    Bayonetta 2 is Action video gaming perfected. The game is simply great, with amazing set pieces and a crazy story, but the real highlight of the game is the combat that simply thrives on letting the player figure out the best ways to tackle a fight without holding your hand. With the extra modes and the added bonus of the first game, there is no getting around it – this game is a masterpiece and a must have on the Switch.

    Bayonetta 2 on the Nintendo Switch doesn't change the fundamentals: it remains the same exquisite and breathtaking experience as before, delivering an excellent gameplay and insane action, along with the possibility to play this masterpiece anytime. One of the greatest action games of all time justifies its presence once again to all players out there.

    Bayonetta 2 for the Nintendo Switch brings a colossal Hack & Slash experience to a portable console for the first time, which can also be enjoyed at home in the living room. A port of a sublime game that could have had more work done on its graphics and gameplay, but that exceeds expectations.

    Bayonetta 2 looks and plays better than ever, and somehow surpasses the original. A must have action game.

    After four years Bayonetta 2 remains the best action game ever made, maybe less refined in its combat if compared directly to its amazing predecessor, but still brilliant and spectacular like no other in its genre. A pity there's pretty much nothing new in this port.

    Bayonetta 2 represents the highest point touched by the action genre, with a superfine and refined gameplay, and a totally out of the box narrative. The Switch version brings small improvements to the technical sector, and enjoys a portability that everyone now craves.

It is the Devil May Cry on steroids. The combos are easy to pull off, but they do take practice. You will be destroying demons in no time with some practice. The story is crazy, but that is fine, it whisk you up with how silly it all is, but there is some deep emotions in the game as well to keep it grounded.
    The graphics get a mild upgrade, it is the frame rate that got upgraded the most and it helps. The smoother frame rate helps pull off combos much easier and keeps the action going so you don't lose momentum. Better shadows and lighting do help the atmosphere.
    The controls are butter smooth and they don't put too much on the player. You do get some tutorials to help you figure out how to do a lot of the combos, but it wants you to experiment with button pushing and analog pressing. The set pieces are just breathtaking and set a new bench mark for action games.
    If you think what you see in COD is amazing, you ain't seen nothing yet. The action pieces on this are simply amazing and will keep blowing you away, even after you have played it over 10 times. Simply put, this is the action masterpiece to get. This game is better than the game that inspired it. DMC, which is saying a lot, but this game is leagues ahead of any action game today, so if you don't have it, get it, and is there enough new content to get it again? Not a whole lot, but the portability aspect alone makes it worth 60 bucks. Get this game now.

    This game may have some flaws, but as far I'm concerned it succeeded in what every game should try being fun to play.
    Great gameplay and great story, the only con I see in this game was that the story mode was kind short (finished in less than 8 hours), but this doesn't mean the game is short on content since there are dozens of challenges that I skipped to continue the story(it was so good and I wanted to know what was going to happen!)

Les améliorations du framerate seules en font une meilleure expérience que la version Wii U, et les costumes disponibles grâce aux amiibo ajoutent un bonus intéressant, même s'il n'y a pas de nouveau contenu substantiel pour les anciens joueurs. Il est décevant que la version Switch ne puisse pas gérer plus que le 720p en mode TV, mais cela dit, le style artistique fantastique de Bayonetta 2 résiste bien à l'épreuve du temps. Expand
