  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    One of the best game that is overlooked by many. Hope that this release wil be able to make more people enjoy this gem.^_^

    • I’m still waiting for the sequel – which, if the ending is anything to go by, has to come.

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        Sure.^_^ Vanquish 2 is probably one of the best thing should happen lol.

        But sadly, the fact that the game does badly there, makes the chance for sequel very low here.T_T

        • If the game is about blowing up Space Russians, just let us finish the whole thing, dammit! It’s not like the game is even that long.

        • z_merquise

          Kinda sad because I would really like to see more of this game. Even if it wasn’t Shinji Mikami directing since he left Platinum and made his own studio, I still wish for a sequel.

  • eilegz

    very expensive but this game deserve a sequel and hopefully its the next game to jump to the wiiu  since like bayonetta its a “dead” franchise that need nintendo cash to revive. =(

  • Rei

    Awesome game and I never regret trying it.

  • z_merquise

    More people should get to play this. This is one of the most awesome but underrated game.

    And for me, this is the best 3rd person shooting game I ever played.

  • i might finally get it just becuase i respect Platinum Games, though i don’t really like games like GeoW this one felt fresh and stylish

  • amagidyne

    This is maybe the only time I will say this: I hope they release DLC to give the game a proper ending. Yeah, end your 5-hour shooter on a cliffhanger that will never be resolved! Mikami, you genius, that’s an excellent decision!

    • TrevHead

      I would hazard a guess that Platinum were hoping to create a series out of Vanquish.

      In a way it’s a shame that a sequel is unlikely given the fact that over the past 2 years it has picked up so much cult appeal

      I personally like the fact that the game is so short, since the core gameplay is so fun it lends itself well to replayabiity.

      • amagidyne

        I wouldn’t have had anything against it being short as long as it had some sort of ending. Had they fixed that, the game would’ve felt more complete anyway. Instead, it’s like somebody forgot to include the last two levels on the disc and just had it cut out mid-sentence.

        That’s the only really bad thing I can think of about this game. I would’ve preferred some kind of reward other than a leaderboard score for completing levels, but that’s more of a personal preference.

  • SantiagodelosSantos

    I’m playing the game on the 360 now, it’s pretty fantastic. I’m sad to see that it bombed. The gameplay is spectacular, probably the best mechanics in a 3rd person shooter to date and it looks really good too. Yesterday i kicked a tank and made it blow up, while in mid air (with time slowed down) i took out my sniper and shoot a distant enemy then i took out my rocket launcher and shot a space craft. All in like 5 seconds

  • This game was pure magic – p* and mikami brought the feeling of a twitch 2d shooter to the 3rd person shooter genre. Enemy behaviors were amazing, threatening and entertaining… god hard difficulty will pwn you like no other game can – and damn i loved those challenge levels! To say this game was under appreciated is itself an under-statement. what is wrong with today’s gamer??? this was probably the best non-2d shooter of the generation – and no one played it. big loss for the gaming race.

  • Jack Frazee

    This game was an amazing experience. The platinum trophy was a bit too tough for me to bother going after (the challenge levels are HARD!), but I loved every second of the campaign.

    If you haven’t played it, I highly suggest doing so.
