In this month’s issue of EDGE, the magazine handed out one of the first western verdicts for Bayonetta 2. PlatinumGames’ newest title earned a perfect 10 / 10 mark, making it one of only 17 games to have been awarded with a perfect score.
The wrestler EDGE game Bayonetta 2 a perfect score because he is the R-Rated superstar and Bayonetta 2 is a very R-Rated game, hence the 10/10. Wish it was on Next-Gen consoles & PC as well. More people should get to play it.
The only reason this game exists is because Nintendo funded it. Otherwise it would have been dead. If more people want to play it, then more people need to buy a Wii U. Just like how Nintendo fans need to buy a second system to play a lot of third party games.
VVVVV to all below wii u is a nex gen console .period can i play any of the nex gen games on it like dragon age, far cry , ac, witcher , mgs, the order, mordor ,arkham knight , evolve ect? no. period. then it couldnt matter less what 'gen' it is. "If more people want to play it, then more people need to buy a Wii U. Just like how Nintendo fans need to buy a second system to play a lot of third party games." what a pathetic statement would you stand by it if wii u became the successful console with major 3rd party support and xenoblade 3 was suddenly made xb1 exclusive , which almost dying out of the market ? wii u is a failing console and the reason it doesnt get 3rd party games isnt because sony/ms were insecure and paid for that to happen.its because of nintendo's own doings. i understand nintendo paid for the game , but they could just as easily had them make a new h&s ip but they didnt. they chose to make a sequel to the game that was never on their system only to force ps360 owners to buy a product that is doing miserably on all fronts but 1st party games.its a cheap desperate move .period. theyre getting no one(who hasnt got it for first party games already) to buy a wii u just because it has ONE game ps360 owners would want, at best , itll piss of a few fans and thats it.any sane person working at nintendo would know it too. i know ill be getting a million butthurt disagrees without a single reasonable reply , but thats all you nintendo fans are capable of
@ Vish Quit crying over it, child. You care more about the system than the game itself; take off the console war fatigues, open your wallet, and PROVE you actually give a shit about Bayonetta 2 by buying it on the only console it COULD come to, instead of lying about the definition of a generation by citing what games aren't coming to the system and spending your time blaming fans and Nintendo for getting a game you want on THEIR system instead of yours. Most of the Bayonetta fans out there know why it is on Nintendo's system and are GRATEFUL that Bayonetta 2 was saved from being cancelled entirely. You're a part of a whiny vocal minority that thinks it's the "true fanbase" of the game when you're proving otherwise simply by protesting its existence. Yes, that's exactly what you're doing; protesting its very existence. You'd rather have it not exist at all than become an exclusive, and have ignored the facts: Kamiya has already explained that IT WOULD NOT EXIST IF NOT FOR NINTENDO'S FUNDING BECAUSE NO ONE ELSE FROM ANY OTHER COMPANY WANTED TO FUND IT. You're wishing death on Bayonetta 2 every time you say it shouldn't be on Nintendo's system. That's just plain sad. You don't care much about Bayonetta if your hatred of the console it's on takes precedence. We went multiplat during the PS2 and PS3 gens for the sake of good games, and we didn't regret owning another console aside from our mains. If you're not a console fan-tard, you'll shut the F up and do the same instead of hating left and right whenever this subject comes up.
I love bayo and am glad Nintendo decided to fund it. But it's a shame it's less accessible to everyone. With that said. SO HYPE kfsdlafjsdklfjsdkl.
@Vish You really don't give real reasons to why the Wii U is not next-gen just because you don't like nintendo's doings. They have many games they are bringing to their console to expand their library and there is nothing wrong with that. They aren't making a bayonetta bundle or anything like that. They must have liked the game themselves. Next gen would mean this generation that we are in, does not have anything to do with power or having certain titles. Your jelly
nintendo being in game bussines longer than microsoft and sony..dont look down on them just because somebody think they make kids game beside,it was nintendo who saved bayonetta..other publisher sadly turned it down
but Wii U is a next gen console.
@FasterThanFTL Yes, please tell us how the Wii and Wii U are both part of the last gen. Performance has absolutely nothing to do with generation. It's the successor to the Wii, Nintendo's LAST GEN console, so therefore it is next gen.
Technically, it isn't a next gen system because it's basically on par (technology wise) with last gen systems (X360 and PS3) and in some cases it's actually worse.. :/
Well, technically it's current-gen, like PS4 and XO.
It came out to soon so it's was is own gen for a year and now it's last gen.
Not debatable, it IS a next gen console, whether it ruins your bedtime or not. It's so sad knowing this isn't the only time I've read one of your dumb comments... TOPIC: What's all this fuss about a game getting a 10 from a major reviewer? I've seen rubbish games receiving perfect scores and stellar games under appreciated time and again from every corner of the internet... Besides, Bayonetta was a critically acclaimed game, so the formula was only meant to be improved, no surprise it's gonna turn out to be a pretty good game. @Phantom Disagrees lol, @ the amount of sodium dropped by those reading this article.
