Summary: XXX-BBB-XX-AB-X. This is the experience of playing Bayonetta. A skilled player can probably string together a stream of combos but for me, it was just a matter of hammering whatever buttons I saw fit. No real thought went into it but it seemed to get the job done: I coasted through the game without hardly ever being in danger. Yes, it was in on one of the easier settings but I'm glad I didn't put the effort in because the game doesn't deserve it.
Summary: I find this game painful to play, the first 2 hours I was really enjoying the game but when they started introducting new game mechanics it went down hill for me. I really DIDN'T enjoy a whole level of riding the motor cycle through the same roads over and over, or another level of the same but with a rocket and pauses for bosses, or another whole level consisting of jumping around a plane avoiding a giant shoe.
Summary: I was gifted this game over christmas and with the reviews and ratings expected something challenging, graphically entertaining and generally exciting. What I ended up with was an admittedly well crafted cinematic experience which is more film than game and as for the playability it is just repetative level after repetative level.
An incredible disappointment from a much-hyped game

Summary: I was going to postpone buying anything new for my XBOX 360 until Bioshock 2 came out, but some good reviews for Bayonetta persuaded me to shell out the readies. I wish I hadn't Bayonetta is an incredible mess of a game, moreso as it does contain some incredible flashes of laugh-out-loud genius. Where does it go wrong? The camera is dizzying, the combat is little more than an exercise in button mashing, the cut scenes are too many and tedious with it.
Excerpt: Tras jugar a este juego, lo que os vais a encontrar es un juego que entra muy bien a la vista. Bonitos graficos, correcta banda sonora, la jugabilidad tipica de la compañia nipona Sega (la creadora del titulo que nos ocupa) pero su lastre mas importante, esta en la durabilidad del titulo.
