 A great game, but not for everyone

| | See all iqqillon's reviews (2)

Let me start with, it's a great game. One of the best I have on my PS3 and one of the greatest of 2010 at the moment.
The action is great and it has a unique style and difficulty. But both of those aren't for everyone.
The style is heavy on the demon and angel motive with a lot of over the top sexist poses and impossible action scenes thrown in. Though fun, some people might detest this.
One time you're fighting burning angels, the next you are ridding a bike on a missle flying into space! It's insane!

The combo system is near perfect. Since the game slowly forces you to master it. After finishing on Normal you'll have a general idea, after Hard you'll be really good, but after Inf.Climax you'll be great at it. Do note that the difficulty is indeed insane at some points, and I mean "Demon's Souls eat your heart out" insane.

Most people also complain about issues that came from the porting. Since the latest patch these things are almost not an issue anymore.
There is some slowdown when there are 10-20+ enemies on the screen, but the loadingtimes and screen-tearing are fixed mostly!

Try the demo on PSN to see if you like the style and the combatsystem. But I tend to just yell BUY IT. It's a great game!

This must be some game on the 360 to have gotten the rave reviews it has because ultimately on the PS3 I'm afraid to say that it's a different affair.

First the good bits. The game has good varied boss battles, tons and tons of moves to master, plenty of power ups to purchase and is pretty lengthy to boot.

However, the bad bits are glaringly obvious. Being a port of the 360 game no doubt the graphics are washed out & grainey, animation is choppy and as a result it becomes difficult to see exaclty what is going on when things get really hairy and hectic on screen. Load times are also silly due to the abscence of a hardrive installation option as is the norm with most games on the PS3. The results are that load times in between levels are lengthy, in-game loads are far too frequent and very annoying for a game that is focused on fluid combat.

This might sound like nitpicking but as Bayonetta was being billed as the new action figure to knock em dead it falls some way short. Compared next to the competent DMC4, excellent NG Sigma 2 (which is the way a 360 game should be made on the ps3) and upcoming GOW 3 the technical flaws really stand out. A muddled story line doesn't help either something at least the other titles were strong on.

Being offline sadly I can't comment on the possible patches that might fix some/all of the problems mentioned but somehow I doubt they could as the game on the PS3 was a case of poor programming to begin with. Overall it's worth a look at a bargain price but just don't go expecting a GOW killer flaw or no flaws.

 Impaled by its' own idiocy.

"Less is more". Common phrase. I wish the creators of Bayonetta had listened to this. The game is atrocious. My true feelings cannot be uttered in this review as they could be seen as "offensive". The graphics are the only above-poor element of the entire game. Gameplay is erratic and overly-difficult and music is charming at first but becomes repetitive literally within a few minutes. But the worst bits? The voice-acting and script. You know when foreign films are dubbed incorrectly and the plot becomes incoherent? This is worse. Characters are so idiotic that I wanted to slap them for most of the game. It seems like the creators were ignoring the genius of Devil May Cry and God of War and were intentionally trying to sink to the subterranean depths of Ninja Gaiden. Heck, Ninja Gaiden is actually BETTER! Shocking. Another terrible fact is that the game is useless at everything. As a hack/slash action adventure? Bad. But the single motorcycle level? Possibly the worst level in the history of gaming.To conclude, this game is not only horrific, disastrous, abominable and beastly, it is also utter garbage. Avoid like the plague unless you like unoriginal and boring adventures with a low-IQ Sarah Palin lookalike.

I really wanted to love this game but its a bitter disappointment, the constant bombardment of cut scenes and load screens kill the flow of game-play and the music could only be worse if it was free-form jazz.
Game-play: 6/10
Graphics: 7/10
Music: 0/10
