Vanquish (Xbox 360)

 

Pure entertainment: that's Vanquish in a nutshell. This speedy and thrilling third-person cover-based shooter is all madness, overwhelming you with gigantic robots, flurries of gunfire, and explosions so powerful and colorful that you might think you...

Vanquish Review

 

Platinum Games has been making quite a name for themselves and for good reason. Formed by members of Capcom's long-gone Clover Studio and led by Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami, Platinum Games has already gained a reputation for taking familiar...

Once again, Platinum Games has taken what’s been done before, mix it all together, and make for a fun game with Vanquish. However, like their previous title Bayonetta, they’re still missing a quality narrative to make for a completely amazing...

Classic, fast-paced action that rarely lets up. On the surface Vanquish looks like just another humdrum space shooter featuring a nameless protagonist that will get lost somewhere between the latest...

Fast-paced action ; Rock solid frame rate ; Stylish combat ; Spot-on controls

Goofy voice acting ; Definitely a short ride

What If Gears was in Space, had Faster Paced Gameplay and Used Bullet Time…

Vanquish is an adrenaline infused rocket ride of a game. The explosive thrills should have no problem holding the attention span of any gamer that picks up a controller. The higher difficulty provides a decent challenge without feeling too cheap (one...

With so many third-person cover-based shooters out there, you wouldn't think that a Japanese developer would be the one to truly make something that feels both familiar and incredibly new. Platinum Games, the crazy team behind MadWorld and Bayonetta,...

Tight (and precise) controls; stunning visuals; combat and shooting that sets itself apart from most shooters

The short game length might be a downside for some

Vanquish Review [PS3/360]

 

God, Vanquish is fast. It might take a while to sink in – the tutorial is a tad annoying, so what you can do doesn't really register and subsequently you get perhaps fifteen seconds' control in the middle of a very long cutscene before the first...

Excellent combat ; Fantastic visuals ; Plenty of replay value ; So fast

Main campaign is pretty short ; Reuses enemies ; Some nasty difficulty spikes

Vanquish is a little short on content, but it's still a breathtakingly exciting shooter where those prepared to put the time in to master it will love it to bits.

What's this? Another cover based third person shooter a la Gears of War? Before all the outcries start, this game does have unique twists. For one, it's created by those who gave us Bayonetta, so expect some serious bat-poop craziness. With a main...

More!

Plus : non-stop action, fast paced, great weapons, great boss battles, AR mode

Minus: A bit on the short side, plot is all over the place, voice acting is horrendous, no online multiplayer

Speaking of which, the weapons in Vanquish aren’t really anything new or out of the ordinary but they get the job done. From the machine gun to the sniper rifle, every weapon has its place. You’re going to do more damage with the heavy machine gun...

At first glance, it seems that Vanquish is a little bit in love with Metal Gear Solid; not that they're similar games. Far from it, in fact. But with a gruff-sounding hero in Sam Gideon, channelling the wise-ass gravelly tones of Solid Snake and a...

Keep your fingers crossed that SEGA and Platinum Games continue to work together, because if they keep putting out quality products like Vanquish, then everyone's a winner. It doesn't quite reach the dizzy heights of Bayonetta and it's nowhere near as...
