Bayonetta

Bayonetta, an amnesiac ass-kicking witch and sole remnant of an ancient clan of shadow witches, fights to both regain her memories and save the future. While holding off hordes of angelic foes and standing off against gigantic enemies she must uncover the truth behind why she was entombed 500 years ago and why her memories are locked away. Be prepared to dole out countless hair based attacks that can form gigantic demons and avoid blows from your enemies by perfect dodging and subsequently pausing time itself.

Originally spawned from PlatinumGames' renowned director Hideki Kamiya, famed for other titles such as Resident Evil and Devil May Cry, SEGA brings you this universally acclaimed character action game.

From the game's Wikipedia page:

"Bayonetta takes place in Vigrid, a fictional city in Europe. The game stars the eponymous character, a witch who is capable of shapeshifting and using various firearms. She also possesses magical attacks, and she can use her hair to summon demons to dispatch her foes. The game features a rating system, which gives players a grade based on their performance, and a combat system that is similar to the Devil May Cry series, also created by Bayonetta creator Hideki Kamiya."
