    Bayonetta 2 is Action video gaming perfected. The game is simply great, with amazing set pieces and a crazy story, but the real highlight of the game is the combat that simply thrives on letting the player figure out the best ways to tackle a fight without holding your hand. With the extra modes and the added bonus of the first game, there is no getting around it – this game is a masterpiece and a must have on the Switch.

    Its predecessor still stands as one of the finest games of its genre. To have surpassed that with Bayonetta 2, and to have created a game that will be remembered as an absolute classic, is nothing short of astonishing.

    Bayonetta 2 is one of the best "hack´n slash" games you can play in any console. It delivers intense combat, charming characters and non stop fun. On the down side, the Switch version is almost identical to the Wii U release.

    Where Bayonetta 2 for the Wii U left competing titles far behind, the Switch version shatters them completely. Although there isn't a lot of new content, a stable framerate and neat touch controls take the game to a higher level.

    It’s without a doubt, one of the greatest action games in the past decade.

    The remastered version of Bayonetta 2 is a moral imperative for every owner of the Nintendo Switch who didn't play the most stylish and crazy action series of all time. There are some issues with the framerate here and there (especially in the exploration sequences), and the screen of the console has a better image quality than the TV. Nonetheless, a must-have for every action fan out there.

    Bayonetta 2 represents the highest point touched by the action genre, with a superfine and refined gameplay, and a totally out of the box narrative. The Switch version brings small improvements to the technical sector, and enjoys a portability that everyone now craves.

Just did not like the amiibo rewards, but it comes with the Nintendo territory... Still, great story, over the top action and style! Kudos for Platinum Games! Expand

It is the Devil May Cry on steroids. The combos are easy to pull off, but they do take practice. You will be destroying demons in no time with some practice. The story is crazy, but that is fine, it whisk you up with how silly it all is, but there is some deep emotions in the game as well to keep it grounded.
    The graphics get a mild upgrade, it is the frame rate that got upgraded the most and it helps. The smoother frame rate helps pull off combos much easier and keeps the action going so you don't lose momentum. Better shadows and lighting do help the atmosphere.
    The controls are butter smooth and they don't put too much on the player. You do get some tutorials to help you figure out how to do a lot of the combos, but it wants you to experiment with button pushing and analog pressing. The set pieces are just breathtaking and set a new bench mark for action games.
    If you think what you see in COD is amazing, you ain't seen nothing yet. The action pieces on this are simply amazing and will keep blowing you away, even after you have played it over 10 times. Simply put, this is the action masterpiece to get. This game is better than the game that inspired it. DMC, which is saying a lot, but this game is leagues ahead of any action game today, so if you don't have it, get it, and is there enough new content to get it again? Not a whole lot, but the portability aspect alone makes it worth 60 bucks. Get this game now.

    Less than 2 weeks ago, I reviewed the first "Bayonetta" game and I gave it a 9 out of 10. I thought it was a pretty awesome game that's agedLess than 2 weeks ago, I reviewed the first "Bayonetta" game and I gave it a 9 out of 10. I thought it was a pretty awesome game that's aged pretty well 8 years later. Now, keep that in mind for a second: I gave that game a 9 out of 10 less than 2 weeks ago, you got that? Now, I want to think about the worst action-orientated game you've ever played. Anything. You have one? Good. Now, consider this: having just played and beaten "Bayonetta 2," I have to say this, and some may disagree, but here it is: "Bayonetta 2" makes the first "Bayonetta" game, a 9 out of 10 game, in my eyes, look like that absolutely awful action-orientated game that you're thinking of right now. That's how fantastic "Bayonetta 2" is.
    The sequel that may not have happened had it not been for Nintendo, "Bayonetta 2" may be one of the finest action games of all time, and it's definitely gonna be remembered as a highlight of the eighth generation. The visuals are vibrant and gorgeous, the story brings even more of the campy fun of the first game (with some more high-stakes, badass action as well), the gameplay remains very smooth and the boss battles even more exciting than before, the combat system has been improved in many ways to be faster, more fluid, and much deeper than before, and despite the relatively short length of the game, there's a lot of stuff to collect and do here. I really cannot complain about a thing with the game even if I tried, "Bayonetta 2" is the rare sequel to an already-great game that not only outdoes its predecessor, but runs circles around said predecessor to the point where it makes the old game look like total garbage. This is a game that everyone should experience and, now that it's on the Switch and plays at 60 FPS...what the hell are you waiting for? Go buy this game!!!!!
    Final rating: 10 out of 10 "Fantastic"
