    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. Graphically, Jet Set Radio Future is one of the most gorgeous games to grace a console.
  4. After watching the characters dance and listening to the game's great music, I now find myself dancing around my house like an idiot.
  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. A game caught in confusion, in one aspect Smilebit have tried to speed up the gameplay and streamline it, yet in removing the time limit and cops that said immediacy is completely lost, what’s the point in whizzing around all of the levels if you have all the time in the world.

    A great looking game that isn't very deep. [19 Apr 2002, p.75]

It's gameplay is fun, like some sort of weird mix between a showoff sports game, (eg snowboarding) a racing game, and a adventure game. All of the characters look and feel very different from each other. The story is so so but one character, aptly named DJ Professor K deserves special mention, he basically serves as a hilarious narrator, I laughed out loud several times at his awesome one liners. This game is more open worldy than it's predecessor, and it works well. It's got a lot of challenge later on especially if you want to unlock the secret characters. All in all a fantastic experience.

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 is one of those games that should not be rated in a one sentance review. The graphics are a nice step up from it's prior game. This is one of those games that should not be rated in a one sentance review. The graphics are a nice step up from it's prior game. While the cartoon cel-shading game look is now not very original, It still looks great in this game. the story line in this game is too much the same to the first...same evil man with the same grop trying to do the same thing....but i dont care too much cause the gameplay is too good to pass up. Its great wallriding to a jump and then spraypainting something mid-air....it is very awsome....check this game OUT!!! Expand

    Might not be a very popular game, but it’s actually very good! However, I do prefer the original, but this is still fun to play!

What another game? I'll just try it out once...what? It's a freaking good game!!! The suprise packet of the xbox comunity! This game is fun to play...a little childish in parts...especially the enormous proportions given to the female characters, but none-the-less fun to play with plenty of mission and lots of game time!
