The story takes place on a vast space station in a near future world where nations war over the planet’s remaining energy resources. Against this backdrop, players take the role of Sam Gideon, a government agent kitted out with a futuristic battle suit. A versatile fighter with a huge arsenal of weaponry at his disposal, Sam also has an array of martial arts skills that he can use to take down his robot enemies.

Just downloaded the demo too on PSN.
It's a bit hectic oO

Played the demo and its pretty awesome. Expected from platinum game. Ordered this along with 4 other game which was in the preorder sale.

not tried the demo yet does look good tho

Didn't think much of it. Could see the novalty of it wearing off after a few days

Awesome cover!

Thankyou , ordered! + use this code (iwoot10)) to get an extra 10% off. This code only last for the next 72 hours I think. Brings the price down to £26.09.

Played the demo, pretty awful game. Everything from the combat to the vehicle controls etc just feel ripped from Lost Planet 2, and are more poorly implemented. The animations are pretty bad too.

Expect this to be in the bargain bins as quickly as Bayonetta was.

The PS3 cover is smaller but shows more of the image. Witchcraft.


Expect this to be in the bargain bins as quickly as Bayonetta was.

Bayonetta was fantastic though

The Vanquish demo is like a sped up version of Gears of War with dodgy controls. I wouldn't say it was as bad as Lost Planet 2 but I'm fed up of 3rd Person shooters with space marines and this offers noting new to make me even think about playing another one.

The demo was great but I fear it will be in £10 range by January.

Played the demo pretty pants ,
gameplay and graphics are poor

poor graphics, wtf, loads going on the screen.

get down ta specsavers, seems this game has a hate brigade for some reason.

Awesome looking game, pre-oredered. The demo was mad frantic fun.

I played the demo before reading any gaming forums or anything so as not to have my opinion affected or my expectations lowered (did the same with Mafia 2 demo) . I loved it and im not normally a 3rd person fan apart from the Uncharted series .

Great price although no longer available. The demo was really fantastic; great action Bayonetta to Gears of War's Devil May Cry! A breath of fresh air for this type of game.

Vanquish Review

For anyone who ordered this from Zavvi, my normal edition hasn't even despatched yet, but they've taken the money. Very, very poor show, has anyone else experienced this?
