The demo is out for all superior console owners who have accounts in all moonspeak regions.
Ok so I started out a Bayonetta hater, she looked too ugly and that game just looked bland. Around TGS last year I became a beiliver in Bayonetta though as I thought back and it hit me that the only Devil May Cry game I actually bought and liked was 1. After that one everyone in the series just seemed to be missing something I just couldn’t place my finger…They were missing their original creator…this handsome fella
known as Hideki Kamiya.
It’s clear from the demo that Kamiya has brought some…interesting ideas back to the genre he helped create.
For starters the music isn’t shitty [SPOILER]yet secretly awesome[/SPOILER]guitar rock like other games in the genre, it’s this strange mix of J-pop tunes which add this distinct “flare” to the game.
The combat was also…interesting as it’s more heavy on gun play with what seems like fewer melee attacks but it all just flows well. This game just feels different from other 3rd person action games it’s pulling from things like Devil May Cry and God of War but also keeping this distinct charm. The levels seemed kinda bland but the combat is so fun that I didn’t really mind. The last level in the PS3 demo has you fighting in what appears to be a church…and you fight ALL OVER THE CHURCH upside down…side to side… it’s strange yet awesome.
It’s definitely tweaking my brain in a very positive way that hasn’t been tweaked since the first time I played DMC
Welcome back to the genre Kamiya.
