Almost done with this one (I think). I'm on Chapter XIV. The action is good and it's less frustrating than, say, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge because the game feels more fair and the controls are tighter.
The writing isn't the greatest, but I am very intrigued by the story. I hope to wrap it up in a couple of hours tonight.
I played both of those, and yes, I can agree with that statement, for sure. Ninja Gaiden I felt like I was just MASHING constantly. With Bayonetta (and 2), I feel like I could actually plan and execute moves.
Keep pluggin' away, brother! Almost there! (Are you going right onto 2?)
