“…players looking for a highly entertaining shooter should look no further. Vanquish will keep you on the edge of your multi-thruster booster seat.” 8.5/10 – IGN
The story takes place on a vast space station in a near future world where nations war over the planet’s remaining energy resources. Against this backdrop, players take the role of Sam Gideon, a government agent kitted out with a futuristic battle suit. A versatile fighter with a huge arsenal of weaponry at his disposal, Sam also has an array of martial arts skills that he can use to take down his robot enemies.
Review by IGN
"…Vanquish is a stylish, spectacular looking game with great gunplay and some stunning set pieces. Although the game's story and character development pale in comparison to the action, I had a great time with Vanquish from the in-game tutorial all the way to the ending credits. Even though Mikami's latest creation is difficult at times, players looking for a highly entertaining shooter should look no further. Vanquish will keep you on the edge of your multi-thruster booster seat.
IGN RATINGS FOR VANQUISH (PS3)
Vanquish has an impressive level of polish. The story and character development, however, aren't engaging.
Vanquish is a chaotic, detailed spectacle of bullets and booster rockets. Organic sections are less impressive than the inorganic settings, but overall this game looks awesome.
The music in Vanquish is a fitting electronic affair. There are a surprising number of language tracks here, including Japanese, French and Italian, along with solid English performances.
Enjoyable gunplay mixed with weapon power-ups, arcade-style scoring and an insanely fast boosting mechanic to traverse levels in a flash. Marvelous action set pieces.
7.5 Lasting Appeal
The campaign will only take six to seven hours to complete. Fortunately there are challenge stages to fight waves of enemies in a focused battle scenario, but Vanquish could have lasted a bit longer.
