In addition, this isn't the "complete" Jak and Daxter collection either. The collection doesn't come with The Lost Frontier, Jak X: Combat Racing, or Daxter for the PSP. Sure, these were weaker titles in the Jak and Daxter library, but their inclusion could have made this collection look more appealing to, say, people who had played all three of the mothership titles but never bothered to get a PSP to play the spinoffs.
This collection costs a cool 40 bucks, and while it includes all of the games that hardcore Jak and Daxter fans would appreciate, that is probably the last demographic that the collection appeals to. As someone who played all three games back when they were first released, I can honestly say I had fun playing them again. However, the HD facelift was nowhere near worth 40 George Washingtons. I was quite satisfied with dusting off the old PS2 and popping in my old disks whenever I wanted to replay Jak and Daxter.
If you missed any one of the original three Jak and Daxter titles, 40 bucks is more than worth getting to play these classics in HD. However, if you are a longtime fan, only pick this collection up if you have 40 dollars burning a hole in your pocket. It's fun, it's pretty, and it reminded me why Jak and Daxter was an awesome series, but that's all I can say for it.
