He is right about the sex innuendo's and sex related things of sexy sex stuff in that there is a lot of it. But with that aside the combat was fun until the harder difficulties when you just barely make it through the level by the skin of your ass and instead of congratulating you the game says "sorry you didn't complete it the way we wanted you to Stone award...and a Joe Pesci sounding guy named Enzo"

Wow, after all the hype everyone's been given I was really expecting him to give this a positive review.

Good review. agree that the QTE were extremely poorly placed. but Also since you apparently have all 3 systems. it's your own fault for getting the PS3 version. since the game comes out later in australia you would have had at least a week to find out that the xbox version has no load times and better graphics

YES!! Yahtzee inadvertently agrees with me that Bayonetta is a f*cking giraffe!

Seriously, throughout the whole game, nearly everyone in it had the most absurd bodily proportions, that it was literally hurting my eyes looking at them. Except for the little girl and final boss. They were normal-looking compared to the rest of the mess.

Ha funny.

Really funny review. Nice to see he admitted that it was a DMC ripoff/spinoff through and through and the fact that we should really get to play/perform the cool stuff in cutscenes

Funny as usual.

Great review.

Phenom828:
Oh my god did he ACTUALLY LIKE IT! or did i misread the entire boob, i mean review?

yup, I think he liked it... I mean, in his own way. I have the game and it is fun.

A more then average episode i guess, i just have one doubt, did he play the 360 version (less lad, more polished graphs etc) or ps3 version?

He menioned ps3 but 360's cover always kept apearing O.O

for once my britishness will give me the upper hand in a game

My favorite bit involved Schoolmarm!Bayonetta. She really does have that sort of look about her.

I'm pleased with the continued use of the term 'spectacle fighter' as well.

While I usually don't take Yahtzees reviews seriously I do have to agree with this one. The sexual exploitation of this game is actually keeping me away from it.
I'm getting sick of games that overuse sex in their games.

Love the vid and oh my god no one's been put on probation this week, it's a new record!

Maybe people are learning! =O

Nice review though, lol, nice description of Bayonetta XD

Actually... *points at post 16*

OT: Yahtzee isn't annoying me as much lately... feels weird...

Pac-Man bit was gold.

was hoping he was joking about continuously reviewing GOW clones...

That was the funniest review in a while. I'm still thinking of picking this one up though--after all that Dragon Age & Assassin's Creed 2 I need a mindless beat-'em-up until GOW3 comes out.

Very funny. My mind boggles at Pacmans story too.

However, still no shattered memorys?! I want to here from a silent hill lover whether the new one is shit or not, is that too much to ask?

Awww, i was totally expecting a review for mass effect, but since he works like once a week i should expect one i a month or two

I remember those loading times being unbearable and the story being a load of crap (even though I did get it all the first time around, which might be a bad sign), but all in all the game was fun once you stopped your brain from struggling against the head-crushing level of sexualization. Definitely a good rental, and I might even pick it up once the price is down to 30 Euros.

It's just a *little* bit wrong to complain about the excess loading times while showing Bayonetta's Xbox 360 box art...considering the insane loading problem was a PS3 problem only due to Sega's inability to port anything properly.

Best one in a very long time. I never stopped laughing after half way.

Good show. Wow if the story is as complicated as you say, damn it gives me a headache just thinking about it.

So I'm assuming there won't be a borderlands review anytime soon? I'd be really interested in what Ben has to say about it, but I guess it's up to the pubic - I mean public opinion to dictate his course of action.

Dammit, we were so close! >.<

Is the game even out in Australia? Is it even out anywhere? Give the man time.

Great review, though I feel as if the anatomy jokes were a bit forced. Yathzee's far too clever to have to rely on those more than once.

Shattered Memories isn't out in Australia until March, and he can't import Wii games for some reason.

That was the funniest one in a while. loved every second of it. Still planning on getting the game eventually.

He has a twitter account now. WHAT THE FUCKING HELL.

This is blasphemy.

I burst into laugh at the ending. Lmao!

i did not follow that for a second... what's going on...? Are you trying to review the game the same way it tells the story... beyond incomprehensible?

yeah great review ,i get to save money by not getting this pos . hey i'll buy beer instead ... and as for load times , i hate them ... mmmm beer

I've had my doubts lately, but your latest reviews really shows that you still have a truck full of jokes and genital metaphors to fill our brains with.

You need to scream more in videos xD

And I agree, it certinly is a spectical of a spectical fighter and confusing as hell. Beat it recently and tried the Hard difficulty, and damn, could hardly get through the first chapter

As usual, Yahtzee completely shits on some the games I liked the most (Dragon Age: Origins, just to name one, and now Bayonetta).

But fear not, for it is awesome.

How Yahtzee continually keeps these feeling fresh and original blows my mind.

Speaking of other things I can't fathom; I can't figure out why I dislike Bayonetta's appearance so much. It's not just the legs, the whole character looks odd, and I generally like odd which makes it that much more confusing.
