Vanquish Review (PlanetXbox360)

From the feature review:

"There are loads of games that come out that would be considered “over the top.” Obviously those games have never heard of Vanquish. Vanquish is a 3rd-person shooter lovingly crafted by the notorious Platinum Games who delivered Bayonetta earlier this year. While Vanquish is a shooter in the likes of Gears of War with a great cover system, burly men with intimidating voices and a hail of bullets, it strays from the typical conventions of any other shooter of its kind. The star of this bullet-driven narrative is Sam Gideon, a DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) solider, equipped with the new suit of armor known as the ARS or Augmented Reaction Suit."

Really? If an opinion can't be quantified.

How is it done? and how are you .1 off?

King-Leonidas3288d ago

8.9? Why don't they just give it a 9???

Sarcasm3287d ago

Same thing came to mind. How does anyone justify an 8.9 over a 9.

8.9... that's funny. The demo was pretty entertaining. Voice acting however, was horrible.

In other funny news, it's funny how this game mentions the main character as a DARPA soldier. What's even funnier, is that I work at DARPA. There are no soldiers here.

Nothing pisses me off more than a "calm down" when its completly unneccesary. What, are you 12?

Having spent a lot of my gaming time with mech/robots so this will be a purchase for me, loved the demo...

Pretty Good review. I'll mostly pick this up when the price goes down.

Same here.. It's a nice game, I'm sure.. But I'm in no rush to play it. :)

"Vanquish takes almost every exciting component from our favorite 3rd-person shooters and combines them into a hell of a good time. While the campaign leans a bit towards the short side, it has a high replay value, with unlockable difficulties that will test your skills with the features of the ARS. Sam Gideon leads an enjoyable, yet highly predictable dash through the narrative, with ludicrous cutscenes that are pure, unadulterated fun. If you whatsoever appreciate the work of Platinum Games, run and pick up Vanquish this next Tuesday, my face is still sore from the kickass-induced grin I was wearing during the entirety of my playthrough."

Day 1 for me :-)

UltimaEnder3288d ago

That paragraph did it for me also!

Mikami without Capcom is like Laurel without Hardy.

Neckbear3288d ago

It's the other way around. Capcom let Clover, AKA Platinum go, and now look at them.
