    It's complete. It's the sequel to the game you loved on the Dreamcast. It's the [​IMG] JSRF Appreciation Thread [​IMG]

    Since I don't think this game is being hyped enough, here is a look back at the first game in the series, which none of you bought because it was on the Dreamcast: [​IMG]

    "This game looks simply incredible. The characters and environments aren't made up of that many polygons, but the smooth animation and an amazing use of cel shading (which places a black outline around some of the polys, giving them an almost hand-drawn look - expect to see lots of games stealing this effect in the near future) make the whole greater than the sum of its parts. The game's sound effects and music match the high marks earned by the graphics. The effects, while mostly consisting of grinding noises and the whoosh of spray-paint cans doing their thing, are well done, and the music is an amazing collection of hip-hop beats that fit the action perfectly." -Gamespot

    "For sheer fun, playability, and originality it just doesn't get any better than Jet Grind Radio." -SegaWeb

    EBGames.com is still showing the regular release date. I've never known Amazon.com to be accurate on release dates for any of their products.

    EB moved their release date back a week, from the 19th to the 26th, but it's all just a guessing game anyway.

    I'll confess to taking an age to get around to buying the DC original. Lets hope that the demo is really good this time - I played the original demo, thought 'ooh thats pretty' and completely failed to see how it could sustain an entire game. It does though...

    Here's another review:
    Games Domain
    I also read that the Famitsu scores may be fake & that Edge may have given the game a 6 out of 10. (d'oh!)

    Iain, are you referring to the Edge score? I don't see that mag here in the US...I take it they are notoriously harsh?

    Edge haven't reviewed it yet - I've got the latest issue sitting here & it isn't in there... I too heard those Famitsu scores were made up. Not the first time some dweeb has done that.

    Edge is "harsh" but you can't compare their scoring system as they aim to use the full 1-10 scale. An average game gets 5/10. Games that regularly get 90%+ elsewhere get 7/10.

    They got a LOT of stick for giving GTA3 8/10 & Smash Brothers 6/10.

    I think they were totally justified in giving Smash Bros a 6/10. It's weak compared to Power Stone 2, a superior game in every way. If Smash didn't have Nintendo mascots no one would bother

    I have the original Japanese Jet Set Radio for Dreamcast, and my only fear about JSRF is that most of the music is Americanized, from what I have read. Hopefully it won't be as bad as the JGR-Rob Zombie farce....and hopefully JSRF is DD5.1 and 480p [​IMG]
    Has anyone heard about JSRF's surrond sound and prog. scan support??

    Edge are usually harsh but fair, and seem to be on a real 'slap it down for not doing anything new' kick at the moment, but they are far ahead of the rest of the reviews out there. I bought issue 107 (with the Atari cover) a few weeks ago, so I assumed that the 6/10 rumour was for the yet to be published 108.

    The thing to remember when looking at Edge scores is that there have only been 4 times a game has got 10 in all those issues, so it really means something.

    But an 8 for GTA3? Anything less than 9 is criminal...

    Gamespot has had a similarly small number of perfect 10's (what are the titles that have gotten that rating from The Edge?), and I usually agree with their reviews, even if ocassionally they are a bit harsh.
