The plot to Bayonetta 2 is certainly a LOT easier to follow than the plot to the first game, largely because most of the original cast returns and thus no need for new introductions and the story had all of it's groundwork already covered. If it does suffer any, it is because there isn't much that Bayonetta 2 can do that hasn't already been done in the first game. I mean, the first game ends with you punching a god into the sun, it's kind of hard to top that kind of finale. However, if you didn't care for the first game's plot, you'd probably won't care for this game as well, and if you never played the first game then you'd likely be confused about what is going on. But hey, that's why Nintendo included a copy of the first game with Bayonetta 2.

In the End, did I enjoy Bayonetta 2? HELL YEAH! Is it as good as the first game? Not AS good. See the first game just had this wonderful blend of sheer ridiculousness and ball-busting difficulty that made it a fresh and enjoyable experience from start to finish. Something that felt like it was missing in this era of gaming where everything is taking themselves too seriously and games are often WAY too easy. Bayonetta 2 is STILL harder than most Action games (I'm looking at you DmC) and retains the absurd style the first game had, but the impact is lesser do to the easier difficulty, and the fact that it's really hard to top Bayonetta 1 in terms of outlandishness. Also, Bayonetta 2 does NOT have "Fly Me to the Moon." But it is still a worth while experience and Bayonetta definitely has the potential to be one of the greatest action franchises ever made. Nintendo, DON'T sleep on this series. Bayonetta 2 is Highly Recommended.
Until Next Time.
