Action 29 October 2009
A dynamic third-person perspective hack-n-slash action game developed by Japanese studio Platinum Games led by Hideki Kamiya. The main protagonist, Bayonetta, is a sexy witch who, 20 years prior to the events depicted in the game, woke up in a chest at the bottom of a lake. She has no memories of how she got there or what happened before. Forced to fight against forces of Heaven that constantly attack her, the protagonist gradually learns new facts about her past. The gameplay focuses on traveling through subsequent locations while eliminating enemies and very original bosses. During the game, the player uses a mix of handguns and melee weapons (including items taken from fallen enemies). By using the power of her hair, Bayonetta can also summon powerful demons and hellish torture machines that allow her to eliminate her enemies in a very effective way. Witch Time, a very useful ability that slows time, proves to be an alternative key to victory in most cases.
