Summary: This game has everything you love about VJ previous games, excellent graphics, over the top voice acting and animation, lots of humor BUT... gameplay is so chaotic that its very hard to enjoy playing it, its like the designers tried to put all kind of stuff in a "smash bros." kind of game. I've been playing the game for 3 weeks now, but I am unable to enjoy it more than 10 minutes!
Summary: This and Tekken: Dark Resurrection are the best handheld games ever made!!! There are 21 characters and my faves are Coordinator Sprocket, Sexy Silvia, Viewtiful Joe and Charles the Third. Everyone got unique moves and weapons. Viewtiful Joe got flame-based attacks, Blue Jr got his dual yo-yos, Sexy Silvia got her guns, Sprocket got her Bianky henchmen, Alastor got his sword etc. The graphics are also really good and flashy.
Summary: Viewtiful Joe is a side scrolling beat-em-up that debuted on the Gamecube. IT was alter ported to the PS2, adding Dante from Devil May Cry as a playable character. It was a very stylish game that incorporated the fact that the characters were literally inside a movie into the gameplay (slow motion and mach speed powers, etc). It also had a sequel, Viewtiful Joe 2, and a handheld sequel , Viewtiful Joe: Double Trouble for the DS. It even had an anime series!
