im a HUGE fan of jak and daxter. ive played every game and loved them all except the lost frontier ( ILL REVIEW THAT MESS SOMEDAY...)but this game is the best of all. why? two reasons: you can play it anywhere. reason 2: YOU GET TO PLAY AS ONE OF THE GREATEST GAME CHARACTERS EVER (next to glados from portal and dr.neo cotex)it all stratred on my 13 birthday and we went to radiosack to see the new games on display. since the infamous psp GO was coming out, there was an strandard psp on sale for 100$. i decided to but and it came with the game daxter. i was thinking "a game about daxter? that sounds terible!" the reason i said that is becuase every gamje i played that had you play as a sidekick sucked (Im looking at you secret agent clant ps2!) but i have to say WOW. this is amazing. the story is not a sequal to jak 3. its a pequeal to jak 2. so it after TPL but BEFORE jak 2. so that would mean this is about how daxter saved jak. well this really the only problem i have about the game. see it almost 2 years later and daxter FORGOT TO SAVE JAK. really? well since he forgets he decide to become an exterminator. yeah.. but dont worry the plot get more thick. gameplay is kind of like the same of jak 2 and 3. you run around in the hub world doing diffrent misson most missons in clude mini-games,getting metal head jewls (usally 50.) or destroying a sepific enemy or hives. daxters voice actor returns but other than that i think the voice actors are new comers (jak appears once, but dosent talk.) also,kor,errol,vegar and samos return as cameos. the best part of the game are the mini games. there hilairous! they parody6 the matrix,braveheart,indiana jones and the lord of the rings! overall, this game is a MUST BUY and will satisfy both fans of j&d and psp gamers alike!

Until now, Daxter was merely the ocelot sidekick of the gun-toting Jax. With the Daxter PSP game, the little otter-like creature finally gets a platformer of his very own. This is really quite fun!
Don't judge this game by its opening levels. Like most platformers, you have to begin slow, learning the basics of movement, jumping, attacking and looking around. Daxter is out slaying bugs, so he begins with the most basic of weapons - the bug swatter. He's searching for orbs, killing enemies, picking up health, and generally having a grand old time.
As the game progresses, you get a wide variety of levels to explore and ways to move around. You get to drive cars, ride on zip lines, and much more. You get new weapons to take on new, more difficult enemies. There are even cool dream sequences that let you take on movie character personalities, sort of like Gex.
Most of the missions are go-at-your-own-pace, where you can explore and track down all the hidden secrets. There are a few timed missions which might get frustrating, but as with all games, if you are patient and take your time to learn the map you can eventually get through them.
I do wish they had made this for the big screen as well as the small. As beautiful as the PSP graphics are, with great detail and level distinctiveness, there were times that for example brown boxes blended in with the brown background and things became very hard to see. You shouldn't die repeatedly because the screen is murky.
The game is relatively easy to get the hang of - but also encourages you to replay to track down all of the hidden items in the levels and to get the top score.
It's also nice that the game is all about killing bugs - a task that most people find to be OK for children to do :) You're not slaying humans and there isn't mature language. It's nice to have a game that is really fun to play and that is appropriate for all ages of players as well.
Highly recommended - and as I said my only hope is that they'll ma
