 Vs. Similarities: 1.Large world to explore 2.Many NPCs to interact with. 3.Expansive plots 4.Large cast of main characters 5.Shorter loading times than most games. 6.Variety of gizmos and weapons. 7.Plenty of different vehicles with their own handling to drive 8.Both main characters have to work their way up the latter to build their reputation. Differences: jakII 1.Has better graphics. 2.Npc A.I. is smarter 3.Unique original music. 4.more balanced weapons 5.Better gun handling 6.Smoother controls 7.Better Motorcyle handling 8.More fictional sci-fi like landscape and world. GTAVC 1.Has compilations of musician soundtracks stretching through multiple genres 2.Better Car handling 3.More types of weapons outside of guns 4.Goes for a more 80's but realistic look for the games world. 5.NPC's will attack you 7.More serious plot 8.Majority of the game takes place in the city/town areas. No outside areas. Jak II and Vice City less than a year apart if I am not mistaken, both have similar ideas and gameplay staples. But they both put a different cover on top of them. Which do you think did the better job, and is the software product higher in quality?

Wait are we comparing it to GTA III or GTA VC? Because you say III in the title and in the list, but posted the cover art for VC and mentioned VC in the last paragraph.

Oh, okay then. Well then that makes it harder. If it was Jak II vs GTAIII I'd definetly pick Jak II, since GTAIII never clicked with me, honestly, now with Jak II and VC it's a much harder decision. I'll say I prefer VC to do random crap and kill time with good gameplay but prefer Jak II when I want a story and cool characters with cool gameplay.

Very odd comparison.

Vice City by a landslide. I don't think any of the Jak games are all that great. Above average perhaps, but nothing special.

These games have very little in common, aside from some surface stuff.

I go with Vice City because I remember having so much fun with that game! You could play for hours and not get bored! I remember Jak 2 being quite fun as well but I don't think I ever got into the story or actually finished the game!
