SLOPPY SHOOTING LETS DOWN COMEBACK DUO.
EIGHT years after their debut on PlayStation 2, Jak and Daxter are back for another round of platform action.
Sharing many similarities with the Ratchet & Clank series, the dynamic duo's latest outing on PSP is unfortunately spoiled by weak camera controls and sloppy shooting mechanics.
While there are plenty of enemies to take down and a plethora of platforms to negotiate, the flimsy controls spoil the fun. This is mostly due to the PSP's hardware.
The analogue stick is used to move, while the shoulder buttons rotate the camera.
This leads to frustrating moments and as the game lacks a lock-on feature, fighting enemies can be more trouble than it should be.
The Warhawk-inspired flying sections fare better, with the tight air-to-air combat a joy to play.
