Checkpoint system and overall game mechanics. First game was a pure platformer. Second game magically turns into a GTA clone to cash in on the hype and has horrible mechanics to top it off. Plus having to drive across the city was no fun when the driving was so garbage.

Definitely the black sheep of the series, glad Jak 3 redeemed the series.

Never played it.

But it can't be harder than Dark Souls right? Haha.

It's like they copied half of Ratchet & Clank. I think a better question is why people like it so much.

If you found the shooting hard then jump+spin kick+shoot=death for all the bad guys.

I picked up jak collection a few months ago, and i forgot how annoying jak 2 was, it was one of the most rage inducing game i've played in a long ass time, the lack of checkpoints is what drove me crazy.

For me it was not only the lack of checkpoints, but also the clunky controls. The vehicle sections were atrocious.

It's not so much hard, as it is frustrating.
