I won’t lie to you, when Bayonetta came out, I was not interested in the slightest. It looked shallow and flashy, and seemed to rely too heavily on sex appeal. HOWEVER! When I got my hands on Bayonetta 2, I immediately rebuked myself for my blatant bigotry. Bayonetta is definitely flashy, and definitely sexy. It is absolutely ridiculous. And I love it.
The game plays like a dream. The combos are flashy, deadly, sexy, and hilarious, all at the same time. Bayonetta 2 seems to capture the spirit of the first game (at least so far as I can tell), and if you enjoyed Bayonetta, it looks like you’re going to enjoy Bayonetta 2. And luckily for me, Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 come packaged together. This is definitely something I’ll be picking up this fall.
