Jak has a pretty good guardbreaker, excellent mobility a better lv 1 with much less set up and great for anti-air, and while he doesn't gain a lot of ap his melee moves are pretty good, Nariko can gain large amounts of AP when she can get in but her lv 1 in my opinion as someone who uses her is the worst and a completely unreliable lv 2 which can get you killed
But she doesn't need a level 1 or 2. Going solely for her level 3 is a completely viable strategy for her. She can win that war of attrition, Jak can't because his AP gaining potential is too low.
Jak's guard breaker is near impossible to hit in 1 vs 1. It's way too slow and obvious. And even if you could hit it like I said, he doesn't have good options to actually punish afterwords.
His mobility is overrated. In some ways even Nariko has better mobility.
His level 1 is actually really good if you know how to use it correctly. It has a very quick activation, so it's difficult to knock him out of it because even though its verticle, it still hits people right next to him.
Second of all, he has an answer to almost very situation through his different guns, some have very little AP gain but he is an excellent zoner because of his very diverse arsenal. His melee capabilities I think are at least average and grant him great mobility. He is one of the best when it comes to avoiding level 3 supers like Kratos'. Most characters specialize in range with some CQC options or visa versa. Where as Jak truly can be dangerous from any range.
I think Jak is about middle of the pack
Name three things that Jak does better than Ratchet or Drake.
First off I said "Middle of the pack" so I'm not saying he's the best, I would agree that about half the roster is better than him, that being said, Drake is definitely one of the better characters. But for Drake I would say 1) "debatably" better air game. 2) quicker level 1 activation [doesnt require a second button press to activate it] but that doesnt make it a better super, just quicker. 3) To my knowledge, Drake doesn't have a block breaking move aside from a throw or super, but Jaks wave concusser can break blocks As for Rachet, 1) Jaks level 3>Ratchets level 3. 2) Jak has greater mobility. 3) Jak has a better air game than Ratchet
No such thing as a worst character in the game. Sorry.
Even then, Jak would be far from the worst.
I disagree with both these statements =p
Your opinion. But here is my point:
why are there such things as good Sir Dans? Sir Dan is low tier too right? It should be impossible for him to win against good people right? Not necessarily. You see, every character has an obvious weakness as well as the player. Recognize this weakness, have skill, and have strategy, anyone can win with any character.
