The RPG crowd might spend hours with a new game to uncover its depths, but Gamevil tried to target the casual audience with Vanquish: The Oath of Brothers instead. This time, they ended up with a simplistic hack 'n slash game that isn't as good as their other titles.
Vanquish's strongest asset is its interesting storyline. Guan Yu, a former Cao Cao samurai, leaves on horseback to search for his brother. Along his journey, he must slay various Cao Cao generals standing in his way. The dialogue is a step above past Gamevil games, in part due to its ability to not ramble on for hours.
