If you ever wondered what Dante from Devil May Cry would like if he was a chick, and that chick got naked EVERY time she did a special move then Bayonetta would catch your attention.
So what I get from the story is that there are 2 factions, a light side and a dark side, that watch over all the events of the world. They weren’t at war and they respected one another. Then “something” took place and put the two factions against each other.
Bayonetta is the protagonist in this game. What can I say about Bayonetta? She is very feminine for a gun totting, sword swing, demon/angel slayer. Did I already mention that her clothes fall off when ever she gets into a combo or special move? To see her at rest on the screen kind puts me in a odd position because her stance is simply odd. When she walks its quite provacative. I actually checked to make sure my daughter wasn’t coming in the room.
With all that said I thought the game play would be lacking, I was wrong. The game play does put you in the mind of Devil May Cry but has a more precise feel to it. And you can interact with almost everything on the screen. Another nice point with Bayonetta is after you defeat an enemy you can pick up their weapons and use them against other enemies.
Graphically, the game is beautiful and the transitions from cut scenes to live gameplay are seemless. There were even points when I caught myself in a button mashing frenzy and realized that I was no longer in control of Bayonetta. I also love watching the different torture moves you can perform when your magic gauge is full.
All around I have high hopes for this game when its released. Stay tuned for a full review.
