Bayonetta is Crazy

Bayonetta is not a great game, but I can't seem to stop playing it.  It isn't a bad game by any stretch.  It's almost a re-imagining of Devil May Cry with a female protagonist.  The gameplay feels like Devil May Cry; slash and hack with some dodging thrown in.

The story is where Bayonetta goes absolutely nuts.  One cutscene had gratuitous ass/crotch close ups, headstones falling like dominoes, a random black guy with one-liners, losing all of the main chick's clothes, making new clothes out of hair, and a dragon.  It's like a train crash.  It's so bad that I just can't look away.

One gameplay sequence had me fight on top of a falling clock tower which proceeded to explode three separate times while being attacked by a giant dragon.

By the way, Bayonetta has guns in her hands and on her feet.  If you thought duel wielding was intense just wait until you see quad wielding.

She also has the habit of using all of her hair to finish her attack combos.  It often forms a giant fist or foot to pulverize her enemies.  Her hair is also what makes up her clothing... so when she does strong attacks she becomes almost naked.

These are just a few of the crazy things I can think of off the top of my head.  If you want an insane story where everything is over the top, play Bayonetta.

It may not be a great game but it's entertaining.
