CheatCC says, "Vindictus is one of the best new games on my radar after seeing it at E3. Nowhere else at the show did I see a single other game trying to do so much to advance the gameplay of an individual genre. In fact, this was ultimately a year of incremental improvements for most genres rather than brave innovation. The slasher genre got a relatively uninventive new 3D Castlevania, and the third-person shooter got the interesting but seldom original Vanquish. Not to mention games like Rage and Bulletstorm, which while amazing in their own right, aren't attempting to rewrite the rules of the genre."
