I have never seen a more wild comparison in my life.
I'm very confused myself. Mayyyybe a tiny little bit the first one but not really. Past that? Not at all unless there's some weird spinoff that I missed (I didn't).
Vanquish and Metal Gear Rising are some cool action games by Platinum Games. They're on the short side though and Vanquish is console exclusive. If you really want control of your character you may not like MGR that much as it's loaded with QTEs and Ninja Run does a lot of things for you (deflecting bullets, climbing walls, diving through/over/under obstacles), it's the one game I feel QTEs worked in though. If you do try it, make sure to learn to parry in the tutorial. It's not hard but it's not something you'll figure out just playing the game and you can get through the first half without parrying but after that you'll just start getting destroyed and not be able to figure out why.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there XBL, PSN, Steam, Origin, BSN, GFAQs, MC: PhilOnDez
That's the last Ratchet and Clank game I played. The comparison doesn't seem all that wild to me. You run around in a cartoony world smashing random crap that shows up and collect the bits that fall out of disappearing enemies.... in both.
