Daxter!

The spin-off of the popular Jak and Daxter franchise has arrived, but will it live up to the "Jak and Dak" name?

First Impressions: Whenever possible, we try to give our loyal website viewers the most video footage and most in depth unbiased reviews imaginable. Part of that development is our "initial impressions" where we offer up our first impressions of the title that we are playing.

This gives our website visitors more of clear understanding of what to first expect out of the game when they initially pop it into their consoles.

If you scroll to the bottom of the page in the Rent vs. Buy section of the review and do not see the "final impressions" assessment then it's safe to say that you are reading our initial impression of the game. Once the final impression is up, there will be no further video or review done to that particular title.

Final Impressions: The final impression is just that, our completed breakdown and overall thoughts on the game based off of our entire game playing time.

You can locate the final impressions assessment in the "Rent vs. Buy" section of the review (always located at the very end of all of our reviews). Here you will be able to read our final thoughts on the title and also see any potential grade changes that were made to the game as well (higher or lower). Should a grading change occur, it will be clearly noted with the previous grade, the new grade, and why the change occurred.

Although this approach is more time consuming and requires many more man hours, our entire goal has always been to provide the best and completely unbiased reviews possible and we feel that the inclusion of the Initial Impressions and Final Impressions sections will give you a better view of what to expect from a new game.

All that we ask in return is for you to continue to support Krakrabbit.com by visiting the site and letting others know about our cause. Together we can supply our fellow gamers with the most impartial information so they can make an informed decision on whether to buy or rent this particular title.

Story? What Story: The story of Daxter takes place in the void between Jak 2 and Jak 3. During the time in between those two games, Daxter goes undercover as an exterminator to try to find out where his friend Jak is.

The story is there, but Daxter doesn't use it often enough. You will get calls from various people from different parts of Haven city, all of them wanting you to kill one type of bug, over and over, in "different" environments.

One Of A Kind: That's where the biggest problem lies in Daxter, the repetitiveness. As you traverse through the game, you will only encounter about one kind of bug. While you may see "different" variants of the same bug, they are almost always the same bug.

The Tools: Another aspect that the game could've been improved in is the weapons that Daxter has. The insect-killing weapons vary from a stick that zaps to bug to death, and a spray that kills the bug with fumes. That's about it, that's what you have to work with.

The fact that you only have two weapons on your journey is a huge flaw in the game. There is no reason to try to accomplish the game after you acquire both of those weapons.

Rent vs. Buy: Despite all of the blunders that this game makes, it's still an ok game. Daxter is a little repetitive, and the fact that there is nothing to look forward to after the first seven missions is a little sad, but this game is still decent.

IF you can find Daxter cheep, then go ahead and pick it up. Daxter isn't going to win Krakrabbit's Game of the Year award, but its still a solid game to kill time on the portable console.
