I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

What do these ratings mean?

"Yay! It's Mario Kart meets Jak and Daxter! What could go wrong?" Ummmmmm... almost everything.
Naughty Dog has been milking away the Jak series for few years now. But they, really, should've stopped at Jak 3. I mean, racing was a large part of Jak 3 but they didn't have to spin it off. This game tries so hard to be a Mario Kart, but it's not. In Mario Kart you get to choos from several of your favorite Nintendo characters (each with their own abilities) but in Jak X you only get to choos a few cars with all the same abilities. The only powers ups you can pick up during a race are stronger bullets, missles (like green shells), guided missiles (like red shells), time freeze (like thunder bolt), and your never ending suppily of bullets. To top all of this off the game has finger-cracking controls. It's like you must take yuor finger off the gas just to use a power up. I mean, even Nintendo handled this better with the Gamecube's controler! One of the things this game does do well is it's story. It has some humor and dramatic elements in it and it's very well written as most Jak games. Overall, this game would please the hardcore Jak fan, but not at all racing fans or normal gamers or me. This game could've been better but I guess Sony wanted to release Jak X along with Sly and Ratchet. It fells somewhat rushed in a way.




Stay tuned for more of my reviews and make sure to rate my reviw and leave comments for it, i'm leaving room for improvement!
