GamePro: Vanquish Review

It does offer some interesting variations on a tried and true shooter formula, but GamePro can’t recommend this to anyone looking for a deep and compelling experience. If all you want is an adrenaline rush or to feel like a total badass for short, explosive bursts, however, then it’s something worth considering.

The story is too old to be commented.

I've been watching Gamepro for quite some time, ever since in the 90s with their magazines.

Most of their review scores are suited with the overall game experience, in my opinion.


I thought they would give a great 4.5 / 5 score... : /

Still getting the game nonetheless.

Their main complaints are:

No co-op (or a multiplayer mode of any sorts) and silly story.

Those two are things I already expected to NOT be in Vanquish, and everything else (Gameplay, graphics, how badass it is.) is solid, so, yeah.

The demo wasn't that exciting or fun.

Short game with no multiplayer or co op makes it a hard sell for $60 and that's why some retailers overseas are cutting prices even before the game releases

That is only this generation, and even then, there are still people that don't mind multiplayer or co-op, when a game offers you something more.

I mean, look at Sin and Punishment 2, as well as other Racing games out there, hell, look at Sonic 4 (Despite the flaws it has...) and you find that there are alot of people who like to go hunt down for scores and such.

Yes, it is a tough sell to some gamers, but others simply know what they're gonna get and will enjoy it because of that. Myself included.

Also, the Demo was actually pretty awesome if you liked it. For me, it was probably the most awesome 7 minutes I've spent on a Third Person Shooter, and I just replayed it for completion times over and over and over. Although that's just me, and that's why I am going to love Vanquish.

Sure its a great game. I'll pick it up when its cheaper and maybe some dlc was released for it. I'm only buying a game day one from now on if its AAA title or one of my franchise favs. Out of all the reviews I'm reading a 7 hour campaign is what seems to come up and that just doesn't justify a full game purchase for me. I hope you all enjoy it though, looks and plays great from what I seen of the demo.

Once the Redbox near me gets this, I will rent it since its short and I could beat it in a day
