This all might sound a bit simple-minded and silly, if you’ve never heard of Jet Grind Radio before. I assure you, the plot is entirely inane and nonsensical up until the very end. That’s really not my style, I don’t like when games think they’re really funny or that they’ve got more style than they really do. However, that’s not Jet Grind Radio. It has an over-abundance of style and personality around every bend and fits all the aspects that should make up a perfect game into one tight package. This is my idea of how flawless looks, sounds, feels, and plays. It’s not so much that it gave me a new standard, but it has certainly redefined how I view innovation in gaming.

What’s left to say? If Sega keeps cranking out thoroughly amazing titles like JGR, the Dreamcast could remain on top for years. While the other next-gen systems stumble through their first generation titles, the Dreamcast drives into new territory with incredibly innovative titles. Jet Grind Radio is an excellent example of what video games could be – artistic, insanely fun, and original.

Jet Grind Radio simply oozes with style and is probably the most fun you can have with your Dreamcast. I'm only sorry I waited almost a year before I realized what I had been missing and despite the lateness of this review I encourage every one of you with a Dreamcast to run out and buy this game right now. You should be able to find it in the discount bins for $9.99. I guarantee you will have countless hours of addictive, challenging, and just pure fun gameplay with Jet Grind Radio.

Like a kerosene bull in a fireworks factory constructed out of matchsticks, Jet Grind Radio is set to light the autumn skies ablaze. Not only does it mark the release of yet another triple-A Dreamcast title, but it signals a virtual call-to-arms for gamers everywhere: This is one of the most involving, well-designed and downright beautiful games ever created, and it's just the sort of landmark title that revitalizes one's faith in videogames. If you have ever used the words 'hardcore' and 'gamer' in the same sentence (or even adjacent sentences) to describe yourself, you absolutely, positively, must play this game.

Holy crap! Get this game! It is the most fun you can have playing a game on any system right now. Superb graphics, fun plot, replayability, custom graffiti you can download from the net, cool characters, hot music, and addictive gameplay! Dare I say this is the best action game on the market! I dare and it is. If you do not buy this game you will only be shorting yourself a truly awesome video game experience.

With prices on the Dreamcast as low as they are now; I implore you to grab yourself a console and this game. There are easily a dozen games that are must haves', and their cost is under $20. Jet Grind Radio tops my list for one of the best Dreamcast games to ever; and possibly of all time.

I'm not quite sure what a Smilebit is, personally. But if they could bottle and sell it, game developers worldwide would undoubtedly be compelled to unanimously declare a new favorite beverage, because in Jet Grind Radio, this team has unquestionably displayed that they indeed have "the stuff."

Jet Grind Radio is easily one of the best games to be developed for Dreamcast. Even though the camera can be a pain in the ass a few times more than it should have, things are never unbearable. This game just has so much personality it’s almost sickening. Perfect graphics and sound, mixed with near flawless gameplay is the ideal recipe for a brilliant game. If this doesn’t sell systems, I don’t know what will.

In the end, Jet Grind Radio is one of the most original experiences you'll ever have on a video-game system today. It's like when, back in the late eighties and early nineties, new genres were still being developed. The first few offerings had their rough edges, but they were still amazing, and one can only marvel at what can be done in the second iteration. Multiplayer support, a tighter camera, and tighter controls are the only things that can really be done to make Jet Grind Radio any better. As it is, any self-respecting Dreamcast owner should have this game.

Jet Set Radio heeft naast een geweldige verhaallijn ook nog een onuitputtelijke replay value omdat je na het uitspelen van het spel nog urenlang kunt doorgaan met het verkennen van de behaalde levels. Ook opties als zelf je tags ontwerpen of te downloaden van het internet geven het spel een extra dimensie.

