Review: Vanquish (Crush! Frag! Destroy!)

CFD!'s Rob Rich goes headlong into Platinum Games' over-the-top action shooter:

"Where to begin…

"The SC-01Providence space colony has been hijacked by the Russian Star, an extremist faction bent on using the colony’s microwave energy array to fry their enemies unless they surrender unconditionally. Unwilling to give in to their demands, the President of the United States sends hundreds of thousands of soldiers off to their deaths in a desperate attempt to take the colony back. Lucky for her, Sam Gideon (DARPA researcher extraordinaire) is on the case. And lucky for Sam, he was on the one ship that managed to make it through the Russian defenses in (almost) one piece.

"Sound like the start to a cheesy action movie? You betcha." (PS3, Vanquish, Xbox 360) -

I so wish they'd release some bonus DLC missions or something. This game was so much fun.

It was definitely interesting, what little I played of it. I'll have to come back to it again some other time. Next year, probably.

This is the sleeper game of 2010 thats for sure. How come there isn't more press about this?

I was glad to see that the reviewer understood the game's outrageously campy sense of humor, and I also immediately thought of Epic's Gears and UT with the hypermacho dialogue. LOL. So much fun. I loved Vanquish.

Exactly. After watching a few minutes of cutscenes it's hard to imagine they made it that ridiculous by mistake. It's like a love letter to all things campy sci-fi.
