5.0 out of 5 stars The Dynamic Duo return in HD goodness! 27 Feb. 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Jak and Daxter, in my humble opinion, rock. That's simply it. They're interesting, hilarious and bizzare but totally loveable and completely awesome. Quite a few adjectives there I know. But to be honest, there's so much to be said about the Jak games - especially the three of this collection - that my words alone are not enough to describe to you the brilliance of the series.

Let's start out simple: this is another addition to Sony's 'Classics HD' games on the PlayStation 3. These collections generally consist of 2 or 3 PlayStation 2 titles that were appreciated enough during their own time to reach legendary status - enough so to be deserved of a re-release on current-gen consoles whilst being upscaled to glorious high definition (720p in this case) and given full trophy support. The 'Jak and Daxter Trilogy' also comes with full stereoscopic 3D, if you're into that. In terms of the visuals, well, they're still last-gen games and so you're not going to mistake them for ones released last week. Still, in comparison to their PS2 counterparts (and in fact a number of other Classic HD titles available) they look great. The image has been cleaned up, edges are smoother, colours are vivid and bright and the overall effect is that they are very pleasing to the eye, especially for old games (the first title was released over a decade ago, in 2001!).

The basic story of the series revolves around the titular characters of Jak, a human/elf type creature, and Daxter, an 'ottsel' (half otter, half weasel) on their adventures through their troubled homelands. 'Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy' (AKA 'Jak 1') is remarkably similar to Naughty Dog's earlier ventures on the PlayStation platform: 'Crash Bandicoot'.

It's good to sometimes return to earlier, brilliant games and this HD collection of three, count 'em three, games does not disappoint!

For those who played Jak and Daxter during it's days on the PS2, you know that you simply have to own this collection. The games definitely get better as you play them but they all have two things in common - they are innocent and fun. Whilst it may be true that Jak II and Jak 3 are targeting a wider, older audience, they never stray too far from the funny dialogue, casts of vibrant characters and gorgeous visuals. To those who never played Jak and Daxter during it's heyday, where were you?! Nevermind, I'll sum up each game for you:

The first game in the trilogy, Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, is a simple and innocent platformer. For those gamers who like collecting things, this game will keep you busy for a while. There's lots to do, lots to collect and various different locations to explore. This is the most innocent game of the bunch but it still appeals to all ages! All of the games on this disc run at a smooth 60 frames per second and this one looks the best thanks to the vibrant colours. No flaws there.

The second game, Jak II is a little darker and definitely targeted an older audience. Introducing guns, powers, hubs and cities to explore and featuring a darker story, this game is in a different league than the first game, yet plays so similar. There's less platforming involved here but there is more of a combat element involved so the game feels more action packed. This game basically just took the original formula and decided it needed to grow up just a little bit.

Jak 3 follows Jak II's formula and improves on it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jak and Daxter HD collection Review! 25 Jun. 2012

If you've never played any of these games you sure as hell should start now if you own a PS3.
I Had the chance to play these games when they first released years ago and boy does the HD facelift do wonders for the visuals. From the precursor legacy to JAK 3 the graphics just keep getting better and better. They wont blow you away but they certainly make you wonder if this wasnt first released on a low budget PS3 game.

Game Summary:
Jak 1 Precursor Legacy:
I can only describe this game as a cross between Super Mario 64 and crash bandicoot. Like Super Mario you traverse differnt types of terrain and combat various enemys in order to get powercores (This games version of Stars) in order to progress the story. Unlike Super Mario 64 The whole game is open world which is very impressive given this game was released years ago. This means there are hardly any loading screens. This cast is cartoony and likeable however if your over 18 as i am and most gamers this game should still be played. Sure its a bit childish but so is Mario right? Everyone still loves that game. The Gameplay is solid throughout and the voice acting is stellar. Overall the first game in the series is unbelivably good with a lot of reply value - 9/10 (In my opinion)

Jak 2:
This differs quite drastically from the last game as this time it takes place in an open world like map much like Grand Theft Auto. It even includes vehicals and guns this time! The core story elements remain the same however this time it is more mature without giving away too much Jak has a load of anger issues.
