SPOnG: "I'll be honest, I was worried when I played the Vanquish demo that shooting around the floor using ass thrusters might prove too unruly and uncontrollable a gimmick to hang a game on. Fortunately, it turns out I was wrong. Not that ass thrust is all Vanquish has going for it, but that is the main unique selling point if we're being honest. But... maybe we should back up a bit, eh?
Vanquish is not, in fact, the stain-removal product it sounds like. It's a third-person future shooter set in space, courtesy of the studio behind Bayonetta – Platinum. It treats the shoot-'em-up genre in much the same way Bayonetta treats the brawler genre – with a great big grin on its face."
