    A more focused, more vibrant game that surpasses its predecessor and establishes itself as the best game on the Wii U and as the newest masterpiece of the genre.

    Sega's loss is Nintendo's gain: Bayonetta, twirling away from a gigantic demon's maw and smacking the highest choir of angels on the nose, has just given Wii U its first true classic. [Nov 2014, p.100]

    The sheer polish applied to every part of Bayonetta 2 is something every major studio should aspire to: the exceptional and wide-ranging soundtrack, the huge number of unlocks, the Nintendo easter eggs, the “making of” materials, and the unlockable characters that bring their own style. Not a single thing has been held back. In this second adventure, Bayonetta over-delivers in every regard, and it will be a long time before another fighting game threatens her crown.

    Bayonetta 2's biggest disappointment may be that it's an iterative sequel, but it's not such a problem when it's iterating on genius.

    Bayonetta 2 is a silky smooth and highly-entertaining brawler that all Wii U owners should have in their collections.

    Bayonetta 2 is the high-flying return of everyone's favorite Umbra Witch. Platinum Games pushes to the Wii U to its limit with fast action, magnificent vistas, and huge bosses. The addition of the original Bayonetta just pushes the entire package over the top. If you're a Devil May Cry fan, this is a must-buy.

    Over the top yet unimaginative. At least the fights are dynamic and the game itself can be a breath of fresh air, considering what else is available on the Wii U. [Issue#245]

The greatest hack and slash action game of all time. I've come back to it again and again. Campaign is only 10 hours long but Ive already put 60 hours into the game with the amount of replay value it has. So many weapons, modes, different characters etc. Plus fan service with the nintendo costumes (love the starfox). It doesnt get better than this. Again the best action game ever Expand

    Easily the best game on the Wii U, but still not quite perfect. Exquisite action sequences aplenty mixed with some of the finest controls I'veEasily the best game on the Wii U, but still not quite perfect. Exquisite action sequences aplenty mixed with some of the finest controls I've ever experienced in a character-action game make Bayonetta 2 a difficult game to put down, even if it's a slightly exhausting experience. The graphics are better than I expected them to be, and it doesn't seem like there are unintended frame drops even when the action gets hectic. Bayonetta 2's only real fault is it's story - well developed as it may be, it's not presented in the best possible way, choosing strange still-filled cutscenes to convey the action. There is also a chance people will find some of the characters grating. Having played the original, while the campy hypersexualization of the titular character is still present, it feels slightly subdued in comparison. In all, Bayonetta 2 is a great game, though not perfect, and most certainly worth a purchase if you already own a Wii U. Expand

    Meh. Another Wii crapfest of a great game. No new ingenuity just a copy of a good game from a past generation and another console. Keep upMeh. Another Wii crapfest of a great game.
