Ragnarok does have the better overall conclusion, but Bayo 3 still has the better gameplay. Though I didn't find it ending as terrible as most fans and shippers make out to be. My problem with Ragnarok is the same I had with the previous game, the forced walking sections that go on for too long and just should have been a cut scene. Bayonetta 3 has a similar problem, though its forced walking only last for about 10 to 15 seconds, but there's at least 10 of them peppered throughout the game. This game I still find better than the original Bayonetta game in term of weapons, set pieces, and more open level design.My one big "mistake" was playing this after that absolutely breath-taking Ragnarok. Both go for that fast action+story thing, so they're similar in my head space for that reason, and Ragnarok is much more fulfilling and awesome that it really highlights how Bayo3 is just a pretty decent action game for like 5-10 years ago.
I didn't think I'd "feel" how old this game feels but I did.
Originally they wanted this game to be open world/semi-open world, and according to Kamiya, that is what they'll be experimenting on next.Bayo4 comes out on newer console(s) I do have, they're going to have to really change things up to capture my interes
