Samos Hagai the Green Sage: I have spent my life searching for the answers that my father and my father's fathers failed to find. Who were the Precursors? Why did they create the vast monoliths that liter our planet? How did they harness Eco, the life energy of the world? What was their purpose? And why did they vanish? I have asked the plants, but they do not remember. The plants have asked the rocks, but the rocks do not recall. Even the rocks do not recall. Every bone in my body tells me that the answers ...

Fun game with lush environments...best one of the series.
16 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

Yes, of the games featuring these characters this one is still my favorite of them all. Granted the story is not as dark, however I as a gamer do not necessarily like my games dark all the time. They made the same mistake in the Prince of Persia saga too, trying to cater to the Grand Theft Auto set of people. This game features two buddies snooping where they should not, the one named Daxter soon falls into a vat of something called dark eco and is transformed into a fuzzier version, granted this does not stop his wisecracking which is the highlight for me for the entire series. Jak is the silent protagonist here and I prefer that a bit more to the talker he becomes. Well Jak and Daxter must navigate the world finding the legendary sages so that they might help not only Daxter, but the world from a dark threat looming in the background. The graphics are great as they really show distance very well. At the beginning you go to an island from the island you can see the mainland, from the mainland you can see the island. The game is filled with areas where you can see in the distance where you must go and where you were. The action is performed via standard platform gaming with your jumping and spin attacks on enemies. The controls are simple and for the most part the game is not the type to make you pull your hair out. The environments are great as you navigate tropical locals, snowy mountain tops, and fire filled mine shafts and you get some top notch boss fights too. It is a shame they did not stick to this formula for future games though. Not that the others are bad, but they just do not match this one in fun.
