Intro

Daxter: So there we were, wheel to wheel with the nastiest racing cars I've ever seen. Razor-sharp chrome gleaming in the dark, weapons bristling under rumbling hoods!

Shiv: Oh, the Kras City welcoming committee. Have a drink, friend.

Daxter: Yeah, well whoever they were, they messed with the wrong racers! Jak and I are world-famous! And we're connected too. We've been—thanks—invited to Kras City for the reading of some will, a rich guy named Krew.

Edje: The big gang lord?

Daxter: Yeah, "big" is right! We were Krew's muscle in Haven City, but old tub of butter kicked the bucket. Anyway, where was I? Oh yeah!

Daxter: Slowly, the racers circled us. The smell of fear hung in the air (and the smell of something else too!) I told Jak, "Lose the suckers!"

Razer: My, my! Sounds like this city's terribly dangerous. Maybe we should get law enforcement to crack down. (chuckles)

Daxter: Yeah, well, this place don't scare us. No nasty gang is gonna get us to turn tail and run!

Razer: Sounds like they had you dead to rights. How did you survive?

Daxter: Jak was barely able to handle himself, but with my help we took 'em all out until only one was left!

Razer: Really? You know, people in this town have a way of getting in over their heads... like at the bottom of the ocean.

Daxter: Eh, easy boys. My story's almost over.

Razer: Yes it is!

Daxter: Wait a minute, it gets better, really!

Jak: Dax, get in the car!

Daxter: Jak! Are you crazy?! You ruined my story!

Jak: Now!

Daxter: (yells) What are you waiting for?! Step on it, Jak!

Jak: I told you not to go out. We're getting death threats, Dax. Someone doesn't want us here.

Daxter: You think?! I say we take the next boat home.

Jak: Not a chance! Hang on!

Daxter: Jak!

Poison Toast

Daxter: Let's get this over with and blow this burg. Who called us here, anyway?

Keira: Krew's daughter, Rayn.

Jak: Krew had a daughter?

Daxter: Krew reproduced? Ew! Can you imagine what that tub of jelly must look like?

Rayn: Thank you for coming to Kras City. It looks like some didn't make it—ah well... I'm Rayn. Before father died, his wishes were simple: to have his will played for his closest associates, and for us to drink to his passing. This special vintage he kept for the very occasion, to toast his death. Here's to old friends, and to father's untimely death.

Daxter: (gulps, gasps)

Rayn: So, without further delay, his message to us.

Krew (hologram): Hello nearly friends (and mostly enemies). If you're listening to this message, then I must be dead. Oh well... As you all know, I loved racing, almost as much as I loved weapons. Alas, I never fulfilled my living dream of winning the biggest race of all: the Kras City Grand Championship. But even in death, I will field the greatest racing team ever assembled, and win the biggest race on the planet! You are the best of the best, and you will race for me!

Torn: Never!

Daxter: No way!

Jak: Forget it!

Krew (hologram): I expect you're all riled up by now. So let me tell you why you will race, and you will win! If all went as planned, you just gave a touching toast in my honor. Sorry to say, but I put poison in that special vintage! Quite unsporting of me, really.

Rayn: Father!

Krew (hologram): This is where Rayn probably gets upset. Sorry, dear. It's a slow-acting poison, or you'd already be dead! You have just enough time to finish this year's racing season. If you race for me and win, my associates will provide you each with an antidote to the poison. Simple, eh?

Ashelin Praxis: What the hell did you do to us?

Rayn: Please, I didn't know... I drank it too. Father never did play favorites.

Torn: Yeah? Well your father's crazy!

Keira: We're all crazy for coming here!

Jak: I think she's telling the truth.

Krew (hologram): Well, it's been one minute, so I figure by now, you're all arguing about how to get out of this mess. My advice is trust no one, win the race, and save yourselves!

Daxter: Jak, next time you invite me to one of your little parties, don't!

Jak: We can do this! We can race, and we can beat Krew at his own game!

Rayn: Father bought us the best mobile racing garage money can buy, and each of you has a racing car waiting. We're in this together, so let's get to it.

First round training (Kras City) (gameplay)

(At the start.)
Keira (communicator): It's been a while since you raced Jak, so let's take your vehicle out on a track and I'll go over the basics.

(Once the light turns green.)

Keira (communicator): Hit the gas, Jak!

On-screen: Press X to accelerate

(After accelerating for a few seconds.)

Keira (communicator): Brakes are there when you feel the urge, but knowing you they won't be the first thing on your mind.

(Once the light turns red.)

Keira (communicator): Hit the brakes, Jak!

On-screen: Press Square to brake

(After braking.)

Keira (communicator): Holding down the brake will stop your racer and put it into reverse. Hit reverse Jak!

On-screen: Hold Square to reverse

(After driving in reverse.)
Keira (communicator): Good! Feel the controls? Your racer has great steering response, and trust me, you'll need it for some of the more challenging courses.

Keira (communicator): Green eco powers your vehicle damage control. When you pick up green eco, you repair damage on your vehicle.

On-screen: Drive over Green Eco to repair vehicle

(After picking up green eco.)

Keira (communicator): Not bad, you finished your first training. Get ready for the next round.

On-screen: First round training complete!

Second round training (Icebound Citadel) (gameplay)

(At the start.)
Keira (communicator): Feels nice to be back in the saddle, huh Jak? Okay, take the vehicle out for a spin and let's see what you've got!

Keira (communicator): Pick up some blue eco! Watch your turbo meter for how much juice you've got in the tank, and use it when you really want to burn up the track!

On-screen: Grab a Blue Eco turbo booster

(After picking up blue eco.)

Keira (communicator): Your meter says you got turbo power! Use it Jak, and drop the hammer!

On-screen: Press R2 to use Turbo Boost

(Upon using the turbo.)
Keira (communicator): Oh yeah, now that's speed! Trust me, you'll need it.

On-screen: Finish the training course before time runs out!

(Upon completing the course.)

Keira (communicator): That was great, now you've mastered turboing! Let's move on to the next round of training.

On-screen: Second round training complete!

Third round training (Clifftop Battlefield) (gameplay)

(At the start.)

Keira (communicator): You can use the E-brake to get into a power slide on turns. You'll need to use power slides to get around aggressive corners. Try getting into a slide Jak!

On-screen: First build up some speed

(Upon gaining enough speed.)

Keira (communicator): Now hold the brake down, turn, and hang on!

On-screen: Tap Square or Circle and steer left or right to Power Slide!

(Upon failing the power slide.)
Keira (communicator): Not quite, try again!

(After power sliding, only if the previous slide did not make 150 meters.)

Keira (communicator): Power sliding, and hang time, add to your turbo meter. Try that again, Jak.

On-screen: Perform a 150 M Power Slide by boosting. Steer left or right and tap Square or Circle

(After making a 150 meter-long slide.)
Keira (communicator): Great, nice slide!

Keira (communicator): You can pull a one-eighty turn by holding down the emergency brake. Get up to speed and give it a try!

On-screen: First build up some speed

On-screen: Hold circle to perform a 180!

(If you fail the 180 degree turn.)
Keira (communicator): Almost, try again.

(After making a 180 degree turn.)
Keira (communicator): You're looking good!

Keira (communicator): If you wanna catch a little air, use the car's jump jets. Jump jets give you a little boost off the ground when you need it and will maximize your hang time. Try jumping, Jak!

On-screen: Use L2 to jump off a hill and get a long Hang Time!

(After getting hang time.)
Keira (communicator): All right! Three down, two to go!

On-screen: Third round training complete!

Fourth round training (Frozen Speedway) (gameplay)

(At the start.)
Keira (communicator): Picking up eco will power up your car and give you lots of options while you race. Try picking up a little yellow eco.

On-screen: Grab a Yellow Eco Weapon

(After picking up yellow eco.)
Keira (communicator): When you pick it up, the eco will be processed and an energy weapon will come online. An icon will appear telling you what weapon you've got.

Keira (communicator): That icon means you have missiles!

On-screen: When target turns red press L1 to fire

On-screen: Kill 20 Drones

(After using the missiles.)
Keira (communicator): There are different weapons yellow eco will give you, and the icons tell you which one you currently have available. Each weapon is unique, and each has strategic advantages in different situations. You'll have to experiment with each type to find your favorites.

(After destroying five drones.)
Keira (communicator): You also have a dark eco meter, you can power that up by using your weapons. The more you use 'em, the higher the meter will go; the higher the dark eco meter, the more powerful your weapons will get!

(Upon maximizing your dark eco meter.)
Keira (communicator): Your dark eco's maxed! Dark eco will make your weapons more powerful until you crash.

(After destroying twenty drones.)
Keira (communicator): Now that you know about yellow eco let's move on!

On-screen: Fourth round training complete!

Fifth round training (Forbidden Jungle) (gameplay)

(At the start.)
Keira (communicator): Okay, let's try something new. Red eco is for rear weapons. Try picking up red eco.

On-screen: Grab a Red Eco weapon

(After picking up red eco.)

Keira (communicator): That icon says you now have a red eco mine. You can activate a red-powered weapon with its own special fire button. Remember, this button will only discharge red weapons, and they go out the back! Try dropping a mine, Jak.

On-screen: Press L1 to activate Red Eco weapon

(Upon activating the mine.)
Keira (communicator): Good job! That'll give someone a headache!

Keira (communicator): Oh no! Some of Mizo's gang are on the track! Look out! He's launched a missile, drop a mine as a counter-move!

On-screen: Press L1 to launch a countermeasure!

(Upon dropping the mine and deflecting the missile.)
Keira (communicator): Nice!

On-screen: Survive to the end of the track! Press L1 to launch countermeasures.

(Upon completing the mission.)
Keira (communicator): All right, you've completed your training! Now let's see if you can hang with the big boys.

On-screen: Training missions complete!

After training missions (gameplay)

(Keira's lines as you are presented with new vehicles.)

Keira (communicator): Here's your first new vehicle Jak, this one's build for speed!

Keira (communicator): And when the need calls for something a little more rugged, use this one.

The First Race

G.T. Blitz: Welcome race fans to another turbo-charged season of high-stakes, high-speed racing. As usual, yours truly, G.T. Blitz, will give you a pit row view of all the action as the best racers of the world swap paint in their quest to claim the Kras City Grand Championship trophy! In the end, only one wheel jockey will claim the prize as the greatest racer in the land. And we'll be here to cover all the thrills, chills, and spills. The season's first race kicks off in a few minutes, so stay tuned, and keep those engines hummin'.

Jak: The first race...

Samos Hagai: I fear this affair will end badly. A wise man once said, "Be watchful of those in front of you, but beware of those behind."

Daxter: What wise man said that?

Samos Hagai: I did!

Torn: Look, none of us is happy about this, but we might as well make the best of it.

Rayn: My father provided everything we need to win. One of us can do it if we all–...

Ashelin Praxis: Your father got us into this mess, so zip it before I come over there and play daddy!

