Bayonetta excels in its combat, going above and beyond to entertain the player with the scale of its gigantic, angelic enemies and the depth of its gameplay. The tutorial teaches you the bare basics of punching and kicking, and then it's up to you to experiment with inputs and find the best com...
Angels in Bayonetta are far from how they are depicted in pop culture. Despite their bright glow and the religious music that you hear when they're introduced, they're hunched over, lumbering when they walk and fight in battle. They're designed in ways that definitely make them look li...
Bayonetta was originally released for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 back in 2009, but the game still holds up well over time. On the Nintendo Switch, you'll also get to enjoy the game at a steady 60 FPS and 720p resolution, with graphics that fit right in with the current generation.
Bayonetta is a character who exudes confidence and charm, and every aspect of the game's mechanics and design fits with her personality. She's over eight feet tall, wears a skin-tight suit that's actually made of her magical hair, and always fights with style and finesse. When you do a...
There will be a few times where you'll play through retro-inspired sequences where you race down a highway on a motorcycle, or shoot missiles at enemies from an airship. You have to handle quick time event button presses on the motorcycle and deal with a bunch of enemies firing at you on the sh...
While Bayonetta has some intriguing lore involving witches battling against a puritanical religion, you won't get to learn much about it. The storytelling is a mess, with sudden changes that don't make sense, and underdeveloped characters that the game expects you to care about. As long as...
You'll have to immediately learn all mechanics such as dodging, parrying, and attacking to beat them. From there on it's all about noticing patterns and maximizing the time you spend attacking. You also need to consider your positioning at all times and carefully plan your movements. All of...
The characters designed by Takashi Okazaki (creator of Afro Samurai) fit Furi’s cyberpunk themed world really well. Each one has a great background and unique style of art that really meshes with their fighting style. On top of that, the levels designs reflect each boss character’s personal hell, f...
Furi starts out easy, teaching you the various mechanics to beat the bosses. When the tutorial fight's over, each new battle gets increasingly more difficult. Bosses have more health, more phases, more abilities, and more patterns you have to memorize.You can set the difficulty to "Promena...
The action combat in Bayonetta 2 is less about arcadey hack-and-slash fighting and more about precise button inputs that are incredibly satisfying to perfect. Mastering combos allows you to string endless attacks to constantly put out damage in between dodging. Dodging attacks at the very last seco...
The music in Bayonetta 2 fits perfectly with the huge boss fights, the demonic locations you explore, and Bayonetta's own bombastic personality. While fighting against demons in some of the game's hellish environments, the chorus and violins are sinister and foreboding, giving you a sense...
Bayonetta 2 has a constant stream of gigantic boss fights set in amazing locations that are memorable because of how over-the-top they are. The enemies you fight against are huge in scope, with level designs that are creative and outlandish. For example, the prologue of the game is impressive, sh...
While not all of the humor is bad, a lot of it is over-the-top, and some of it lands flat in childish ways. Some of the characters feel like mere caricatures with the way they're constantly presented as comic relief. Depending on your tastes, you might find the humor charming, or it could bore...
Bayonetta 2's story is confusing to keep track of at times, and the plot points grow increasingly more ridiculous and over-the-top as the game progresses. The plot starts off fine enough with Bayonetta on a quest to save her best friend, but then other characters and motivations get thrown into...
You can recruit characters from the show and manga to help you in combat. While you can't control them directly, having them in your group allows to you unleash powerful combat buffs on-demand such as attack power increases and one shot kills. This provides a fun aspect to gameplay where you fe...
Choosing whether or not to unleash a sneak attack before the Titans notice you can be great fun when you pull it off, but downright hazardous when you mess up. It's a risk/reward system that allows for some rather interesting stealth strategy in an otherwise action-heavy game. Sneak attacks all...
Deciding what base to build is up to you, with each providing it's own benefit. This leaves a lot of room open for your own personal playstyle and strategy based on the battle at hand. Bases can be used for offense, defense, or supply generation. For example, if you find you're always runn...
You can swap and lock onto targets at will. Even though you'll be wildly attacking and zipping around the air in aerial acrobatics, control of where your attacks will land is easy to maintain. Whether you're attacking the arms, legs, or head of the massive Titans, you'll be able to lo...
The combat has a satisfying feel to it that never grows stale, so even after the long campaign, it still feels fresh. It's fast paced, fun, and zipping through the air never loses its appeal. Just like in the anime, you wear a jetpack type item called the ODM (Omni-Directional Mobility). It...
Majority of the story mode in Attack on Titan 2 is simply a retelling of the first game. This is perfectly fine for people new to the series, but if you've played the first game, prepare to see hours of the exact same cut scenes and boss fights before you get to the new stuff.
You are nothing more than a trainee that lives to serve the other characters. When interacting with them, there's no consistency in the dialogue options. Nor is there anything to denote your character has any kind of unique personality at all. It's hard to form an attachment or become inves...
Skills are unlocked by forming friendships with other characters. Choosing the "wrong" dialogue option during interactions prevents you from building this reputation, thus locking you out of certain skills. For example, if an NPC is bragging about how awesome he is, you either have to agr...
