After completing their quest from the original title, Jak and Daxter are shot into another time and space and the future of their planet, and everything is different. The two are split up, with Jak thrown into jail by Baron Praxis, the ruler of Haven City. For two years Jak is experimented on with dark Eco, turning him into almost Hulk like character, mean and filled with rage.

Rescued by Daxter, the two must set off and find away to shut down the operation and get revenge for Jak's uncontrollable change. Along the way they will meet new friends and deadly enemies, but at least now Jak has something special on his side: weapons, and lots of them.

1001 Video Games

Jak II appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.


Possibly due to the incredible level of difficulty, the game included an unadvertised feature that made challenges and missions easier if you failed them repeatedly.
