Ripten Review: Vanquish (Xbox 360)

Vanquish. What is it? Well, for starters it’s a brand new IP by Sega, Platinum Games, and Shinji Mikami, creator of the Resident Evil franchise. It’s a fast paced futuristic third person shooter comprised of 29 missions spread across 5 unique chapters. If Vanquish was an adult beverage, it would be made from three parts Metal Gear, two parts Gears of War, a dash of Terminator, and a smidgen of RoboCop. Oh, and it would run you sixty bucks a glass.

The story is too old to be commented.

Shinji Mikami needs to make more games like this!! Forget Resident Evil, that got old years ago.

Dodge roll and slide boosting ftw!! Not sure if this is a buy, but its a must rent. I beat it in 7 hours. But I'm not Japanese :-p

If it had some co-op or multi it would be worth $60 easy.

I played the demo and thought the game was really cool, but a short campaign offering no sort of co-op or multiplayer is a little disappointing. To many good games coming out real soon to drop $60 on a game that will last a few days to a week at most.

Dislik! This is alright but it wears out quickly. More (good) Resident Evil plox. :D

I don't agree that a game lasting under 8 Hours with no multiplayer or Co-Op has the same lasting appeal as those that do.

AMAZING FREAKING games..... If it had couch coop it would be a total buy... it is def a rental though.... i loved the game.

It's a shame splitscreen co-op is getting rarer these days.

Kingdom Come2857d ago

In many circumstances helps Identify the determined and dedicated developers this generation, with mainly the large devs supplying both Singleplayer Campaign, Splitscreen Co-Op, Online Co-Op, Multiplayer (Co-op and competitive).

Needs some co-op. I'm getting bored of running through these types of games by myself. I need more stuff to play with my friends.

kevco332857d ago

It would be difficult to make co-op work in any real fashion in Vanquish I would imagine - that is, beyond a Fable II-esque manner.

Stunt2857d ago

Nice review. I'll probably pick this up.

Kreyg2857d ago

Well, that swayed me towards at least renting it. I'd like to buy it, I'm just broke this week.
