Jak 3

Thunderbolt Games
24 February 2009
  • Excerpt: Beautiful organic landscapes, sun kissed oceans and traditional platform gameplay are among the things I do not associate with this game. Jak & Daxter are back (contrary to what the title would have you believe) and for better or worse their third instalment in the beloved series has undergone yet another transformation.

Jak 3

The Gamers Temple
16 October 2005
  • Excerpt: Jak and his boisterous buddy Daxter are back in what is purportedly their last adventure together, the trilogy-concluding Jak 3. While Jak II so a major change in direction from its predecessor, Jak 3 has no such shift in store and closely mirrors Jak II both in tone and in gameplay. Suffice it to say that if you enjoyed Jak II, then you’ll have a good time with Jak 3 as well.

Jak 3

Playstation Illustrated
29 September 2005
  • Excerpt: Jak 2 was a bit of a crapshoot. Whereas the original was a genre defining platformer, the follow-up was a genre-buster that combined elements of platformers and action games with the free-roaming elements from the GTA series. While the game was enjoyable, it left a few fans with an uneasy feeling. Jak 3 , the last game in the Jak & Daxter series, continues in the same direction as the second installment, but patches up the potholes and bumps.

  • Summary: The third and final installment in Naughty Dog's Jak & Daxter trilogy takes the series even further from its roots as a traditional platformer. This time, the game offers more driving, fighting and combat sequences than ever before, along with more traditional platforming elements. The game isn't nearly as bleak as Jak II and has a more expansive feel thanks to its desert setting. It's not nearly as hard as the last game, either.

Jak 3

Game Over Online
22 December 2004
  • Excerpt: When it was announced that Jak 3 would be the last title in the series, I, like other Jak fans, couldn’t believe what I was hearing. Hell, even during the preview screenings of the game I had trouble rationally accepting that this was the end of the Precursor Saga. After all, this was one of the most successful franchises on the PS2. The popularity of Jak and Daxter had (arguably) surpassed Crash Bandicoot as the most beloved mascot on the console.

Jak 3

The Armchair Empire
2 December 2004
  • Conclusion: After a certain percentage of the game is done, Jak will have to return to Haven city. It’s not the same Haven from Jak II, however. Remember those annoying feds that would constantly chase you? No more of those. The KG, the resistance and a huge batch of remaining Metal Heads are too busy slaughtering each other in a war. No matter where Jak goes, he’s participating in it.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Jak 3 has many strong points as you would expect. A second sequel should have ironed out the flaws of its (ahem) precursors, but the second Jak game put the series back too far. As much as you want to like Jak 3, ultimately there are still too many flaws here for it to be as fun as Sly 2 or Ratchet 3. For those that can stick it out though, there is much here worth experiencing.

Jak 3 PlayStation 2 Review

Game Info Wire
19 November 2004
  • Excerpt: For a medium-difficulty, medium-playtime game (it should take you a little more than ten hours to complete), "Jak 3" is a wonderful end to the series.

Jak 3

Gamecell
19 October 2007
  • Conclusion: To add to the atmosphere, the voice acting is done with great ability and humour, the music is excellent (I love the "peaceful" desert theme), the time of day changes, as does the weather, so you get sandstorms in the desert and when it rains you get raindrops on the screen – all little touches that help immerse you completely into J&D’s world.
  • Pros: We, love Daxter., A perfect difficulty curve., The Leapers., The Sandhopper buggy is genius., The huge T-Rex-like Metal Heads., The final boss.
  • Cons: A couple of graphical issues, but nothing much.
