Viewtiful Joe
5 Star Review  GameSpy - Oct 8, 2003

Very rarely does a game surprise me. I almost always have a pretty good idea of how the final version of a game will end up after seeing an early demo. Viewtiful Joe is one of those atypical games that surprised the socks off of me. I really wasn't expecting much. Perhaps my expectations were lowered because Capcom is having an off year and its 2D Mega Man titles have a limited appeal. Viewtiful Joe looked like an old-school platform-action game with a unique art style. And, while it certainly is those things, it's also a whole lot more. The game is one of the most imaginative experiences I've had all year. Mixing classic gameplay with modern sensibilities and an inimitable art style, Viewtiful Joe is one of the hippest-looking, slickest-playing, and coolest-feeling games around.

Viewtiful Joe
5 Star Review  IGN.com - Oct 3, 2003

When we first heard the word Viewtiful ourselves, we didn't know whether to look it up in the dictionary or question Capcom's sanity. From the limited screens and wacky title alone, we were convinced that the Japanese development team was hard at work creating a fancy acrobatic superhero dancing simulation of some sort. But when we finally got our hands on a playable version just a few short months later, we were in love. Since that time, our love has boiled into a raging, incurable infatuation for Viewtiful Joe. Yes, we realize that Joe is a spandex-clad superhero with a pink cape, but if you haven't already fallen in love with this game for yourselves after consuming our extensive, viewtiful preview coverage, then please, read on and allow us to share our passion.

Viewtiful Joe (GameCube)
5 Star Review   By member cotebryan1 - Oct 28, 2005   

Strengths: (1) Great mix of old school 2d beat-em-up action with 3d scenery and toon rendering (2) Fun to master fighting techniques and enemy confrontations take skill (3) Character looks cool while fighting

Weakness: (1) May be too difficult for some on default difficulty setting (2) Toon graphic may turn off some

Viewtiful Joe is an brave and original offering from a newly formed development team at Capcom. The team is comprised of many skilled developers and it currently focuses on creating new and original games. Viewtiful Joe is a total success. At first, you may think that it is a simple game because of the graphics and 2d movement, however, the game demands that you master the different fighting moves and special effect powers in order to get past the villians. The special effect powers are truly unique and make the fighting very entertaining. In addition, you will be faced with many puzzles that require a special effect power to be used in a certain way, often in conjunction with a certain fighting style. The puzzles are creative and for the most part logical once you figure them out. The boss monsters are a real challenge and require multiple attempts until you figure out their secret and/or pattern to take advantage of. This, too, is very "old-school", however, everything in Viewtiful Joe is more enjoyable if you use the special effect powers to their fullest. I purchased this game at full price and am very happy with it. It actually has a lot of replay value since the focus is on the action and it provides a lengthy experience.

Capcom Viewtiful Joe - Gamecube
4 Star Review   By member mick16 - Oct 9, 2005   

Strengths: Great side scolling action game. Good Graphics and storyline

Weakness: Length of game, lack of save points

Capcom Viewtiful Joe for the Gamecube is a great platform action game which was a great surprise for me. Aside from the Mario games, there wasn't much in platforming action on the Gamecube. This game however has a funny story line as well as innovative graphics and gameplay. The game length is a little short, but for $20 this is a can't miss purchase for the Cube. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up as well as Viewtiful Joe 2.

This game is pretty awesome, guys
4 Star Review   By member swordity - Oct 1, 2005   

Strengths: Beautiful graphics, challenging, many playable characters

Weakness: A bit short

This game has an interesting old school beat 'em up feel with interesting gameplay twists (zoom, mach speed, slow) and beautiful graphics. The game an be found for ten bucks at most places, and it's definitely worth it. Oh yeah, and POINTS.

Great 2D beatem-up
5 Star Review   By member eurenix - Sep 8, 2005   

This is a throwback to the style of gameplay that was popular during the 8-16 bit era. Which is not to say that this is not an innovative game. Rather than churning out something that has been done a hundred times before, Capcom really showed what a modern game of this type should be like. Viewtiful Jow is an evolution of the sidescroller, proving that there is much more there to explore. This is a really fun game. Viewtful Joe's powers revolve around time manipulation or reality distortion, and it is alll very cool. The art direction is superb, definately not something that could have been done before this generation of console.

Viewtiful Joe
3 Star Review   By member StashEX - Aug 21, 2005   

Strengths: Fun 2D gameplay

Weakness: Not a big fan of it's game design.

