    If you're a Jet Set Radio fan, you have to check this game out. It's a great tribute, and even though the comparisons are obvious, it still has its own personality.

    Hover isn’t just free-form faffing about. There’s a movement here and if you want to join it, well…I’ll let you discover that stuff. Even anarchists’ playgrounds can have structured activities.

    Hover: Revolt of Gamers is a solid, open-world MMORPG that livens up the genre by honing in on what made its inspirations so great, and fusing these qualities together, culminating in an exciting world full of vibrant personality. While there is room for some refinement, Fusty Game and Midgar Studio have created an impressive action parkour game which promises to overload the senses.

    Hover ends up as a game that's a blast to maneuver around and explore but becomes at odds with its own design. There are a lot of peculiar decisions that make everything much more frustrating than it needs to be. Hover is something I desperately wanted to fall in love with, and although I’m happy to have been acquainted with it, we’ll be headed our separate ways moving forward.

    Hover is a good tribute to the Dreamcast era, but it lacks of personality and style to define the evolution of the genre.

    Hover: Revolt of Gamers is definitely not a game that I enjoyed at all. It was boring, uninspired and often times way too frustrating. With that said, I could see it being a game that could potentially appeal to others. I felt the multiplayer aspect didn’t add anything special to the game, the visuals were bland and the music was awful (the music will definitely have an audience that loves it – it’s just not something I enjoy listening to). The missions were way too repetitive and usually varied between boring and frustrating with very few hitting that sweet spot where I was having fun.

    I really enjoyed Hover: Revolt of Gamers, its fun and challenging, i love that about games.
    Lacks personality and style, huh IGN? Well, don't hear the companies, they just give reviews about the money, this game has an incredible style and cool, its like they said, it actually inspired by Jet Set Radio.
    So i give an 8 because there's a lot of room to grow and there's many things missing, like competitive records.

    Ahhh finally, for once i have found a retro throwback style game of something from my time, the olden days of the Sega Dreamcast and originalAhhh finally, for once i have found a retro throwback style game of something from my time, the olden days of the Sega Dreamcast and original Xbox and when people weren't **** about which platform they called the "master race".
    Anyway, Hover Revolt Of Gamers is a 3rd person action adventure game trying to emulate the gameplay style of Jet Set Radio, the old Sega Dreamcast title from 1999.
    You play from a wide range of characters but mostly the generic hooded Johnny Nobody you choose at the start. The story of the game is... well there really isn't one, you just go around doing random missions and quests for people.
    The gameplay is pretty good, it actually feels like a modern version of Jet Set Radio for the Dreamcast. The world has a lot of bright colors and interesting designs going for it, and unlike a lot of other recent games, you have the ability to actually explore the world you are in.
    The game also improves on it's predecessor, by having things like customizable characters and features like a rewind button and a dedicated button for grinding on rails, all things the previous game did not have.
    The only real complaint i have with this game are the controls, for example, by default it doesn't detect controllers unless you go into the options menu and set the presets for which ever controller you have, the other issue i have is that sometimes it wouldn't register when i was hitting a certain button.
    This would mean that in some places where it would tell me to jump and grind on a rail, only the jump would register and the grind wouldn't, i suspect it wants you to have exact timing on the buttons. One other issue i have with the game is the lack of a map system, this is a huge world map and i think the game would really benefit from having a map in the corner of the screen.
    Aside from those issues, this game has a lot going for it, including the original soundtrack by Hideki Naganuma, the same man that did the music for Jet Set Radio and it's sequel on the original Xbox.
    Overall, for $16USD i'd say wait a little bit and buy the game on sale.
