Excellent

Highly entertaining, but short

This game is certainly one of the best platformers available for the PSP. Tight controls, excellent story, engaging mechanics, and a warped sense of humor all contribute to the fun. Add in superb graphics, and well-designed sound, and you've got a wonderful all-around game.

There's plenty of collectibles in each mission, and the game has a structure of rewards that makes it worth your while to come back to previously completed methods and try to find those last hidden items you missed the first time. Since you continually accquire new equipment which opens up new methods of exploration, its quite possible that you'll need to revist some missions several times.

As always with Jak and Daxter, Daxter's wise-cracking continues rapid-fire throughout the game. In his first solo mission, Daxter enjoys the limelight, hamming it up whenever possible. The sense of humor in these games has been one reason I consistently enjoy the series. The dream sequence mini-games present in Daxter spoof pop-culture references, and provide an entertaining break from bug splatting.

My one gripe with this game which keeps it from being a perfect ten is the length. I found it very short. Even thogh it was a satisfying experience, I think I finished the game with perfect completion in around 8 hours. While I was entertained the whole time, it still felt short.

The length aside, everythin else in this game is pretty much perfect. Ready at Dawn has truly raised the bar for PSP games. Other developers should take note: this is the quality standard consumers will come to expect from PSP titles.

Hands down the best game for the PSP. The game takes place after the first game and before the second game, you got that? Ok. The game play is similar to the original games so if you played them then you'll feel right at home. The game is definitely a must buy. There's plenty of levels to keep you busy and the replay value is good since you can replay the levels to get the stuff you couldn't get before. Theres also a bug combat feature that lets you fight with the bugs you find in the game.

I'm not much of a fan of platformers. Particularly 3D platformers. The cotrols are usually cumbersome, the camera is never in the right spot and the story is about as compelling as trying to have a conversation with a goldfish.

This game still seems to lack an interesting story, but it's still more interesting than talking to fish. Where it really wins is the gameplay. It's fun, to say the least. The controls work. There is enough variety in the play to keep you coming back for more. The graphics truly show off the capabilities of the machine.

Put it in the top of your Q and plan on keeping it!
