    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 andWet 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.

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

    While the gameplay might not be the tightest and it is a bit short at 6/7 hours, you cannot deny that this game has a good sense of style and action thats pretty rare in games. So if your after an action packed game then this is worth a rent. At least.

    The controls in this game are awful, and bad controls pretty much ruin an action game like this completely.Good idea, but really bad execution.

    Game absolutely blows. Controls are terrible and the novelty of the game wears of in about 30 minutes and becomes very monotonous. While playing expect to die from no fault of your own many times through the game. Also expect an annoying burning movie reel effect every time you die. Game doesn't allow you to skip a lot of the cut scenes to make the game seem longer. I expected better fromGame absolutely blows.

I expected better from Bethesda, makers of Fallout 3, the greatest game ever. Expand

    This game is visually interesting and is a blast to play. The acrobatic shooting is incredible! However,

    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.

    Wet is certainly an interesting little game. It's mechanics strongly resemble those of games such as Stranglehold (great game, go check it out), only a bit more acrobatic, a Kill Bill atmosphere and the actual feeling of being in a movie (with clever insertions such as the "mid feature snack breaks" and other ones like the "pre-screening count down" before respawns) make Wet a game uniqueWet is certainly an interesting little game.

Apart from this, it has severe problems. The controls can be imprecise at times, random invisible walls, annoying looped music and a general feeling of emptiness can penalize the game experience. It's a good concept with a mediocre concretization. You can have some fun with it, but it's definetly not what you would expect from a company like Bethesda. The Gaia game engine isn't really that great, but it does it's job.

    Still, we need more adventurous experiments like this. They are like fresh air in an smelly, old and cracked gaming industry.

    Wet is a good game but many flaws prevent it from being great.

    Wet has a stylish and totally awesome combat system with a very cool acrobatic based slow-mo.Any time you shoot after running off a wall,jumping in the air or off of something,or by sliding and shooting while on the floor.It is an awesome system,as your character has 2 pistols,the game automatically locks on to one,while you

    The graphics look decent,but with an awesome grindhouse inspired style.The game's framerate has an occasional drop but never at a severe detriment to the gameplay.

    The story here is decent.I won't spoil it in case you want to play the game.

    The sound design is decent,but the game has a great soundtrack.

    Overall,Wet is a game that,while entertaining,could have been so much more.It's still a pretty good game that I recommend giving a try

    WET isn't really an original game. Several ingredients are taken from other good titles. Nevertheless, WET is amusing for a couple of hours and therefore it's just a good B-title.
  2. Just when you thought the third-person action/shooter genre was running thin on style, Wet has come along and shaken things up for the better.
  3. Wet is a very good game that any fan of shooters will enjoy.
