Did not care for this game to much.

Did not like this game at all. I had it for one day and wanted to send it back already. For starters Normal difficulty feels like it could be the hardest difficulty for other games! Then if you switch it to easy, and your two year old cousin can beat it. The camera? No good. Want Non-stop action? Like literally? Get this game. You fight one big monster only to fight yet another 5 seconds later only to fight two medium sized monsters 2 seconds later. It goes on and on and on and on. On a better note, Bayonetta has some pretty good moves. She can break dance! But yeah personally don't like the game.

There was more hype on this title then was legitimate. It's an o.k. game can get somewhat repititious in quite a few levels.

Worth a rental definitely, a buy? Not for me.

Good: This game pushes the Xbox to its potential with Bayonetta's visuals, creating a large buffet of enemies appearing in shiny lights, cutscenes of incredible proportion, and a bust that never stops hogging the spotlight.
All of Bayonettas torture techniques are visually stunning. The eroticism doesn't seem to stop, even when obliterating the bodies of many angels. While playing, you may ask yourself 'Is this the creation of an incredibly lonely nerd with an urge that could only be satisfied by a digital woman killing waves of monsters with very little ease and then asking 'do you want to touch me?'' The answer is unanimously yes.
I do enjoy how pick-up weapons have a certain lifespan, giving Bayonetta a wider range of melee attacks. By herself, she has quite an array of kicks and punches that can be increased through purchasing moves in the shop.

Bad: The music. AWFUL. Every fight is like a beginning to the cheesiest anime ever, and the music is ALWAYS THE SAME! If the fight is not a boss fight, prepare for track 1 on repeat. Also, other music in the story gets so repetative you may as well just mute and play to your own music.
Frozen characters models for intermediate cutscenes? Really? Talk about lame with a capital L. As the characters are frozen in their paralytic state, saying their lines with their minds, a breeze will always be present blowing around Bayonettas hair and costume. Maybe it's a spell to attract Fabio? Or just maybe good ventilation is a must for every area she is in? Who knows.
Naturally, the small errors are present. Hair going through programming when a weapon is on her back, the camera has its fair share of 'WHAT?!?!?!', along with a few other things to not go into detail about.

All in all, this game is a 6 out of 10. Beat it and send it back, unless you want to play a stripper who kills monsters in glittery fashion. And one last question: Why doesn't Bayonetta have back problems walking like that? Sexy walk... AWAY!!!
