Although it isn't getting a ton of attention – what with all the known blockbusters heading our way soon – Platinum's Vanquish might end up being a huge sleeper hit.
Or at this rate, with so much in the way of gameplay footage hitting the Internet, it might not be much of a "sleeper" by the time it launches. Here's the latest video, featuring 3+ minutes of fast-paced, over-the-top goodness, and it really gives you a good idea of what to expect. There's a whole lot going on at all times, and the smooth transitions between sliding, shooting, and running is quite impressive. You gotta check it out.
We're sort of hoping that super sliding doesn't take the limelight throughout the adventure. But hey, how can it when you can slow down time and enter sniper mode in mid-leap?! The combination of Max Payne -like bullet-time and insane speed and maneuverability seems like a development nightmare and yet, it appears as if Platinum might pull it off nicely. What do you think?

seriously can't wait 2010 is shaping up nicely with this and enslaved
im glad im not the only one that is excited about playing Enslaved. I get the feeling most people here aren't looking forward to it at all.
dude I'm so all over enslaved ( a studio that gave us heavenly sword will never do us bad . I hope )…
the reason is why most ( i said Most ) ppl are not waiting for enslaved, simply because it went Multiplatform, that's it
The more footage I see of this game, the more I want to get it! That video just made me willing to pay full price for it. Only worried about the length of the game, although from the looks of it, it shows some replayability regardless..
Also, the commentator was quite funny 😛
I'm sorry but this thing is ugly, and the characters look pretty flat and plastic. I've got more fluidity and power in my urine stream.
WTH???? dude seriously ??? this game looks super awesome ..
Edit>>> Just recognized ya what the hell is this picture .lol

i lol at that commercial all the time, i wish i was that guy.
World, do you have a Platinum Game hate?
I know you don't like the Gears-esque graphical palette but there's really nothing wrong with the frame rate. At least, not in this video.
The colors are bland but it looks fun.
This is the guy from the DirecTV commercial kissing his miniature Giraffe. I fall on the floor laughing every time I see it, so I had to put it up for a bit 🙂
Well, it seems like Platinum believes if they have a lot of blurs and flashes and CONSTANT gun firing going on they don't have to put any time into decent looking characters, interesting plotlines, good graphics, or an experience that is anything other than mash mash mash mash mash. I dunno, I'm not much into arcadey games anymore. I want some damn substance over style and flash.
Basically, yeah it would be a fun rental, but since there is no multiplayer for the crackheads that usually like these games I don't see any reason to own it.

I'm not sure, I also noticed some minor lag like issues, nothing serious, but I did notice what World was talking about.
This game looks like it's gonna be one hell of a ride.
But I still wanna know what will take the multiplayer's place.
Apparently they said MP will ruin the fast paced experience. not that I agree. again what the hell do I know.
Yes, there's no multiplayer but what will Shinji put in to make up for it?
yeah, what I meant there will be nothing else.maybe a longer SP
I'd love to play this game against friends. It would be the perfect antidote for all the run-of-the-mill multiplayer these days.
Nothing… there's nothing, and the SP is gonna hafta fit a DVD9 so make of that what you will.
There's no MP because it wouldn't work well with this game. In Sp everything around you slows down while you butt slide and while you slow mo sniper mode, you can't do that in MP.
I hope they focus more on it being fun instead of fast and flashy.
The gameplay does look fun, what are you looking for?
I'm sold. Before i was going to wait a bit but now i want this more then Medal of Honor. I'd like more color but it looks fun enough i can get over it.
I agree with you on that, I'd rather have Vanquish than Medal of Honor.
i'll still get medal of honor rather than this. right now i need to get more bang for my buck and without multiplayer, it'll be just a game i'll play once or get platinum then forget.
All these video's have one thing in common. The colors of silver and grey.
You know before wet came out it showed all kinds of video of smooth butt sliding action, but then when you play it, the butt sliding was broken and annoying. I highly doubt this will be different.
I don't feel any different about this game after this video.
No, the butt-sliding is probably "tighter" on this one. 😉
LOL, that's just an optical illusion caused by the fact that everything in the game blends together due to lack of color.
Lol, this game looks smooth and polished. (My Style)! Hopefully, it won't be an dissapointment like Bayonetta on PS3!
The game-play looks fast & hectic, but very good.
BUT, looking at it graphically, it just feels so wrong, like I slathered a whole jar of Vaseline on my glasses before wearing them.
So, sorry to say, I'll have to Vanquish this game to the bargain bin, & pick up MOH instead.
At least MOH won't make me feel like I need a seeing-eye dog, a white tipped cane, and a cup of sharpened #2 lead pencils for sale in a tin cup on a dangerous street corner.
meh, still not impressed!
bayonetta looked effing sweet in the gameplay videos!
but i was so disappointed when i actually got to play it.
so im on the fence with this one, maybe a purchase once its 20 bucks or something.
looking better and better. but im more interested in Brink, but i will keep an eye out
This is looking like a definite pre-order for me. I love sci-fi, space stations, laser guns, whoopie! I just hope there are some missions and that sort of thing, so you get a chance to catch your breath between all the crazy shootouts. Love the way they say it's being lead developed for the PS3 in the video. Love the whole style of that video actually.
A real man doesn't need to slow down time to snipe in mid-air!!
Like Russell Peters always say in chinese accent, "BE A MAN!!!"
He is one funny ass comedian……LOL
this game looks really boring.
My wallet is crying right now, too many good games are coming out this year(Seriously, I want to get FO:NV, Vanquish, Enslaved, MOH, LBP2, and GT5, I have no idea how I'll get all that extra $)
This game looks a bit too hectic! I may just be spending all my time with Enslaved, but this might be good too.
It still kinda sucks though, yeah it's being lead developed with the ps3 but as it has been mentioned before it still has to fit on DVD9.
Looks fun, can't wait to see if it will be able to outplay the hype that will continually build as the year goes on.
