Decent but forgettable shooter

Steve Sterling, Amazon

  • Summary: Vanquish has nice graphics and solid controls, but a very generic story and a moderate fun-factor. Good for a rental, but easily forgotten afterwards.

Disappointed. It's okay though.

  • Summary: I heard good things about this game, but wouldn't say I had too high hopes. I was expecting a good game, but what I got was your typical overly buffed characters with zero depth, in the veins of Killzone (probably Gears of War as well). And that hurts the story in a major way. It might be one big parody, but even then, it's not funny. It's just dumb. :P Anyways, who gives a damn about story, it's all about the gameplay right? Well, to me the mechanics are okay at best.

The very definition of superficial

  • Summary: Vanquish is the very definition of superficial. It is a game that can be played in short bursts with little-to-no commitment. I never once felt invested in the story or the stats. This might sound like a bad thing, but if you're the kind of person who likes multi-tasking then Vanquish can be played while doing the housework.

Vanquish boredom?

Jeff Franklin, amazon.co.uk
10 September 2012
  • Summary: Platinum Games are currently the darlings of the action scene... well they have received universal acclaim for two of their recent offerings Bayonetta and Vanquish. Unfortunately I cannot see why these titles are so highly regarded, but to each their own. Vanquish is a twist on the third person shooter with the addition of the ability to whizz across the screen for limited bursts.

"Pretty Average Game"

Stephen, Mighty Ape

  • Summary: I know this game got high as reviews from most people, but I found it quite lame. It was too fast paced which the makers were obviously trying to do, but you missed out on how to play and all the fun. Also if you're after a good story line its not the game for you. But it is easy so possibly good for children, even though its R13.

  • Summary: Be warned its very difficult. If you like games where you repeatedly die and have to endlessly repeat boss battles then this is for you. I found it very boring very quickly due to this.

Fast Action, YES. Replay..nah

Jens Stimpel "Sev", amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: This game is for you who does not need any deep story (even if it try to) and just want action head on. For what Vanquish does right is to giver you some fast kick ass action and a good time (1 time that is). When you have finish the game once you are not gonna replay it again any time soon. Characters and the plot is not the big thing here and it does not have to, but you really never give a damn about any of it because it's forgettable and that is a shame.

Entertaining......but how long for?

M. Vallis, amazon.co.uk
15 November 2010
  • Summary: I bought this as a game I was waiting to come out had once again been delayed (*cough* GT5) and I wanted something to fill the time. Saw this, it had good reviews and for a new game it had a reasonable price tag to boot. In terms of actually playing the game the gameplay was well paced, great fun and full of explosions, great hulking beasts to kill etc etc....which is great! Apart fom the odd cheesy bits like rocketing along the floor... ..

passable

Julian Bristol, amazon.co.uk
22 October 2010
  • Summary: was eagerly awaiting this game to be released since it had a lot of publicity and hype, but i gotta say its just ok not amazing. first off from the title screen onwards you notice that the games graphics look like ps2 standard. the main character is a very unlikeable solid snake wannabe and the story is not that interesting.there is a long action cut scene at the beginning that i wished they let me play instead of just watching it.
