With a flutter of her eyelashes and her wings, Bayonetta’s flirtatious appeal is infectious. Twinned with addictive gameplay and cheeky witticisms, Bayonetta 2 will leave you gasping for more. It may take two to tango, but it only takes one to Umbran Climax.
The weapon variation and the movesets available are simply a joy to discover in Bayonetta 2. Each weapon is meticulously designed with individual combo attacks, so pairing different weapons together such as Undine on the arms and Rakshasha on the legs can make for a devastating string of attacks. But learning what works the best and what may be able to award you with the best combo score and that elusive – though not impossible – pure platinum medal at the battle’s end is what keeps the game fresh and the player hungry for more.
From the developer who brought the original Bayonetta and The Wonderful 101 to Nintendo home consoles, Platinum Games has designed a true marvel of a game with the hack-and-slash sequel. While Bayonetta 2 may not revitalise the franchise’s core gameplay mechanics, Platinum chooses to refine them with a delicate touch. This isn’t a simple button bashing game, and it never encourages players to do so. Rather practice mode is displayed during loading screens to guide players to combo attack success. It’s by digging a little deeper, learning when to dodge to initiate Witch Time, or when to hold back to find enemy weaknesses to string combos together, that the game begins to knit impeccably. The initial sluggish, heavy-handed attacks from the start will eventually transform into smooth fluidity between movesets and taunting enemies. And as it becomes second nature, Bayonetta 2 evolves from its cocoon.
As stylish, sultry and oozing with confidence as before, Bayonetta returns to her Umbran Witch roots exclusively on the Wii U. And with a varied choice of weapons, individual combo sets and heart-thumping boss battles, Bayonetta 2 plays just as beautifully as it looks.
Costumes in Bayonetta 2 cost a pretty penny but allow players to customize the titular protagonist in a variety of silly ways. Want to play the entire game in a Samus costume? That's absolutely possible.
First players must purchase Mirrors in Rodin's shop, which cost 100,000 Halos. That only unlocks the ability to purchase certain costumes, which also cost 100,000 Halos. So don't go on a shopping spree if you eventually want to unlock costumes.
