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.
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.
Excerpt: Some games are made to be easy to pick up and play so that anyone can quickly get stuck in and start having fun. Other games are necessarily more complex, requiring detailed controls or play styles to be learned before the, often deeper game, opens up and starts rewarding the gamer for all that effort. Every now and then though a game comes along which manages to be both simple and deep, games like Tetris, Doom or Burnout. Classics.
Excerpt: "Seven years ago I created Devil May Cry. Many of you have said that it kick-started the action genre into 3D, but did it really? Have action games really progressed past what we accomplished seven years ago? I don't believe they have. We as creators have squandered the opportunity to make things better, smoother, more intense, more engaging; that is why I have come back to 3D action.
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.
