Viewtiful Joe: Red Hot Rumble
3 July 2010
Excerpt: Capcom brings it's take on the Smash Bros. craze to the PSP this spring with Viewtiful Joe: Red Hot Rumble. With a diverse cast of characters including every goth girl's fantasy, Dante from Devil May Cry, and all the other loveable Joe characters this crazy fighting game could end up being a real sleeper hit. Find out if Capcom can make up for the awful Onimusha brawler it released on the PS2 with this intense handheld fighter.
Excerpt: Viewtiful Joe: Red Hot Rumble may have been the third Viewtiful Joe game released on the GameCube, but those expecting Viewtiful Joe 3 were in for a rude awakening as this was a break in tradition for Joe and company. Instead of the usual puzzle and fighting crossover, Red Hot Rumble was focussed on competitive fighting instead, and now the colourful action bursts onto Sony’s stylish portable.
Excerpt: Viewtiful Joe: Red Hot Rumble is like a gorgeous girl who doesn't take herself too seriously, likes to drink beer, and thinks pizza is God's gift to mankind. If you've never met a girl like this, you must be drinking beer and ordering your pizza from the wrong joint, baby! There's good and bad to this formula, and while we may quibble about the style of play, there's no denying that VJ: Red Hot Rumble comes on strong with some unique, anime-styled visuals.
Excerpt: Viewtiful Joe burst onto the gaming scene a few years back with a fresh look and immensely fun gameplay. The side-scrolling action game, which saw Joe bust out plenty of slick moves, became a must-have title for the GameCube. With Joe's popularity now warranting a Viewtiful Joe cartoon series (not that I've seen it on TV) it's no surprise that the franchise is being spun off into slightly new directions.
Excerpt: Capcom makes another colorful entry on the PSP with Viewtiful Joe: Red Hot Rumble. The game sets out to provide a lot of different gameplay varieties, and in that it succeeds. Unfortunately, the game ends up being way too confusing way too often. The game’s simplicity starts with its story: Captain Blue has decided to direct a movie and is looking for someone to star. So he sets up a series of battles for all the would-be performers to compete.
Excerpt: Ever since I saw the first screenshots of a VJ game when it was first announce as part of the infamous Capcom 5 I knew it was a franchise I’d love. I had planned to buy the game long before I knew how it played just because I liked the look of what I saw. Thankfully, the gameplay lived up to the delightfully colourful screen and the first VJ tuned out to be a critical success (and one of my favourite games of all time).
