  • Excerpt: "...graphics are just for kids, Viewtiful Joe is out to prove you wrong. This is as stylish, challenging and just downright original a game as you’re going to find. Take a cheesy plot where Joe’s girlfriend is sucked into a camp old action flick and he has to dive into the movie world to save her, filling in for his old hero Captain Blue. Add some great ideas like the VFX that allow you to slow down the action bullet-time style, turbo charge Joe with ...
  • Pros: A truly innovative title, Stylised graphics, Amusing, Very challenging
  • Cons: May be too hard for some, Voice acting in cut - scenes can be hard to make out

Life is Viewtiful in Viewtiful Joe

  • Excerpt: "I first saw this game on television ("Gamer Tv" I think) and thought that it looked quite original and different from other games I played. From the moment I first played it, I fell in love with teh eye-popping technicolor graphics and the clever use of cel-shaded animation. The gameplay is repetetive linear, but there's something appealing and enjoyable about the old school style beat-em up gameplay. The time control features are great and show off ...
  • Pros: Amazing graphic style full of colour, slick and frantic gameplay .
  • Cons: Slightly short (play it on hard mode and it will last much longer though)

  • Excerpt: "...moment Clover studio brought out Viewtiful Joe was a godsend in my opinion. Ironically, it became such a popular game that a sequel is now available and there will also be a third and last Viewtiful Joe. The moment you start your adventure it is the graphics that will catch your eye first. They are unusual, cartoony cell shaded graphics that mixes between 2D and 3D images. The visuals are amazing and I can honestly say that you will have never ...
  • Pros: Originality, excellant gameplay, visually jaw dropping
  • Cons: None

  • Excerpt: "...companies. Their main franchise is Viewtiful Joe but they are making games like Okami and God Hand. Unfortunately Clover will no longer make games from the end of March 2007. It's a shame because Clover's games are great. -(History Of Viewtiful Joe)- Back in 2003 Capcom and Clover Studio's released Viewtiful Joe for the Gamecube. It cleverly mixed Polygons with a 2D background. It was originally released for the Gamecube only but a year later ...
  • Pros: Superb visuals; pretty hefty amount of replay value; funny dialogue; great VFX powers .
  • Cons: Quite short clocking in at only 8 hours; sometimes frustrating .

  • Excerpt: "...of praise for the original Viewtiful Joe (VJ for the rest of this review) The lead character in the game is VT who is clad in a tight red suit which leaves little to the imagination and the same can be said for the other character in the game his girlfriend Sylvia. Basically what you have is a good old fashioned brawler of a game however it comes with some excellent effects and fight scenes. The controls are easy to master and this was one ...
  • Pros: Great action play
  • Cons: Quite hard to get to the end .

  • Excerpt: "...powers you have to be Viewtiful Joe! This plot will certainly appeal to anyone younger than 8 but older people like me will probably not care and just play the game as normal regardless. Nevertheless enough of plot lets talk about the games many great features! The graphics are a recently new sort known as cell shading and looks rather stylish on your TV set as well when compared to the modern style 3D visuals of other games. Still even though ...
  • Pros: Cool VFX Powers, Stylish presentation, Very challenging
  • Cons: Cheese laden voice acting

  • Summary: If I could I'd give it a 4 1/2 stars, but 4 is close enough. Fun, fast paced action, cool cel-shaded graphics, and it's pretty funny to boot. Overall I recommend this to everyone. Though not quite perfect, it's very fun.

Im Spiel wird Joes Freundin im Kino von einem großen schwarzen Roboter entführt und direkt in den Film verschleppt . Doch nicht nur das sie entführt wird auch Joe wird in den Film gesogen . Die Grafik dabei ist eine Comic Darstellung . Und die ist sehr nett gemacht . Mir hat es sehr gut gefallen .
