When I look at Vanquish I'm reminded of Gears of War. It has third-person shooting. It has covering. It has brutal melee. And it is very much sci-fi influenced. But the speed at which Vanquish moves is something else. Gears is intense, but Vanquish looks intense at an ear-bleeding velocity. If it was a space ship, I'd put money on it winning the Kessel Run in less than 11 parsecs.
Oh, and slam-dunking missiles? Count me in.
