How anyone rated this 8/10 or above is beyond me :confused:

Anyone that wasn't sure which to choose: Bayonetta or Darksiders? Save yourself the hassle and just get Bayonetta!


why do you say that?, I was hoping it was good....bayonetta although it is getting a lot of high praise isnt for me......I just dont have an inclenation to want to play it...especially after the demo...wasnt bad just not spectacular

They are totally different types of game so i don't really see the comparison tbh.

Darksiders is an action adventure like Zelda/Metroid
Bayonetta is a beat-em up like Dante's Inferno or God of War

Dirty130 has hidden his games on his profile so there is no way of even telling if he has played the game yet or is just voicing an uninformed opinion. Even if he has played it different people like different games

Either way check them both out for yourselves and make your own opinions. I'm going to play Bayonetta for sure it looks fun.
