First a warning. This game is nothing like Jak and Daxter. The creators of that family fun game decided to aim at a different audience -- the prime gaming audience -- which is teen and preteen boys. So there is coarse language, stealing of vehicles, disrepect of authority figures, lots of gun shooting (with weapon upgrades, machine guns, etc.)... in short, everything that would appeal to a 10-14 year old boy, but not necessarily what you want your young child to be playing. So in that sense, I was disappointed with this game. I did not think it was appropriate for my children at this time. And some of the humor of Jak and Daxter has been replaced with teenage angst.
The game still is fun and extremely challenging for adults who enjoyed playing Jak and Daxter. The positive is that the game is more challenging than the original. The negative is that the game is mission-oriented, which means that instead of exploring a huge world and discovering your objectives, your play is based around accomplishing specific missions which are identified for you. It is almost like being at work (and some of the missions are like work!), but the challenge level is so high, the game definitely will keep you on your toes.
