The irascible Daxter's first foray on PSP finds the ottsel searching for pal Jak in a series of futuristic platform-style environments. In order to find clues to his friend's whereabouts, Daxter signs up for a job as Haven City's pest exterminator. The cantankerous critter must now battle hordes of metallic insects while exploring the city's different sectors and mastering a few tools of the trade. Available gadgets include a bug swatter and an upgradeable spray gun, but Daxter's agility is also an advantage: he can climb walls, sneak up on enemies, hop in vehicles, and scoot through tight spaces. Players looking for a little more hands-on action will be able to challenge up to three other friends in an assortment of combat arenas. The game also offers support for the PlayStation 2's Jak X: Combat Racing, where players can unlock extra features in either game by connecting the two platforms via USB cable. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
