Summary: Platinum is a developer that has made some pretty good games... and they did really well with Vanquish. It's fast.. 3rd person shooter based in the future... and you'll see from other reviews...generally everyone loves it! Not much else to add.. if you're looking for a good game this is one of them!
Summary: Truly one of the most underappreciated games of the last generation. The fast-paced combat is unique and while the game is shorter than I would've liked, this also helps it to remain interesting and not drag on.
A decent game that is surprisingly good, but don't spend lots of $

Summary: 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.
Summary: Let me preface this by saying that I'm not a huge fan of consoles. I'm more of a PC gamer. This game is one of the exceptions. Fast paced, challenging (depending on the difficulty of course), and fun. The QTE (Quick-time events) in this game should be the benchmark for all QTEs. They're not long and laborious or tedious and wearisome. They're actually pretty awesome and satisfying.
Summary: People who aren't used to playing fast-paced action games will DEFINETELY get lost playing Vanquish. For everyone else who can't get enough action, it's paradise. Good control response, fluid animations, and bullet rains make Vanquish a must-have for third-person shooter lovers.
