Xbox 360 and PS3 owners looking for a dose of lightening speed shooting and dodging need to look no further than Platinum Games demo for Vanquish.
If running around as a vigilante witch destroying angels by using your hair as a weapon wasn’t quite your cup of tea, then maybe Platinum Games’ new title, the Vanquish game, will please you a bit more.
This Sci-Fi action/shooter, helmed by Shinji Mikami of the Resident Evil fame, is an extremely fast paced, cover based game that focuses heavily on being able to quickly moving between cover, turning your enemies into bullet littered swiss cheese, and bashing brains in with melee combat.
From the brief moments that I’ve spent with the game, it definitely seems interesting and most certainly has style. I’m eager to see what the full game has to offer and if it’s extremely twitchy gimmick can hold up without growing stale.
Also, take heed of the seizure warning the game offers. Vanquish, more than most games, would need that warning. After playing, I felt my eyes were stuck in the spin cycle of a washer. In a good way.
