Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy
The Jak and Daxter Trilogy (also known as Jak and Daxter Collection in other NTSC territories) is a collection of the remastered ports of the first three games in the Jak and Daxter series. The remasters were developed by Mass Media Games, with grounds on the originals by Naughty Dog, and published by Sony Computer Entertainment. The remastered collection features all 3 games running at 720p 60FPS.
The game involves solid, bouncy platforming Naughty Dog had been known for since their Playstation debut of Crash Bandicoot, with more open-world, gunplay and vehicle focussed gameplay in the 2nd and 3rd games in the series. While the second game chose a darker interpretation of Jak and his world. All the 3 games in the series are known for innovation and creativity, including combat-vehicles, pilotable robots, hi-jackable civilian vehicles, gunplay, dark and light-based powers for Jak and jet board gameplay akin to the Tony Hawk series.
No options that deviate from the default configuration are recommended for this title. The full list of default options is available here.
Manually saving or loading in Jak 2 and 3 will cause the game to hang but will still save your progress. To continue, you will have to restart the emulator. This makes the games laborious to play relying mainly on the autosave functionality.
Custom Icon Art by Jjw410
Custom replacement icon art by user Jjw410. Can be switched with original icon by renaming the image "ICON0.PNG" and replacing the file of the same name in the game's "PS3_GAME" directory (it is recommended to retain the original art for safety). The Author removed the TM symbol (looked out of place and cheap next to the logo) and fixed a small black dot obfuscating the logo's glow.
