Platinum Game's Vanquish is a sci-fi shooter for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, directed by Shinji Mikami - the creator of the Resident Evil series. Vanquish sets a new mold for third person cover based gaming. Frantic and uncompromisingly fast, it is more a gaming love child of Gears of War and Bayonetta with a sci-fi flair than your average whack-a-mole shooter. Platinum Games has created a visually impressive and unique experience that sets itself apart from the typical shooter. The action shooter genre is officially born.
