Great for teens

Though, Viewtiful Joe has two modes, one suitable for younger kids and one for older, teens, the game defaults to the second mode which contains elements that some concerned parents may have issues with. That said, the game is visually stunning and game play is both fun and interesting. Try the game with your kids.

An excellent return to classic gaming, though the difficulty level is high.

In my humble opinion, Viewtiful Joe is one of the best games available for the GameCube. It is a return to old-school, two-dimensional platforming that is a joy to watch and play. Joe's VFX powers (Slow, Mach Speed, and Zoom) make the gameplay suprisingly deep, and the comic book graphics look great. However, this game is not designed for young children. Besides the mild cartoon violence and suggestive themes (one of the characters is named "Sexy Sylvia, for obvious reasons), the difficulty level is very high compared to many recent games, and many young gamers will likely get turned off quickly by the fact that they can and will lose lives many times. Overall, however, this is a fun game with a high replay value and amusing story. A worthy buy.
