How's the Jak and daxter HD Collection?

#11Rebellian(Topic Creator)Posted 2/11/2013 2:59:12 AM
It's me again and I got another somewhat on topic question; How Is the Ratchet and Clank HD Collection? I've been kind of Interested In getting Into the R&C games for awhile and I figured the HD Collection would be the best way to start. I literally dont know jack about the R&C games aside from hearing they're action/platformers like Jak & Daxter and that they got some pretty nutty weaponry.

Also I hate to turn this Into one of "those" threads, but If I could only get one collection for the time being, should I get Jak & Daxter or Ratchet & Clank?

On one hand R&C Is completely new to me and I have no Idea what to expect from It. On the other hand I hadnt played a J&D game In so long (I think since 06 or 07) that playing through the J&D collection would still feel fresh and new to me, even more so with It being In HD.

Ratchet & Clank collection is by far the best looking ps2 ports i've played, sometimes you forget your playing a last gen game, the gameplay is gun heavy (expect the first game, it has less emphasis on the gun play), you can just sit back, and just blow s*** up, its incredibly fun. The story and humor is also great. I think the games are better than Jak & Daxter, so i would recommend it.

J&D series was one of my favorites from the PS2 gen and I absolutely adore Jak 2 and 3. Get them asap.

R&C was also another long time favorite and you can't go wrong there either.

Truthfully, I'm a little biased towards the Jak series because I loved it so much but I have almost equal feelings for Ratchet as well, so just flip a coin and let that be how you decide.

Well I flipped a coin as suggested and It says to get Ratchet and Clank, so I guess that's what I'm getting.

I had been wondering about this too. I only played a bit of the first game but from what i remember i liked it. Do you think i would like Jak 2 and 3 if i liked Jak 1.

I also played Daxter and ended up liking that one too, but not sure if that is anything like the others.

I hadn't played the games until getting the Collection, and I think the Ratchet and Clank games are fantastic. I highly recommend it.

I have the Jak and Daxter Collection as well, but have not yet played it.

Jak 2 and 3 are different from Jak 1. Jak 1 Is one of those "collect-a-thon" games like Super Mario 64 and Banjo Kazooie, while Jak 2 and 3 are open world sandbox games with missions like Grand Theft Auto and their combat Is mostly centered around gun play although they still got platforming as a key gameplay element. I'd say If you played and liked Jak 1 and also like open world games, then you might like Jak 2 and 3.

I cant vouch for Daxter though, I never owned a PSP .

J&D is a different kind of monster compared to its sequels. Where as 2 and 3 are more mission based action adventure games mixed with a great deal of platforming, the original is mainly a pure platformer similar to games like Super Mario 64, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, DK64, etc.

Its a great game but I don't care for it as much as the sequels which I consider 2 of the best games of all time.

Daxter was a lot of fun too, definitely a must play. Its pretty much a hybrid of Jak 1 and the sequels since it involves a ton of platforming but also has weapon based gameplay

Jak 1 is the worst game in the series. It is literally a collecting items game.
