I'm playing it right now, it's actually quite good. As far as games go, it's a cinematic treat to just watch.

That because PlatinumGames developed the XB360 version and SEGA did the dodgy port. Excellent game Devil May Cry with the humor of Godhand.

i was kinda surprised at how much i liked the demo of this. I knew it was gonna be over the top, scantily clad action, but it was pretty damn fun too. yeah it felt just like DMC4, but its a good game to mimic, imo.

I love this game. I've already finished it, so I'm replaying it on Hard.
It's way too short, though. Only sixteen chapters, plus the prologue and epilogue =/

Deviance I hate to say it but your posts while beautiful in gramar are completely ignorant to video gaming culture, genres, and defining what you call a "gimmick".

First let me say that games like Metal Gear and damn near everything you listed aren't even close to the same genre. I'm actually shocked to see some of those games listed. It's like to amalgamized third person and combat into a genre. Bayonetta is an action game like Devil May Cry, Ninja Gaiden, and God of War. At this point those are the only real recent releases you should be comparing it too.

As for gimmick, what gimmick? Combat? Style? By your logic DMC, NG, and Bayonetta all have the same gimmick even though they play completely differently; On that note I'll take to listing their definitive styles.

Ninja Gaiden: Skill based combat that relies on your knowledge of your opponent and skill to land attacks without getting hit. Extremely punishing.

Devil May Cry: Stylish Combos. Your ability to find a weakness and get in and hit with a multi-weapon high damage and juggling combo.

Bayonetta: This is the next evolution of the genre. It takes a middle ground as being punishing in gameplay and ease of death but not taking too much as a penalty when you do die. The combat is about dodging at the last minute and weaving attacks on smarter and fluid enemies. The game is very responsive and has quite a bit going for it.

Bayonetta has exceptional graphics, beautiful animation, and fantastic cutscenes. The boss battles are on a massive scale and unique in approach. It combines and adds upon all of the greatest aspects in the genre. Now while you may dissagree that is your opinion. Regardless of your opinion Bayonetta is an exceptional game in both design and implementation. Just see what reviewers everywhere have to say.

I'd like to mention after playing the game that the characters really do evolve and progress into much more relatable characters. Except Rodin, he's just the resident badass. While I definitely enjoy character designs like Dante this game has its draws as well.

On the note of it being short, I'll agree to some extent. An average playthrough is 12 hours. I ran through in about 10 on my first run as veteran of the genre even with exploring. But this game has a myriad of collectables to keep you playing. Normal, Hard, and the highest difficulty - Non Stop Infinite Climax, all reward you with unique weapons. There are also two unlockable characters for you to play as and they play differently than Bayonetta.

I really enjoyed how between all 10 weapons most could be equipped to your hands or feet or both. And each weapon behaves differently depending on where it is equipped and what is equipped in addition to it. With 10 weapons, 2 slots, and 2 sets, the combinations for combos and styles are nearly endless. And when I say the boss battles and style of this game gets a serious injection of epic in the end I do mean it. This game has the most epic ending to any game I've ever played.

I like it. I think I'm near the end but there's still more stuff I need to get. It's a really great game! There's a lot more to it than the hot title character lets on.

I love this game. I like its style, the gameplay, music everything. It just feels different than the other hack and slash games.
