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.
Jet Set Radio est un titre inter-générationnel qui revient pour notre plus grand plaisir sur les plates-formes actuelles. Malgré ses 12 ans d'âge il n'a pas pris une ride sur de nombreux aspects, à commencer par sa bande-son qui surpasse de loin 95% des titres parus depuis. On aurait sans doute espéré un peu de contenu supplémentaire, mais ceux qui n'y ont jamais joué ne devraient pas se priver, surtout pour 10 euros !
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.
