    Give it a chance!

    A blast to play, but not as memorable as the first

    It was strange that Nintendo would pick up an M rated property, especially one that is as sexualized and gory as Bayonetta. The original game put Platinum Games on the map as a great hack and slash developers. The game ... Read Full Review

    Eccentricity That Approaches Indulgence

    The eccentric production values, cut scenes, dialog and plot work well to a point. The director has used these elements well to frame the action well, though the repetition of 1) story (cut scene), 2) mild exploration, a... Read Full Review

    Utter perfection.

    For a game to earn a 10/10 review by Gamespot is such a rarity that when I found out Bayonetta 2 received that honor, I reserved it immediately, despite never having even heard of the series. Never have I regretted this ... Read Full Review
