  1. Briefly interesting, until repetitive, unimaginative mechanics make the experience more closely resemble prostitution than actual gameplay. Ok if you’re looking for a cheap thrill (or a rental)...for everyone else, you’re advised to look elsewhere.
  2. A competent shooter, but just barely. The ideas behind the cover system and the bullet curve are certainly solid, but the rest of the game just doesn't hold up that well.
  3. Easily the worst shooter we've seen so far this year and quite possibly the whole of last year as well, we can't see fans of either the film, comic, or third-person shooters enjoying Weapons of Fate.

    A stunt-filled shooter in the vein (but not the league) of Stranglehold, it's a game that takes control away, reverts to how things used to be done, and judders between debilitating combat and haywire presentation. [May 2009, p.92]
  5. Wanted’s repetitive gameplay, awful dialogue, and plain-jane graphics provide an underwhelming experience that doesn’t make a case for being wanted by anyone.

It has its flaws (cover system shamelessly stolen from GoW) but it also has its good points (bullet curving) all in all its a fun game but it is way too short :( Full Review »

I'll put that into simpler terms: Am I the only one who thinks that this is Max Payne under a different heading? It's got bullet time, the same style of graphics, the same weapons, the same style of environments, the same bullet-sponge enemies, the same gloomy monologues. It just feels, in absolutely every single way, as if your playing max Payne on a 360. The only original part of this game is the ability to 'curve' bullets, which isn't exactly amazing. My only other beef wih it is that it's short and there's no multiplayer. To be honest, if you buy this then you'll be getting a fairly good game - just one that's been done before. To the letter.
