What Gamespot Users have to say about Vanquish

    Short but sweet a game that really defies the word action.

    Rated on February 22, 2012 by chocolate1325

    Vanquish was released in the 4th quarter of 2010 and was sort of unnoticed because of all the big retail games like Halo Reach, Assassins Creed Brotherhood and of course Call of Duty Black Ops. It was...

    Fun game while it lasts

    This is a fun sci-fi shooter. The mechanics are well polished, aiming is easy, movement is fluid and fun. You've even got a little jet pack on the back of your armored suit that lets you zip about t...

    Platinum Games: Oh yeah, almost forgot, we totally need to tack on a story to all this awesome action we got going on

    I would only recommend Vanquish for hardcore fans of the shooter genre. If you value character development or anything that is remotely plot driven, steer far away from this game. Vanquish is all abou...

    Although it's a little short, Vanquish is a blast to play.

    Rated on August 01, 2012 by Demonjoe93

    Vanquish isn't your average everyday third-person shooter. Unlike many shooters on the market this game actually separates itself. Because of how different it is, Vanquish is a very fun game to play. ...

    Fantastic and satisfying game for any fan of shooters, but could be better in terms of narrative.

    The basic story of Vanquish revolves around the Earth becoming overpopulated and mankind is pushed to the brink of primitive wars in response to natural resources becoming scarce. America develops a ...

    An enjoyable, brain-dead shooter.

    Rated on February 03, 2013 by Shawn_Watson

    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 lik...
