Bayonetta is a stylish and cinematic action game, directed by Devil May Cry creator Hideki Kamiya, set for release in 2009 on the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. A member of an ancient witch clan and possessing powers beyond the comprehension of mere mortals, Bayonetta faces-off against countless angelic enemies, many reaching epic proportions, in a game of 100% pure, unadulterated all-out action. Outlandish finishing moves are performed with balletic grace as Bayonetta flows from one fight to another. With magnificent over-the-top action taking place in stages that are a veritable theme park of exciting attractions, Bayonetta pushes the limits of the action genre, bringing to life its fast-paced, dynamic climax combat.
Blurring the borders of good and evil, this cinematic and stylized adventure stars Bayonetta, a heroine bent on sending supernatural forces to the depths of hell. Armed with her four enchanted guns known as Scarborough Fair, she battles both monstrous behemoths and angelic enemies. By combining special magic attacks, summoning primal forces and unleashing devastating weaponry, she impressively punishes anyone who gets in her way. From its fluid and intuitive combat system to its gripping story line, Bayonetta is one action thriller that won't disappoint.

First off, the plot is great. You are a witch, who is the biggest badass on earth, and you fight angels with your sweet skills, and put them to death by summoning a bigger demon from the pits of hell via your Luscious hair. I know its hard to wrap your head around. But this game just blew me away with the massive boss fights, the intricate combat system, and the great style this game puts on. Not to mention the soundtrack. This game is one of the few that can pull off such a pop/techno style music in the background and get away with it. It just meshes well with the seductive, highly sexualized personality of Bayonetta. 'Twas just the right amount of story, fighting, and Quick Time events. Be prepared to have your mind blown for the boss fights and the finishers
Just a fun game to blast through in a couple hours. It took me about 7 or 8 hours on normal. I felt like i got a bargain getting this game for $6.00. It;s definitely worth it.
I would recommend this to anyone looking to open their mind to becoming an Angel-slaying Pop Witch Diva
I haven't played any of the Devil May Cry series, but it seems that this game uses a similar combat/reward system. As a plebe, I played the game on Easy (automatic) mode because when it comes to fighting games I can't be bothered to learn absurd button combos. In this mode, the gameplay experience felt quite streamlined with only a minimum of gripes for loading times, long cutscenes, or "yet another stupid death" moments.
Almost any screenshot from the game would be suitable for framing. It's gorgeous. I could, though, feel the 360 being strained when lots of things were going on during combat and in certain locations. Mainly this arises as vertical sync and screen tearing issues. They never really hampered gameplay, as there's no sniping and no online lag to worry about. Notably, these issues were quite specific to certain locations (Chapter 2 for instance), so most of the game is well-optimized for the 360.
The plot is kind of bonkers and tough to follow until you get to the endgame and can make sense of it all. As a result, if you are prone to picking up and putting this game down throughout your playthrough (as I did), returning to the game will feel quite jarring, especially if you're dropped into a boss fight. Boss fights are roughly half of the game play, so this happened a few times...
Overall a great addition to the 7th gen lineup. Although Bayonetta 2 has been announced for the Wii U, this felt like a one-off that deserves all of the praise thrown at it.
I played this nearly back-to-back with DmC, and it really highlights how much of a departure that was from the main DMC series. If you want DMC5 then look no further than Bayonetta. DmC is very open on the surface, but the reality is that there is no incentive to explore or learn the system. A few simple moves will utterly destroy every challenge on every difficulty. Bayonetta, on the other hand, constantly switches up the formula and never allows you to get too comfortable with any one strategy. DmC
Bayonetta also carries the same tone as the original DMC games. It has similar gameplay, and even a fistful of homages through cutscenes and gameplay. Simply put, Bayonetta is a video game that revels in being a video game.
Engaging gameplay once you get used the hair-twirling combat. Can be difficult at times and even frustrating but you won't get "ninja gaiden" frustrated with its difficulty. Also this version is the best out of the two platforms since Platinum Games have stated that the 360 version was the leading platform so you won't com across any real issues with the game concerning with things like bugs.
I recommend this game to anyone who likes this genre.
