You'll need all those abilities to get through this unique platformer!

- Connect to PS2 through USB; unlock drivers, vehicles, and graphics for Jak X Combat Racing or connect to PS2 to open up secret features in Daxter
- Well worth the money! Great graphics and gameplay.
As a parent I'm extremely pleased with this game. It was well worth the money. This was the first game we purchased after buying our psp. My kids had really liked the Jak and Daxter series of games. Some are better than others. This is definitely one of the best in my opinion, if not the best. I don't usually play games much anymore, but have played the first few levels and found it to be a really fun game. My 12 year old thinks it's awesome. I'm just hoping there are a few more games out there that are as good as this one. ...more info
To cut to the chase;
1. The game is set in Haven city while you are trying to rescue Jak from prison.
2. Although the story follows a classic J&D approach with set missions to complete, there is one thing to be noticed; the actual ground that is available to be accessed is deceptive. There are red barriers stopping you and you can not get out the city, explore the entire haven, or 'jak' any rides.
3. It is a great game, with amazing psp graphics, and story line that leaps forward at the end. My one gripe is that it has no guns, but it does have a gas cannister with 3 add ons.
To sum up, it is a really good game with dream sequences that could really extend game play. Just don't expext anything identical to J&K 1 and 2....more info
- Great Game
I am a huge fan of the Jak and Daxter series. I just recently got a PSP for my birthday thanks to my wonderful girlfriend. And I have to say, that Daxter was probably the best game I have played yet. It is long, and fun and entertaining. I strongly recommend this game. Have fun and enjoy......more info
- Furry Legacy
If you have played previous Jak and Daxter games you'll love this one! This game takes place during Jak's kidnapping in the second Jak and Daxter game.
Pro's: -Fun camera angles make the game more exciting on certain levels ( ex. fuel tank level)
-Plays like the previous Jak games but with a flyswatter and cans as weapons.
-The voice-acting stays to its original characters with humor.
-Daxter's minigames are spin-off of block-buster movies.
-New areas never seen before
-Lighting bugs on fire is fun
-Battle 3 "real" bug monsters, like the ones Jak fights.
-The game says drive "vehicles" but you really only drive one(a scooter) throughout town, the other 3 are for mission areas only.
-The area expansion is shrunk. Unlike the previous games, your not going to be able to explore much around town. Some areas aren't in the game.
-Can't steal vehicles.
-The camera angle can be a nuisance at times, especially if your trying to see a boss flying around during a fight.
-Seems shorter than the previous games.
-Daxter can't swim
-Swatting bugs may steer older audience away
Overall this is a good, fun portable game for the psp and to any fan of the series....more info
I love it! The game programmers did a very good job on this one. Actually, there are very few weapons, and the only thing you can purchase is minigames and some videos. However, that didn't matter. The creativity, (like killing bugs the size of buildings and hovering using a bug spray), the span of the areas you could play in, and the intensity of the game were incredible. However, one thing makes me really mad. Once you beat it you'd think you'd either get a second playthrough with all your stuff, or at least go back to the last save point. But no, you end up in front of Osmo's shop, which has been destroyed, and are stuck in an area smaller than a boss arena. I am still trying to find a way out, but I cannot find one. How lame is that?
I still recomend this game, since it takes a while to get to that point and is very fun, but once you get there, you may as well either start a new acount and play again, put it in some corner of your house and play it again when you find it two years later, or chuck it in the trash.
Still, you should definetely get this game, unless you're one of those people who can beat Fable or Zelda in a day, and cannot find a game hard enough that you don't die even once....more info
This game is pretty fun in my opinion. I think it could have been better....more info
- Daxter, fun or boring
Daxter is definatly a fun game. I got it a while back and still can't keep my hands off of it. This game has a great story of Daxter trying to save Jak from the Baron. The gameplay is good as well. It is challenging and there are some fun mini games. (Dream Games) The graphics are amazing and the voices are good. This game might not be for kids under 8 because there is some comic mischief. Overall it is a fun game so get it and have fun! ...more info
- This is a great PSP game 5 out of 5 stars
This is a great PSP game for all ages. It is a necessity if you've played the other Jak games.It tells about how Daxter took up a job as a bug exterminator and ultimately freed Jak from the Baron.There is a ton of levels with 3 challenging bosses. The second boss took me a while to beat but you'll understand it after a while. You can use Daxes electric fly swatter to squash bugs or catch them on fire with his flamethrower. And you can play other players with its wi-fi connection.Even if you haven't played the other games you'll love this one. It is my personal Favorite. I would say this is the best PSP game yet and is a must have for Jak fans and non Jak players alike....more info
- Very Good Game...
