Thoughts on Bayonetta:
Regardless of the absolutely unecessary amount of sexual innuendos and themes, the combat is deep, rewardings, stylish, and just pure fun. This is a good example of a game doing well what games were originally intended: have interactive fun. Being a fan of the Devil May Cry series, I must say this game can hold a candle gameplay wise. If you look past the sex, which is increasingly harder to do, then you have yourself a gem of a gameplay experience.

The game is good, but disappointing after promising so much. The voice acting is some of the best in games, the story is above average, the original soundtrack (in the few times its present) is excellent, the narration (in the few times its present) is also good. The gameplay is...not bad, but not great. The cover system is grabby. The graphics cant decide whether they want to be awesome or shitty. There are next to no side quests. There is almost no need for money. Not enough significant occurances story-wise. An extremelly good cast of characters, though. Very good. The game also misses plenty of opportunities. The city is wonderful and diverse in structure and architect to the point where you can almost remember where to go and where your at without lookin at a map, although I know for a fact this would be commonplace if there were SIDE MISSIONS. But regardless, it is something I have not seen in a sandbox game since GTA: San Andreas
