Bayonetta 2 Has Reminded Us That Ultimately Games Are About Having Fun

CraveOnline: "It’s scored so well that quite a few gamers have vocalized how surprised they have been with its reception, presumably because they expected less from it. Frankly, I’m surprised that they’re surprised."

"Bayonetta 2 Has Reminded Us That Ultimately Games Are About Having Fun"

Absolutely not. Games are about resolution and fps. 1080p/60fps FTW. /s

JonnyBigBoss1879d ago

Your comment deserves a 10/10. Alternatively, it gets a 7/10 from Polygon.

aviator1891879d ago (Edited 1879d ago )

polygon is just....dont even get me started.

mikeslemonade1879d ago

It's not "haha fun". I just really appreciate the battle system and the enemy AI. The interesting level design and boss battles too.

However the reviews are graded on a WiiU scale. If the game at its current state came out on current gen hardware it would not get as high scores. There's higher standards and expectations on current gen hardware. Last gen hardware like the WiiU is in comparison to the PS3 and 360.

7/10 from Polygon because it shows too much cleavage, spread legs & butt cheeks... Literally haha.

"Alternatively, it gets a 7/10 from Polygon."

Wow, that's like a 20/10 for them!

TheWackyMan1879d ago

It would get a 7/10 from polygon for triggering them

really... and i thought it was all about resolution, I most be living under a rock

Chrischi19881878d ago (Edited 1878d ago )


yeah, this is why Destiny for PS360 got better review scores than on PS4/X1... not!

It is funny how you fanboys really always try to make something bad out of something so good. Lets just wait, until the PS4 or X1 get a game with these review scores, then we will talk.

Do you really think we dont know, what really drives you to this bs? You just cannot believe, that all "next gen games" got worse reviewed, than Bayonetta2, a game for the lowly underpowered system, it just cannot be, right? Well, we always said gameplay>graphics!

bayonetta confirmed at 720p.....cancelation of the probable cancelled preodrer

in all seriousness, i think people fight over res and stuff because of boredom

Bayonetta 2 completely wasted on Wii U ...but fortunately poor sales will probably lead Platinum to port it for PS4 from Nintendo all these BS to support the exclusivity will vanish in a day

Neonridr1878d ago

Is Sony going to fund the development of the port?

they had their chance, so stop your whining.

iplay1up21878d ago

Nintendo bought the rights and funded Bayonetta 2, it will not be going anywhere other than Wii U. It certainly is not waisted on Wii U. As I get ready to replay the demo and buy Bayonetta 1&2 next week.

Chrischi19881878d ago (Edited 1878d ago )

And it is not wasted. Just because you dont like the Wii U. This is how it goes. You want the next Tomb Raider? Get a X1 or cry. You want Bayo2? Get a Wii U or cry. If it all went to PS4, then it would be ok, if nobody else got it. Such a hypocrite. Pretty egotist and fanboyish at the same time, way to go :)

This again just shows, that you guys are the worst fanboys, really. You cant be happy for a plattform to get a good game. No, you will go as far as to say, that it doesnt deserve the scores, even though it is from well established, not nintendo liking, gaming sites. Just deal with it ok, it is about gameplay. All your beloved next gen games, got worse reviewed, so much to all that hype shit.

frezhblunts1878d ago

Yeah some of those gamers man all they care about is the graphics. Glad this is for wii u and lets keep it that way. I am surprised how jealous people get you don't see me complaining about not having the last of us on wii u [i do have it on ps4]. I brought wii u since nintendo has their own unique games

Did anyone really think Bayonetta 2 would score poorly? Reviewers loved the first game. Most people seemed to enjoy it, in general. It's a great game.

I think there are several titles that are incredibly fun AND look insane, but why focus on those when you can write articles about "the underdog"?

Ka7be1879d ago (Edited 1879d ago )

@article "It’s scored so well bla bla bla" again with the stupid useless scores.

Who cares about "review scores"
If your a gamer you would buy this without any reviews or metascore crap...

Because the creators of this game are:
Yusuke Hashimoto and Atsushi Inaba: Worked on Devil May Cry, Ōkami, Vanquish, God Hand, Viewtiful Joe and Resident Evil 1,2,3,4 and zero.

Hideki Kamiya: Writer: Resident Evil 1 and 2, Devil May Cry and Viewtiful Joe 2.

These names alone makes Bayonetta 2 a most buy! People give to much credit and hits to "professional gaming" reviewers. lol

ape0071879d ago (Edited 1879d ago )

the first game was amazing, this looks better in every single aspect, cannot wait, this game, DK TF, MK8 and titanfall = Love

also WD and Infamous

i also got Evil Within on ps4, old school, the japanese vibe is back, ,don't get me wrong, i like western stuff a little but more than japanese stuff but without some nippon in the mix, gaming seem dead and vice versa

im getting dat ps2/GC/Xbox feel all over again

Kane221879d ago

to me games like okami is the reason why i love games. nothing against bayoneta.

Metallox1879d ago

Context, sir. Bayonetta 2 is launching in a period where games with over complex mechanics are dominating the scene. Bayonetta 2 demonstrates that you don't need too much in order to create a fun game.

Kane221879d ago

i dont have too much fun with hack n slash games. especially with ones with no story to them.

ape0071879d ago (Edited 1879d ago )

bayo 2 mechanics is complex and awesome, it's old school man

Metallox1879d ago

Gotta love myself when I can't express what I think properly.

plmkoh1879d ago

That's a pretty moot point, anything is 'fun' provided it appeals to you.

saviin1878d ago

Many genres appeal to me, few hit the mark like this game.
