Vanquish, the latest masterpiece from Shinji Mikami (the creator of the Resident Evil franchise) gets a perfect score.
Platinum games is the best developer in the industry right now.
i would buy it if it had multiplayer...unfortunately, it doesnt
Should every game have a multiplayer? No. I played Bayonetta for over 60 hours and I'm not tired of it. Platinum games create the most enjoyable games and I'm pretty sure that Vanquish will have a high replay value.
The campaign looks awesome but no multiplayer makes this just a rental.
I hate this new generation of "gamer" that won't even give a game the time of day unless it has multiplayer. Stop being so eff'ing self entitled, and support good, solid games like this one!
I agree. If it had MP I would probably buy it too. There are just too many other games coming out that I will get more time played per dollar out of.
What's hilarious is how these retards yell NO MULTIPLAYER HURR ITS A GOOD GAEM BUT GOD HARD 2 HARD 4 ME ND I WONT B ABLE 2 BEAT IT SO RENTAL LOL God. People, I've replayed THE GODDAMN DEMO trying to get the best scores and time possible. It might not be some people's thing (Replaying something for difficulty or hunting down scores) but I, myself, love the concept and how it works out. Also, I've never been a multiplayer guy for things aside from SplitScreen, Racers and Fighters.
ill support it when it comes down in price.
Every game does not need to have multiplayer, but this is a shooter. There is really no better genre for competitive multiplayer. I'll be buying it though, the demo was too good for me to ignore this game tbh.
I agree. With no MP this is just a weekend rental. I bet the game's not even 7 hours long and $60 for a game I will only play for 3 days max? Last gen most games were at least 15-20 hours long and their price was lower too. 50vs60. And then there's the fact that there are so many other games that I have yet to play and that are much more longer.
The game doesn't have it. Its not exactly some story-strong title. Its a shooter with cover. Good looking game, but the demo suggests its fast/quicksnap gameplay. Online would only be a natural assumption with something like this. After playing the demo. Its not a rental, not even buying it. Just seemed like a good engine, but it appears to be just another shooter.
its a rental for me, no doubt. i cant believe people will buy this, and waste 65 bucks for a game that will give u a days worth of story telling...with a 5 day rental, that leaves another 4 days to just screw around and replay, and get collectibles and trophys...other then that, i see alot of people returning or trading in the game after a month period, when real 65 dollar purchases start rolling out...i mean comeon...i dont care how much you disagree, it doesnt make you any less wrong :/
I couldn't tell by the demo.
I didn't mean I only buy games with multiplayer. I spend most of my time playing single player. Even if this game had multiplayer I still wouldn't buy it because I have other games on my radar.
really no multiplayer im interested then
don't see where the hate is coming from... I thought the demo was AWESOME,not even kidding probably going to be one of the best single player games this year
Games that DON'T need multiplayer: inFamous inFamous 2 Uncharted Uncharted 2 God of War (1,2,3) KillZone 2 KillZone 3 Heavy Rain Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Dead Space (1,2) Red Dead Redemption GTA (1,2,3,VC,SA,4) etc, etc While some of those game would benefit from multiplayer (even just in co-op fashion), none of them rely on it. Games that DO need multiplayer: Call of Duty (3+) Modern Warfare (all) Halo (1,2,3,ODST,Reach) Do you see a pattern here? I can tell which system someone prefers by whether or not they judge a game by whether or not that game has multiplayer.
Day 1 buy
"Platinum games is the best developer in the industry right now." Wow. Just wow.
hmm they're not even in my top ten lol.
And even funnier: "one of the best games this gen"
It might be to him. Its his opinion after all not yours or mine. I might just think Madden 11 is the best of this gen. Am i right? If its my opinion i cant be wrong, if its my perception then its reality in my eyes.
Its his opinion but all I did was state my as did these other guys, no one called him an idiot or attacked him in anyway just countered his opinion with another whats wrong with that? also he got 14 agrees and 27 disagrees(from this post) so that shows some think like him while others don't, its not like he got reported or people tried taking his bubbles(at least I hope not). If you feel offended or hurt when people reply to your posts then don't post anything.
I agree with you they are very underrated and they deliver all the time. The disagrees with you are half Retarded so dont mind them.
If it is anything like the demo then no thank you.
it will probably be better than Uncharted but i personally think it will fail in comparison the Gears of war greatnesss
No one cares what you "personally think". 1 bubble validates that
why bother... seriously? peace
i hated the demo, i dont see why this game is getting so much attention, it reminded me of a cross between gears and lost planet,but with awful techno music, im sure my ears were bleeding after the soundtrack and terrible voice acting.
@ disagrees Wow, alot of people hate everything good about PS2 era Japanese games.
well, I don't know if it is "the most important cover shooter in ages" and I couldn't care less but it sure is extremely fun, I really can't tell how many times I have played the demo, I'll be getting it day 1.
I can really see how appealin Vanquish is 2 sum but its not 4me, i can seriously apreaciate how insane the game looks its just not 4-me, not summin id buy, its too fast paced, i smoke too much pot so my eyes r like a china mans they wouldnt b able 2 keep up
Maybe you should easy up on the pot bro. Don't want things to get so bad that you won't be able to see upcoming beauties like The Last Guardian and Uncharted 3 in their full glory do you?
that doesn't even have blind fire? Um okay?
