[first lines]
Samos the Sage: For every age there is a time of trial. The rocks faced such a fire before they were the strength beneath our feet. The plants braved vast winds before their roots could give us life. As a sage of considerable years, I have known only one such great ordeal. Yet the hero it created was a champion of all time.

Not as good as the first one thanks mainly to the large shift in game play.
16 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

Yes, in this one you go from your standard platform type game to a game where Jak does not only kill enemies with spin attacks, but also with guns. He also steals hover vehicles and takes them for a spin. Why the sudden shift? Easy, Grand Theft Auto III came out and a lot of games took this sort of free roaming shift. Not that it is bad here, I just prefer the way the first one moved better. This one does pick up where the first one left off. Jak, Daxter, Keira, and Samos the sage have put together some device and it transports them to a future world to a city called Haven City. This place is bad news, Jak is found and taken prisoner and is kept prisoner when Daxter finally comes to the rescue. You then must do various missions throughout the very large city ranging from fetch quests, chases, and re con missions to try to take power back from the one who now rules Haven City. Jak now shoots a gun with different forms of ammo and you even get a skateboard that you can use in a type of skate course or throughout your travels in this huge city. This one though has some missions that are cuss and hair pulling inducing. Some of the chase scenes within the city is maddening thanks to a very filled street. I mean there are so many hover crafts and they do not move out of your way. You also never get any more health during these missions which adds to the frustration. However, the story here is good as is the game is a shame they felt they had to take the game into a new direction, but they do a relatively good job getting it there.
