    A breathtaking experience. From the inimitable graphics to the hypnotically addictive gameplay, it’s captivating on every level.
  2. JSRF is hipper and cooler than any game on the market. Other games are jealous, and rightfully so.
  3. 91
    One of the coolest titles around. It's unique...just not enough of a challenge.
  4. 90
    Drips with style in every possible way. It's a brilliant game, but at times it's more challenging than it is fun.
  5. JSFR looks better than any game around but, being a bit too easy and slow, it doesn't involve or engage you as it should. [GamesMaster Magazine]
  6. It's not as groundbreaking as the original, but it's just about as fun.
  7. A great looking game that isn't very deep. [19 Apr 2002, p.75]

    It's quite telling when reviews are spread out so much- either extremely positive or extremely negative. Something to note though, is that the people who voted it low mostly didn't give the game more than a few minutes. Out of the critics, eg people who actually have (or at least, are expected to), there's not a single negative review.
    This game is one of the most outstanding and unique achievements of all time. It wont be for everybody, and is flawed in some aspects. Fortunately the outstanding parts overshadow the shortcomings parts in a big way- and for a game that took outrageous risks (the soundtrack brings together some of the weirdest and unappealing tracks ever and makes them into something absolutely incredible) pretty much all of it pays off.
    Sure, the level design can be detrimental to the fun factor, by trying to inject difficulty, and it gets a little lengthy if you don't take a decent break between sessions. But playing this through for the second time (third if you count the DC version) now, and it still holds up fantastically. Graphics, characters, style, gameplay... 10 years after release, and it still feels fresher than fresh.

    This game is insanely fun and addicting. The camera totally blows, which can also make controlling the character a little wonky. Occasionally, they try to put too many things on the screen, which can cause stuttering. It may not be insanely difficult, but it's FUN. Expand

    I grew up with this game. The music, story, and graphics are steller. And the music is great.
    I recommend this game to everyone though it
    isn't a game for everyone.
