Jackie Chan Adventures for PlayStation 2 follows the story of the cartoon series very closely, as Jackie's Uncle sends him to recover 12 ancient talismans. Each talisman unlocks new powers for Jackie, allowing him to access new areas within the game world. Jackie faces conflict from an evil group of ninjas known as the Dark Hand, who are also on the trail to find the talismans for the demon Shendu. If he were to attain the talismans, Shendu would regain all his former powers allowing him to destroy the world! With the help of Uncle, and various Chi symbols, Jackie is able to defeat the numerous demons placed in his path by the Dark Hand and send them back to the Netherworld forever.
