Halfway Done with Bayonetta!

I've spent the past few days immersed in Bayonetta and I have to say, I'm rather impressed! Sure, it feels like Devil May Cry in skin-tight latex and I'm not sure why with all of her magical witch powers she can't concoct a good pair of vision-correcting contacts, but I'm invested, nonetheless.

While the gameplay's more than solid and I certainly appreciate the ability to practice combos at loading screens, I do have one gripe about it- the awful J-pop soundtrack. Oddly enough, in some games I don't mind this type of music (The World Ends With You comes to mind), but even with Bayonetta's over-the-top presentation it just feels...awkward. It's not a huge deal though considering you can turn the music off, but it just seemed oddly out of place in the midst of some of the amazing boss battles I've seen thus far.

Speaking of music, while the score doesn't necessarily sit well with me, the voice acting is at least passable. The sound effects are punchy too, though a few of them sound eerily familiar.

What about you all? Is there anything that irks you about Bayonetta or is it just as flawless as Famitsu would have us believe?
