--- Product Number 03 ---
P.N. 03 got a lot of attention, because it was the first of the "Capcom 5" to see release. (The other 4 are Viewtiful Joe, Resident Evil 4, Killer 7, and the cancelled Dead Phoenix).
P.N. 03 was heavily criticized for repetitiveness in gameplay and for re-using the same rooms, levels, and enemies. All of those criticisms are valid (extremely valid), but not enough (we think) to call this a bad game. Those same criticisms are also true of Halo, one of the more celebrated games around.
I think the real problem with P.N. 03 was that its unique design was misunderstood. Because its a 3rd-person shooting game with a lead character on foot, people were expecting a Syphon Filter, Metal Gear, or Devil May Cry type of game.
But P.N. 03, in spirit, is more of a classic "flying" shooter like 1942, Galaga or Gradius. That's where its genius lies. We had a blast with this game, despite its flaws. It's really a rush once you're good at it to clear a room of enemies, jumping and sliding around to never take a hit, all while Vanessa 'dances'. And her "Energy Drive" moves are just plain cool.
Which brings us to our last point: Vanessa is hot. :-)
Enough talk, here are some videos of the game (in two sizes for convenience):
This video is of the sexy game intro sequence (small version below).
And this one is a collage of Vanessa's cool Energy Drive super-moves (small version below).
