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. We think Wanted will divide the public, with probably more detractors than praisers. Genre fans, used to mediocre games without souls, should overlook Wanted's flaws and see the braveness and effort in this not so ostentatious production.
  2. For fans of the film, the game is the perfect match. Folks that like action-shooters may be disappointed, because Wanted: Weapon of Fate is too linear and offers too little alternation.
  3. Wanted: Weapons of Fate is like buying a car from a shifty looking guy down an alley. It has some nice features, it works well, it may even be really, really fun, but then you realise that you’re missing a massive chunk of what you paid for and you can’t help but feel somewhat cheated.

    Wanted: Weapons of Fate is a very stylish game that uses some very clever and entertaining mechanics and set pieces.
  5. This movie-inspired shooter is fun for a while, but the action becomes repetitive long before you reach the end of the six-hour story.
  6. 56
    Those who have seen Wanted should certainly play this game, because the story continuous where the movie has stopped. Other shooter fans, better leave this title out. The game is too standard, and not worth 60 euro for only 3 hours of gameplay.
  7. A half decent storyline and inspired source material do little to conceal the miserable effort Weapons of Fate turns out to be. This is not primetime playing or even pastime stuff, its B-side gaming best left on its own to die an unimportant death. Fans of the movie or the cult comic series by Mark Millar may want to try it, but approach with caution.

It also contains possibly the best 3rd person cover system in any game to date! Only the sub par graphics and glitches prevent it reaching a 10. Expand

    When your forced to jump between cover shooting enemys and "bending bullets" the game is at its best. But when your forced to leave coverWhen your forced to jump between cover shooting enemys and "bending bullets" the game is at its best. But when your forced to leave cover everything goes pair shaped. Maybe you should have been locked onto only cover? First time i've ever said that. Expand
