Box art for Jak II (North American release)

Jak II (stylized as Jak II: Renegade in Europe and Oceania) is the second game of the Jak and Daxter series. It is the sequel to Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, and was followed by Jak 3 a year later. The game was created by Naughty Dog and released for the PlayStation 2 in North America on October 14, 2003.

The game features notably darker tones compared to the first game, a story that picks up shortly after the events of Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, and some very cool twists. The gameplay is vastly different too: Daxter is playable for the first time in the series (altought it's limited to some sections), Jak can drive turn into Dark Jak to be more powerful for a limited time, and the eco powers from the first game are replaced by guns, and it actually works really well.
