Viewtiful Joe

Viewtiful Joe is the very spirit of coolness condensed and then given a game which suits him. In a time where 2D brawlers were effectively dead and cartoon stylings were rare indeed, Viewtiful Joe bucked every gritty, pseudo-realistic, taking-itself-too-seriously trend in the business. The game Veiwtiful Joe is rock hard, lightning quick, and built on a simple but extremely satisfying combat system which is easy to pick up and almost impossible to master. Twitch-based brawler gameplay was given a shot of adrenaline directly into its heart, and the result was one of the best brawlers I ever played.
