Is this game good?

Just seen this on play.com for £12.99 is it worth picking up?

havent really heard anything about it can someone say what it is about and how it plays?

It is an amazing game! The opening sequence is a little more graphic then I would care for, but the rest of the game is good. Something about sliding around the place in power armor, blowing up robots is just to satisfying.

It may take a bit to get accustomed to the controls, but there is a handy tutorial level to practice on.

Achievements are not that hard to get either, except maybe the god hard ones, that takes a lot more skill then I possess.

If you are looking for a good plot...Well, it is kinda predictable in an anime sort of way.

Getting it cheap is your best bet, seeing as this game is not worth the full price (In my opinion) Though SOME parts can be fun, others are just daunting and annoying.

Like Brokenprey say's, the game is real short. I got bored halfway through the second play through. On the plus side the game is visually amazing, you'd be staring at the environment more than playing.

Exclamation

Vanquish is one of the best games I've ever played. It takes the standard western style shooter and injects it with a very Japanese feel, skill based gameplay with pattern recognition and different weapons for different occasions. I was a big fan of Lost Planet so maybe it's jusy my "thing".

The challenges are fun and the unlockable difficulty is a great 2nd playthrough.

Still I'd only recommend anyone paying £20 or less for it as it doesn't have the bells and whistles of other games (multiplayer shit etc.) unless you're 21+ and able to enjoy a rare "true" video game.

I'd suggest the two demos before buying it, although for that price it's a steal, I still need to buy it :3

Definitely get it…

Very unique gaming style and controls. Took me awhile to get used to it.

Try the demo and go from there. I think I just bought it on the cheap and have had trouble getting into it. I am giving it another go and enjoying it but not as much as I thought.

Was very enjoyable! I just finished it on hard and am hoping to get back to complete some challenges and some achievements I missed during the story.

I would describe it as Gears of War merged with Bayonetta. Very fun at times and some boss fights were intense as hell but very satisfying once you kill them

Japanese

VERY Japanese. Reminded me of Lost Planet a little. Not a lot in terms of plot, but if you like blowing up robots, then Vanquish is the way to go. It does get a bit repetitive thou

I have to agree with people. Bought it some year ago or so and stopped playing after some 2 missions. I returned to it now and I'm loving it so far. It's really good, intense. You should give it a go, shouldn't even be expensive anymore anywhere.
