Truly Viewtiful! Added 3 Mar 2004, ID #1652
This is an AWESOME game!!! Using powers like Slow-mo or Mach Speed makes it fun to solve puzzles. There is no way to describe it. YOU MUST PLAY IT!!!!!!!!!!

This is a great game, and there are a few things that really make this game stand out:

1. The layered mix of 2D and 3D graphics give the game a very cool "live comic book" feel.

2. Side scrolling game set up is Super Mario-esque... it's simplistic, but very effective, and most importantly, fun. So many of the games out now have infinite 3D environments that allow you to run in every direction. While that is great, sometimes you want a game that is more concentrated on action...

Versus exploring every corner of the universe for 2 hours before you can move on to the next level. Simply put, Viewtiful Joe is all about the action.

3. Game control is truly put in the player's hands. You can slow down time and dodge bullets in a way that will make Neo jealous. While time is slow, you can really kick the crap out of the bad guys... the graphics are crazy to say the least. Besides slowing down time, you can also out maneuver it with Mach Speed. This allows you to act like Sonic the hedgehog on Steroids. You can increase your mach speed ability so that when you use it to attack enemies, you can move so fast that you attack them from all sides at the same time (in essence, there can be six of you at the same time kicking butt!) From moving so fast through the fabric of time, you catch fire, and your attacks become even more powerful. If all this isn't good enough, you are also given the ability to "zoom-in". Basically, the camera angle zooms in tight on Joe and all of his attacks and moves become SUPER, super hero-ish... his punches and kicks become more powerful and more poetic (you'll see). You can combine Zoom with Slow down, or Mach speed for some really nasty moves and damage capability.

This is truly old school gaming philosophy with an infusion of today's technology. Something i've been waiting a long time for. I hope this game gets popular... i'd like to see a sequel come out of this.
 
 
THE BEST GAMECUBE GAME EVER!!!!!!! Added 25 Oct 2003, ID #963
This game rocks! It has crisp, clean graphics, an enthralling plot, and even unlockable characters! This is THE best game of 2003! I have played Enter the Matrix, and the only catergory that they are equal in is slowing down time. Four words: get this game today before they sell out!
