Batman has Robin. Sonic the Hedgehog has Tails. Even Sherlock Holmes had Watson. Practically every popular character has had a sidekick at some point. PlayStation protagonist Jak is no exception; his sidekick Daxter has accompanied him throughout his adventures. This time around, the half-otter, half-weasel stars in his own game for the PSP (which I guess you could call the PS3's own sidekick). Although it doesn't accomplish much in terms of storyline or character development, Daxter is a welcome addition to the action-adventure genre and provides some seriously entertaining gameplay.
Ottsel? Is That Even Legal?
Daxter?s storyline is essentially a subplot that fits into Jak II to provide additional details about the events of that game. However, even if you haven?t played any previous games in the series, it?s really pretty easy to follow; all you really need to know is that Dax takes on the role of an exterminator in order to battle metallic bugs and ultimately rescue Jak. The game consists of a large overworld that is used to access to most of the game?s levels. Dax battles through each level either on foot or by using one of several hovering vehicles, with the goal of getting insect infestations under control while collecting special eggs and other items while finding his way to the exit.
