Are you ready for a whole new fun-filled platform adventure with Daxter as the hero? The story takes us back to the events that led to the start of Jak II. Jak has been imprisoned in Haven City jail, Daxter now on his own in an unfamiliar position, quickly realises that being small and furry won't help his chances of survival and it is time to get tough! Daxter takes on a job as a pest exterminator to help stamp out a mysterious bug infestation, this new job allows Daxter freedom to roam across Haven City collecting information that could lead to the release of his incarcerated friend. However Daxter soon discovers that he'll get a little more excitement from his job than he originally bargained for!

Being a pest exterminator is hard work and a work shy Ottsell can't be expected to wipe out an entire infestation without conserving energy with some well timed naps can he?! As Daxter takes time off his bug squashing duties he invites you into his dreams where he is the hero in several playable movie themed minigames. Daxter also features cross platform compatibility with Jak X on PlayStation 2, allowing gamers who own both titles to unlock new content. With over 17 levels and 13 minutes of hilarious cut scenes, this title is guaranteed to take gamers on a classic platform adventure.

Play as the Dastardly Daxter - Daxter allows gamers to play from his perspective offering a distinctive set of moves with agile abilities that allows players to climb walls, creep up on enemies, fit in small places and maneuver vehicles.

The Best In Action Platforming - Taking a job as a pest exterminator, to fight an ongoing invasion of metal-bugs, Daxter comes equip with gadgets to rid the city of these metal nuisances. Get close up and personal by using your flimsy bug swatter to squash an army of attacking insects or your spray gun to hover around a variety of environments while picking up various upgrades.

    Exciting Wi-Fi Gameplay - Compete head-to-head against crushing opponents in a variety of mulitplayer combat arena challenges.

      PlayStation 2 and PSP Connectivity - Gamers can use their PSP to unlock drivers, vehicles and graphics for Jak X: Combat Racing or connect to their PlayStation 2 to open up secret features in Daxter via USB connection.

       Daxter is a great action/platform game, well worth the money

      As you might know, daxter carries on from jak while he is incarcerated in haven city prison. daxter takes on the role of a pest exterminator, and as you can imagine this is where the craziness starts, bugs of every shape and size, from little tiny critters, shooting bugs and just plain massive monsters that need a good swatting, they're everywhere and on every single one of the 20 missions, the missions can sometimes can get challenging and can take a while depending on how good you are. Daxter has a cocky attitude and is shown as the story progresses. the controls are easy to get used to, attacking is mostly one button. I rated the game 4/5 because like most PSP games, the graphics are fairly average. The storyline could also use a slight tweak because it only focuses on the basics and not really much of the minor details. Attack and health upgrades are obtained by collecting things known as precursor orbs that unlock dream sequences, in the dreams daxter plays key characters from films (eg - the matrix and lord of the rings) and alot of button mashing is involved, there are about 5 or 6 of these dream sequences, which gives you a break from the missions. i think the most challenging missons are the fish cannery and the second to last misson which is in the prison, there are a few human(ish)guards which gives it that extra bit of a challenge. Overall this game is well worth the money, especially if you like the platform type games where you have to combat enemies whilst getting through the insane but enjoyable traps and obstacles. A great game and you should really take your time in playing it and collecting all the gems and orbs(by the way there are 1000 of 'em). Fantastic :).

       Great a must have for psp, but not Jak II

      Daxter is great and simple fun. you get to try being daxter for more then just 2min and to be honest i didn't think it would be good. i have all the ps2 games of the series, but turning a side kick joker into a lead character thats a hard thing to do and yet they did it. but don't compare it to Jak II because it doesn't have the same fell or intense story (you could argue that it doesn't have one most of the time). so if you are looking for the big missing link in the story then i'd say not that either. what it is, is a fun little next gen crossing of mario and jak...

       Amazing

      I like this game alot :) The story is very good, and you can follow it even if you don't have ps2 or the series of games of jak and daxter.

      So far i've made it till 3/4 of the game and i don't regret spendin my money on it ^^

      I personally like daxter's character because he likes alot women LOL.. so whenever the pretty girl comes he's always flirtin with her hah..

      Even the levels are nice, the fact that in daxter, you can use the backpack to hover in the air is a variation from crash bandicoot makes it a worth to buy.

      2 thumps up :D

       Fantastic
