Viewtiful Joe

Into Liquid Sky
26 February 2005
  • Excerpt: There are times when you just can't help but love Capcom for what they do. Yes, there are times (the questionable camera in Dino Crisis 3 or their nasty habit of porting any Street Fighter title to any and all consoles, no matter how old the game is) where you want to strangle someone of importance. But when Capcom does things right, they do it all the way.
  • Pros: Great stylish look, Fighting never gets old, Addictive yet challenging
  • Cons: If you're not a brawler fan, you may just want to rent

  • Conclusion: Viewtiful Joe is definitely a must get for the GCN, because of its wacky side scrolling beat ‘em up action! It adds a whole new factor to the GCN unlike we have ever seen before! With smooth animations and an awesome hero, who wouldn't want to say "Henshin-a-go-go baby!" after playing this game! Well, this wraps up yet another one of my reviews, I hope to see you again soon!

  • Excerpt: I recently had a discussion with some random Internet person (seriously) about the practice of rehashing in games. Essentially, he/she defended a specific game’s plagiarism by pointing out that very little is original anymore. Though I agree with that sentiment to a degree, I also think there’s a difference between unabashedly ganking someone’s ideas verbatim and combining different aspects with the intention of making something unique and enjoyable.

  • Excerpt: There is an interesting tendency amongst gamers lately. Older games get popular again; on e-bay games that are no longer in production, especially so for an obsolete system, are sold at prices that most people would have called insane only a few years ago. The buyers are often not collectors but “normal” gamers like you and me that simply miss something in nowadays' games: innovation and variety. But why do we see not much innovation lately?

  • Cons: The genius of the game won't be apparent right away, rewarding the patient., There's pink all over the place. Be careful if you're allergic.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Odd as it may seem, a smattering of Japanese pervades what would otherwise be an almost entirely English game. Even now, almost a month after its Japanese release, the title remains a highly recommended import. With its Western debut set for October, there remains plenty of incentive to pick it up now.
