Description official descriptions

Jak II is a 3D action platform game and sequel to Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy. 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 an almost Hulk-like character, mean and filled with rage.

Rescued by Daxter, the two must set off and find a way to shut down the operation and get revenge for Jak's uncontrollable change. Along the way they will meet new friends and deadly enemies (known as Metal Heads), but at least now Jak has something special on his side: weapons, and lots of them. Including a shotgun, sniper rifle, machine gun and a powerful blast weapon. Gameplay includes platforming, vehicle racing, rescue missions, hover boarding, playing mini games and shooting at various enemies (including boss fights).

A really good sequel game of Jak & Daxter.

The Good
Almost everything. The environment, graphics, city, storyline, characters and Daxter. Everything is great. There is almost everything that a Jak & Daxter fan can want (expect). The musics, voiceovers... And it's long enough. So you can play it until satisfied. There are also a lot of extras. Precursor orbs, quests etc... If you collect P.O. you unlock secrets like; Scrap book, Hero mode, Scene acts... And if you do quests you gain P.O.'s.

The Bad
Almost nothing. But there are quite bad things too. Some missions are really hard, you can drive NUTS! The citizens are a little lunatic (especially the ones driving) but that's not a big problem.

The Bottom Line
If you are a J&D fan you "must" play this game and experience it. If you don't you lose a lot. But if you aren't a J&D fan you can start with this game. But you have play the 1st game later. 'Cause there's a storyline and you must complete it.

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.
