Sonic the Space Marine.

Chris Thrasher, Amazon

  • Summary: I love Platinum games. Virtually all of them. This game.....eeeh... It's not bad. But...it's not great. If you loved Gears of War, then I'm betting you'll like this one a lot as well. Unfortunately, it just sort of feels like a faster paced 3rd person shooter. Which I've never really been a fan of aside from RE4 which was action horror. But for 20 bucks. It's worth it. It simply didn't blow me out of the water as I expected it to.

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.

Cheesy but fun. 4 for fun, 3.5 overall.

  • Summary: Entertaining third person shooter. It seems almost outdated to me & less realistic than I'm used to. Sort of like playing in an older action Saturday morning cartoon if that makes any sense. Can't call it a story, more like less than stellar, corny sci fi episodes w/ fun shooting interaction which is what saves the game from being a disaster. Something is missing for me but don't let that discourage u from trying.

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

  • 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
18 March 2011
  • 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.
