5.0 out of 5 stars A demon dog about to use an angel as a chew toy. Think this is crazy? It's not even the second level yet., 2 April 2010
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Bayonetta (PS3) (Video Game)
In Bayonetta, the following chapters promise and provide even more over-the-top sights and action than you could reasonably expect from one game. From moon powered wall-walking, to a level that takes place entirely on a missile; this game by Platinum Games is both a masterpiece in showing off and an in-depth effort.

While those who aren't too skilled at action games can get away with spamming the seemingly overpowered sword attacks and dodging when they can, the more experienced will be glad to know that there's as much reason to play as they have time to do so. With dozens of unlockable new weapons, attacks, abilities and costume changes (each costing a hefty amount of Halos; the in game currency), it's gonna be a while before you can claim full completion of this title. And that's not even mentioning the difficulty of the Trophies; the irritation of not catching one of those crows for the 15th time in a row; or going back to old levels to improve your rank... Most games of this type have bronze awards handed out at the end of the level for a better than average performance, and reserving gold or platinum for a top quality player on a good day. Bayonetta gives out these rewards at the end of every battle; starting from stone (rock-bottom you might say) to pure platinum (getting nothing less than a platinum the whole way through). The number of times that caught me out on a run...

There are a few areas of concern in what is otherwise a fantastic game. In levels of the game that involve altered gravity, falling or tumbling airplanes, a few glitches have been known to occur and unfairly cause death; and there is also a few graphical problems caused in cut-scenes by having Bayonetta wear an alternate outfit in them; it appears only her initial clothes are fully programmed into them, so you get her hat moving into other characters heads and so on. The combat can also get repetitive quickly if you don't earn enough for new abilities often or if you don't experiment a little. Overall, Bayonetta is a great game that will provide hours of fun for anyone ready and willing to get over a steep learning curve and isn't too picky about plot details (the real story isn't picked up for a few chapters).
