Jak X
« on: October 23, 2005, 07:21:00 pm »
Mariokart's track intricacies
Twisted Metal's weapon systems
Jak and Daxter's fun and involving story lines
Add them all up and what do you get?  Jak X Combat Racing.  I love this game so far, the story line is wonderfull, the characters are cool, and the mood is still all dark and stuff.  Unlike most spin-off games this one does it right.  Personally I say anyone interested in the J&D series hsould check this out.
One day, when the zombies rise and destroy humanity; I will survive, I will live on, I will take your best stuff for myself.

so like on a scale of one to ten how would you rate it.  As I must admit I'm a little skeptical about this game, mainly about the car physics.  I rember how damn hard those races were in Jak 3, going flying fifty miles into the air at the slightes bumb, and the horrible vehicle handling...  Please say this is not so in Jak X.

The handeling is mostly improved, but as you upgrade your cars you do start running into this problem again.
But it's still a great game, I'm raiting it a 7.
Good story, good gameplay, they got the voices back, old characters return, new characters emerge.  Though the plot seems slightly contrived at the beginning it's panning out really well.  It's making me want to go back and play Jak 2 and Jak 3 again.  Also the new offense/defense weapons system is very very nice.

Bad points:
Low health meter - You have infinite lives, but 1 hit can sometimes kill you

Mean Puter - Sometimes the computer seems to gang up on you, one driver will kill you, then as soon as you respawn another will do the same.  Other times the computer will steal items or hoard them.

Obstacles - You'll hit walls, pipes, rocks, everything... and blow up almost each time... ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Pinto raceway.

Good points:
Speed - Lots and lots of frigging speed. forget that slow ass 150CC Mariokart, THIS is driving in the fast lane.  Some races you go so fast the the track will blur

Weapons - Seaker missles, nova blasts, machine guns, crows feet, rear mounted guns, shields, oil slicks, smoke screens, dual or quad missle launchers, grenades, land mines, all these and more can be yours if the Eco is right!

Story - What can I say, since the inception of the series, Naughty Dog has whipped up great story lines (Most notable in Jak 2 & 3) and they did it again. It's an ever evolving plot with twists and hints at foul play.

In-Car-radios - Listen to other drivers talking trash... it can be funny at times.
One day, when the zombies rise and destroy humanity; I will survive, I will live on, I will take your best stuff for myself.

I don't know much about Jak 2 or 3, but I remember the hours me and my friend would spend playing the first one. FUN TIMES... /me goes off down memory lane for all times

Almost everything on this board is said sarcastically. Don't take it seriously.
