To say that the sequel was [[EvenBetterSequel near-universally seen as an improvement over the original]] would be a total understatement: the world is even more elaborate and interesting than ever and the collect-a-thon and eco gameplay is completely eschewed in favor of mission-based gameplay, while still mixing in some healthy platforming segments throughout the game. There is much more variety in gameplay: you can use guns, Jet-Board through the city, hijack vehicles (à la ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto''), pilot a mech suit here and there, among other things. The difficulty was [[SequelDifficultySpike beefed up considerably]], [[TropesAreNotBad but this may have been a response to the original game's low difficulty]]. The story was vastly improved, with much more characterization and more plot twists than you can shake a stick at. While the game didn't sell as well as the first game, it still did well enough to be considered a hit and received universal praise from critics and gamers.

The DarkerAndEdgier second installment of the ''VideoGame/JakAndDaxter'' series.

The sequel starts as Jak and co. activate the device [[ContinuityNod they found at the end of]] [[VideoGame/JakAndDaxterThePrecursorLegacy the first game]] -- which not only releases an army of [[HordeOfAlienLocusts horrific creatures]] into their world, but also catapults them into the [[CrapsackWorld totalitarian empire]] of [[WretchedHive Haven City]]. The group is seperated upon impact and Jak is immediately captured by the despotic [[BigBad Baron Praxis]] and used as a guinea pig for his horrific [[PsychoSerum Dark Eco]] [[PlayingWithSyringes experiments]], in an attempt to create a weapon strong enough to destroy the [[AlwaysChaoticEvil Metal Heads]], the very creatures Jak [[NiceJobBreakingItHero unintentionally unleashed into the world in the first place.]] Daxter manages to escape and has his own separate adventures (via the ''Daxter'' spin off).

** If, however, you have a very large amount of precursor orbs, you can master the race you're stuck in, and look around other areas for orbs you've missed, or perhaps Onin's button-pressing minigame. If you get 200 orbs, you can activate [[NewGamePlus Hero Mode]], technically bypassing the bug, and meaning that all of your effort for the last eleven hours was worth it after all. If you're already playing Hero Mode, however... [[UnstoppableRage well, you're pretty fucked.]] Doubly true if you're playing the HD version on PS3, since there's no memory card to send to Sony.

* TheBattleDidntCount: The only times the boss you killed actually IS killed is if it's a weak sub-boss or the final battle.

*** [[spoiler:At one point, Kor puts his hand over his abdomen as if he's experiencing discomfort, and promptly dismisses it as "just his aching bones" when questioned about it. With the knowledge that the eco shield around the city is inhibiting his strength...]]

* DeiselPunk: The design of some of the Zoomers is evocative of this. There's a twin-bodied two-seater that looks like an oldsmobile crossed with a Franchise/StarWars speeder, a three-seater that looks kind of like a Volkswagen and a two-seater with wings and a body reminiscent of a muscle car. It even has racing stripes.
