      Over the top Hack and Slash!

      Bayonetta 2 begins right where the first one end, so if you want to know the whole history you will have to play the first one, which is very easy, given that this game came with Bayonetta 1. The Game is an amazing hack and slash that doesn't take itself too seriously, this combined with a great list of character, a very satisfying fighting and a decent amount of different weapons, make this game a must have if you like the sexy Umbra Witch. Pros: * Amazing environment's and characters * Huge over the top fights * Great score system that keep you replaying * Great Soundtracks * Huge bosses * Online mode is quite interesting and allow you to buy all your stuff Cons: * Very often the fights turn into a mess and you have to rely on random button pressing * Difficulty can spike really high then goes back to hold handing * Because the missed Muspelheim portals you will very often have to backtrack which is very annoying. * Enemy's can feel a little repetitive from time to time (more if you just played the first Bayonetta) * Tons of invisible walls (classic Platinum Games) * Some Weapons can feel a little useless in comparison

      Ridiculously Fun

      It's awesome that is comes with the first Bayonetta for free, so you can get aquainted with the story. Bayonetta is a good game, pretty fun, and beautiful to look at. The difficulty is outrageous, and the controls didn't port over very well. Bayonetta 2, however, is unbelievable. EVERYTHING about the sequel is improved. The game play is the most significant improvement, and makes you feel like an absolute monster once you get practiced and used to it. It all feels so much more tight and responsive than the first, and it's actually possible to target an enemy AND dodge simultaneously, unlike the first. It's even more polished and gorgeous than Bayonetta, and the shop is vast improved. The Amiibo support is so good it feels like cheating almost. You can use 32 Amiibo per day, which nets you 500k halos, along with a boatload of additional items that you can just stockpile for harder difficulties. This game REALLY rewards Amiibo usage, and it is a literal game changer. After finally being able to play Bayonetta 2, I could not be more excited for Bayonetta 3 in the future. Bayonetta 2 is a must have if you own a Switch, for sure.

      This game is a lot of fun. This purchase includes Bayonetta 1 in addition to Bayonetta 2. Bayonetta 1 is a much better game with a more easily followed story; the gameplay is very similar between the two games. I'm really impressed with how the developers managed the female lead. Gameplay wise: the main campaign is short, but there is lots of replayability with different difficulty settings, different weapons and items to mix up the battles. The game hinges on replayability, so this central to the game. Trying to get "Perfects" in each level adds to replayability. Bayo 2's story is kinda all over the place, and there's an online mode which isn't very active and I haven't played it much. In Bayo 2 I feel they stripped some of the femininity of Bayo 1 (likely to appeal to a more PG audience). The game has different costumes in addition to weapons that allow players a sense of individuality.

      Great Gameplay and Story

      These are some great games, the action is over the top and so much fun. When I played the original Bayonetta I was pleasantly surprised by the charming story and great characters. I'm not a big fan of Japanese story telling at all these days as it tends to be so heavy on exposition with characters explaining every little detail about themselves and the world, without allowing there to be any subtle inferences of character traits and emotions, or storytelling through the action and visuals. What a pleasant surprise to find out that Bayonetta has none of these negatives AND has a very engaging story and cast of characters that will have you wanting to see it through to the end! My only complaint would be how dated the original Bayonetta looks today.

      Bayonetta 2 Just Got Even Better.

      Even though I still own Bayonetta 1 and 2 on the Wii U, I felt like the game was absolutely worth revisiting on the Switch. Both games have the same type of game combo-based beat-em-up gameplay (think Devil May Cry) with flashy finishing moves. Both games can be difficult at times so you shouldn't expect a walk in the park. The visuals are stunning, especially when it comes to character models. Both Bayonetta and her foes are brilliantly designed. The music is also a huge plus for both games. Bayonetta 2 especially has some catchy tunes that I catch myself humming. The story can be a bit hard to follow at times but I still enjoyed it. Bayonetta 2 is one of my favorite games on both Wii U and Switch and those who missed on the Wii U should check it out. Note: At the time of writing, both Bayonetta games come in a single package.

      A welcome return for the umbra witch

      The collection is worth the money for any fan of the high style hack and slash genre. Bayonetta off the bat amps it up to 11. Returning is the lovable umbran witch and the excellent world in which platinum games has created. The fluidity of the combat has been improved along with a much needed boost in frame rate. The Wii u version left much to be desired struggling to hit even 50 and chugging down to low 30's. The switch port however gives it a smooth 60 to high 50' most of the time. Making it feel the way Bayonetta should have in the first place. All in all this is a must have for any switch owner as it is a beautiful treat for all to experience. I'd highly recommend this to anyone that owns a switch.

      Honest Review...

      These games are fun, and enjoyable. It is nice that if you buy it new, you are getting the previous one for free. However, lets be real. These games are both a few years old and are nothing new. The full price of 59.99 (47.99 with gamer unlocked) makes one hesitant. I could see this as 39.99 and even that may be questionable considering that the first one can be found in the bargain bin for less than a twenty spot. I guess the cost of convenience and portability is a factor. Make no mistake, do not let these gripes get in the way of enjoying a watermark in gaming, but this is akin to companies releasing a classic movie (Scarface, Terminator 2, etc) on new special edition blu ray for full price. Great game (s) sour price.

      This game was an absolute joy to play. First off, getting both games for the price of one was an incredible deal. The game plays like a Devil May Cry or God Of War game with all the flashy combos of DMC and brutality of GOW. On normal, these games play out to be just perfectly difficult where it makes you earn the win but doesn't ever get to point of being frustrating. Story, like most of these style of games, isn't the best. I was surprised though, by how much I enjoyed it. Bayonetta as a character is not who she seems and actually has quite a story arc that I wasn't expecting. If this game falls into your wheelhouse of genres you enjoy, you don't want to pass this up. Oh snap, and you can't take it where ever you go cause it's on Switch.
