Product Description

The sequel to Capcom's zany and innovative brawler. In Viewtiful Joe 2, Joe and his girlfriend Silvia -- both now fully playable -- are ready to face more challenging enemies and obstacles. Equipped with her pompoms for up close fights and projectiles for long distance, Silvia proves that she's as mean and cool as Joe himself. The title will boast a number of play and graphic enhancements, including a new special effect "Replay" option which allows players to repeat an action sequence for what Capcom describes as very "heroic results." New stages take Joe and Silvia through the jungles, the snowy mountains and of course, outer space. And to top everything off, the title dishes out some 40 new adversaries to keep Joe's fists busy.

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.

The second installment is just as good as the first game with more action better abilities and a great and addicting story line. It's just another great addition atop of what they have already created. I love this game and replay it every year or so for the humor as well as the action, just another great addition to a game cube collection above all else.

I always found it odd that the second game didn't do better than the first Viewtiful Joe - Gamecube. I think the concept of Viewtiful Joe never really caught on. It can be hard to convince gamers that a sidescroller with a Power Rangers wannabe could be this awesome. When you explain to them how revolutionary the speed up, slow down, and other effects are, you just get blank stares. I think what also didn't help it was the game is just so damn hard. Both 1 & 2 will humiliate gamers in easy/kids mode. But make no mistake, the this is a unique and fantastic series with top of the line graphics and gameplay.

This time around, you get to play as Joe and/or his girlfriend Sylvia. You will see a lot of old bosses as well as some new ones. There's a lot more vehicles you can use this time around, and all are just a pure joy to use. Then there's Sylvia. I ended up liking her more than old Joe. She has her own powers and most importantly a gun. This gives her great distance attacks, something about that just feels so right in this game.

You may have skipped this one because you heard it was just more of the same. And it definitely is that. But it's bigger, more fun, and generally even better crafted than the first. Just like the first, story is engaging but doesn't take itself too seriously, and that's it's charm. The gameplay is more varied thanks to Sylvia and all those new vehicles. It's a longer and better game. And keep in mind that the first game was pretty much perfect and you get how high praise that is.

Bottom line, this is one of the best games you will ever play if you give it a chance.

Viewtiful Joe 2 is still a great game. I would have given it a 5 if I never played the first one. The first Viewtiful Joe was one of the best (and most difficult) platforming games ever. Viewtiful Joe 2 continues the tradition but fails to surpass it's older sibling.
"WARNING SPOILERS"
Story: I would rank Viewtiful Joe 2's story the same as the first one. Like the first one, Viewtiful Joe 2 is supposed to be like a B-rated movie and has a plot that doesn't take itself seriously. The game takes place right where the first one did end. Captain Blue is Sylvia's father. Sylvia gets her own V-watch and they learn some terrible news. The world will be threatened by evil 2 more times. Right after saying this they see that another group of aliens is invading Movieland. While the V-Duo head of to Movieland Captain Blue get's captured and is turned into a... Oscar? In Movieland Joe and Sylvia learn that this group ain't the Jadow but the Gedow, another group of aliens who want world domination. Leading them is a mysterious being who refers to himself as the Black Emperor. They used Blue's powers of happy endings to turn him into a Rainbow Oscar. These 7 Oscar's control the power of happy endings. If they were put in evil's hands happy endings would never come and the Gedow would be free to conquer the worls. After being transported into the movie Jurrasic Park, Joe and Sylvia must go across Movieworld and find the Oscar's. The plot itself doesn't really develop until later in the game.
Gameplay: You'll go through 7 reels which are the same as episodes in Viewtiful Joe. In each one you'll go through a level. 7 levels may seem short but each one is very large and filled with complicated puzzle's and Sub-Bosses. The level's aren't as hard as the first one but the puzzle's are longer.
