Give it to me straight lads. Does it hold up or should I skip directly to 2?
>>540378523It's a perfectly average collectathon platformer with tons of polish.
>>540378523this is the only good game in the whole naughty dog game collection.
>>540378523It's kino, play it anon
>>540378737>filtered this hard by 2
>>540378523It's about equal with 2 I think definitely worth playing3 though...yikes
Play 1 and skip the rest of the series. I'm not joking. The next good game made by Naughty Dog is Uncharted 2.
>>540378523All of the games are great versions of what they set out to do. Except for Jak 3 which has you repeating the most annoying missions over and over like collecting artifacts during a sandstorm.
>>5403785231 > 3 > 2but play all of them, they're good games
>>540378523It's the best game in the series, and probably the best 3D platformer ever made by a western developer.
>>540378523its great. Solid platformer that doesn't overstay its welcome and still holds up by todays standards.
does kiera have blue pubes tooalso kiera's hair color is my favorite color, which is also why im interested if her pubes are the same color
>>540378523Yes it's a fantastic 3D platformer. 2 is basically a comlpletely different game but still great. 3 is OK but has too much vehicle shit. Ironically, X is a racing spinoff and is fucking fantastic. I haven't played Daxter. The Lost Frontier doesn't exist.
>>540378885>The next good game made by Naughty Dog is Uncharted 2kys
>>540378523They're all good to me honestly, fucking hate the retards who shit on 2 so much. It wasn't even that bad and didn't mind the mature tone, they didn't want the same exact fucking game as a Jak 1 or you retards will bitch anyways.
>>540378523It's the best game of the series. The second and onward are what you get when Naughty Dog decided that they wanted to make a Grand Theft Auto clone and use one of their existing IPs to do it.
>>540379080Vehicle shit with terrible physics you forgot to add. The wasteland was just a mess I wish never existed.
>>540379000my first sex dream over a fictional character as a kid was about Keira. True story.
>tfw can't see this game and not instantly imagine the car keys
>>5403785232/5 game. A "plodder", not a platformer. Buy Kya: Dark Lineage exclusively on PS2 instead.
>>540378523One of the few games that should have ended after the first title. Another on that list would be Kingdom Hearts.
>>540379317ignore this anon and his shit taste
>>5403788463 was made for people who wanted to play more Jak but got filtered by 2
>>540379258I blame Air Canada.
>>540378603>AverageIt's almost literally a direct evolution of crash >>540378846Never understood peoples issues with 3. Game is good, I can understand people disliking the new setting + the sand dune shit but I liked it a lot
>>540378523It's the best one by far
>>540378523This is the ONLY one worth playing. 2 and 3 are shitty hybrids between ratchet and GTA
>>540379368Jak sucks. Best part of the game is the fishing minigame. Naughty Dog always made mediocre games. Get Maximo, Kya: Dark Lineage, or Shinobi for good platforming on PS2. t. expert
real talk, thoughKeira > Tess >>>> Ashelin
>>540378523Jak and Daxter is perfectly average. It isn't very long or anything and worth a play through. I enjoy 2 and 3 way more than the first game though. There isn't really anything memorable in the first game.
>>540380020I think Jak's great and you're wrong, but I totally forgot about Maximo and so rather than argue with you, I'm just going to say: based anon
>>540378523it's literally the best in the trilogy.
>>540379257>>540379000>>540380058Keira is by far the worst girl and I have no idea why you retards like her. Her voice is basically nails on a chalkboard.
>>540380058>all whiteit was a better time
>>540378523Yeah it fucking holds up. In fact, it holds up better than 2. In Jak 2, every level is "that one level."
>>540380387we're on an anime website, is it any surprise people go for the nails on chalkboard voice vibe
You should play 1 and skip 2 and 3
>>540378523>tfw you'll never again be 8 years old coming in from the cold after helping shovel snow, making some hot chocolate, then plopping down to play Jak & Daxter while your dad watches
>>540380484I'm convinced these posts are made by lovers of Jak 2 who hate that the game gets shat on frequently and to falseflag people into thinking it is some super hardcore release when it was in fact piss easy
>>5403785232's driving and shooting are fucking bad, i don't know why people talk it up so highly
2 and 3 were absolute garbage, there's a reason ND dropped the franchise, don't let boomers trick you into thinking othwise
>>540378823I’ve tried to play 2 numerous times because 1 is incredible, I get bored.
>>540380582Zoomcall him right now, dust off your PS2 and play some Jak with him watching.
>>540379179So they made a boring bloated game instead?
>>540380387her voice kinda reminded me of sugar from YTV
I love the entire Jak series, even had fun with X. Feel the same way about Ratchet and Clank 1-3 and Deadlocked.Ignore zoomers and jade statues, go have some fun with games that have actual soul and aren't pretentious.
>>540381018X was some good shit online in the first year, then the playerbase died out.
>>540381018X is a great game, definitely not built for competitive play but still good.
>>540379234>Drive in a straight line with the jumping buggy thing.>It starts drifting.
