Jak and Daxter is one of my favorite game series of all time.
In fact, I’ve always been drawn to character-driven, 3D action platformers — the games that spawned from Super Mario 64 and its ilk. There’s something infinitely entertaining about running, jumping and gliding around a three-dimensional space when the laws of physics don’t apply quite like they’re supposed to.
This is why I had so much fun playing ReCore, a new Xbox One console exclusive platformer from Comcept. It’s also why I still haven’t given up on ReCore, despite the countless inexplicable design decisions and glaring technical flaws that threaten to derail the experience at nearly every turn.
