Attack of the Fanboy:
Vanquish was in the traditional sense, an arcade game. It looked like one and played like one, the only problem is the developers tried to also make it something that it was not. The incorporation of the asinine story and inability to actually convey said story throughout the game made Vanquish a bit confusing. Forgetting about all that was supposedly going on and focusing on just the action at hand Vanquish is pretty damn good. The visuals are amazing, the combat was good but not great, and the action fast paced and hectic. But one thought just kept going on in my head while I was playing this game, and that was " I could have just played the demo and had the same experience"
