BNG's James Pikover writes, "If you change the W to a B for the word "Witch", you will find this review more comical, and entirely true.
So take this witch Bayonetta. She's got guns for heels, a faux British accent, she's voluptuous (and titular, according to every journalist who's seen her. WE GOT THE PUN IN 08!), and her hair plays the role of clothes and ultimate weapon. Besides the complete seductive nature of this playful and fairly tall witch, what's to like? Fast paced Japanese-style hack and slash gameplay."
