version: jp - year: 2009 - developer: platinum games - publisher: sega - format: xbox 360, dvd - condition: mint - rarity: common

The Xbox 360 version is apparently a lot better than the PS3 version.


The character design is really good, although some people complained about the oversexualizated depiction of women. Or something.


Bayonetta has an unbelievable amount of moves at her disposal


Some of the Torture Attacks are fairly entertaining


Bayonetta's animations are maybe the best I have ever seen in a videogame


On the teeth!



Review - Bayonetta is everything Devi May Cry 4 should have been and more!

A strong lead character, inventive bosses, mind-boggling special moves, over the top action and an interesting gothic / surreal setting with outrageous architectural structures disseminated everywhere.

As a 3rd person action game, Bayonetta is tight.

The fighting system is intuitive, versatile, and allows to chain an unbelievable amount of spectacular moves.

In this game, despite the huge array of moves at your disposal, nothing feels random. Some bosses require specific moves to be performed in order to deal maximum damage to them or simply, in order to survive.

I played the whole game on the standard difficulty level, and I must say that I felt challenged but never unfairly.

Graphically, Bayonetta small levels allow for an incredible amount of details both in terms of characters and environment, and all the goodness is delivered at a super smooth frame rate, especially on the Xbox 360. This version is indeed regarded as being superior compared to the choppier and less detailed PS3 version.

What is really mind boggling is the animation of Bayonetta herself though. She moves like a jaguar, and has none of the usual blockiness or clunckiness of many 3D character models which are out there.

Bottom line: I fully recommend playing this game if you haven’t already, and if you enjoyed niche games such as Magatama or Otogi, then you will find their natural evolution in Bayonetta. 9/10
