    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 game is extremely fun to play and must by for any Bayonetta fan, or fan of this kind of games. Graphics are awesome and the game runs 60 FPS, which makes is look good. Voice acting is nice and the soundtrack is what you can expect from Bayonetta game. If you have Wii U, you should pick this game up and check the first one too, maybe before Bayonetta 2, if you haven't played it yet! Expand

    The first game is already amazing, the second one more so.

    And with this package, you get both for the price of one. It's an awesome deal

It takes the original and sprinkles a bit of magic on it, improving it ten-fold. Everything just seems so right about this game. The combat, the mental over the top levels and the musical score are some of the best things in gaming right now, not just in the hack ‘n’ slash and action/adventure genres, but in every genre. Quite easily one of the best games I’ve ever played and will maybe ever play again.

It is fast paced and it is just as good as the first Bayonetta. It doesn't do a lot to change upon the prior games formula but it is a rare instance where it is okay. It is an improvement not a game-changer. Both games are so much fun that it does not even matter. The story is just as jumbled and ludicrous as the first. These minor issues only occurred to me in retrospective because I was too busy having fun Expand
