Created and developed by 3 young independent developers, "Hover: Revolt of Gamers" is a futuristic 3D parkour game in an openworld. Halfway between the crazy universe from Jet Set Radio, the interactivity of Mirror's Edge and inspired by movies like the 5th Element or Star Wars ; "Hover: Revolt of Gamers" takes place in another world where you're in charge of a band of Gamers revolting against anti-video-games laws oppressing the city.
You'll have to free the citizen restrained by authorities, localise and then infiltrate anti video games propaganda control centers, retrieve gaming consoles confiscated from the population to overthrow the new Mayor, who is the cause of this mess.
You can join your friends online at any time and progress throughout the adventure in their company, wether you are cooperating or working against them. Participate in races created in real time by the community as well.
Wherever you are and what you are doing in the city, running around or in the middle of a mission, it'll be possible to connect to a server, instantly switching to multiplayer.
While the game pretends to be some sort of evolution of jet grind radio its more of a trashy e-sport with clunky controls. Why they got hideki to do the soundtrack is beyond me because the flow of the game is tedious and empty, not fast and fun. The game has more in common with mirrors edge than jet set radio future and honestly even falls short of that, they are adding stealth missions and theres alot of walking around "scanning" nonsense when you arent using the rewind button (no really a rewind button..) to undo the mistakes you make because the controls are rubbish! When do you ever remember sneaking around in jet grind radio? Its just insulting that they think stealing the art direction gives them the right to use the name to sell their game (theres not even any vert!). Dont get fooled like i did, give it a miss.. unless bouncing around a pretty much empty world doing the same handfull of tricks OVER AND OVER is high on your list of things to accomplish with your time.
First thing that I and likely many others thought when first seeing this game is that it looked like a Jet Set Radio game. It's got the radical characters, the parkour, the "breakin' the law" mentality, and the totally tubular 90's attitude. But this time, the stakes are higher. Basically, the government is oppressing video games. Jet Set Video Game Savior. Definitely a must buy.
