First Vanquish Gameplay Trailer Is a Shooty Pyrotechnic Nirvana
Written Tuesday, June 08, 2010 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Vanquish looks like it could be the Bayonetta of third-person shooters with its fast-paced action and explosive pyrotechnics. Being developed by Platinum Games, Vanquish casts you in the metal boots of a badass space marine who looks like a cross between Master Chief and an iPod.
Fighting off armies of robo-terrorists who have destoyed San Francisco, Vanquish looks pretty intense with hundreds of missiles, lasers, bullets and bombs plaguing the screen and massive spider-like mechs stomping all over the place. It looks like a healthy mix of eastern and western influences will be in the game, with echoes of Gears' cover system and interface sitting happily alongside speedy, OTT action.
Words can't really do justice to the awesome gameplay trailer itself, so we suggest you give it a watch right now. "This is gonna be fun."
