Here’s the bottom line if you don’t have time to read the full review:

Pros:

  • It’s definitely Jet Set Radio.
  • Retains the fast paced arcade style gameplay.

Cons:

  • 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.
