Expecting an easy, light-hearted adventure, similar to Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy? Haha, no. In fact, the first game can be seen as an experimental attempt, in that the series was trying to find an identity for itself.
Jak II introduces many new gameplay elements, a darker tone, and all while making connections to the original story of the first game. In fact, it picks up directly from the ending of The Precursor Legacy, as Jak, Daxter, Keira, and Samos soon discover the purpose of the giant Precursor door that was in Gol and Mai’s Citadel.
