7.0Good

For a game I had never even heard of (prior to receiving it for free, via Playstation Plus), It's actually pretty sweet. Repetitive, though.

9.5Classic!

Who said the Japanese can't do shooters? Seriously, this one awesome, super fun game. I don't care if you're a shooter nut or not, if you want to play a short yet rewarding and ridiculously fun game with some epic old-school boss fights, this is one you must try! As I said, it's really short (5-6 hours, maybe) but it's bursting with action and fireworks. Perhaps Platinum Games' finest moment.

9.0Fantastic

This is how 3rd person shooters SHOULD play. Stand aside Gears of War we got us a badass over here. Vanquish is a fast paced TPS based on the ability to SLIDE FOREVER and slowdown time. You can enter bullettime while sliding, in midair, or after a dodge. Doing most actions will force your character to overheat. The game is short, but the arcade-y score system will keep you coming back again and again and again.

8.0Great

Vanquish is a pure adrenalin rush. It's an extremely fast paced 3rd person shooter from Japan. What makes the gameplay unique is that you have jet boosters on your legs which you use to power slide across the battlefield to then melee enemies, get a better angle, avoid explosions, (etc). YOu will use this power constantly but it's a blast to use. There is only a single player mode (7hrs or so) and some trial modes so no multiplayer or co op or anything like that. It's worth trying out just seeing how differently a western 3rd person shooter is made and an eastern 3rd person shooter.

9.5Classic!

The best 3rd person shooter ever, beats the crap out of games like Gears of War & Uncharted where it actually counts, gameplay.

9.0Fantastic

Fast, Fluid, Frantic, and Fantastic! The freshest new shooter that has a style and class all it's own. Even with the typical protagonist Sam and his Gatling-gun wielding friend as the main story driving tension the characters are likeable and fit in perfectly with the over the top action style!

9.0Fantastic

Platinum Games strikes again! In similar fashion to Bayonetta being a perfected revision of the Devil May Cry formula, Vanquish is a perfection of the Gears of War formula. This game is one pulse pounding encounter after another, taking on waves of increasingly insane amounts of enemies. Pay no attention to the retarded story, and just enjoy it for the thrill ride that it is. It's very rare that you feel quite this powerful in a game, given the ability to slow down time and rocket boost all over the battle field, and the game encourages you really take risks and go balls to the wall. The game is stunningly produced, with graphics and frame-rate never taking a hit, even when there is pure mayhem occurring on-screen in this amazing shooter.

9.0Fantastic

Vanquish is an incredibly fresh feeling third person shooter if only because of how fast-paced and frenetic it is, with aggressive AI and the ability to temporarily slow time with AR Mode. The action is very polished, fluid and rewarding, and rather difficult compared to your typical modern TPS. Another great action game from PlatinumGames. I suppose the voice acting could stand to be a little better, and the cover mechanics should have been somewhat "stickier."
