This game is tight dawg! xD,
This review is from: Bayonetta (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
A review from Benny, please read :D
I'd like to start off that this game is FREAKIN' AWESOME. Although I haven't completed it, this game has took my breath away. I'm currently up to chapter 8, so far, the game has not been a let down. The game genre that appeals to me the most would be an action/adventure game or a 'Hack n' Slash' game. This game fits the bill. Let me also say that if you enjoy the Devil May Cry series you will certainly enjoy this, or at least, give it a try.
Now let me talk about the visuals/graphics. "Beautiful". As Rodin would say. The game runs smoothly at 60 FPS, I see no frame rate drops or screen tear on this version. As for the PS3 version, that one may be disappointing, as I have played it at my cousins house. I am not taking sides or anything, I'm just saying that the PS3 version is a terrible port of the 360 version, thus giving it laggy gameplay, etc. The aesthetic quality is amazing, the colours are very bright and vivid, especially in different levels such as 'Paradiso'.
Ok, now let me talk about the difficulty options of the game. This game has difficulties from very easy to normal. From what I've seen anyway, there is no hard mode, maybe you have to beat the game to unlock it?
I started this game well on the normal difficulty, as I progressed through different levels, I noticed the game started to get alot more tougher than usual. The bosses are very challenging, with a little health bar you possess and maybe one recovery item that won't even fill half of that. Sometimes I would have to switch on easy mode, which would give me a bigger life bar and less damage from enemies. The difficulty doesn't affect my rating on this game whatsoever. I love challenging games :D
Moving on to the gameplay. The character you play as, Bayonetta, a seductive woman with a strong sexual appeal and god like powers. Bayonetta has a wide range of moves, from huge heels to break dancing to slowing down time. You can unlock more moves which will cost you points WHICH you score from the levels you play in. The better you progressed through that level the more points you earn. Usually halo's represent the points system. There's also a huge selection of weapons to choose from, her regular weapons would be the two guns she uses. They are upgradable. And she can possess four weapons at once. Switching from the two. I.e. using swords and guns. She also has a morphing ability, but you can find that out for yourself ;)
The Bosses are huge! At the beginning of the game I thought the first boss was huge, as you progress through each level, the boss you noticed at the beginning is a little baby compared to the rest, seriously. They are very challenging. The enemies, they're also a pain in the butt. But I must say that it will not get boring as different enemies appear around the corner each time! I guess you can call them sub-bosses. Sometimes you may have to face two...or four. The levels are stunning and not repetitive, you will fight through different types of environments. From hellish volcanic structures to heavenly calm arenas.
I haven't got most of the story yet but only because I have just begun the game, so I cannot comment on that part yet, but, so far so good. I can say alot more, but I want to save it until I complete the game. If this review or other reviews isn't enough, look up gameplay videos on YouTube or download the demo version!
I hope you enjoyed my review :D
