Armed with her four enchanted guns known as Scarborough Fair, she battles both monstrous behemoths and angelic enemies. By combining special magic attacks, summoning primal forces and unleashing devastating weaponry, she impressively punishes anyone who gets in her way. From its fluid and intuitive combat system to its gripping story line, Bayonetta is one action thriller that won't disappoint.

Upon first looking at Bayonetta, there's one thing that comes to mind.  The first is that it seems like a Devil May Cry ripoff with some effects of God of War thrown in there for good measure.  And that's probably true (the main man behind the game was also the main man behind Devil May Cry).  In terms of style and gameplay Bayonetta borrows heavily from those two games in particular.  On the other hand, it's good enough that it can stand apart from those games as well.  …

Bayonetta Review: A Hair Raising Experience

I'm a moderate gamer; the new controls are generally more complicated than I'm willing to commit to. He is a hard core gamer. Some games are easier to watch than others, and some are easier to play. This review is not for the hard core gamer. This review is for the girlfriend (or boyfriend, who am I to judge?) that sits on the couch and watches.    Before Bayonetta …
