JSRF is set in 2024. A huge corporation has taken over Tokyo and bought the police. You play the skaters who are taking back the city . . . by tagging just about everything in sight. Okay, so it's not the most sophisticated plot in the world, but this is an amazingly fun game.
The gameplay is pure enjoyment. You pick a skater, then take on various sections of Tokyo, all of which are huge in scope, packed with human and vehicle traffic, and intricately designed. You'll find yourself grinding rails, staircases, power lines, and more. While grinding and skating, you pick up cans of spray paint, then use those cans to tag various buildings, vehicles, etc. Sometimes you are starting from scratch with the graffiti, and other times you are covering the tags of rival gangs.
In addition to tagging and grinding, you will find yourself fighting the corrupt police. You generally will come across the police in specific sections of the level or at the end, once you have completed all your tagging. To defeat the police you have to knock them over then spray paint their white uniforms, leaving them a huffing, puffing, multi-colored mess as they turn tail and run. Trust me--this is great fun. But don't slow down, or else the police will pile on you and drag you down and the chief, Hayashi, will take aim and shoot. (He's a bit crazy, and doesn't like you one bit.) Once your stamina is up, it's game over, so don't let the police drag you down.
In addition to the cops, you'll find yourself racing with fellow skaters to turn them into playable characters and battling with members of rival gangs, which often entails emulating a series of grinds.Read more ›
Lets be real. Today, eat console game you see that has a sports theme, besides one made by Nintendo, sports a medicore soundtrack, same dark and bland color theme, and does esentially the same thing. Jet Set Radio Future puts you into the shoes, or rollor blades, of someone and something a bit different. Sporting an excellent soundtrack you make your way around a huge city inspired by Current Day Pop Tokyo. The Colors used are bright and exciting and you can be assured when you play at least one thing in the game will give you a smile. The moves are simple enough to do and actually rather limited but that isnt the point of the game. You get points for moves but what you will find yourself doing most is either spraypainting walls for an objective or merely skating around while looking at the massive amount of detail that the developer put into this game. I would recommend this game to child or Adult alike. It is different and it is fun. I have logged over 70 hours in the game. Thats more than some multi-disked RPG games (FF7 took me 37 hours).
My personal experience on this game is very positive. I almost feel I owe it this review for the days I was able to spend on it. Days where life beats you down a knotch and you need a smile. This game, to this day, puts a big smile on my face when I play it. I just love it. How can you not? A developer created a game that is upbeat, positive, and extremely entertaining without using blood, gore, evil, or anything negetive found in most games now adays. Dont get me wrong, I am an advid Silent Hill Fanatic so I know my share of dark games, but sometimes you want to explore the polor opposite of things and Jet Grind Radio Future is always an awesome way to do it.
The graphics of JSRF is "cel-shaded". meaning it takes on a "cartoonish" look. the graphics run at 60 Frames Per second, meaning that you will never notice choppy gameplay. however, there is one place called "The Garage" where the game slows down to about 3 Frames a sec. but that is only one place where slowdown happens in the entire game. overall, they are pretty solid. 4/5
Tokyo 2024. there is a business man named Gouji Rokkaku who is buying off the police, government, etc. causing much smack to be laid down. you are new to a gang called the GG's. there are only 3 members, but there will be more. there are many rival gangs, but their name will not be important until you play the game. as a member of the GG's, you gotta keep track of your territory, keep the police away and keep rivals from spraying graffiti in your place. there are many twists in the story. 5/5
If you are confused about what you do in this game, you are a teen-ager in tokyo, 2024. you skate around with "roller blade" like skates. i think that they are magnetic, but that doesn't matter. JSRF is basically a skating/grafitti game. you skate around, covering rival gangs' tags and taking care of police men and police vehicles. the camera is in the 3rd person perspective, meaning there is a camera above your character's head. 3rd person games, usually have a problem with their camera and JSRF is no exception. however there is a camera reset button.Read more ›
