A futuristic scenario sets the scene for a conflict between America and Russia for the worlds dwindling resources. The Russians have captured an American space station, designed for processing solar energy, with the intention of using its power for destructive purposes and zaps a major American city to show it means business and threatens another city if its demands are not met.

The gamers role is that of a US goverment operative, Sam, sent to aid a bunch of marines equipped with the latest muti-functional weaponry, upgrdeable by collecting three dimensional green cubes scattered about on all levels. SAM has a state of the art, innovative ARS suit of which his advanced weaponry can actually form a part so allowing him real-time changing of weapons. Some of the effects of thse weapons and other technical innovations are extremely imaginative and quite awesome visually.

Right from the start there is relentless shooting action through around thirty missions and even with these ultra high speed actions there are no techinical issues with frame rates. Having said that the graphics sometimes have a grainy effect but this can be viewed, and may have been intended as an enhancing and atmosphere generating effect. The very often stunning visuals and shooting action more than make up for the thinness of the sub plots. The main plot eventually develops into a race for self preservation.

The game has four levels and on completion of either Casual, Auto or Hard, the God Hard level of difficulty becomes unlocked. There loads of replay facility for those keen on beating previous high scores and low completion times.

The game also has the Vanquish Tactical Challenge. The challenges are made up of five missions involving the player and AI controlled marines out to destroy a host of enemies continuously attacking you. This challenge becomes harder as time goes on, involving more powerful enemies.

I can reecommend Vanquish as a graphically stylish game with spectacular shooting action without the often distracting complications of emotional involvement between characters. The best third person shooter this year.
