Should I skip Jak 2 for now and play Jak 3?

Don't get why Jak 2 has so much hate but Jak 3 doesn't. Jak 3 is just as obnoxious at times. In fact, the entire first half of Jak 3 is downright terrible. Forcing you to do driving mission after driving mission after driving mission in those absolutely horrendous cars with the worst handling ever seen in a video game... I forgot how bad it was, but after the PS3 HD collection, I never want to play the first half of Jak 3 again.

Which reminds me, why are you even playing this on Vita in the first place? The Vita versions of all games are crap. Should have got the collection for PS3 instead.

The fake difficulty in both games is ridiculous. I quit Jak 2 during the vat level and Jak 3 during the escort-shooting-hovercraft level because the game was literally cheating.

yeah dont give up yet, i plat'ed all three of them and yes, Jak 2 was hard but rewarding. And Jak3 is AWESOME but like the guy said, the steering is terrible with the fast vehicles

A lot of Vita fanboys are still in heavy denial about this, claiming the framerates are fine.

Worst part is the best J&D was the one NOT made by naughty dog. New frontier or whatever it was called.

Really? I think even Vita fanboys can admit that this is a really crappy port.

You'd be surprised.

Jak II is a hard game but it was still the best of the series. But I can understand how new comers might find it too aggravating to complete - modern games are far easier, what with regenerating health, constant hand-holding, very forgiving checkpoints and so on.

I would suggest sticking with it though. It's worth it in the end.

jak 2 is the best in the series the only complaint i ever see is difficulty, IMO grow some balls and you wont have to worry about it