...but i actually enjoyed the new Ratchet & Clank PSP game more then i did Daxter.
It was a tie for the 2 games. I picked up Daxter & the new PSP Ratchet both on the same day, same purchase. I am not gonna say why the other is better or anything like that. But Daxter is a great game with plenty of things to do. A game of this epic scope its kinda hard 2 really enjoy it as much as you would have enjoy it if it was on your big screen TV. Its alittle hard 4 me 2 accept it on a small PSP screen. But overall i am pleased with my purchase. Conisdering the game was not designed by the original creators. They did a great job of creating an excellent adventure game title from a legendary series. Unlike the crew that developed Spyro & Crash after the owners jumped ship. Those 2 mascots are in desperate need of a GOOD make over....more info
- Favorite PSP game so far!!
I bought this for my PSP since I really liked the Jak&Daxter games for the PS2. This game did not fail to pull me in and become a true favorite for me.
Daxter has more personality than quiet Jak, and somehow I don't miss Jak at all in this game. Like Jak games, Daxter gets to ride cool machines, use cool weapons and explore interesting locale, as well as kill off some pretty gnarly creatures/bugs and figure out some tricky moves.
I have completed this game by killing the final boss and finding all my 1001 orbs, but I am still not at 100% done!!
In order to get 100%, You have to reach gold levels in the dream sequences. Well, I am still working on that one...and I seem to have missed 3 bugs along the way somehow! There is so much to figure out and explore and collect that it stays true to the style of the Jak & Daxter games that I came to love for the PS2.
Another cool aspect of this game, are the dream sequences (as before mentioned). You work on these when you get a chance to get back to Daxters bed. As you make your way through the game and collect orbs, you gain new dream sequences that are fun to watch and play. Daxter goes to sleep and becomes a different character...(ie: Matrix, Braveheart, Indiana Jones, and Lord of the Rings characters). As you beat dream levels, you gain life bars, new moves and gain new secrets...But beware...it takes some pretty fast fingers to win these up to the gold levels, as I have mentioned.
Another aspect of the game is: "Bug Combat". Along the way IN THE GAME again, you are also collecting "bugs, tokens and bug powers" while you play. Than you try your hand at "Bug Combat". It is kinda fun (but not great!) it is basically a game of "Rock, Paper, Scissors" as you choose weapons and shields for your bug, to fight the psp bug. One bug tops the other with their choices of shield/spit/claw. In the game you can also find or win funny items like pants, masks, and a hat for daxter. These are fun and interesting, but not an important part of winning the game.
Finally, if needed, this game has a guide at the Daxter webpage of the Playstation U.S. website, if you get stuck. It may come in handy as I found I was stuck a couple times in various locations and had no idea how to get out...if you don't get out...you cannot move on. It also helps you locate those last and final orbs, masks, and bug combat items that you couldn't find.
There is not really a ton of great games for the PSP out there as I am sadly finding...but this one is my top favorite so far and worth the purchase. ENJOY!" It takes time to complete, and is fun all along to watch and play. ...more info
- Fun especially on a small scale.
With the advancement of handheld game systems one thing is for sure. Some games on a small handheld system are just too dificult to play. However Daxter is the perfect example on how to make a great game just as enjoyable in small scale as large. Immediately you will notice the superb 'Animation like' graphics and great intermissions. If you liked the previous versions of this game series then you will love Daxter. I can't get my girlfriend to give it back!! :)...more info
- Great Game!
The bottom line is this game is one of the best ive played in awhile for the PSP. The game has outstanding graphics and incredible sound. It has a good plot and good single player.Here are some pros and cons...
Pros- great graphics, great sound, great single player.
Cons. Rediculousley short, and the multiplayer dissapointed me alot.
Yeah the multiplayer isnt too great in my opinoin. Its kind of like a rock paper sissor match with bugs you collect throughout the single player adventure. Each bug has different strenghts and weaknesses. And you can find potions and tokens throughout the game that increases your bugs stats for that match. I kind of wanted something a bit more exciting though. But its not too big of a deal because the single player story make up for the multiplayer, its amazing. Overall.... great graphics, gameplay, sound.... if you see it at the store for a price you like pick it up, i think you will like it....more info
