David from BagoGames writes: Vanquish doesn’t fuck around. It’s loud, bombastic, and relentless. If you get caught in the crossfire, you’re dead. Vanquish is a difficult game. It forces players to forget their preconceived notions of how modern third-person shooters should play. You’ll see cover littered around, but this is NOT a “stop and pop” experience. As a confident action game, it encourages momentum-driven player expression. Once the initial awkwardness sets in, it’s up to the player to kill things as efficiently and stylishly as possible.
