Impulse Gamer (Oct, 2012)
Free of nostalgia blinkers, Jet Set Radio is a good game but certain aspects haven’t aged as well as the graphical style. It can be an extremely difficult experience when hampered by the control issues, and some occasions of frustrating level design, plus a distinct lack of gameplay variety, can drive you to pull your hair out. That being said, it’s also extremely fun, addictive and stylish as all heck, and I for one am willing to take a little bit of bad in order to experience the cornucopia of excellence that comes with the game.

If you are willing to let the issue of controls pass, then you will be presented with one exciting and beautiful piece of gaming history, and one of Sega’s crown jewels from the Dreamcast era. Fans who want to play Jet Set Radio again will have no problem with this HD release – unless you were expecting a remake. For people who have never played it and want to know what the fuss is about, you might not fully appreciate why this game was so damn cool back in 2000, but at least you get to listen to the brilliant music and take in all the pleasant visuals. That still leaves you with a win-win situation in my book.

If nothing else, hope for a digital release of the game’s sequel. Jet Set Radio is something you simply need to experience.

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.

Sega hat sich auf den ersten Blick Mühe mit der HD-Umsetzung von Jet Set Radio gegeben: Die Cel Shading-Kulisse ist dank der höheren Auflösung und Breitbild-Darstellung noch eine Spur schicker, zumal alte Probleme wie Pop-ups und Kantenflimmern nahezu beseitigt wurden. Daneben hat man die Soundqualität verbessert, so dass Dialoge und die coolen Musiktracks noch klarer durch die Boxen dröhnen. Doch leider wurde versäumt, neben der Technik auch die Spielmechanik aufzupolieren: Die ungenaue Steuerung sorgt im Zusammenspiel mit der grausigen Kamera immer wieder für Frust. Auch die eintönigen Schauplätze und die immer gleichen Aufgaben ernüchtern. Ja, Jet Set Radio hat seinen Beitrag in der Videospielgeschichte geleistet, Cel Shading salonfähig gemacht und die japanische Kreativität hinsichtlich ungewöhnlicher Spielkonzepte untermauert. Doch die Faszination von damals ist mittlerweile verschwunden, der Pionier-Bonus verpufft und die Spielmechanik überholt.
