Pros
-beautiful graphics
-nonstop balls to the wall action
-smooth and fluid mechanics of shooting and sliding
-enjoyed looking for guns to upgrade

Cons
-too short
-no armor upgrades

Bottom Line
The equation for this game goes as follows: Gears of War + Halo + Zone of the Enders = Vanquish, and thats definitely not a bad thing. This game moves at break neck speed and is a very solid shooter. For most people this game is only worth a rent because it's so short (took me 3.5 hours). But I enjoyed it so much, I think it's easily worth $20, and if you're a fan of 3rd person shooters, then this game is a must.

I never thought in all the years that i've been gaming that i would a game this good, it's got plenty of action and action...oh did i mention action??? On top of that it has great graphics and a pretty good story, even had some moments that made me cringe harder that if i was watching a genuine movie. All in all this game is halo meets Cod meets....transformers? Well anyway it's a must rent and i may even buy it....did i mention how easy it is to get achievements/trophys?

Most Import Points:

1) This game is fast and furious. Its so fluid and there's never a hint of lag, framerate drop, or slowdown. I found myself not being able to put it down because it flowed right into the next stage without stopping.

2) It looks gorgeous and very detailed

3) It's a SEGA game and very Japanese (For me at least). I don't mean this as a putdown, just pointing out that there are themes that don't quite click if you are used to playing western developed games. There are story and humor elements that don't quite come across in western culture...and everyone in the US uses the 'F bomb' for punctuation in every conversation</sarcasm>

4) There is some deeper strategy involved with the suit power levels, the weapons you level up, and how you use your dash/bullet time. It's fun.

5) The story is passable but suffers from some bad writing. The gameplay makes up for it though.
