WET is a third person shooter game, where shooting with a pistol, the use of a sword and acrobatics come together. The game is divided into several chapters that are regularly interrupted for a movie. Usually the movie shows what's coming up next. Thus there is a kind of story in the game.
The game begins with a movie. Rubi is on a building and looks down at a deal between a Western man (with a briefcase) and an Asian (who wants to have the briefcase). The deal doesn't go well. The Western man is shot and the Asian takes off with the briefcase. The movie ends with Rubi jumping down and landing in the middle of a conservatory. Then it's time for you to take control. It starts very simple so you can learn how to use the control buttons. Step by Step you get the opportunity to use the various buttons. First appears a message what you need to do and can take as long as you want to do it right. For an average PS3 gamer this should not be a problem and succeed in one go. Then you chase the robber to stop him. You run trough the city which makes the game almost a normal run and shoot game. However, I soon came in a arena. This is a place where you must turn different switches. If you don't turn the switch, the enemies will keep coming.
If you have properly closed the first chapter you arrive in Texas. Here 'lives' Rubi in an airplane. Around the aircraft there is a practice area where you learn to deal with the different guns. This is done by means of three challenges. You need to do two obstacle courses, and manage to shoot 90 things with a huge gun. All this within a limited time. This, too, for the average gamer should be easy.
Then the story continues. Even now am running through the city interspersed with various arenas in which you must kill many enemies as possible. Although the controls are generally the same thing, the game remains varied. This is due to the different moves you should use to get it all together.
The game has reasonable graphics. Actually I noticed I was a bit disappointing with Bethesda especially if you compare it with other games from them. The makers are very much influenced by B movies of the last century. This is reflected in the quality of the image. It's like streaks in the image around. This means you really get the feeling that you are watching a B movie from the last century. Actually, the style is much adopted from Grindhouse by Quentin Tarantino. This style is reflected in the entire game.
WET is a fun game that has managed to captivate me. When I started I found it fun to play. However, it lacks much depth and after having played the single player, you have seen it all really. It is fun to play an action game where the emphasis is more on acrobatics. This has given me great pleasure to play with and it makes the game worthwhile. What is to be noted is that you must be a fan of this genre and style.
WET for the PS3 sees a combination of sword and gunplay and brings memories of the Killbill movie franchise to gaming. The protagonist, voiced by Eliza Dushku, will vault, wall run and slide her way through levels whilst shooting constantly making this a high energy, fun game for the system.
Graphically the game is not great but the grindhouse style makes up for that and you could easily imagine this being a Tarantino interactive movie. The story is full of shady characters and is nicely paced throwing you into the action as soon as possible.
The gameplay itself is very entertaining however offers very little new later in the game other than the odd new gun and I found myself less motivated as the game went on. That said it is still incredibly enjoyable mixing up your attacks and flying round the arenas.
The soundtrack is another thing that makes this game stylish and unique, punk, fast paced tracks play as you decimate your enemies and you will be searching out some of the songs when you are done.
A fairly well-executed idea that could have done with more variation, howeverif you enjoy Tarantino and the Killbill movies this is certainly worth a try.
Wet is a action shooter game which originally came out for the Xbox 360 and the PS3, on first playing this it reminded me of playing Stranglehold and Max Payne and it takes some concepts from those two games that's why.
You play as a gun touting girl called Rubi so when an simple job that she was assigned to do goes horribly wrong, she's not messing about and wants to get even with those people who messed her up.
In this game there are a lot of bullets which will be thrown around, also there will a lot of blood as you can expect in these kinds of games. The more bad guys you start to kill you get extra points for chaining attacks by shooting them with your gun and it's very satisfying.
The single player mode you be chasing after villains, killing thugs, and escape from daring and impossible situations. This game I felt wasn't that serious from its presentation, story and characters.
I felt the presentation is the games strongest aspect. There is a film scratch filter that distracts from the mediocre visuals and animations in the game. The environments look dark and creepy and work well with the tone of the game.
The character dialogue is cliché, unoriginal and not very interesting and at the same time it's memorable. This game's biggest feature is the large use of slow motion in the action parts of the game.
One thing I liked is that it done it well rather like max Payne where it was very limited, you can walk on the walls and sliding around the place to get in place to kill your enemies as you do this time will slow down around you.
One feature I enjoyed was in one level I jumped in the air and I tagged two bad guys with my gun and fired two double fun shots to kill them. Another thing that the frequency of the bad guys you kill it won't slow down your time.
