"Improved but not better"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Let me just say this. The beginning to this game is ultimate. There is no way it could have been better. There's now two cities and a huge desert. It is about four (my estimate) times bigger than haven city. And what's more, the sand actually acts like sand. If drive sideways along a dune, you'll find yourself slipping.

When you get called back to Haven City, it is amazing. Everything has changed. One section is only rubble, one section has been consumed by the Metal Heads and one section has been done over entirely. Everywhere you go you will see Blue Guards battling Red Robots battling Metal Heads. Tor gives you a whole bunch of quests to help your side win.

However, the rest of the game was not to the same standard. Nothing was really developed as much as Jak II. The new characters only appear briefly as well as the old. The end approaches way too fast and the replay value is a lot less than the previous title.

Last thing. I think the creators could learn a lot from Ratchet and Clank. Not graphics or story wise but gameplay. Having no strafing is frustrating.

"Great game, good story."
5 stars"

Word of warning if you're a great fan of the series. After the recent television ad campaign you may be forgiven for thinking this is a resolution to the series. As with what the other guy has written, many beleive this is the last Jak game, yet Naughty Dog have confirmed many times that another two games are on the way. They will be a remake of the original for release on the PSP, and a new game for the PS3, tying up the story behind the Legend of Mar (I wont say any more as it will ruin one of the story elements in this game).

This game is however the final chapter in the Precursor trilogy, and for those wanting to find out about the true identity of the precursors, this wont dissapoint. Just expect a few glaring contradictions with the ending of the last game.

Not enough can be said about the graphics of this game. While there is a notable increase in the amount of vertical tearing in the game (put in place to keep the frame rate running smoothly), most of the classic platforming levels run perfectly, and you'll find yourself staring just at the backgrounds themselves.

Its easy to see the production value that has been put into the games cut scenes. These are such a sight to behold, that you will always be eagerly waiting for the next one to come. The character animators at Naughty Dog have outdone themselves again.

The gameplay was what many complained about in Jak 2, with there being a large number of spikes in the difficulty. This is where Naughty Dog spent most of their time working on. The gameplay is pretty much perfect, and you wont find many a game more fun to play than this one.

Created and developed by Naughty Dog, Jak 3 is the team's follow-up to their best-selling title, Jak II TM and their Greatest Hits PlayStation2 debut title, Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy. Together, Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy and Jak II have sold more than 2.5 million units worldwide, both playing a part in revolutionizing the action platform genre. Combining a variety of genres including driving, adventure, action-platform, puzzles, strategy and exploration, Jak 3 promises to deliver one of the most entertaining and interactive experiences to gamers this holiday season!

In Jak 3, nothing is the same. The story begins with Jak's banishment to the Wasteland, a desert environment five times the size of Haven City, with multiple areas including mines and a volcano. Given the enormity and variance in terrain, vehicles play a large role as off-road transportation is introduced, fueled by a true-to-life physics engine. An action-adventure game featuring story-based missions that integrate a dynamic plot with gameplay, the city's new look is just the first surprise in Jak 3 as the game unveils more guns, vehicles, additional dark powers and the introduction of light powers. Players will also find a cast of both new and familiar characters that will slowly be revealed as Jak and Daxter begin another adventure that will leave them fighting for their lives.

One year has passed since Jak and Daxter saved Haven City from Kor and the attacking Metal Heads, yet Haven City is still immersed in deadly chaos as three groups fight for control of the streets. The people of Haven City have grown to distrust Jak's dark powers, and as rumors boil of Jak's ties with Krew and Kor, the city blames Jak for its current woeful circumstances. When the palace is destroyed by a surprise Metal Head attack, even Ashelin cannot protect Jak as the High Council's power broker, Count Veger, forces Jak into banishment for life to the desolate Wasteland. Upon Jak being flown to the harsh island and dropped off to fend for himself, he discovers that Daxter and Pecker have discreetly followed him to his proclaimed lifetime of hell. With Daxter and Pecker bravely by his side, the three begin their next adventure as they wander the Wasteland and along the way encounter perilous situations, violent battles and devastating consequences.

  • The new Wasteland features a desert with multiple areas, including a mine, volcano and the desert city of Spargus that is home to fierce inhabitants.
  • True to the Jak and Daxter franchise, players will be immediately thrown into a compelling storyline, fast-paced action and seamless adventure.
  • Vehicles play a large role in the game, as Jak and Daxter will unlock a variety of vehicles, including off-road transportation. All feature complex, simulated vehicle physics and come equipped with weapons.
  • Not only will players take on the role of Jak, they can also play as Daxter, who has an extended role within the game during level-specific areas.
  • Now that Jak has been exposed to Light Eco, players can transform themselves into Light Jak, with amazing new abilities including a move that allows Jak to glide with the addition of large angelic wings.
  • Dark Jak powers also return, as Jak must find a balance between Light Eco and Dark Eco.
  • All of Jak's weapons from Jak II return with the addition of two devastating upgrades for each gun type.
  • Haven City has changed dramatically since players last saw it. After a Metal Head attack destroyed the palace and demolished the majority of the city, players will notice some major aesthetic differences that will alter gameplay.
  • The Titan Suit and Jetboard return to provide Jak and Daxter additional ways to get around their dangerous surroundings.
  • Jak 3 feature new technology including Ragdoll Physics, which will allow gamers to observe a unique death for each enemy that is killed, cloth dynamics, Wasteland terrain renderer, revamped spooling and memory management scheme, and massively overhauled rigid-body physics system.
  • Players will enjoy more than 60 minutes of movie quality in game cinematic.
