The combat in this game is sick a bit sexual but it was fun

Entertaining at best, frustrating at worst

Bayonetta sounded to me like an enjoyable game, it really did, so I rented it. It was fun at the start. Then it just got extremely difficult for no reason at all. Dying is literally murder on your chapter scores and they throw in random cutscene based qtes that can result in an insta-death. Now I understand why dying in combat could negate your score but random insta-deaths? No, you should not effing do that, ever! It's cheap and frustrating and it completely alienates the player from getting any sort of fair score by the end. I wanted to like this title but by chapter five I was too frustrated and decided to send the game back.
Do yourselves a favor gamers, don't buy (don't even rent) this garbage.

Pros
-cute, albeit lazy, story
-Sub par graphics (impressive for such an early title though)
-nice music, kind of...
Cons
-unfair rating system ( unacceptable for a hack-n-slash game!)
-terrible voice acting
-god awful script (almost laughably predictable)
-awful, awful, awful bossfights. Completely riddled with qtes
-cheap excuse for a currency system
-cheap healing system (practically broken even)
