A few months ago I had rented the collection on the PS3 and I didn't like it that much. It felt too out of place. But when I got my PS2 I decided to try it out again and I am enjoying it so far. It just feels so at home on the PS2. The graphics are decent for the time and the gameplay is pretty good for the most part. The story is strange, but oddly satisfying. Overall this game is a lot of fun. There are some issues, but so do all games.

jak and daxter doesn't suck. i've ben waiting 3 years to rent this game cuz i have played the second and 3rd one. this one i find alot better cuz it gives a good challenge. the game pretty much is collect precursor orbs to progress. i do like the eco of yellow green and blue, and diappointed they took those out in the other games. i do like the humor and funny moments when daxter does his dance and muscle shows like a cartoon character. this game is so worth a rent.

I wasn't really expecting a heck of a lot from "Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy", mostly because the only 3-D platformers actually worth playing tend to have the word "Mario" in the title. (Yeah, I said it.) This game was something of a pleasant surprise, however, as I ended up enjoying it, and it held my interest to the end. The levels are diverse and nicely interwoven, and there's lots of things to do and items to collect. One big drawback, however, is that Jak can't jump worth a three dollar bill, and it's irritating how often his double-jump fails to activate, sending him plummeting to the bottom of a deadly chasm. Still, everything else worked well enough, and I'd definitely recommend this game to any fan of the platforming genre.
