A theme has persisted since the review release of God of War III, and now that the retail release date is upon us these flames are sure to get stoked again. Bayonetta vs. God of War III is a common argument with fans of the action genre. Sure there are some comparisons to be made, like, their in the same genre and they came out relatively close to each other for example. Though that's about as far as you are gonna be able to take that argument, as outside of being in the same genre, Bayonetta and God of War are as different as night and day. The critics agree God of War III is a masterpeice, a 93 on metacritic currently, no small feat. Personally after playing Bayonetta through a few times I had declared it my favorite game of the genre, of all time, for it's sheer fun,originality, and overall presentation. Though it's funny how things change, opinions on what's good and what's the best in your minds eye. Developers chasing new technical heights can do that sort of thing.
