Vanquish is a third-person shooter game developed by PlatinumGames and published in 2010 by Sega. Released exclusively on PS3 and Xbox 360, the game was well-known for its innovations that inspired many later games, including the combination of a 3D shooter with fast-paced bullet hell gameplay and the introduction of a boosted sliding-to-cover mechanic. Despite being criticized for its writing, voice acting, and short campaign, Vanquish managed to get positive reception from major game presses and gained an average of 84 out of 100 points on Metacritic. The game was also considered to be a financial success when it sold 830,000 copies after 6 months.
