It may have some load time issues

So what if the load times for the PS3 version are long granted the books you collect may be a little bit of a pain but honestly the gameplay is still very well done granted they may be a little clunky at times but this is a very fun ride if you dont own a 360 it's still a very good game if you can look past the loading times, which DO NOT affect the gameplay very much.

Bayonetta Review

Great game, well deserving of a 9.0. Many flaws technicaly but cleaner than expected. Over the top action alonf lines odf Devil May Cry series in gameplay upgading ect. Im going to rent the 360 version to see if there is a 1.0 difference as some site claim. Who ever cleaned bayonneta up on the PS3 version did a half decent job with the time frame. Bayonetta is a must play for any true gamer.

This game is pure bliss! It handles beautifully, the control system is very intuitive, and the game is gorgeous! But the PS3 version does have its flaws like screen tearing and the worst one, loading. All games are required to load at some point, but the PS3 version loads at every chance it gets. Start the game up...loading. Pick up an item from the ground in the game...loading. Hit the freakin start button...loading. And it wouldn't be so bad if the load times were like a second, but out of ten tries, it took the game 7 seconds to finish loading after I hit the pause button. Platinum Games really dropped the ball with the PS3 version, but even though all the loading can be a little irritating, that doesn't take away from the sheer fun of this game. Tons of collectables for those that like to find everything in a game, some of the cutscenes are funny if you like the type of humor that makes fun of itself, and the action is amazing! Even with the horrible load times, I'm on my second playthrough and currently debating whether I want to go ahead and buy this game or not because I'm having such fun with it. It is definitely a little rough to play, but if you are a patient person and the PS3 version is the only copy you can get your hands on, it's definitely worth it...but if you have an X360, pick up that version...NOW!
