E3 2014: Bayonetta II


It’s been an agonizingly long time since the release of Bayonetta I, a stylized and widely popular third-person action game developed by Platinum Games and published by Sega.

As sequels tend do go, successive versions don’t always live up to the original, which are often characterized by ham-handed, rushed productions that rely on the game’s brand identity to bring in the blind and faithful for the sake of quick profits.

Fortunately, Bayonetta II does not fall under the category of overly-hyped sequels, as Gearburn editor Steven Norris enthusiastically attests in his review. If only Nintendo could churn out more games like Bayonnetta II, then perhaps they can still give their larger competitors a run for their money.
