Did You Know?


The main character Bayonetta was actually modeled after the J-pop singer Angela Aki. However, many players throughout the world outside Japan often speculates that she was modeled after former Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin due to the fact that she wears the same type of Japanese eyeglasses that Bayonetta wears.

Bayonetta is one cool video game character!
24 November 2010 | by See all my reviews

This game was made by the same group that came up with the Devil May Cry series. Of those games I have played through the first one and played the second one a bit. This game though was better than those two games to me mainly due to the fact Bayonetta is a lot easier to control and it is very easy to perform really cool attacks. That is always a plus to me as I hate having to push some off the wall combination just to see the game character do something neat. The story was also better than the first Devil May Cry game. I only give this one a nine instead of a ten because they still have that annoying trophy thing at the end of each level making you feel bad when you do not get a high score, that and the boss battles sometimes were a bit of a pain as at points I was wondering what I was supposed to be attacking. Overall, the game is great though as Bayonetta is trying to solve the mysteries of her past that she as long forgotten. She goes to this country where the Lumen Sages and Umbra Witches once lived. She is a Umbra witch and she is quite powerful, her main enemies are angels though there is also a strange woman named Jeanne that pops up from time to time and seemingly has ties to Bayonetta. Throw in a reporter named Luka whom has been tracking Bayonetta because of an incident that occurred where it appeared that his father was killed by Bayonetta. She has to fight her way through hordes of angels with weapons she gets from a barkeep in a bar called Hell's Gate, she uses guns, swords and a variety of other weapons that she can pick up from the fallen angels and use to her advantage. The combat as I have said is easy and fun, it is quite something to watch this cute game character do a pole dance while dispatching enemies. You have a few stages where you do different things as well as there is a motorcycle level and a level where you are flying on a missile. All in all a very fun game and I certainly would not mind playing another game featuring this character though the ending was nice and complete so that if there is not one I can live replaying this fun action game.
