Vanquish gameplay - first 30 minutes

See the opening scenes of the Platinum Games' pretty shooter

Vanquish is out today in the US, and while you might want to wait until Friday - just a few short days - to get your Shinji Mikami-flavoured fix, we have tons of gameplay footage to drool over before you do.

With some mixed reviews (high marks from PSM3, not so much in CVG's Vanquish review), you can use the footage to gauge whether or not you should splash the cash on Platinum Games' undoubtedly gorgeous shooter.

But beware; it's a short game, so this is like watching an eighth of what it has to offer.
