Average User Score: 7.8May 7, 2013Really fast faced, rewarding and fun gameplay (but not very deep). Really really short campaign (it has replay value in other difficulties).Really fast faced, rewarding and fun gameplay (but not very deep). Really really short campaign (it has replay value in other difficulties). Awesome boss fights and music. Not so good story (not bad though). If you like hack n slash and you love platinum games style buy it right now. If you are a metal gear fan you might feel offended (shallow characters horrible stealth) and you shouldn't buy it. If it had the same number of boss batltes distributed in more and more polished levels it could be much better. Some problems with the camera but not very noticeable ones.… Expand

The story and characters at first is very annoying however as the game progresses it becomes more and more interesting and it even has a twisted ending that you would never guess and you grow to love the silly characters.
The game itself it's very japanese(not in a kawaii style more like Viewtiful Joe) and if you don't like that style you are probably going to hate it. Also the tone is very girly (things like lipsticks, butterfly wings, violet and pink colors) however if you really don't mind the combination of gore with girly colors that's not a problem.
The music it's awesome with many mixtures classic games music (like space harrier), jazz, upbeat techno, classical, etc.. and it's mostly awesome.
The gameplay is the central piece of this game. The game is so fast and with such an awesome control over Bayonetta that you would feel it natural after a couple of hours. Also the levels are well designed and very different one from each other.After some days of bayonetta I returned to Dmc 3 and 4 and it was so slow and clumsy in comparison that I comeback to this game.
The boss fights are epic as they can with huge with gargantuans as big as cities fighting against you.
In conclusion, if you don't mind an over the top mixture of ridiculous history (like in DMC) and some girly tone and you are looking for an awesome combat gameplay and level design go for it.
If you are the super serious masculine type of gamer that plays god of war, manhunt and hates japanese nonsense just play the game in mute, skip the cutscenes and put some metal music or something. The combat is so deep and fast paced that you won't mind after a while.Plus there is a lot of gore.
If you played the demo and didn't like it give it a chance anyways I played it too and hate it but as it was a good reviewed hack n slash I bought it in a sale.Now I love it the demo is just so misleading to the actual gameplay due to the fact that the awesomeness of the combat starts to show after and hour or two in the game.… Expand
