Viewtiful Joe 2 (Gamecube) Review

Vooks
1 April 2005
  • Excerpt: The sequel to Viewtiful Joe, Viewtiful Joe 2 sees Joe teaming up with his girlfriend Silvia to take down the Black Emperor. Not an overly inspired storyline, but hey, it is a sequel. The game itself is not much different from Viewtiful Joe, so fans of the original will be in love. That being said, the game isnt quite as good as the first.

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

Viewtiful Joe

Gaming Evolution
16 January 2005
  • 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: It's no secret to Gamecube owners that the little cube-that-could needs a few more top-notch titles on its resume. So lets just get it out of the way right now and say that Viewtiful Joe rocks. Beautiful graphics and stunningly fun gamplay are just the beginning to this Capcom title. Click here to see how 2D side-scrolling beat-em-ups ought to be done.

Viewtiful Joe (Gamecube) Review

Vooks
24 October 2003
  • Excerpt: A fairly new series by Capcom, Viewtiful Joe sees Silvia, Joes girlfriend, kidnapped by the evil King Blue and taken into a movie. Joe is then transported into the movie himself, where he becomes a superhero. Not the most inspired plot ever (its a very 80s idea) but Viewtiful Joe is a classy game, worthy of purchase by anyone who likes beat-em-ups.
