This is one of those games that I came across out of pure luck because I was looking for Black Ops II but then I saw this game and I remember two of my friends talked about this and say that it's good, even though they hadn't played it yet but since it was there, I picked it up. Needless to say, this was great day late birthday gift for myself and holy mother of god.......this game is INSANE!!!
This game was directed by the creator of 'Resident Evil' and even though I'm not a fan of that franchise...all I can say to Shinji Mikami is 'Well Done' because this game is good. For a 'Gears of War' clone, Vanquish is the an excellent experience and though it does prove to be a difficult game, it's difficult for the right reasons because you will find yourself coming back for more and when you get through a certain part of a game that's hard, it can be VERY rewarding. Much like Dark Souls 1 & 2 (even though I'd never played those games) it's a treat for those who crave a decent challenge. The story isn't much to say and it ends on a cliff-hanger but you'll find yourself replaying this game more then once but it's that much fun.
The thing I love about Platinum Games is that they know what we gamers want and we want games that contain good storylines, good gameplay, likeable characters, and a decent challenge. It's a great breath of fresh air from FPS (First Person Shooters) games and a delight.
This IS a forgotten game because either people just forgot about it or it didn't get enough credit that it deserves but if you can ever find this game...........Get ready for the ride of your life (literally).
yes: I recommend this product
