This special edition of Bayonetta 2 (that includes Bayonetta 1) is well worth its money, especially since you're basically getting the first game free. If you're not sure whether you'll enjoy the games, I recommend playing the Bayonetta 2 demo on the Wii U eShop to see whether it's worth your money or not.
There's only one thing I dislike in the first game and that's the quick time events. Luckily they removed them in the second one, so now you wont die unexpectedly. Besides that, I definitely agree with all the high praise it got.
