    maastas's Jak III (PS2)

    [February 21, 2008 12:54:36 AM]


    When I was able to walk around freely outside into the world, I was able to go around a lot of different places, but there was nothing to do outside the town. So even when I thought I had finally found a part of the game where I could wonder around, I found myself going back into the town in order to find something to do.

    As I continued playing inside the town, the missions keep coming and there is not much free world to play. Each mission needs to be completed perfectly, and on races you need to win first place or you fail. This gets really annoying really fast. The fact that I have to continue trying the same race over and over and over again only frustrated me to the point where I began to get angry. To tell the truth, I wasn’t enjoying this game too much. I want to see what happens in the end and what happened in the beginning, but I’m not sure if I’m going to play this game all the way through.


    Even though you are able to get out into the world and move around, there is nothing you can actually do besides walk around on it. The entire time that I played I was going from mission to mission. Even though the game is made to look like it has an open world, the story line is very linear. You have to complete different tasks, puzzles and missions to continue the game. The graphics are 3Dimentional and very cartoon-like, which attracts people’s (kids) attentions. I like the fact that there is actual voices through out the entire game instead of reading dialog boxes.

    Also, I enjoy the fact that there are a lot of different aspects to the game. For example, you can ride a “horse creature” and you can ride a motor vehicle. For now that’s all I’ve discovered in the short time that I’ve played.

    The game begins when Jack is abandoned in the middle of the desert by the people who seem to be his comrades. They claim that what is happening to the city is all his fault and the people don’t want him to be around. After he is left behind with two animal comrades, they take off into the desert. There, they are found by some members of a hidden civilization. During this time, Jack has flashbacks of what happened in the city. They seemed to have been attacked by someone who destroyed their city in the search for something, and for some reason they link the attackers to Jack.


    The game begins by throwing you into a training camp which takes place in an arena where the entire hidden civilization is waiting for you to get killed. In this place, you learn step by step how to use each of your controls. Since you have complete control of your camera, it becomes one more control you need to take care of. In the beginning, I was able to go through the jumping part of the tutorial okay, but when it got to the point where I had to kill enemies, I got lost. After many unexplained deaths I finally found my energy bar. That’s when I began to realize the damage I was truly getting while fighting the enemies. Then after many more deaths I realized I could not only shoot them, but also punch them after I ran out of ammo. That way I was able to finish off all twenty enemies I needed to kill to advance to the next step, which was one more thing I wasn’t sure about. It wasn’t until a long time when I realized why it was that I kept killing them and dying and nothing ever happened. So to me, that part of the game was really confusing.

    Eventually I advanced through the game, and I found myself ridding a “horse-creature” looking for kangaroo-rats. During this part of the game I was able to find that I had other powers I didn’t know of, which I could’ve probably used during my training earlier if I had known about them. But this part of the game was helpful so I could see the world of the game.

    When I found a monk and a weird creature, I had to solve a “puzzle” which also had no clear directions of what exactly I was supposed to do, so I was defeated a couple of times. Then I was able to figure out what I was supposed to be doing and finally passed that part of the game. I suppose the puzzle helped me get familiarized with the buttons on the remote because this is one of the first times I play the PS2 and I really couldn’t just remember which buttons were what shape.
