If you haven't played the Jak and Daxter series, you really should, i remember all the levels and stories, as if it were yesterday. If you into stories and great game play this is a must have the story has surprising plot twists and great endings. I remember playing Jak 2 after the first one and saying it felt disconnected from the first one, even though it had a great story and game play. But near the end of the second game you start to realize that all the games are connected.
Plus if your a collect and find stuff in games like infamous and skyrim, you have plenty to search for, and list after list of cool things to unlock, such as level select, gun mods, vehicles and tons more. And most of all that crazy stuff is even after your done with the main story so you'll have lots to do, and still not feel like its boring.
As for the game play all games feel like they're adding something new to the experience. like the first one was all about exploration and finding those
"orb thingies", the second was all about weapons and gun courses and since we're on that i spent countless hours on those dang gun courses im not sure why they're so awesome buy they just are. As for the third game i loved the vehicle missions, it was nice to put the gun down for a second and just drive.... even though there's a turret on the car, lol.
So if your a fan of naughty dog's "Uncharted series" you will be a fan of the Jak and Daxter.
By the way i think its messed up that they just put jak 2 and jak 3 instead of Jak and Daxter 2, always got to be mean to Daxter. But seriously if you loved the PS2 ages or a fan of shooters or platformers this is a must have, or a must replay, c:

If you're a huge Jak and Daxter fan like me, or a new comer to the series, You must get this game! I remember playing these back on the PS2, and they are still amazing and better yet they're are tropheys to add some extra fun, Now lets hope Naughty Dog makes a Jak 4 now.

The Jak & Dexter Collection is a great addition to the PS3. The series brings back memories from the PS2 version. Graphics have been polished with the nice trophy feature. If you haven't played the series, you'll see a huge transition from the 1st to the 2nd game. The first being a calmer, peaceful game of collecting orbs and power cells while fighting a few bosses and the 2nd becomes more of a sandbox GTA style game with a huge change in story and character. These games are worth your while as you enjoy the plot twists and unravel all the great mysteries in the world of Jak & Daxter. Now let's see a Jak 4!
