Bayonetta throws you straight into its strange and spectacular world and the anarchic action barely lets you pause for breath throughout the 12ish hour long adventure. It's a fantastic thrill ride that is definitely worth taking.

Set in the fictional European city of Vigrid, Bayonetta tells the tale of the titular witch (a bizarre leading lady with magical hair which can transform into anything from a massive ass-whupping boot to her frequently vanishing clothing) who has awoken after a 500 year sleep to find she has no memories and no idea where she is. It is only when she reaches Vigrid that she begins to piece together the hazy pieces of her past and the narrative starts
The game throws you right into battle, with a manic flight through the sky atop a tumbling, crumbling clock tower, swarming with enemies. The combat system is truly excellent with fluid and satisfying moves that feel both intuitive and a challenge to pull off. In a game full of style, spectacle and thrill, it is perhaps this fantastic combat engine that impresses the most and makes the game so very enjoyable.
The entire game is filled with awe-inspiring moments and magic as well as plenty of humour and whimsy. There is so much to recommend Bayonetta and it is a complete joy to play, from start to finish.
