Story
The dynamic duo, Jak and Daxter are back in an all-new adventure on the PSP system that picks up the action where the previous trilogy left off. Whether battling Sky Pirates in a customizable aircraft or blasting Aeropeans with the punishing Gunstaff weapon, Jack and Daxter’s journey will take them beyond the edge of the Brink — and into a war bigger than they ever could have imagined.

Gameplay
The Lost Frontier is filled with trademark Jak and Daxter gameplay. In the form of either Jak or Daxter players engage in a combination of mandatory and optional missions where according to the level played, they will face action or puzzle centric situations, and in some cases a combination of the two. Levels played as Jak lean more towards action gameplay, with players engaging in combat in the air and on the ground as they platform, and wielding a customizable gunstaff, Jak's weapon of choice. Levels featuring Daxter require more puzzle-solving skills. In both though, players must utilize the power of Ecos, the same elemental substances found throughout the game series. Categorized by color, Eco is responsible for and used to enhance a variety things, including life, motion, strength, power. In addition, the mysterious dark and light Eco are extremely important due to their ability to be used as the basis for hidden character-specific moves, power, weapons and technologies.

What happened here? This Jak & Daxter game for the PSP was developed by High Impact Games, the same developer who created the two awesome Ratchet and Clank games for the PSP. But something went amiss with The Lost Frontier. It doesn't even come close to matching the quality of the two Ratchet and Clank games, and it's hands down the worst Jak & Daxter game to date. Not to say that it's unplayable; it can be quite entertaining in places. But the game as a whole suffers from a lack of polish and sloppy gameplay mechanics.

The biggest problems with the game are the camera and using the d-pad to change weapon modes and eco powers. The camera is programmed to switch into preset positions at certain parts in the levels, and this often causes problems. It would have been much better if High Impact had just allowed the player total camera control at all times. Let the player screw it up, not the game itself. The problem with the d-pad is that there are simply too many functions mapped to it, and it's too awkward to use in the heat of combat. The player uses the d-pad to do three things: change weapon modes, change eco powers, and activate an eco power. Having to take your thumb off the analog nub to do this means Jak is a sitting duck to attacking enemies. A much better solution would have been to have a quick select system as in the Ratchet and Clank games. One button pauses the game and brings up a quick select ring with the available weapon modes and eco powers. The player chooses with the analog nub and quickly resumes gameplay. The L and R shoulder buttons could have been used to switch back and forth between a weapon ring and an eco power ring. How somebody didn't think of this is baffling.

amazing game, played through it twice, one of the best for the PSP. The camera is sometimes frustrating, which will cause you to die a few too many times, but the checkpoints aren't as bad as they are in the ratchet and clank series.

I have the whole Jak & Daxter series and play it over and over again, you can learn something new each time. I love the story line and you really get connected with the characters, they almost seam real to you. My PS2 broke and I miss playing those games so much that I'm going to buy a new PS2 just for those games, that's how good they are. This was the first time I bought things from Amazon and I will continue from now on. The items were in great condition and came very quickly. My family have been buying from Amazon for years and told me to try it and now I'm hooked. I'll do all my Christmas shopping there too.

A very good game. It feels like a mixture of the original Jak and Daxter and Jak 2. Aside from the sometimes awkward camera controls, this is an excellent addition to the Jak and Daxter franchise but this time for PSP. It feels like the other Jak games, the music, voices, high quality cinematics, all of it looks great and fits the series. I do agree with the other reviewers saying that the story is a bit weak compared to the other games, and it also is a bit shorter. I've only played for an hour and a half and I'm 25% done with the entire game. The dogfighting is a cool added feature and the world is large for a PSP game. Overall, it's a great game. Highly recommended.

I have been waiting for this game for quite a while. I was hoping for the game to be on PS3 with great graphics like Ratchet and Clank. Then when I found out that Naughty Dog was not producing this game I had a feeling the game would not be as good and I was right. The graphics are OK for the PSP, but lacking for the PS2. The story line is OK. The camera is not very good. No first person view. I'm not enjoying this game as I did with past games. I hope Naughty Dog will reclaim J&D and give us the great games we have come to expect.

I absolutely love this game! Loved it when I was younger and even more so now! I can't even describe the thrill. It was delivered 2 days before expected delivery and packages brand new. Same as you'd buy it from a game store

It's okay as a game itself but if you are a Jak and Daxter fan like me you will be very disappointed with the game play, story line, art, and voices. it doesn't have the same feel as the other Jak games. p.s. Still hoping for naughty dog to pick up the Jak series again. Think about it Jak 4: The Journeys of Mar!!!

After an extremely long wait for a new entry to the "Jak and Daxter" series, finally "The Lost Frontier" arrives in 2009. However, there are too many problems with this game that prevent it from holding a candle to the other games in the series. The biggest problems come from 2 factors: Jak's new voice actor(Josh Keaton), and the introduction of Dark Daxter. Josh Keaton's voice acting is among the worst I've ever heard . . . period. Where was Mike Erwin for this title? And Dark Daxter is nothing but a sick joke and I'll just leave it at that. In addition, the story feels like something that was regurgitated during the course of a 30-minute board meeting.

But there are some good aspects that still made the game a fairly decent distraction as I continue waiting for the quality "Jak and Daxter" experience I'm looking for. For instance, the musical score is fantastic, the best heard in any of the games so far(it's only too bad that the music was more epic than the story actually was...in that sense it was sorta mismatched). The flying missions, which consumes 60% of game time, is actually a ton of fun and I didn't mind that this was how the majority of the game played. This was where the game earned most of its value. And of course, being a Daxter fan, I absolutely loved how realistically fuzzy Daxter appeared in the cutscenes. I suspect other big Daxter fans will feel the same.

OVERALL

Pros: excellent score, the flying missions, fuzzy Daxter, polished cutscenes
Cons: Josh Keaton as Jak, Dark Daxter, lackluster story