G.T. Blitz: Well, well, I was told we had some fresh wax rookies this year, but I had to eyeball it for myself. G.T. Blitz is the name. I'm the Kras City Racing Commissioner and star of the highest syndicated sports event on the planet. I just came by to wish you luck, and to skid down a few rules: No side bets. No cheating. No rule breaks or we'll break you! You in gear? This is show business boys... and girls. Only the best racers move up to the bigger events, so make me happy, and make the crowd scream!

Jak: Let's race.

The First Race (gameplay)

(Upon starting the first race.)
G.T. Blitz: Welcome to the first race of the season! Let's see whose got the tread to win it all!

More Heat

G.T. Blitz: You saw it here, folks—at least those of you who didn't die yawning or switch to the bran channel. An unknown driver wins his first big race, in lackluster fashion. So, tell us, what happened out there? Were you frightened?

Daxter: No!

G.T. Blitz: Well, wait till you race against the big name drivers.

Torn: It gets worse?

G.T. Blitz: (laughs) Much. Think you can handle it?

Keira: Give him a break!

G.T. Blitz: I'll take that as a "no" or, "no comment". And with that, let's take it down to Greaser in pit row!

G.T. Blitz: That's a wrap. Listen, I'm not getting much smoke off you guys, I need more spin, more heat! Ratings were down thirteen points on that last race; not happening! If you want to get into the club, you gotta win a lot more, and you gotta win big. Accumulate serious points and maybe I'll give you another interview. (chuckles) If you're still around.

Win or Die

Daxter: You know, except for a little rash in the nether regions, I feel fine. Maybe Krew was bluffing about the whole poison thing.

Ashelin Praxis: I had the bottle analyzed. There were traces of Black Shade at the bottom, a rare and deadly plant found in the wasteland—We were poisoned, all right.

Rayn: Father never cut corners. Trust me, it's the real deal.

Daxter: Never fear! When the going gets tough... Jak will get us out of it.

Jak: We're just gonna have to win the whole thing.

Daxter: Against those lunatic racers out there?! What are the odds?

Torn: You don't want to know.

Ashelin Praxis: No offense guys, but I'm not going to trust my life to anyone but me. Just stay out of my way, I'll win.

Daxter: Well somebody here had better win, or I'm going to be very pissed, and very dead!

Welcome to the Dethdrome

Daxter: Oh no. Here comes old tin grin himself!

G.T. Blitz: You newbies are finally going to see what I've been talking about all along, what makes this the most watched sport in the world: ultimate speed, and complete danger! I hope you didn't eat breakfast this morning, or you'll find it all over your suit later. (laughs)

Daxter: We're not afraid, right Jak? Right, Jak?! Hey! Say some hero stuff!

G.T. Blitz: Welcome to one of the fastest tracks in the world! This is the Dethdrome.

G.T. Blitz: Many people have died on those lanes, chasing a sad dream. Make the crowd scream for me!

G.T. Blitz: Good luck, you'll need it... more than I need ratings.

Red Cup Grand Prix Qualifier 1 (gameplay)

(At the start of the first Red Eco Cup Grand Prix qualifier race.)

Pecker: This is a Red Cup Grand Prix qualifying event. There is a lot on the line here today, my friends.

G.T. Blitz: This is a Red Cup Grand Prix qualifying event. Lots on the line here today!

Razer's Threat

Jak: Next time you and your thugs want a fight, maybe you should pick on someone your own size.

Razer: My, my. I finally get to meet the great racer, Jak!

Daxter: And...

Razer: And what?

Daxter: What about me?!

Razer: Oh yes, you're the loud-mouth storyteller from the bar. But Jak... Jak, Jak, Jak, your reputation precedes you. Oh, but I'm forgetting my manners. My name is Razer. Maybe you've heard of me? I work for Mizo. Eventually, everyone does.

Jak: I'm from out of town.

Razer: Yes, you are, aren't you? And you're showing my boys up on the track out there. (chuckles) Don't make me put on my goggles and show you how it's done! You wouldn't live long enough to see me cross the finish line.

Jak: I'm ready whenever you are.

Razer: Oh, I'm sure we'll match up soon enough. The race of the century, eh? Hm. In the meantime, watch your back. I've heard someone arranged a few surprises this time out. (chuckles)

A New Color Commentator

G.T. Blitz: Welcome back to the G.T. Blitz Show! Sadly, the network has decided in their infinitesimally small wisdom to add a co-host to my show (hmphs). I can't imagine anyone outshining yours truly, but alas, please give a lukewarm welcome to my new "color" commentator as it were, Mr. (ahem) Pecker.

Pecker: Thank you G.T., and hello to all you peoples out there watching. I'd like to thank the network for choosing me to save this anemic little show.

G.T. Blitz: (laughs) Yes, well, welcome aboard... Pecker!

Daxter: That's it! Who's his agent? Pecker always gets the sweet gigs in these adventures!

Pecker: My first network assignment has been to investigate the rumored "super bet" on this year's big championship race. Sources say a high level underworld crime connection is involved. But sadly my sources won't return calls, and are now missing, and are probably dead! But, Pecker is not so easily swayed. I will uncover the truth and report my findings right here on our show, G.T.

G.T. Blitz: Of course you will. And let me just say it's going to be so great working with you.

Pecker: You too, Blitz-man!

Pecker: Oops, sorry...

G.T. Blitz: Why you little bird shi–

Pecker: (yells)

Race for Prizes

G.T. Blitz: There you are, Jak. Getting some local color? (chuckles) You certainly need it, you're positively pale on screen. Listen, I just wanted to tell your group that you can earn cool gadgets performing odd jobs for the Commission and others.

Jak: What kind of jobs?

Daxter: What kind of gadgets?

G.T. Blitz: Good stuff! For instance, there are some dirt-forming robots that went berserk in the Kras Dirt Stadium. They need to be destroyed before someone gets hurt. Hunt them all down, and you'll be rewarded.

Jak: Sounds good.

Daxter: Sounds dangerous!

G.T. Blitz: It is. But, the prizes are good, and you'll need them. That is, if you want to continue upgrading your car to keep up with the Joneses. The job's waiting if you want it. But, be careful, we wouldn't want to hurt one of our star up-and-coming racers.

UR-86 Zeros in on Jak

Rayn: Jak, you're getting great points for the season. But, I heard a nasty rumor that someone's throwing big money around hiring top mercenary drivers to race. Whoever it is, they want to beat us badly.

Ashelin Praxis: I hear these new drivers are getting bonuses for kills, and I'm sure that they wouldn't think twice about cheating to win.

Daxter: Oh, great! That's all we need.

Ashelin Praxis: Uh-oh, here comes a rather large specimen now.

Razer: Well, well, if it isn't the rat and his mangy animal.

Daxter: Oh, you're a riot!

Razer: Have you met Mizo's newest racer? This is UR-86, the deadliest driver on the planet—behind me of course. Hmm. '86 holds some of the top records for kills in a single event. Even I have to watch out for this one.

Razer: Oh, don't be shy, this bucket of bolts loves living things—so he can make them dead. (laughs) Good luck out there.

UR-86: (vocalizes)

Red Cup Grand Prix Qualifier 2 (gameplay)

(At the start of the second Red Eco Grand Prix qualifier race.)

G.T. Blitz: It's another Red Cup Grand Prix qualifying event. This is a must win for anyone who wants to be a contender. Is this exciting or what?

Pecker: Another Red Cup Grand Prix qualifying event. Now this is a must win for anyone who wants to be a contender.

Sig Returns

G.T. Blitz: Hello, speed lovers. We're live once again for the biggest sport on the planet. It looks like the competition's really heating up, as are the piles of smoldering wrecks on the side of the road. (laughs) Stay tuned for all the fireworks!

Daxter: How does he get that sheen in his hair? I must know.

Ashelin Praxis: I guess we'll see some pros out there today.

Rayn: Oh, joy. That Blitz fellow gives me the creeps, and the smarmy blighter's even worse in person. If only he were–

G.T. Blitz: Hey people, did you catch my broadcast? (whistles) You've got some serious competition today. People have been betting big. They say that this championship's going to come down to you guys and Mizo's dream team. (laughs) Still, the odds makers say your team falls short.

Sig: That's because most fools haven't figured me into the mix!

Jak and Daxter: Sig!

G.T. Blitz: Is my camera out of focus? The great Sig has entered the competition. This is going to be better than I thought. But, if you'll excuse me, I've got some real interviews to do.

Sig: Yeah, you do that...

Sig: Sorry I'm late for the party, guys. I heard about Krew's little potion. That's why I never drink on the job. I say, never trust a dead man. Don't worry, I'll help you get that antidote.

Ashelin Praxis: Easy for you to say, your life's not on the line.

Sig: For my friends, it is.

Jak: Good to have you back, Sig.

Sig: Great to be back! Now let's see about this so-called "competition"!

The First Grand Prix

G.T. Blitz: Once again, we bring you all the racing action as close as it gets!

Pecker: Yes indeedy. The winner here will move one step closer to qualifying for the big championship race.

G.T. Blitz: But that step could be right off a cliff. UR-86 has never lost in this event before, and the crowd is screaming for another mechanical mashing here today.

G.T. Blitz: Look at '86's confidence, his poise, his game face is just rock solid.

Pecker: Yeah, well he's a robot. What'd you expect?

Daxter: We're dead.

Sig: Watch yourself out there, Jak. He can really light up a track, both with his speed and his weapons.

Jak: Let's melt this sucker.

Jak Beats UR-86

G.T. Blitz: That was a big win for the newcomer, my fine feathered friend. We're gonna have to pay more attention to this boy.

Pecker: I've done some digging, G-baby, and I've uncovered more information about the rumors of that big underworld bet. Someone is manipulating the sport!

G.T. Blitz: You know, (chuckles) I've been covering this sport for decades. Do you honestly think you can come onto my (beep) show and make me look like a (beep) fool?! Well, (beep) you! (beep)

Odds Are Bad

G.T. Blitz: Welcome back to the show! Today we have a special event where the racing rules have been changed to provide new challenges and new thrills.

G.T. Blitz: How do you see Jak and his band of misfit racers shaping up?

Pecker: Well G., I've seen Jak get out of some pretty tight scrapes.

G.T. Blitz: Come on! Do you really think Jak's got a chance? He'll soon be going up against the top pros—nasty competition. But, I'll give you the final word.

Pecker: Well, G.T.–...

G.T. Blitz: Oops sorry, that was more than one word. In my experienced opinion, as the competition gets tougher, I think Jak's gonna fold.

G.T. Blitz: That's studio debating 101, baby. Oh yeah! You just got schooled!

Pecker: Birds do not school, they flock. So flock off!

Keira Wants to Race

Keira: Daddy, I want to race. They need me out there. I can win it all!

Samos Hagai: Oh no, not this again! Keira, you're not racing, it's much too dangerous!

Keira: But daddy, I can do it! I can race better than any of those guys, you know I can!

Samos Hagai: Yes... I-I mean no, you can't. Well, I mean, yes, you can... but that's not the point. I won't have it! A woman's place is in the garage fixing cars!

Keira: You can't protect me forever! Some day I'll show you!

