Like Devil May Cry, with slightly more cleavage shots...!,
This review is from: Bayonetta (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I was amazed at this game when I played it, it is incredibly like Devil May Cry!! Only our heroine prefers to show off a lot more flesh and writhe around sexily rather than just a few quick sarcastic jibes and moody pouting like our good friend Dante.
This game is very fast paced and easy pick up, of course you have to look every where if you are going to understand what to do and you most likely will have to take several tries before you get the hang of this game. But here in a nutshell are the goods and the bads:
~ Parts of the story are good: the fact that you are bad versus good (as in hell vs heaven) is something I personally haven't come across very much so it's a nice diversity.
~ The battle system is fun and there are many different combos and weapons to choose from.
~ The heroine may be borderline slutty but she's no bimbo and she has a strong british accent too, a rarity for most femme fatales
~ There are little side misssions and experiments and collectables - always a nice little extra in a game
~ The storyline is completely crazy and doesn't explain a lot, often forgetting points.
~ Sometimes the amount of sexualisation can get a bit weary
~ As it's pretty much a play by play level you will essentially be doing a lot of the same things over and over again
~ Without a guide, or some reliable source, there is no way you are going to know where some things are in this game.
~ Certain tasks/ levels can borderline impossible
~ It doesn't explain all that much to you, both storyline and gaming instructions
Overall a fun game just for slashing up the good guys ("being bad never felt so good"). But nothing immensely engaging and if you have played devil may cry I would'nt expect any suprises from this game.
