Summary

Wield wild weapons and execute deadly moves—like the powerful Umbran Climax—to take out angels and demons in this breathtaking action game. You can even team up with friends in 2-player online or local wireless co-op fights (additional accessories required; sold separately.) Bayonetta is a butt-kicking, havoc-wreaking witch who wields sweet weapons like pistols, whips, hammers, flamethrowers, and poison bows. But it’s not just about brawn—it’s also about style. Bayonetta is deadly but sleek, with moves like Witch Time that slows down time itself, and the all-new Umbran Climax—a special magic attack that summons Infernal Demons to devastate enemies. The Bayonetta™ 2 game also features an online and local wireless 2-player cooperative mode where players bet halos on their performance and work together to amplify their sass, cause destruction, and score some riches.

I suggest to play the game in order because the second game assume you already played the first game. The tutorial (Bayonetta 2) is not the best if you haven't played the first.

Both stories are great, is like playing DMC but as a woman. If you like to explore, you will get better improvements. Most of the items you have to collect is well hidden.

One more thing, you should play it with a pro control unless you want to destroy your joycons

This is a fun and exciting game! It’s one of the most action-packed games on the Switch. Great fighting style. Quite a lot of different enemies and bosses- not just reused over and over. It’s a pretty short game- a little over 6 hours for me. The story is not much to speak of- but it’s not that important in this type of game. It’s a game I can see replaying again. I highly recommend!

The first Bayonetta is slowly showing its age, but its more robust sequel remains at the top of its game. It contains some of the best combat mechanics that are perfectly integrated in the most over-the-top, outlandish scenarios. It’s stylish, frantic and oddly addicting. Unfortunately, the story may as well be non-existent and the voice acting from characters such as the newly-introduced Loki will make you want to skip cutscenes.

Even though both games are coming well after players enjoyed them on several other platforms, the Bayonetta games remain near-perfect examples of pure, unfiltered action and spectacle. Both Bayonetta games seamlessly blend escalating action with imaginative design and a combat system that toes the line between accessibility and making you feel like a true badass, and rewarding players with careful timing and experimentation.

I’m sure some prodigy will end up beating both games on the hardest difficulty using the touch controls alone, however. These minor hiccups aside, you absolutely can’t go wrong with this version of Bayonetta 1&2. Assuming you have any taste for frenetic action games, these two titles represent the cream of the crop.
