Atari Australia Press Quotes - Xbox:
""HOLY #^&$@ing god, this game is one of the most beautiful games at the show. Imagine the original Jet Set Radio with absolutely no noticeable slowdown or draw-in at double the resolution with really, really clean lines, and you'll get to the core difference noticed at first glance. JSRF looks so clean and smooth, you really need to watch our video collection to get a feel for how different the experience really is."

Back of Box (U.S./Canada):
"Another big difference is the fact that the overall speed of the game is a LOT faster. Tearing through the city really conveys a good sense of speed, and the game's coolest new feature is a some sort of speed burst that totally helps push the pace to insane levels. " IGN Online
“When this sequel to Dreamcast style-sensation Jet Set Radio was shown at US game show E3 last spring, it made something of an impact. Quite frankly, it’s one of the most beautiful games ever made.” Australian Xbox Magazine
"JSRF drips with style in every possible way. It's a brilliant game, but at times it's more challenging than it is fun. 90%" - Gamespy
"The stages found in JSRF go a long way towards justifying Smilebit's decision in using the Xbox to bring their vision to fruition. Referring to the new areas as "larger than before" hardly gets the point across; more like MASSIVE" - Gamerslogik.com
"The graphics for JSRF are the cornerstone of its style. The huge levels do nothing less than put the player square in the middle of a bustling and living city. Pedestrians walk and drive about. Groups gather in front of store windows and jump out of your way when you fly by on your skates. Maybe I should say "glide by" because the character animations are so fluid that you will become the skater. " - Zen Gamer
"Sound is another area that defines this game. The 30 tracks of funky, fast music will further envelop you in the style of the title. Almost every one of the songs is fast and fun, but there is at least one that will make you want to run your fingernails down a chalkboard to drown out the sound. It's amazing that a soundtrack this good found its way into a game. For icing on the cake, you can listen to it in full Dolby 5.1 glory." - Zen Gamer
"Cel-shading is here to prove the critics wrong. This game is beautiful and full of color and style. A musical and graphical feast, you will find yourself grinding away hours with this highly polished title. Money well spent. 9/10" - Zen Gamer
" Jet Set Radio Future's environments are easily the most impressive aspect of the game. 88%" - Hyper Magazine
“…JSRF is a delight to play and the epitome of style.” “Jet set down to your local store and tag yourself a copy.” - Australian Personal Computer
“…fantastic cel-shaeded graphics and great tunes by some serious talent…” “…huge and well designed…” - PC Powerplay
