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
Your comment deserves a 10/10. Alternatively, it gets a 7/10 from Polygon.
polygon is just....dont even get me started.
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!
It would get a 7/10 from polygon for triggering them
"Bayonetta 2 Has Reminded Us That Ultimately Games Are About Having Fun" really... and i thought it was all about resolution, I most be living under a rock
@mikeslemonade: 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 ...co-publishing from Nintendo all these BS to support the exclusivity will vanish in a day
Is Sony going to fund the development of the port? they had their chance, so stop your whining.
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.
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.
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"?
@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
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
to me games like okami is the reason why i love games. nothing against bayoneta.
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.
i dont have too much fun with hack n slash games. especially with ones with no story to them.
bayo 2 mechanics is complex and awesome, it's old school man
Gotta love myself when I can't express what I think properly.
That's a pretty moot point, anything is 'fun' provided it appeals to you.
Many genres appeal to me, few hit the mark like this game.
I bought the first one for 360 and then bought it for Ps3 knowing that the Ps3 got a bad port, that's how much I liked it. Hideo Kojima teamed up with these guys when his first version of MGRevengeance got too complicated to complete. They have hack n slash experience at Platinum that goes way back to the classics. Only the ignorant could be shocked.
WiiU is starting to put together 1 hell of a library. Might have to buy one.
The WiiU became my default console. I had no idea that would've happen. It displaced my PlayStation completely. The only question you'll be asking is why didn't you buy one sooner. Maybe they'll have good bundles during the holiday season too!
Honestly, after looking at some of the contents in other articles for Bayo, it also reminds me of how petty and childish people can be over the release of a great game simply because of the kind of game it is and the system that it's available on. I've seen everything from "WiiU is a child's console" to "sales will be low, don't bother" to "Should be on PS4, XOne. No sale" and more. I'm excited for the game, it's just to bad a game with so many great scores and fans gets buried under resolution news for Far Cry and people that hate games just because our their platform.
WiiU is a good console. Bayonetta 2 is a good game. Debate over.
**slams the gavel down**
Soon video games will have no fun allowed.
If you had to be reminded that gaming is about fun, then whoever you are, you need to stop playing video games
nintendo exclusives have been outscoring all the new "next" gen releases... other than the last of us remastered... but just saying...
The Last of US is a last gen game it dont count
Maybe because wii u is next gen.....
I love seeing people negative comments..."Oh, I don't like hack'n'slash, especially ones with no story". THEN WHY GATECRASH THE PARTY. You can't be too impartial to the genre, if you come running in here to vent your disdain...Seems like your envious & can't/don't want to buy a Wii-U. What makes me laugh even harder is this overused "STORY" in games BS.... Come on, who are people kidding... I don't buy a FPS, fighter, hack'n'slash, etc, etc, for the fricken story... Buy a point & click game if you want enthralling storylines, or read a Charles Dickens novel for christs sake. I play these genre of games for fun....They can have THE BEST story since Pulp Fiction, but if the gameplay & frame rate & other factors suck, then it's a sh1thouse game, with a wasted story. The problem could arise with "STORY" driven games, that we get these BORING, ARTSY FARTSY, GAY COWBOY themed games, that make us shriek at the fact we are sitting around, watching a boring ass movie on our console, waiting, waiting, waiting, with baited breath for some damn interactivity & action. I don't want that sh1t.. Just look at David Cage's last effort & snoozefest, & think that it will only get WORSE from there...because it will.. You don't have to be some overated internet analyst to predict that. @thepatientgamer.... Yes, they have, BUT, some have been GROSSLY overscored & given some kind of free reign, IMHO, & I say that as a Wii-U owner. I mean, Mario World 3D is one that I thought got MASSIVELY overscored & hyped.. The only 2 worthy of there scores is MarioKart 8 (& I'm Being very kind there, as I have a soft spot for MarioKart), & this, Bayonetta 2... I don't know how, or why Nintendo get a free pass with SOME of there Mario titles, but, they do, as I have not enjoyed ANY Mario game, as much as Mario64, as they seem to get worse, with every new iteration. MarioWorld 3D, for instance, is not even a proper 3D game, it feels & looks more like Crash Bandicoots retarded cousin.
I really really did not like mario64. I like the newer 3d mario way better because they are closer to my gold standard mario 2 and mario3. Galaxy really was closer to mario64. Yet i won't dispute the scores for these games because they have excellent game design. Bayo2 for example is very similar to dmc... I didn't really like the story I liked the game play. Actually if I could skip story all together I would.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, inFamous:SS, TLOU:R, and a ton of other games have reminded me that playing games are for having fun. I don't care much for resolution or framerate. Hell my TV only goes 720p anyway and I can't really tell much difference between 30fps and 60fps.
How many 60fps games have you actually played?
I honestly never paid much attention to it before the PS4 and X1 came out. But COD4 to Ghosts, Mortal Kombat are the only games that I played and I remember reading they ran at 60fps. This gen TLOU:R, a little bit of Titanfall.
Nintendo exclusives always remind us of this.
