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. (Jak and Daxter HD Collection, PS Vita) 6.8/10

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.

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

I ask b/c I feel like picking up a copy soon.
Soldierone  +   551d ago
Even if it is only heavy use areas, that will suck for 2 and 3. Especially with all the races through the city.
Kingthrash360  +   551d 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.

Ive done the city race on vita man it was hard with the choppy framerate !
PopRocks359  +   551d ago
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.
Kingthrash360  +   551d ago
also true. but jak and dax on the go....still good.
SonyPS4  +   551d 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.

Man, three of the best PS2 games of all time together on a handheld should've been a foolproof success. Alas...
Y_5150  +   551d ago
I'll buy this real cheap on day. But till then I have the PS3 version. :)

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

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.

I seriously hope that the upcoming GoW VITA ports are not close to these piss poor quality ports specially that Ratchet and Clunk VITA.
Yodagamer  +   551d 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.

Why bother porting it if they are making this bad -.- . Just waste of time and money . Now we will never get a good port :( . Really disappointed because this was a day one when it was announced T_T

Jak and Daxter used to be one of the most successful platformer of its time.. what happened?

this series deserves better.

Great games, garbage port.

Got the PSV ports for free because I brought the PS3-Digital version around last year(I think).

After all the reviews and such, I don't think I have the heart to download them on the PSV till an update is out to fix that choppiness.

But in the meantime, I'll play the Daxter PSP game :)

How does the daxter look on Vita?
GentlemenRUs  +   550d ago
Quite alright, You might wana fiddle with some of the setting but apart from that... Looks good :)
vigilante_man  +   550d ago
Ratchet & Clank - Size Matters looks great as does Resistance Retribution. Better than on the PSP.

Loved Daxter, though. Had original disc now need to get for PSV download. Great game.
vigilante_man  +   550d ago
Can other PSV owners confirm this? Big mistake for Naughty Dog if this is true, letting one of their flagship products go to pot.

BTW. The PS2 version of Jak II looks awesome on my HD TV.
