  • 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 theWET 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. WET has taken the third person shooter genre and turned it completely on its head – not for everyone, but I loved every last second of it. Tarantino would be proud.

    The atmosphere is top notch, and the game bristles with a raw energy that is a joy to behold. The art direction is excellent, particularly in Rage Mode, and the soundtrack is one of the best we’ve heard. It’s unfortunate the gameplay can be a little repetitive and dying is just plain annoying. [Nov 2009, p.78]
  3. Though there is a certain roughness to the action, Wet is still a raucously entertaining adventure.

    Rubi Malone stars a title with good ideas but irregular results.
  5. Is WET a must buy? Nope, but it could be a good choice at the moment, without impressive releases and if you need an easy game to spend some hours with fun. The only rule is that you have to like Tarantino of course!

    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.

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

    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! Expand

The first hour of the full game was worse. Yet something made me give this game a chance, and I'm SO glad I did. Once you get used to the slightly awkward control's everything seem's to open up and make sense. The level design and graphics seemed to improve as the game progressed and the final two or three levels looked great. I've always been a fan of the Tomb Raider games but I can't remember the last time I managed to play one to completion, something always frustrated me or I became bored due to the familiarity of it all. At times WET feels a little like Tomb Raider, but well before that climbing/swinging/where-is-that-damn-key fatigue sets in you are plunged into a mad 10 minutes of non-stop gun and sword play, where the variety of moves and abilities puts other 3rd person games to shame. I short, I played WET to completion and I can't say that about many PS3 games. Expand

    the game has alot of potential but is shot down abit do to bad platforming , dull level's , repetitive levels , boring story. you can tell thethe game has alot of potential but is shot down abit do to bad platforming , dull level's , repetitive levels , boring story. you can tell the developers where big fans of kill bill and the game has abit of its feel . the game reminds me abit of max payn as well. the gun mechanics and sword play are pretty well done and are what mainly holds this game from falling into the toilet . there are also alot of bugs and glitches have had a freese up or two and got stuck in things or have the QTE not work . the game is at best a rental or if you can get it dirt cheap which i think now you pretty much can.

    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.

Graphical-style is so-so, where the art direction they went with was a good idea, but its not up to next gen standards. Rage mode is excellent, but extremely breif. Other parts feel tacked on to extent gameplay, while odd cut-scenes and missions seem pointless. Nice concept, game is fun in spurts... but not what it could have been. No real replayability; rent.

It had so many good ideas, but too many ideas, and not enough of putting them into action. The one thing that i really liked about this games was Rubi's blood rage moments. Very artistic and very original. Other then that, maybe worth a rent, but under no circumstances worth buying. Expand