Concluyendo, estamos ante uno de los mejores juegos de Dreamcast, un clásico intemporal que sólo ha sido superado por su secuela, Jet Set Radio Future, aunque el estilo de los gráficos no es exactamente igual. Smilebit hizo historia creando una pequeña obra de arte, tanto estética como jugable, y popularizando el "cell shading". Nadie debería dejar pasar la oportunidad de probar este juego, puede gustarte o puede que lo odies, pero seguro que no te deja indiferente.

When Sega makes a good game, they make a genre to go along with it. I'm hard pressed to classify the game. Is it a third person shooter? No, you never use a gun. Perhaps a graffiti sim? Not quite. But whatever it is, its fantastic!

DreamcastGamer's Pulse
Overall, Jet Set Radio offers a highly unique experience to gamers. This game can’t really be placed in any one genre; it’s a totally new style of game. Of course, for those of us who own Dreamcasts, we come to expect this from Sega all the time. But everyone else out there is definitely missing out on something extremely special. Games like this don’t come along very often, so those of you out there who call yourselves gamers should really aim to play Jet Set Radio at least once, even if you only rent it. And now, with Dreamcast at such a low price, there has never been a better time to pick up and enjoy Jet Set Radio. So if you are reading this review and don’t own a Dreamcast, stop reading and go to your local store to pick one up, or risk missing out on one of the most unique games ever created.

Being a game reviewer means you get to play a lot of titles, and a lot of the time it can become a chore to play a game. When the review is done, most games get shelved. That won't be the case with Jet Set Radio. This game is very enjoyable and definately has that replayability which so many games seem to lack these days. With a great soundtrack and some of the coolest characters ever this game will keep you playing for weeks. If you are a parent be warned that there is a lot of "tagging" required throughout the game, as it really is the main theme of the game. If you don't want your kids to think this is a cool idea at a young age you may want to steer clear. For others, the graphics, sound and gameplay will blow you away.

DreamcastThe Next Level
Despite the level of difficulty in the game, it's still an extremely fun title to get your hands on. Even after you beat it, there's still some great features (that will hopefully be left in the domestic version), like the Time Attack modes where you can upload your scores online to compare with other players. Overall, Sega has a real winner on its hands; a game that's not only fun for anyone over the age of 10 to play, but highly marketable as well. With the level of quality that goes into both the presentation of the game as well as the actual gameplay, I wouldn't be surprised if this is one of the titles that helps Sega attempt to weather the upcoming storm that is the PlayStation 2.

Jet Grind Radio remains a unique property. With its emphasis on grinding and painting rather than going for crazy tricks and high scores, there is something fresh about the gameplay. The visual presentation is outstanding and the music is perhaps some of the best I’ve heard on my GBA. This is a great way to relive the golden days of the Dreamcast and have some challenging fun on your GBA.

Einfach unglaublich was Sega mit diesem Spiel geschaffen hat! Jet Set Radio sprüht nur so vor Spielwitz und Style und markiert definitiv den Höhepunkt des japanischen Herstellers an Innovation und Ideenreichtum. Grafisch, sound- und präsentationstechnisch auf aller höchstem Dreamcast-Niveau, fesselt der Titel auch aufgrund der gelungenen Mischung aus Trendsport, Geschicklichkeit und Action ans Pad! Denn der Spielfluss bleibt trotz so vieler verschiedener Elemente stets hoch und wird auch nie durch einen unfairen Schwierigkeitsgrad gestört. Wäre der Umfang des Spiel nur nicht so knapp ausgefallen, hätts vielleicht zu „9,5 von 10“ gereicht. Trotzdem aber immer noch ein Spiel, das man gesehen und gespielt haben muss. So viel Spaß hat man selten!

Come già detto, Jet Set Radio è un titolo imprescindibile nella bacheca di ogni videogiocatore che si rispetti, anche solo per ciò che ha rappresentato al tempo della sua uscita che risale a oramai dieci lunghi anni fa. Un punto di riferimento per gli amanti della cultura hip hop e una inaspettata sorpresa per chi non la ha mai sopportata, ma soprattutto un acquisto imprescindibile per gli amanti del Dreamcast e dei tempi d’oro del Videogioco moderno inteso come espressione d’arte. Non averlo sarebbe un reato… peggiore che “imbrattare i muri”.

