If you're still on the fence regarding the Wii U, then Bayonetta 2 might just tempt you down. Critics are raving about the stylish melee combat sequel, which is exclusive to Nintendo's console.

“The perfect action game” is Joystiq's bold conclusion, which comes with a glowing five star recommendation. “It oozes style and boasts gameplay that's both refined and lacking in excess”, reads the review. “The combat is so purely entertaining that it's easy to lose yourself in the almost-zen flow of dodging, countering and kicking enemies to death.”

Hard-to-please mag Edge also offers full marks, declaring the game to be the Wii U's “first true classic” and delivering a 10/10 score. IGN calls it “one of the most satisfying action games I've played” and gives it a 9.5. Videogamer.com gives it a 9/10, calling it “a game that will legitimately make non-Wii U owners jealous.”

There's a 9/10 from Nintendo Life as well, in a review which calls Bayonetta 2 “brilliant, brash and impossible to ignore”. The review concludes: “a must buy for any action gaming fans. It's fast, intense and ridiculous, all with an entertaining story and a protagonist that is forever subverting and playing with her audience.”

By all accounts, Bayonetta 2 is one of the best games of the year, and if you needed any more encouragement it comes with a copy of the original award-winning 2010 game. Bayonetta 2 is out now for Wii U.
