a flaming monkey I haven't played Bayonetta, but this game is actually pretty fun. It's a God of War/Devil May Cry clone, but that doesn't make it bad necessarily.
Smooth gameplay and controls. Good visuals. Interesting environments. Fast loading times. The music is much less annoying than what I've seen of Bayonetta.
The story is pretty stoopid. Characters aren't very interesting. Puzzles are a bit repetitive. It's doubtful you'd play it more than once.
