PushSquare: "In many ways, Vanquish is exactly what you’d expect it to be. It’s Japanese developers attempting to create a Western game. And so it feels distinctly like Gears Of War. Character movement is chunky, targeting is smooth and the gun-play is beefy and responsive. But it’s also being developed in Japan; so it’s all a bit bonkers. For example, your character can slide across the floor at furious speeds. And he can slow down time. Oh, and the enemies? Yeah, they fill the screen."
