Game description: Jak is back in the 3D combat racing game Jak X: Combat Racing. After saving the world in Jak 3, Jak finds out he must save the word once again; this time, by entering a combat racing tournament. As Jak, you must compete in a handful of game modes while progressing through a nonlinear story. The game includes a variety of power-ups, tracks, and customization options. Multiplayer and online modes are also available.
In Jak X: Combat Racing, the player controls characters from the Jak and Daxter series, all of which race in customizable dune buggy-like vehicles. The two main modes of play in the game are Adventure and Exhibition. Jak, the main character of the series, is the only playable character in the Adventure mode, and must participate in a series of Eco Cup Championships in the game's story to obtain an antidote to a poison he and his comrades have consumed.
||USA v02.20(10/02/2006), Playable with a patch. Patch available here (NTSC and PAL).|
||The patch makes the game run, but soon it will hang, and stop. To fix this, switch to Progressive Scan and 60 Hz, it makes the hanging happen later.||VoidX|
|NTSC-U||Windows 10 Pro x64||
||Game boots fine without patch. Only tested it in progressive mode. Has some minor slowdown issues without speedhacks but I don't notice with them enabled. Level 3 EE Cyclerate causes the game not to boot, but level 2 works just fine. Manual save soft locks the game, but if you reboot, the save file was successfully created and autosave works properly. Minor and random graphical issues abound, sometimes the HUD glitches, but nothing that can't be worked past. Splitscreen is still completely broken graphically. All graphical issues including splitscreen seem fixed in software mode.||Darkshadows|
