Jak and Daxter Collection Review

Light on features, the Jak and Daxter Collection is likely to have limited appeal.

Jak & Daxter Collection has been a long time coming. Given Sony's track record for HD remasters and Naughty Dog's rise in popularity thanks to Uncharted, it was surprising that these PS2 heroes hadn't been given the HD treatment earlier.
