Viewtiful Joe 2 has already gained some notoriety. A bug in the Playstation Underground demoViewtiful Joe version of the game wiped your memory card. A bug so heinous, that if you call Sony and say "My card got wiped", if you send them the UPC code or something from the disk, they'll send you a free game, which I'm sure will make up for the hundreds of hours of Final Fantasy you lost. There are threads on message boards across the net with people lamenting what they lost, like some strange honor roll. There are also a fair number of people who have said they're not buying the game because it may still have the same bug. Understandably gunshy, but come on... Do you honestly think that, after this complete disaster, they wouldn't fix the bug? I can state from personal experience that so far I've yet to encounter any memory card wiping bug.

Here's a review for you. The first game hasn't been out that long, and here's the sequel. And it's good. Though sadly, the touted co-op play mode never made it in, which is a huge shame. It's still a ridiculously fun game though. But don't take my word for it, go read the review!
