Bayonetta sports some of the slickest, deepest combat for the genre, and it’s wrapped up in an absurd story that barely tries to be coherent. Vanquish is a white-knuckle thrill ride that makes up for its short length by never letting up on the action. There may not be anything new here for those who’ve already given them both a spin, but if you are a fan of the genre and never picked up either, you owe it to yourself to do so now.
Both titles have great visuals and combat mechanics, and while neither game is incredibly long, they fit the bill for quality of gameplay over quantity. Fans of the newer PlatinumGames titles that missed these games during their original release owe it to themselves to check out these re-releases as they offer some of the best action combat from the previous console generation.
The duo of Platinum-developed titles in the Bayonetta and Vanquish 10th Anniversary Bundle are at the zenith of their respective genres because of their undying commitment to responsive controls and deep, rewarding gameplay mechanics. Playing these titles does not get stale and while it is frustrating that Sega refused to celebrate these classic games with more extras and additional content, they do stand on their own merits even a decade later.