Viewtiful Joe is one of the few original 2D platformers to come out on a home console. The game's title character, Joe, has super powers after going into an old movie to save his girlfriend. Capcom really let their creativity loose with Joe's powers in this game, including being able to slowdown/accelarate time that has some awesome effects on the gameplay (such as slowing down time to make a bomb blast bigger). Further more, VJ's costume and accessories are all designed so well and look cool, as if Capcom planned to market them in other areas. What I didn't like about VJ was it's game design. I didn't feel like I was really getting any better after finishing a hard area or boss, it just felt that I was being thrown a lot of stuff at once and after a few attempts I would eventually be able to conquer it.

Solid action game
4 Star Review   By member boblentil - Aug 2, 2005   

Strengths: Fun frenetic action gameplay, excellent controls, steep challenge leads to a rewarding sense of accomplishment

Weakness: Tends to be a bit repetitive, can be very frustrating when things aren't going well, save points are sometimes a bit far apart

Viewtiful Joe is an excellent 2D side-scrolling action game with some puzzle and platforming elements. The majority of the game consists of fighting off countless waves of bad guys. Successful completion of the game will require the use of several superhero powers, including the abilities to slow down time and move with superspeed. These powers also come into play when solving some of the games puzzles, as using your powers can change how your able to interact with your environment. Each level is punctuated by a challenging boss fight, most of which will require an hour or more of repetition to complete, as there is little room for error. Viewtiful Joe provides a steep challenge, which at times can be very frustrating, especially when you've played for hours only to be forced back to a distant save point. However, completing the challenge will lead to a strong sense of a accomplishment that few other games provide. Any fans of action beat 'em ups should check this one out.

It's so viewtiful
4 Star Review   By member electrictroy - Jul 21, 2005   

Strengths: fun 2d gaming

Weakness: graphics could have been better

I haven't played a side-scroller this good since tmnt hyperstone heist. I love the graphics in this game, they're so stylish and funky. The vfx powers like slow-mo, mach speed and zoom in add a lot of style, variety and fun to the game. Many of the parts feel like the martix movies, especiallly when you're dodging bullets in slow-mo from those cowboy guys. The game has two major set backs though, no saving until you've beaten a level and the boss fights will take hours if not even months to beat like it did for me when I had to fight the magnificent five and fire leo. This game is definetly NOT for those who break controllers easily out of frustration because I almost chucked my wavebird across my room but common sense and sanity told me to stop. Once again this game was strictly meant and designed for the hard-core, side-scrolling gamer so don't buy it if you've never played a beat-em up game before. Do yourself a favor go out and buy this game you'll love it's quirkiness and silly sense of humour completely stylish graphics and captivating storyline.

5 Star Review   By member classicgamer52 - Jun 29, 2005   

Strengths: Unique graphic style, fast-paced action, great boss battles

Weakness: Somewhat short

Viewtiful Joe is a fun, original 2D action game. The defining feature of this game is the player's ability to slow down or speed up time to fight many enemies at once. The graphics and sound are great and the action never gets boring. Performing stylish moves or large combos earns you points that can be used to increase your life meter or learn new moves. The game overall, and particularly the boss battles are challenging. An easy mode is available but it's really worth it to fight through normal mode to get the most out of this game.

Strengths: 2D platformer, gameply, characters

This game is great. It has a very funny script, great characters, and awesome gameplay. The ability to slow down and speed up is awesome and is executed nicely. The game's bosses are challenging, but not too bad. There are a lot of unlockables, so keep at it! Great game overall.

4 Star Review   By member mkelehan - Jun 17, 2005   

Strengths: Great graphics and humor. Innovative gameplay.

Weakness: Gets real repetative.

Viewtiful Joe is a 2D game trapped in a 3D world. You move left to right, taking out enemies using your VFX powers, like slow-mo, mach speed, and zoom in. The graphics are great, and the game never takes itself too seriously, so it can be very enjoyable... except for the fact that the combat really never gets any further than punching and kicking goons. It's kind of repetative, but if you like this stuff, you could be all over it.

