Bayonetta 2 is a very long game if you go in planning to do everything. To get all of the LP records, to get all of the costumes, the skills, etcetera. It takes awhile and it also takes a little help. This book is a must have for those who wish to 100% it and those simply interested in Bayonetta alike. It features behind the scenes extras that are all absolutely beautiful and super interesting as well, especially to learn about the creation of the angels and demons. It's simply a must have for fans.

This Bayonetta 2 guide is a bit of a disappointment. It reaches the bar for being useful, barely. The most helpful part of the original Bayonetta guide from Future Press was using it to find all the different secret items and hidden verses scattered throughout the levels. The maps used very distinct icons and labeled them so you knew exactly what every pick up was. That's not the case here. Prima has just placed numbers on the maps where anything of note is, whether that be a Verse, an LP, or an Umbran Tear. It makes it very difficult to scan and look for collectibles.

In a "What were they thinking?" move, the points of interest are NOT listed in anything resembling the path players take through the level, meaning the first thing you encounter might be bullet point number 7 or maybe 42! The maps also don't note where the player starts or where the end is. All of this drastically reduces the usefulness of the maps as quick references to find things.

They do list tips and recommended weapons for all the verses, and they do list all the weapons and what chapters their found in, but we're missing the comprehensive coverage of all weapon combos and how much damage they do that the original game's guide had. No fancy bookmark either.

Finally, the "Behind the Scenes" content is all taken from the Platinum Games' blog, including URLS to the original posts - don't expect any unique content or insight here. So while the cover is nice, don't expect more than a bare minimum level of effort in the end product. I bought Prima's Hyrule Warriors guide recently, and it was a better product.

This is a mediocre product relative to the previous bayonetta guide. Future Press produced an incredibly detailed guide for the original game, which demonstrated in great detail how to get to grips with the game at every level - and in Bayonetta, there's so much depth to the systems, it warranted it. It was also, memorably, a beautifully designed and produced book, full of superb graphics, full colour map layouts, weapon and enemy breakdowns, using original production art and assets.

The bayonetta 2 guide is a lame collection of unreadable numbers, charts and jokey text. The most annoying thing is, in trying to locate secret events and verses in each chapter, the book's writer has laid out the sequencing completely upside down. So you might actually begin at event 24 on his map, and end at lower number - it makes absolutely no sense! Also, in listing the combo moves, it fails to describe even simple details like which combos are launchers - a highly important detail for a game based entirely on details like that! Weird - and lame.

Graphically, it is very colourful at least, but the screenshots are just eye candy - there's nothing visually explanatory. In terms of layout, it's fugly all the way through - everything stuck into boxes with text slugged underneath. Overall it gives the impression of being designed quickly for children, which is a shame. I'm still using the original Bayonetta guide as my reference for the move set, which remains essentially (or intuitively) the same for the sequel.

My buying advice: get Bayonetta 1, play that, get the future press guide for it if you can find it on ebay, then play bayonetta 2. You won't need this guide anyway by then!

I'll be honest, I bought it for the cover, because I truly appreciate the strong female form. It is beautiful. Luckily, the game is a straight classic, so they go hand in hand. Unfortunately, I had to open the book to learn some new combo moves, but that's all good, cause now I am ready. Bayonetta is the sexiest, strongest female character ever created. Buy the game too, please support Platinum Games.

remember guys its a strategy guide not an artbook-so dont expect full page art pics.
otherwise,its a nice collectible to have if you're a bayo fan
its written with a tad of humor too so its fun to read

it also comes with a code to get it digital-so thats cool.

This strategy guide is packed with good data. There are tips on how to Platinum each level. Combo data for every weapon. Lore information that expands on story. Each copy comes with a download code for digital version downloadable at Prima games website. Great combo along with game.