>>540379685>It's almost literally a direct evolution of crashYes but Crash was a tight test of your platforming skills in the context of a linear level.Jak is alright, but none of it even reaches the heights that Crash did in terms of pure platforming apart from maybe the last area.
>>540381018They told the fans of the first game “we know you liked the platforming but we know what you need instead: vehicles”. That’s pretty pretentious.
>>540381503Mind providing a link to that quote?
>>540381607Have you played 2?
>>540378523It's holds up I just beat it a month or so ago.
>>540381503Except when 2 actually does a platforming level it's almost always better than anything 1 has to offer.
>>540381503Least the guns felt good and meshed with the existing melee/platforming mechanics the first game had.
>>540378523You should play 1 and never play 2 or 3.
>>540381918I wasn't a fan of them adopting guns, because Ratchet already did that far better
>>540381647Yeah, but not wanting to retread the same water is just the natural progression of creativity, that's not pretentious. I loved Jak and Daxter but I was fucking pumped for Jak 2 after seeing it in PSM. I think a lot of were growing up at the right time to hit the edgy phase as the second game came out.
>>540382218Problem with Ratchet for me is those games were always a tad on the easy side.
>>540382410I'm a Nintenbabby that owned a PS2. What's the Playstation Magazine like?
>>540382218>far betterThey do it differently, Ratchet is a third person shooter, all of its mechanics revolve around shooting and combat, it just has some platforming elements.Jak, even in 2 and 3, is still a platformer first, so the guns are better suited for the type of movement he has.
>>540378603I fucking hate Poland so I will not be playing this game#KeepPolesOutOfGames
for me, it's Sly Cooper
>>540380620I hate Jak 2 and it's not because the levels are hard, it's because they're tedious. They are less fun than J&D or Jak 3 levels every fucking time.
>>540382218Could you manually aim guns in Jak 2? I can't recall if it was anything more than just shooting in the direction you're holding, compared to R&C having its strafe mode and up/down aim.
>>540378523I honestly enjoyed it. The zoomer portions were fun as fuck. I love how the engine roars louder and louder the more blue eco you collect. If I didn't suck at modeling I'd try to make a zoomer racing game.
>>5403795323 was 100% easier than 2
>>540382890no, they had a laser sight with heavy aim assist and you just looked toward your enemies, which to be fair, like this anon points out >>540382601 plays to its strengths. But still, Ratchet had a better arsenal and the shooting felt better, so it still felt daft that Jak stepped on its toes in that way
>>540382785My nigga. Sly was always the best of the 3
>>540382890Nah the game had auto aim.Tho desu the best strategy was always to do the spin + rifle combo.
Precursor Legacy = Jak II > Jak III
>>540383242I only knock Jak 2 under Jak 1 solely because of the bs difficulty spikes in certain missions. Jak 1 (and 3) was a far smoother slope.
>>540383242no, it'sPL = Jak 2 (with goatee disabled via precursor orb bought cheat) > Jak 3 > Jak 2 (with goatee enabled)
>>540378523Its holds up better than the other 2 actually. A light hearted action adventure thats pretty fun. 2 and 3 are edgemaster gta clones so if u didnt play them as a kid i wouldnt recommend them. Although 3 eases off the edge
>>540383242Jak 3 is my fav game in trilogy, but Jak 1 & 2 are better games.(Tho some checkpoints are too brutal in 2)
>>540380058This order but the exact opposite
>>540379685>Never understood peoples issues with 32, you mean. 3 is incredibly overrated.
What is the Jak and Daxter equivalent to this video?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kD_QhYgIA4
>>540380901I get so fucking pissed that they changed Keira's VA in Jak 3. Tara made her sound terrible and obnoxious.
>>540385158>1:21:54 video crying about video games lmao pathetic
>>540378523>>540378929This anon’s answer pretty much. There’s some level of cringe to the edginess in 2, and some of the gameplay when it game to enemy spawns were unfair, but other than that all 3 make for a solid 8/10 experience.
>>540378523all three are good, play themjust be aware of the change from 1 to 2>>540380484there's really only 2 or 3 notably rough parts of 2, most everything else is fine>>540384964I had considered 3 my favorite and I do still really like the weapon upgrades and war in Haven city, you can really tell they were more pushed for time than before or something. None of the enemies aside from the dark makers you encounter very late in the game are built around the stronger weapons and abilities you have, even without the health drops and free healing with light jak it's too easy. And light jak and dark jak felt kind of useless with the weapons being so damn good, and the light jak powers mostly for limited platforming spots (I don't even think you ever have to use the shield iirc).It's still fun and just fighting against enemies in haven city is great, but it feels more half baked than 1 and 2 in a way.Also they should've made the metal head dinosaurs in the desert something that could randomly occur after the mission outside of a few trials, it's by far the funnest thing you do in the desert
>>540385248same, her old va was much better
>>540382831>it's because they're tediousYou've got 2 and 3 mixed up there.
>>540378523Depends how much you like collectathons.I won't lie, I always thought Precursor Legacy was the most boring and repetitive of the original trilogy gameplay-wise, but it's got nice locales and a lot of soul.
