Summary

I could rabbit on forever...

The Good

Interesting twists. Jazz can ride a hoverboard thing (try seeing sonic do that!); plus he can actually kill with a variety of weapons (and he NEVER jumps on baddies to kill them). The levels are colourful, interesting and populated with a menagerie of different enemies.

The Bad

I must admit, I have fallen into a few pits and gotten eternally stuck.

The Bottom Line

Jazz is the ultimate rabbit super-hero, not that there are many contenders. This twist on the ol' side scroller certainly beats the separate consoles' own mascots. Great for a PC game.