4 Star Review   By member zigg - Jun 11, 2005   

Strengths: Classic brawler gameplay reinvented on the Gamecube with incredible graphics and new powers

Weakness: None that I can think of

One of Capcom's much-vaunted set of (once) Gamecube-exclusive titles, this new franchise came out of nowhere. With classic side-scrolling brawler gameplay and what was probably the first appearance of "bullet time" in a video game, this game is an absolute classic. The theme is hokey, but in a funny way. Joe's a fan of Captain Blue, superhero, and is watching a feature with his attention-starved girlfriend when she's taken from him by onscreen baddies. Joe gets effectively sucked into the movie to rescue her, assuming his own superhero identity along the way. Beyond the kicks and punches, Joe's also got VFX powers at his disposal, including the ability to slow time (my favorite), go into hyper-speed, and zoom in for his own personal close-up -- the latter providing him with the opportunity to do special moves. This is another one of those titles that simply needs a spot in any self-respecting Gamecube fan's library.

5 Star Review   By member FOnewearl - May 14, 2005   

Strengths: graphics, progressive scan, multiple difficulties to play though

Weakness: Nothing

Viewtiful Joe is a side scrolling brawler with cel-shaded graphics. You start out as Joe in his regular street cloth but soon into level 1 you will transform into his superhero alter ego Viewtiful Joe. Once you turn into Viewtiful Joe you will be able to use slow, mach speed, and zoom to unleash massive combos on your enemies. As you play though levels you will earn viewtifuls which can be used like money at the end of every level to buy more moves. Besides using Joe's slow, mach speed, and zoom powers to beat bad guys up you will also find yourself at times using these powers to solve puzzles within the levels. I would highly suggest Viewtiful Joe to anyone that likes action games & brawlers as it's as good as it gets for what it does.

5 Star Review   By member MaxBiaggi2 - Apr 30, 2005   

Strengths: High quality side scroller fighting action, unique cel-shaded graphics and effects, old school gameplay with modern visuals

Weakness: Old school difficulty, can be frustrating to people who don't enjoy a real challenge

Capcom has put together its best action game since the original Devil May Cry in Viewtiful Joe. When your lady friend is kidnapped into a movie, mild-mannered Joe must go in after her, but he goes in with the added strength of his own film-inspired alter ego, special powers and super moves to battle a seemingly unending stream of bad guys. The action is fast and furious and can be challenging (or even frustrating) at times, but you probably already know if this is your kind of game or not. A later PS2 port includes an alternate story through the same game where you play as Devil May Cry's Dante with some unique moves. Unfortunately, the PS2 model doesn't have the same eye-catching visual flare that the Gamecube original does, so take this into consideration before making a purchase.

5 Star Review   By member *omegapirate* - Apr 1, 2005   

Strengths: stylish graphics, very fun to play, very difficult

Weakness: it is very difficult (and can be frustrating)

Personally, I was not all that impressed when I saw videos of the game, but once I actually got to play it, I loved it. It is very enjoyable to use Joe's VFX powers - like slowing everything down to dodge bullets (I love how he spins out of the way of the bullets), or speeding up and destroying multiple enemies with ease. As I have said, it is not an easy game. I put it as a strength and a weakness because it can be both - I know that I have been disappointed with many recent games because they have been too easy, and this game certainly does not have that problem. It can be frustrating to have to fight a boss 20-30+ times before being able to beat it, but it is immensely satisfying once you do. It is worth noting that there are two skill levels, and I started at the harder one.

Strengths: Great side-scrolling fighter, very original.

This is another great game for the Gamecube. I like how the game progresses as you improve your skills. The fighting is fun and I like the slow and zoom modes. I would list this in the top 10 games to have for your Gamecube.

5 Star Review   By member kawikadhl - Dec 11, 2004   

Strengths: great side scroller action game.. very innovative but old school at the same time.. extremely fun and addicting; challenging but not difficult

Weakness: some may not like the cartoonish graphics, but it's not that bad.. the enemies can be a little repetitive

This game is GREAT FUN - from slow mode to mach speed to zoom, you have a variety of skills that allow you to kick some major butt! A huge recommendation to buy this game now!

5 Star Review   By member shrike424242 - Aug 5, 2004   

Strengths: Frantic action, good graphics, funny storyline, off-beat, well worth the money

Weakness: Gamecube only.

If you want a great, fast, frantic and funny beat-em-up, this is definately your game. Your girlfriend gets kidnapped and pulled into the film you're watching. You follow, and turn into Viewtiful Joe, your super-hero alter-ego. What goes from there turns into an off-beat and funny beat-'em-up, where the action goes fast and the thinking goes even faster. It's simple to start with, and keeps you interested. Challenging and fun, and worth every penny of the money. A must-have for the Gamecube.
