GAME Bayonetta               

 

Overall Appeal

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -It is very easy to tell that this game has some roots in the Devil May Cry series; the gameplay is similar yet different to it

     -Action game fans will really like this game do to it’s many highlights and few low points

     -My personal favourites are the Witch Time (slows time down) and the Torture Attacks (call on med-evil weapons to smite your enemies)

          -If you are looking for a slick, stylish action game, then this is for you

 

 

Fun Factor

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -This game is really fun to play, and watch someone else play

 

 

Replay Value

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -This a about a 20 hour game to play, and I would say it is worth playing though again a second time, but with out the extra games modes and no real online not everyone would agree   

 

 

Presentation/Graphics

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -This game looks and feels just so amazing

     -The uniqueness of the attacks and special moves, the villains and Bayonetta herself is just unreal 

 

 

Online

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Just leaderboards     

 

Storyline

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -A very compelling story, with lots of depth and it is very unique

                       

 

Character

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Bayonetta is AWESOME. Tough, stylish, and dangerous

     -Some of the minor and supporting characters are not so great, but this game is not about them                              

 

Customizable

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -There are some abilities and weapons to customize, but that is about it  

 

 

Camera

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -360 degree controls, which is great most of the time

     -During the Witch Walk you are running up and down walls, although very, very cool, that camera is a little tough to manoeuvre  

 

 

Controls

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -The controls are unique but practical. You have some very different fighting abilities and the controls really make them work

     -At some points I could not believe it was me doing all the cool stuff, but it was so easy and natural, I was better then I thought, which is hard! 

 

 

Game Mode

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -You are limited to the story mode, but it is so enjoyable it doesn’t feel like a rip off                  

    

Gameplay Options

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -The is a very linear game, and you can sometimes predict the upcoming cut scenes and monsters

     -But you have a lot of choice of upgrades and weapons to use when the big bad monsters drop them  

 

 

Progression of Difficulty

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7    8   9   10

     -The game has the standard difficulty settings and it can get quite challenging

     -But if you keep playing you will get better fast and trust me the better you get the better you look

 

Minor Details

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -The load times on the PS3 is slow, you will probably prefer it on eth Xbox 360 

 

 

Sound/Soundtrack

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -The soundtrack is a bit bizarre, but somehow fitting

     -The voice acting is lame, one of the few flaws
