Amidst all the bombshell games, Game4V was finally able to put their hands on a true masterpiece Bayonetta 3, the game that can be seen as the first shot to kick off an epic game season lasting from October. until the end of December this year.
The first thing that impressed me about Bayonetta 3 is that Platinum Game has been able to upgrade the world in the game many times over. If in the previous parts we knew that the world in Bayonetta would have 3 layers: heaven, hell and human world. Then in this part they have turned this world into a literal multiverse, with countless parallel worlds waiting for us to explore. That also explains a lot in previous trailer scenes, we’ve seen Bayonetta dead or mortally wounded so many times. The reason for this is because a mysterious force led by the entity “Singularity” is going through each world to destroy them. Our Lady Bayonetta was asked by Viola, a witch from another world, to help her get revenge after her Bayonetta had failed. I have to say that I can’t fault the plot of the game anywhere, it’s clear that Platinum Game always knows how to take the current attractive factors into its game, when part 2 we can reverse the time part 3. multi world. I even feel that by upgrading the world to the multiverse, it will be much easier to continue the following parts, I will not go into this part too much to avoid spoiling too much for you. lose emotions when playing but trust me the story of the game is enough to make you sit for hours.
Gameplay of Bayonetta 3 is also upgraded with many new features and moves. Because now Bayonetta’s enemies are Homonculi, they are not angels or demons, they are actually created by humans as weapons of mass destruction. This makes the demons summoned by our witch refuse to launch the finishing move because it is not part of the ancient pledge. This forced her to use stronger measures. Thanks to the use of ancient forbidden techniques, the demons can now appear almost completely in the human world, and then they support our witch through new features such as Summon, Sync Attack, Perfect Call. With summon, as its name suggests, Bayonetta will summon one of the demons she is equipping to assist her in attacks, puzzles, etc. (Anyone who has played Platinum’s Astral Chain game will know this) . With Sync Attack at the end of some combos will allow you to summon monsters (a whole one, not a part) to deal a huge amount of damage. Finally, Perfect Call works similar to Witch time but instead of dodging we will call you out to call you out for help. The culmination when we fully charge the comb can, together with the devil we summon, launch a powerful powerful attack. Of course, with the power to destroy the world, the game will not let us abuse the demons comfortably but have to rely heavily on the magic bar so think carefully before starting to summon them. . Besides the combat system, the game also adds side quests about Jeane for us to change the wind. Speaking of innovation, in the game we also have the opportunity to control Viola with many new fighting styles worth trying. In this part 3 we will also witness the appearance of the skill tree, which is not too monumental and troublesome, but still enough for us to be curious to learn more about the game. Weapons in the game are more diverse with many different combo combinations, so even after playing for 3-5 hours, I still can’t explore them all. The boss battles are still epic despite the limited hardware of the Switch, the most impressive will probably be the two kaiju fights (why do I call them that? please play the game for more details)
Although Bayonetta 3 possesses not-so-excellent graphics, the game is still very good compared to other games on Switch. If there was a mod, I would only criticize the multicolor packages of the basic suit, sometimes being too flashy, sometimes too subdued, etc. Then our witch is sexy like that, but in many cutscenes with camera angles. placed in the dead corner made her look quite old. The sound part, I can’t find anything to criticize with many different songs and arrangements that make me listen to it forever.