Samos Hagai: Not today you won't! No racing! That's final! I can't risk losing my little girl.

Keira: I'm not your little girl anymore! You'll see...

Jak: Hey. You okay?

Keira: Yeah, I'm fine. I'm always fine. Look, you boys have what it takes to win out there.

Daxter: Thanks, baby.

Keira: I meant the car. It's a beaut! Free-floating V-chassis, three twenty-six super headers, channel-lock universal weapons cage. Very nice. But to keep competitive, you'll have to modify your ride as often as possible. Maybe if you ask nicely, I'll install stuff.

Jak: Deal.

Keira: That's asking nice?

Jak: What? I mean, it would–it would be–...

Keira: Nicer...

Daxter: Will you do it already?!

Keira: I'm a little rusty with the wrench, but I'll see to it your vehicle's in tip-top shape, make repairs after races, and make sure yours is the best purring vehicle on the circuit. And Jak, we'll talk about "nice" later...

Kleiver Shows Up

Jak: Something about this whole setup doesn't seem right. We're missing something important.

Rayn: But at least we're winning races. That's good.

Daxter: Good?! Listen Rayn baby, we've been chased, attacked, shot at, poisoned, and blown up! How could it get any worse?!

Kleiver: Hello, ankle biters!

Daxter: It's worse.

Kleiver: That show pony Gee-Whizz Blitz told me I could find you here. Listen up, yabbers. You embarrassed me on the track before, but this time I aim to even the score.

Daxter: Dude, that was so last adventure! (Available in stores now.)

Kleiver: I've been waiting a long time to teach you short poppies a lesson. I'll see you on the track, nippers.

Kleiver Wants to Play

Kleiver: You and the offsider care for a little bush bash? Over the city and through the jungle, so to speak.

Daxter: You know, I was having a good day until you showed up.

Jak: We're always up for a little action.

Kleiver: Good. A little warm up for the big event, eh? Who knows, maybe we can run over a few greenies while we're at it.

Jak: After you.

Kleiver: You'll always be after me.

Jak: Who's paying you, Kleiver? You don't do anything for free.

The Team Ponders

G.T. Blitz: I love this sport. Last year alone, racing brought in more cash than Kras City's entire yearly budget. Now that's big. Believe it or not, it can get even bigger! I mean, with the right imagination. I'd like to see laws passed forcing the sport to be shown on multiple channels, maybe broadcast it in school for the kiddies.

Jak: Seems like everyone's got a stake in this thing.

Rayn: Well, we certainly do.

Daxter: There's a ton of money swirling around this sport!

Torn: And when there's money...

Ashelin Praxis: There's crime.

Jak: I think Krew's playing us! But, against who, I don't know.

We're Dying to Win

G.T. Blitz: Hello race fans! Welcome to another edition of the G.T. Blitz Show. What do you think, Pecker? Is this season great or what?

Pecker: Yes G.T., it's really been a–...

G.T. Blitz: Great! Well, we have two of the biggest racers in the sport today. So, Razer, tell me, how does it feel to compete in the most prestigious racing event on the planet, my show?

Razer: Yes, well, as you know, I'm a firm believer that our sport needs to evolve. We need more action, more excitement, more danger!

G.T. Blitz: Love it! Love it! So, tell me, Jak. How does it feel to know either you or Razer will be dead by season's end? You must be really motivated to keep racing under this kind of pressure.

Daxter: Let's just say we're dying to win.

Pecker: Some say the mysterious crime boss Mizo may be involved.

Jak: Mizo's name's coming up a lot for someone trying to stay out of the public eye.

G.T. Blitz: You heard it here folks! These two wheel jocks are on a collision course, and we'll be here to identify all the bodies.

Green Eco Cup Grand Prix Qualifier 2 (gameplay)

(At the start of the second Green Eco Grand Prix qualifier race.)
Pecker: Welcome to this Green Cup Grand Prix qualifying event. Everything is coming to a head this season, and this race puts all the eggs in one basket, and believe me, some of them are going to get cracked. (squawks)

Back in Haven City

G.T. Blitz: Hello race fans, we're coming to you live from not-so scenic Haven City as this sport goes on the road for the world circuit tour. Yes, we're global, baby! In today's race, a few veteran drivers will meet the upstarts for the first time, and the Blitz-meister has a feeling it won't be pretty. So, we'll stay behind the crash barrier and bring you all the action as it happens! Stay tuned!

Torn: It's nice to be back in Haven City, hey sweetheart?

Daxter: Torn, I'm touched.

Torn: I was talking to Ashelin.

Daxter: I knew that...

Daxter: And we used to think this town was tough! Kras City makes this place look like a kiddie park.

Jak: I still don't understand why Krew would go to all this trouble for a trophy.

Ashelin Praxis: I smell a rat.

Daxter: Hey, I showered this morning!

Ashelin Praxis: I mean, I think Krew must've been up to something.

Daxter: With soap!

Ashelin Praxis: He always had an angle.

Rayn: You're probably right. While we're in Haven City, I'll see what I can dig up in my father's old things.

Ashelin Praxis: Yeah... you do that.

Grease Monkey Daxter

Daxter: Now that I've finished working on this sweet ride, it'll really fly, thanks to my vehicular expertise.

Jak: Right, did you put on two coats of wax or just one?

Daxter: One... But that'll make it go much faster!

Kleiver: Howdy mates, just wanted to drop you a fly that there's an event swirling at the Kras Coliseum. Competitors from all over the world came to play... and my score? Beat 'em all!

Daxter: Whoopee for you!

Kleiver: I just didn't want you to miss out on all the fun. I need a little competition, and I'd love to see you squirm. Go ahead, give it a burl. I'll be the one laughing from the stands.

The Second Grand Prix

G.T. Blitz: Two of today's top contenders are joining me now: Kleiver, the muscle-bound god of track thunder; and the nimble and lightning-quick racer, Jak.

G.T. Blitz: So Jak, sources say there's a big bounty on you. Everyone wants you dead. Hah, everyone but me that is, you're great for the ratings!

Jak: The death threats and bounties don't bother us. We're not afraid to die.

Daxter: Woah! Freeze frame! I'd like to go on record right here that I'm firmly and officially against dying. In any way.

Kleiver: Yabbers, all of you! I'm gonna find you two on out on the track, and when I do, you'll wish you'd never wedged behind a wheel!

G.T. Blitz: You heard it here folks. The gauntlet's been thrown and the biggest race of the season is coming to you live as–...

Pecker: Jak and Daxter show us how they became heroes!

Jak Beats Kleiver

G.T. Blitz: And here's the lucky winner, ladies and gentlemen! Well-deserved, well-deserved indeed. You're showing promise out there, old boy. What's your secret?

Jak: Clean air.

G.T. Blitz: Love it! (laughs) Love it!

Daxter: And I'd like to give a shout out to all my golden boys.

G.T. Blitz: Yeah yeah, wouldn't we all. Tell me Jak, you just beat one of the top racers in a bid to qualify for the Grand Championship race. Your point totals are impressive. What makes you think people won't kill you for this?

Daxter: Woah woah, what? What?!

G.T. Blitz: Did I slur my words? Aren't you worried?

Jak: Tell you the truth, I'm probably dead already. But that doesn't mean I can't take a few scumbags with me.

G.T. Blitz: Well, you made the people cheer, and that's good for business. Very good indeed. Until next time, this is G.T. Blitz signing off.

Jak: You got a sweet gig going here.

G.T. Blitz: Oh, it's all for show. For the bigger powers that be (laughs). I'd be careful, though. I hear Mizo had a pretty sizable bet on this race... and lost.

Jak: I hope he was watching.

G.T. Blitz: Oh, I'm sure he was.

Krew's Diary

Krew (hologram): ...to get them. So, I rolled the dice–...

Rayn: I took the liberty of going back through Dad's things. I found his decoder for the will. There's more on the disc. I think it's his journal.

Jak: Play it.

Krew (hologram): Mizo and I both want the same things, and we'll stop at nothing to get them. So, I rolled the dice and made this bet with Mizo to avoid a costly gang war between us. The winner of the next Kras City Grand Championship race will win the other's dirty business. All I have to do is field a better racing team than him, win the big race, and Mizo and his nasty clan will slink off to whatever hole they crawled out of, eh?

Jak: No wonder they both want to win so badly.

Rayn: My father made a wager with the Mizo crime family? He's been linked to some of the worst crime in Kras City. I'm sure he's paying top dollar to field the best racers to beat us.

Jak: So we're up against the world's nastiest crime boss with the best mercenary racers money can buy... And we've been poisoned. I've had better weeks.

Rayn: You must believe me, Jak. I never knew my father was into all this. Hell, I never knew my father at all.

Jak: You're not alone in this. Don't worry, we'll win.

Can We Trust Mizo?

Rayn: Jak, you're looking good in the standings so far. But even if we win this whole damn thing, how do we know Mizo will keep his word and walk away?

Torn: We don't. But how do we know Krew will keep his?

Ashelin Praxis: Look honey, I don't care about Mizo, as long as we get the poison antidote. Your family business is your problem.

Sig: Listen, I've been around this crime scene for a long time. If there's one thing I've learned, it's that death is always in the equation. Mizo won't leave witnesses. Win or lose, he'll try to kill us all.

Rayn: I just don't think we should leave this bet to chance. My father wouldn't have...

Ashelin Praxis: It's not your choice. And I wouldn't start modeling you life by what your father would do. Jak will tell you where he ended up. Won't you, Jak?

Jak: Look, just keep racing and winning. I'll think of something.

Jak Confronts Razer

Daxter: Step aside boys, the speed twins are in the building! Looks like we're taking it to your best boys on the track, eh Razer?

Razer: Ah, welcome back to the Bloody Hook. If we keep meeting like this, people will start to talk, hmm?

Daxter: You ain't so tough! Although you do dress strangely well, and have a certain odd sexy style.

Jak: We found out about your boss' little bet with Krew, Razer. Mizo won't win, no matter how many of your goons he hires to race against us!

Razer: Oh yes, Mizo wanted me to tell you that he loves the competition and looks forward to the rest of the season. Of course, he's a far fairer soul than I.

Blue Eco Cup Grand Prix Qualifier 1 (gameplay)

(At the start of the first Blue Eco Cup Grand Prix qualifier race.)
G.T. Blitz: We're live at a Blue Cup Grand Prix qualifying event. This should prove to be a great race today! Have the kiddies stay home from school and watch!

Pecker: We're live at a Blue Cup Grand Prix qualifying event. This should prove to be a great race today!

The Third Grand Prix

Keira: I need a GB spanner, please.

Daxter: What's a spanner?

Keira: That one.

Daxter: That one?

Keira: No, that one!

Daxter: I knew that.

Jak: You sure know your way around cars, Keira.

Keira: I can handle tools. But that's not all I'm good at, Jak.

Razer: Oh look, the grease monkeys are busy putting their toy cars together—so I can take them apart.

Jak: This is a private party, Razer.

