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.

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.
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.
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: Well.A bit dissapointed…If you like fast pace third person shooter
definitely BUY THIS GAME…If you re a story core gamer DONT BUY THIS GAME..The
story is very bad..It doesnt have a character development but the gameplay is so
fast pace make you forget the story and just enjoy!!
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.
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... ..
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.
