Why do people say Jak sucks?

#1HemerukioPosted 12/9/2012 2:26:17 AM
I've been having a great time using him so far. In fact, I find him easier to use and grasp than anyone else; his level 1 feels fairly easy to pull off as well, and usually results in double kills for me, I don't know why people are complaining about his level 2 so much, and his level 3 is super awesome. Am I the only one who feels he's under-appreciated?

then you must be playing against people who suck at this game pretty bad.

Jak has horrible combos just like Radec. The difference is Radec makes up for it with huge ranged attacks and easy to kill supers. Jak is one of the worst characters in the game right now IMO. I can't believe they didn't give him followup combo ability after forward square, up square. He needs an ISP combo by extending comboable moves after launching.

Jak has some of the worst supers in the game. The only thing he's good at is running away, which is why he excels in stock matches.

Jak is a good character IMO and my best. All of my friends who had the game told me Jak was a character slot wasted and I shouldn't bother with him but they couldn't be more wrong! It takes a while to get a feel for him and actually know when to use guns and supers. LightEcoSage if you read this, we should team up as 2 Jaks and take the world by eco storm.

I main Jak and I am successful with him, he's also my favourite character out of the roster. But it's hardly an easy win compared to a Radec or Sweet Tooth win. Jak's AP gain on a lot of his moves bar his blaster, wave concussor and square attacks is lacking. His supers are relatively expensive and pretty hard to reliably hit. While he is a good character he is lacking in comparison to the rest of the roster.

Still can't think of a good signature.

Poor AP gain on all his moves except his squares, down circle, forward triangle, no reliable setups into supers, weird hitboxes on his square follow-up moves like his jetboard punch, bad supers.

If you want AP with him, you have to spam the same few moves over and over again, it gets really predictable. He's good at avoiding supers, but that's it.
