Jak X: Combat Racing
Jak X: Combat Racing is a vehicular combat, arcade-style racing game based on the Jak and Daxter series. The game was first released in 2005 for the PlayStation 2, before being revamped with trophy support for the PlayStation 4 in 2017.
Players control characters from the Jak and Daxter series, racing in customizable cars resembling dune buggies. In Adventure mode, Jak must participate in Eco Cup Champions in order to obtain the antidote to a poison. In Exhibition mode, players can select other characters and race freely. Vehicular combat is also a major segment of the game, in which players can pick up offensive and defensive weapons to use against other racers.
The original Jak X: Combat Racing received positive reviews with an average score of 78%, praised for its graphics, variety in gameplay modes, and multiplayer, though criticized by some for its difficulty curve.
The difficulty of this game entirely depends on your racing skills and experience, as well as a bit of luck. The game as a mixture of some easy races, and challenging ones which may require several retries until cleared. Overall, with enough patience, any average player can push through and get that Platinum without too much difficulty or much time required. There are no online trophies to worry about, and no missable trophies, either.
Expect around 12-15 hours for the Platinum, depending on your racing skills and a bit of luck.
We recommend beginning with Adventure mode, which is the main story for the game. This is divided into four tournaments called Eco Cups, with 20 races in each. You will eventually need to get Gold in each individual race for each Eco Cup’s respective trophy. However, there are no missable trophies, so feel free to move on if a particular race is too difficult, and return to it later.
Next, you’ll need at least 500,000 Precursor Orbs to spend on unlockables, which in turn will net you more trophies. If you’ve managed to get Gold on all races in Adventure mode, than you should already have your 500,000 Precursor Orbs. If not, then this is a good chance to go back and get Gold on any races you’re missing.
Now it’s time to do some shopping. To save time, first make a back-up save on a separate slot. Then visit either the Secret Shop in the main menu, or the Garage in the Yellow Eco Cup in Adventure mode, and start buying items and upgrades to unlock their respective trophies. Check out the Jak X Combat Racing trophy guide links under our Links tab for details on these trophies.
Once you’ve bought all you can, exit out and reload the previous save with the 500,000 Precursor Orbs to buy what you’re still missing.
After that, simply mop-up whatever trophies you may still be missing before getting the Platinum. Again, check out the Jak X Combat Racing trophy guide links to see what you still need and their requirements.
