    The Collectationator!

    So I am on the final stretch of the main story. I checked the trophy guide and saw that the 8 orbs there are miss able apparently. I started googling for information and found people saying you can go back to the prison and the only area you cannot return to is the nest at the end of the game. I was wondering if anyone who has earned this trophy or collected them all on the ps2 could shed some light on this topic.

    Thanks

    You do in fact return to the Prison, but it is for a brief period in the story, and after that I'm sure you can't go back.

    You are able to return to the prison after the mission Rescue Friends at Fortress, but (if I remember correctly) you will be unable to get those orbs during the mission. As when you get back to the "treatment room" from the beginning, you are shown a cutscene and sent to the Power Station via warp gate.

    I dunno how you did it man!? All the races are so unforgiving it blows my mind. Taking a break from 2 and starting up 3. Hopefully I can pull it together and finish it off at some point. Side note: You got Jak 3 done already too?! Are you a Jak guru or something bro? haha

    Yeah, I'm pretty frustrated with this trophy too, I was happy as can be when right before the fight with Kor the Head Master trophy popped up, I'm just missing the level based orbs, 186/286! Why world! Why must you do this to me!
    But regarding the missable orbs, the only orbs that are missable are in fact the Prison orbs, because (as pointed out) the only opportunity to return to the prison greets you with a nasty cutscene. Make sure to clear that out before you start the game!

    EDIT: I was looking at a precursor orb guide made when the PS2 version came out, and I noticed there were 4 in the Palace Tower where you first fight the Baron, are these missable? (Because if so, I'm screwed )


    EDIT2: Nevermind, I forgot there was a door to go back up to this part.

    The area that has the highest amount of orbs is the Mountain Temple, it has 17 orbs to collect

    Also, I realized that the orbs at the Metal Head nest are missable as it can't be returned to through normal gameplay.
    Am I able to select it through level select or whatever? Or will I not have my total orb count if I use level select?

    If I can't use level select, does Hero Mode reset your orb count?

    The nest is the only area you cannot return to. I have a decent orb guide link....Jak 2 - Precursor Orbs

    He breaks it down fairly well. Races are still a bitch though

    Not sure about Hero play through.

    This guy has some great videos for (i think) all of the major challenges in Jak II, and also a few for Jak 3
    Sidenote: Back when I had my PS2 I had 6 games. The Jak And Daxter series and the Sly Cooper series, so I've really just had a lot of practice.
    Good luck everyone.

    Make sure that you rack up major combos between flips and grinding! Use the elevated walkways to do multiple grinds with the railing on the sides and above all, make sure you keep up your speed! I was easily able to get 2.5x the gold score using this technique!

    Alright I'll keep trying at it. I've gotten 90k top score now. What does keeping fast speed do?
