  • Excerpt: I never got to play Jak and Daxter . I knew it was a platform game on PS2, in much the same way that I know that Patrick Kielty is an ‘entertainer’ of questionable talent who might just about appeal to deranged senior citizens. That being the case, I started playing Jak II: Renegade with a fresh pair of eyes, free from knowledge of the platform pairing’s previous exploits.

  • Excerpt: In this time of constant technological evolution, it’s interesting to see how the increase in processing power of all the next generation consoles that we own has directly effected the type of games we play on them. Over the last ten years a great deal has changed; former market leaders have lucked out to opportunist multi-nationals with shrewd marketing divisions and from nowhere video games have become big money, huge in fact.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Reviewing a game that takes you through such extremes is difficult; at its best it deserves a high 9, at its most infuriating, anything from a 6 and up. For the sake of this review however, I'd have to say this game, despite its shortcomings is an overall solid and enjoyable title - just be warned that it's not easy, requires having to put up with some punishing sections, and is slow to get started.

  • Conclusion: It's disappointing because Naughty Dog have coded a bit of a cracker here - it's just a shame that they don't seem to want you to see all of it. Our score reflects the high irritation factor, which knocks the score for this genuinely varied game down by a couple of points.
  • Pros: A huge city to explore., Superb animation and mostly nice graphics., Daxter is great., A real mix of genres that actually ties together as a whole., The racing and sub-games are cool.
  • Cons: Too darned hard (could cause joypad throwing/abuse with the wrong person)., Some graphical glitching when there's a lot on screen.

  • Summary: Jak II: Renegade is everything fans were hoping it would be. The game certainly is fairly hard, so young children may become annoyed pretty quickly, but with a darker slant it's probably not aimed at kids anyway. Overall this game is stunning.

  • Summary: Naughty Dog's more mature version of Jak retains everything that made the original good, and adds some much needed plot and atmosphere.

Jak II - Renegade

  • Conclusion: Jak II: Renegade bjuder på en mycket vacker helhetskänsla i en enorm stad där det mesta är möjligt, men saknar den intensitet som var grundstommen i The Precursor Legacy. Ska man fatta tycke för Jak II bör man ta spelet för vad det är och sluta jämföra det med Jak & Daxter, då det är två helt olika sorters spel. Men det är svårt, eftersom Jak är en utav våra viktigaste plattformskaraktärer. Någonsin.

  • Summary: Jak 2 ist ohne Frage ein eindrucksvolles Action-Jump&Run. Was die Wertung aber leider deutlich nach unten zieht, sind die vielen, unnötig frustigen Stellen plus das wahrlich mit Abwechslung geizende Design der viel zu ausladenden Oberwelt. Hier wäre weniger deutlich mehr gewesen. Die tolle Inszenierung, viele neue Features wie das Hoverboard, die hochpräzise Steuerung und nicht zuletzt die phantastische Grafik befördern den Titel aber trotz genannten Mängeln in die...
