Bayonetta 2 is a hack-and-slash video game published by Nintendo, and developed by PlatinumGames. The game was released exclusively for the Wii U, unlike its predecessor, which was multiplatform on the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360, on September 20th, 2014, and was localized one month later on the 24th.

In February 16th, 2018, the game was re-released for the Nintendo Switch with the previous installment being included as a free download code.

Why It Rocks

  1. The gameplay is fast-paced and contains tons of action, just like the last installment.
  2. This game has some major improvements over its predecessor, like the QTEs being much easier to get through.
  3. Unimaginably beautiful graphics, this makes a Bayonetta game look best looking for a Wii U and Nintendo Switch game.
  4. The music is memorable and keeps you pumped up for more action.
  5. There are Nintendo-themed costumes like Peach and Daisy from Mario, Link from The Legend of Zelda, Samus from Metroid, and Fox from Star Fox.
  6. Tons of replay value.
  7. The newly introduced characters are very interesting, like Loptr and Alraune.
  8. The boss fights are epic and very engaging.
  9. Unlike the first game, this one doesn't degrade you for using your items after clearing a level.
  10. Bayonetta's redesign in this game is decent.
  11. The voice acting is top notch, like Helena Taylor as the titular character, and Crispin Freeman as the Masked Lumen.
  12. There is tons of rich in-game content without the need of being DLC, Season Passes, microtransactions, or any other modern-day monetization practices.
  13. While still confusing, the plot in the game is very interesting.
  14. Even though it's barebones, the Switch port adds some new features like amiibo support.

Bad Qualities

  1. Some of the missions can get repetitive at times. This is most likely due to the lack of platforming and puzzle solving.
  2. Jeanne and Luka have their roles dumbed down. For instance, Jeanne is reduced to the damsel in distress role with very little screen time, and Luka is just a supporting character with comic relief, and also a Butt Monkey.
  3. Like the first game, 90% of the cutscenes are just slideshows with still images in them.
  4. Angel Attack is absent from this game.
  5. As mentioned earlier in #13, the story (or plot) is confusing, which makes some people misunderstand the story.

This is just my opinion, but personally I thought Luka was just as good in the first game. Sure he has less of a role, but I still love the character

I think he was, too. I added that pointer, anyway, because a lot of people didn't like his role in it, and we all know that these wikis are based on popular opinions, so why not?
