    Another beauty from Viewty!

    This is a very unique title in the Viewtiful Joe franchise. It's not a straight story-based game and it's not strictly a one-on-one fighting game . . . it's kind of a hybrid of the two. The premise of the game is that Ca... Read Full Review

    underappreciated by many but if u just give it a chance it can turn out to be a surprisingly good time.

    Viewtiful Joe Red Hot Rumble is a fast paced beat 'em up that can be fun if u give it a chance. the game starts out with captain blue, along with sprocket, coming up with an idea for a movie and everyone from the first r... Read Full Review

    Very frustrating.

    My biggest problem with this game is the insane amount of activity on screen at one time while playing. There are so many items and badguys onscreen at one time that it is obscenely difficult to keep track of where your ... Read Full Review

    I bought this game after seeing a gameplay video and it looked kind of like a super smash bros. game when I put it in my PSP I started to play and it dissapointed me. First of all the game has no mode where you can just ... Read Full Review

    True Viewtiful Joe fans will most likely love this game. If not... well...

    I don't know about many other fans, but I like this game! Heck, it's probably one of the best games I own! This is a game that people should buy and try out, but I personally suggest playing the first game on GC or PS2 b... Read Full Review

    True Viewtiful Joe game players only.

    OMG I CAN'T SEE!! That is pretty much the only big problem with this game, otherwise it's great for the PSP. I also came in not expecting much so i don't know if that effects my rating or not. Gameplay: 7 Stylish w... Read Full Review
