Excerpt: A good title brings forth curiosity and claims attention. WET is such a title that knows how to attract attention, but mostly for men. The game is indeed all about a hot a sweaty babe who leaves you sitting in your chair with your mouth open thanks to her over-the-top acrobacy.
Summary: WET is a landmark for the ‘games as art argument’, and will be for years to come. But on top of this, it’s also fun throughout. The sense of satisfaction it gives when Rubi leaps off a wall and shotguns a man to death, slashing another with her sword in mid-air is unparalleled.
Pros: Excellent retro aesthetic, Gorgeous sound, Excellent run ‘n gun gameplay
Cons: Slightly repetitive, Challenge mode is BRUTAL.
Excerpt: If developer A2M had been tasked with making the game to tie in with Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill, WET would have been the result. The comparisons are many: WET's star is a deadly and sexy katana-wielding assassin called Rubi.
Conclusion: So what’s the final verdict for WET? It’s a title that doesn’t offer multiple revisits due to a lack of other game modes (mini-games/challenges might have helped in that area) and no multiplayer.
Excerpt: What is there to say about a game that shoots the bird at all of its shortcomings and injects cc after cc of pure adrenaline into the player? It turns out, there's a lot to say: WET is such a game.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Slow motion action shooters are cool. Watching everything blow up around you as your enemies bleed to death is something no one should get bored of. That is why Bethesda Softworks came up with Wet.
Excerpt: I’d been eagerly anticipating WET ’s release since seeing the first screenshots pop up in the back of GameInformer a few years back. The game looked like it could combine the best elements of Tomb Raider Stranglehold , and Max Payne into one fun to play package.
Excerpt: Wet is probably the most stylized title that we’ve seen in a long time. The game is dripping with atmosphere, and feels a bit like a Quentin Tarantino flick. Tarantino films and Wet both borrow heavily from the 1970s-era drive-in type of movie, though younger players will probably only know the...
Conclusion: Rubi uses her ample acrobatic skills to negotiate an array of elaborate set pieces (each better than the last, A2M really go all out on selling each locale) that culminate in a series of progressively more intense gunfights, a.k.a. Arena Performances, where style is everything.
