Bayonetta 2

Game

Bayonetta 2 carries on the action-style gameplay of its predecessor, in which players play as the eponymous Bayonetta as she fights against various angels (and now demons) using combinations of melee attacks and gunplay. Dodging enemy attacks at the last second activates 'Witch Time', slowing down enemies around Bayonetta and allowing players to easily retaliate and solve certain environmental puzzles. Players are also able to use special moves called Torture Attacks, trapping opponents in infernal devices for extra points. Weapon customisation from the first game also returns, allowing players to equip combinations of new weapons on both Bayonetta's hands and feet.

Bayonetta 2 is an absolute masterpiece that should be experienced even if the character action game genre is not normally your cup of tea.

That Bayonetta 2--a homage to classic game design and escapism--should be the most fun I've had playing a game all year is unexpected.
