Same battles, same missions, different title.
on July 19, 2005
This game was beaten in a month's time. Now don't get me wrong -it wasn't easy. There were times I wanted to kick myself for messing up so many times lol. And there were times I wanted to kick the game!
The problem with this game is that it's too much of the SAME thing: SAME battles, same missions, same people. The only thing that was different was the location and how everything has changed.
When Jak does get kicked out and into the Wastleland, he does have certain trials to make it clear to this Wastlelanders that he is "useful". Honestly, I've never seen that in a game - original.
I'm a fan of vibrant colors and Jak and Daxter (the first one) had a lot of that, but this one didn't so I was kinda taken off. Overall the game was really dark and depressing.
Personally, this game just seemed like a chore to me..sometimes it felt like an adventure, but it was just a huge chore, I couldn't wait to get rid of all the missions to finally get to the end. It was just one mission after another (with barely any exploring missions).
So overall, I wouldn't get the game - that is only if you are interested in completing the three games. But just expect the same thing with a little twist.
