Our examiner, Ben Kendall, first checked Bayonetta 3 14 months ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated 7 weeks ago.
You play a witch called Bayonetta who, along with her demons, fights off invading robotic monsters. You have a wide array of attacks you can string together to deal higher damage. Against tougher enemies, you can channel your sword-demon to gain further abilities (and yet more outlandish costumes). You can also summon huge, bizarre monster mash-ups (like the giant spider scorpion) to ally with you when you are in a particular bind.
Some may be put off by the sheer strangeness (and guns and nudity) but it's this peculiar joy in the bizarre that makes Bayonetta games so much fun. It's a strangely intoxicating mix of quirky humour and over-the-top battles that work surprisingly well with the requirement for expert timing, high skill, and experimentation with the attacks and abilities on offer.
The main character in Bayonetta has always been described as a sexy witch. In this game, however, the developers have included a new Naive Angel mode, which adds extra clothing to the characters.
13+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it's important for parents and guardians to consider the maturity required to process the game content. The game is very hard and requires very precise button presses, fast reactions and good judgement on which moves to use.
