Jak II (Also known as Jak II: and The Beanstalk outside of Region 1) is a Science Fiction video game, spun off of The Legend of Zelda. It was created by Shigeru Miyamoto during his renegade time, working for Sony.
The game follows Jak, and his alter ego Jak II (Dark Jak) through their adventures in Haven City. Taking place in the same universe as The Legend of Zelda, with the notable exception of being on a different planet, in a different galaxy, with different characters, and the only thing in common about the two games is the shape of the characters ears.
Jak II is also the only game in the series. It was dubbed over with every language known to man, including Klingon and Ancient Greek.
After opening an Anus, Jak and Daxter are transported to the water park called Haven City. Once there Daxter runs off and gets laid, while Jak is captured by the TOTALLY RED Guard.
Jak is then taken to the Red Baron's research tower. Jak is experimented on for 2 decades until Daxter finally rescues him after he gets bored with playing with his anus. Jak has acquired a new power from the experiments. He learns that he has the power to change in to two people. One being known as Jak, and the other as HULK SMASH!!!, often called Dark Jak. Jak also develops a Dark Eco addiction from the Baron's experiments.
After escaping, Jak comes into contact with a old man, who offers to help him, if he helps him protect a child he was caring for. After helping him smuggle the child out of the country, the old man, (who's name is revealed to be KOAR) introduces Jak to the Punk Kings Of Haven. The Punk Kings Of Haven is a group of activists who are constantly opposing the Red Baron and his vicious ways. Jak goes on various missions for the Punk Kings Of Haven, until The Red Baron's grip of power is almost entirely gone.
Its at this time, KOAR, along with and army of Brick Heads attack the city. When confronted by Jak, KOAR transforms into his true form.
Jak returns to Haven city to commit suicide, and upon entering the bar, finds Daxter. Who has become a two hundred pound child pedophile.
Gameplay consists mostly of the player (Jak) hopping up and down until reaching the end of the game. There is little to no skill involved beyond slapping the gamepad until you either win the game or die trying.
Some segments involve the player taking control of one of the various vehicles, including: A hover-board, hovercrafts, mechs, rifts, and of course cabbage-mobiles.
Jak-The protagonist of the game. Jak is a hippie from hick country. He is sucked into a rift that brings him to the dystopia Haven City.
Jak II-Jak II also called Dark Jak, is Jak's evil twin, and split personality created from Baron Praxis's experiments. He's the exact opposite of Jak. Meaning, instead of a beatnik hippie, he's a district attorney.
Keira-The mechanic girl next door. She's one of Jak's closest friends. She's the daughter of Samus the Sage. She's hot the hots for Jak but she's got a few personality flaws that keep her from getting close to him.
