Items[edit]

  • Eco
  • Weapons
  • Vehicles - Given the enormity and variance in terrain of the Wasteland, vehicles play a large role as off-road transportation is introduced, fueled by a true-to-life physics engine.[1] GameSpy said the vehicles had "sluggish control systems" and thought "a specialized dune buggy wouldn't keep on flipping on its side as much as Jak's vehicles tend to."[2]

Locations[edit]

  • The Old World - The Jak world as of The Precursor Legacy. A fictional planet created by Naughty Dog specifically for the game. It contains a multitude of very different locales for the player to explore, ranging from jungles to volcanoes.
  • Haven City - A dystopia ruled by Baron Praxis and his Krimzon Guard law enforcers. Haven City often serves as a hub, whereas the player is given tasks that must often be fulfilled outside of the city, places that are separated via airlocks. In Jak 3 the city is engulfed in war for control of the streets.[1] This city is the successor of Sandover Village.
  • The Wasteland- A desert environment five times the size of Haven City with multiple areas including mines and a volcano.[1] Given the enormity and variance in terrain, vehicles play a large role as off-road transportation is introduced, fueled by a true-to-life physics engine.[1] It ranked 8th place on IGN's "The Wednesday 10: Gaming Dystopias"[3]
