Viewtiful Joe 2


A follow up to the quirky, critically acclaimed Viewtiful Joe, Viewtiful Joe 2 is likewise acclaim-worthy.

A follow up to the quirky, critically acclaimed Viewtiful Joe, Viewtiful Joe 2 is likewise acclaim-worthy, offering more off-beat characters and side-scrolling super-heroics in highly stylish, cell-shaded, movie-spoofing and otherwise caricatured...

Viewtiful Joe 2


If you thought things were done after Joe rescued Silvia from Movieland in the first Viewtiful Joe, you were sadly mistaken! Joe has now become an action hero for good, only this time he's not alone. Sylvia, the damsel in distress from the first title,...

Viewtiful Joe


I was idly standing by the GameCube section when I noticed an interesting game on the screen. I didn't know what it was called, but I saw a side-scrolling game with comic-style graphics. Some kid was intensely pounding away at the controls, and the...

Viewtiful Joe 2 Review


Viewtiful Joe 2 shows that an old genre like the 2D action/adventure/brawler still has a little life left in it when executed with some play-enhancing flair.

Viewtiful Joe 2


Henshin a Go Go Baby!” Joe and his extraordinarily viewtiful powers are back in a brand new adventure, this time hitting both the Gamecube and PS2 within a short timespan. We've already reviewed the Gamecube version – how does the PS2 edition stack up?...

Fast and fun gameplay ; Excellent level design ; Crisp graphics

Not much improvement over existing formula ; Minor framerate dips

Everyone who has played Viewtiful Joe should pick this up. Those that haven't should play the original game and then immediately pick its sequel up.

Viewtiful Joe 2


As viewtiful as ever.

The key to making Viewtiful Joe 2 special is that the action does more than just encourage you to pound on the buttons until all the enemies are gone. The more stylishly you can dispatch your foes, the more points you'll earn for buying new moves....

Viewtiful Joe 2 Review for the PS2


Same Joe time, Same Joe station.

Sweet, Viewtiful gameplay; Graphics still rock; Tough puzzles; Challenging

Sometimes in a bad way; No multiplayer; Not much new

The sound is hardly as notable. The effects are fine and the music matches the hectic gameplay, but whoever wrote the script should be slapped for creating such long-winded bosses, droning on forever rather than just screaming out your name and...

Viewtiful Joe 2 on GameCube


Viewtiful Joe 2 is about 10 hours long, but it also includes a little feature called the 36 Chambers to lengthen itself a bit. It's basically 36 challenges that put you in situations like clearing rooms in a certain amount of time or climbing a tower...

Viewtiful Joe 2


Capcom's cinematic hero returns to fight for justice, and this time he's bringing his lady friend.

Playing as Sylvia is a blast; great, tricky puzzles; VFX powers are still fun

It feels like more of the same; no two player mode
