The perfect difficulty.
Viewtiful Joe is a hard game. The quicker tempered of you will probably stick your fist through your TV screen whilst fighting some of the hard as nails bosses.

It's hard, and it's punishing, but you wont want to stop 'til you can whipe that smerk off of Capcom's (the guys who made the game) smug face. You know they're laughing at you, you know that they're sniggering at your embarrassing reaction speeds and you know that they're placing bets with each other on how long it'll take their level or boss to BREAK YOUR ASS!

Games these days simply whore themselves off to you, they're cheap and they're easy. Which is why developers reward your play time with a 20 minute FMV sequence as a reward. Viewtiful Joe is different. Okay, so it still rewards you with a nice ending movie but completing the game is a reward in itself. The pride you'll get from completing the game is better than any stupid ending movie.

Unless you're playing on the easy mode... in which case, you make me sick.
