I bought this game after playing four hours of it at a friend's house and I love this game to pieces from explosive beginning to explosive end. This may be the most overlooked game of 2010, through no fault of its own.

Vanquish is an action game that combines ninja acrobatics, breakneck racecar speed, and cover-based shooting inside a nuclear-powered battlesuit that can slow time. It's fun, it's stylish, and it's completely crazy.

The premise is simple: you're Sam Gideon, the fleshy wad beneath your nuclear powered battlesuit. Russians on a space station nuked San Francisco with a giant microwave, and you've got to stop the same from happening to New York. Along with you for the ride: a regiment of space marines right out of the movie Aliens, and a hot communications chick in the veins of Anya or Cortana. Standing in your way: a massive robot army whose torsos aren't going to separate from their legs without your help.

On its surface, Vanquish is a standard third-person shooter. That means you can take cover behind walls and barriers and pop out to shoot, roll to dodge incoming fire, and have the standard variety of shooter weapons at your disposal. The core mechanic of the game that separates it from games like Gears of War is that your nuclear-powered battlesuit can turboboost you in a slide (like on the cover), and while you boost or perform other acrobatic actions you can activate slow-mo to really put the hurt on enemies.

Also, in Gears of War, you won't get to run (yes RUN) up the side of a three-story tall war robot and then shove a cannon shell the size of a car back into the gun it was fired out of.

The game is constantly exciting.

Very good game, impressive graphics. The action is fantastic, so great for the more hardcore audience. Voice casting is ridiculous for male characters and the game is a bit too short.

I rented this when it first was released and it was one of my favourite games ever. The action was just amazing! I decided to finally buy it and beat it again and it was just as satisfying. Some people are going to give it criticism that it's a really short game, which it is, but I personally don't find that to be a downside.

Fun Game!!! It's a game where you are expected to die a thousand deaths before figuring out how to get around any particular boss. That said, no matter how hard it is it remains highly addictive and great fun throughout.
