I have to be honest: After this game nearly vanished in late 2015 and was delayed a couple of times, I was pretty sure, this would gonna be a good, but mediocre Third-Person Shooter with some time-travelling mumbo-jumbo and some sort of a mini-series with real actors included. So, my expectations were down to zero. As I started playing, it took not even half an hour to completely proof me wrong. Remedy delivers a visual masterpiece with some of the most creative and stunning imagery and levels I have ever seen on screen, thanks to objects and lights frozen in time. This adds to some really exciting and interesting characters and a good story about time travelling that stays within its own logic - as far as this genre allows logical explanations. I also liked the concept of the mini-series, that adds a lot to the game's story and has a really good production value with some decent effects and acting. At the same time, I understand people not liking to put the controller away for nearly half an hour and just watch things happen and add to the story.

Pure insanity and madness, combined with Jet Set Radio - that's what I'd describe this game to my friends. I had so many people watching me play this game and the most common reaction was: "I have no clue what you are doing, but man does this look fun!" This pretty much sums up most part of this game: It feels like Insomniac Games just built a giant sandbox full of colors and added as many "Wouldn't-it-be-totally-crazy-if"-ideas as possible. This is pure anarchy as a game with some of the best punkrock music and a great artstyle seen in a long time. There's so much to do and such great humor that you nearly forget that most parts of the game start to get pretty repetitive at times.
