One year has passed since Jak and Daxter saved Haven City
from Kor and the attacking Metal Heads and the residents of
Haven City have grown to distrust Jak's dark powers. When
the palace is destroyed by a surprise Metal Head attack Jak
is banished to the desolate Wasteland. With Daxter and Pecker
bravely by his side, the three begin their next adventure
where the battle for the city has just begun...
3 sees the return of Jak and Daxter (possibly the funniest
sidekick in gaming history) as they fight their way through
the wastelands that surround Haven City, Haven City itself,
and the sewers beneath the city.
is equipped with an arsenal of new weapons with upgradeable
mods that enable players to increase their firepower as they
progress through the game. As Jak has been exposed to Light
Eco, players can now experience Jak's transformation to Light
Jak. With a glowing electric blue aura Light Jak introduces
new move sets, including the ability to glide great distances,
emit an energy to block enemy attack, and power up at anytime.
Dark Jak also returns with more capabilities, forcing Jak
to find a balance between light and dark.
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 volcano. Because of the distance
between areas vehicles play a large role - including numerous
unlockable dune buggies and airborne vehicles.
times you do start to feel you are just going through the
motions, the challenges are never that difficult and you won't
have to play through a level more that four or five times
in order to complete it. Most determined gamers will be able
to finish this game in a weekend. There are mini games within
the main game, but for the most part these are not that exciting
- but they do unlock some of the secrets. Not only that, but
each level brings a new style of gameplay. While in the early
levels you switch between the gladiator arena and driving
through the dessert, this soon gives way to a whole heap of
other gaming styles.
of the greatest things about this game, after the game play,
is the great sense of humour - usually down to Daxter's exploits.
Some of the levels where you have to control Dax are very
amusing. These include a water shoot ride as well as guiding
an armed missile, which has the terrified Daxter clinging
on for dear life.
graphics are amazing, the game play is fluid (no long waits
as each level loads), the voice artists are better than most
radio plays and the music is fantastic. What more can I say?
This is certainly the best of the Jak series to date.
