    I'm mixed on this game. I received this for free via Playstation Plus, and decided to jump right in without playing the tutorial.i enjoyed the first few stages, figuring out the controls on my own, and decided to hop into the tutorial.

Big mistake. This game has the most difficult and frustrating tutorial I have ever seen in a game. It only provides basic information, and you're going to have to view some external sources to get a grip on the game physics, and just how to approach certain tasks. Once you've cracked the shell, however, you'll be surprised. Jet Set Radio is different, from the floaty in-line skating controls, to the art style that makes it look like a three-dimensional cartoon, the game doesn't contain a real worthwhile story, but it seems nonessential to the overall package in the first place. No doubt about it JSR is a blast once you learn it's tricks, but it can be frustrating to learn those tricks in the first place. Expand

    This has the worst control of any game I can remember. But do you know what? That's not the point. This release is all about originality and nostalgia. When a game that seemed ahead of it's time years and years ago still seems ahead of it's time today, it really makes you think. I feel this way when I first played it on the dc and I still feel this way now. However, if you never playedThis has the worst control of any game I can remember. But do you know what?

However, if you never played this back in the day, there's a very good chance you will hate this game more than anything you can possibly imagine. We have the worst controlling game ever, but it is still kinda fun. Also, I only paid $9 for this and I always take into account price. Anymore $$$ and my review score would drop like crazy. Expand

    Uniquely, irresistibly charming. [Dec 2012, p.114]

    The Dreamcast classic returns. In HD! The soundtrack is still brilliant. Depending on who you ask, the gameplay might not have aged as well. But for any true nostalgic fan, Jet Set Radio is still the best rollerblading game around. [November 2012, p.92]

    Jet Set Radio is by no means a perfect game, nor was it originally, but it's the world, its ideas and that same unique energy that keep it relevant today.
