Bayonetta – Demo Impressions (PS3)

Bayonetta is a bit of a weird one. I was never a fan of the Devil May Cry games, although the first was a good game, and this looked like more of the same.

I played a bit of it at the Eurogamer Expo and it was certainly one I thought I’d try out when it’s released in January 2010.

Then the reviews starting coming in – lots of high scores and in particular two extremely high scores: 40/40 in Japanese mag Famitsu and 10/10 in Edge magazine. Two magazines that are famous for not dishing out high scores unless games really deserve them.

Well having had a chance to sit down and explore the demo I’m very impressed.

There seems to be a huge amount of combos with various weapons involved – not sure if these will be available from the start but they are in the demo – which for the most part appeared by luck until I learnt the combos 🙂

I haven’t played a button masher of this type for quite a while so it was nice to get involved in a game with so much going on at once.

You can build up powerful ‘super’ attacks which are brilliant and come with a touch of humour as well – unsurprising in a game that has the main character’s hair double up as her outfit! 😆

First impressions are good – still not 100% sold on this being one to pick up immediately upon release though.
