Jak and Daxter Collection
Frustrating to say the least
I have never played any of these games on consoles so I don't know what they are really like, but based on my experience from playing most of the first game in this collection it is not like this. I had very few issues with the poor jumping and bad camera through most of the game, but the last level was practically impossible to play with such a terrible camera and the jumping being inconsistent. I would jump on moving platforms above me and the camera would stay in the same place, leaving me to fall to my death over ten times. Then there is the fact that you would try to jump on platforms and Jak would float next to it before just dropping down instead of grabbing on. This section of the game can be as bad as Sonic 06, but more frustrating because at least Sonic had some comedic value. I'm ver tempted to not play the other two in fear of the same issues. I have never been this frustrated by a video game in my life and this experience has turned me off to this entire series
This is first time the original Jaks are on a hand-held device! This game is a must play and it has been fully redesigned to be supported on the PS Vita!
Countless hour of gameplay
Fun game from childhood great for kids or adults one of the best games on the vita hope to see Kingdom hearts on here soon like this
Something for your Vita
I'm not the biggest fan of the Jak series, but I did enjoyed the original Jak 3, great game. Seeing this package contains 3 great games and I own a Vita. This looks like a good game to pick up to play on the go.
JAK AND DAX ARE BACK!!!
I gotta say... This is a must-have,for vita owners! Jak and Daxter,on the go,who doesn't like,that? :)
Great Games Come Back
I had these games on my PS2 and still my favorites, something I could never give away. I still play them because they are that amazing and fun. JAK games are basically RPG games. They have a great story line and pretty good action. I am really excited about this and as soon as its out i'm picking it up. If they make a Ratchet and Clank collection I will for sure get it too.
ive been waiting for a ps classic to show up for vita! was kinda hopin ratchet and clank but its my 2nd fave.
Don't believe the "reviews", try it for yourself
This game is fantastic.
The ports are... alright.
(Following on the first game, Jak and Daxter: Precursor Legacy)
Having never played the console games I don't know how the Precursor legacy is supposed to feel, but it's probably a bit smoother, while the game is 100% playable when you get used to some jump button inconsistencies and a camera best left ignored.
A lot of people are talking about framerates and while it's noticeable in some noncrucial areas in the very beginning, the game becomes smoother as you progress and by the 2nd area you're not noticing problems.
I'm still working on it, but I'm in love, it reminds me of the era I grew up with, a kind of Banjo Kazooie platforming that is simply lost in today's world (It will probably become "Retro indie" later as people bring it back)
That said, if you've already played the first one, feel free to skip it till the controls get patched.
Jak 2 and beyond:
Here's where it gets good!
All those problems I mentioned??? GONE
Jak 2 is smooth like cream, whereas the jerky camera and the misjumping in Jak 1 set me off and made me think it was my system.. Jumping into even the intro of Jak 2 makes you see the light, it's a REALLY top notch game, I am way glad I got this on my vita, this portable is hot.
I highly recommend this game, iffy port or not, your purchase should spark their compulsion to make the content smoother and eventually everyone will be happy and people who are believing the low reviews at launch will miss out on a gem that's come to the Vita. Now yes, Let's hope for more 3D Platforming *crossing fingers for R&D Collection Vita* (Or Spyro HD, hehe)
Choppy unfinished port
The Jak series is excellent, but this port by Mass Media falls flat. The game runs at a very low frames per second, and the controls are bad. If you are a fan of Jak this will certainly sour your love for it. I bought this game for $30 and it was nearly immediately dropped to $20, the reason being how horrible it is! I was extremely disappointed by the game and you will be too, especially if you have ever played them at full speed. Not worth a purchase.
Good for collectors
This great for people who like to have the whole collection of a series because, Jak and Daxter the lost frontier and Daxter are available on the vita. So now you can play the whole set on one system! Now I'm glad that I didn't buy Jak collection on PS3 so I can play the entire story from one place anywhere I want.
