In today’s world, first-person shooting games and MOBA games populate the gaming scene. In fact, they’re so popular now that people are engaging in eSports, playing these games to earn money and some awards.
Although that is admirable, I still feel that platform games offer the most fun. You see, back in the day, we usually have platform games on our game consoles.
The likes of Spyro, the Super Mario series, just to name a few, are amazing platform games that really is enjoyable to play.
In this article, I want to have a walk down memory lane and talk about a particular Playstation 2 game that is considered to be one of the greatest platform games on the game console.
The game I am talking about is Jak 3. Jak 3 is the final installment of the Jak and Baxter series and this game is a 3D platform/shooter game.
The story begins just after the events of Jak 2. Jak was exiled from Haven due to crimes that he did not commit.
Apparently, the “deathbots”, the royal guard’s, were reprogrammed to turn on the King’s men and they’ve basically overrun the city.
Seeing that Jak is the only one capable of programming robots, he was framed to be the mastermind behind this plot.
Jak is then sent to a desolate place called the “Wasteland” where it is known to be inhospitable and unsuitable for living.
During Jak and Daxter’s travel to the wasteland, they eventually passed out and was rescued by desert-dwellers.
They are then brought to Spargus City where they had a meeting with the King. Damas is the king of Spargus and he tells them both that in order for them to regain their citizenship, they must do some things first.
They then meet up with a Precursor monk that goes by the name of “Seem”. According to him, the world is in danger because of the threat of the Day Star. After the meeting, Jak went to the precursor temple to know more information about the Day Star.
Upon their arrival, they sought the council of the precursors and they said that the world is in danger because of the “Dark Ones” and Jak must do whatever he can to stop the Dark Ones from summoning the Day Star.
During the course of the story, Jak and Daxter will have to fight the forces of the Dark Ones and also reclaim their citizenship back.
The gameplay of Jak 3 is a mix between platform elements as well as some driving and a little bit of combat via shooting.
Jak will have Spargus City as his main hub where he can buy equipment and upgrade his gear and he can also get missions from the characters that are present in the city.
Jak 3 is a non-linear game where each mission is sure to bring fun and enjoyment to anyone who is playing it. Mission objectives may range from solving a puzzle, reaching a particular destination, and by defeating specific enemies.
Jak 3 is an amazingly fun game and one that you should consider getting if you have a Playstation 2 game console.
