Not sure about Platinum Games new effort, Vanquish? Yep, it’s another shooter, true, but judging by how the developer stunned the world with Bayonetta, no one should take lightly Vanquish.
UK’s Play Magazine isn’t one of them. For the mag, Vanquish is “the best game of the month”.
“When it’s in the zone, Vanquish is about as good as action gaming can get,” the publication wrote. “Much more than the ‘Gears Of War only faster’ many were expecting, it draws upon the best ideas from a wide range of influences and blends them into an eye-bleedingly intense whole. The best game of the month.
After the surprise success of Bayonetta, Sega and PlatinumGames return with a shooter that is in contention for game of the year. Vanquish is a fast, frenetic and, above all else, fun shooter that manages to meld a wealth of established ideas together into something that feels fresh. I think it will certainly surprise a lot of people and is a perfect mix of both Eastern and Western gaming styles.”
We’re not going to add anything to it, this description says it all.
It’ll be out on October 19th for PS3 and Xbox 360.
