Hooked Gamers writes:'With Devil May Cry's creator Hideki Kamiya directing this game it would be fair to say that Bayonetta could be Dante's ideal date, as comparisons between the two are obvious. Bayonetta might just prove to be a little bit more, well… mental. And we like it.
You play as the Witch Bayonetta, who is the sassy, innuendo sprouting, dominatrix look-alike of Sarah Palin. She is in the middle of a war against the forces of heaven and its angels, so your support comes in the form of the dark forces. Why all the commotion? Bayonetta doesn't even know as she is suffering from a bout of amnesia. Not the most original idea in the world, but hey, this one isn't going to be one of those games we remember for the stunning story, is it?"
