** To a lesser degree, the [=PS3=] ports have some issues of their own, like some minor sound and graphics issues, though for the most part, they're still perfectly playable and nowhere near as bad as the Vita versions. Unlike the Vuta versions, fans like the [=PS3=] ports enough to reccomend them to someone who never played the games.

* SoOkayItsAverage: Seems to be the case with the ''Daxter'' game release on ,[[UsefulNotes/PlayStationPortable PSP]]; it's neither as well-loved as the original trilogy nor as hated as [[VideoGame/JakAndDaxterTheLostFrontier The Lost Frontier]].

** Also, Keira, Jak's official LoveInterest, gets a [[{{TheOtherDarrin}} change in voice actress]] from Anna Garduno to Creator/TaraStrong in her third official appearance. Strong is also the original voice actress for Talwyn Apogee in the ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank'' series; in 2013, Talwyn, who's Ratchet's LoveInterest, gets a change in voice actress in ''her'' third official appearance.

* FollowTheLeader: It is by no mere coincidence that ''Jak II'' was made considerably [[DarkerAndEdgier darker]] than its predecessor and was released around the time people would just be finishing up ''[[VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto Vice City]]'' and needing something to placate their sandboxing fix. The first game is also a blatant ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'' clone, but it's more forgivable than most due to the game's absolutely exquisite presentation. The transfer from "traditional collectathon platformer" to "action game with some platforming elements" is generally considered justified, as open world steal-car games went from strength to strength in the early 2000s, while character platformers nearly disappeared entirely for the next decade ([[GrandfatherClause unless they starred Mario]]).

* PortingDisaster: The Vita ports are abysmal. First, there are the framerate issues. The first game is playable, but the sequels often drop to single digits. Combined with the control compression [[note]]Dark Jak in 2 is on the rear touch panel, you '''will''' accidentally waste the power[[/note]], the port is one of the worst Vita ports out there.

* MostWonderfulSound: The roar of your Dark Eco maxing out in ''Jak X'', signifying iminent awesomeness. Hell yeah. Also the charging noise of the Wave Concussor. Not necessarily "wonderful" as such, but the huge explosions triggered by the dark bomb and the supernova sound both awesome and immensely satisfying.

Added DiffLines:

* TheWorldIsJustAwesome: In the Precursor Legacy, the horizon is invariably dotted with interesting landmarks that usually turn out to be explorable locations later. There are sufficiently high vantage points in the latter half of the game where the ''entire'' game world can be seen, to this effect.

** Light Jak's regeneration makes a high pitched hum that was clearly meant to invoke this. Given that it signifies you going from your last legs back to full health, it's entirely understandable.



** For ''Jak 3'', you easily could replace "Baron Praxis" with "Count Veger" in the above statement, though many point to his [[spoiler:gloating to Jak immediately after Damas' death]].

** Pretty much every time we see anything corrupted by dark eco qualifies in some way as well, up to and including Jak.
