From PlatinumGames’ legendary director Hideki Kamiya of Resident Evil and Devil May Cry fame, SEGA brings one of the most universally acclaimed character action games of all time to PC. Bayonetta. The last survivor of an ancient witch clan who keep the balance between light, dark and chaos.
Entombed to protect herself – and the world as we know it – Bayonetta is discovered and revived after 500 years, sparking a chain of events with cataclysmic repercussions. Thrust straight into battle, with only one clue to her past, Bayonetta must discover the truth and fight for the future. Her daunting conquest sees her face off against countless angelic enemies and giant foes in a game of 100% pure action.
This PC release brings with it a gorgeous graphic update, with smooth 60fps and 4K visuals you can see every detail the development team created for you. This is truly the definitive edition of this game, and one that you have to pick up if you are a PC gamer, whether you played Bayonetta when it launched originally or not. Bayonetta is a great hack and slash that takes what works in other games and adds its own unique flair and style, which pays off handsomely.
Best non-BotW game to come out this year, it's just awesome, it runs well even on my **** laptop and it looks **** great too, buy it, good pro-consumer practices here.
Awful game on PS3, laggy, bad controlls, long loading screens. All of this has been fixed in the PC version, stable framerates, responsive controlls, loading screens so short i didn't even notice them and it looks great to boot. I gave the PS3 version a 5/10 but the PC version is a solid 10/10, improved in every way and now it's playable. But the best part's that now it's only 20$, pick it up ASAP, it's great.
The most insane, over the top spectacle fighter game I've ever played!
Some people are dismissive as this is a port of an old Wii U game, but don't be fooled, this is one of the best fighter games you can play on PC (or any other system for that matter).
Fluid and incredibly fun combat, rock solid 60 FPS at 1080P with my GTX 1060 with plenty of room to spare and a reasonable price.
I liked Devil may Cry, but I absolutely LOVE Bayonetta!
It runs great, the gameplay's fast and fluid, it's oozing with style, there's not much to complain about here. If i had to nitpick i'd say there are one or two more QTEs then there should be but that's but a scratch on an otherwise perfect behemoth of a game.
A great port of what is still one of the best action games around. Bayonetta is the essential hack-'n-slash.
A masterpiece - when it is a true masterpiece - never gets old.
Fantastic port, great resolution support, great silky smooth 60 fps with no fps drops ever. Great gameplay, great characters, probably the best action game ever created.
Even if its story falls into many amnesia tropes and the graphics are a bit dated, the innovative and enthralling gameplay coupled with its over-the-top-nature make Bayonetta a wild ride that you won't ever want to get off. Sega has mentioned that they want to do more PC ports in the future and, if they are done as well as Bayonetta, I can't wait to see what they bring over next.
This action masterpiece is finally on PC! I'm happy to report that this version of the game is fantastic, tons of options, runs excellently even at 4K and beyond, and it runs well on older hardware. The game itself is incredibly enjoyable, with virtually perfect controls, stunning art direction and it doesn't take itself too seriously which was a breath of fresh air during its original 2010 release on Xbox 360 (and a terrible PS3 version, then a Wii U version in 2014!). The price on Steam as of this review is $19.99/£14.99, and I'd say it's definitely worth it at that price, or you could wait for a sale if you prefer, but definitely check this game out at some point, especially if you are a fan of hack and slash games, as this is a stellar example of one.
The Beat'Em All reference released on January 2010 on Xbox 360 blows its way to PC in one god*amn good port. Well optimized, the game is as crazy as it was seven years ago, the fights are as insane as ever and the already stunning visuals get lifted up through a pile of welcome options. Everything goes fast, the action is really intense and all that speed is channelled into an outstanding staging (including through those breathtaking animations) which raises the fights of this game to the rank of most exhilarating ones ever seen on the BTM field. Clearly worth the price! Better late than never has found its best illustration!
Bayonetta on PC is without a doubt the definitive way to play this game. Most gaming PCs will run it with great performance, and whether it's your first foray into this world or your tenth, it's an adventure worth taking again.
Bayonetta is a real masterpiece, and it's finally available in the best version ever played. The most iconic title developed by PlatinumGames is finally available on PC, and there's really no reason why you should miss it.
