Bayonetta - Summary

Bayonetta™ is a cinematic, stylized action game from the creative mind of renowned game developer Hideki Kamiya (creator of the Devil May Cry series), featuring a stylish and sexy heroine poised to become the next video game icon. In this epic battle, Bayonetta faces off against countless angelic enemies ranging in size from small minions to gigantic behemoths bringing to life a game of one hundred percent pure action.

  • Top developer pedigree: Built from the ground up by PlatinumGames, a newly formed studio from gaming's most celebrated development teams (of the Devil May Cry and Resident Evil series).
  • Unique, sexy female lead character: Bayonetta is a graceful, stylish, all-action heroine with a distinctive character design that plays an integral part with her special attacks.
  • Angelic enemies: Fight against uniquely crafted angelic enemies casting a new light on good and evil.
  • Groundbreaking acrobatic gameplay: Bayonetta wields an impressive arsenal of weapons on her hands and feet through an intuitive and fluid combat system unrivalled in gaming. She unleashes deadly combos and special attacks with devastating results.
  • Interchangeable weapons: In addition to her four enchanted guns called Scarborough Fair, Bayonetta can unlock an array of weapons from shotguns, bazookas and fiery claws, and can also battle with a variety of other weapons retrieved from fallen enemies.
  • Special attacks: Bayonetta can unleash gruesome Torture Attacks such as the Iron Maiden, Guillotine and more to finish off enemies and send them to hell by charging her Magic gauge. Or successfully link combo attacks together to summon a demon to execute dynamic attacks. To eliminate the upper ranks of her foes, Bayonetta's hair serves as a magical conduit to summon the Beasts of Hell, and Bayonetta can also call upon the Beast Within, her primal forces, transforming into various beasts (panthers, bats, etc.) according to the situation.

Why do Xbox gamers allow such masterpieces to under perform sales wise? Bayonetta is a masterpiece; the 360 got the best version... yet not many played it. Shame.

Best action game of the 7th gen, taking the crown from God of War. Only about 10 games truly wowed me this past gen, and this was one of them.
