    If you are willing to let the issue of controls pass, then you will be presented with one exciting and beautiful game.

    I am surprised it took Sega this long to release an HD port of the critically acclaimed Jet Set Radio. Then again, the company has made some disappointing decisions in my opinion, such as the stupid March 2013 delay for ... Read Full Review
