Daxter (PSP)

/ May 19th, 2006 No Comments

SYNOPSIS:
An all new adventure game for the PSP comes in the form of Daxter – the loveable and hilarious character made famous from the popular "Jack & Daxter" series previously exclusive to PS2. Now, the story centers around Daxter in the years that Jak was imprisoned (follow the Jak II storyline) and what he went through to survive. As the story unfolds, Daxter is on his own and gets a job as an exterminator. He uncovers a huge metalbug infestation while exploring Haven City, all in an effort to get the clues to help him find Jak.
FEATURE LIST
The list of features as supplied by the manufacturer:

* Play as the Dastardly Daxter – Daxter allows gamers to play from his perspective offering a distinctive set of moves with agile abilities that allows players to climb walls, creep up on enemies, fit in small places and maneuver vehicles

* The Best In Action Platforming – Taking a job as a pest exterminator, to fight an ongoing invasion of metal-bugs, Daxter comes equip with gadgets to rid the city of these metal nuisances. Get close up and personal by using your flimsy bug swatter to squash an army of attacking insects or your spray gun to hover around a variety of environments while picking up various upgrades.

* Exciting Wi-Fi Gameplay – Compete head-to-head against crushing opponents in a variety of mulitplayer combat arena challenges.

* All New PlayStation2 and PlayStation Portable Connectivity – Gamers can use their PlayStation Portable to unlock drivers, vehicles and graphics for Jak X: Combat Racing or connect to their PlayStation 2 to open up secret features in Daxter via USB connection.

GRAPHICS
Daxter absolutely shines on PSP and looks like an actual PS2 game played on a portable platform. The models used for Daxter in particular in the cut-scenes should wow you, and the animation used for moving around are fairly impressive. One standout feature of the graphics are the rich and varied environments, which are extremely interactive. This is easily a showcase title for PSP when it comes to the graphics – they are great.
SOUND
Again, I go back to the analogy that this is like playing a game on the PS2 – the voiceovers and acting talent shine through just like any other game in the series. The sound effects are well placed and well executed. The sound weaves in through the game very well and, coupled with the robust graphics, complete a fantastic audio and visual experience.
GAME PLAY
All fans of the Jak & Daxter series will rejoice – Daxter is a throw back right into what made the series fantastic and so popular. There are plenty of levels that require not just fighting (smashing & burning up metal bugs), but jumping, climbing, and sliding around all the levels. Every level has objectives to complete, whether its killing metalbugs, collecting orbs, or just getting to another part of the environment.

The missions are very straightforward and the first half of the game is pretty easy and should be a lot of fun for gamers of all ages. From there the gameplay definitely gets kicked up a notch in difficulty, and experienced Jak & Daxter games will enjoy the experience two-fold. Because there are multiple objectives outside of the main objective which moves you through the story, there's an incentive to play deeper (or just all over again) to uncover and unlock the secondary objectives.

ONLINE / MULTIPLAYER
Daxter is sure to become a classic hit for PSP owners and a showcase title for SCEA to hang its hat on. The game plays so well, looks so great, sounds wonderful, and has that wow factor of "I'm feeling like I'm playing a PS2 game!" that it should play a second time through for continued enjoyment.
OVERALL IMPRESSION
Daxter is really the first game on PSP that I can seriously point to and say, "now that's a great game" and really show off the graphic & animation capabilities of the portable console system. There hasn't been a game released to date like Daxter, giving it tremendous originality to gamers.

Overall, Daxter is a winner in our books, and comes highly recommended for purchase. Fans of the series will definitely be thrilled to go back to the same type of action in an all new environment and console system. The graphics are great, the gameplay is executed very well, and it all comes together for a very enjoyable gaming experience.
