  • Excerpt: Features Progressive scan 1-2 players (offline) 2-6 players (online) Network Adapter Dolby Pro logic 2 Developers Naughty Dog have always been synonymous with the PS1 and PS2 with such classics as Crash Bandicoot, Jak or Ratchet and Clank. I loved some of those early games but lost interest after each succeeding instalment. It is my belief that you start to lose some of the lustre after too many similar games with numerals added to each title.

  • Excerpt: When I first heard that a fourth installment in the Jak and Daxter series was to be released, I was excited. After all, being a hardcore fan of the trilogy, I couldn't wait to see what was in store next for the duo. However, when I learned that Jak X was going to be a racing game, I was a little disappointed. While I've never been a fan of racing games, I figured I should still give the game a try. Honestly, I sure am glad I did.

Jak X: Combat Racing

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: It’s funny how the Jak and Ratchet & Clank series have mirrored each other over the years. One adds a new feature and the other follows suit. It should come as no surprise then that in the very same year that Ratchet & Clank takes an entirely different approach to its core gameplay style that the Jak series does the same with Jak X: Combat Racing . Though Jak X may not play like past Jak games, it still looks the part.

  • Excerpt: You’ve just made three of the Playstation 2’s best platform games, and developed two of the most brandable and recognisable characters available in modern-day gaming. So, for the next title in the series, what do you do when you run out of ideas’ That’s it! Put those characters in either a) a beat ‘em up ‘ if you have enough other characters to flesh out the combatants list or b) a racing game. Naughty Dog have plumped for the latter, and thus we have Jak X .

  • Summary: While this installment will probably surprise gamers who were expecting another platform adventure, taken on its own merits, Jak X succeeds as an above average racer. It's controls are smooth, intuitive and responsive, making the gameplay easily accessible. Using elements of other popular racing franchises makes the game feel somewhat derivative in places.

  • Excerpt: Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy was a breath of fresh air for the PlayStation 2. It was with that game that Sony began to take dominance away from Nintendo in the platformer genre. Two sequels later, Naughty Dog still isn't done with the franchise. But those of you expecting just another Jak and Daxter adventure may be sad to learn that this time around the action is all in vehicles. Fear not, this bold new direction for Jak is actually a lot of fun.
