Just thought this game deserves a little discussion. There's gotta be more than a few fans of the original on DC, and let me just say that in my humble opinion, you need to buy an XBox for this game (if you haven't already). My primary reason for getting an XBox was for this game, and now that I've played it I feel totally justified in doing so. I'm sure a lot of people have read about the changes that have been made to JSRF's gameplay and are somewhat skeptical. I know I was. Even after playing the game for the first maybe half an hour, I was thinking "What the hell did they do?". But keep playing and the game really gets great. The game is sped up a great deal since you don't have to stop an do controller motions for large tags, and grinding surfaces and near infinite grinds are everywhere. Plus, outside of the normal stages where you have to tag certain points, each stage has certain challenges you can complete to get more graffiti souls, which leads to (as I understand) unlocking test runs for each stage where you can attempt to get a Jet rating. Smilebit's also seen it fit to throw in quite a few new gameplay elements as well, such as battling tanks, cops, and helicopters, and even a game that resembles Motorball from Gunnm. It doesn't hurt that the game usually runs at a smooth 60 fps and the soudtrack is as good as ever, more diversive than the first but still retaining the indie-alternative feel. Definitely check it out if you have the chance.
