Banished, left for dead, but this hero refused to be forgotten. Jak and his faithful companion Daxter are exiled to the unforgiving Wasteland, where survival of the fittest is the law of the land. But deadly lands and dangerous creatures are only the beginning. Soon the worst nightmare imaginable finds Jak's world, threatening to annihilate all life with external darkness - a darkness Jak knows only too well. Jak's exciting Trilogy comes to a close, leading at last to revelations about the mythical warrior Mar, secrets to Jak's enigmatic past, and ultimately to the shocking revelation of who the Precursors really are. Written by Sujit R. Varma

User Reviews

I find this one the weakest of the series...just feels incomplete to me.
16 June 2008 | by Aaron1375See all my reviews

This one just feels rushed to me, or it feels like it should have been the second disk to part two and that they should have been one game. The world is bigger than ever, there is more to do, you now have light eco powers to go along with your dark ones, still this game just does not feel complete. The story starts out good as Jak has been banished to the desert and soon becomes in contact with a strange village of people that feels kind of like it is a Mad Max movie. Jak must do a variety of things pretty much like part two and then the story of Jak gets rapped up quite nicely with a rather cute ending. The platforming is still rather good as is other parts you are used to. I think the problems come in the form of dune buggy racing in the desert. Just seems the makers of this game fell in love with this a bit to much as it is focused on way to much even to the point of being in the final battle as well. I thought it was okay, but I am not into racing games all that much and this is what this game turns into a bit to often. Then there is the fact it seems shorter than part two. Considering how expansive the world is you would think there would be more missions than in part two, but it just does not feel like the case. It takes awhile to get back to Haven City and I was amazed that it was virtually the same size and I figured the game was just taking off, but this is nearly the end. However, all complaining aside this is still a good game that is fun and funny. Just seems it needed another year of development.
