Play.tm: "You don't often find the term OTT being used in a positive light, which is why we must assure you that when we say Vanquish is awe-inspiratingly OTT, there is no oxymoron present. The box-art for Vanquish should really have the words 'Big Guns! Big Explosions! Big Action!' plastered all over it, given how extreme this hot-footed blaster constantly is. Room to breathe? Who needs that when you've got guns that build themselves into your hands and sliding action that makes your average Premier League football tackle look like two kittens fighting."
