Excellent

Huge Scale Action Packed Adventure

Don't let the first few minutes confuse(or bore) you, there are plenty of "OH MY GOD" moments to be experienced. This game takes scale and space to a massive scale. The creative combat system will make you not want to put down the controller, and with so many (easy) combos, it never gets stale. Give it a try!

All Spectacle, No Substance

Cons:
No camera control
Character can be difficult to see amidst the effects/scenery
Combat is repetitive button-mashing
Story is incomprehensible
Everything has a loading screen, including the Pause menu
Enemies are carbon-copies of each other

Pros:
Levels are well-designed
Graphics are very good
Boss fights are entertaining

The only reason I could recommend Bayonetta is the spectacle of it. If you want to disarm a 50'-tall angel, then use his battle axe like a stripper pole as you twirl around shooting giant pistols from your ankles until your hair/clothes turn into a demon portal, which eats the angel then explodes in a spray of fireworks and butterflies, then this game is for you.

Awesome Game But Better On The 360

This game is sure to enthuse fans of the Devil May Cry series and series like it. Unfortunately, the PS3 version suffers from constant load times that are truly terrible. That might seem like an exaggeration, but it's not. If you don't own an Xbox 360 this game is still a really solid title, just be forewarned about the load times.