Wii U, just like Xbox One and PS4, is current gen. It exists in the eighth generation of consoles thus making it a current gen console. I don't know where this whole thing where next gen refers to graphics came from, but it's wrong. If you think the Wii U is weaker, than just say that. Just know that it obviously has nothing to do with how fun games can be. After all, you seem to like Bayonetta 2, despite it being on "inferior technology"
It is on a next gen console.
Way to go ruining the comments section, and it's not the first time, you always beg for a pc port everytime. Bayonetta 2 is a Wii U exclusive, your whining is irrelevant.
Please explain why you think it isn't on a next gen console? also if you do not consider wii u next gen, please tell me why?
More people WOULD play it, if more people were less a fanboy for their consoles and more a fan of good games. Good games justify getting new consoles, and the Wii U is the cheapest of the bunch. It's straight out Nintendo hatred and a refusal to give anything else in the library a try that prevents more from owning and playing Bayonetta 2. Nothing more and nothing less. Console Wars suck. Side note; generations aren't defined by graphics or power. They're defined by sequence. Wii U is an 8th gen console, right alongside XBone and PS4. Stop spreading misinformation and lies just to suit your agenda.
I sleep happy knowing guys like you genuinely believe Wiiu isn't an 8th gen console and that you lose sleep essentially trying to change a dictionary definition. EDGE gave this game a 10/10 because this WIIU exclusive is a 10/10
This means a lot coming from edge. They are like the last true gamers in media. They love game design and love game art no matter what system it is on. The real reason why it got a perfect is it is AAA and has replay value based on skill rather than grinding like a retard doing mundane task. I mean real what do you do in watch dogs, ass cred, destiny, where is the game? We have people playing super boring games and then attacking nintendo because they are not supporting boring games with the crutch of power. So far 80% of the hyped games suck even with all of that imaginary power. Nintendo is collecting so powerhouse development teams. I'm still waiting for the other next gen systems to even make a good game. They seem like beautiful woman that are old news getting in the way of the telli. Every one knows substance trumps beauty. Which was video games main draw until Hollywoodism set in partly because of sony. No one holds sony to task for not making great game play value in their games. Spare me the superior hardware bull... they are getting killed where hardware performance counts pcs and smart devices. The recent list of over hyped 5 million sellers just goes to show how gullible the ps4 community really is and it's all based on blind hate. Serves them right. When they wake up I hope they get more gems like the wiiu is getting mostly from exclusives. So just like the wii got a bunch of casual gamers the ps4 is getting a bunch of desperate gamers that are acting casual. Maybe it is a good thing cod did not sell on the wiiu. Anyway happy gaming you know bayo2 is going to be fun! Take a break from the war and start enjoying this gen. By the time you look up the ps4 will get a price drop and everything hyped will be bargain binned.
"Wish it was on Next-Gen consoles" Indeed, it would look awesome on Nintendo's next console.
Quote *Wish it was on Next-Gen consoles & PC as well.* Another fanboy who doesn't know what next gen means. Next gen doesn't mean power. WiiU is the next generation of Nintendo Consoles. If you want to play it buy a WiiU. Same goes with every console.
LMAO these haters butts are sore. Look Nintendo is next-gen no matter what anyone says it is staying. Maybe if Wii U wasn't selling then they would have changed up but it is still ahead of mircosoft and the 3ds is doing great as well. Its like me asking put the last of us on wii u please, it will never happen just like I can't play mario kart 8 on ps4 and I like it that way. Bayonetta deserved this score, everything that was wrote out seems to be true. I mean why can't people be honest instead of being jealous! Wii U is next-gen, Wii U is fun and unique. Gamepad is great, they have great exclusives and very challenging games. I use my ps4 to collect all the shooter games I can't get on Wii U
It was wasted on the wii u...
Your comment is a waste of time.
It would've been wasted if Nintendo didn't pick it up when others didn't.
Actually it's the total opposite.
You Nintendo loyalist are living IN ridiculousness.
Go troll elsewhere.
And you Nintendo haters need to go play all the awesome third party games you have instead of trolling on N4G.
Shut up ricohet, I have a ps4 too. You just need to stop being cheap the wii u isn't expensive for a gamer. Obviously your jealous and wish you can play it but be realistic it is great that Wii U has it. ANother reason to get the WIi U
So salty, damn... All this from a niche game!
How much did they get?
Ummmm 10/10! perfect score.
He's alleging that Nintendo payed for a great review! That's both Sony and Microsoft that do stuff like that
Correct me if I'm wrong but i never saw edge explain why they gave games 10 when its on the other consoles. 10 or not I'm buying this game
"Wii U's first true classic." Damn, those are high words. I want to be October 26 for yesterday.
No one here should even BE questioning Edge on this decision. Did someone question it with any other game in the recent past like this, by putting out a whole article about it? If someone has, I sure don't remember it.
I question them, simply because they gave The Wonderful 101 a 6, which is preposterous in my opinion. That said, I'm sure I'll enjoy Bayo 2 a lot, all the same. The first one was a lot of fun. :)
I personally question a lot of perfect score reviews regardless of publication. Very few games that get perfect scores actually deserve them, and that's apparent enough just reading the text that goes along with the number. As far as Bayo2 I haven't gotten it yet, but will pick it up after I get back from vacation and make my own judgement.
