Have You Played: Vanquish

TGH Writes: "For those who have let this excellent title slip by them, Vanquish is an amazing third-person cover based shooter, and if you’re looking for a six to seven hour non-stop roller coaster ride of high speed, high octane gaming greatness, then Vanquish‘s single-player campaign is definitely for you." (PS3, Vanquish, Xbox 360)

I've played it multiple times. Excellent game. I love the pacing of the game.

Played it and it was ok but not what it was hyped up to be.

The thing that killed it for me was how easy the game was and the constant holding your hand through out the entire game.

I do however give it some credit for being diffrent but a shame that it was so easy...hope platnium games strays away from trying to casualize MGS Raising. More developers need to play games like Ninja Gaiden Black or Demon Soul.

You know that Bayonetta (also made by Platinum Games) can be played on "Very Easy" mode? I don't think they are gonna stray way from trying to attract a wider audience.

You're serious?

It's like you're completly ignoring the existence of anything but the difficulty levels deemed BRAINDEAD RETARDED CASUAL and CASUAL. Or the God Hard difficulty, which rivals Ninja Gaiden Black's Master Ninja in challenge. If you're really complaining about it being easy, I would recommend you to go complete the game in that mode. Rather, I dare you.

Play it on god hard and tell me Demon Souls is harder. Seriously, Vanquish is a hard game. The PS3Trophies.org trophy guide lists it at 9.5 and has a 8.5 overall rating on ps3trophies.org. (with most people listing it as 10/10...) This is completely due to how frightening Tactical Challenge 6 is (which is EASIER than god hand...). So yeah, easy and hand holding indeed.

Also just to note, I platinumed Bayonetta, Vanquish and Anarchy Reigns.

I've been meaning to, but I have school, work and married life keeping me busy, and a huge backlog of games. I'll probably order it this week.

Played it multiple times and it was great.

Reminded me of playing old skool Contra but in 3D.

The game had a very damning issue; melee sharing power with the jets. You had to play the game strictly as a shooter because bothering to use melee left you exposed for a long time.

Plus, it was very low on content.

A decent bargain bin pickup, but that's it.

And once again, my favorite critic says it best:
http://www.destructoid.com/...

"For instance, Sam's rocket gliding ability is governed by an energy meter. His melee attacks are governed by the same meter. Yes, you read that right, Sam actually needs energy to punch his opponents, and once he's landed a single successful punch, he can't glide away since the energy meter completely drains. Several times, I punched an enemy, failed to kill it thanks to Sam's inability to aim his punches properly, and was killed because I could neither defend myself or swiftly escape"

Once you get good at the game (anyone trying to Platinum will soon have to climb the mountain that is Vanquish and realize all the little things you can do to improve) you don't keep the jets on, you tap it like a machine gun that way it auto regenerates whilst you are still moving solving the issue of running out of energy.

Have you played Vanquish? Melee completely depletes your charge.

One of the best third person shooter ever.

This Game Is Underrated!
ab5olut10n  +   908d ago
agree with all above, awesome game
TheMasterShake  +   908d ago
yes i did and game sucks, it was boring, short, and repetitive. platinum games is way overrated.
Knight_Crawler  +   908d ago
Have to agree with everything you said...the one thing that probably would have made this game feel a little bearable would have been co-op.

Can't hate on Kenshiro's favourite game, all it needed was length......

Its a great game along with it spiritual successor Binary Domain.
urwifeminder  +   908d ago
The game was ok nothing worth writing home about but i finished it,its was a shame all the realtime footage they had was not out on the disc as an extra.
SolidMGSnake  +   908d ago
People who hate the game and say its boring ,I honestly think they have no style and skill when they play. Vanquish is a top tier tps game in my book.
thawind  +   907d ago
I need to get it back in my catalog.
JoeSchmoh  +   907d ago
This new gen. of gamers hate on raw games like Vanquish and Bayonetta or even the new Metal Gear Revengence because they're not gamers. They just play shooters and think everything is a co-op deathmatch talking **** over a mic. These arent gamers, they're just into the culture for the social aspect of it, not the actually hobby of videogames. I own 1 FPS game on my PS3.. Counter Strike Global. That's enough..I don't even care for killzone anymore and that was my fav. FPS game.
P.S.- People who diss Vanquish..they might as well diss all the resident evil games because the director basically created every single RE game up to RE4. Sooo.. Vanquish sucks? haha! I cant wait to see Shinji Mikami's new game.

Vanquish is a fantastic game with a corny story. But you don't play a game like this for the story.
