Bayonetta Out Now for Games on Demand!

Although it was mentioned last week, it’s worth a reminder: Bayonetta is out right now on Microsoft’s Games on Demand service for Xbox 360!

The game’s been covered and I said my piece on it in last week’s article but still, it’s worth mentioning, this is a hell of a game. Sprawling and epic with levels and boss fights on a fantastic size and scale, the game is both dramatic and has a delicious, tongue-in-cheek sense of fun.


I’ve been playing through it just recently. I was delighted to find that towards the end of the game is an extended and spot-on homage to After Burner Climax, one which perfectly integrates Bayonetta’s style and gameplay with the arcade-adrenaline of After Burner. Bayonetta is filled with winking references to other games, but its style is inimitably its own.

At this point the awards and accolades should speak for themselves. Games on Demand makes the game even easier to get. This is as challenging and dynamic an action game as you could possibly hope for on a console — have at it!
