Still one of the most garbage games to ever exist
2 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

I played it when it originally came out and I just loathed it then. In fact, Microsoft just gave it away for FREE with XBL Gold. So I opted to try it again and see if my memories of it were maybe just too harsh.

Nope. Truthfully, I had given it a 3 all those years ago. I lowered it to a 2 because this crap game was even worse than I remembered.

It still seems like 70% of the game is corny cut-scenes with hyper-proportioned and degrading characterizations of females. Bayonetta herself is an overly-sexualized nun or witch or lady-of-the-evening or who-knows-what. But it is just an unflattering, anti-social and puerile depiction of a distaff protagonist. I can't say how much I detest the very core heroine of this festering trainwreck. Modern attitudes on gender make her portrayal and appearance even more deplorable because of her purely objectified nature.

The gameplay is atrocious. The button-mashing has never registered correctly. It is entirely broken or overly precise. Either way, the combat is dreadful and boring because it just seems like randomness whenever you manage to lands hits, even with the lock-on activated. And there's so so much of the same fights. It never varies.

Bad conception. Bad execution. Bad game.
