Excerpt: I'd like to think: "oh my god! its got slow motion in it! that is SO amazing", but i can't. So many games now have slow motion, its nothing new, plus it doesn't make a game good, i mean, look at Enter the matrix. That was a pile of Pig poo. But this is completely different. This is the plot: Joe is with his girlfriend-Silvia- at the movies watching 'Captain Blue' when suddenly, Silvia gets sucked into the film and kidnapped by the bad guy.

Summary: I bought this game christmas 2003 and since playing it- i was hooked. the first cell shade game i bought was XIII for GC and that changed the way i thought about cell shade. so i didn't regret buying this viewtiful game at all. The game is based on an average guy (joe) who is a frequent movie goer, his girlfriend get kidnapped by the forces of evil which in this case are characters from one of his favorite films.
