    Even twelve year after its original release on the Dreamcast, Jet Set Radio is still a must-have, blessed by an incredible soundtrack and visuals that didn't age much, thanks to the cel shading rendering.

    If you've played Jet Set Radio already, then you'll be a fool not to get this version, there is no looking through rose tinted retro glasses, it is still an amazing game and one you need to play again.

    Jet Set Radio's still capable of making people say, "What the hell is that?"

    It's quirky enough to turn off the unadventurous, but for the rest of us, it's every bit as relevant as it was in 2000. [Nov 2012, p.84]

    Loved it on the Dreamcast and it has aged very well. Still every bit as relevant today. The style, the feel of the game is fantastic. This is what games are all about; atmosphere and a great fusion of style and substance. Sega hit the nail on the head with this game, it transcends the usual monotony of another generic shooter or sports title. Missing this (especially at the price this time around) would be a mistake for those that love games and gaming. Full Review »

    I played it on my son's DC back when and I liked it OK, but it didn't grab me. But when I played Jet Set Radio Future (the sequel to JSR) on the Xbox, I was blown away. The gameplay was much better. Now had they released a revamp of JSRF, I would get it, because IMO, that was the better game. Full Review »

    Just as No Association said to ignore the Critic Metascore I must warn you of the nostalgic user score. This is an awkward game that is in every way worse than its sequel. It's stumbling and slow, but the music and personality is vibrant and will stick with you. Ten bucks you get what you pay for; Don't get much else though. Full Review »
