Wanted: Weapons of Fate (PS3) - Review

VGChartz
31 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Wanted: Weapons of Fate is not your typical movie tie-in game. For one, it released several months after the film it is based on, but also it comes complete with an original story. That does not stop the game from falling into the same pitfalls most licensed based games do. Shallow gameplay mechanics and a short playtime rear their ugly head as they often do in this type of game. There are some positives elements though.

Wanted: Weapons of Fate

Playstation Illustrated
10 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Wanted: Weapons of Fate brings you back into the world of the action-packed movie involving assassins, bullet-bending and twist-filled plots, but this time you take control as you play as both Wesley Gibson and his father (in flashback levels). One of the things this game does right is the graphics.

Wanted: Weapons of Fate Review

  • Excerpt: Despite being a throwaway movie, Wanted should make for good video game material. The film followed Wesley Gibson, an ordinary man in an ordinary job who suddenly finds himself part of a team of assassins. This group, called the Fraternity, isn't simply a load of guns for hire, but a special group of people who use an ancient loom (we're not making this up) to find out who to kill next. And it gets stranger.

  • Conclusion: Shamefully brief and offering almost no replay value beyond gathering collectible scraps of paper to unlock perfunctory character skins and concept art, Wanted represents terrible value for money. You’ll undoubtedly enjoy playing thorough once, but only the truly dedicated will feel compelled to return for seconds.

  • Excerpt: Melodrama. It’s something we’ve all come to accept in our video games these days. If we’re not buckling our knees under the crushing task of saving all known civilization, we’re clinging to a scrap of makeshift cover, with tracers whizzing past our heads and only the weapon at our side to cut down unnamed hordes of terrorists, militants, mutants, aliens, zombies or whatever the hell else the developer chooses to throw at us.

  • Excerpt: It started as a comic, and then progressed to a movie, and now we get Wanted: Weapons of Fate the game. First off, if you have not seen the movie, then stop and do so. Don't worry I'll wait! Also, there are spoilers ahead in terms of the movie, so don't read on until after you have completed your task. You have been warned. The game starts five hours after you dish out some sweet revenge. The long range sniper shot to dear Mr.

Wanted: Weapons of Fate (PS3) Review

25 April 2009
  • Summary: Wanted does a lot of things right. It told a good story for a video game that made me care about what was going on. It has a cover system that works and there are no major complaints about the shooting mechanic. Curving bullets is cool and the feel of the Wanted movie is there. If you loved the movie and love third person shooters you will love Wanted: Weapons of Fate.

Wanted: Weapons of Fate review (PS3)

HonestGamers
19 April 2009
  • Excerpt: falls quite comfortably into the third-person shooter mold. You can run up to someone and gut him with a squishy-sounding thrust of your knife to his stomach or throat when it suits you, but most of your energy is reserved for the exchange of flying lead as you duck behind destructible bits of the environment and hope that your aim is good enough to wipe out all of the thugs that are gunning for you.
