Daxter is a fictional character from the Jak and Daxter video game series. First introduced in The Precursor Legacy, Daxter is Jak’s best friend and was accidentally transformed into another.
The story of the game is about Daxter trying to rescue Jak from imprisonment. It takes Daxter on a two-year-long adventure as an exterminator for an Osmo. He figured that that’s the best way to find Jak. This is because as an exterminator he gets to explore different parts of Haven city. You meet some old and new characters along the way but there aren’t many twists to the story.
What you could be impressive in Daxter is the variety of gameplay. There is on-foot combat with your fly swatter and your bug spray then there is platforming, again with you bug spray which allows you to hover in the air for a while. There are also vehicle missions where you get to drive around hover vehicles around the level while completing various objectives.
There are also some mini-games aka “dream sequences” where you get to act out Daxter’s ‘heroic fantasies”. These will give you either a live upgrade or a new combo move. they can be unlocked by collecting orbs through every level. The controls are responsive and the control scheme is very intuitive for the platforming and the combat. The game seems to be very easy even for nongamers. There checkpoints that are very closely based. The fighting and the puzzles aren’t really a problem even at the end of the game.
Besides platforming around the place, Daxter will also have the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a vehicle throughout the game. Reminiscent of the first game’s vehicular segments. These vehicle levels are fun and provide a different challenge than the platforming levels. They also help keep things fresh and break up the gameplay a little. On top of that, there are also moments of stealth, and I was actually pretty surprised at how challenging the game’s stealth portions were.
