Jak and Daxter Collection
3 Awesome Games!!! One Game Card!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The day i found out about the collection, i was actually was on Game Stop to buy jak 3, but i stumbled upon the collection which bundled jak and daxter, and jak 2 and 3. if jak and daxter and jak 2 had better graphics, i wouldn't ever put this game down. other than that it is game heaven.
Dont believe the reviews
At first i was discouraged about buying this with all the bad reviews and all,but after playing thru the first jak on my vita i can honestly say some people blow things way out of proportion.like that main menu glitch i had to try really hard to get it to happen to me and when it did it was just a mere graphics glitch that in no way was annoying and as far as lag goes unless your an fps (frames per second) junkie u wont notice it at all.in closing i would like to say if u like jak as much as i do u should definitely get this port.
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
Jak is back
This old ps2 game series was perfect for casual gamers.The only bad thing about it is that the backside touchscreen was not very useful in this game if you would touch the back the screen would zoom in and was very annoying.But other than that this game is very satisfying so i would recommend this game to any jak game series lovers.
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.
This is my first time playing the Jak and Daxter games, and I'm loving them so far! While most people have already played the games, this is my first time. The gameplay is excellent, the story is good, and the graphics are good. Like people have been complaining about, there is some lag here and there with the Vita version, but to me it's no big deal. I found that I was able to play through the entire first game with no significant issues. There were some frame rate issues and some lag, but those problems didn't get in the way of the gameplay itself. Overall, a very good collection of games. If you own a Vita, you'll definitely want to take advantage of this opportunity.
game is excellent
one of the best port ever mede
the graphics and gameplay are excellent
this is what game trilogy really is
A Solid Port of an Aging Series
I have nothing but fond memories of playing the original Jak games on my fat PS2 back in the early 2000s. That series, combined with Sly Cooper and Spyro, really laid the foundation in childhood for a love of games. However, that foundation came at many an evening of frustrated rage quits and anguish - a trait that has been carried over into this new Vita port, for better or for worse. The storyline is absolutely enthralling - Daxter in particular is one of the most memorable characters ever developed - and the voice acting is top notch. The music, though repetitive and a sign of the PS2's time, is surprisingly varied from location to location. However, the transition from a full Dualshock controller to the Vita is one that is rocky at best. Jumping is an absolute chore. Without the accuracy of a larger joystick, you'll find yourself plummeting well off of your intended target - regardless of your abilities in this game on the PS2 or the PS3 port. The camera is equally difficult to control for the same reason. Those gripes aside, however, all three games have stunningly crisp graphics that improve with each installment as well as moderate integration of touch controls. The additional Vita-exclusive trophies are great too. A worthy buy, considering you get three games, but be ready for a considerable amount of frustration over the hypersensitive aiming controls...even for seasoned gamers!
Classics On The Go
The only problem with this collection is some framerate issues. But if you can ignore those technical hiccups, it brings classic Jak and Daxter to life anywhere you please, perfect for hardcore fans of the series, but if you have not played it yet and you own a PS3, I recommend getting the PS3 version rather then the Vita version due to the framerate issues.
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)
