Simply Viewtiful
15 January 2004 | by AmephSee all my reviews

When I first saw this game, I thought that this character was a rip- off of Captain Falcon. Now, that I own the game. He's far from that.

Graphics: Cel graphics again! Seems to me that they're becoming a trend. The graphics are great for a movie set scene. The backgrounds look like they're cardboard cut outs and you can so the ripples of the guns from the tanks and cowboys. When your VFX gauge runs out, the scene will turn into an old movie film which looks great even.

Controls: The controls are very good. They're right where you'd need them. It's very easy to do the special abilities even.

Gameplay: With the combination of Slow, Mach and Zoom, you have to fight through hordes and hordes of Bianckies. In additin, the game is filled with puzzles that require you to use your powers to manipulate the area around you (Like using Slow to have a propeller powered platform to drop)

Sound: The sound is crisp. The music is tuned in. Nothing more to say

Replayability: After you with Kids mode, you do Adult mode. After Adult mode, you do V-Rated mode which is hard mode. After V-Rated mode, you do Ultra V-Rated mode which is extremely difficult. Not to mention, you can unlock different characters and stories for the game too.

Final View: This is a great game made up by Capcom. Very orginal, highly impressive. Get this game if you're an action fan or if you're a Megaman fan. You will enjoy this game!
