Product Description

Product Description

You're Jak, a quiet hero in the making. Jak and sidekick Daxter are playing on Misty Island a wee bit close to a pit of Dark Eco. Daxter falls in and crawls out looking like a fused otter and weasel. The two visit the village's local wise man, the Green Sage, to transform him back. But the Magical Ports from one island to the other have shut down, and the only way to reach the more knowledgeable wise men that could help him is to embark on an adventure, of course. In every region there is a strange conspiracy around the concept of Eco that adds another layer to the game. Dark Eco is deadly, or at the very least, mystical and strange. Jak and Daxter's world is filled with all kinds of the mysterious element known as Eco. Green Eco gives life, and it's contained in chests and containers all across the many environments the pair encounters. Blue Eco provides energy, speed and opens doors, and Red and Yellow Eco provide energy and the ability to cast fireballs, too. Races, a collection of minigames, enemy chases and timed events are all part of the gameplay.

While exploring some ancient ruins on a forbidden island off the coast, Jak's best friend, Daxter, is knocked into a vat of Dark Eco--a terrifying and deadly substance that could corrupt the world forever--transforming him into a weasel-like rodent. The village sage, Samos Hagai, tells Jak that there's only one person who holds the secrets to transforming Daxter back. Now the pair must set out on a quest in search of a wise old sage who has the power to restore Daxter to his former self.

Plunge into a world of adventure, exploration, and discovery. Embark on a magical, often harrowing journey that challenges gamers to test their wits and skills, allowing them to discover twisted plots and battle the evil within. Delivering nothing but the best ingredients for a game that's set to be one of the biggest titles of the year, Jak and Daxter features great character designs and animations, innovative gameplay mechanics, superior technology, and absolutely stunning graphics. Jak and Daxter pushes the power of the PlayStation2, offering an engaging, immersive entertainment experience that stretches the imagination.

I am a 40-something gamer and as an adult gamer time is limited. I usually have a million and one things all in competition for my precious free time. That is why I love Jak and Daxter. The game is very easy to learn, only took me about 5 minutes, and is straight forward in communicating the mission objectives. The best attribute in this game is the ability to save anywhere! There are times when I only have a hour or a half hour to play any games. A game that requires I play for a minimum of two hours before hitting a save point is a game I would tend to avoid. But Jak and Daxter and its "save anywhere" function is just what all adult gamers have been looking for. But be warned, this game is highly addictive. So, while you may sit down with the intention of playing for only a hour, several will go by as you become totally immersed in the great graphics and hilarous voice acting. I just can't wait to see what that little guy will say next, he cracks me up! I highly recommend this game for all ages, and especially for busy adult gamers who are looking for a quick game fix inbetween PTA meetings.

In a world full of violent and sexual, mature PS2 games (and i dont mind those), it seems as if the PS2 was meant for teenagers on up. Well not now. Jak and Daxter is a flawless PS2 game, reminding me somewhat of Super Mario 64, Banjo Kazooie, or Crash Bandicoot. This is a nice breath of fresh air for PS2 owners... something your little brother can play, have a great time, laugh, without hesitating. and it is a good game, dont get me wrong. one of the best games ive ever played! its self explanitory, easy, and tons of fun. Once you get used to everything on the fist stages, it gets harder though, so it isnt a total walk in the park. there are great voice overs, and their worlds are very vibrant and have lots of color. Its the first good game for PS2 for all ages. While crash bandicoot on the PS2 really disappointed me, try this one instead.

Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy is brought to you by the company that made Crash Bandicoot. It shows the same playful, all-ages fun adventure style. Definitely lots of fun!
Your main characters are Jak, a teenage boy, and Daxter, his young friend who early on gets turned into a reddish weasel. You're told by the great sage that the only way to turn Daxter back into a human is to go on a quest to reach the other sages.
There are of course many subquests along the way, some involving the sage's sexy daughter, Kira. You need to gather up 'orbs' which are sort of a currency for the land, and power cells, which let you power various devices. There is also 'eco', a form of power which comes in four colors. It allows you to heal, to run more quickly, to breathe fire, and do other special activities.
The graphics are great, from running through water to climbing up mountains and walking through villages. The sounds work well too, with the wooden bridges and sandy beaches and ocean swims all seeming very realistic. The background music is catchy and fun.
This isn't a dark, somber 'save the world against zombies' type of game. It's very lighthearted, with wisecracking and simple tasks. The tasks you perform make you feel like you're really helping people out, and the challenges are doable. The save system makes it easy to try again if you fail the first time. It's really a game that both adults and kids can play together and both enjoy.
Highly recommended!

I'm so happy this game finally came out. After playing the 1st Crash Bandicoot game I was instantly hooked to Naught Dog! When I heard Naughty Dog wasn't making CRASH any more I really got upset. To top it off when I brought the latest Crash (Wrath of Crotex), let just see I was very, very unhappy with it (please see Crash review).
Anyway, Jak & Daxter is the latest and greatest creation from Naughty Dog. One word describes this game FABULOUSSSSSSSS! The graphics are outstanding and the game play is very fluent. If you are or were a Fan of the Crash games then you can't let this game pass by. It has everything Crash has to offer and more. The biggest change is that you can roam all over the level, before with crash you had to stick to a predetermined path. The graphics are outstanding (way better than CRASH 5)! Also, there are no load times that I recall (unlike CRASH 5).
Once again this is a must have game for the PS2. Moms and Dads don't be worried, this is a game that the whole family can enjoy.
Fabulous Job Naughty Dog!

Jak and Daxter is an amazing game. If you like Mario 64 or Zelda Crash Bandicoot, This is a game for you.
Graphics:(5/5) Top notch. Good job Naughty Dog. Some of the best graphics I've seen on PS2. Very crisp and clear with vibrant colors.
Gameplay:(4/5) Go around and defeat enemies, solve puzzles sorta game. Could be a few more enemies and bosses though. The really nice thing is that once the game is initally loaded, there are no load times between levels (unlike the old crash games). Again, good job with this Naughty Dog.
Sound:(4/5) I wish there was more background music. When it's there it's nice. Some of the sounds are annoying but most are good. Also, Daxter, Jaks sidekick will help you with certain puzzles as he sits on your shoulder throughout the game.
Replay Value:(4/5) The game isn't all that long. If you're a casual gamer like me and only play once in a while then this game could take months to beat but if you are hardcore, it could probably be beat in 24 hours. Something that adds to the replay value is going back and getting the eggs and power cells. Also, it would be fun to completely start over just to play some of the mini games.
Overall:(4.5/5) Great game. Must own PS2 title. Probably a Top 10 PS2 game. In the same league as GTA3, GT3, FFX, THPS3.
