A True Gem of The Playstation 2 Era 0

Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy  was applauded by critics and gamers alike for its lovable characters, vibrant art design, solid game play and huge  world.  The developers at Naughty Dog had created an instant classic that seemed to combine, and almost perfect, the best parts of every great platformer.While Naughty Dog could have pumped out an identical sequel and probably done quite well, they decided to turn Jak's world completely upside down. Jak II breaks the mold of its predecessor by ...
