* ContestedSequel: [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]]; fans divided on whether this is the best game in the trilogy, the weakest, or even the middle, but those in the "weakest" camp still generally regard it as a good game in its own right, and a good ending to the trilogy nonetheless.

* AssPull: Jak suddenly wanting to return to Haven City. He was given the perfect opportunity to go straight back there thanks to Ashelin, but rejects it and angrily says that he's staying in the Wasteland. Then suddenly the game points you in the direction of the temple to get him back home with no transition whatsoever, nor any scene building up to this.

** Ashelin suddenly having enough power and authority to dissolve the city council on a whim near the end of the game when in the beginning she couldn't even stop them from banishing Jak.

* ViewerGenderConfusion: Seem, the feminine voice really doesn't help in that regard.

to:

** During the sections that you play as Daxter, it is possible to kick while hanging from ceiling grates. Since there are no enemies or breakable objects up there, this is never put to any kind of use.

* GameBreaker: The Beam Reflexor upgrade for the Blaster. The shots bounce off walls and home in on enemies and it can be fired fairly frequently, allowing it to easily clear even very large rooms in under a minute. It's also one of the very first upgrades you get in the game.

* [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment Big-Lipped Alligator Mission]]: There's a mission where Daxter gets sucked into a computer and has to play a Pac-Man style game to find a MacGuffin. It evidently wasn't supposed to be ''that'' much of a stretch, since the character who put him into the computer [[BrainUploading was one with the computer himself]], but Daxter's ''whole body'' getting sucked through the ''screen''?

* BrokenBase: The cutscene where Jak [[RefusalOfTheCall refuses the chance to return to Haven City]] out of anger for being a HeroWithBadPublicity. Many fans, even those who didn't like the game's pairing of them, found him being a {{jerkass}} towards Ashelin was just too harsh. [[ChangedMyMindKid Fortunately, he gets better almost right away.]]

* HarsherInHindsight: One of the adverts for the game parodied LukeIAmYourFather, with Daxter attempting to convince Jak he was his father and the announcer assuring the audience that the game wouldn't "end like this".

* {{Narm}}: The battles between the Freedom League and the Metal Heads/KG bots become hard to take seriously, especially after the War Factory is destroyed. The ''entire city'' sans the port consists of endlessly respawning soldiers and enemies killing each other ''over'' and ''over''. You can't even help effectively because the FL troops are just [[PaletteSwap Palette Swaps]] of the original guards, so your weapons will automatically target them too.
