    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.

    A masterpiece - when it is a true masterpiece - never gets old.

    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.

    Bayonetta gets off to a slow start but it gets better and better as it goes on, it also didn't overstay its welcome, clocking in at just underBayonetta gets off to a slow start but it gets better and better as it goes on, it also didn't overstay its welcome, clocking in at just under 12 hours which felt perfect to me.

    I found the combat to be extremely fun and just over the top ridiculous but in a good way, with countless combos to perform and plenty of well done set pieces that took you off the ground to change up the gameplay a little. The boss fights were simply incredible, I can't think of many games that can match them. The main gripe I have regarding the gameplay is the damn QTEs which were often very unforgiving and resulted in death, one shot mechanics are never fun, and one shot QTEs are just the worst.

    The music was another huge success, it was very upbeat and fit the theme of the game perfectly, which overall was quite sexual and filled with innuendo, but on such an over the top level it was more humorous than anything else. Bayonetta as a character was very likeable, especially when interacting with the "Little one".

    Overall I enjoyed my time with the game and will definitely be playing the sequel sometime in the future.

    "BAYONETTA" - это потрясающая игра, опирающаяся на столб геймплея, ибо её боевая система изумляет. С любопытным для таких игр саундтреком. Тем временем сюжет оставит прохладные впечатления, ну кроме зрелищных экшен сцен. Отличная вещь для тех кто любить сложные игры с вызовом и большой долей реиграбельности, возможности для изучения механик и совершенствования своих навыком. И что меня ещё до сих пор не радует, даже выйдя на ПК в неё не завезли переназначения кнопок на геймпаде, что жаль, ибо удобство управления в таких играх очень важно.

    A mediocre game, copy of Devil May Cry. Crappy history, bad camera, stupid combo system.
    There is real gems is this genre to play this game.
