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.
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

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.
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
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.Read more ›
