    Delivers on every level -- gameplay, graphics, sound and, especially, originality. Greedy as we are, we can only complain that there isn't even more goodness.
  2. 100
    A game that captures the essence of why most of us started playing games in the first place -- skill, speed, innovation and style, with gameplay that's as fun to watch as it is to play.

    A knock-you-on-your-ass game that's so good it should be considered a felony not to own it.

    Heck, one of the coolest games EVER! A combination of punk sensibility, fantastic music, great gameplay, and just plain awsomeness.

    A visually gorgeous game that combines awesome graphics, fresh gameplay, irresistible music, and incredible design in a polished package that is a true original.

    There's plenty of challenging levels and the most blinkered PS2 stalwart would have to admit that it looks amazing.

    Maybe I'm just being picky, but I found the camera positioning quite annoying at times, especially in the last section of the final boss.

It has great looks, great sounds, great level design... but it controls so poorly, and the camera is so bad, it gets nearly unplayable sometimes! You may not notice in early levels, but later JGR just ceased to be fun. Expand
