The game continues the story of hero Wesley Gibson, picking up the action where the film leaves off and creating an entirely new chapter exploring both Wesley's journey to becoming an unmatched überassassin and the epic fiction of "The Fraternity." Featuring intense third-person action, the Wanted video game will take combat to the next level with iconic moves -- such as "Curving Bullets" and "Assassin Time" -- drawn directly from the film, as well as an innovative, multi-layered cover mechanic.

  1. Wanted: Weapons of Fate, surprisingly, is not only better than a typical movie-licensed game, it’s better than a typical action game.
  2. The search for the best angle to take a shot, the good controls and smooth gameplay combine into a fast-paced foray, which ends just as fast after only four hours. There should have been a multi-player mode, the father and son characters almost demand a co-operative mode. The game is cheaper than usual, but it's still too expensive for a game that short.
  3. Wanted: Weapons of Fate doesn’t suffer from the “Bad movie-license game” curse. It is not that bad. But it suffers from being too short and not having enough after you beat it to keep on playing.
  4. Wanted is a decent action game, a classical third person shooter that throws you in the world of Mark Millar graphic novel, unfortunately the game is a little bit short and actually tedious, despite its well devised cover system that let you run freely around objects.

    The combat is, despite flowing well, incredibly and utterly console. [June 2009, p.74]

    Wanted is way better than any other movie–to–game product, but it’s way too short to enjoy it for longer than a single afternoon. Minigames suck, brilliant controls and spectacular effects that rock. [Apr 2009]
  7. There’s a mixed bag of ideas present in Wanted: Weapons of Fate, but as a whole it feels terribly rushed.

    This is a really really absolutely excellent game. Pretty much the best shooting game I've ever played, and I've played plenty. This is a really really absolutely excellent game. Pretty much the best shooting game I've ever played, and I've played plenty. Why? Because it let's you be cool, badass, and hardcore, just like you were in an action movie. You can pull off incredibly cool kills and feel like it is you doing them. You can chain moves together to outflank unsuspecting enemies and hit them in the head. You can curve bullets to hit them behind cover. You can uses pistols the whole time!! I love pistols! Pistols are cool in a way machine guns aren't. I've always liked pistols more than machine guns in games, the kills are so much more satisfying because each bullet is a mouse press so you feel more like it is you doing the killing rather than auto-fire doing the killing. That connects you with the game more. And, perhaps most importantly, your character LOOKS COOL while shooting and killing. You character takes up COOL POSES while shooting. I love that!!! I love it when the game character shoots in a cool way. I love the way one character holds the guns sideways. It is hardcore! It makes you feel totally and utterly badass! That is what I want out of a game! Another game which did this a little bit is Dark Sector, if your character is standing with his back to cover he can blindfire the pistol in his left hand under his right armpit! I got a headshot like that once and it was just the sweetest moment ever in shooting games, because the character looked so cool while doing it. Also the graphics in Wanted are very, very sweet on a good PC. Basically this game does action like I want it - it lets you pull off cool moves, and lets you use a pistol a lot, so it scores very very highly in my book. And I am not some dumb gamer with no taste and low standards who likes any game that lets you blast away mindlessly. I hate blasting away mindlessly, but in Wanted every bullet counts, it is the opposite of mindless blasting! That is why it is good! It is a cool, good game with ace mechanics and extremely satisfying and enjoyable gunplay. Admittedly I haven't completed it yet but I do love it. Expand

    Good game. Nice graphics, sound effect, and story. The biggest plroblems, that the game too short and there are a lot of cutscene, every 1-3 minutes.

I checked the games website, but there is no support for it. Many people are also have the same problem. Apart from that it had a rubbish menu system. For the display options it only has two options, resolution and screen ratio. In general do not buy this game at all, it simply does not work! Expand
