Finished playing the scifi video game on Xbox. This is the type of games I enjoy- fast moving adrenalin pumping action, space stations, advanced technologies and detailed textured cut-scenes. There is a sense of immersion during gameplay (see plot here). This game is similar in concept to the Halo series but lack the sophistication of the Halo universe. The program is driven by the Havok gaming engine. After this types of games, watching sci-fi movies seems tame. Developed by Platinum and published by SEGA:
The story of VANQUISH™ is set in the near future. Russia and the United States are vying for ownership of the world’s fast-depleting energy resources and the US has constructed a space station in order to harness energy from the sun. Russian forces capture this space station and divert its harvested solar energy into a blast wave that destroys San Francisco, aiming to force the US into a total and unconditional surrender. In response, the US tasks its armed forces with recapturing the space station before the Russians can annihilate their next target –New York.
Directed by Shinji Mikami, the creator of the Resident Evil series, VANQUISH™ is a sci-fi shooter game that sees players take the role of Sam, a government agent kitted out with a futuristic battlesuit. A versatile war fighter with a huge arsenal of weaponry at his disposal, Sam also has an array of martial arts skills that he can use to take down his robot enemies.
