When I first saw a small portion of this games game play I had my doubts. And on top of that, I learned that a different company made this instead of Naughty Dog(High Impact Games made this 1). And then I learned about the arrival of Dark Daxter...And after all that, I really was concerned about a new fresh Jak and Daxter still with that classic feeling put into the game. When I say that I mean, I was concerned that the fresh, but classic feeling was not going to be there. Regardless I tried it feeling that I should at least give it a shot just because the Jak and Daxter series was an amazing experience for me growing up. Im 14 right now.

Anyway, at first I wasn't to sure about it. Though once I got through the beginning of the game and began immersing myself into the solid story I thought otherwise. New and interesting characters are introduced and you really get a feeling for them. Now, let me say now that I have not yet beat the game. I believe that im through the beginning though and now approaching the climax. The whole plane thing instead of dune buggies or hover cars is turning out not to be that bad.

So in short Jak and Daxter: The final Frontier is much better than it may appear and I want to praise High Impact games for pulling it off decently here. There is still that same grabbing classic game play style and an emotional set of characters that take you in just like any of the other Jak and Daxter games.

So to conclude my review here, I STRONGLY suggest that fans of the Jak and Daxter series should really try this and take a break from the cod games and come back to "Good old Jak and Daxter"!!

First of all i was extremely happy that jak and daxter came back after like 3 years! This game is fun because of the newly added dogfights and new egos. The story was funny and entertaining. The camera angles arent a major problem and they really didnt cause me much trouble but if your playing this on psp then you might have problems but on ps2 i didnt see much camera angle problems and i dont know why everyone keeps complaining about it.

first off let me say that jak 3 was my favorite game of all time. i hoped they would make another game all the time. when i saw this i was soooo happy. when i got this game and played i was extremely disappointed. it just didn't have the bang that jak 3 had. let me also say i was disappointed to see it only on the psp and ps2. i knew if it was going to be a completely awesome game it would be on the ps3 and i hoped it would be on the ps3 even though i don't have one yet. there were less guns in this game the story was weaker the controlles were weird and you couldn't look around good at all. plus what is it with all this colored eco. they should have just stuck to light and dark jak. plus there are less eco powers.

only good thing i can come up with is the upgrades are cool and even though the game completely failed my expectations it was still almost worth playing.
