Jak and Daxter Collection Vita Review-IGN

The Jak and Daxter series stands as a testament to the awesome games of the PlayStation 2 generation, and also serves as the turning point when we really started to recognize Naughty Dog as a top-tier developer.

I rarely agree with ign on vota reviews....alot of sins were committed.
but sadly this rating is right. im playing it right now and I had to get used to the choppyness and I dont see any reason to call it hd.
its still jak and dax its just a lazy port for sure. you get three games and trophies flow in like hot wings on Sundays and when you get used to the choppyness you will enjoy it.

tanookisuit1820d ago

Is the choppiness persistent throughout, or just in "heavy-use" areas?

I ask b/c I feel like picking up a copy soon.

Soldierone1820d ago

Even if it is only heavy use areas, that will suck for 2 and 3. Especially with all the races through the city.

Kingthrash3601820d ago

honesty I played 1 first and that was choppy from the start. buy now im on two and its not as bad. in fact I barley seen any bad moments of rate loss....part one though suffered most. like I said though when you get used to it its still a great game.

Choppiness is very bad on the first game but that isn't even the only problem when you also have terrible, imprecise controls to boot.

Do yourself and your wallet a favor, stick to the PS3 version. Wait for a potential PS+ release or a huge discount.

When the PS3's higher quality version is available and probably cheaper, why bother? This version was not even polished enough to call it a suitable port, let alone HD.

This release wasn't fair to Sony fans or the Vita system.

Kingthrash3601820d ago

also true. but jak and dax on the go....still good.

SonyPS41820d ago

Jak on the go (or any game for that matter) is only good when it works well. This portable remaster, sadly, isn't a good example of a working game.

SpiralTear1820d ago

Man, three of the best PS2 games of all time together on a handheld should've been a foolproof success. Alas...

Y_51501820d ago

I'll buy this real cheap on day. But till then I have the PS3 version. :)

Kevlar0091820d ago

Why did the Vita get such a cruddy port of one of the most reverred Sony franchises? The quality control was just dismal

SlapHappyJesus1820d ago (Edited 1820d ago )

Low effort cash grab?

I'll be honest. While I don't really have anything against the company, and they have found their way into my graces these last couple of years, I've hated the way, and this is how I see it, that they sort of bleed their fans.
They remove backwards compatibility and then serve up "HD" re-releases of pretty much any quality game they had on offer last gen.

This here. This is what I would consider them triple-dipping, considering it seems like a lot of people here have, in fact, purchased the re-releases on the Playstation. Those are the fans, and they will buy whatever Sony offers them.
They promise a quality port to a system that, at the moment, only true Sony fans own (for the most part), and then don't even deliver a quality product.

I don't like that.

tubers1820d ago

I seriously hope that the upcoming GoW VITA ports are not close to these piss poor quality ports specially that Ratchet and Clunk VITA.

Yodagamer1820d ago (Edited 1820d ago )

I really don't know how it could look worst than the ps2 versions. What is with sony when it comes to vita, it produces great games at times for it then we get absolute oversights like this and resistance. Here's hoping that the gow collection is better on vita.
