WC: You’d be perfectly correct to label Bayonetta’s gratuitous candy shots obvious bait for the male gaming demographic. You’d also be well within your rights to criticize her ludicrously sexy design—she does, after all, closely resemble a snake that ate two softballs, a watermelon, and stilts.

Enjoyed the game. Eye candy aside my wife enjoyed the game to. I know some will disagree and that's fine. But in my opinion regardless of what system it could have been on. It's a enjoyable game.

Please, no more of this "one way per page" thing. It's such a pain to deal with.

OT: Bayonetta is a fine series and the criticisms are from people who find sexuality in general to be a bad thing. It's pathetic and incredibly narrow-minded. There's no one right way to make a good video game heroine, but I will not deny for a second that Bayonetta is a fantastic one.
