Replaying Jak II - #1
I too am in the process of playing Jak II at the moment. In my case however it is because I never had a PS2 until last fall (yes, I know I'm behind) and am trying to catch up on all of the main series I missed. Playing through it for the first time several things have struck me so far.
-How drastically this games veers away from the kid friendly nature of the first game.
-How much Grand Theft Auto III's open world was influencing games in the early 2000s.
-How much mileage you can get out of a cute wise cracking side kick.
-Good Lord in Heaven is this game hard. I've spent probably half of my playtime simply redoing missions over and over until I finally accomplish them.
While I'm not going to say that this is one of the best games ever made it holds up decently well. The graphics are done in a cartooney enough manner that their age isn't horribly apparent and the gameplay is solid.
I picked up the first Jak a few months ago and I loved playing that game so much. Suffice to say, I went and picked up Jak II, Jak 3, and Jak X Combat Racing, but have yet to finish II. I should probably get on that. It's just a weird transition from Jak to Jak II.
"Good Lord in Heaven is this game hard. I've spent probably half of my playtime simply redoing missions over and over until I finally accomplish them."Damnit, yes. What I have played of it so far, I get the sense that the missions are not forgiving.
