In this game, players take control of regular "Joe," a celshaded hero whose sidescrolling adventures are presented in the style of a movie. Joe soon gains the ability to transform in to Viewtiful Joe, a superhero with the power to eliminate his enemies with special effects. As he makes his way through the adventure, he earns new and more powerful abilities. These powers allow Viewtiful Joe to execute special combos, or even control the flow of time.


Using his visual effects 'Slow' power, Joe instantaneously slows down the action to inflict damage reminiscent of today's popular action movies. For those who prefer a lighting-speed approach, Joe executes 'Mach Speed' and his fists and feet of fury destroy enemies with incredible speed. The combination of a true comic book look, mixed with the challenge of editing action moves on the fly, set Viewtiful Joe apart from all other games on the market. Players will exclaim, "this game is 'viewtiful!'
