Designed by freshman developer Ready at Dawn, Daxter turns out to be one of the killer apps on the PSP system and a must own title for anyone remotely interested in the action/platformer genre.
Playing as everyone's favorite Ottsel, Daxter (half otter, half weasel) is the star of this game taking the player on a romp through brilliantly designed levels on missions to exterminate all the metalbugs in Haven City in his larger quest to foil the evil plot of the story's antagonist.
Heavy on action and platform elements, the game shines through silky animation, a well executed camera system, polished gameplay mechanics, and variety in the levels. Shortcomings of the title include some less exciting vehicle sequences and a story that gets a little sparse around the middle of the game.
Still, the title oozes high production value and any faults in the game are compensated for twice over with all the other excellent features.
Daxter is a true action/platformer worthy of its Naughty Dog heritage and one that doesn’t make any compromises in its arrival on the PSP platform.
Okay I must tell you right now, this is a must have for any PSP owner.
It has the best graphics I have ever seen for a handheld. It looks as good as PS2 launch titles. The gameplay is very solid and is just what platform lovers are looking for. The bug spray is a good addition to the gameplay. The only thing I am wondering is what ever happened to his bug sprayer during Jak 2. The story is very good with lovable characters that actually has some laugh out load moments. The rhythm game parts are back just like the Jak games and better than ever. Each one spoofs a movie and they are really funny as well as being fun to play. The controls are tight even though you have to use the control "nub". The only problem with this game is that it is not too long even if you get all the precursor orbs.
Now this is no killer app, but it is amazing and a must buy for any PSP owner. If you are wondering whether or not to get a PSP this is not a game that will make it worth it, but if you do you will definitely have a good time.
Everone, rent this game at least if not buy it. Unless you hate Jak and Daxter or you hate platformers, but who hates those?
If you have a playstation and like the jak and daxter series than get a PSP.But any way on this platformer for the PSP you get to see why it took daxter soooooo long in Jak2 to save Jak.If you have a PSP USB link cable than u can unlock some new things in Jak X.like 4 characters and a new car.I have gotten near the end of the game but never beat it.But im sure we all know what will happen.You can also unlock masks like the Jak mask,The Ratchet mask,and the human Daxter mask.That is why i give this game for the PSP a 10 out of 10.
