    Default Bayonetta

    just got this game yesterday...i'm still having trouble finding a word better than amazing to describe it.

    it's fun. like, this is the first game in a while that i've actually enjoyed playing. Ninja Gaiden was kind of like, just playing to play...but Bayonetta is everything DMC and NG are, remove all the annoying and crappy parts, and add even more style and flair.

    i'm only on the 4 level so far, but i'm totally loving this game. it probably helps that Youji Shimamura, action director for Versus, had a hand in the action sequences. everything is so stylized and fun to watch.

    this game doesn't re-invent the wheel in any way, but it's the best there is at what it does. play it!

    I got to play the demo early since I am a member of SegaPass (go figure, hehehe), and I really enjoyed the demo.

    I am happy that the rest of the game is holding up to the demo.

    I got the early demo pass as well, and I thought it was just weird. It's a good action game, a bit too much on the beat-em-up side of things for my taste, but the design is too odd. I don't think I'll be forgetting it anytime soon, though.

    I hear the PS3 version blows compared to the 360 version, which sucks for me.

    I did not know that. I really enjoyed Versus, too.

    'Tis true, but from what I understand, Sega and Sony are working overtime to bridge the gap before the US release.

    Put in a pre-order. I was on the fence, due me sucking at playing the game, but recently I've improved considerably. I wish we were getting that special Climax edition of the game.

    I finally got to run thru the demo a couple of times. Lots of action going on, almost to the point of being too chaotic. It has potential though and I enjoyed the torture kills. I'll have to check out the full game once it hits a lower price.

    I will probably never play this game. But, no matter how done to death it has been already, I will find the protagonist's resemblance to Sarah Palin endlessly amusing. Endlessly.

    There's a versus mode? Or are you talking about something entirely different?
    Everything in the above post is opinion unless stated otherwise.

    I played the demo also. I gotta agree with 1 2 P. Way too much going on to the point I could not tell if I was winning or losing. Some cool moves though.

    Reminds me of Devil May Cry meets Marvel Vs. Capcom with a whole lotta chaos thrown in.

    Just making sure you guys realize that he is playing the full game(Japanese release) on PS3. Not the demo or anything of the sort. Just checking as most have replied with things regarding the demo.

    yea, sorry. should have been more clear.

    the ps3 version seems 5by5 in my opinion, but then again i didn't compare it to the 360 version. honestly, if it was only on ps3, you wouldn't know the difference.

    i've since finished the game, and took a break before making a platinum run. there are a few levels towards the end (no spoilers!) that are kind of frustrating, but a) seems to be Kamiya's MO, and b) i do kind of suck at it...so it's all good.

    I just bought this today, for the 360.

    I'm only on chapter 2 and all I can say is "WOW!!!"

    It totally exceeed the expectaions I had from the demo.

    Finally, a game worth of the Sega brand. Those have been sorely lacking, lately.

    played the demo a coupla weeks ago. i wasn't impressed. i mean, in a technical sense it's quite good. no slowdown even with all the action going on, plus it's a tad button-mashy, which is the way i like my brawlers. i just don't like the style: the overblown main character, the wonky camera, and the use of irritating j-pop.

    The J-pop that was in the demo seems like it was replaced with more 'Americanized' techno. Maybe they did it for the western audience, but the music doesn't seem as annoying as it did in the demo.

    But so far, the descriptions for this game have been spot on - it's like a hyper-sexualized Devil May Cry meets Ninja Gaiden/God Of War.

    The fighting system is very fluid, good upgrade system, plenty of unockables, great replayability... Of course, no multiplayer would be a drawback to most people - not me. This should tide me over until Bioshock 2.

    I tried the demo and found it to be like DMC on steroids with hair powers. While I enjoyed it, I don't think I enjoyed it enough to pay 60.00 for it. May pick it up used or wait for the eventual price drop.

    I beat it on Normal last night. You wanna talk about epic.... While the story made no sense, the ending was just more grand than anything I've ever seen before. I'm currently playing it again on Hard.

    Lot of nice homages to Gears of War and Devil May Cry in some cutscenes. And the Space Harrier stage was a nice touch!

    My friend picked this up on Saturday and I was watching him play it, the game looks like it would be really fun. My bro said he was a little less than halfway thru the game, but the level design had the epicness of like the last boss of a final fantasy. Really cool.
