1MrGawainSun 10th Mar 2019 Bayonetta 2 has for recent memory been my favourite game of all time. I love the speed of it’s fighting, the variety of gameplay that doesn’t distract from the action game it is, the ridiculousness of the bosses, and it’s tongue and cheek humour. It’s a mature game that holds the concept that gameplay matters above all else like Nintendo titles. So with a Japanese developed DMC coming out, and all the reviewers going mad about it, I decided to try it out as the series that Bayonetta was born from. Starting it up, there are obvious similarities between the two- the almost linear path, the combo system, the upgrading, the support characters, and obviously the fact you’re fighting giant demon things with weird designs. The humour is similar. But Devil May Cry 5 isn’t as concise as B2. There’s a lot more wandering around and a lot less set piece fights. The combat isn’t as fast and the dodge mechanic isn’t as important to use as Witchtime. The music is full on metal instead of the catchy Pop behind Bayonetta. Obviously the graphics are fantastic and sometimes almost lifelike, but the designs are not as iconic as Bayonetta. I like the game, but it still isn’t as good as Bayonetta 2. Where B2 is a 10, DMC5 is an 8. I’m curious to see what other people think? Isn't it obvious that Falco Lombardi is actually a parrot?