Weder Optik noch Spielmechanik von Jet Set Radio sind im letzten Jahrzehnt gealtert. Da schon das Original auf klare Kanten und Farbflächen statt Fitzel-Texturen setzte, hat die 3D-Grafik noch immer Stil und Klasse, statt hoffnungslos überholt zu wirken. Auch spielerisch bleibt der Mix faszinierend und einzigartig: Klassische Action- und Jump-and-Run-Elemente (sammeln, hüpfen, Bösewichte bekämpfen) werden mit moderner Open-World-Reise und den Ideen des Tanz- und Musikspiels kombiniert. Was am Originalspiel im wahrsten Sinne der Wortes schmerzt - die Steuerung mit dem klobigen und harten Dreamcast-Joypad - wirft das Remake über Bord: Die Spielmechanik verträgt sich glänzend mit modernen Controllern. Wer wissen möchte, wie sich der Sommer 2000 in Tokio anfühlte (und anhörte), der holt sich diesen Download.

DreamcastAdrenaline Vault, The (AVault)
It’s hard to describe exactly how it works out so well, but the graphics and music make a perfect union with the subject matter in this title, and the resulting fusion is an absolute joy to behold. Aside from some troublesome camera work and a clunky save game interface, Jet Grind Radio is easily one of the best offerings released in 2000 for the Dreamcast. [...] Patience is a virtue however, and those who press on past the steep learning curve will develop a new appreciation for the arts of level design and musical compilation. Mix in an impressive new technique for rendering characters that captures the spirit of animation while still being 3D, and you should have ample reason to master the rail slides and jumps needed to complete each level. With the possible exception of those that absolutely detest action games, any Dreamcast owner should strap on their blades and grind their way to the closest retailer for a copy of this high-flying gem.

DreamcastAll Game Guide
All in all, this mix of brilliant graphics, gameplay variety, and music makes for what might have been the greatest of Dreamcast games -- if only they'd bothered to toss in a two-player simultaneous mode. This is a glaring omission and would have almost certainly put the game over that nebulous masterpiece hurdle, whereas now it only skirts delicately against the surface of that prestigious bubble. Still, all qualms aside, Jet Grind Radio deserves to be recognized, and every Sega supporter and lover of quality games should go out and get it. Now.

Jet Grind Radio is a unique experience. The graphics are some of the most amazing you'll see on any of the "next-generation" consoles this year, and prove once again that with a little ingenuity, the Dreamcast can be even more visually stimulating than any of its more powerful brothers. Add in a fun soundtrack, gameplay that is as unique as anything else on the market today, and a great sense of style, and you know that Sega has a real winner on its hands. From the second you turn on your Dreamcast, you'll realize you're stepping into a game world like no other, and you may never want to leave. Simply put, Jet Grind Radio is one of the best titles available this holiday season, and a great addition to the already amazing Dreamcast library.

At first glance, Jet Grind Radio looks like an attempt to cash in on the recent skateboarding craze - but nothing could be farther from the truth. Sega's Jet Grind Radio is a game full of redefinitions, forcing you to really rethink what you expect out of a game from an audio/visual standpoint while delivering some exciting, balanced gameplay at the same time.

No hemos hablado del precio. De los 40 euros del juego original hemos pasado a los 4-10 euros entre los que se mueven las distintas versiones digitales (7,99 actualmente la versión de PS Vita). Incluso puedes disfrutar gratis del juego (se incluyó en PS Plus y también se ha ofrecido gratis en la tienda de aplicaciones de Samsung). Lo que quiero decir con estos números es que la relación calidad/precio del juego es altísima. Si bien no es un título que gustará a todo el mundo, y su jugabilidad pueda resultar a día de hoy algo tosca, hay que admitir que Sega ha puesto al alcance de casi cualquiera esta joya, que además representa de manera sublime lo que nuestra compañía favorita llegó a ser a finales del siglo pasado.

