The controls for Jak II. Originally released on the PlayStation 2 in December 2003, the game was later ported to the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita in February 2012 and June 2013, respectively, as part of the Jak and Daxter Collection. As such, both the controls for the standard DualShock controller and those for the Vita will be included. Furthermore, the game received official emulation support on the PlayStation 4 in December 2017, though the controls to that of the PlayStation 2 and 3 releases are identical, save for the Select and Start buttons being mapped to the left and right sides of the touch pad, respectively.
Dark Jak is Jak's dark alter-ego, able to be activated after collecting enough dark eco (at which point a small Dark Jak visage will show in the bottom-left corner). During this form, Jak is unable to use zoomers, the JET-Board, or his guns. He is also incapable of rolling, and instead crawls more rapidly than usual. Additionally, dark powers acquired later on replace his usual moveset, though after performing a power he reverts to normal Jak.
