Out with the old...

Not even Naughty Dog likes Jak II: Renegade, and for good reason – it's absolutely atrocious. As such, we're not entirely sure why budding Australian artist Jordan Stewart-Herlihy has decided to remake the divisive second instalment, but his work is still worth sharing – even if the sight of those sliding electrical traps makes us want to punch a wall.

The upgrade's being built in CryEngine 3, and it does look more suited to Crytek's first-person shooter series, but the attention to detail is at least meticulous; we love the weather effects. Either way, the thought of playing this pseudo-open world sequel again has left us coming out in cold sweats, so we'll skip on this well intentioned overhaul, ta.

... In with the new.
