Cheesy dialogue and happy endings are in trouble once again, and who better to come to the rescue than that high-flying cinematic hero, Viewtiful Joe? A few months ago, Capcom brought its wildly innovative side-scrolling platformer of the same name,...

Viewtiful Joe deftly delivers a fantastic cel-shaded look while also adding a really great series of unique gameplay twists that make it much, much better than the average side-scrolling action game.

Viewtiful Joe (GameCube)

 

It may not seem immediately obvious, but the action genre has been getting a slow makeover for the past few years. Prior to Viewtiful Joe, the evidence was Capcom's own 2001 action game, Devil May Cry, which really demonstrated how to put together an...

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

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.

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.
