New Vanquish Gameplay Combines Fluidity And Power
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?
