  • Summary: WET is a seamless integration of intense gunplay, death-defying acrobatics and exciting swordplay. The game tells the story of Rubi, an acrobatic gun-for-hire. When she agrees to help a wealthy man find and bring back his wayward son, all hell breaks loose and the tables are turned, as the man who hired her isn't who he appeared to be. Now Rubi's on the run, needing to find the man who left her for dead and leaving a massive body count in her wake. Innovative 3rd person shooter gameplay: With her trusty twin custom made Colt Pythons, Rubi gracefully engages in amazing, cinematic high-body count gunplay against diverse and challenging enemies. Along with her guns, Rubi has an arsenal of death-defying acrobatic moves. Her incredible agility allows her to climb on ledges, slide under obstacles, swing on poles and run along walls. Rubi's sword is an instrument for deadly close-quarter proximity attacks. Rubi will unleash a flurry of multi-staged stylized attack sequences. [Sierra Entertainment] Expand

  1. There never seemed to be alternate routes to take; there's one way to go and that's it.
  2. The game most certainly won’t be to everyone’s taste but third person shooter fans will definitely want to take a look and get WET with Rubi.
  3. It’s a classic rainy day rental and in that capacity, as an unpretentious shoot-em-up, it works just fine.
  4. WET has some fantastic moments, but is plagued by some annoying deficiencies. It’s really cool to swing through the levels with the well formed Ruby and at the same time shoot some nasty enemies to oblivion. But after a while playing this game, you find yourself doing the same thing over and over again, and the controls aren’t that precise. It’s a fun game you should get when it’s budget priced.
  5. Some parts of Wet are pretty decent, but the game clearly lacks highlights. There are way too many quick time events, especially during the final bossfight. To be accurate, the whole bossfight is a quick time event. However, everyone who enjoyed Stranglehold will have fun with Rubi too.
  6. 65
    Ultimately, WET only occasionally transcends average status, its brand of excessive action marred by a lack of depth, unrelenting repetition and a dearth of imagination. Strangely likeable, those seeking straightforward, uncomplicated shooting thrills may happily overlook the game's issues and enjoy a solid, fun-filled blast for a good few hours or so.
  7. A short-lived, occasionally exciting but overall shallow experience.

    F.. the review. Rubi and the Wet Team get 10's. Yeah there are some really inexcusable glitchy stuff, but the story and the feel are incredible.

    Quentin Tarantino movie in a game. Brilliant! Gratuitous and copious amounts of blood and violence, intriguing game play, and a decent story line make this game worth a play. Expand

    Wet is an action tour de force!! A really fun game that mixes old school Max Payne style gameplay with over the top action. The soundtrack alone warrants renting the game just so you can give it a listen. It's also very challenging, I beat it on hard but could never finish on the hardest setting, truly a challenge. Everything about the game is so over the top you can't help but wind up grinning from ear to ear while playing it! It's almost like playing a game version of a Guy Ritchie or Quentin Tarantino flick, even at the full price this game was worth every penny. Expand

    Wet borrows from the best, and adds on some originality to keep it intense from the first mission to the credits. Using parkour athleticism crossed with a helping of bullet-time, Wet really keeps itself from being just another one of those games that over uses slow motion.

    The story is horrible, but the cut-scenes are skippable, just get to the point where you are either locked in an arena before you can slaughter hundreds of goons with acrobatics and bloodshed at your leisure, or get to the point where you can speed run through roaming levels whilst slicing and dicing through anyone who gets in your path.

    If you like brutal violence, that only gets better with a variety of ways to leap,jump,swing,glide and slide into it, Wet delivers. Maybe not a game you want to tackle all in one go, but a perfect game to pick up and run through a level where the only limit to the ways to inflict pain is up to your co-ordination and imagination.

    Wet is a game made by Bethesda, The game is about Rubi, a crack assassin who knows her way around a gun and a katana sword. I applaud bethesda for releasing a game with a grindhouse/Quentin Tarrentino feel but you could of done so much more with the combat because it gets grating and repetitive most of the time but it still is pretty satisfying. Hopefully this game gets a sequal and improves alot ofthis games flaws. I want to give this a higher score but the repetitive combat lowered it. Though it's still a really good game. Expand

    Very good but very repetitive. It's like a cross between Kill Bill and Max Payne, in that you're basically watching a gore film but diving constantly in slow-motion. Expand

    Over the years, Bullet-time shooters have become a mini genre of their own. On top of the Max Payne series, we've seen The Matrix Games, Total overdose, The True Crime series, Stranglehold. All pretty simple but still fun. Now joining this mini genre, comes WET. The first thing you will hear about this game is that itâ Expand
