When you’re in the mood for some hack and slash game, the Bayonetta 2 will not disappoint. Bayonetta 2 is about the titular character, Bayonetta, who kills and eliminates angels and demons through the use of guns and melee attacks.
There is also a unique feature called Witch Time. Whenever you dodge enemy attacks, enemies will then get slowed down and you’ll be given enough time to retaliate. Think of this is some sort of Matrix maneuver.
If you have the knack of torturing your enemies, then Bayonetta 2 does not disappoint. There are special moves called Torture Attacks wherein you use magical traps in order to torture the enemies. It also has a cool animation too!
So, why should you play Bayonetta 2? Bayonetta 2 has received a lot of praises and critical acclaims. In fact, it got a very high rating on GameRankings.com garnering 91.38% and a superb score of 91/100 on Metacritic.
Not only that, but Bayonetta has been featured in a lot of gaming magazines and media outlets as well. Players touted Bayonetta 2 as a major improvement storywise, even though there are no major changes in the combat system.
Still, one cannot argue the fact that Bayonetta 2 is a great game for the Wii U. A lot of people are quite sad and shocked with the news that Bayonetta 2 is a Wii U exclusive. The first installment was originally released for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
As previously mentioned, Bayonetta 2 has got fans and critics raving for the game. Here are some of the critics’ comments I’ve found:
ImpulseGamer: “Bayonetta 2 is perfect on all levels that supports a flawless gaming engine, exceptional graphics and kick-ass female protagonist.”
The Guardian: “The sheer polish applied to every part of Bayonetta 2 is something every major studio should aspire to: the exceptional and wide-ranging soundtrack, the huge number of unlocks, the Nintendo easter eggs, the “making of” materials, and the unlockable characters that bring their own style. Not a single thing has been held back. In this second adventure, Bayonetta over-delivers in every regard, and it will be a long time before another fighting game threatens her crown.”
And here are some of the User reviews:
