Summary: This is perhaps, the most original game i've seen in a long time, and guess what-it came from Capcom! Viewtiful Joe see's Joe taking on the role of superhero, after being sucked into the world of movies to rescue his kidnapped girlfriend. Other than that, there isn't much else to the storyline, but then i don't think the emphasis of this game is on the story, but rather the gameplay.
Summary: I Have to agree with all the other reviews on this game. it has one of the most amazing graphics ever and has an addictive gameplay. there are dozens of special moves to be pulled of in this game and loads of unlokables which means that you would be comming back for more and more. With the ability to use the special effects which are used in movies (SLOW, ZOOM-IN and MACH SPEED) its almost like creating your own fight scene in a movie.
Summary: This is a great innovational title which really does remind you of how gaming used to be! The 2D style mixed with 3D elements works effortlessly, and the fighting techniques are very fluid and easy to learn, before you know it you will be fighting with beautiful...sorry viewtiful style! This title is fresh and welcomed to the slowly repetetive market of today. This game brings style, substance and a bit of Retro to your living room.
Summary: Dont be fooled by Joe's old school appearances. Yes he double-jumps along 2D platforms grabbing floating power-ups and heart-refilling hamburgers. But underneath these more traditional conventions lies incredibly deep, state of the art gameplay. Joe grabs the classic beet-em-up by the throat, smashes it into a mega man-style side-scrolling action game, and double round house kicks them both into completely new territory.
Summary: this is the best game i have ever played in my life i love the charecters like link bowser samus and nightmare. they are the best the game requiers a lot of skill and speed if you wto keep up with the other players.
Summary: I got this game mainly cos it was made by my Capcon and not knowing what 2 expect as what you read in magazines is nothing 2 what u see when u play as it is a different experience 2 any game and this is what makes it the best game on the market at the moment. The story is you r Joe.You r a massive old movie fan and your favorite hero is CAPTIN BLUE. You like 2 see movies with your girlfriend Silvia.
Summary: First thing that came to my head when I saw it was 'At last! A pal game with decent cover art!' Trust me, that happens rarely. The game is your basic side scroller beat-em-up in a similar style to Final Fight and Streets of Rage. There is nothing more I can say about the game that no-one has said already so I go straight to my opinion. Many have mentioned that the game is hard which it is, but it never frusates.
Summary: well, what an extraordinary game. right from the beginning it pulls you in. You are Joe hapless hero searching for his missing girlfriend who has been sucked into a film. With a little help from your hero captain blue, Joe is on his way. You have powers that speed up action, slow it down and zoom in for the ultimate posing! the idea is to complete each stage as viewtifully as you can ( a meter lets you know how well you are doing).
Summary: Smartypants 70 obviously has some serious issues with gamecube. One does not welcome derrogatory comments on a game, which is blatantly obvious, he hasn't played. The anology to Blinx on the Xbox is irrelevant as the time control system is completely different. Viewtiful Joe is in a class of its own, it is a classical game of epic proportions. Time can be manipulated to pull off amazing manouveres with psychadelic effects.