Razer: Of course. I just came by to tell you I'm officially coming out of retirement, just for you, Jak. Everyone's screaming for us to swap paint. And when it's over, this town won't mourn your passing, they'll only lament how much money they lost betting on a loser.

Blitz's Father Was a Racer

G.T. Blitz: Why are you here? Does the network think you're the future of broadcast?

Pecker: Perhaps. It's all in the attitude, the look, the way I...

Pecker: We're back for another exciting race folks, where survival is just as important as winning. Say Blitz, isn't this the same track your father won his first championship on?

G.T. Blitz: Why yes, that's true.

Pecker: People say he was quite a racer.

G.T. Blitz: He was. The best. Until he was killed on this very track a few years later. It's a cruel sport, eh? (chuckles) But enough about my old man, let's get back to all the racing action!

Pecker Has the Scoop

Daxter: What do you want, Pecker?

Pecker: I came here to tell you all to watch your tail feathers. Let's just say that in my position, I hear a lot of off the record interviews...

Jak: Start flapping your beak, Pecker!

Pecker: Okay, okay. It appears that the racing syndicate run by Mizo has been fixing racings for some time. You guys are the only wild card out there, and they don't like it.

Torn: Yeah, when you're poisoned you'll do crazy things.

Sig: That's off the record, squawker. Nobody knows about the poison, and we'd like to keep it that way.

Pecker: Oh, of course, you can trust me. I'll let you know when I have more info.

Blue Eco Cup Grand Prix Qualifier 2 (gameplay)

(At the start of the second Blue Eco Grand Prix qualifier race.)
G.T. Blitz: Welcome to another Blue Cup Grand Prix qualifier. Get ready to enjoy all the action!

Pecker: Welcome to another Blue Cup Grand Prix qualifier. Get ready to enjoy all the action!

Mizo Offers a Deal

Rayn: I'm out there with you boys this time.

Jak: I've got it handled. I can take Razer!

Rayn: This one's too important to leave to chance. Don't worry about me, I can hold my own.

G.T. Blitz: Yes folks, we're live as I deliver a secret recorded message dropped of at our station earlier this morning. That's right, it's from the mysterious crime lord Mizo himself!

Jak: Well, the rat's finally coming up from the sewers.

Mizo: Greetings fellow race lovers. Your perseverance this season has been... surprising. But Krew has sent you on a fool's errand. I'm prepared to forgive and forget, and spare each of your lives if you walk away now.

Jak: But we can't quit. We have no choice.

G.T. Blitz: Are you crazy? The world's deadliest crime lord is offering you a deal and you refuse?! What does Krew have on you guys?!

G.T. Blitz: This is amazing folks...

Jak: If you're listening Mizo, your days are numbered. We'll win, or we'll die trying.

Jak Beats Razer

Rayn: Jak, I just want to say thanks. I–...

Jak: No problem.

G.T. Blitz: And here he is, ladies and gentlemen, the man who beat the mighty Razer. How does it feel to still be breathing?

Jak: I just want to win the championship, then we'll talk.

G.T. Blitz: Why so truculent with the media, Jak? You're the next big star! The championship seems all but locked up. Of course, every star eventually falls.

Mountaintop Highway (gameplay)

(After 30 seconds into the race, or upon picking up a red or yellow eco weapon for the first time.)
Jak: I've got a problem.

(After one minute into the race, or 30 seconds after first picking up a weapon, or upon first attempting to fire a weapon.)
Jak: I can't shoot!

(After one minute and 15 seconds into the race, or 15 seconds after first attempting to fire a weapon, or upon attempting to fire a weapon for the second time, or 50 seconds after first picking up a weapon.)

Jak: I can't fire a weapon! This is bad. This is real bad.

Mizo: You know you should have your vehicle inspected before each race. Otherwise, someone might tamper with it.

(Upon attempting to fire a weapon for the first time.)
On-screen: Weapons jammed!

Jak's Car Was Sabotaged

Jak: Blitz, we need to talk.

Keira: We analyzed Jak's car after it was sabotaged. The explosives used–...

Pecker: Were the same type as those that killed your father!

G.T. Blitz: I don't know what you're talking about.

Jak: Don't you get it?! The very same people that want us dead also killed your father.

G.T. Blitz: So the syndicate killed my old man, I'm not surprised! He was arrogant and cocky anyway!

Ashelin Praxis: These are very bad people. If you know anything–...

G.T. Blitz: What I know is that the ratings this season are through the roof! And it's only going to get better as the season comes to a close.

Jak: So, that's it? That's all you care about?

G.T. Blitz: It's all I've got. Now, if you don't mind, I have a swarm of cameras waiting.

Yellow Cup Grand Prix Qualifier 1 (gameplay)

(At the start of the first Yellow Eco Grand Prix qualifier race.)
G.T. Blitz: This is G.T. Blitz, bringing you a Yellow Cup Grand Prix qualifier event! This is going to be fast and ferocious, so fasten your seat belts!

Jak's Dark Secret

Rayn: Thank you again Jak for your help. We wouldn't be here if it wasn't for you.

Daxter: Uh Rayn, um, about your dad, Krew, and all...

Jak: Rayn, there's something I need to tell you.

G.T. Blitz: Hello race fanatics, we're coming to you live with a breaking story! Yours truly has recovered documents that prove that Jak was the cause of Krew's death.

Rayn: What?!

G.T. Blitz: Jak left him to die in a terrible explosion. How heartless can you get?

Jak: It wasn't like that. Rayn, I had no choice.

Daxter: I told Jak he should fess up. I kept saying...

Rayn: You knew? You all knew, didn't you?!

G.T. Blitz: Oh-ho-ho-ho, could it get any more delicious? Well, we'll leave you two to work this out. Back to you Greaser and a commercial break!

G.T. Blitz: Sorry folks. But, that's show business. (laughs)

Rayn: Who are you?

Jak: Your father wasn't such a good guy. He killed a lot of people!

Rayn: And you think Mizo's any better?! If we lose this championship, the whole city will suffer! Ugh! You wouldn't understand. Leave me alone! I'll win without you if I must. I'm used to taking care of myself.

Blitz Bares All

Pecker: Hey! That's fowl!

G.T. Blitz: Huh, tastes pretty good to me. Want a bite?

Pecker: That could be my uncle, you know?!

G.T. Blitz: I had an uncle once. He kept telling my father to stop racing, to take care of the family instead of going to the track every day. Even before my father died, I was on my own. Jak knows what I'm talking about, right Jak?

Jak: Over these past few weeks, I've found out who my friends really are.

G.T. Blitz: Oh please, the b.s. meter is really pegged now. We'll see how your so-called friendships hold up when Mizo breaks the news that he's bringing in a surprise driver for the final race!

The Final Race

G.T. Blitz: Welcome everyone to the final race of the season! The winner here will take home all the marbles, and virtually run Kras City when it's all over. And the loser... Wait! This just in, there's been a later entry for the Mizo team. Sources say this mysterious wheel jockey is one of the best drivers in the world! So stay tuned for all the death and destruction!

Krew (hologram): Well, it's the final race, eh? It all comes down to this. I just hope I didn't miscalculate the poison's potency (chuckles). Win quickly and save yourselves! I want that trophy!

Daxter: I don't feel too good.

Ashelin Praxis: Me either.

Jak: Your father's agent better have those antidotes waiting at the finish line!

Sig: I've got your back, Jak.

Ashelin Praxis: And I've got yours.

Daxter: Hey! Who's got mine?

Keira: I do!

Jak: Keira?!

Samos Hagai: Keira, you're not going to race!

Keira: Daddy, I'm racing, and that's final!

Samos Hagai: Agh! Just like her mother!

Torn: Let's do this.

Jak: All for one...

Ashelin Praxis: And one right in the groin.

Rayn: Let's make Mizo pay!

Mizo's Identity

Pecker: (laughs) Yes! There you have it folks! The Kras City Grand Championship has been won in style by Jak and his racing team. What a finish! And, the mysterious driver turns out to be my co-host, G.T. Blitz!

Keira: You did it, Jak!

Daxter: Yeah, we did!

Jak: Rayn, what's going on?!

Rayn: Relax, this whole thing was designed to flush Mizo out. As for the poison, don't worry, I've got the antidotes right here.

Ashelin Praxis: How could you know that Mizo would be close?

Rayn: Father tried to eliminate Mizo for years, but he could never ID the man. Then we realized, there is no Mizo, or rather...

Mizo: Out of my way! You broke the rules!

Daxter: Blitz?!

Mizo: I'm Mizo! And losing the bet changes nothing! I'll crush your family and this whole city! And no one else will ever know.

Pecker: No one except for two hundred million viewers, that is.

Mizo: What?!

Pecker: Smile for the cameras, big boy! Every star has to fall, right Mizo?

Mizo: (yells) You will all die!

Daxter: After him, Jak!

Mizo boss fight (gameplay)

(Randomly during the chase.)

Daxter
  • We're almost out!
  • It's looking bad, Jak.
  • Keep your guns blazing!

Jak: That's what I call racing!

Rayn
  • You have to win, Jak!
  • Take him out, it's Blitz!
  • Win this, it's our only hope!
Mizo
  • Goodbye, Jak!
  • The hunt is on!
  • Time to die, Jak.
  • To your death, Jak!
  • You can't beat me, Jak!
  • You'll never catch me in time!
  • Is the poison getting you down?! (laughs)
  • I've got a missile with your name on it, Jak.

(If you die.)

Mizo
  • It's over!
  • You lost, Jak!
  • Kras City is mine!

(Upon failing the mission.)
On-screen: Mission Failed

Mizo's End

Mizo: She'll betray you, you know...

Jak: Are you still talking?

Mizo: Rayn, she'll become even worse than me.

Jak: Right, like how you killed your own father?

Mizo: And why not?! He left us for his sick love of racing. And when he did, we vowed to own the whole damn sport! All of it! Every last part!

Mizo: You have a habit of leaving people to die, don't you?

Jak: You get used to it.

Photo Finish

Daxter: And just then, I pushed Jak to safety, as the car exploded in a fiery inferno!

Sig: Wow! Great story, Dax.

Torn: Great racing everyone.

Samos Hagai: Wonderful driving!

Jak: Thanks.

Samos Hagai: I was talking to my daughter.

Rayn: Well, everyone, I must be on my way. Thank you all for helping me take out my father's enemies. This town will be a better place for it. And thank you, Jak, for showing me the light.

Jak: Take care.

Sig: Be better than your father.

Daxter: You know, that old girl ain't so bad. Hey, she forgot Krew's diary.

Krew (hologram): Hello, Rayn dear... so it's our little secret, eh? Just pour into your glass first three seconds and no more, and yours will have no poison. The rest will get a full dose. (laughs) Then we'll take down that miserable Mizo and be the top crime family in Kras City! I only wish I could be there to give you a big hug! Like father, like daughter, eh?

Jak: Oh my god.

Rayn: Call a meeting. I want every crime boss present. That's right, I'm running this town now. Father was too soft. No, don't eliminate the racers, they were my friends; although probably not any longer. Ah well. It's just business.

