    This PC release brings with it a gorgeous graphic update, with smooth 60fps and 4K visuals you can see every detail the development team created for you. This is truly the definitive edition of this game, and one that you have to pick up if you are a PC gamer, whether you played Bayonetta when it launched originally or not. Bayonetta is a great hack and slash that takes what works in other games and adds its own unique flair and style, which pays off handsomely.

    Despite the fact that the original was released seven years ago, Bayonetta is one of this year’s most important PC games. In its field it’s still unbeatable and the port leaves very little to be desired. [06/2017, p.48]

    It took a long time for the Umbra Witch to climax on PC but after seven years she finally arrived. And she didn’t miss a beat. This was and still is a first class action-adventure full of creativity, adrenaline fueled battles and sassiness beyond belief. And unlike Nier Automata this is a decent, albeit option lacking PC port.

    Even if its story falls into many amnesia tropes and the graphics are a bit dated, the innovative and enthralling gameplay coupled with its over-the-top-nature make Bayonetta a wild ride that you won't ever want to get off. Sega has mentioned that they want to do more PC ports in the future and, if they are done as well as Bayonetta, I can't wait to see what they bring over next.

    I’m not really surprised that Bayonetta holds up, but I am surprised that it holds up this damn well, and handily one-ups most games that are coming out these days. To me, this is still one of the gaming’s landmark achievements, and now, it’s better than ever.

    If we're talking about gameplay, the first Bayonetta is still a masterpiece in the action genre, surpassed only by its direct sequel. Such a game deserved an excellent port, and SEGA delivered with a flawless product, exquisitely solid even on low-end configurations.

There are so many things I could get into, but to keep it short -- Bayonetta, to me, is a brilliantly crafted experience that's fun, sassy, and fast-paced with surprising layers of depth. Even though I'm not a fan of hack and slash games, Bayonetta is a huge exception in my catalogue of all time favorites because it is so much MORE than just your ordinary H&S experience. First of all, the art direction & character designs are off the charts genius and so well done that you'll quickly become engrossed in the story which, imo, is fantastic and deeper than what one might think at first glance. This is a journey of a woman becoming a fearless & strong warrior with one of the major themes being motherhood, love, and faith in oneself. And yet, the game doesn't takes itself too seriously as you concoct magical lollipops, collect halos, and listen to some of the finest one liners ever uttered in a video game. Bayonetta is not only one of the best video games ever made, but she's also one of my all time favorite video game characters. And that's a huge feat! The game is highly addictive and very replayable. It also has some of the most beautiful music I've ever heard, especially during the Vigrid / Paradiso segments. If you haven't played this gem, don't wait no more and go play Bayonetta. You won't regret it. Expand

    This action masterpiece is finally on PC! I'm happy to report that this version of the game is fantastic, tons of options, runs excellentlyThis action masterpiece is finally on PC! I'm happy to report that this version of the game is fantastic, tons of options, runs excellently even at 4K and beyond, and it runs well on older hardware. The game itself is incredibly enjoyable, with virtually perfect controls, stunning art direction and it doesn't take itself too seriously which was a breath of fresh air during its original 2010 release on Xbox 360 (and a terrible PS3 version, then a Wii U version in 2014!). The price on Steam as of this review is $19.99/£14.99, and I'd say it's definitely worth it at that price, or you could wait for a sale if you prefer, but definitely check this game out at some point, especially if you are a fan of hack and slash games, as this is a stellar example of one.

    Contras
    - Quicktime events exagerados!!
    - Boss battles com mais quicktimes do que sua própria habilidade em si.
    - Morrer por conta de um quicktime é totalmente idiota e faz com que você recomece a fase ou use um item escasso para te reviver.

    - No geral é um ótimo hack-slash mas seus momentos de esmaga botões podem irritar bastante sua experiencia.

Game game more than 63 hours and I will play more + version Big difference on the copy of Playstation 3 was fun but slow and FPS less. The variety of the meat is very excellent and comb is very hard to master but if you have mastered you will be fun . best Platinum Games ever
    The enemies are different and fight them in different ways, some with the sword, some with the gun and some with the blue and red lightning weapon, fighting with a sword is beautiful close to devil may cry , is seem creator Hideki Kamiya
    The Game is 10/10 (Unfortunately exclusive games on Nintendo devices : you mast buy the Nintendo S to play Beyonetta 2 and Soon 3 . {Soundtracks is best to it is Legendary Soundtracks
