Excerpt: Jak & Daxter, het populaire platformduo, maakt zijn comeback na een lange afwezigheid. Naughty Dog liet de helden na de “kart-racer” Jak-X aan de zijlaan staan om met Nathan Drake de overstap naar de nieuwe generatie consoles te maken. Ready at Dawn, die dan weer geprezen werd voor Daxter en God of War: Chains of Olympus, had het dan weer te druk met hun nieuwe game engine en een nog steeds onaangekondigde titel.
Excerpt: There’s something loveable about Lego games. I wasn’t even a Lego fan as a kid, but seeing characters and moments from films play out as if performed by a group of seven-year-olds is something special. Although many might claim that this is simply Lego Star Wars in new skin, everybody will find something enjoyable about it.
Review: Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier (Sony PSP)
15 April 2010
Summary: Something of a let-down, Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier isn’t a terrible addition to the Jak and Daxter series, but it is lacking some spark the other games had. The game controls decently but be prepared to fight the camera in some key areas. The story is a bit of a cliché and it’s missing several key components that would make the story-telling far less jarring.
Conclusion: Disciples III is powered by an engine that no one in their right mind would call state of the art. That doesn’t mean she isn’t a head-turner though. The masterfully crafted artwork does a remarkable job of making you forget about the quality of the graphics and the visuals are absolutely stunning. I found the dark, gothic style with mainly red to accentuate very appealing indeed. The music on the other hand, is a little limited for such a long game.
Cool sci-fi weapons & steampunk levels, but just OK overall.

Summary: Parents need to know that playing Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier can be a frustrating experience because it doesn't feel truly finished. Aiming weapons is often annoying. The lack of depth perception leads you to die a lot. While the violence isn't a major issue as enemies die with a flash of light (and with no blood), the game design is. Within this confusing story are some mild cussing and sexual references of the double-entendre type.
Excerpt: Just last week, I complained Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time wasn't getting much publicity - at least when compared to other games. Cue at least ten commercials between then and now. I expect the same jump for Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier , a game that managed to sneak in under my radar and of most people I've talked to.
Excerpt: There hasn't been a Jak and Daxter game for ages. After the duo made such an impressive debut on the PS2 back in 2001, the series dropped the "and Daxter" part of the title, went darker and placed a larger emphasis on using guns. Developer High Impact Games, the team responsible for the PSP Ratchet and Clank games, has taken over the reins from Naughty Dog, picked up after the events of Jak 3, and put Daxter back in the title.