Torn: Who would've thunk?

Ashelin Praxis: Well, if you had all been thinking with your... heads.

Daxter: Yeah, Jak! The important thing is we won—and we're alive!

Sig: And we brought down that scumbag Mizo!

Daxter: And we rocked the racing circuit, right Jak? I said, right Jak?!

Daxter: Hey! Will you kiss her already? Sheesh!

Daxter: Oh yeah... that's what I call a photo finish!

Red Eco Cup (gameplay)

(Each race event selected will be preceded by a short dialogue explaining the track and event type.)

Spargus City

Circuit race

Keira: This is a racing challenge Jak, but this sport's called combat racing for a reason. Everyone on the track will have weapons, and they won't be afraid to use them. You'll be up against some pretty tough drivers, so watch yourself. The object is to complete the set number of laps faster than everyone else, but also do it in one piece. Just keep your car on the track, be a hard target to hit, pick your battles wisely, and get to the finish line as fast as you can. Go get 'em, Jak!

Freeze rally

Keira: This is a freeze rally, Jak. Racing fast isn't the most important thing in this trial; you also have to hit the time freezers to stop the clock and get the lowest time. Running into each freezer will halt the clock for a set amount of seconds. The more you freeze the clock, the lower your overall time will be. Some freezers are worth more time than others, so pick your path wisely, beat the lowest times to win. Good luck!

Death race

Rayn: This is a death race, it's all about getting the kills. Keep moving around the track to get higher scores per kill. The more drones you can take out, the happier I'll be. Just remember to avoid being a target yourself. Take a hit and you'll lose valuable time.

Precursor Temple

Circuit race

Keira: The temple track has plenty of opportunity for the veteran drivers and lots of death for the novices. Keep plenty of speed through the turns, and watch for temple structures you can get air off of. Make me proud, Jak!

Loading Docks

Death race

Keira: This is a death race Jak, and it's one of the crowd's favorite events. The object of this challenge isn't just to race, but also to take out as many other cars as you can before time runs out. You get points for each vehicle kill. No, it's not pretty, but you got to do this to qualify for later events. Just keep moving, and keep shooting. Remember, you'll earn higher points in each lap. On your second lap you'll get double points per kill. And on your third, triple points! So it's best to race fast and get to the higher laps as early as you can!

Turbo dash

Keira: This race is through the docks. It's a rough part of town so watch your six. There are lots of obstacles, and plenty of places to splash, so keep sharp. Use turbos where you have breathing room, and remember to keep away from the water. Ready to race, Jak?

Dirt Stadium

Deathmatch

Keira: This is a deathmatch, Jak, it's combat to the death between you and other drivers in an arena. There's no mercy here, no place to hide; it's just head-to-head combat and survival of the fittest. The driver with the most kills at the end wins the match. There are no points for second place. Good luck!

Sport hunt

Rayn: This is an important challenge Jak. Father always loved this one. Collect as many points as you can, but watch out for the other racers. They'll find ways to steal points right out from under you! Show no mercy I say.

Seaport Strip

Circuit race

Keira: This is a Kras City street track, it's fast and tight here. Watch out for hard turns and dead ends. Use your red eco weapons to lay a few surprises on the track. Keep moving hard and keep the competition down, or you'll be roadkill. Take it to the streets, Jak!

Mar Coliseum

Deathmatch

Keira: Welcome to the coliseum! This event is going to separate the men from the boys, and the killer girls from the men! Don't be shy, or you'll never win!

Clifftop Battlefield

Artifact race

Keira: This is an artifact race, Jak. You'll need to collect as many artifacts as you can, and the one with the highest count wins. When an artifact appears, get there first and it's yours. Of course, there'll lots of competitors out there, so you'll have to be the fastest and the smartest if you want to win, but I know you can do it!

Forbidden Jungle

Freeze rally

Samos Hagai: This is a jungle track, my boy! Ah, the greenery takes me back. Use the eco well here, or you won't see the next sunrise. You'll pass under a large canopy of trees here, and through some ancient ruins. Drive fast, or you'll be ruined yourself!

Sewer Raceway

Circuit race

G.T. Blitz: I love this track! It was designed by a real masochist. Plenty of blind turns, tight spots, and head-to-head dead corridors. It's what we call in the business a ratings-rich environment. The people watch this sport to see the crashes, so get out there and fulfill their dreams.

Icebound Citadel

Death race

G.T. Blitz: How about a wonderful little death race through the lovely and scenic Marauder fortress? It's a great place for big power slides and even bigger fireballs, so lay those mines wisely. Have fun killing the competition!

Circuit race

Samos Hagai: This is a cold track, Jak. The poor plants can't get a break here, but you'd better brake a lot, or you'll slide out on the ice! Remember to pick your lines carefully on those turns. Oh, and by the way, the rocks say hi.

Mountaintop Highway

Turbo dash

Keira: The marauder area is a real neck-breaker. Lots of terrain shifts and challenging turn approaches. Look for a clean line through the rolling tundra and make jumps where you can cut corners. Have fun!

Frozen Speedway

Death race

G.T. Blitz: This is one of the crowd's favorite events! This is all about kills, kills, and, did I mention kills? The crash count is what makes this the most watched event on the planet. Hit those targets and see how many points you can rack up. And, enjoy it while you can; death is only a button click away, like when they change the channel.

Timberline Track

Rush hour

Sig: Hello, cherries! You're about to experience my kind of driving: full contact racing! This is the rush hour challenge, and the object of this little Sunday drive is to ram as many other vehicles as you can! That's right, smash and crash anything that moves on the track! They'll be coming at you head-on, so be ready to jive while you drive. The more cars you bust up, the better your points. Go get 'em, chili pepper!

Grand Prix

(Before the first race.)
Keira: This is the Red Cup Grand Prix. In this challenge you'll have to compete in three events in a row and finish with the highest total score to win it all. Don't panic if you fall behind in the earlier rounds, it's the final score that counts. Look out for UR-86 on the track, he'll be your toughest competition today.

(At the start of the first race.)
G.T. Blitz: This is the Red Cup Grand Prix! There are lots of confident racers on the track, but the odds are good that UR-86 will bring it all home!

(After the first race.)
G.T. Blitz: And that's the end of the first round. This Red Cup Grand Prix is shaping up to be quite a competition.

(At the start of the second race.)

G.T. Blitz
  • Are you ready for some action? UR-86 sure is, and this second round of Grand Prix is ready to roll!
  • Here we are for the second round of the Red Cup Grand Prix! I think we'll see UR-86 make his move in this race.

(After the second race.)

G.T. Blitz
  • Another great finish! And another round of the Red Cup Grand Prix over!
  • And Jak has stunned UR-86 with an amazing win! The crowd is going wild! And UR-86 is last year's model. Where's the garbage bin?

(At the start of the third race.)

Pecker: Here we go, ladies and gentlebirds. This is a big Grand Prix event against the well-oiled race machine, UR-86. Can Jak compete with the calculating efficiency of this speed bot? We will see at the finish line.

G.T. Blitz: Here we go for the final round of the Red Cup Grand Prix! Will UR-86 make the living wish they were dead? (laughs)

(After the third race.)
G.T. Blitz: And it's over! UR-86 loses! Once again, Jak proves he's more than the competition expected, with another surprising and strong win! ...How exciting.

Green Eco Cup (gameplay)

Beachfront Drive

Circuit race

Keira: Back in the Wasteland, Jak! This track goes between Spargus City and the canyon. Use any jumps to your advantage. Remember, getting air means getting speed boosts. Watch out for rocks and other obstacles. If you want to win this race, you need to keep your car clean and screaming!

Desert Arena

Deatmatch

Sig: This is another frag-fest, so keep your wheels rolling and your guns blazing! Don't let the cheap cherries get into position, and keep 'em guessing. Swoop in from above to rock their world! (laughs) I love this sport!

Canyon Run

Rush hour

G.T. Blitz: Hello, newbie. This is one of the most feared tracks. The turns are sharp, the blind corners are death, and the chances for mayhem are a ratings bonanza! Too bad, it means you're gonna have to take the pain. But if you can't get through this event, there's no tomorrow.

Freeze rally

Samos Hagai: This is a special time challenge, Jak. Get the lowest time you can, and you'll be a hero again! Make me proud.

Badland Sanctuary

Circuit race

Kleiver: Spargus City is where I learned to fight, and this track will take all the fighting you've got, if you want to survive. Cut the corners tight and keep your car screaming, and you might just have a shot at last place. (laughs)

Wasteland Isle

Deathmatch

Rayn: This is a Deathmatch, Jak. I know it's a terrible sport, but take no prisoners, I'm certain the other side won't. If there's anything my father ever taught me, it's survival of the fittest. Kill the most kills for our team and win.

Kras City

Turbo dash

Keira: In this event you want to collect the power cell, then turbo to charge it up. When the cell is fully charged, you'll get points and the cell will be fired off at the opponent in front of you. You also get a mine in your red weapon slot to protect you from players coming from behind. The more power cells you collect and charge up, the more points you'll get. You'll get more points in later laps, so go get 'em big boy!

Death race

Samos Hagai: This is another event on the mean streets of Kras City. Not a very eco-friendly city if you ask me... Still, we need a win here to advance. So tear it up my boy, and show 'em how it's done!

Waterfront Loop

Freeze rally

Ashelin Praxis: This is a time challenge, and I know you can milk a ton of speed out of your ride. So get out there and rock and roll. The faster times are all that people remember. There are no points for slowpokes.

Dethdrome

Death race

Samos Hagai: This is a tough track, Jak. A wise man once said, "If one waits to see every target before they fire, then it's already too late!" Remember your instincts Jak, and keep your head about you! Use the eco on the track whenever you can, or you're wasting it! It's there for a reason and you'll need every bit.

Dirt Stadium

Artifact race

Rayn: Keep sharp, Jak! We need an arena win here. Play by the rules and rock the competition, or we're in trouble. My father's counting on you, I'm counting on you, your friends are counting on you. Good luck!

Western Tour

Circuit race

Keira: Here's another long race, Jak. Remember that speed equals clean lines and smart driving. So keep your racer in smart slides and try not to miss any powerups. Every little bit helps on the long haul.

Forbidden Jungle

Circuit race

Ashelin Praxis: Another race through the bush. The jungle here can get tight so watch your lines. Don't forget to use a weapon when you have it, if you hesitate you'll miss chances; you use it or lose it I say. Show me how it's done.

Death race

Kleiver: This race is about killing more than driving, my kind of competition. Take out as many drivers as you can for the top spot, show no mercy, and the crowd will love you.

Clifftop Battlefield

Sport hunt

Keira: This is a hunt, Jak. The object of this event is to take out as many nasty creatures as you can. The racer with the highest kills at the end wins. Go get 'em!

City Outskirts

Circuit race

Keira: This is a cross-track race, Jak. You'll be touring through Haven City and the jungle on this one. The added complexity will require new strategies to keep ahead of the competition. Great speed will help, but then so will weapons.

