editing we can fulfil all of our childish desires. Do you hear us Peter Molyneux? Release The Porn Movies!
Excerpt: Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy uses an impressive graphics engine that will surprise you more and more as you play the game. At first, the whole setting looks straight out of the original Crash Bandicoot , islander theme and all. But then you notice an island over the ocean. And then you notice something spinning in mid-air a good mile or so away. And then, later on, you actually get there in the game, and you look back and see the hut that you started in.
Excerpt: One of the biggest problems with having a library as strong as the PlayStation 2's is that there are so many good games that truly great ones don't get the same chance to shine as they would if released into a market where their competition wasn't nearly as fierce or the number of titles released around the same period weren't so numerous.
Excerpt: So I know what you all are thinking, another platform game?! Well think again - while Jak and Daxter is not going to completely revolutionize the genre, it is definitely making its way to perfecting it. The game takes place on a series of islands (mainly one large one) where an ancient race of technologically savvy creatures known as the Precursors have become extinct, leaving lots of technology and mysteries to discover.
Conclusion: As usual, the evil people of the world are doing their thing but the game somehow avoids mentioning them too often. The real opposition in the story is the fact that Daxter (who already looks like a rodent) has fallen into a vat of cosmic ooze called Dark Eco and transformed into a squirrel/rat/cat like animal. Jak sets out with his buddy on his shoulder to find a cure.
Excerpt: Naughty Dog without a doubt packs some of the most creative squad of developers on the videogaming front. They've come to rival legendary developers such as Rare, Konami of Japan, and NeverSoft to every single extent. Naughty Dog started out small; two 16 year olds by the names of Jason Rubin and Andy Gavin. First came a weird Apple Mac skiing game, and then afterwards came a Panasonic 3DO game called "Way of the Warrior".
