Ahhh finally, for once i have found a retro throwback style game of something from my time, the olden days of the Sega Dreamcast and original Xbox and when people weren't **** about which platform they called the 'master race'.

Anyway, Hover Revolt Of Gamers is a 3rd person action adventure game trying to emulate the gameplay style of Jet Set Radio, the old Sega Dreamcast title from 1999.
You play from a wide range of characters but mostly the generic hooded Johnny Nobody you choose at the start. The story of the game is... well there really isn't one, you just go around doing random missions and quests for people.
The gameplay is pretty good, it actually feels like a modern version of Jet Set Radio for the Dreamcast. The world has a lot of bright colors and interesting designs going for it, and unlike a lot of other recent games, you have the ability to actually explore the world you are in.
The game also improves on it's predecessor, by having things like customizable characters and features like a rewind button and a dedicated button for grinding on rails, all things the previous game did not have.
The only real complaint i have with this game are the controls, for example, by default it doesn't detect controllers unless you go into the options menu and set the presets for which ever controller you have, the other issue i have is that sometimes it wouldn't register when i was hitting a certain button.
This would mean that in some places where it would tell me to jump and grind on a rail, only the jump would register and the grind wouldn't, i suspect it wants you to have exact timing on the buttons. One other issue i have with the game is the lack of a map system, this is a huge world map and i think the game would really benefit from having a map in the corner of the screen.
Aside from those issues, this game has a lot going for it, including the original soundtrack by Hideki Naganuma, the same man that did the music for Jet Set Radio and it's sequel on the original Xbox.
Overall, for $16USD i'd say wait a little bit and buy the game on sale.… Expand
