Vanquish

3 January 2012
  • Excerpt: With Vanquish developers Platinum Games have taken a standard macho third person cover shooter and injected it full of Japanese flamboyance and panache. Instead of shooting waves of mindless grunts in a grey/brownish landscape, you are confronted with waves of laser-death spewing robots in a cacophony of noise and colour. Fights are fast and intense, requiring you to move rapidly around the battlefield by sliding along the ground in your jet powered suit.

  • Conclusion: "Il reste peut-être des détails que je n'ai pas envie d'évoquer, mais ce qu'on doit retenir en priorité de tout ça, c'est que nous avons tous vécu une aventure pas très originale certes, mais calibrée de sorte que chacun en a pris plein la gu.... toutes les dix minutes. A la lecture de mon récit, vous n'avez sans doute pas autant vibré que moi sur le champ de bataille, alors si vous me laissez vous donner un dernier conseil, c'est de tenter le coup au moins une fois si...
  • Pros: On s'y croit !, Un rythme qui ne faiblit pas, Impeccable d'un point de vue technique, Un ton adulte pas déplaisant, Crédits originaux, Eprouvant et...
  • Cons: ... éprouvant, Un décor qui sent le vu et revu, Des ennemis ne se renouvelant pas ?, On ne peut pas marcher

  • Summary: Platinum Games is a studio to admire. Its titles have never been huge sales successes, but the developer's status as a critical darling and a maker of great games, going right back to its Clover Studios roots, cannot be denied.

  • Conclusion: That's the core of this amazing experience. While other developers pursue more realistic experiences, Platinum never loses sight that it's making a videogame. And that's what Vanquish is - a pure, unadulterated ride that's packed with enjoyment and leaves you wanting more. It's the nearest embodiment of “Hell Yeah!” or “Come Get Some!” you’re ever likely to play.

Review: Vanquish (Xbox 360, PS3)

Gamer 2.0
29 November 2010
  • Conclusion: Vanquish is a game that both old-school and current gamers can appreciate.  While the game is fairly linear, which isn’t surprising since it’s a shooter for the most part, it features enough challenge and flair to keep the game fresh and interesting.  Its atmosphere is a tribute to old-school gaming because of all the action happening at once.

Vanquish Review

  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Despite the fact that I have never been a big fan of the Resident Evil series personally, there is no denying that Shinji Mikami is a video gaming heavy weight. His work with Capcom over the years has yielded some outstanding results. Vanquish is his first game after the demise of Clover studios and as an ‘external member’ of Platinum Games.

  • Conclusion: Vanquish is one of those experiences where you simply don’t want to put the controller down until you’re finished with the campaign. Clocking in at around 6 to 8 hours the experience within Vanquish is relatively short, though during those 6 to 8 hours, you are on the thrill ride of your life.

Vanquish (PS3, 360) Review

411mania.com
13 November 2010
  • Summary: Vanquish isn’t for everyone, but it is one of the most stylish and best looking games I’ve played all year. The action is fast and frantic and unlike anything else I’ve played. Despite the ridiculous speed that would even have Sonic jealous, the cover system works perfectly. The great gameplay manages to cover up what is a bare-bones story that does little more than explain what’s happening.
