Vanquish Review - PlayStation LifeStyle

Vanquish isn’t perfect. It has story problems, it’s not as long as it could be, and there is no multiplayer to speak of. The combat, mechanics and action are so innovative, and are done so well it’s easily one of the best games to grace consoles this year. The action in Mikami-san’s title plays out like a cross between John Woo’s A Better Tomorrow, Paul Verhoeven’s Robocop and Kazuaki Kiriya’s Casshern all rolled in to one. The new genre of Japan-style action games with Western-style shooting has been born; if you’re a fan of third-person shooters, over the top action, and enjoy a good challenge Vanquish is an excellent fit.

I cant really understand some of the negative reviews, they complain about repetitiveness but then score repetitive games like COD and GTA all high scores. i'm in love with this. :-)

The only negative reviews are from the Japan-hating Xplay, the inconsequential GamePro and the frothing mad troll over at Destructoid (who's reviews Gamerankings won't add to the final tally). All in all, Vanquish's critical response has been fine, with the major sites lavishing praise with only a few dissenting voices that are mad because Geow just got punted to the curve by a booster kick to the balls.

Oh you love it now....just wait until the final boss on hard!
Kidding aside, this game destroys all!!!!

Sooo good!

Um, the final boss on hard is nothing compared to challenge 6.

Hopefully in Vanquish 2 they'll make the campaign longer and add multiplayer.

but Multiplayer? no need.

THe game has been getting a very good reception. I have no doubt there will be a sequel, and it could be a very improved sequel. My guess is that Mikami was focused entirely on the gameplay, since this is what makes the game great and fresh, so they can now focus on the details and multiplayer for the second game.