We should question every score for every game from every reviewer, especially after the past few weeks.
Genuinely feel like i have lost some braincells and am now stupider for having read the comments section in this thread. Geez the trolls are out in force. This game looks incredible, doesnt matter what console its on, Im going to have loads of fun with it.
Feel bad for close minded people willing to forfeit the best games of the generation simply because of the brand of the console they run on. I don't think most normal people are that immature though. I have 5 coworkers that have bought a Wii U after I showed them all the games that it has. Most people are normal and just want to play fun games. I think the extremists really only show their colors on fan sites. But most normal people, once you show them what the Wii U is and the games that it has, their first response is "I want one".
Wii u is not next gen. Not for hardcore gamers at least. First time with an hdmi? Get out of here. Ps vita is more next gen then wii u because its ps4 little bro lol
Whatever you say Mr. I love PS3
What is a hardcore gamer? Fanboys accuse Nintendo of not supplying the needs of ardcore gamers... but the most casual games are on the PS and Xbox. Fifa and cod.
Apparently a hard core gamer these days is anyone who plays a fps on ps4 or xb1, gone are the days when people played rpg's and other genres of games. The more cut scenes in a game the more hard core it is. Oh and the game cant have to much thinking involved then its a kids game.
The wiiu is actually the only hardcore platform out. It is the only system that requires skill and not just a subscription to play it's games. If you want power then go pc kid. The ps4 and xbone has a bunch of crap coming to it while trying to be Jr pcs. You guys are passive recessive. Worst than casual, if some one has better pr then you will jump ship. Back in the day nerds where way more informed and crushed companies like acclaim while you guys feed mediocrity because of specs and hype. It's like you don't even know what gaming is about. It might as well be comic books or film collection. Pop casual core gamers. Really are messing up gaming. Maybe there will not be a crash maybe sony and ms along with various 3rd parties will just keep milking you guys till you are gone.
I can't say I disagree with your analysis. WiiU is miles ahead of the competition, and it's tragic. Haters gonna hate. The same "underpowered/kiddy/rehas h" claim against Nintendo, is flung by the same hardcore CoD/AC//Destiny crowd. Nevermind that Bayo2 was saved by Nintendo. Gaming has always been political, but good god, what's with the contempt for Nintendo?
"feed[ing] mediocrity because of specs and hype" - State of the gaming industry in a nutshell. That sentence alone deserves an agree.
So happy to see games like Alien Isolation get crap scores. How are your 5/10 games working for you Xbox fanboys now. well done to Platinum and to Nintendo. I can't wait to get this game as I never played the original.
I dont know why you are singling out xbox fans. I guess you dont want to get a lot of disagrees from the mindless swarm.
Most casual gamer is on xbox and ps? The wii is the definition of casual lol. They tried it with the wii u but casual gamers are fine with the wii. They dont need to upgrade to last gen (wii u) nintendo use to be for the hardcore but they suck now. I thought the next generation would compete with M$ and sony but they came out with another casual gimmick but luckily this one failed. Hopefully their next console will be like the old days of 64 and even gamecube. Wii u and wii were a joke
That "joke" has some of the best games of the generation, as did the "joke" before it. Deal with it.
Denial and ignorance is strong with this one... If Wii is for casual's then is PlayStation 2, Wii attracted with motion controls yet PlayStation 2 with DVD player. Watching movies on PlayStation 2 is not Hardcore and most or at least a good chunk of people bought it because it was cheapest DVD player on the market at the time... At least people bought a Wii at launch for actual games and was innovative from motion controls, Wi-Fi and integrated web browser...
Let's not forget that the Ps3 was also the cheapest blu-ray player when the price dropped.
Now, you run along and get into your pajamas..
By "failed" you mean, will still make more money than the Ps3/360 did? ! I've got news for you, it's already more successful because Nintendo makes money off of WiiU, so, there's that.
Incoming PS fanboys with there petitions. LOL at the fanboys and kids who believe the WiiU is on par with 360 and PS3. 500mgs of ram in 360 and PS3 while WiiU has 2gigs? that's a pretty big jump alone plus all the effects that the 360 and PS3 cant do like tessellation and MSAA. Hate on the WiiU all you want, I don't even own a WiiU but I am not stupid enough to say its last gen. Pathetic some of you are. Know what your talking about before claiming what you think. WiiU has games that cant be done on last gen consoles without major sacrifices same goes with XB1 and PS4. Stop giving the gaming community a bad name. Its embarrassing.
because they like BOOBS
Why? Well if #GamerGate has taught us anything, the answer could range from it's actually a great game to SEGA paying them. In any case, I hope it's awesome. Keep fighting the good fight, Nintendo.
I would assume they would have gave a perfect score to more than the 17 games that they have, if they were buy-able.
Lol the greatest console of all time with the best lineup ever was sold because of DVDs? Grow up.
