Bayonetta is a stylish and cinematic action game directed by creator Hideki Kamiya. A member of an ancient witch clan and possessing powers beyond the comprehension of mere mortals, Bayonetta faces-off against countless ethereal enemies, many reaching epic proportions, in a game of 100% pure, unadulterated all-out action. Outlandish finishing moves are performed with balletic grace as Bayonetta flows from one fight to another. With over-the-top action taking place in stages that are a veritable theme park of exciting attractions, Bayonetta pushes the limits of the action genre, bringing to life its fast-paced, dynamic climax combat.

A beautiful and graceful fighting game that lets imagination loose, and winks before slapping Dante, Kratos and every other hero back to the drawing board. [Christmas 2009, p.90]100Edge Magazine
The best beat ’em up we’ve played since God Hand, a game that not only lives to its hype, but surpasses it.100Eurogamer Spain
Bayonetta is an action masterpiece. All you action fans out there should run out and buy it, and just about everyone should give it a try on Very Easy mode at the very least.100Gamer Limit
Bayonetta is undoubtedly a masterpiece and the best action game in recent years.100Eurogamer Portugal
Bayonetta is a stunning orgy of sadistic mayhem that surpassed even my unreasonably high expectations, and proved that violence can be beautiful.100GameShark
Non-stop climax action.100Gameplayer Sweden
It’s such a fantastic game to start off the New Year with, and while I haven’t been fully in love with Platinum Games previous efforts, they really knocked this one out of the park for me.100Gaming Age
The 360 version is vastly superior to the PS3 version on a technical level, so PS3 owners fortunate enough to own a 360 should absolutely avoid the PS3 copy.95IGN
The game is far from perfect, but its few faults are buried deeply under a game that shines brightly with its strengths.95Kombo
The first truly “next generation” action game and the standard everyone else has to follow. [Christmas 2009, p.70]93Games Master UK

Solid hack and slash that goes over the top in the characters, tone, and combat. The story is all over the place, but it fits with the world. This game takes a lot of risks and a lot of them pay off.70Dartza
I preferred it to 2 as it has a bit more story going for it, but honestly it still doesn’t really do it for me. Platinum games are too formulaic for me, with the exception of Wonderful 10170B00tador
Gameplay entretenido, quitando el prejuicio de la sexualidad: llega a ser un juego con una gran variedad de combos y enemigos70soldar
Played on XBOX 360. Gameplay: GREAT. Story: GOOD. Graphic: GREAT. Music/Sound: GOOD. Dialogue/Voice Acting: GOOD.70iKen
Worst game I have played in my life. Its like DmC with a lot of bronze powder. The story is a bad joke, making have hard to stay playing this game after some hours.0voiders
