Excerpt: Jak & Daxter, the popular platform duo, makes its comeback after having been gone for quite some time. Naughty Dog put the heroes aside after the “kart-racer” Jak-X to make the transition to the next-gen Sony consoles with Nathan Drake.
Excerpt: There’s something loveable about Lego games. I wasn’t even a Lego fan as a kid, but seeing characters and moments from films play out as if performed by a group of seven-year-olds is something special.
Review: Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier (Sony PSP)
15 April 2010
Summary: Something of a let-down, Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier isn’t a terrible addition to the Jak and Daxter series, but it is lacking some spark the other games had. The game controls decently but be prepared to fight the camera in some key areas.
Conclusion: Disciples III is powered by an engine that no one in their right mind would call state of the art. That doesn’t mean she isn’t a head-turner though. The masterfully crafted artwork does a remarkable job of making you forget about the quality of the graphics and the visuals are absolutely stunning.
Cool sci-fi weapons & steampunk levels, but just OK overall.

Summary: Parents need to know that playing Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier can be a frustrating experience because it doesn't feel truly finished. Aiming weapons is often annoying. The lack of depth perception leads you to die a lot.
Excerpt: There hasn't been a Jak and Daxter game for ages. After the duo made such an impressive debut on the PS2 back in 2001, the series dropped the "and Daxter" part of the title, went darker and placed a larger emphasis on using guns.
Excerpt: Outside of the kart combat game Jak X, it's been quite some time since we've seen a Jak and Daxter game. Daxter made a solo appearance in the excellent PSP game that bore his name, but that was an adventure all the Ottsel's own without any help from Jak.
