Excerpt: Not until the advent of Bayonetta has cracking angelic skulls been so addictive. Guiding the busty, bodacious witch babe Bayonetta, the object is to slice, whip, shoot, kick, and crush the forces of light whilst gathering Sonic -like rings for purchasing new weapons and combo attacks. Oh yes, there is eye candy. Oh yes, there is booty-shaking. And oh lord yes, there is action, action, and more action!
Excerpt: Mature games that treat adult gamers as adults are a more prevalent happening these days, though nowhere near to the extent that one might expect. SEGA’s and Platinum Game’s Bayonetta, with its eponymous, potentially embarrassing leading lady and Juvenile OTT action, is far from being part of this elusive group.
Mature, graphic brawler about a witch fighting angels.

Summary: Parents need to know that this game contains lots of violence, blood, and foul language. With the former, the heroine can perform all kinds of deadly attacks against heaven's angels, using her feet and hands as well as weapons and black magic. She can also summon instruments of torture, such as an iron maiden, or call on demonic beasts to rip apart her enemies.
Conclusion: It's honestly no exaggeration to say that every hour spent playing this game felt exactly like an hour. I didn't enjoy myself or the game and was happy to hang up my controller at the end of each session. I'll earn several down votes for this review, but I thought it was important to get a viewpoint at the complete opposite end of the spectrum to the others available.
Conclusion: Bayonetta tient donc ses promesses et accède donc au rang des meilleurs jeux du genre. Soigné, détaillé, diversifié, envoûtant, le titre nous emporte dans sa frénésie et nous séduit par des mises en scènes originales. Tout amateur de beat'em all pourra se laisser convaincre les yeux fermés, et découvrira une expérience de jeu rarement aussi plaisante.
Pros: Prise en main confortable, Mises en scène des coups spéciaux, Des boss de haut niveau, Effets spéciaux, Rythme du jeu
Summary: : Bayonetta is pretty much the action game Devil May Cry 4 should have been, and it’s a fantastic second effort from Platinum Games that no fan of the genre should be without. The story is acceptable when it’s serious and awesome when it’s not, the graphics are equal parts artistically brilliant and technically stunning, the audio is outstanding on all fronts. Quite simply, the game is awesome to play.
Conclusion: Bayonetta is an action-packed game, and if you consider yourself a fan of games like Devil May Cry or God of War, you owe it to yourself to check this one out. The gameplay really is excellent, and though the story leaves much to be desired, the excellent combat more than makes up for this shortcoming.
