Okay, Jason, I've got a question for you. This game sounds awesome. I want to play it. None of the rental stores around me seem to have it in stock, so would you say this game is worth buying? $60 is a lot to spend and I like getting my money's worth out of the games I buy. Does Vanquish offer enough content to justify its entry fee? Is it so fun that the price shouldn't even be a factor? Or should I wait for a price drop?

Yeah, I've pretty much already made the decision but if it's a really bad idea I'm giving people one last chance to talk me out of it.

I want to buy it... but I'm broke. Oh well, time to make sad faces at the wife until she buys it for me.

It's a great game and if I had the time, I'd probably play through it again at least once during the next week or so. I don't know how many times I'd realistically play through it, honestly, but it's not the sort of game where you finish it once and say "Well, that's it, I'll never play this one again." At least, I wouldn't say that. There's no multi-player mode, but as I recall that's not a problem for you, anyway. Good stuff. Totally took me by surprise. I expected rather generic fluff with sloppy execution, but instead I got fluff with such polished and enjoyable execution that... I'm going to stop typing now. I really want to play it again now and I just can't. There's too much other stuff I have to get done this week.


"Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought." - John F. Kennedy on reality

"What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto

Nice review Venter. You and Zig convinced me.
