Bayonetta is absurd. It's stupid. It's crazy nonsense. It's also absolute genius, immensely fun and contains incredible depths. Coming out of the Devil May Cry school of over-the-top action titles, where the protagonist spends as much time posing and fighting and often does both at the same time, Bayonatta surpasses even the most stylish of them.
From the director of the original Devil May Cry and some of the other most striking games ever released, such as Okami and Viewtiful Joe, you'd be right to have fairly high expectations of Bayonetta. Every one of them will be fulfilled, and more besides.
