Sorry, but this game is bad......

I rented this game and figured it would be a fun hack/slash game. I like those every once in a while to give a change to my usual FPS games. But good grief this game sucks.
The graphics are last gen at best, the gameplay is all over the place and clunky even for a Hack/Slash. The story and cutscenes are pointless and don't translate well because I would spend most of the time trying to figure out what was going on. The cutscenes are also long and pretty much a knock off of some anime movies.
I didn't last long in this game. It shows a little tease of nudity to try and keep you interested, but unless you are a young kid with no access to the internet, then maybe this can be a selling point for you.
All in all, it only took me 20 minutes to think, "Do I really want to spend hours playing this game that I am hating right off the start?"
I would only recommend this game to someone who loves japanese anime craziness, stories that make little sense, and a poorly made button masher where battles devolve into a big mess of confusing spectacle. Also, you have to be desperately desiring to see the side of a boob of some poorly rendered video game girl.

This game had potential. I wanted to give it a chance but that potential was not realized.

Any rating higher then a 5 is a blatant slap in he face falsehood to all real good games.

seductive sultry but not revealing heroine
cool finishers i did like those
thats about it

graphics not bad but should be better by todays standards
cutscenes laughable and arcady(sega Time Crisis esque)
gameplay predictable and not flowing well

overall just a mediocre game with unrealized good potential

Bayonetta has to be one of the most well formed games i have played. This is inventive along the lines of god of war. Some of the dancing gets annoying at times but other than that a good mix of combos and weapons. This game makes you think as a player and does not allow you to button mash and be successful. The fighting style makes you pay attention to the entire way through. It was a very enjoyable game and would recommend that anyone that likes video games to play this game.
