    I heard good things about this game but still got no idea what the hell it is? I found the 1 and 2 at my videogame store and I wonder... can you name a game similar to this?

    I think in gameplay it's similar yet far superior to Alien Homonid, and I know that at least the first one is supposed to be one of the best games for the GameCube, but after that I can't tell you much. I think GR has a review on at least one of them, if not IGN does but don't trust their rating too much.

    It's pretty much just a sidescroller beat-em-up, but i has a bunch of elements that make it great.

    Some people can dance, some can sing, I can spread my love for Viewtiful Joe >cracks knuckles<

    It's like Zoom said, just a side-scroller beat-em-up. You have 3 special powers called "VFX". One is "slow" where you can slow eveything down and beat everyone up, another is "mach speed" where you can speed everything up...and beat everyone up. Then there's "zoom" where you zoom in and he can do special moves. You can then mix them all together and do badass moves!!

    Here's the trailer:

    ya in the ps2 version you can play as people from devil may cry and its got a few other percs, if you have a ds or psp there is also a great version, double trouble, i have played both versions and its great on the ds because you use the bottom screen to activate and use all your powers

    I went a while thinking this game was called "Beautiful Joe"...which explains why I've never played it. I think I realized the title after the second came out, but I was busy with other PS2-related series...es...to try it.

    But that's half the fun with this game. It makes you think and use your powers in various ways to achieve victory!

    I just played it this morning, got my ass kicked by the boss though. Mainly at the end of Chapter 5...
    But it's worth it for the sexy style alone.

    And also, is it just me or was the second one a bit easier than the first?

    You just need to learn the boss' patterns, then it's peachy as pie.

    And I think the second is easier HK. And you got your ass kicked by Alastor?!...Rubbish :p

    Wasn't Leo the final boss in Chapter 5?
    I assumed he was, with me thinking that Chapter 5 was called "The Magnificent 5".
    And as sexy as Alastor is, he can barely hold a candle to Joe.

    Nah, Magnificent 5 is the 6th chapter.
