If over the top, anarchic action is your cup of tea then Bayonetta is one rollercoaster of a game that you will certainly want to hop onto.
After a 500 year sleep, Bayonetta awakens with no memory and no clue as to where she is. It is only when she reaches the fictional european city of Vigrid that she is able to grasp some of the hazy pieces of her past and paste them together. Bayonetta is very strange leading lady, a witch with magical hair which usually serves as her clothing but can transform in the blink of the eye into such things as a giant ass-kicking boot. Of course.
Bayonetta is a game filled with spectacle and awe-inducing moments. As soon as the game begins you are launched into an epic battle and the action rarely lets up throughout the 12 hours or so that it takes to slash through the campaign. Luckily the combat system is top notch with a vast selection of fluid and satisfying moves than somehow feel both intuitive and challenging to pull off. In a game full of humour, whimsy and delights a-plenty, not to mention style and thrills, it is perhaps this excellent combat engine that impresses the most and ensures that the game is hugely enjoyable throughout.
There's really very little to complain about here and it is such a joy to play from beginning to end that it is very hard not to recommend Bayonetta.
