Summary

PlayStation version was better

The Good

Jet Moto for Windows is really good. The one thing that its developers like to brag about is its "true physics" design. "True physics" means that all of the laws of physics apply to this game. I thought thought that it was OK to have, but it made it a little more difficult for me to grasp its full potential. The tracks are well thought out, and I liked that. The jet moto things were awesome. I loved the fact that each of them was sponsored by some major company, like Mountain Dew. It kinda got you more psyched up for the next race. I think that the music was good at that to.

The Bad

I think that the detail level was really low. In order to make it look better, you had to put it on a lower screen resolution, probably about the same as a PlayStation. The tracks were unreasonably hard. You can't stop at all, otherwise you crash. The computer opponents are really hard to beat, even in the easiest mode. I didn't like that fact that you had to beat the game at the professional level of play to put in the cheat codes (if can beat the whole game, why would you need cheat codes anyway?).

The Bottom Line

The tracks are cool, the music is great, and the jet motos are awesome. What more could you ask for? If you have a PlayStation, this game would be OK, but if you have a PC, this game is not as good. Get it only if you really, really liked the original PlayStation version.
