Summary: I am not the most ambitious gamer in the world, but I have managed to make it through Kingdom Hearts, Both Ratchet and Clanks, Starfox Adventures and all the Spyro the Dragons (yes even the dreaded "Treetops Dragon jump").
It's a challenge...but hard does not equal fun. It equals frustration, at least for me and many others.

Summary: A improvement from the first title, the sequel dramatically changes everything from the first Jak game and makes it, for the most part, better. We now have four guns, a great addition, along with multiple hitpoints (that go down fast I might add), and the inclusion of Dark Jak, a super form that...
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!
Summary: Well, if i had to comment on this game as a right of a citizen of the United States of America, then i would probably make it very long and boring. And so in my attempt i am going to do just that, when that signifies being long and boring.
Summary: We all know that Jak and Daxter was TOO easy, and we wanted something tougher. Well, we got it, but Naughty Dog went a little overboard. The game is VERY similar to GTA. The only difference is that the GTAs were challenging and this is plain insane!
Summary: That's what I found myself thinking about Jak 2. My first concern came when it first started the intro sequence.. the framerate seemed a bit choppy, just on the edge of being distracting. I thought nothing of it until it kept showing up throughout the entire game.
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.
Summary: Proving that sequels can actually destroy the original, Jak II writes a chapter in this game series that permanently steers it into a nose dive. Like the Alien movie series, which departed into oblivion at Alien 3, Jak II kills the magic of the original. Think Lion King 2. Or think Highlander 2.
Summary: I guess this an alright game but the first one was so much better. It seems Naughty Dog is just trying to cash in on the Grand Theft Auto trend (go anywhere in an open environment, activate missions as you please, steal vehicles) and they just forgot to make this game a fun platformer.
