    It all adds up to one of the must-have games on the Switch, alongside Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Skyrim. Still need a reason to buy a Switch? You’re all out of them.

    Bayonetta herself is one of the sassiest characters in gaming and the combat is simply better than any hack and slash action game that I've ever played (and still is to this day). The game is only made better by the enhanced performance and portability provided by the Nintendo Switch and it's one that every Switch owner should have in their collection.

    The original Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 are still magnificent these days, and the Nintendo Switch version succeeds in allowing you to re-experience them on the latest console, even in a portable way. If you are a fan of action games but haven't tried the original version before, don't hesitate to buy the bundle. They might be the greatest action games until the releases of God of War or Bayonetta 3.

    Being able to play two of Platinum Games’ finest efforts whenever you like is hugely appealing, and the abundance of content on offer here only makes it even better. It’s somewhat disheartening that neither game has received any significant improvements beyond amiibo support and slightly better performance, especially since the Switch has proven it’s capable of far more.

    Bayonetta 1 & 2 is the perfect choice if you have not had the chance to play them previously. Its style fits perfectly with the Nintendo Switch controls and the quality of both games is still amazing.

    Two safe ports of two extremely awesome over-the-top action games.

    Put simply, if you're a fan of the series, Bayonetta 1 & 2 are essential on the Nintendo Switch, especially if, like me, you only plan to play them in handheld mode. It's undeniably disappointing that they're less attractive in docked mode, but nevertheless they're still wildly enjoyable and engaging, just not as sharp as you'd probably expect.

    One of the best games ever made, and I'm so glad they are on the switch now.

Since then, I've been embracing everything the game has to offer, from its sass, to it's music, to it's style, to... god, everything.

    Bayonetta is hands-down one of the best games in my library and I am so happy to have had the chance to play it. The sequel builds on everything the first game has to offer and refines it. The story is a bit less engaging in the sequel, but it's still fun to go through. Personally, I like Bayonetta's appearance in the first game compared to the second game, but she looks great on both games anyways.

    The Switch version is definitely the definitive version. I am very happy to see PlatinumGames' best work finally being recognized on a console that has a lot more traction going for it than the Wii U.

    As for those who complain about pricing: believe me, it justifies the price. And this is coming from someone who has now Triple-dipped on Bayonetta (Wii U, PC, and now Switch).

    Excelente Juego. Esto es lo que note:
    - Me sorprendió la fluidez con lo que corre tanto en modo portátil como en el Dock.
    - La batería con este juego dura mas de 3 horas, lo que quiere decir que si lo trabajaron para la consola.
    - La jugabilidad con los Joicon es muy buena y en modo portátil lo puedes jugar con la pantalla, algo excelente para algunas situaciones dentro del juego. (El mando Pro es aun Mejor)
    - Las animaciones y los diálogos se ven de muy bien y te mantienen en la trama del juego en todo momento.
    - Siempre corre Suave suave durante todo el juego (hasta ahorita llevo completo el 1 y la mitad del 2)

    La verdad muy feliz de por fin poderlo jugar después de tanto tiempo. Por cierto, los negativos se nota que ni siquiera lo tienen. Así que si llegan a leer esto, es una compra de la cual no se arrepentirán si les gusta el genero claro esta. Saludos

La banda sonora es muy variada, pero no llega a excelente. Como no me gustó la primera parte de la mitad, esta trama estaba aún más entusiasmada conmigo, el elegante Bayonetta 2 me hace querer más y ahora no puedo esperar al lanzamiento de la tercera parte anunciada. ¡Este juego no debe perderse por ningún propietario de Nintendo Switch (ya adulto)!

    PROS
    Sin duda un excelente videojuego, todas y cada una de las peleas se sienten de una forma especial, la dificultad al maximo es más de la que muchos quisieran probar tanto asi que si no encuentras el patron adecuado o no mides los tiempos moriras una y otra y otra vez.
    Las ecenas cinematicas estan muy bien logradas y la musica sigue siendo una maravilla.
    Los controles se sienten totalmente responsivos, por lo que al presionar el boton en el momento equivocado puede hacer la diferencia entre morir o seguir.

    CONTRAS
    A pesar de que en el genero la historia suele pasar a segundo plano, aqui no es trasendente ni maravillosa, pero claro que se entiende pues (reiterando) en el genero la historia no es el fuerte.
    De haberlo jugado en Wii U pocas son las razones para comprarlo ya que unicamente los tiempos de carga, frames y demas detalles tecnicos son los que cambian sin algun contenido adicional destacable. Si anteriormente no lo jugaste o eres gran fan de la saga son las razones más importantes para adquirirlo

    Una estafa que vendan exactamente el mismo juego sin ninguna mejora al mismo precio.
