by Trik My Fave Game Of All Time!!!
Hands down the best game I've ever played. Naughty Dog did such a good job with this. Naughty Dog really is my fave, They've got games like Crash Bandicoot also. But boy, when I played Jak And Daxter...my mind was blown away.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Fallensk8er The best action game ever!
Ive had this game forever. ever since it came out. it never ever gets boring. i beat it many of times before. it never gets old! its a really creative game. it has great graphics, its like real life. i have never sold this game once. this is a great start of a game series. its the best jak and daxter game out of all of them. whenever i have friends over, i let them play it for awhile, and they never want 2 stop playing it. if you have a PS2,then get this game. or if your about 2, or just bought the PS2. Then buy this as your first game. This game is A classic. and there is a game that is kind of like it in a way. called ratchet and clank. and the co. who made that game tried 2 copy this game. Dont ever waste your money on ratchet and clank. its the worst. its really cheesy. cheesy weapons, cheesy characters, cheesy humor. mostly everything is cheesy. But in Jak and Daxter theres nothing cheesy. Jak and Daxter is a Great game. Jak and Daxter has a great story line. its really interesting. Its a great Buy!
Rated 10 out of 10 by MetalHead great game
this is a game i thought i would never like, and it turned out to be tottaly the opposite. it has a great story, its pretty long and challenging at the time. the story is fun. and i love it becuase of the fact that is RPG action game. i lost this game once and i bought it again, now i cant find it and i'm buying it again, thats how fun it is to play. now the second one is a little more mature but is still constructed with the idea of being fun to play and challenging aswell. but to get there you must need to know what happened in this game so you can understand the second one. the game has good sound, it has good voice astors including spanish, english of course and italian i think. gameplay is fairly easy to manouver, not hard to control and easy to get use to. like i said before it is a challenge to beat this game i remember passing this game in one week at least, thats how long the story line is. boss battles are good except the last boss, that boss is alot harder to beat compared to the first ones. and its a great game and its worth buying it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by lbyrd13 One of the most important action games of all time...
I've had Jak & Daxter in my PS2 collection for several years now, and is still one (if not the) of the greatest adventure titles out there. Graphically, this game has held up marvelously even despite being almost a decade old, the environments are vibrant and largely detailed, and the game still runs incredibly smooth. The sound is also a strong point, the characters are voiced to perfection (despite the main protagonist being a mute) and the music fits very well and changes according to which area you are playing in. The controls are simple and very easy to learn, nothing too fancy here. My only true complaint about the game is the length...you'll be able to cruise through it in five to six hours, unless you're the kind of person who likes to collect every single little detail. That being said, I would very strongly recommend Jak & Daxter to any fan of the action genre, especially for the bargain price!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Zamarickz Great start for the Jak and Daxter series!
This is a very old PS2 game and it shows in the graphics, but don't let that discourage you from trying this fun game. Although it is very different from its sequels Jak 2, 3, and X it is a classic RPG that should be bought by all people that even have somewhat of an interest in RPGs. The story for Jak and Daxter is not very complex, in fact there really isn't much development at all until the last 20% of the game. Even though this is true you can't deny that this game is addicting and original. Since this game seems to be aimed at a younger audience it is pretty easy to complete objectives throughout the whole game. The last Boss battle is very annoyingly difficult though and will take a few trys usually. the ending of this game goes perfectly into the 2d Jak game which is extremely different form the first. But over all this game is totally worth while and all PS2 owners should pick up a copy.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Sly Lover Great Game!
Jak and daxter was my first PS2 game and is probably one of the best introductory PS2 games ever. The storyline was pretty good and easy to follow. The controls were pretty good, as well as the camera view. Though there were times where I got pretty annoyed at the game cause it was kinda hard, the rest of the game was awesome. The graphics and sounds were awesome when you think about the time when it was made and the length of the game was not too long or too short. The game itself is pretty funny with Jak and Daxter (an ottsel) though Samos and Keira get annoying at times. The bosses did not take too long to get over, about half an hour each. The game is followed by two other games and makes a great trilogy for platform/action/adventure lovers. Anyone who loves the Sly series, the Ratchet and Clank series, or a good game will love Jak and Daxter. This is a great game for your money!
Rated 9 out of 10 by SuperSlyparty Classic Jak game
Jak and Daxter TPL is the best Jak game i've played. Everyone praises Jak 3, when all you do is race and go to an arena. That gets really boring. I brought that game back and bought this, This is a true Action-Adventure Platformer. Jak 3 is combat racing and arena fighting- REPETETIVE! Jak TPL is much better and has a vast, open world. I got this 3 months after i got my ps3. I still play ps2. This is very fun and not repetetive. Don't get Jak 3, unless you like that kind of gameplay. Jak 3 might be ok, (I only played it for 5 hours and it was all the same, so i took it back.) I might try Jak 3 again and see if it gets better and has more platforming later on...I dont know. But Jak and Daxter TPL is a truly great game that offers more than arenas and racing. (Someone tell me if Jak 3 has platforming and action-adventure gameplay elements.) Go buy this game, you will be happy.
Rated 10 out of 10 by gamestopfreak Jak and Daxter rock!!!!!!!
I think this is a great game. Samos the sage is kind of annoying, becuase he always pushes Jak around. One thing kinda bugged me, and that was the way Keira dressed, but it wasn't that bad. I also think Jak is cute. My cousin thinks he's ugly, but I could not believe that! Maia was dressed really inappropriate! The first time I played this game, Gol and Maia really scared me and my 7-year-old brother. (He was 4 and I was like 9, I think.) I really like Daxter because he acts like he's the hero every time he's around Keira. I think the yellow sage is really funny, and it was so hilarious when they rescued him at Gol and Maia's citadel and he said,'' Who ever thought I would live to see the day when I needed to be rescued by a boy and his musckrat!'' If I could be in any video game, I would be in this one, but it would be called J.K.D.D. The precursor adventure!
Rated 10 out of 10 by YakPakAttack Next time you see it, BUY IT.
Jak and Daxter is definitely my favorite series of ps2 games. "The Precursor Legacy" is, in my opinion, the best in the series. It's story line is great, the character interaction is hilarious, and the large explorable world is very well done. The game reminds me a lot of the classic "Crash Bandicoot" games for ps1. In fact (excluding the punch move and rolling move), the controls are exactly the same as if you were controlling Crash. Even some of the sound effects and music seem are VERY similar. But that makes since because they are both by the same creator and developers. But all those similarities only make it better because the Crash Bandicoot series are some of the best games I've ever played. The only downside to this game is that it did not take long for me to beat it. But it was definitely fun the first time as well as the next few times.
Rated 10 out of 10 by wikigamer A great start to the series
Jak and Daxter is a platformer game made by the same exact creators of crash bandicoot in 2001. If you like crash bandicoot you will love Jak and daxter, well i am sorry to say this is a little better than crash because of the elements and the characters in this game. Also, it has it's good storyline. Jak accidentally put Daxter into the dark eko then he turned into a furry ottsel. After that they have to save the world and save Daxter! For one of the really early games for the PS2 this is still a good choice! You will definitely get used to the controls in this game. Don't listen to any downers. This game also has great graphics, for the time. This game was made in 2001 but has the graphics of a 2005 game, that was a shocker! You can't go wrong! Jak and Daxter awaits you to buy it at gamestop its only $5 in gamestop!
