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."
