Summary: Man this game's hard to find! As much as I love Viewtiful Joe, I have to say I'm really disappointed with this one game. Yeah, it's got REALLY good graphics, and Joe's got these cool new powers, but the game is EXTREMELY SHORT. I beat the story in two days, so you might beat it in much less time if you're a hardcore gamer. It's bare bones: just a game, one character, three difficulties, and once you beat it the game's over.
Summary: From his first appearance on the GameCube several years back Viewtiful Joe has always been kind of an odd bird. The art style is completely unique in video games and the gameplay has a real charm to it. It was obvious pretty early on that Viewtiful Joe was going to be a different kind of franchise if for nothing more than the bizarre name of the title character. The series has a spectacularly satisfying fighting engine that never grows old.

Summary: This game captures the feel of the "2003 USA Today Game of the Year" original and it's sequel gloriously. Now multiply it by two. Double Trouble does what no other DS game has done so far and displayed 2 views of the same action in 3D. In truth, we could have done with out it and doubled the frame rate of the bottom screen but alas, it is still a great game. This is a very impressive game graphically.
Summary: Viewtiful Joe was critically acclaimed for its originality when it came out on the Gamecube several years ago. It took action games back to their side-scrolling roots while introducing a flavor not tasted by gamers for years with its simple but difficult fighting. With the third VJ game, Viewtiful Joe: Double Trouble, the touch screen features and audio downfalls of the DS console really hurt the experience.
