Vanquish
« on: 05 June, 2011, 11:09:11 AM »
So, I'm finally getting round to clearing my pile of games I've bought but never played. I'd picked this up REALLY cheap but never bothered with it because of the comparisons with Bayonetta (a game I fucking HATED!)

However, I've just spent a VERY enjoyable few days blasting through it. The graphics are amazing, on a par with anything I've seen on the Xbox. The story was pretty good and suitably epic and some of the set pieces were great.

Recommended if you can get it cheap (Zavvi's Mega Monday is always good...)

I loved this.

Although on the face of it a Max Payne style 3D shooter, it reminded of 80s scrolling shoot em ups: take out waves of fixed pattern baddies, then face off against an end of level boss, all the while collecting power ups.

Top fun.
