A decent game that is surprisingly good, but don't spend lots of $

Decent game, the fast paced action was really cool along with some nice additions to regular shooter games. There are a few interesting enemies but for the most part you will get large amounts of the same bad guys. The story is forgettable and kinda cliche, and the backgrounds (while nice) do feel repetitive. A good game if you are looking to pass time in between major releases.Read full review...

Lame story and characters, but 10x better than Gears of War.

Oh boy...where to begin? Vanquish is a fast-paced, action-packed (J)RPG that will keep your attention and keep you on your toes with its impressive visuals and non-stop storm of bullets that will undoubtedly be raining down upon you.

If you're looking for a meaningful character development and growth, or a deep and compelling story...keep looking, as Vanquish offers very little substance when it comes to those qualities.

Vanquish is a game that can't decide what it wants to be. With gritty characters that sound like they downed a bowl of gravel for breakfast like those in American Shooters (Gears of War, Killzone, etc.), but stylish graphics and gameplay reminiscent of Viewtiful Joe, Bayonetta, and Devil May Cry, Vanquish is the awkward middle child that tries to bridge the gap.

And while it fails and falters in perhaps the more meaningful ways, the gameplay is rich and immersive. In fact, the only reason I gave it 4 instead of three stars is because I honestly can't get enough of the slide n' shoot, time-slowing action. And neither will you.

Cheap, cheesy, visually great, Michael Bay storyline...entertaining crap.

Its an old school kind of game in its basic simplicity. Thats its strenght as well as its weakness. Plot and story line are Michael Bay bad, so its hard to really get involved in the game or to find it adictive. On the other hand pase is so fast that you dont really have much time to think to much, its that kind of game, like renting a movie at the end of a hard stressfull weak....you just dont want to watch a david lynch movie...unsubstantial...shallow...but visually stunning and even if at times "cheesebally" entertaining to play once...wont really be touching it again...Read full review...

Gears of war, but faster - much faster!

Good: tight controls and gameplay, strong graphics and visual design, excellent sound, a lot of fun!

Bad: a counter-intuitive weapon upgrading system, a silly story, very little replay value unless you're simply playing to get a higher score.

I would rent this or buy it used then regift it or sell it on ebay. It's a blast for about 6 hours, but that's a bit short in my opinion and not worth paying retail.

A short game, but one of the most fun you can get in a game

A fast and chaotic over-the-shoulder third-person shooting game.

First the bad:

- The main game is short: at about 5 hours for most people.
- Cheesy plot and script: typical sci-fi nonsense; dialogue can be down-right ridiculous at times.
- No multiplayer mode:
The Good:

- High Octane action: Make no mistake, this game all the action sequences typical of a Japanese Anime during cut scenes as well as game play.
- Smooth control mechanics: the game character handles pretty much the way you ask him to.
- Excellent graphics: despite all the stuff that can happen on the screen at once, I have not experienced any drop in framerate or screen tearing while playing on a 60Hz TV; The environments look beautiful and motion effects ate stunning

...One more thing to consider: Although the main game is short there is a leaderboard for best score upon completing a playthrough. There are also extremely difficult challenge trials (in which the player most defeat a certain number of enemies as quickly as possible) that can extend gameplay to another few more hours also coupled with leaderboards for each trial.

Best Game ever

I bought this Product for son we had hours of fun playing it, It was the best game we ever play.The story of VANQUISH™ is set in the near future. Russia and the United States are vying for ownership of the world’s fast-depleting energy resources and the US has constructed a space station in order to harness energy from the sun. Russian forces capture this space station and divert its harvested solar energy into a blast wave that destroys San Francisco, aiming to force the US into a total and unconditional surrender. In response, the US tasks its armed forces with recapturing the space station before the Russians can annihilate their next target –New York.Read full review...

Vanquish

This game is so fast there may be times when you don't know what happening. But don't be shied away this game is very fun. If you played either of the uncharted games than you already know how to play this game it's just a matter of relearning what buttons do what but even that you get help with on screen and in the game. Along with a story that's not too deep and has the right amount of twists, you'll be saying "I hope there's sequel" before the final boss fight. And to conclude "Ihope there's a sequel!"Read full review...

Awesome! Get it!

This game is great! It can get a bit frantic at times especially on the harder difficulties. The level design feels amazing and believable. Large scale boss battles were fun to play and the gameplay itself is spot on. Maybe the only thing i didn't like about this game was the upgrade system. It's hardly noticeable unless you consciously want to upgrade your weapons. I'd recommend this to anyone into sci fi, action, or something that's just stylish and fun. :)Read full review...
