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. 5/5
