Vanquish makes every other action game in the universe seem slow and dull. Seriously. The reason is simple: you have #$%*ing rocket boosters on your knees that let you zip across a battlefield in a matter of seconds. You can also use the inherent powers of your DARPA-enginreered battle suit to slow down time. The game is also befitting of the Platinum, whose insane action MO keeps them as one of the most consistently interesting developers out there. If all that wasn't enough, this is a sci-fi title from Shinji Mikami (his previous project before working with Suda on Shadows), and it's not a game you can just breeze through. The action is absolutely top-notch, though you should really just play it for the hilariously tongue-in-cheek script, a sendup of every American Gears-ian genre trope you can think of. Is this Platinum's best? Easily.
