Jak II

Game Over Online
7 January 2015
  • Excerpt: I do believe I am about to piss a few people off. This is because I do not like Jak II . The original Jak & Daxter was a platformer, much like any other. It did not offend me, unlike many 3D platformers of the previous console era; it had a manageable camera and recognizable goals.

Jak II by Sony

Game Monkeys
5 March 2013
  • Summary: Despite the periodic cries that the platformer is dead, Jak II rises from the proverbial ashes to remind us not only that the genre is alive and well, but also of what it's capable of. Varied, smooth, and thoroughly entertaining this may be the new benchmark for all other games like it.
  • Pros: Lots of variety in a killer game.
  • Cons: A bit disjointed at times with boring runs from A to B.

Jak II

Just RPG
10 September 2005
  • Excerpt: No longer is Jak a happy-go-lucky plucky kid. In Jak II , he's meaner, tougher, darker, and so are the surroundings, in the sequel to the popular Jak and Daxter . If you were a good enough adventurer, you found all 100 of the Precursor power cells in the first game (actually, 101 of them).

Jak II

Playstation Illustrated
5 January 2005
  • Excerpt: I don't think many people realize the long reaching influences of the original Jak and Daxter . Although it appears to be a simple platformer, the game not only allowed developers (and gamers) to see the true power of the PS2, but it also introduced gameplay elements that have become staples in many...

The Laser
5 July 2004
  • Summary: Naughty Dog's Jak & Daxter was released two years ago on the PS2 to critical acclaim and commercial success largely thanks to its addictive gameplay and beautiful design. Now, the sequel has arrived and while there are some familiar elements, it feels like an almost entirely different game.
