Throwback Thursday: Looking Back at Jet Grind Radio

Looking back at a great game; Jet Grind Radio

Jet Grind Radio is a fantastic game that revolves around a character spraying graffiti. Originally revealed at the Tokyo Game Show of 1999 this game gained massive amounts of praise initially for the revolutionary cel shaded design. 

Originally launched on the Dreamcast, Jet Grind Radio was praised as a game in general. As players skated around the digitized Tokyo they would spray paint graffiti. While doing so they would also try to speed around town in a quick manner by hitching rides with passing cars, grinding on rails, and even utilizing other environmental means. 

Jet Grind Radio had a sequel that was later launched as a downloadable title on consoles. The ability to play the game on a newer console was nice, but there is nothing quite as satisfying as playing the game on the console you remember so well. Jet Grind Radio had an amazing soundtrack to match the beautiful game and should not be missed by anyone. 

If you ever find yourself looking to boot up an old game on the Dreamcast look no farther than Jet Grind Radio. Any player that played this in early 2000's will be quick to tell you it was a game that stole their hearts.

    I love this game. I love this game so much I could punch a stranger. It's traditionally been my biggest "game to take on a trip" along with Sonic Adventure 2 and Project Justice. My Dreamcast is my console of choice when going out of town, for sure.

    JSRF was really good too, but JSR itself has a special place in my heart.
