Kind of fun, but gets repetitive...

Parker, Amazon

  • Summary: I loved the original Jak and Daxter. I was shocked with the complexity of Jak 2. I hated it even. Jak 3 is better than Jak 2, but it combines some elements of the second in the series with the adventure in the first. The problem is that you are sent running back and forth across this city, over and over, solving the same types of puzzles over and over again. Race over here, pick that up, bring it back before the time runs out.

Fun characters, solid gameplay, TOO MUCH RACING

Mojo Jojo, Amazon

  • Summary: J2 set a new standard for game versatility. It had racing, shooting, action platform, puzzle, jetboarding, and strategy. Every kind of gameplay was represented and that was what made it stand out. J3 on the other hand is 75% racing. Since I'm not a huge racing fan, it hurts the game a little for me. Don't get me wrong. The game is fun, and judging it on its merits alone, it deserves 4 stars. But I had expectations that simply were not met.

Same battles, same missions, different title.

  • Summary: This game was beaten in a month's time. Now don't get me wrong -it wasn't easy. There were times I wanted to kick myself for messing up so many times lol. And there were times I wanted to kick the game! The problem with this game is that it's too much of the SAME thing: SAME battles, same missions, same people. The only thing that was different was the location and how everything has changed.

Fun and short action platformer

Thomas Olausson, Amazon

  • Summary: Jak3 continues where jak2 left off. You need to save the world again. The cut scenes are brilliant, almost the same class as you would expect from a Pixar movie. Seriously. The characters expressions and movements are meticulously designed. The game graphics are good, but not Ratchet&Clank class. Load times are negligble, which makes this game a blast to play! [I spit on ported PC games.

A Little Bit of a Let Down, But Still Good

jameshall..., Ciao
24 February 2010
  • Excerpt: Jak 3 is obviously the third installment in a series of 4, and I'm going to be reviewing it on the Playstation 2. The first is called Jak and Daxter, the second Jak II: Renegade, and this, the third, Jak 3. There is now also Jak X available. The story The story of the game is that Jak is a 'dark eco freak', so is banished to the desert, and is joined by Daxter, Jak's companion from the famous game 'Jak and Daxter'.
  • Pros: Dune buggies and shooting
  • Cons: Not as challenging as Jak and Daxter

Jak 3 disappointing

Jimmy, Amazon

  • Summary: Sorry but for the full price this is not what I expected. More of the same, 60% of the game environment is from Jak 2 and the gameplay is more of the same too: a combination of Jak 1 and Jak 2. The new world is large indeed, but there is nothing to do. Just a desert and some crazy racing machines. For the faint hearted, yes the game is less frustrating than Jak 2. Sometimes I have the impression to play a long row of minigames, as there is a lack of a good story line.

Fehlkauf !

Manfred Stephan, Amazon
15 May 2005
  • Summary: Eher für erfahrenere Spieler geeignet. Düstere Athmosphäre, Endzeitstimmung, Krieg und wenig Farbe. Ich denke das bringt das Ambiente in etwa auf den Punkt. Das Spiel selber besteht zu 90 % aus Ballermissionen. Davon jagt eine die Nächste. Eine echte chronologische Spiel-Handlung, die man sich erarbeitet, ist dabei aber nur schwer zu erkennen bzw. gar nicht vorhanden.

Nix für echte Jump-and-Run-Fans

  • Summary: Was habe ich mich auf den 3ten Teil gefreut. Habe ich doch erst vor kurzem Teil 2 beendet. Ich hörte von einer viermal so großen Welt und bin erstaunt darüber, dass ich das Spiel innerhalb von 24 Stunden reiner Spielzeit geschafft habe (ohne Zusatzherausforderungen). Die Grafik ist wie immer klasse, das Spielprinzip auch. Allerdings ist man nach Teil 2 so auf Anforderungen eingestellt, das Teil 3 dagegen ein Kinderspiel ist.
