A La Tony Hawk!?!

To tell you the truth, I didn't like the Tony Hawk games very much. In fact after about an hour of that game I was ready to throw my Dreamcast, Nintendo 64, or Playstation across the room if I had to play any more of it!!! It wasn't that it was a bad game. It just had NO point to it WHAT SO EVER!!!! And that is why I didn't pre-order Jet Grind Radio right away. I thought right away that this would be the same this as Tony Hawk! Boy was I wrong! While Tony Hawk was about nothing but performing tricks, Jet Grind Radio is a game that takes place in the future!

Where the government has too much controll, and teenagers now have only one way to express themselves! No it's not music. It's graffity. You have to spray-paint your logo everywhere you go, while avoiding the cops, F.B.I, Air Force, assasins, and watch dogs!!! Sound fun yet? There's more. You can also creat your own logo's, get a bunch of new charicters to play around with, and perform tricks just by pressing the A-Button!!!

While Tony Hawk gets old very quickly Jet Grind Radio keeps you intrested till the end! [...] You can't go wrong!

Wiki

InJet Grind Radio, you play a whacked out kid who's completely torqued off about the system. It seems that the city of Tokyoto is not terribly kid-friendly and wants to keep things neat and pretty. You, the skater punk, figure that the only way to rebel is with your inline skates and a couple of cans of Krylon. That kind of attitude can lead to trouble when you're in the real world; but, in the world ofJet Grind Radio, there are no paint fumes, and it's all done in the name of fun and scoring points.

Jet Grind Radio's gameplay has some of the feel of Crazy Taxi. As you skate, you see little floating arrows that indicate where you should go (and where you should be tagging). Also, like in Crazy Taxi, the pace of the game is absolutely nonstop. There is moving traffic in the street, and nearly everything can be jumped, hopped, or ground. Underscoring all of this action is a DJ at the local hip-hop station, who spins cool tunes while you tear up Little Tokyoto.

The game starts out with a training course that's designed to bring you up to speed. Pay good attention to this section; it teaches you the basics, and you're tested on one of the lessons right away. Learning how to hop over obstacles while keeping a rail grind going is particularly helpful.

After graduating into the real game, you have the option of going it cool or easing up and figuring out how to do the flips, splits, and other midair antics that make this game so much fun. Once your skating skills are set, you'll ...