Haven City

Circuit race

Ashelin Praxis: Welcome back to Haven City. You remember the place, right? This city's seen its share of fighting but the streets are going to get even bloodier when you mix it up today. Stay sharp, and watch for laggers, they get you from behind before you know what hit you.

Frozen Speedway

Circuit race

G.T. Blitz: Welcome to another race, newbie! This track has had some of the best highlights and mondo crashes my show has ever seen. We all love it, love it! But you won't. Get out there and make the people happy.

Grand Prix

(Before the first race.)
Keira: Here we go with the Green Cup Grand Prix! That infamous bad boy Kleiver will be out there looking for you, so watch your back, and keep those defensive weapons handy. This is a three-race challenge, so stay close to the leaders and keep consistent.

(At the start of the first race.)
G.T. Blitz: A Green Cup Grand Prix is about to begin. Watch as the newbie drivers get taken to school by the speed veterans today!

(After the first race.)
G.T. Blitz: And the first round is over. Kleiver looks a little shaken out there, but not stirred!

(At the start of the second race.)
Pecker: A Green Cup Grand Prix is about to begin! Watch as the newer drivers mix it up with the speed veterans in this tough event!

(After the second race.)
G.T. Blitz: The second round is over! We've got some real competition brewing here! ...Oh joy.

(At the start of the third race.)
Pecker: This is going to be a real test of Jak's driving ability, as he faces down the tough, tenacious, and, diaper-wetting bad boy Kleiver.

(Upon crossing the finish line in the third race and attaining first place in the Grand Prix's total event score.)
G.T. Blitz: Wow, Jak has beaten Kleiver! What a stunning upset! This is going to shake the sport to its core. What a surprising turn of events!

(Upon crossing the finish line in the third race and attaining anything but first place in the Grand Prix's total event score.)
Pecker: Oh my frumpy feathers! Jak has lost! How horrible, how tragic, how... much did I lose on my bets?

Blue Eco Cup (gameplay)

Canyon Run

Circuit race

Keira: This is a brawl track, Jak. Keep your head down and your targets in front of you, or you'll be toast. I've seen some pretty nasty battles here, so get the big weapons and make 'em pay.

Desert Arena

Artifact race

Kleiver: Welcome back to the Wasteland, mates. This is where the tough get tougher, and the weak get dead! (laughs) Spargus was never your town, but then, it'll be a good place to die.

Beachfront Drive

Rush hour

Kleiver: This event is a real screamer. The one who's got the brass to keep the hammer down will walk away with the win, and the women (chuckles). Try to match my time records here, and we'll see what you've got.

Northern Tour

Circuit race

Kleiver: The Wasteland desert is no place for a city boy. Over the dunes and through some death to granny's house we go, right? (chuckles) If you turn your back on this track it'll bite you where the shade is. Have a go at it, and we'll see if you're man enough to race against me.

Badland Sanctuary

Death race

Keira: This is a Death Race through Spargus City and the temple. Remember that this is all about taking out the drones—the more the merrier. Remember to take advantage of your weapons whenever you can; use 'em or lose 'em.

Spargus City

Turbo dash

Keira: This is a race through the streets of Spargus City. Watch for jumps to get added boosts, and keep an eye out for shortcuts. There'll be lots of obstacles on this track, so stay sharp and avoid costly collisions. Go waste 'em Jak!

Waterfront Loop

Death race

Pecker: If you like action, here's a great Death Race along the Waterfront Loop. When it comes to this competition, more is better! So keep collecting weapons and keep your trigger talon tapping! Nice alliteration, yes? Good luck!

Seaport Strip

Turbo dash

Kleiver: Ready to rumble with the big boys? This is a snatch and run, poppies; survival of the hungriest. Collect all you can, or you'll be the runt of the litter. And it ain't no fun at the bottom of the pile, especially with me on top!

Death race

Kleiver: This race is about killing more than driving, my kind of competition. Take out as many drivers as you can for the top spot, show no mercy, and the crowd will love you.

Dirt Stadium

Capture

Keira: This is a capture the power cell event, Jak. Get the power cell and bring it back to your base for a score. The more cells you bring back, the higher your score will be. But don't forget, you've got to stop the other guys from doing the same. The team with the highest score wins!

Loading Docks

Circuit race

G.T. Blitz: My old man thought this track was one of the toughest. And if he thought so, it is. My guess is it'll break you before the first lap, so here's a little advice to make the crowd get their money's worth. Always, always slide through the turns, or you'll wind up in a pile of metal on the side of the road. Now, get out there and make the crowd scream!

Dethdrome

Rush hour

Keira: This is a speed track, Jak. Survival of the fastest, so keep pushing hard and get all the turbos you can. Don't let up, or you'll be in the back of the pack.

Eastern Tour

Circuit race

Keira: All right Jak, this is a big one. The Eastern Tour is a long and linear race, packed full of turns and surprises. This grueling event will lash out and bite anyone who doesn't stay sharp and work the turns. If you get behind early, just keep cool and make it up slowly. You can do this!

Clifftop battlefield

Deathmatch

Keira: This cliff's terrain is full of surprises. There are lots of nooks and crannies to find here, and faster ways to move through the area. Be careful near the drop-off side of the cliff; pick a wrong place to jump, and your racing days will be over! Remember, open terrain means lots of opportunities to acquire and take out targets. So stay on top of your weapons at all times. Good luck!

Waterworks Circuit

Freeze rally

Ashelin Praxis: Nice to be back in Haven City, right? This challenge is all about speed, so keep the engine screaming and your eyes on the road.

Icebound Citadel

Freeze rally

Sig: I need to see some speed on this challenge, cherries. This puppy is all about the lap times, so keep 'em low, and the crowd screams high. Just like old times, huh?

Mountaintop Highway

Freeze rally

Keira: This is a tricky ice track. The traction can get a bit loose out there, so watch out. Stay frosty or this track will really bite you. Watch your lines and use turbos to clean up a bad turn entry. Okay Jak, go ice the competition!

Ice Pit

Deathmatch

Ashelin Praxis: I love a racer with a big gun, so if you've got it, use it. This fight is all about the frags, so keep moving and find your targets, and don't be one yourself. If you got a clear shot, take it, but wait for the perfect moment to strike. Go get 'em, big gun.

Grand Prix

(Before the first race.)
Keira: All right Jak, are you ready for the Blue Cup Grand Prix? Be careful, Razer is known for his fast moves and cheating style. Don't be surprised if he tries to pull a few tricks out there you haven't seen.

(At the start of the first race.)
G.T. Blitz: Here we go race fans, this is a Grand Prix event with everything on the line.

(After the first race.)
G.T. Blitz: Yes! And the first round is complete!

(At the start of the second race.)
G.T. Blitz: Get ready for another exciting round of Grand Prix action!

(After the second race.)
G.T. Blitz: Another round of the Grand Prix is in the books, and the book makers are losing money.

(At the start of the third race.)
G.T. Blitz: This is the last round of the Grand Prix event. Razer seems a bit dull... if he loses here, I'm sure his boss will be very unhappy.

(After the third race.)
G.T. Blitz: Oh my! Jak has beaten Razer! That's going to ruin someone's day! My guess? It's Razer.

Yellow Eco Cup (gameplay)

Precursor Temple

Death race

Ashelin Praxis: These Death Races sure do wonders for a girl's aim. This little rumble is through the Precursor Temple, and I bet it's more action than those old monuments have seen for some time. Let's give 'em a show.

Turbo dash

G.T. Blitz: Here's another Turbo Dash high-speed event through the Precursor Temple. No time to watch the ancient scenery, you'd better ride that turbo till you go blind or you'll never win here!

Spargus City

Rush hour

Ashelin Praxis: You ready for a little Rush Hour in Spargus City? This race will test your reflexes big time, as you go head to head with loads of traffic that won't flinch in the game of chicken. Let's see if you've got the brass to open it up here.

Beachfront Drive

Freeze rally

Keira: This is another cross-track event. These longer events require more concentration, so stay focused, and shoot for low lap times, each one adds up. And if you can concentrate on the long haul, you'll be in a good position on the final lap. This race is a marathon, not a sprint.

Wasteland Isle

Capture

Keira: This is another arena event. Don't forget that there are plenty of times when a target is a sitting duck, and other times when the other guy has the advantage. Know the difference, and pick your battles wisely, that way you'll always have the upper hand.

Seaport Strip

Rush hour

Keira: Watch out, Jak! This event has lots of traffic out there, so be careful. The extra vehicles on the road will make the track much more dangerous. Watch those corners, and be careful when you're going head-to-head, any collisions you have will rob you of valuable time.

Mar Coliseum

Artifact race

Ashelin Praxis: This battle will go to the one who keeps their head on straight. Think with your head first, your weapons second. When it gets crowded hit those turbos to blast clear. Make yourself a hard target to hit, and you'll come out ahead.

Kras City

Rush hour

Sig: Hey buddy! This is a Kras City Rush Hour event, which means there will be plenty of traffic on the track, and lots of opportunities to mix it up. Stay sharp, and bob and weave, keep your lines nice and tight around corners, and look out for slower vehicles.

Dethdrome

Turbo dash

Pecker: This is a serious Turbo Dash event on the Dethdrome track. Don't be afraid to really open it up here. When it comes to racing, the early bird gets the worm, yes?

Waterfront Loop

Circuit race

Keira: This is another tough race, Jak. Just remember to turbo when you can and keep your racer pointed down track. If the race gets tight then go to guns, there are no points for the slow drivers.

Waterworks Circuit

Circuit race

G.T. Blitz: So, you think you've got the brass to roll on these lanes? It can get very tight on this track, so watch your wheels. Power slides are the only way to keep your speed through the turns, and we all love speed, it's the lifeblood of this sport! So let's see how much you've got newbie.

Death race

Ashelin Praxis: I like my races like I like my men: I start from the bottom and work up. This event through the waterworks goes from the sewers below to the Haven streets above, and it will test every ounce of your skill and stamina. Go get 'em, tiger.

Sewer Raceway

Freeze rally

Ashelin Praxis: Here's another Freeze Rally to get you hot and bothered. If you want to master this course, memorize the placements of clock freezers around all the blind corners. Those extra time stops will really drop your overall time.

Clifftop Battlefield

Capture

Keira: What we have here is an exciting capture the power cell challenge. This event is all about teamwork, so watch your wheel man and keep them covered. The team that works together, wins together.

Atoll Arena

Deathmatch

Keira: The Atoll Arena has plenty of places to hide between cliffs, so keep moving and be a hard target. Don't get stuck in the water or you'll be a sitting duck. In the open areas, hit your targets hard and then get to cover.

Mountaintop Highway

Circuit race

Kleiver: Another dance in the cold, eh? Stay frosty, or you'll wind up in the drink. This marauder track is full of surprises, so keep your eyes peeled and your trigger finger itchy. Shoot first, and then shoot the person asking questions later (chuckles).

Death race

Ashelin Praxis: Let's try a nice little Death Race up and over the Mountaintop Highway. Phew, all those ups and downs are enough to make a girl sweat. And you'll be sweating if you don't win this event. Show 'em how it's done, Jak.

