What Gamespot Users have to say about Bayonetta

  • Rating:9

    An impressive action game, even after so much time.

    It's pretty hard to believe that "Bayonetta" has now been out for 11 years (10 in the US). It's probably also hard to believe that I didn't play the game myself until the 2018 re-release on the Switch. I remember watchin... Read Full Review

    There are no Bayonets but i'm not taking it back

    Bayonetta was one of the best hack and slash games of all time. It's so wacky and random and yet so elegant and stylish. 15 year old me thought this game was amazing and you can see why. STORY Bayonetta is about a wit... Read Full Review

    Bayonetta

    This was my first time playing Bayonetta which I heard was released on PS3, Xbox 360, PC, and Wii U, but I decided to try out the game on the Nintendo Switch. This game did not disappoint me at all. I researched a lot a... Read Full Review

    Solidifies the genre to its core.

    Lets get the negativeness out of the way first. I cannot recommend this game to those who do not enjoy beat em ups in its most hardcore form. Although the difficulty is way too perfect for any type of player, it is best... Read Full Review

    It's a real treat. I love it.

    The game is a hack and slash with tons of enemies and so many bosses. You're Bayonetta, a witch who must uncover her past and , as well, fight evil along the way. It's a game based on the eternal fight between good and ... Read Full Review

    Bayonetta is a witch with a heart of gold

    Most games that focus more on sex appeal are often lacking in everything else. Understandably a sexy female protagonist got my interest too. But I was pleasantly surprised by how much more it offered besides a sexy take ... Read Full Review

    A game that will fly you to the Moon!

    Bayonetta is just one of those games that I instantly fell in love with. The wit, the charm, the sex appeal, and the campy-ness of said sex appeal. Just everything about Bayonetta oozes with glory to gaming, and what the... Read Full Review

    Good but not great - button mashing ahoy

    So, id have to say that Bayonetta is not bad, slightly crazy, but overall not my thing. Whilst some of the bosses are settings are quite frankly insane, it really didnt appeal to me that much for the following reasons: ... Read Full Review

    A strangely charming, but extremely challenging game

    Bayonetta awakes from a 500 year sleep with little memory of her past. She begins to piece together her memories whilst searching for a mysterious item known as The Eyes of the World. She is part of the Umbran Witches wh... Read Full Review
