Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy

Game Overview

Only one person may hold the secrets to undoing your friend's transformations. Together you must now take on these endeavors. From the makers of Crash Bandicoot comes Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, a 3D platformer with a twist. Collect Power Cells, destroy enemies and bash crates in amazingly detailed and lush environments, where everything is seemingly connected and your every action can make all the difference.

The Bottom Line

While exploring some ancient ruins on a forbidden island off the coast, Jak's best friend, Daxter, is knocked into a vat of Dark Eco--a terrifying and deadly substance that could corrupt the world forever--transforming him into a weasel-like rodent.

The village sage, Samos Hagai, tells Jak that there's only one person who holds the secrets to transforming Daxter back. Now the pair must set out on a quest in search of a wise old sage who has the power to restore Daxter to his former self.
