Jak and Daxter Collection preview

Sony's HD collections have been the gold standard of HD collections. God of War, Sly, and Ico have all received impressive HD facelifts--and they certain fare much better than offerings made by Ubisoft and Capcom. So, how does Jak and Daxter's foray into the world of 720p fare? It looks pretty good.

I was unimpressed at first, watching a cutscene rendered in Jak 1's engine. While the visuals have been spruced up, the close-ups featured in the movies only highlighted the low-res texture work and low polygon count of the models. However, when the camera zoomed out during regular gameplay, I was impressed by how clean and bright everything looked.

Jak and Daxter Collection coming in February in 3D

Before Naughty Dog went on to create the Uncharted series for PlayStation 3, it worked on the Jak & Daxter franchise. While the characters are a bit furrier than Nathan Drake and company, it's interesting to discover similarities between the two series.

The Jak & Daxter series is the next Sony franchise to get the HD collection treatment. Coming in February, the Jak and Daxter Collection includes Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, Jak II, and Jak 3.
