Have you ever wanted to be a rollar-blading punk, rollin' around the city tagging walls, and stickin' it to the man?
No? Maaaan ♥♥♥♥ you get out of here yes you have. This game is known far across the land for it's kickin' soundtrack, beats so thick you could bounce a coin off 'em. Also, it's so old GBA could run it, so don't sweat the specs. Only worry is the keyboard controls suck harder than your EX girlfriend, so grab an Xbox 360 controller and get going.

Now the objective of the game is simple, roll around the city, tag some walls, and keep away from the fuzz. However, this is all done to the sweet sonic sound that will be oozing out of the audio device of your choosing. It also helps that this game has graphically dated better than you could ever dream of. (Oh snap son.) You might get one Jet rank on your first playthrough. Might. If you wanna get Jet on every mission you must first study the anicent urban staking gurus.

There are moments where this game gets janky, though. Even with the right controller getting your character to move how you want can be like trying to guide a small badger through a den of hungry lions. Or sorta like that. Only less guiding the badger through the den and more like the badger just ♥♥♥♥♥ing out, The game also lasts about as long as Chaos Knight's mana bar in a teamfight.

HOWEVER. Deep down you know you don't just want this game, you need it. You NEED to grind on that rail, you NEED to tag that wall, you NEED to UNDERSTAND UNDERSTAND UNDERSTAND UNDERSTAND UNDERSTAND UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT OF LOVE

Kickass music by Hideki Naganuma, a great atmosphere, fantastic artstyle and stylish gameplay.

You take part in a group of fast rollerblading graffiti artists, doing all kinds of tricks while spraypainting the hell out of Tokyo-to.

And all this while the police, the army and some moob goons straight outta' the 70's chase you.

This game will remind you why you love video games. Enjoy!

Great classic game, no major problems with the port. At least on my system having flash running in the background kills the framerate (win 8.1 x64, intel i5, intel 4400 graphics) so you'll want to kill that process if it's open, & I serioulsy doubt you'll be able to play this game w/o a controller.

This game is easily in my top 10 games of all time. Though my steam hours may be kind of lacking, I've played this game a lot on the Dreamcast. This port is fantastic and playing it in HD is such a joy. But what is it that makes this game so special?

First off, lets talk music. This game has one of the greatest soudtracks of all time. Every song is incredibly varied and every single one will get stuck in your head. Hideki Naganuma created an absolute masterpiece with this soundtrack.

Next thing worth mentioning are the visuals. This game was originally made in the year 2000, thats 14 years ago, and it STILL looks good to this day. Sure, some of the textures may be a bit lacking and objects may seem a bit blocky by today's standarads, but for an HD re-release of a game thats 14 years old, it holds up really well.

The game play is really fun as well. The game has a really good flow to it, seeing as it relys heavily on your momentum. Sure, some say the controls are a bit clunky and the auto-grinding can be a pain sometimes, but once you get used to it, those things stop being an issue (for the most part). Grinding down a railing,, jumping off to wall ride, doing a backflip off of said wall onto another railing, all while spraying graffiti and avoiding helicopter and tank fire still feels as awesome as ever.

With all of this said, I heavily recommend purchising this game, whether you've played the original or not. Maybe if enough of you readers buy it, sega will put out that Jet Set Radio Future remake we are all waiting for
