Summary: For a while there Sony had always battled with Naughty Dog Software and their most famous product Crach Bandicoot. They fought back with this game amongst others called Jak and Daxter which is a really good game on the Playstation 2. I own a few games like this on my PSP so bought this one a little while ago to see what it was like and wasn't disappointed.
Summary: 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 .
Summary: Jak and Daxter is a great platformer for the PS2, and is made by Naughty Dog, who made the superb Crash Bandicoot series for the PS1. It's a superb game that lives up to the expectations of Naughty Dog, with some astounding visuals, and amazing gameplay. It's got a great degree of sheen and pollish, and a superbly realised artistic style, as well as taking the very best gameplay elements from the best platformers of recent years and combining them into a very fun and...
Summary: Jak and Daxter is a platforming adventure exclusively developed by Naughty Dog for the Playstation 2. The story follows two boys Jak and Daxter, on one of their adventures Daxter manages to fall into a pool of Dark Eco which transforms him into an Ottsel a cross between an otter and a weasel! Naturally he isn't to pleased about this and the games story has the pair trying to restore Daxter back to his original form.
Summary: It's been a while since I've sat down and consciously played a platform game. While the Tomb Raider series may have been as much about platforming as adventuring, beyond that I would have to cast my mind back to the days of my trusty Commodore 64 and the likes of Jet Set Willy or Monty Mole. Anyone remember those?
Pros: No loading times, Excellent draw distances, Entertaining variety of tasks
Summary: PS2's first classic platformer turns out to be as great to play as it is to look at... Jak & Daxter's story isn't very complex, you play as Jak a young elf-like boy who one day along with his friend Daxter are exploring Misty Island. Weird things are going on at Misty Island and they want to discover what it is.
Summary: This game is positively without doubt THE best game out on the ps2 console for the price you pay. Don't pay $$ for games like Enter the Matrix and stuff, buy this game. This game is highly recommended, it will keep you busy for hours with its stunning graphics, great story, and fairly good story. Apart from being slightly repetitive, it is a great game. And the setting changes so much, that you hardly know the repetitiveness (of collecting power cells).
Jak & Daxter (PS2): Jak & Daxter - a naughty dog victory
26 April 2002
Summary: Jak & daxter is the first really good platformer to apppear on any next-gen system. You should know what to expect from naughty dog, the makers of the original crash bandicoot games (crash 1-3) and im very pleased to say that this retains all the charm of the crash games. You play as Jak, running around trying to find a way to return your friend daxter, who got changed into a weasel, into his original form.
Pros: Very fun, Totally immersive, Graphically excellent
Cons: too short, too easy for those wanting a challenge
Summary: Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy is brought to us than none other than 'Naughty Dog' the creators of Crash Bandicoot. They chose to leave the development of the (not a big enough leap) new instalment of the Crash series to someone else while they set about this 3D roaming/platforming masterpiece.
Pros: Great Graphics & NO loading times, Excellent Sound, Superb Animation
Summary: From the makers of the smash hit CRASH BANDICOOT 1,2,3. Here is Jak and Daxter. And here a opinion to tell you whether this game matches up to the high expectations set by the Crash Bandicoot titles. The graphics in Jak and Daxter is the first thing that will catch your eye. They are smooth, lush and polished well to make a cartoony, surreal world look realisted and believable (like in Shrek). The animation sequences are suberb and unlike anything you will ever see.
