Summary: When I ordered this game I was a bit concerned that I'd be disappointed after playing XBox 360 games, as PS2 games are quite old now.

My only negative with it is not being able to save as specific positions, but you learn to deal with it. Overall, very pleased!
Excerpt: While Naughty Dog's previous efforts in the platforming genre with the Crash Bandicoot series had been successful on the original PSOne, the marsupial-fronted franchise becoming one of bestselling ones on the console, the studio decided to start a new franchise with their first PS2 game.
Pros: Fun, engrossing and rather undemanding platforming .
Excerpt: Get ready for final adventure with Daxter and Jak in Spargus City metropolis. Like its predecessor, the gameplay of Jak 3 is a blend of platforming, driving, and gun combat, which is based on shooting and blasting off enemies. The graphics are good and sound is awesome!

Pros: Outstanding visuals, big levels, plenty to collect, excellent controls, Daxter
Cons: Too much running, backtracking takes longer than it needed to, derivative objectives
Excerpt: I bought it games and I you avou that I loved well. At first when I saw the images of the game. I said myself its be going not to be very interressant but as soon as you put the disk in it playstation2 you are profoundly inside. First of all we look crossed by Jack and Daxter and we realize that Daxter before being a small cuddly toy was a boy and it became a small mammal because it fell in a hole of éco black. I bought it games and I you avou that I loved well.
Excerpt: Jak and Daxter...the FIRST game I can remember playing on my PS2. It was one of the most solid launch titles ever, and paved the path for 4 more Jak and Daxter games. Jak and Daxter featured 'Jak' the speechless main character. He doesn't utter one word the entire game. Then we have 'Daxter' his wickedly funny companion. Who gets turned into an ottsel in the opening scene.
