Bayonetta in 100 Words or Less

By Kirk Hamilton

Video-Gamey Awesomeness distilled to borderline-illegal levels. A leading lady that's one part Dante, one part Ryu, one part Buffy, and one part glam dominatrix; all parts awesome. Button-mashing worked for three levels, then I had to actually learn how to play, and that's when things took off. The combat has a crazy amount of depth, incredible style, and pits you against the most imaginative beasties and the most mind-bending environments I've seen in years, possibly ever.

Simply put, Bayonetta is more fun than a barrel full of Kratoses. (Which wouldn't actually be all that "fun," more like "scary.")

You'll laugh, cry, beg, etc.
