Summary: This game is pretty fun, but mostly frustrating. Let me say, I love Jak! However, this game is difficult. And it just seems to get harder as it goes along. Some of the challenges my son and I have tried at least 50 times to pass and we still cannot get through them. We are now stuck at this one part where you have to shoot down all the guys flying at you. Neither one of us has been able to pass this mission and we cannot finish the game. Very disappointing.
Summary: I've been playing this game for the past week or so now and overall this game could have scored alot better. This is NOT to say that it is bad however. Having played the other jak and daxter games, i really wanted to play this one as well i just havn't been able to get around to it until this past week. One thing that really stuck out to me and other gamers based on other reviews, is the insane difficulty on some parts.
Summary: Let it be said that I like platformers, I like adventure games, and I don't need everything to be "adult" to have fun. Half of my game collection are the "kiddie" games with surprisingly deep gameplay and well-crafted art direction. With that in mind, the first "Jak & Daxter" game fit right in with me and my tastes. Since the two sequels (of which this is one) also got such high marks, I picked them up as well. I'm now wishing I'd saved my money.
Summary: We loved Jak I and my oldest daughter (10) has been wanting Jak 2 for a while now and so I finally ordered it. We think the game is great and MUCH bigger than the first but my one gripe is the language that is used. I know it is rated T for Teen but I didn't appreciate the foul language. I don't know if giving you examples would be appropriate or not, so I won't. That upset me about the game but it is otherwise a good game.
Summary: This review might sound a bit like the one from "swingoutsisterguy," but I share a lot of the same opinions. Don't get me wrong. The graphics on this game are very nice, the sound quality is nice, and the gameplay could've been nice if I had been able to figure it out. The main problem I had with it was I kept getting lost, even with using the map.
Summary: The game plays well, graphics are good for its era, and technically its sound. The gameplay is fluid, and it seems like a solid game overall. But the fact that the missions have no checkpoints destroys this game. The missions are difficult, albeit not extremely so, but the lack of checkpoints makes it incredibly frustrating as one tiny mistake takes you back ten, fifteen minutes to the beginning of the level and forces you to do everything again.
Summary: Dear Naughty Dog I really don't know what to say here. On one hand, you've made a game thats incredibly addicting, fun, imaginative, and an all-around blast to play. But on the other hand, I'm hoping that you fire the sadists who designed most of this game. I'm glad you made a sequal to Jak and Daxter, a fun and lighthearted game that was arguably one of the best family games in a long time. It's great to go through more adventures featuring Jak and the adorable Daxter.
Summary: I must say, I do like this game for bringing a lot of new ideas to the platforming table, but I would have given it higher if not for the insane difficulty level. First, I have all four platforming games from Insomniac and Naughty Dog for the Plastation 2. This game is my least favorite, because as one gaming magazine succinctly put it, "the game doesn't like me.
Summary: I played Jak 3 then bought Jak 2 thinking it would be slightly easier. I found it much harder to the point of not enjoying it. There was also a lot less freedom in the way you completed the game so if you can't do a section - that's it!
