    I'm sorry I didn't enjoy this game one little bit. This is like a really pointless hack n slash game. Going around shooting the same robots, over and over and over and over and over again. And the so called bosses are the same over and over and over and over again it gets very boring, very quickly. There is no customisation to either weapons or suit (increasing mag size is a joke).

I've almost completed it but its taken every ounce of my being to get this far; for me its like going to the dentist to have a tooth taken out but have to endure the pain without local anaesthetic. I respect that some people enjoyed it but didn't. Expand

    It's Gears of War with Robots, Bullet Time, and Metal Gear Rising QTE's

    Feels a bit like Warhammer 40K Space Marine too, whereas you're walking around some giant area waiting for another horde of bots to show up or be airdropped in for you to shoot And of course, there's the pop up shooting gallery that makes up most of the game, where either you glue yourself beneath some barricade

    Vanquish manages in many ways to be quite literally awesome though; from the bombastic battles you partake in, through its outstanding technical performance, brilliantly ridiculous cutscenes and superb twists on an established genre.

    If you're still itching to waste a few hours on Vanquish, here's some advice: wait until the inevitable price reduction.
  3. There's really been nothing else quite like it this generation, which makes comparison difficult, and its one misstep is the fact that its only online component is a paltry ranking system. In truth, having multiplayer inside the chaotic sphere of Vanquish would have made Mikami's latest baby the prodigal son of third-person shooters. There's always next time though. [December 2010 p78]
