It's like a Ninja Gaiden game, but with Metal Gear Solid characters and story elements. In other words, it's awesome. The controls take some time to get used to, but everything has a very familiar Ninja Gaiden feel. All with the quirky jokes that Metal Gear fans will love.

Score: 8.0 (Great!)

Jonathan Oyama Platinum did a good job with Bayonetta, though. As much as I hated certain sections, I thought the battle system was solid. I just liked watching time slow down after dodging a move. Or maybe I've just watched far too many anime shows where that same thing happened in a battle. Lol.

Sandy Vich My problem with Bayonetta was the absolute insane number of combos at your disposal. You'd think that couldn't be a bad thing, but after 20 hours of play I felt like I had only scratched something like 10% of the combat mechanics. Eventually I'd get to the point where my brain just couldn't keep them all straight anymore. I'd try out a new weapon in a difficult section and then the next time I'd try it out I had practically forgotten how to use it. It felt like doing homework. It made the whole experience feel like an unintuitive struggle and like I was playing the game "wrong." I still consider it a good game but for me it falls short of my all time favs like Ninja Gaiden and DMC3.

Jonathan Oyama I still crack up whenever I think about Devil May Cry. I mean, there's scenes about "LIIIIGHT" and then there was that escape using a biplane, ripped straight out of Sonic 2. Mwahaha. Fun times. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=79ddOyvnh6o

Just beat the main campaign.
I started with keyboard & mouse, but found the camera controls to be sub-par. Then I switched to the Steam Controller. Played better that way.
Overall, most of the camera issues don't come from the control method, so much as that the game is trying to both control my camera on its own, as well as allow me to move it myself. Gets really annoying.

I sucked at parrying, but was great at dodging, so used that up until Sam, where somehow--BAM, mastered parrying. Great! From that point on, parrying seemed like a requirement! Before then, dodging worked in every situation, as it grants you invincibility frames.
In most games, I'm excellent at blocking and dodging. Not sure what it is about the timing in this one that threw me off, 'cuz now that I've learned it, it's just muscle memory.

Precise aiming in blade mode was not great with a Steam Controller, as it seemed that Raiden would attack once the "right stick" is released. In this case, that simply meant not moving my thumb, so unless I was in constant motion, he'd attack. This made the last boss fight nearly impossible... so I placed down my controller and used my keyboard & mouse every time I had to slice at the rubble
Genius!
Lucky the game allowed for a seamless transition like that, no need to open any menus.

Overall, the game is very easy, even though I never felt that I was "good" at it. It's okay. I can't imagine ever replaying it. I'd be up for a sequel though, if it delivered enough improvements.
Not marking as an opinion because these are just my initial thoughts after beating.
I'll play the DLC soon enough.

Retro Wolf What difficulty did you play it on? Theres a better sense of challenge on very hard and revengeance mode. Normal and hard are a cakewalk.

Demi Axersia Yes, but the PC is a neutral platform, and the 360 controller officially supports it with its own API and everything. It's really no different from seeing the Unreal logo pop up when you boot up a game.

rockshard PhD "PC is a neutral platform" I know, right? If I was a PC gamer I'd be proud of the fact and would have liked to enjoy having an identity separate from either Sony, MS, or Nintendo. I no longer have that once Xbox becomes the official controller of the PC. Not to mention Alienware bundling systems with actual first party Xbox controllers, as if to drive the point home.

Demi Axersia In all fairness, what OS are you using for gaming? That's right, Microsoft Windows. No, don't lie, you're not using Linux.

This game does dangerous things to my otherwise perfect blood pressure. ETA: Like, I genuinely have barely been enjoying this game beyond the first chapter (or was it a prologue?). I like the boss fights but everything else is irritating as hell. idk if I'll finish it.

Giga Pudding It doesn't really have a difficulty curve. After the Prologue, the game goes: ''well, hopefully you've learned the ins and outs of the combat, because shit is about to get real REAL soon and there will be no holding hands''. It takes time to adjust to its parrying mechanics that control-wise are unlike anything I've ever played, but once you get into that state of mind the game becomes a joy to play and easy to cheese through. I was infuriated with it on 2 boss fights (still was getting to grips with the mechanics), but on NG+ I totally cheesed through it and enjoyed it even more. Dat feeling of satisfaction...

This game might not last with me long. I'm terrible at this parrying stuff.

Robert Berlin I can't imagine that anyone managed to instantly get a hang of the parrying system when they played Revengeance for the first time so don't give up just yet. It is definitely worth it to keep trying until you get a hang of it because when you can fully grasp the parrying it is one of the most satisfying combat mechanics that I can think of.

I think this will be up next after Lost Odyssey. Gonna need something quick and brainless after a 100+ hour, tough as nails JRPG.

Giga Pudding Btw, when will your opinion of LO be up?

Stephanie Taylor Once I finish it! I'm going for all the achievements so that's why it's taking me a while. Might have been able to finish it this weekend if it hadn't been for Anime Boston.

Jonathan Oyama I know, right? It's taking me forever to finish Lost Odyssey. I got lazy and just skipped to the heavy action of Metal Gear Rising. So now I just mix everything up between Metal Gear Rising and Lost Odyssey. Maybe this'll help me whittle down the backlog...