Jet Set Radio is one of those "something for everyone" games that really make a perfect addition to the Dreamcast library. While all of the game's speech is already in English, the tag editor and text throughout the game are all in Japanese, so it might be easier to just wait for the game's UK release later this year under the name Jet Grind Radio.

Even a game this good has to have some flaws. The camera is at times sporadic, but by no means hindering to the gameplay. Also, the control can be hard to grasp from the start, frustrating those with little patience. Otherwise, Sega has created the world's most innovative game in at least five years. Anyone who owns a Dreamcast owes it to themselves to see what the fuss is about.

What it all boils down to is this: Jet Grind Radio is a faithful, surprisingly fun remake of the original Dreamcast title, for the GBA. If you've played the original, the story, characters, and levels will all be very familiar, but if you haven't, you shall be thoroughly impressed throughout. Though it's lacking in a few areas - usually due to the isometric view of the game - it never really hurts the experience too much. If you're a fan of the original or just want a solid GBA game to play, Jet Grind Radio is not a bad choice at all.

Jet Grind Radio for the Dreamcast was a landmark title that pretty much makes it on those system owners' top Dreamcast games list. Whether its due to its originality, unique graphic style, or just because of its fun factor, the original Jet Grind Radio was a key game in the Dreamcast library. The legacy lives on in the official Xbox sequel, Jet Set Radio Future, but it was the original game that started it all.

DreamcastThe Video Game Critic
One major thing that annoyed me about this game is the camera work. Some levels have cramped areas, and you'll really struggle to get a good angle. And that's no fun when the police are beating you with clubs like Rodney King (I'm not kidding!). Jet Grind is unlike any other game out there. It's far from perfect, but it deserves a look.

Quelle superbe idée a eu Sega de porter son hit Jet Set Radio sur la PS Vita ! Ce jeu d’action original - un véritable Ovni vidéoludique - avait fait le bonheur des joueurs Dreamcast en 2000. Le titre a su marier un nouveau style graphique, le cel-shading, ainsi qu’un univers original et irrévérencieux. Après tout, Jet Set Radio n’exige-t-il pas du joueur de dégrader des lieux publics ?

On the Dreamcast, Jet Grind Radio oozed more style than should have legally been allowed. A lot of what made the game special there survives the leap to the GBA, but of course the obvious hardware limitations necessitate a few cut corners here and there. Considering this, Vicarious probably couldn't have done a much better job at adapting it to the small screen, and once you're used to its quirks then you'll find a crazy, fantastic gem of a game.

DreamcastGame Critics
Jet Grind Radio shows us a new and fun visual style and combines it with great music and fast gameplay to create one hell of an initial thrill. There are a lot of things to do within the game, but sometimes it's more concerned with overloading your eyes and ears with color and sound than it is with trying new things gameplay-wise. You could even say it relies a little too much on the graphics and music instead of giving more depth to the game world and refining the suspect game camera. This is not to say that the graphics and music aren't worthy of such attention (because they are), but there were times in Jet Grind Radio when it needed just a touch more emphasis on making the game geniunely fun rather than making it just look fun. However, its high energy and outlandish vision are able to cover up for any holes a finicky gamer like me might find. Ultimately, Jet Grind Radio is another distinctive title from Sega, and one that could define what next generation games are all about.

The handheld version of Jet Grind Radio is vastly less ambitious than its console counterparts. It really can't even hold a candle to the recent Jet Set Radio Future. However, it doesn't help not to judge this title on its own merits. Obviously, the original concept had something going for it because even in its reduced state, Jet Grind Radio is fun. With an addictive soundtrack and a near verbatim translation of the story and gameplay, you'll find that all the praise Jet Grind Radio got for the Dreamcast is well deserved.

