Review: Jak and Daxter Collection (Vita)

I have an interesting relationship with the Jak and Daxter series. I went into the first game expecting absolutely nothing, and came away so impressed that I now consider it one of my most beloved platformers of all time.

But was once a whimsical and fairly child-friendly series quickly took a dark turn, as Jak is not only captured at the beginning of the second game, but tortured for two years and turned into a half-mutant dark version of himself. Jak was no longer the cute mute he was in the first innocent adventure -- he was animated, vocal, and angry. This evolution of the formula is just one way Naughty Dog kept the franchise fresh, and relevant.

In other words, you absolutely need to experience this trilogy -- but probably not on the PlayStation Vita.

New releases: Luigi is in charge photo
New releases: Luigi is in charge
by Fraser Brown

With E3 behind us, it's time to get back to playing games that are actually out now. And this week we're being treated to the delightfully unexpected New Super Luigi U. Mario's just a boring old plumber, so it's no surprise that Nintendo are finally realising what we've all known for years: it's better with Luigi.

As well as New Super Luigi U, we're getting the bizarre action physics game, Magrunner; the D&D double pack, Chronicles of Mystara arrives; the first three Jak & Daxter games get squashed into one collection; and quirky meta-RPG Knights of Pen & Paper + 1 drops.

What's floating your boat this week?

The Evil Within, Deadpool, & Legend Of Yoshi's 3D Luigi U

Well, I done goofed when I was making the thumbnail for this episode. The Evil Inside is not an actual video game. I am dumb. Today's formerly-live Destructoid Show covers the announcement of Bethesda and Shinji Mikami's new...

Jak and Daxter Collection might come to PS Vita

The original Jak and Daxter was a charming little platformer if not a bit derivative. The two sequels were... err... something else, for lack of a better phrase. I enjoyed them nonetheless, and I'm disappointed that Naughty D...

Say what you will about rerelease collections, but this one was needed. The Jak and Daxter series contained some of the finest games available on the PS2, and this generation of PS3 gamers may have missed out on Naughty Dog's earliest works, so a series collection was more than welcome. 

The Jak and Daxter Collection takes all three games, remasters them in high-definition running at 60 frames per second, adds Trophy support and 3D support, and puts them all on one $40 disc for the PS3. Even after more than a decade, Jak and Daxter impress -- that's how good these games are.
