When Jak & Daxter: The Precursor Legacy was released early in the life of the PlayStation 2, I can't say I paid it much heed. It's main tagline was that it was from the creators of Crash Bandicoot...not a series I had any particular affection for, and to be blunt it simply looked like a generic 3D adventure game, the kind of disposable nonsense that made up about 50% of the console's library. However, after being assured by several people whose view on games I hold in high esteem, and seeing as it can be picked up for under a fiver these days, I thought I would give it a go - and I'm ever so glad I did. The game is set in a world something like a cross ... Read the complete review

PS2's first classic platformer turns out to be as great to play as it is to look at... Jak & Daxter's story isn't very complex, you play as Jak a young elf-like boy who one day along with his friend Daxter are exploring Misty Island. Weird things are going on at Misty Island and they want to discover what it is. On Misty Island they uncover a sinister plot to take over the lands and they also discover large vats of black goo, Daxter proceeds to fall in and is transformed into a small furry weasel type creature. And so starts the adventure to stop the plot of evil and turn Daxter back, along the way you're going to have to complete challenges to ... Read the complete review

Jak & daxter is the first really good platformer to apppear on any next-gen system. You should know what to expect from naughty dog, the makers of the original crash bandicoot games (crash 1-3) and im very pleased to say that this retains all the charm of the crash games. You play as Jak, running around trying to find a way to return your friend daxter, who got changed into a weasel, into his original form. Shortly into the game, you discover that some sages have been kidnapped, and so develops the silly universe saving idea. You know the drill, a standard story in platformers that is totally outlanish and noone ever cares about, its still here and you have to rescue ... Read the complete review

Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy is brought to us than none other than 'Naughty Dog' the creators of Crash Bandicoot. They chose to leave the development of the (not a big enough leap) new instalment of the Crash series to someone else while they set about this 3D roaming/platforming masterpiece. The premise of the gameplay is simple enough - Daxter has been turned into a furry sidekick and it's up to Jak (your character) to collect the Power cells to progress to the different islands/game areas and ultimately rescue Daxter from his furry fate. Daxter pokes fun and delivers punchline after punchline in this comic adventure. Jak ever the ... Read the complete review

Over the Christmas period, as always, there has been a flurry of new titles for nearly every system. For Playstation 2 this was a revolution as there had never been so many top quality titles released for it in one month. Alas, amongst all of the confusion and excitement a number of titles were sorely overlooked:one of them being Jak & Daxter: The Precursor Legacy. Jak & Daxter (J&D) is a platform adventure game similar in style to titles such as Super Mario 64, Zelda and Banjo Kazooie. It also shares similarities with a certain Crash Bandicoot, which comes as little surprise considering the same people responsible for the first three Crash games developed ...
