Platinum Games child of love – Bayonetta 2 – was met with critical acclaim when the review embargo lifted yesterday. With the general consensus being that Bayonetta 2 is the best of its “class” and perhaps even the greatest action game ever.
It appears the critical rave for Bayonetta 2 has spurred a surge of pre-orders for the title. According to Amazon’s Best-sellers list, Bayonetta 2 sits at sixth spot, only to be beaten by Super Smash Bros. For 3DS and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel in terms of games.
It is logical to assume that the onslaught of positive reviews have spurred interest in the title beyond the hardcore fans of Bayonetta and Nintendo. It certainly isn’t coincidence… right?
With an aggregate score of 91 at Metacritic, Bayonetta 2 is certainly a title that deserves commercial success, and I hope that many gamers take the jump so they can enjoy this experience.