Southern Tour

Circuit race

Keira: This is the snow track, and it's a real test. There'll be lots of terrain changes here so be careful and stay sharp. Remember to keep high in the banks or you'll drop into the icy water below. If you don't use weapons, it'll be a cold day in hell before you win; use 'em or lose 'em, Jak!

Grand Prix

(Before the first race.)
Keira: This is it Jak! The Yellow Cup Grand Prix! The winner of this race will be the Kras City grand champion, and take home all the marbles! Rumor has it there's a mystery racer in this final competition. Mizo must be pulling another one of his dirty tricks, so be careful, and get ready for anything! We're counting on you, Jak!

(At the start of the first race.)
Pecker: This is the final round of the Kras City Grand Championship! It all comes down to this, what excitement, what drama, what– Oh, I think I wet my nest!

(After the first race.)
Pecker: And the first round is over! What a competitive race!

(At the start of the second race.)
Pecker: And we're ready for the second round of this final Grand Prix! Oh I tell you, I cannot watch. The point standings are too close to call. Barely an egg shell separates them!

(After the second race.)
Pecker: And the drivers cross the finish line to complete the second round! This Grand Prix is shaping up to be a real talon-biter.

(At the start of the third race.)
Pecker: This is the last Grand Prix event! The winner here will walk away with the Kras City Grand Championship trophy! Grand this, grand that, all these grands my feathers are molting!

(After the third race.)
Pecker: Yes! Thank the great egg it is over! It's over! Jak has won the Kras City Grand Championship! Wow! What an amazing finish! My beak is aching from all the screaming!

Notes
  • The following cutscene sections lack headers to avoid repeating cutscene header titles. However, they can still be anchor linked by suffixing the scene name with "(commentary)" (e.g. § Game Intro (commentary).)
  • Minor verbal mistakes, stuttering, interjections such as "uh" and "um", etc. are omitted from the transcription, though grammatical mistakes, onomatopoeias, etc. are kept.
  • The names of the developers aren't always clear, and some are presumed based on identifying the voice with other video footage. Otherwise, the developer's role (such as "Animator", "Programmer", "Writer", etc.) will be used. If the role is unknown, "Developer" will be used instead.
  • Broken-up paragraphs without a preceding name were delivered by the last indicated name, and were broken up for readability.
Game Intro

Eric Baldwin: Hi this is Eric Baldwin, and I animated a portion of the intro we're seeing right now. The original intro was going to start off within the bar, and kind of circle around some of the patrons of the bar and then focus in on Daxter, but we decided it would be a little bit more interesting to see the city that we're about to start racing around in, and then come in through the exterior.

Dan Arey: Hi I'm Dan Arey, creative director at Naughty Dog. Here we go with Daxter, who always is telling his stories. This has sort of become... kind of we accidentally fell into this accidentally while taping Max in New York one time where he started talking and joking around and we just, his storytelling ability was just something that seems to be perfect for Daxter, so. Here he is sort of starting the whole story of the entire experience of where he's been in the last few weeks in this dangerous city, Kras City. And he has always, as usual, has no idea how much trouble he's already in. Now the interesting thing about this sequence now that you've seen this is this is actually originally supposed to sort of surprise the player, the viewer into thinking that they're listening to Daxter tell a story about something that happened in the past and you think you're going into a flashback here and seeing what happened in the past. But as you see as this scene develops, you'll realize it's actually concurrent, and Jak's actually rushing to save Daxter because now he realizes that they're in trouble.

Josh Scherr: This is Josh Scherr, I'm the lead cinematic animator for Naughty Dog and this is the most technically challenging movie that we've ever done here at Naughty Dog. One of our animators, Eric, hit upon the bright idea of doing car capture, so we were actually able to drive the cars in the game in our actual levels without having to animate them ourselves. Made a lot of the scenes much easier to do.

Eric Baldwin: This was our grand introduction to the character Razer, which I think was a nice departure for villains, and you know, in video games or animation he was a little bit more eccentric and flamboyant.

Taylor Kurosaki: Hey everybody, it's Taylor Kurosaki at Naughty Dog. I am the dialogue editor as well as video editor. The first thing that I started off with was trying, and this is how I normally work, is try to get some music that really inspires me to cut something that I really think has the right energy and the right tempo. And in this case, I'm a big fan of the band Queens of the Stone Age and just kinda slugged in this song you're hearing now. And I just started cutting with it, you know using all of these really cool angles that Josh and Eric were giving to me, and wanted to put something that was fun, high energy, aggressive, and to me that Queens of the Stone Age music really set the tone nicely. You know, these guys are like these burly thugs, and so that to me was what inspired me to start off with this music, first of all. Initially it was just going to be a placeholder until we found something that was equally as good or have someone score something, but really in the end we decided that nothing was going to be better than these two songs in and of themselves so we stuck with it. But this was a really fun thing for me to do, normally, again, I'm just cutting trailers for the games and things of that nature, and it was just great to have an opportunity to cut something right here at the beginning of the game.

Josh Scherr: Now in the previous Jak games, all of our cinematics were done in real time on the fly on the Playstation 2 using our code. Now in Jak X, it still is, everything is still generated in real time and everything is still done using our code, the difference is that we are actually taking screenshots of each individual frame and then assembling them all into one MPEG movie. The reason we're doing this is simply because there's not enough memory in the Playstation 2 to go back and forth between the levels like we're doing in this particular movie.

Poison Toast

Dan Arey: So this scene sets the stage for the main story of the game which is, of course, why Jak, Daxter, and the rest of the gang have been coursed into racing for Krew. Now this is, of course, also our introduction to Krew's daughter, Rayn, who as you can see right here must have gotten her looks from the mom's side of the family. We'd actually wrestled a little bit with her character design for a while, we were thinking about making her a little bit more, shall we say, Rubenesque, but, the Naughty Dog female character design standard went out in the end. Now this scene is also interesting because this is really the first scene where we took advantage of the fact that we were essentially screenshot capturing all the scenes instead of playing them back in real time. And this enabled us to do a hologram effect that pretty much would have been impossible to do, or at least not look nearly as cool in real time on the Playstation 2. So essentially this scene is composited much like a film special effect would be composited. What we had to do was create two separate scenes. One scene that had all the characters except Krew in it, and then another scene that had just Krew in it against a purple background. And what we were able to do was extract Krew from the purple background, and then superimpose him over the scene you see here.

Now obviously all of these guys do not want to be working for Krew, because most of them worked for Krew in Jak II and didn't find him to be a particularly savory fellow. But as Krew says right here, he's put poison in all of your drinks. One of the things that we were sort of debating at the very beginning of the project was how exactly were we going to get Krew to course everybody into working for them. And we came up with a bunch of different ideas and ultimately the reason, I think, we went with poison is because rather than something impersonal, such as like say, I put a bomb somewhere, or I have secret information on you, and things like that, poison is not only deadly but it's also much more direct, much more personal to each of these characters.

So as you can see, everybody's getting pissed off at Rayn and we set up the "who can we really trust in this game" sort of dynamic. Now of course, from a animation standpoint this scene was also very challenging because well, when you get a scene what you're always hoping is that one, it doesn't have too many characters in it, and two, there's not too much interaction between many objects in the scene. This scene, of course, has many characters in it, and has everybody picking up wine glasses, putting down wine glasses, sitting in chairs, standing up in chars and things like that, so it was a very challenging scene but quite a lot of fun to work on.

The First Race

Eric Baldwin: This is Jason Martinsen's scene, and my job sometimes is to help these guys out with their staging, and a lot of time at Naughty Dog the animators choose their own way they want to approach the scene. In this case I told Jason, "Look this is the first time that these guys are gonna be racing so we need to have more energy, they need to look like that they're actually nervous." A lot of times we call these scenes bouncing heads or flapping gums, and in this case, Daxter particularly, since he doesn't really have anything going on, I told Jason, "Why don't you have him look up medical files?" and the direction I gave him was, he was literally looking up a some sort of an aerial disease, that way you can kind of play it off as to poison or whatever and a lot of times subtle clues like that will give the animators an impression of what the character's going after. It doesn't necessarily have to be exactly what is going on in the character's mind, but something similar would be ideal. So, that I think helped Jason out in terms of what the characters could be doing, otherwise, because of the hitting our thirty seconds a week insanity of trying to maintain these animations, a lot of times the characters are rooted to the ground, and anytime we can get the characters to move around it just helps us out with getting more life in the scene. And here's an example of the G.T. cam, and incidentally this was not G.T.'s original design, the original design was almost pre-Jak 1 era, so we had to kind of change it based on not fitting in. So, that's my cut.

Win or Die

Animator: This scene was a lot of fun to do as well, there are a lot of characters in this scene which made it really tough to do to kind of keep track of how and where all the characters are. You know, how the cameras are going to move around the scene and, you know, and keep everything in context. And above that, also, there was the playing between Ashelin and Rayn. Obviously, Ashelin hates Rayn's guts and she can care less about her, so it was interesting to play that as well. Plus with another moment with Daxter freaking out which is always a lot of fun to animate as well.

Razer's Threat

Eric Baldwin: Hi, this is Eric again. This scene I look back on as one of my more favorite scenes to work on just because of the performance between Jak and Razer. Even though Jak doesn't have much speaking part it's, you know, the tension that's being built up. And the performance we got from Razer was good so that is always better to animate to. So, I got to try to just really show his personality through his menacing behavior but he's also trying to sound like he's, you know, somewhat friendly even though it's very thinly veiled. He kind of breaks it right here. But again, it was just really a scene to kind of show his personality and these two characters butting heads. It was also fun to do Daxter's little one-liner in there, as short as it was.

A New Color Commentator

Eric Baldwin: Hello, this is Eric again. And this scene we get our first introduction to Pecker in this game. And hopefully it's as much of a treat for the audience as it is for us. Pecker's always fun to work with, he's just got that different body shape and feathers for fingers, and his personality is obviously key. We also get to plant the seeds, kind of the interaction between G.T. Blitz and Pecker. There's a little animosity at this point in the story; what we know is that Pecker is kind of stepping on his toes, and you know, taking over his gig, and you know, in some terms, but he also starts talking about the back plot of Mizo, and as we find out later in the game, Blitz doesn't really want that revealed. We got just a little bit of Daxter's reaction to seeing Pecker again, you know, they're friends with a little bit of animosity between them. And so, you know, as friendly as it is, it's fun to just kind of play that up. Woop! We see Blitz has got a toupee, I wonder if that's gonna reveal anything.

UR-86 Zeros in on Jak

Animator: I guess the interesting thing for me about this scene is very little notices. One of my favorite things I did for the game actually was this sort of Nay Campbell catwalk thing that I did for Rayn. Doesn't really show up a lot but I really enjoyed doing that and I tried to keep that consistent through the attitude with her consistent throughout. I guess the other thing that was important here was someone who shall remain nameless decided it would be funny to have UR-86 the robot pick up Daxter by the head which involved not at all trivial sort of inversion of the animation hierarchy. It was not easy to do, but I hoped the payoff was okay and this is one of my favorites actually, I like playing with Daxter and I think he's funny here, despite the torture he undergoes. And I guess that's it.

