Game Information

Available on:Wii UOct 24, 2014

Developer: Bee Tribe

Publisher: Nintendo

Genre: Action

Bayonetta is a cinematic and stylish action game from the creative mind of Hideki Kamiya. As a gun-wielding witch with powers beyond the comprehension of mere mortals, Bayonetta faces-off against countless enemies in a game of 100% pure all-out action. Outlandish finishing moves are performed with acrobatic grace as Bayonetta flows from one fight to another. Bayonetta pushes the limits of the action genre with magnificent over-the-top action and fast-paced, dynamic climax combat.

A great port of what is still one of the best action games around. Bayonetta is the essential hack-'n-slash.

Still one of the best third person actioners of all-time, and although the Wii U version changes very little the classic gameplay still shines through.

8 / 10.0

The core of Bayonetta remains as solid and frustrating as it was when it first released. It lacks the polish, semi-coherent story, and rich color palette of its superior sequel, sure, but it's so masterfully designed and brazen in its direction that it's still a must play for every action game fanatic. While the Switch port may lack the exhaustive resolution and graphics options of the PC version, it's an absolute knock-out as a portable action game and further proof there seems to be very little the Switch is incapable of doing.

Eight years after its original release, Bayonetta has still great controls and combo system, and we love the references to classic Sega games such as Space Harrier or Hang On. Soundtrack is also great, but visuals are a bit outdated and the camera system fails sometimes.
