Bayonetta

Strategy Informer

  • Conclusion: Bayonetta is an assured, impeccably well-crafted game overflowing with enough offbeat ideas to fuel a million action games, and if we were doling out medals of our own, we'd award Platinum Games with the highest possible accolade. Simply put, Bayonetta is worthy of nothing less than pure platinum.

  • Summary: As the game’s intriguing story about the Umbra Witches and Lumen Sages unfolds, Bayonetta reveals more than just the skin underneath her hair and heels. Our limber heroine is a magic powerhouse with a mind-boggling amount of extravagant combo moves and seamless animal transformations that give Kratos a run for his money. From Breakdance to Wicked Weave attacks, these moves are as fun to execute as they are to watch.

WR: Bayonetta (Xbox 360, PS3)

gameusagi.com
15 February 2010
  • Excerpt: Hideki Kamiya, director of Bayonetta and the man behind revered action titles such as the original Devil May Cry and Viewtiful Joe, brings us one of  most stylish and action-packed games of this console generation. Bearing elements of titles such as Devil May Cry and Ninja Gaiden, Bayonetta brings us a heroine whose sex appeal, moves and skills have not been seen since Lara Croft arrived on the scene in 1996.
  • Pros: Great character design, Plentiful cut-scenes, Fantastic character animation and design, Energetic music, Good voice acting for the main character, Easy to pull off special moves and combos, Fast, fluid and fun weapon-based combat, Interesting level design, Good number of levels with solid game length, Lots of hidden items and artifacts to collect
  • Cons: Hard to follow story that doesn’t become clear until the end, PS3 version suffers from slowdown and excessive loading times, Some of the lines and voice work for the supporting cast can be painful, Placement of target lock-on button (right bumper button) and need to keep it pressed is awful, Twitchy camera can obstruct view at times, Platforming sections are not nearly as much fun as the combat

Bayonetta (PS3)

  • Excerpt: Having already released in Japan last year, and a little earlier this year around the world, a lot of gamers have probably already heard a lot about the third-person action game, Bayonetta, so I’m going to try and (hopefully) confirm and/or dispel the general consensus regarding what many have hailed as the next great action game, but with room for improvement.

  • Pros: Superbly slick combo system that's as varied as it is exciting, Massive boss battles in stunning locations, Bayonetta. She kicks all sorts of ass and is funny too
  • Cons: The story. It's all over the place, Nowhere near enough Halos (currency) to buy everything in Rodin's shop, Certain QTEs are too fiddly

Platinum Games Pushes Action To Absurdity

Game Informer
22 December 2009
  • Conclusion: Concept: Take Devil May Cry, make the combat even better, and replace Dante with every fetish you can think of Graphics: Character and enemy models are remarkably detailed. Some of the environments are a bit bland, but others are downright beautiful Sound: The fluffy, poppy soundtrack is a fun and amusing deviation from the genre’s generic metal tendencies Playability: During standard combat, the controls are airtight.
