Product Description

Product Description

In the 21st century, the Tokyo city government bans kids from expressing themselves in any way. Only three things keep their spirits alive: Overdriver magnetic-motor skates, graffiti and a pirate radio broadcast called Jet Set Radio. Explore and, uh, decorate three fully interactive worlds where traffic moves at real time and pedestrians wander the streets. Watch out for police who will want to nab you for breaking the law and rival crews that want to deface your artwork. The "Cartoon Dimension" art style gives the appearance of a 2-D comic, but the characters move through it in complete 3-D. Animation runs at 30 frames per second. Ten characters are available at the outset; each has their own style and abilities.

Amazon.co.uk Review

In Jet Set Radio, you play the role of a whacked out kid who is completely torqued off about the system. It seems that the city of Tokyo to is not terribly "kid friendly" and they want to keep things neat and pretty. You, the skater punk, figure the only way to rebel is with your inline skates and a couple of cans of Krylon. That kind of attitude can lead to trouble when you are in the real world, but in the world of Jet Set Radio there are no paint fumes and its all done in the name of fun and scoring points.

Jet Set's gameplay has some of the feel of Crazy Taxi. As you skate you see little floating arrows that indicate where you should go (and where you should be tagging). Underscoring all of this action is a deejay at the local hip-hop station, who spins cool tunes while you tear up Little Tokyoto.

The game starts out with a training course designed to bring you up to speed. Pay good attention to this section; it teaches you the basics and you are tested on one of the lessons right away.

Once your skating skills are set, you will learn the spray can side of things, and manoeuvre around the city spraying to your hearts content.

Much about Jet Set Radio has "classic" stamped on it. With its fresh characters, cool design, great music and audio, and high replayability, Jet Set Radio is likely to lodge itself into the libraries of many Dreamcast owners. --Todd Mowatt

Yes you read it correctly this is the best game on Dreamcast by far. This game has everything, fantastic gameplay, super stylish graphics (still photos do not do the game justice), great sound and something which is always refreshing in todays world of sequels and updates.....originality. The game revolves around a gang of streetpunks called rudies. There are 4 groups of 'rudies' all fighting to control the streets of Tokyo-to by graffiting all over the place, all the characters are super stylish with their own skills. This game has one of the best soundtracks ever, probably on par with tony hawks, the tunes are all dance tunes which i usually dont like but the suit the game perfectly and deserve a mention in my review. The game also has online capabilities, you can download graffiti and post your top scores. All in all this is probably one of the best games ever and definatly the best game on dreamcast.

Sega does it again. I'm not sure how many more first class titles my bank balance can handle. Ferrari 355 Challenge, Metropolis Street Racer, Half Life and Shenmue to look forward to next week and Quake III, Unreal Tournament and Black & White on the horizon. Jet Set Radio is funny, original, has excellent graphics like nothing you've ever seen and incredible music, the quality of which easily surpasses anything else I ever heard in a video game. As with many of the new Dreamcast games, novice gamers may find the challenge set quite high, but after the first couple of levels, the gameplay suddenly clicks and you'll be pulling all the stunts you see in the game's intro before you know what's what. This game reminds me of the good old days of first class Sega games and marks a return to form for their in-house coding teams, who always were the best at producing risky, 'off-the-wall' titles. You'll never see anything like this on the PS2 - just a load of dumbed down, 'safe' sequels. Good job I cancelled my PS2 order in time, then.

... how good is this game? I bought the Jap import a couple of months ago and couldn't stop playing it. The graphics are amazing, the Japanese music is superb and the gameplay is great. My only gripe is with the camera system ('s a bit ropey) but hopefully this has been sorted out for the UK version. Plus, you get the bonus city and extra music tracks from Jurassic 5 with the PAL translation, which can only be a good thing.
Sega really have to stop releasing so many good games at once (M-SR, Shenmue, Samba de Amigo, Tony Hawks 2, Phantasy Star Online, Quake III - need I go on?) - my bank balance just can't cope anymore...
If you haven't got a Dreamcast already my advice is: buy one. Stuff the Playstation 2 - Computer games don't get any better than Sega.

when i took this game home my hands seemed to be glued to the Dreamcast controller because it was so fun to play.
You start off playing the part of a young skater named Beat, who wants to start his own gang of skaters, spraying graffiti on the streets of Tokyo-To to express himself to the world. It starts off easy - copying tricks from skaters Gum and Tab to recruit them to your gang, the GG's. But as you recruit more and more members and your offences become more serious, you get deeper into trouble, being chased by dangerous Asian killers, cops in choppers, and SWAT teams. Complete the three chapters, the fifteen levels, and eventually use your graffiti to save the world from a demon! It may sound ridiculous but it's probably the best ever dreamcast game! Buy it

Jet set radio oozes style, from the first moment you load the game up you will notes the games unique cell shaded look (jet set radio was the first game to use cell shaded graphics, of course it has been copied many times in games such as Zelda and viewtiful Joe) the game looks just like a cartoon and the cartoon look fits the game so well.
The whole idea of jet set radio is to skate around a area tagging walls sounds easy right? Well Sega have chucked in a load of police that really don’t like taggers. The first levels will start off easy you can easily out run the police as they are on foot but soon they will start sending in helicopters, dog’s, tanks and hit squads and you will have to plan how you are going to get around them and plan what walls you are going to tag first as some tags are larger and take longer to paint.
Although tagging is the main chunk of the game there’s loads more to do, some tasks you will be challenged by a potential new member to your crew, if you can complete the challenge you will have a new member, these challenges start off easy but soon you will be doing all kinds of grinds, flips and landings. Other tasks involve racing other crews through the massive levels, you will need to know all the short cuts in order to win and the final face off with the other crews involves tagging them, if you can tag all three members ten times each you will take there turf.
The level designs are great they range from roof tops to sewers to back streets to parks all the levels have loads of rails for grinding and short cuts all over the place, trust me you will need these short cuts to get away from the cops. The music is very well written, before you know it you will be humming the songs as you are playing and defiantly builds a great atmosphere.
