Worth a rent only.

When I first popped this game in I would have been amazed at the graphics the PSP was putting out, but I have already played God of War: CoO. Still the game does boast some impressive graphics for the handheld.
That being said, it does have some bad frame rate problems in places it shouldn't. Running around feels sluggish, like I'm walking through tar.
Bad camera angles can get you killed easily, by either an enemy or just falling off a ledge constantly.
Anyway the game is definitely a Rent, but I wouldn't buy it.

The game play is alright, however the camera viewing you character gets out of place, and if you in a critical area. you will not make it.

I was really excited when I found out this game was being made. I liked the idea of finding out about what happened while Jak was imprisoned.
Daxter really is dissapointing in this regard.
The story is bare bones. We see Jak and Daxter enter the city for the first time, we see Jak get captured. Daxter gets a job as an exterminator.
He kills some bugs. He kills some more bugs. He kills a big bug. Thats it...
The gameplay consists of some decent platforming with a Super Mario Sunshine feel, and a couple of repetitive minigames.
if you remember the short sequences in Jak 3 where you play as Daxter, they were short, and very shallow, and this is how i remember the game. I rented it, and soon played it constantly, not because it was engaging at ALL, but because I couldn't wait to send it back and get something else.

This game is basically a quick fling for fans of the series or someone who needs something to play for 15 hours on a bus where there is NOTHING left to do.

A rental at best

5/10
