by Rainier on March 23, 2006 @ 1:42 p.m. PST

Daxter takes the Jak and Daxter franchise in a whole new direction, taking place during the two years Daxter searches for Jak, who was imprisoned during the events that led to the start of Jak II. Daxter, now on his own in an unfamiliar place, quickly realizes that being small and furry won't help his chances of survival. To help stamp out a mysterious metalbug infestation, Daxter takes on a job as a pest exterminator, enabling him to explore parts of Haven City in an effort to collect the clues that will lead him to Jak. But Daxter will soon discover that he'll get more excitement from his job than he originally bargained for. Daxter will be one of the first PSP titles to support connectivity with a PS2 title.

The story takes us back to the events that led to the start of Jak IITM. Jak has been imprisoned in Haven city jail, Daxter now on his own in an unfamiliar position, quickly realises that being small and furry won't help his chances of survival and it is time to get tough!

Daxter takes on a job as a pest exterminator to help stamp out a mysterious bug infestation, this new job allows Daxter freedom to roam across Haven City collecting information that could lead to the release of his incarcerated friend. However Daxter soon discovers that he'll get a little more excitement from his job than he originally bargained for!

Being a pest exterminator is hard work and a work shy Ottsell can't be expected to wipe out an entire infestation without conserving energy with some well timed naps can he?! As Daxter takes time off his bug squashing duties he invites you into his dreams where he is the hero in several playable movie themed mini games.

Daxter also features cross platform compatibility with Jak X on PlayStation 2, allowing gamers who own both titles to unlock new content. With over 17 levels and 13 minutes of hilarious cut scenes, this title is guaranteed to take gamers on a classic platform adventure.
