When we last left our heroes Jak and Daxter, they had finally collected all of the Precursor Stones and were preparing to enter the giant door that led to ...well, we never got a chance to see what was on the other side of that door, did we? I'll be honest with you, after working my ass off to collect every stone in the game, I felt rather cheated. But, despite this I still went on to play through Jak and Daxter
at least 3 more times, and the game still reigns as one of my favorites on the PS2. Now, nearly two years after their first adventure, Jak and Daxter are back -- and apparently that door lead to a not-so-happy place.
The first thing players are likely to notice about Jak II is the darker tone the entire game takes. The first game was a fun adventure, and carried with it a light-hearted feel. This is not the case with Jak II, which takes our heroes to a very dark place and features a more mature story line (making it Naughty Dog's first Teen rated game).
