    A great concept, but one whose execution screams for another year in development. [Issue#184, p.79]

    It's barely a game. [Nov 2009, p.130]

    Wet was always appealing to me, due to its grindhouse's style that could belong in a Tarantino movie. Unfortunately I'll quickly explain whyWet was always appealing to me, due to its grindhouse's style that could belong in a Tarantino movie. Unfortunately I'll quickly explain why this game has been a deception.

    First technically the game is pretty bad with outdated graphics for a 2009 game, very long loading time and even some framerate drops.The IA of the enemies is okay but won't be much of a challenge neither The art direction of the game deserved better,

    Now concerning the gameplay the first minutes are very fun, you're introduce to different moves, sword fight, etc... But you get nothing new during the rest of the game, well yes you'll have new skills and weapons, but they really are not useful and you'll finish the game using only your pistols, your sword and the same 3 moves (killing enemies without moves is just boring) and the game is still very easy, it's almost impossible to die because of the enemies, no the most probable ways to die during the game is during jumps and that's mostly because the camera is faulty and the jumps will fail if you jump one foot too soon or late you die. The "bosses" are all the same and once again very easy. There's a few enjoyable moment like "rage mode" or some QTE sequence, but they are too scarce to prevailed over the rest of the game.

    The story is, like you'd expected, pretty over the top with B-rank dialogues that you might love or hate depending on your tastes. However it will only last 6 hours which was way too short and the ending is obviously rushed (there's even one lieutenant of the bad guy that disappeared), they clearly cut some part of the game to get it out on scheduled.

    In conclusion the game fails in its game design it should have either work more on its looks and add more QTE's and sequences other than arena's fight. Or having a top notch gameplay that requires skills and less repetitive. In both case they should have at least finish the game properly. The six hours that the game last weren't bad and I liked the first half of it, but the repetitiveness of the gameplay killed this fun and at the end it was boring. Advisable only to grindhouse fans at a very low price.

    Third person shooter that does a stellar job mimicking 70's trash movies and featuring one of the coolest heroines ever. Armed with dualThird person shooter that does a stellar job mimicking 70's trash movies and featuring one of the coolest heroines ever. Armed with dual revolvers, a katana, and bullet time whenever she performs acrobatic moves, Rubi Malone shoots and slices thugs like none other. Too bad she only does it for about seven hours and suffers from countless sudden deaths due to failed jumps, slides, or quicktime events. Full Review »

    I am MAJORLY surprised to see that the critics liked this game more than the users! On my You Tube Christian gaming channel, Gaming 4 Jesus (I am MAJORLY surprised to see that the critics liked this game more than the users! On my You Tube Christian gaming channel, Gaming 4 Jesus ( http://www.youtube.com/Gaming4Jesus ), I gave this game a 8.5. Being that Metacritic does not allow half scores, I think the game is worth a 9 on here. At the time, this game broke the mold as far as Quinton Tarantino-type wit, obnoxiousness, and rough charm. Plus, how could anyone NOT love Eliza Dushku's voice performance! It was a bit cliche, sure! But she pulled it all off BRILLIANTLY! By the way, I cordially invite anyone reading this to visit my channel (referral above). I hope you will sometime enjoy this game as much as I did! Full Review »
