UTV Review: Jet Set Radio HD

Twelve years ago Smilebit, the Sega team set up with the aim of bringing "joy and smile into the whole world", did just that with the all-action Jet Set Radio.

It was a story of youthful rebellion in a near-future Japan, where gangs of spray-can toting teens roam Tokyo-to on magnetically-driven rollerskates, marking their turf while fending off rivals and dodging a police force intent on crushing street culture.

The game was a unique and exciting creation, blending the 3D platform and extreme sports genres with sumptuous cartoon visuals and an eclectic, hardcore soundtrack.

It dropped jaws in 2000 and now - remixed in widescreen HD with dual analogue controls - it does so all over again, proving it can be fun to watch paint dry. (Jet Set Radio HD, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 5/5
