PlayDevil: Jet Set Radio (XBLA) Review

Is Jet Set Radio best left in the past?

Here is a snippet:

"Unfortunately the gameplay and camera are the one element of Jet Set Radio that feels stuck in 2000. Responses to button presses feel sluggish and locking onto grind rails is overly tricky, and inconsistent. More problematically, the camera control often seems to actively work against you, especially in boss battles, as the perspective is forced into walls and above the character. Even in this update, that has camera control on the second stick, it is still frustrating and more difficult than it need be. It is an interesting reminder of how far gaming has come in the last thirteen years, but no less frustrating." (Jet Set Radio, Xbox 360) 70/100
