Bayonetta was great. The storyline was interesting. Lots of crazy things happened. The gameplay was great. Hack and slash on giant enemies. The detailing in the enemies and in the characters was incredible. Visually stunning. And the characters were great. Bayonetta herself was sarcastic to all the seriousness of the enemies. Enzo is goofball. It sounded good. Sound effects worked and the music was great. The graphics were great. Quiet a bit... Read More

1-Story/characters. Bayonetta story is bad, i know we are not playing those kind of games for the stories but Bayonetta has so many cutscenes and worst of all they are most of the time not animated. Furthermore the characters voice acting is plain bad, and Bayonetta as a character is unlikeable and is close to hooker the way she acts. In short bad story, bad character and way too many cutscenes. 2-Gameplay. Game is supposed to be a non-stop acti... Read More

This is not your typical hack and slash, there are some unique mechanics that generally improves the formula. On top of this, you have the surrealistic plot, ... Read More

Played the Wii U version, which is my first ever experience with Bayonetta. In terms of aesthetic and charm, this game knows what it has and flaunts it at every chance it can. It's rare that a game can carry itself with this much swagger, with its titular character being the most memorable. Sarcastic, witty, and a dominatrix in all other aspects, Bayonetta rules the screen as she battles the corrupt angels in a setting that would not be unfamili... Read More