Sig Returns

Josh Scherr: One of the new bits of technology we created for this game was the ability to stream textures off objects in the background, and what this enabled us to do was do all these TV screens that you see here. What the animator would do is actually animate them as a separate scene and then it would be applied to the television set in another scene and then we would continue animating from there. Now this scene was actually animated by Jason Martinsen, and since Jason Martinsen is no longer here I thought I would attempt to channel Jason Martinsen. I sat across from him for a while so I think I have a pretty good grasp on his voice. Okay, um, one of the most interesting things about this scene is that that line of Rayn's when she says "Oh joy! That Blitz fellow really gives me the creeps", actually that was supposed to be Keira saying "Oh joy", but the thing is they both sound so much alike in that one particular moment that you just never really noticed, so we just ran with it. So here we are looking at Sig inside the camera. Blitz is always surrounded by his cameras and so, wherever he goes, the cameras go with him. And so once he leaves, the cameras leave with him. Thank you Jason, that was very informative. You're welcome. See you around sometime? Yeah sure. So anyway, here comes Sig who was the only one who was smart enough not to go to the Krew meeting. If we had actually talked about the fact that he was here after having received a care package from Krew posthumously, but then we just decided at least one character needed to be smart enough not to drink the poison.

Odds are Bad

Josh Scherr: This is Josh again, this is actually one of my favorite scenes that I animated in the game because G.T. Blitz and Pecker are both such dynamic characters and they're butting heads all the time. It's kind of like an immovable object meets unstoppable force. The other fun thing I had to do with this scene was I got to pull some images from the Jak archives. That one of Jak fending off Keira and Ashelin, of course, was one I made up specifically for the scene. The other fun thing about using still images is that it means less for me to actually animate. Yay! This is one of my favorite bits with the shaky cam and Pecker and G.T. Blitz sort of fighting for the camera here. My wife says I make that face sometimes when I'm unhappy. And just lots of fun animation. And of course, you know, I have to throw in obscene gesture into the game at some point, so here it is.

Keira Wants to Race

Dan Arey: This was a scene that was animated by Greg Griffith. Just so we made sure we made all the old Jak fans happy, we made sure Keira was definitely in the scenes a lot more. We heard a lot of issues about people wanting Keira more into the story, into the game so we did that. And so you get lots of that and of course daddy's there as well. So when was the last time you ever saw a father-daughter fight in animation here, trying to do something a little different, and also make sure the Keira fans are all satisfied. One of the things about Keira that's interesting in all this whole story, when we started doing the Jak X story, basically, we wanted to kind of figure out a way to have the plot and all of these issues, these personal issues actually interesting enough that they could also be resolved on the track and so Keira wanting to race was just the perfect example where she's always sort of helping Jak out, giving him tools and weapons and things. For the first time she's really pushing back and growing up and saying to her father that she wants to get out there with the boys and mix it up. So, we knew that this was one of the smaller, smaller plots that could actually be resolved on the track, and a lot of the issues with Jak X was how do we make these plot points get resolved on the track, which was really challenging. But overall we wanted to make sure that a genre that's traditionally light on story, like a racing genre, could actually for the first time have some emotional impact based on story and have narrative that really makes you interested in racing. Not just to race for the fun of it all but to actually get out there and see what happens next.

Kleiver Shows Up

Developer: Okay what we have here is a scene with Jak and Rayn and Daxter here, and Jak's explaining the complications of the race. Of course Rayn doesn't clearly understand so Daxter comes in and explains it to her. And she looks kind of stupid here and Daxter's just making her look like a kook. And soon Kleiver arrives and he adds more anxiety on top of what's going on here in this scene. But of course, Jak and Daxter take it in stride and they are totally cool with Kleiver, Kleiver does not affect them in any way whatsoever. As you can see Daxter is making fun of Kleiver here too. And so Kleiver is like, "I'm gonna get you guys if it's the last thing I do" as he walks off the screen.

Grease Monkey Daxter

Animator: This scene here was a lot of fun to do. I got a chance to do a lot of different things with Daxter that I didn't normally get a chance to do, like have him flip around a wrench. I thought it was fun to have an object that he could play with and that sort of thing. Most of the time you just see him, you know, talking without anything in his hands but for this scene I got the chance to do something different. Another thing to note is that I picked up animating this scene from Adam, he left midway through the scene so I tried to match my animation to what he did earlier. And he did mostly the first part with Kleiver walking in and basically blocked out the rest of the scene.

Krew's Diary

Josh Scherr: Hi, this is Josh again. This is of course one of the big plot reveal moments in the game where we learn that Krew isn't just having Jak race just for the heck of it, but in fact because he's made a bet with Mizo. One of the interesting dynamics in this scene that I tried to play with a little bit, is of course as we find out at the end of the game, Rayn has known all along what her father has been up to, but of course, in this scene she's completely playing the innocent, so at the very beginning of this scene when Jak walks in she's actually watching the hologram already. And the implication is that Jak has actually interrupted her, but the way that she plays it off is she's just like "Oh you know, I just happened to be going through my dad's things." So I tried to leave that fairly ambiguous. Now this part at the end of the scene was actually one of my favorite bits that I worked on in the game because there's a lot of good, sort of interpersonal dialogue and Jak giving one fairly unusually long speech for Jak in the game. Usually Jak is a man of few words, but here he's giving a little soliloquy. And, you know, getting a little bit of contact between the two different characters. And Jak, you know, being the sap that he is moves in to comfort Rayn.

Mizo Offers a Deal

Dan Arey: So this is kind of an interesting scene we've put together. We wanted to sort of continue to show Rayn and Jak having their relationship and their kind of strange difficulty that they have with each other. They kind of were attracted but they had other issues. And of course always Blitz being in the middle of all of this. But in this case, he's coming on strong with his show right there in front of them. So the idea behind this again was that, as Jak has been winning the races, that suddenly Mizo realizes he's going to lose, and so he's trying to offer a deal to try to broker a possible settlement before Jak wins. And the excitement about this whole thing, of course, is, you know, setting this up is that obviously Mizo and Blitz are the same person. So we're just trying to give you a little bit of foreshadowing with the tattoos on the top of Mizo's head, and you'll understand what those are all about later, with the whole toupee. So yeah Blitz is understandably surprised that Jak didn't take the offer but that's Jak for you, he's a hero he's gonna fight to the end. And Daxter, he's not happy about any of it.

Jak's Car was Sabotaged

Dan Arey: Here's another scene with G.T. Blitz sort of more of a quiet intimate scene considering we have so many flamboyant scenes with him, this is him a little bit much more toned down manner. We wanted to kind of show both sides of him. What's interesting about this scene, actually, is this kind of giving you a tip of the iceberg of a much bigger plot element that we had to sort of excise slowly from the game, we had too much going on and we didn't have enough screen time for everything. Actually G.T.'s father, this whole issue and the idea of referencing his father was really because we were actually going to expand on the idea that there was sort of a plot going on and some red herrings that people wondered who had actually killed him, who killed G.T.'s father. Turns out, G.T. did, so this was going to be both a red herring and a surprise in the story.

Jak's Dark Secret

Developer: The thing I like about... was enjoyable about doing this scene was this sort of playing with the ambush journalism notion of G.T. walking in with a set of cameras and sort of surprising everybody with this reality show secret revealing moment, and wouldn't journalists of today love to have objects like these floating around. I think it's rather unfortunate that Jak comes off not looking too good in this, there's really no way to get around that he lied to everybody. But it was fun to do, and I like putting G.T.'s face in the camera like this, I think he's a fun character despite everything. Once again, I get to do a little bit of princess cat walking with Rayn here, a little bit of attitude with her, which I kind of like, right there. I love this "ugh" moment of hers, as if we haven't all seen that from somebody, somewhere.

The Final Race

Developer: Ah yes, this scene here took some time to do. It was a lot of fun, another scene with all the characters here, and this dynamic is the last, final boss race here and we're gonna go into the race. And we see Blitz here talking about the race and that sort of thing. I think what I was trying to show was the, you know, the anxiety on the faces of the characters, and, you know, the inner conflict between Rayn and Ashelin. And then Krew shows up to show that much more on top of it. I think I did a pretty good job. I approach these things with a sort of necessity, the urge to animate and I think I enjoy that very much. At this point you can see Jak scolding Rayn a little there. At the end of the scene everybody comes together and says "Hey, we're gonna do this for the better of all us and for all better good", and hopefully they will succeed.

Jak Wins it All

Eric Baldwin: Hi, this is Eric again and this is the first part of the outro. There's a challenge in staging this in that when Blitz comes up to the crowd at the end, he has to be oblivious to the cameras being on him, so as he reveals his whole grand scheme and plan he has to feel safe in that. So when I staged the beginning I had these crane shots or the helicopter point of view, almost showing their relative positioning on the stage, which is the Dethdrome here. And Blitz comes up and has his big reveal that he's Mizo. There was an element in the script we ended up opting not to use where the Mizo part of his personality was actually kind of a split personality and he had a little dialogue with himself as he was resolving that. It just seemed to be a little bit too complicated to explain and present in such a short scene.

Mizo's End

Josh Scherr: This scene was a very last-minute addition when we realized there wasn't a good connection between you blowing up Blitz in the game and him ending up in a mangled heap at the end of the scene. So, Taylor and I planned out a very quick little Blitz crashing scene and threw it together in about two and a half days. And so Jak walks on picking up the antidote case that miraculously landed right side up after Blitz's crash. Now this scene is interesting to me because the way that Blitz taunts Jak as Jak is walking off is by referencing the fact that Jak left Damas behind at the end of Jak 3, and also frankly left behind the Baron at the end of Jak II. Which is why Jak looks a little bit sad as he walks off here. And you know, Blitz blows into a thousand pieces.

Photo Finish

Bob Rafei: So this is the outro and we wanted to, again, try to bring in more energy to these scenes given our twenty seconds a week mandate which always goes into a thirty seconds a week, of course. So, one of the things I enjoy tremendously as an animator who no longer can animate, because doing production designs and whatnot at Naughty Dog, is setting up the camera staging. I really get into that, and in this scene I had a great time getting in there and choosing the camera angles for a lot of shots. For example, in this one I wanted to make sure we have an upshot on Krew as we have established throughout the production to give him more presence and more weight and in this case he's looking down on them. And then we wanted to get more personal view in so that we cut back to them and any time we cut to the characters I'm trying to minimize the number of times we cut. So, in a few cases we actually combined the camera shots. Here, Dan Faller actually animated this sequence and the idea was now that we see Rayn in her new presence we kind of get closer into her head and see what she's really thinking about. And I thought it would be really cool to bookend the way she drives off into the sunset the way we see in the intro. And back to Josh animating here, and Josh had the hard task of coming up with the kiss shot and any time polygonal characters kiss it never looks right. And his take on this was that Daxter has actually prevented them from kissing so many times that he had to do it like that.
