  • 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. There never seemed to be alternate routes to take; there's one way to go and that's it.
  2. WET is an aquired taste, and while some gamers will love to splash around in this off beat amusement of campy action, others will simply shake their heads.
  3. Well worth checking out if you can stomach lots of blood, cheesy dialogue, some overly scripted moments, dreaded QTE, in fact all the ingredients that make an action packed game that's more expected than inspiring.

    While the action is at times shallow and clunky, WET provides gamers with light popcorn entertainment that's an arguably short, but fun ride.
  5. Wet is definitely a competent shooter and hopefully it does well enough where Artificial Mind and Movement will get a chance at another title.
  6. On the whole, the game feels like it struggles with itself: On one hand it presents some enjoyable artistic and campy elements, as it plays homage to an old film genre, and delivers a star cast of mildly acted voice talent complemented by a superbly fitting rockabilly soundtrack; while on the other, it tussles with quirky gameplay mechanics that sometimes just don’t work.
  7. 50
    Wet has a great story with some excellent voice acting from the main players – the people behind Pelham, Ackers and Rubi all manage to carry off that dark, menacing vibe without straying into comic book territory. It’s just that the game lacks any real staying power – the scoring mechanic isn’t strong enough and the inconsistent pacing will fail to draw many players back after the initial playthrough.

    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.

    It's kind of surprising how a lot of reviews seem to hint that this game is 'boring' and 'not fun'. That's It's kind of surprising how a lot of reviews seem to hint that this game is 'boring' and 'not fun'. That's pretty ridiculous if you ask me. In the first hour and a half of the game, I've seen more very cool and Tarantino-esque moments then I've seen in most 'blockbuster' games, like let's say, Halo 3. If anything I found Halo 3 boring and uninspired when compared to something like this. WET takes the third person genre and gives it a much needed shove. While I won't deny that it can get repetitive and frustrating at times, there's quite a bit of variety in the game to keep things from getting stale, and, this game single handedly restored my faith in quick-time events. It's a single-player game, so don't expect a whole lot of replayability, but WET is most definitely worth your time if you like Tarantino style movies and Rockabilly Western style action, flair, and music.

    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 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. Expand

Et en plus, c'est moche ! Par ailleurs, l'ambiance à la Tarantino est insupportable, clichés et poncifs s'agglutinent sans aucune gêne et sans la moindre once de dignité. Je pensais caler le bureau avec ce sous-produit mais en fait non, même un bureau ne mérite pas ça. Expand
