The Jak & Daxter Collection Vita Review-TGH

TGH Writes: "Jak and Daxter began their legendary adventures on the PlayStation 2 at the hands of video game geniuses, Naughty Dog who brought Crash Bandicoot, Uncharted series, and the fantastic The Last of Us to the world of games. The Jak and Daxter series was Naughty Dog’s first new IP after their cheeky bandicoot and offered an open world to explore while still providing the same action/platforming gameplay that Crash Banicoot enjoyed. The Jak and Daxter Collection includes all three of the J&D games, meaning you’re getting Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, Jak II and Jak 3 – but no Jak X. Essentially it’s a great introduction to the series in glorious high definition." (PS Vita, The Jak and Daxter Trilogy) 5/5

They just ignore the framerate issues? They probably played the PS3 version and just assumed the Vita version was identical...
I would give the PS3 version a 9.5/10 and the Vita version a 4/10. It was a horrible port.

I agree. The Vita version is just awful. Jak and Daxter is my favorite new IP from last gen. I just found the Vita version nearly unplayable. It's best on the PS3. I'd even play the PS2 version before I played the Vita version. In my opinion the PS2 version looks better and has a better framerate.

Yeah, I love my Vita and was REALLY excited for this, but they're obviously ignoring its issues. (Or didn't bother even playing it on the Vita.) I've heard numerous sources saying that it has bad issues. Which is a real shame. Would have loved Jak & Daxter on the go...

I agree with you but a 4/10 is over the top imo, I'd give it a 6-7.5 depending on how you feel about frame rates:P

It still packs in all three games, and it is definately playable.

Sony is getting very lazy with it's ports on the vita...Ratchet first now this....

Epic Mickey is no different but at least it looks really good!

I beat Jak 1 on the Vita. Yes, it had a lower FR than what's ideal but was still perfectly playable. Jak 2 is much smoother (so far) and the graphics are definitely a step up. I've only had one FR hitch so far and that's when I crashed a car (and subsequently crashed the game). Have played Jak 3 yet but heard of FR issues, but if its anything like the first I'm not too worried.

Keep in mind I have not played other versions either in PS2 or 3. This is my first experience with this trilogy.

My score 9/10 for vita version.

Jak and Daxters a real treat. it stole my childhood and it was a blast revisiting it on PS3. its still shocking to me that the series had no loading times

Everyone gives it a 5/10 and they give it a 5/5. Yeah, they're not fanboys or anything

Have any of you naysayers played it? I have little to no frame rate issues, it's at a constant 25fps which my eyes adjust to overtime.

The original games are great but I'm going to call bullsh!t on this review. The game is a broken port and we shouldn't encourage such sloppy work. Sony should really have some stringent quality control over their own releases, this game, Ratchet and Clank, and Epic Mickey 2 are prime examples why this needs to be done. These games make Sony look bad and make the Vita look bad.

I very much enjoy it and I haven't come across any framerate issues at all on my Vita. Is everyone playing it on download or via cart?
