Decent action title,
This review is from: Bayonetta (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
i dont know why this games received such critical acclaim, its hardly anything new. its the same game you played way back when the original (and best) Devil May Cry came out, just with a new aesthetic
DMC had a gothic/horror aesthetic, which worked really well because the style didnt date.
Bayonetta has a religious mythology/anime (its hard to describe, its kind of like western fantasy elements fused with anime) aesthetic and ends up looking very lovely, although its too soon to tell how good it'll stay
gameplay is not that original. it's essentially a B/Y button masher, which is satisfying, but can feel mindless until you're good at it.
theres quite alot to unlock. i bought this game because i wanted a solid action game for my xbox, i was satisfied. admittedly, i played through once and haven't gone back to it yet, and thats partly to do with the absurd/embarrassing sexualisation. but when i feel like playing it again, there'll be plenty for me to come back to.
a solid game, for £20 (thanks amazon) you can't go far wrong
