Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, which is being created by former Crash Bandicoot developer Naughty Dog, is one of the prize jewels in the 2001 PlayStation 2 lineup. Today, we take an updated look at the game with new screenshots released by Sony Computer Entertainment America. Jak and Daxter is unique in that all of the levels in the game are housed within a massive gameworld. According to Naughty Dog, in the final release of the game players will be able to move from one level to the next at will, without any loading times. Jak and Daxter shares some of its controls and attack options with the Crash series--Crash's infamous spinning attack is included--but the game is also much more nonlinear than the Crash games. The 3D worlds are huge, and Jak can find his way over creeks and across beaches as he wishes.
Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy is scheduled for release later this year. We will have more on the game, including an extensive preview, later in the week.
