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.
