"Bayonetta is a great game that all Wii U owners should snap up. The story is immersive, the combat and combo system is fresh and nothing feels more satisfying than destroying demonic angels with your heels and guns." - Nintendo Feed
I honestly didn't see any advertisement for this game
I don't know if it got something in Japan, but here in the west it doesn't launch until late October, so advertisement can wait.
Oh lol I was lost .
I dont understand. Is there no review embargo on the first game but there is of the second.
Different publisher may have something to do with it? Just taking a stab.
It comes in the pack with Bayo 2, so same publisher.
Ooh, I'm with you. I thought this was the bayo 2 review.
Looking forward to this game, but I'm picking it up around Christmas time. I got Advanced Warfare to finish paying off, about 20 left(Digital Pro Edition), I paid off in full Halo:The Master Chief Collection(sadly can't be digitally preordered at lamestop) Smash Wii U I still owe about 68-70 dollars(GC adapter and controller bundle) so this year will be pretty busy. Bayo 2 will have to wait. I just hope the first game being included isn't limited...
I do not understand the disagrees for your comment. It just merely states you have already committed a lot of your money and will have to buy this at a later date. I understand that completely because I am in the same boat with the EXACT same games you have listed except I am buying Hyrule Warriors next Friday when it launches. This is a review of the first game though and not the second so at least it is a solid rating for a game we are getting for free with the second. I like that because I didn't get to play the first one. I have tons of games preordered right now. Until next year I be broke!
I'm pretty sure the Disagrees for his comment are people rushing out to pay off his pre orders so he can get Bayo 2 earlier......N4G community is very generous.......or something like that
I have to say, considering that this is a Nintendo site, I'm worried the game only received an 8. I would have thought, with Bayonetta 1, being as good as it was, that this game would have scored a 10 from Nintendo specific sites & mags. Slightly worried that the game is not going to be as unbelievably good as the 1st. I hope my suspicion in thwarted, as this is the ONLY game I am looking forward to now, on Wii-U, for the rest of the year.
You need to work on your reading comprehension, I think. This is a review of the first game.
They ARE talking about the first here and your making this out to be a horrible score 8 is really good. This is why review scores need to go so people cant complain about a number.
Immersive story??? Ha Ha Ha I loved Bayonetta. It's a very very good action game, but an immersive story? Man, I guess if you're the kind of person that sticks to Nintendo only systems, this is better story than any first party Nintendo game, but immersive? What is this reviewer smoking? It has charm. It's funny and some of the characters have real personality, but immersive??? HA
I liked Bayonetta's story a lot. Writing in video games tends to be pretty bad, so I relish in the more 'light hearted' adventures, that don't take themselves so seriously but provide a narrative that's fun to spectate.
It's not an immersive story by ANY means at all. You know what's an immersive story? Bioshock? You know what's an immersive story? Mass Effect? You know what's immersive? The Last of Us. You know what's the complete opposite of immersive? Bayonetta. It's an amazing game, but calling it an immersive story is like saying the original playstation incarnation of Resident Evil has an immersive story with that cheesy voice acting.
Resident Evil had one of the most immersive stories of the time, it was enough to pique the interest of an entire generation of gamers, despite its cheesy voice acting. The author's opinion differs from yours, deal with it. We can't all have such a clearly superior and sophisticated palate as you, sir.
Bust a cap in yo ass! Yeah the writing in Bayo is terrible and the story is incomprehensible. The only thing of value in the entire game is the combat which might be the best in the genre. Everything else in this game is laughably bad or mediocre.
Pretty sure Zelda stories are top notch. And I know I'm not the only one who thinks that.
Dark is right though about Bayonetta. It featured some of the best hack N slash action on last gen systems. Everything else was poorly conceived. From the hackneyed script featuring the worst token, stereotyped characters to the glaring technical issues exhibited on BOTH consoles (I played the 360 version and could literally induce V-sync problems in any non-combat portion at will), the game was completely overrated by Famitsu despite these failings. The fanboy controversy of course overshadowed this fact. I came here to read up on the WiiU port, hoping that the technical issues were sorted out by now. Fix the V-sync, add some AA, and clean up the variable framerate and I'm a happy camper! Like I said, the action is top notch and trumps the terrible story anyway. What I got was a review 5 years too late to the party.
I think nintendo has some pretty well thought out stories. Mother 3 was one of the best stories ive ever experienced in a game.
What does having to be a fan of Nintendo have to do with a game having a story not. I guess if you try to Diss people who game on Nintendo hardware you look for any opening to be disrespectful.
I pre-ordered from Amazon. They originally listed the standard edition as coming with the first game and later I received an email that they're upgrading my order to the Limited Edition for no extra charge, as an apology. I'm very happy with that!!
It seems Nintendo allowing early reviews unlike Destiny.... are they THAT confident?
Read carefully and read the other comments. This is a review of the FIRST Bayonetta. Not the new one.
This game is 5 years old dude. That's a lot worst than Destiny's 3 week embargo which only happened because the servers were not on.
Not like they could have known there would be a Wii U port years ago and gotten their hands on it to review it... Besides, quit the act. We all know why Destiny's servers were not online. Bungie themselves warned people about early reviews. It's quite clear they were self aware on what reviewers' opinions were gonna be like for their game, and for a good reason. ON TOPIC: I'm quite hyped for this double release. Never got to play the original 'cause I was warned about the PS3 version at the time, here's hoping this version doesn't borrow any of the technical issues of that version!
Nintendo always allows reviews to be released before the release of the game. Not calling out destiny, although u can't tell me that activision couldn't get those servers up early, please that is just naive. Mainly I'm looking at watchdogs. It's clear that when a game is overhyped they hold off reviews until the game is released to ensure those pre orders aren't canceled. Nintendo produces quality titles and it shows in their attitude. 2 weeks to a month before bayo 2 comes out u will see previews and reviews. At the latest a week in advance u will see a review. That's respectable
I thought the server issue IMO was BS. People also have to realize that this game is not developed in-house by Nintendo and they can only do so much to help it. but don't look at the game as it's on a Nintendo system it has to be good. look at it as this is a game that should be good that way your not passing judgment.
Nintendo has two TV ads for Bayonetta 2 in Japan. http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