Pee-wee gang members skate throughout a shrunk-down future Tokyo in the GBA version of Jet Grind Radio. Vicarious Visions once again does the unthinkable with its impressive miniaturized version of Jet Grind Radio, which retains much of the visual style and gameplay of the Dreamcast cult classic right down to the custom graffiti editor that lets you create and use your own tags. Controlling various members of a street gang, you zip through the streets of a futuristic Tokyo on rocket-power inline skates while waging graffiti wars with gangs from other turfs and avoiding oppressive police forces.

I was always a big fan of the cell-shaded graphics in this game. They are really quite nice for Dreamcast, while still keeping up a good frame rate. I got this game as a gift, but I don’t think I would have bought it on my own. It is a very hard game and it took me forever to beat. I wouldn’t buy it, I know it’s definitely worth trying. I guess that’s why its on the official Dreamcast demo disk.

Game Boy AdvanceGameSpot
All in all, Jet Grind Radio is just as enjoyable on the GBA as it was on meatier consoles. The game’s 15 levels grow in size and difficulty at a reasonable pace. Early on, you have free run of large open areas that give you numerous chances to perform tricks, grind, and spray your tags. By the last few levels, you’ll need to transition between multiple neighborhoods during a single run and tag dozens of targets -- all while avoiding multiple SWAT teams, tanks, and helicopters. Every other level or so, you also have to deal with challenges from rival graffiti artists. If you can perform the moves they show you or beat them to a tag spot at the other end of the city, they’ll join your team. Each character has different speed, stamina, and spraying abilities, which means that new teammates are always welcome.

En definitiva, THQ y Vicarious Visions nos ofrecen la oportunidad de volver a disfrutar del genial Jet Set/Grind Radio de Dreamcast en cualquier momento y lugar, aunque las limitaciones del hardware hacen mella en algunos aspectos del juego, limitando la riqueza de los gráficos y sonido. Esto era difícilmente franqueable, pero si se hubiese cuidado más la jugabilidad ideando una distribución de los controles más inteligente, estaríamos ante un imprescindible de Game Boy Advance. Lamentablemente no es así, pero si te gustó el original deberías al menos darle una oportunidad a esta versión.

As I like to say, there are two words in the term “video game,” and you have to execute both well in order to be considered great. In this case, the “game“ portion can be trying almost as often as it is fun, and can be completed in one or two sittings with minimal replay value. But the “video” or “music video” portion of Jet Set Radio amounts to something so special that I think anyone who truly believes in the artistic potential of the medium should experience it. Players looking for a game with finely tuned mechanics and thrill-a-minute gameplay will want to look elsewhere. But fans of the original, or those wanting to engage in some funk-fueled civil disobedience should definitely take the ride.

Cette petite incursion de Jet Set Radio sur GameBoy Advance est en demi-teinte. On se réjouira de retrouver un gameplay et des sensations proches de l'opus original, ainsi qu'un contenu identique. Mais en parallèle les difficultés liées à la maniabilité et la 3D isométrique brident le joueur et le plaisir procuré par les parties, et impose un temps d'adaptation extrêmement long. Un titre plaisant pour le support, mais qui aurait beaucoup gagné à ne pas avoir existé sur Dreamcast (ce que bien sûr personne ne souhaite).

The original Jet Grind Radio on Sega Dreamcast introduced thousands of gamers to a graphic process known as cel shading (most recently seen on The Hulk). The striking visuals set a new standard for stylistic graphics and created a trend that continues to this very day in character design and animation. The Dreamcast game was also a heck of a lot of fun to play and had one of the best soundtracks money could buy (Jet Set Radio Future continued this trend on the Xbox ヨ ed). Vicarious Visions was tasked with bringing this classic to the Game Boy Advance handheld gaming system and while the feel of the original is intact, the gameplay suffers on the small screen.