I felt this had more style than substance and you start to get bored the longer this game carries on, as the challenges to me felt very similar to each other.
I liked the level where you are on top of the cars and you are shooting at the bad guys who are in a vehicle trying to get away and you jump from one vehicle to another, there are also time sequence events where you have to make sure you have to stay alive within a special time.
I like the way you can swing on poles and at the same time shooting at the bad guys. There are many extra challenges which I enjoyed there is one where you have to jump through hoops using pools and the same time shoot at your enemies which was quite challenging.
I felt this game was actually quite good better than I expected it has like a retro movie style feel and at the same time feel like a game like stranglehold, I thought the slow motion wasn't done as well as stranglehold but it's still good.
It has a lot of extra challenges even after you complete the story, but one of its let down was I was feeling kind of uninterested and bored towards finishing the game as it got kind of repetitive and bored me doing same routines.
Wet looks and feels like a Qunetin Tarantino film, in fact you could say that the developers have basically ripped off the Kill Bill films and mixed in a bit of Grindhouse too.
You play a sexy female, samurai sword wielding, assasin (not unlike Uma Thurman's 'The Bride'), who hacks, slices and shoots her way through various levels and missions.
At first I was impressed by the gameplay, and enjoyed the slow-mo shooting action (simialr to that seen in the early Max Payne games). There's plenty of blood and gore as you destroy the huge armies of 'baddies' and top accompany the carnage is a 70's styled soundtrack (again, based on the kind of music featured in QT's films - think Pulp Fictions 'surf-rock' style) which adds a great backing track to the game.
The game does however, get very repeatitive very quickly. And the graphics are good, but they won't blow your mind - more of an excellent PS2 title than a PS3 one!
Once you've done a couple of missions and obtained your sword, you'll start to wonder what else the game could possibly offer - I can only guess that it's not a lot, I haven't finished yet as I got a bit tired of it!
So bad points aside, it does have some geniunely thrilling bits, my favourite so far is the car chase on a busy motorway, you have to jump from car to car whilst shooting at passing by goons! A very enjoyable section of the game. If you've played all the other big titles, then this may be worth a go, but frankly with the likes of Uncharted 2, CODMW2, and Borderlands all coming out around now, it may be better to rent this one!
In this game you play as the character Rubi, a hitwoman who will do just about anything and kill just about anyone. You start off working for a Crimal bosses son within the drug trade. Theny ou get brought in to work for a new guy who is totally cool. And he makes you kill your last boss.
The gameplay in this game revoles around guns and swords generally. You have a small circle in the centre of the screen you use to aim at people and generally all the shooitng is done in slow motion like in strangelehold for those you who played it. When you either jump, slide across the floor, or wall run etc the game goes into a slow motion mode for you to shoot at the enimies and aim better. When you get up close and personal you can use your sword to slash them and get some killer combos.
Graphically the game is qite good, however the style of the game graphics won't appeal to all auidences. The game has an old fasioned movie style feel with the random streaks running down your scren throughout and sometimes going into a weird beszerk mode where everything generally looks blood reddish.
The gameplay is quite satisfying but sometimes it feels to cinematic and repetative that I can't play this game for more than a few hours at a time. However it is a bit different to everything else at the moment and definately a fun game to pick up.
WET was released a few weeks ago and it has been a big seller. The game starts by you tacking the role of Rubi, a hit-woman that will do just about anything, for the right price that is. At the start of the game you are currently working for Trevor Ackers, the son of William Ackers a crime boss in the drug market. During the middle of the game you meet a man named Rupert Pelham and his two body guards Taranchula, the blind woman with deadly guns and Ze Kollektor who has awsome sword skills.
Working for him you are assigned to Bring him Trevor Ackers and he is then killed by Taranchula and when that happens you go on a mission to kill Pelham and hit troupe.
The collectables are monkey toys, there are 5 in each chapter and once you have collected all of them you get am achievement called monkey obsessed.
The graphics aren't that good because as like the old western movie this game has streaks going down the scream. The game gameplay is awsom, you have an inventory of acrobatic moves that you can pull of just about anywhere.
There aren't much weapons to chose from there are only the crossbow, SMG, shotgun and pistols and you also have a sword.
This game is sertainly one that you want to get if you want a challenge although it is very short,, you still get a trill out of it.
Good value of money.
