I had very little expectations with Wet. The music in the demo annoyed me and the reviews were tepid at best. But I am very happy with my rental of a game that annoyed me only 2x throughout my experience.
Wet has enjoyable gameplay and its Kill-bill-esque story is a fun change from being a space marine or a WWII soldier. I unconditionally recommend it as a Gamefly rental or used purchase.

Redundant, exceptional, just a few words to describe this 3rd person action shooter. At first, it's pretty entertaining, but after a while it just gets repetitive. New moves seem like a waste of time and the damage done just isn't what it should be. Still this game is great for a rental, but not worth buying. No real replay value - some may have trouble just beating it the first time. In my opinion, it could've been better.
When first I glimpsed the promo for this game I thought 'I gotta have this!' So, I basically conducted a stake-out of my local Blockbuster hoping that one day the dolt who had consecutively rented this 'gem' would eventually have to leave the cold comfort of his mother's basement and trudge off to work.
Amazingly ... the game was never returned. So I cried in mourning, but, soon found myself distracted with Call of Duty.
After attaining enlightenment and finally subscribing to GameFly, this game was the first in my queue. I was a bit put-off by the previous reviews, but I wouldn’t be denied! Alas ... they were right.
While this game seems to embody the concept of 'epic' in its approach to combat and acrobatics, general bad-assery ... I just did not love the gameplay. Granted I have a an embarrassing aim/hit ratio, still, it was a bit difficult to grasp the controls. Some of the cinematic transitions leave you with a skewered FP perspective which hinders you jumping from rooftops, walls, etc.
Overall it was an 'ok' game. Wish I could offer something more profound but ... eh. 6 out of 10.