Duh. Although holding it gets you more prescicion and you can deal more damage with simple headshots (Wich, I found out, are extremedly useful to kill enemies fast) Think about it like if the "Aim" button was more of a Zoom.
is how much style its got ... not a lot of developers got style ... its got style.. fun ... and that appealing look to it .. yes i care about these little things ... im sorry this game doesnt have multiplayer cause it doesnt f*ing need it.. go play COD MOH BC2 and all the endless multiplayer games to choose from
Sorry but sliding around like a fvcking retard isn't style. This is just another adrenaline fueled shooter with just decent graphics. And I am not a fan of having mp in every game but a shooter should have some form of it. I not buying it because the demo was mighty repetitive and reminded me too much of Lost Planet series with the glowing joints telling me where to shoot. Besides no one is talking about the story, cause there isn't a good one, which is mandatory in my eyes. That's why I picked up Castlevania and Enslaved instead.
I can't wait to play it! It's one of the few games I'm paying for at launch this year.
Vanquish looks fresh and unique. Also it seems like it's one of the games that are "easy to learn, hard to master" which is always great.
... What's with all this no multiplayer crap ^ you guys are saying above you won't buy it just because there is no multiplayer, r u kidding? Some of the best games this Generation don't have multiplayer Uncharted 1, Assassins Creed 1 and 2 some of my favorite games this generation, I love them, and they have no multiplayer. Well I'm not like that I will buy Vanquish because its a fun game, the demo was ridiclously awesome
I know many people who pick up Call of Duty, Battlefield, Killzone, etc. who never even touch the single-player. Sad, isn't it? I usually prefer single-player to multi-player anyway. If I do multi-player, I'd much rather do split-screen offline too. I wish they would keep that feature in games. :( Twisted Metal will have it though...so, I'm good. :)
SexyPrawns that is sad and it makes me frown :( edit: I also prefer single player to multiplayer most of the time, anyway it really depends on the game
Sad? That nobody played those mediocre campaigns? (with the exception of Killzone 2 which did have a good campaign, even though the story wasn't that good) Seriously, you actually bought a Call of Duty and Battlefield game primarily for the single player?
Also, in the title, you have the word "the" twice in a row, in the quotes
Ugh. You people that won't buy a great game just because it doesn't have multiplayer are idiots. Just go back to playing Modern Warfare, you sheep.
I wasn't THAT impressed by the demo. Mostly because the overheat system annoyed the hell out of me and having to maually pick up ammo in the middle of an intense firefignt was distracting (as well as dangerous). And who in the world uses blind-fire?
No thanks, I'll just stick to Gears of War.
I think you're confused... We're talking about Vanquish, not Quantum Theory
Cant wait I acually love it when dev focus on the singleplayer part because that should be the focus lol. It means the campaign will be longer because it needs to hold up alone. I dont care for multi it was ok as an afterthought or addition to games but now dev seem happy to put out games with 4 hour campaigns because it has deathmatches exc. I would prefer it an adition like uncharted 2 not the main focus. Its good with games like halo because its the whole package but some dev use it as an excuse to half ass it.
its so amazing its a great game -_- the pacing is just right no multiplayer does kinda hurt my feelings but only because this game has such a epic single player that if this was online my god it be amazing
funny how when gow3 and infamous 2 were showed people yell"where's MP", but when it comes to this game which a mp would only be logical those same people say " not all games need mp"
That's a pretty funny proclamation. How long have cover shooters been around, now? Ages?
That titles already owned by Gears.
and you can do speed runs
Definitely a worthy title, but not at full price...
I'll get it after I get GT5, New Vegas, Black Ops.
"sigh" of only it had multiplayer. than i wouldnt have to think about buying it, it would already be in my system.
i want this game, but i'll wait till the price drop. it's just not polished enough to warrant the $60 price tag.
No golden guns. No chainsaw. No lack of AI. No homoerotic appeal. Guess people will stick to Gears of Wars franchise.
looks pretty good
I'm probably going to get assaulted by disagrees, but i didn't care for vanquish at all when i played it. The story had no depth, and it felt very arcady. Character animations were iffy, and the gameplay felt repetitive.
lol obviously dont know how to play
Only "Shooter" I'd play this Gen. I love when you choose a gun, is instantly transforms into the other weapon. I also love how your character is so "agile" just amazing. The suits are cool. I mean, I actually feel "cool" running around with this guy and shooting down monsters. The suit + weapons remind me of the 90s movie "LOST IN SPACE"
For everyone complaining about no multiplayer: How the FUCK can this even have a multiplayer?! Explain to me how THAT can work? Take out all of the ridiculousness, and you'll just have another unremarkable third person shooter. If it had multiplayer, instead of being satisfied, people would be comparing it to Gears and saying how that pwns Vanquish. The devs went the smart direction and didn't waste time on a mode that people will eventually forget because of the other "superior" games on the market. Jesus Christ people. This is not a Gears or even a *shudder* Halo ripoff. It's a fresh, intense new experience that everybody should try. I did. And I loved it.
In ages? Since gears of War maybe? Is that ages already? Look, i liked the demo, the game looks and plays good but let's not make it what it isn't...
I LOVED the demo. The Boss that was fought in this DEMO is better than 80% of modern games' Final Bosses. I think it is about time a shooter have some real action and formidable opponents. I am looking forward to this game, with or without multiplayer. There is MOH and COD for that.
