Summary

Classic platforming action returns. New console, new look, same great fun

The Good

The style of the classic platform shooter games of yesteryear returns with a brand-new style. As Joe, you find yourself thrust into a movie world filled with gorgeous graphics and bizarre movie-esque villians in a battle to save your girlfriend. Veteran games who remember the challenges of classic NES and SNES games will not be disappointed, and even new players will find the action incredibly enjoyable.

The Bad

Some players may find the minimal frequency of save options makes the game artificially difficult.

The Bottom Line

If you like platform shooters, and want to play one of the best platformers ever, buy Viewtiful Joe.
