I was expecting a little bit more from this game... The controls were simple, leveling up your weapons was simple enough also. It reminded me of DMC in a western kinda way. The voice talents were awesome, however the story line was extremely lacking. It just throws you right into the action, with no background information about Rubi. We only know she is an assassin, and she was double crossed. Ok thats great, how did she become one? Why did she become one? you know those questions. If your looking for an in depth game with an excellent story, this isnt it....
I haven't played a female character this powerful since Nariko in Heavenly Sword. I love Lara Croft but she's got nothing on these two women!
I still think Nariko is the most powerful character i've ever played as but it was a whole different setting. Heavenly Sword was a melee focused game while Wet is shooter based with a lot of everything thrown in.
This game is all about style, and it is loaded with it. It looks like it was a film made in the 70's. There are broken looking film projector scratches that cover the screen. I read a review that said it was distracting and made them feel sick so they turned it off. I didn't even know you could turn it off, i never would have thought of it. I did not feel the same way at all. For me they actually contributed to the style of the game. Due to the scratchy film look and the games style in general it makes the game time-less in my opinion. The graphics are obviously dated but because of the style of them, the really cool camera angles and the scratchy film projector look, the graphics did not look out of place to me. I'd bet the game looks terrible if you turn off the projector film tho.
You run along walls while shooting at enemies, slide across the ground where Rubi can spin completely around with her upper body firing at people behind her as she slides forward, and do some neat somersaults just from simple jumping and of course there's pole vaulting while blasting away. You duel wield most of the guns you get, one gun auto targets enemies as you fire and the other one you aim. I did have trouble aiming throughout the entire game. There's no aim assist on the non automatic targeting reticule and as you're doing all these tricks the camera is moving while you're trying to aim and the enemies are moving so it's a bit of a pain.
This is just for pure action fans that wanna kill people in style.
