Review

Story

The story is pretty simple, you gather a crew and start expanding your turf through your graffiti.
Other crews want to take over your turf and kidnap your dog, while trying to get your dog back you see a black car drop a disc piece, this leads to you collecting the other pieces. Turs out a guy named Goji thinks the disc is something demonic and wants to get it so he can make a pact with a demon. He wants to take down all the graffiti and make it so there are no more skaters/graffiti artists.
He puts Golden Rhino posters all over the graffiti you need to spray graffiti on all of them and show him you aren't scared. After all that it's time to take him on!
You beat him in a final battle and the credits start to roll.

Graphics

The graphics have aged well in my opinion, the game is colorful and the art style really catches your eye.
Some of the effects are pretty well done too.

Gameplay
The gameplay is exactly what you would expect from this game. You are rolling around at the speed of sound while tagging graffiti and collecting spray cans so you can tag even more.
The red spray cans refill your health, the yellow spray cans give you 1 spray can and the blue spray cans give you a couple of spray cans. Like it's original name ,,Jet Grind Radio" the main focus is grinding and tagging.
You perform cooler tricks the faster you are moving, for example if you are really slow and press the jump button you just do a simple jump but if you are going fast and press the jump button your character performs a trick.
You can clear stages in a simple casual way or you can be the speed runner and just breeze through the level.
You unlock new spray art by finding them around the map. You can customize you tag with letters of your choice or the ones you have unlocked.

Pros:
+Nice soundtrack
+Catchy graphics
+Freedom in stages
+Multiple playable characters.
+Good controls (if you are used to them)
+Characters MEW and GUM (rule 34) ;]

Cons:
-Shows XBOX 360 controls instead of keyboard keys.
-Freedom in stages (under a time limit). there is plenty of time on the other hand.
-Controls may feel clunky if you are not used to them. (You will get used pretty fast, after failing once or twice).

Final Verdict :
~~ 9/10

The game is great and it's the most fun I have had in steam since ,,Out There Somewhere"
This game deserves more than 3.99€

Jet set radio future was one of my favourite games on the original xbox, but since the disc got scratched and was unable to play it anymore, i had to resort to "jet set radio" which is the only version of the series on the PC, and it filled that nostalgic void perfectly, same basic gameplay style that we all love but also with quicktime events when you spray paint you need to fling your analog sticks around which is fun, just slightly more cartoonish and basic graphics style but the soundtrack is still hip and features many of the same songs from jet set radio future.

In other words.... UNDERSTAND, UNDERSTAND , UNDERSTAND, UNDERSTAND, UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT OF LOVE. OOH~

p.s. I know SEGA isn't SEGA anymore, and they only care about making crappy sonic games for fricking frick 12vies, but bringing Jet Set Radio Future HD to the PC would be amazing, and if a sequel to JSRF could be made that would be pretty neat too.

10/10 Absolute hidden gem.

Great, creative game. Kinda like an in-line skating version of the Tony Hawk skating games except animeish. Soundtrack is good. PC Port is mostly excellent and you can import your spray paints. 9/10 game

*I would highly recommend that you use a controller. Mouse+Keyboard is doable, but very, very painful.
