"Bayonetta's action unfolds in a very tongue-in-cheek way, with the title character blowing kisses at the screen and cheesy music playing in the background. The game definitely has a sense of humor about itself, but still manages to pack in a substantial amount of style.
The gameplay is noticeably similar to the Devil May Cry franchise, as Bayonetta combines a substantial amount of gunplay and melee combat, and some pretty awesome combos. Bayonetta can perform punches and kicks, as well as shoot her guns (which can be in her hands as well as attached to her feet), and perform air juggles. Dodging from enemy attacks is done by pressing the right trigger before an enemy attacks. Do this at just the right moment to activate Witch Time, which allows you to perform stronger attacks and slows down your foes to a crawl while you wail on them. "
