Here’s the bottom line if you don’t have time to read the full review:
- It’s definitely Jet Set Radio.
- Retains the fast paced arcade style gameplay.
- Bad controls.
- Poorly looped tunes.
- Unbalanced difficulty.
- Lazy gameplay with glitches and bad added dialogue.
Final Score: 5/10
Ultimately though, if you need a pocket-sized dose of Jet Set Radio and don’t have a PlayStation Vita to play the HD remake, this can give you that quick hit of Tokyo-to. Ultimately, it’ll just leave you pining for the real thing, though. I feel like I disliked playing this game about as much as the developers disliked making it.
