Kyle at The Gaming Vault throws in his two cents about Platinum's demo of fast-paced third-person shooter Vanquish.
To call this game stunning would be an understatement.
I think we have a contender for my personal Game of the Year. The worst part is, Platinum is contending against itself! Bayonetta is my other choice!
Same. It's gonna be either of the two. Or maybe LittleBigPlanet.
For me, GOTY will be Vanquish or BC2.
Bayonetta got one of the best Fighting schemes ever. It's fluid the camera doesnt f1ck up like alot of games. I've been playing the Vanquish demo over and over again for the past few days. I'm buying it 1st week. thats for sure.
Too many good games this year for me to just call out one or two.
you can tell it's been a long year with lots of great games... people are already forgetting Mass Effect 2 and God of War 3, and then there is Red Dead, heavy Rain.. it's been a long year with a long list of great games. still i think the best is yet to come, and Vanquish looks to be a great game. love the syle and theme.
is the most advanced combat system in gaming history,i'm almost addicted i bought bayonetta official guide from couple of days back i'm impressed with the things i can do still , for vanquish i hop so have same level with unlocks and replay value like bayonetta as i already pre ordered really those kind of games is a proof single player can be much more fun that multiplayer games
I really enjoyed the diversity of Bayonetta, and I hope that Vanquish offers the same kind of variety in gameplay as Bayonetta did. Although, I hope it's not TOO much like Bayonetta, but Platinum/Clover have more than proven that they're able to handle more than one kind of project.
... this has been a stunning year, with some groundbreaking stuff. Great time to be a gamer! (apart from the whole DLC-crap that's going on...)
TBH its way 2 many GOTY contenders GOW3, Heavy Rain, ME2, Vanquish, Halo Reach, LB2, and GT5. I really dont know who will win it got a strong feeling its going to be Halo Reach or GT5 since their the most wanted and you know how the media are.
I wasn't really a fan of the demo. This game seems way to overrated. Aside from the eye-catching gameplay there's nothing astonishing about it. I liked the write-up. Good job!
Play it again, man, and this time don't concentrate too much on running and gunning and more on the experimentation aspect of it.
... sliding up to an assaillant, kick him, and from the backflip start shooting him, etc etc. Ow, and don't forget about getting in one of those mechs... Anyway, I really liked the demo, even though I'm playing on an old crappy non-HD tv... I also LOVE the fact that you can choose to play with the japanese voices and english subs. I wish more japanese developers would include that option.
Yeah, I wasn't 100% sold either. I'll give it another go, but it didn't grab me instantly like it seemed to do for some people.
... but I kept giving it a chance, and once it 'clicks', it clicks :) I just hope that complete game will have lots of diversity and nice music and a cool story etc etc... but gameplay-wise, I kinda like it. Not sure if it will become 'boring' after a few levels, but considering the creator, I have good hope it won't disappoint me. Don't think I'll be buying this when it comes out though. I still have a massive backlog I need to play (plus getting RDR in a few hours...), and in the coming months I'll probably pick up FIFA11 and Naruto UNS2, so I can wait... :)
This game is nice, day one buy for me. I'm still amaze how that machine transformed into that walking behemoth. Excellent, pure excellency.
I downloaded the demo the other night and had a play with it, I really enjoyed it. I'd definitely like to play the full game after having a go at the demo I think, maybe not day 1 though...kinda have this inkling to buy the Signature Edition of GT5 which I'll maybe need to set aside some money for between now and November lol
The demo is fantastic. If the rest of the game plays like this it is going to be outstanding.
I wasn't completely sold either. But I'm not sold on the concept of third person cover based shooters anyway, so maybe I'm just biased. I should probably have to give it another go and force myself to adapt to the controls.
