The lights are on
"Cel shading" is a term that's been tossed around frequently for over a decade, but gamers in the 90s had never heard of the unique graphical style. With the 2000 release of Jet Grind Radio, the style that would go on to be used in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and many more games was popularized.
How does the goofy, graffiti-stained title hold up thirteen years later? Check it out below in the new episode of Replay, complete with a Roulette segment that some of our bigger fans have been calling for for quite some time.

Loved that intro Reiner! And thanks a bunch for the dedicated episode. I remember enjoying the hell out of this game, but it did get frustrating I'll agree with you there.
And that roulette, makes me so happy! I actually recently beat it, don;t know why the heck I played it. I would love to see that as the 12/31 Super Replay. Thanks again GI crew for the great Replay.
Gotta love the JSR universe and its games...
makes me want to bust out the old dreamcast and play some jgr.
One of the many games that desperately needs a modern day remake. It would probably be riddled with Skrillex and dubstep but....
This looks like the best choice for SR as long as you guys figure out how to play it beforehand.
I used to love this game despite being just awful at it, really not sure if I could handle it now.
It's weird how much I like the game, despite not being able to play it well.
so idk if that sr should be done or not , on 1 hand it looks insane and i couldn't stop laughing at certain things , but damn that looks like it might be rougher to watch than cyberia 1 was
Hasn't this already been on a GIO video somewhere?
SUPER REPLAY Sudgestion: Playin this classic sega game got me thinking, You guys have done a few Mario titles as well as classic Nintendo, where is the Really old school Sega Classic Love!?! Sonic in particular. My Reccomend is that you guys do a super replay of Sonic CD, the reissue on xbla is gorgeous, it is the un sung best Sonic game which kinda encompasses all that the creator wanted, it is the held back true sequal to Sonic 1, but went unplayed cause it was on the godawful Sega CD, I figure this game gives You guys an opportunity to play a Sonic game which most of you have no experience with thus fresh eyes. Pro Tip: Time travel !!! Also VERY IMPORTANT: SWITCH the soundtrack in the options to U.S. both are good, but you game tune fans will be in for a treat, I believe this is actually the Sonic game Michael Jackson unoficially worked on, devs claim it was 3 but listen to the music, I think the dev was mistranslated (maby meant the 3rd sonic game which technically this was)
