Well, this is gonna be amusing. Of all the games out there, it just had to be a Wii U game as well.

I have a feeling the next AAAA will be Star Citizen.

It has been more than four years since GameSpot gave a game a 10 score with Super Mario Galaxy 2 being the last game. It also suprises me that a Wii U game received this score before the Xbox One and PS4.

Nice I knew my Wii U would be useful at some point. Then again I dont care for review scores, but I was always buying the game regardless.

Nintendo always giving what the fans wants.

Edit:

Little do the GameSpot people know that their current top comment on the review is a hermit! Mass hysteria will follow when this is discovered.

Wii U is destroying PS4 and XB1 in exclusives. Only console not disappointing right now...who would of thought? Too bad Wii U has no third party or it would be the best console overall by a mile.

Polygon gave it a 7.5, lol. That's not unsurprising, coming from them, and considering this game. Here's their genius conclusion:

BAYONETTA 2'S BLATANT OVER-SEXUALIZATION PUTS A BIG DENT IN AN OTHERWISE GREAT GAME

When Platinum Games is on, it's really, really on, and Bayonetta 2 is in almost any respect that counts a better game than the first, whose mechanics were already exemplary. But every time I'd feel on a roll, enjoying my time with Bayonetta 2 immensely, I'd be broken out of it by another cheap shot of T&A. I would be wrecking a flock of angelic or demonic enemies, sliding in and out of witch time almost at will, and then the special weapon I had picked up became a literal stripper pole for Bayonetta to dance on, because ... well, because, I guess.

I won't guess why the blatant over-sexualization is still there, often more intensely than before. But it causes an otherwise great game to require a much bigger mental compromise to enjoy.

This shit gives me cancer.

Not surprising that Mark Walton would give a Wii U exclusive a perfect score, he's the biggest Nintendo fanboy on Gamespot staff by far. I'd wait for more reviews before rushing out and buying a console over this score.

Didn't see that coming.

I've never played Bayonetta before, but this is actually impressive for the Wii U's scarce 3rd party library.

Now, if only sheep start buying this, maybe 3rd party developers may actually follow suit.

At the time of posting this, it has a metascore of 91. With only 2 out of 10 reviews being below 9 and 4 out of 10 being a perfect 10/10.

Edit: Moved up to a 93.

Frankly when Galaxy 2 got a 10 my prayers were finally answered. A AAAAE that didn't bore me to tears :P

Games scoring AAAAE are always amusing, seeing cows fawn over such an awful game though was hilarious, but got tiring after a while. MGS4 was easily the weakest entry in the series.

Damage control? More like being realistic. I hope the game does well because the first Bayonetta was incredible, but one dude's opinion means relatively little in the big scheme of things.

Even the worst games get perfect scores from some reviewers.

Bradley shoemaker probably gonna try to hold our team down with his tom foolery.

Watch now LTO, all these nintendo people gonna hop on our bandwagon like we weren't the ones leading the charge on the Bayonetta love in spite of the game being handcuffed to pretendo.

This game actually looks like it deserves the score, at least from the videos I've seen, unlike some of the other 10s that were given out previously. Too bad I can't afford to buy a system just for one game. (consoles are rather expensive where I come from, given no official channels of distribution and other reasons)

He's the one reviewing it? Hmm... Well, it's not DOTA, so probably, yeah. I don't wanna watch that Quick Look until I've played the game.

rofl, true. omg bayonetta so awesome was in on this day one and all that!
