Bayonetta Preview: "One of the most visually impressive games of the last five years"

61FPS Writes: "Games are more than their graphics, I know, but it's impossible to discuss Bayonetta without mentioning its presentation first. Without question, it is one of the most visually impressive games of the last five years. The game periodically goes into brief, playable flashbacks showcasing a war that left the titular character comatose for decades. One of these sequences is frames around a boss fight against a towering, obese dragon with two heads and a human face protruding from its swollen belly. The scene is a riot of color. Every inch of the crumbling environment is a meticulously detailed and animated. Even though the game's months away from its fall 2009 release, Platinum Games' new engine runs all the action without a hitch and the camera, a notorious trouble-maker in 3D action games like Devil May Cry and Ninja Gaiden, follows the action without obscuring it."

So of course it will be Awesome.

None of their games was less than AAA (When they were CLOVER/Capcom Studio 4)

These are THE brains that redefined the action gaming genre with DMC1.. I simply cannot wait to see what they can cook up with current-gen hardware. I'll definitely bee keeping this one close in my radar this year.. not ALL great games have a calling card of the Killzone 2 or FFXIII (*ahem*) likes.

Danja3553d ago

yup being looking forward to this game ever since I saw the trailer on the PSN.....

im def keeping an eye on this game.....

I was at best skeptical about this after it appeared to me as DMC4 which was incredibly average imo. I'm now however convinced that it will at least be a good game, if not great or spectacular. Hype engine, ON.

There's a difference there raptor jesus. Bayonetta looks like how DMC4 was SUPPOSED to be. More over the top, more wild combo's, bigger boss fights and oozing a whole lot more style. DMC4 WAS pretty tame and mediocre. Specially since, you know it basically was a carbon copy of DMC3 but with the graphics prettied up. Now i love DMC3 but the same game over with just a few tweaks is very lame.

On the other hand i can't wait for Bayonetta to drop. This, Brutal Legend and GoW3 possibly coming out this year makes me a VERY happy gamer.

thts a big statement...

Nobody does visually impressive crotch shots like PlatinumGames. Kudos to the camel toe clan of developers that have made this game look so friggin' impressive.

ThanatosDMC3553d ago

Odd numbered DMC games, FTW!

DMC1, 3, and 5!

DMC2 = boo , DMC4 = Nero = pansy

This game will rock.Platinum Games will deliver.

GWAVE3553d ago

I agree that it looks good visually, but it doesn't look THAT good. I mean, does it look good compared to the likes of Killzone 2 or Alan Wake? I don't think so.

Rikitatsu3553d ago

But this is a snapshot from the PSN Trailer.

Traveler3553d ago

I agree. It looks good, but not THAT good.

Giriath3553d ago (Edited 3553d ago )

Keep in mind that little has been shown and that it's still roughly a year from release. Killzone 2 showed us how much and how fast a game can improve. I don't think it will be the best looking console game this year, though. I believe that multiplatform games will never look better than exclusives with a similar budget and development time, even including FF XIII.
