Anyone who likes platforming action adventure games from afar or wants to cherish the brilliance of past console generations should take a look at this game. It’s a no-brainer that franchise fans will choose because it deserves a place on your gaming wall. Our only regret is that we want Daxter’s PSP Adventure to be added to the disc to complete the franchise.
Jack and Daxter Collection [PS3] Detailed review
When a game is re-mastered in HD, only 2 questions are asked. First: how good the game looks and secondly, is the gameplay smooth enough to accept the current genre offer?
Today we have the most legendary action adventure platforming game series that has hit the PS2 (with the exception of Lombacks and its metal friends, not to mention a dirty raccoon!) Also intended to show that gaming was great in the last genre. Do you have a reputation?
The story of the trilogy follows the story of young Jack (who has aged through the series) in his quest to have something to do with the “previous” jibber-jabber. The story of the first game in the series (Jack and Daxter: The Precursors Legacy) will not hold you like the other two.
The story of the second (Jak 2: Renegade) acts as a hook and is much more straightforward with a few twists and turns. Jack and his faithful sidekick must save a boy who will fulfill a prophecy (duh!) And free the city of Haven from the Baron Praxis.
The climax comes when the whole story is tied together in the third game. Jack is expelled from Haven, picked up by a tribe in the desert whose leader has lost his son (catching someone?)
There are some moments without wasting time that will give “Look, I’m your dad!” And “Great Scott !!” A race for their money.
Overall the game’s story gets better with each repetition.
Gameplay by Jack and Daxter: The Precursors Legacy feels simple and slightly repetitive. Sometimes it’s the same running, jumping and puzzle solving with side missions and car scenes.
Things change dramatically when you play Jack 2 and 3 The gameplay is still the same but there are many more variations You have a hoverboard; There are several chase sequences, a GTA style map and Open World and several side missions that will take you away from the main story.
All of these elements add longevity to the game’s lifespan. Adding trophy support adds excitement to hungry gamers achieving 100%.
All in all, Jack 2 and 3 have grown nicely in keeping the gameplay fresh. It won’t take you long to get bored with the first one. Our favorite of the Jack 3 3 is because it combines the open world with hints of racing and some fun but complex platforming elements.
Out of the box, all three games look great. If you own a copy of the games on your PS2, we recommend that you watch them before putting them in the HD version so you can see how great the games look in HD. The Jack 2 and 3 look really great with vibrant colors, smooth cut scenes and virtually zero load time.
Jack 1, however, is not so old. There are times when textures look square instead of smooth, and backgrounds, though lively, look very simple.
Voice acting at the top of the franchise. Daxter is still our favorite funny character to hit a gaming franchise. From the first game to Jack 3, Austin Powers like his funny one liner, sarcastic remarks and attraction to women will at least bring a smile to your lips.
The background score is a nice tune in the first, which gets a little darker as the series progresses.
Cheetah hangouts among the guards, a fantastic fantasy of frightened citizens and characters enliven Haven City and all its inhabitants.
The sound and thrust of Jack’s fist weapon has a satisfying note to them.
Anyone who likes platforming action adventure games from afar or wants to cherish the brilliance of past console generations should take a look at this game. It’s a no-brainer that franchise fans will choose because it deserves a place on your gaming wall. Our only regret is that we want Dexter’s PSP Adventure to be added to the disc to complete the franchise.
