Comely covert operative Rubi Malone accepts a potentially lucrative contract to find a socialite's rebellious son in this Kill Bill-inspired action game from Bethesda Software. A pastiche of '70s action films, Wet is a third-person shooter incorporating both sword fighting and acrobatic maneuvers. The agile and adept Malone will travel to exotic locales across three continents to locate her target, who isn't what he seems. Malone needs to keep her wits about her as she battles countless enemies while running across walls, sliding across floors, and more in stylistic, slow-motion sequences. Athletic moves can also be linked together to create score-boosting, blood-splattering combos. Points earned during the campaign can be traded in for new moves and weapon upgrades to enhance Malone's damage output. Wet's story was penned by Duppy Demitrius, known for his work on television's 24, while actress Eliza Dushku (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Dollhouse) lends her voice to the sultry star. Minimize

Author's Review
Overview

If you are a fan of games with a tough female heroine like I am, then this game is a 'must-have'. There are many complaints about it being repetitive, and although some aspect may remain similar throughout the game, it is still very entertaining.

Gameplay and Controls

The game isn't difficult as long as you don't play in the harder modes. Most of the time, the goal is the 'artistically kill' your enemies in order to gain style points. You use those points to buy weapon upgrades, as well as new moves for Rubi. Trust me, you'll need those upgrades as you progress. They definitely come in handy. The controls are not hard to learn, and this coming from someone that was just learning the controls of the Xbox 360 when first purchasing the game.

Graphics

The graphics aren't the most beautiful aspect of the game, and honestly, I think most of that was done on purpose to prive the 'old graphics effect', according to the obvious film grains and whatnot.

Unique

It may not be the most unique game in the world, but the components that they had tossed into the game was what made it unique to me, such as the really old commercials they threw in randomly throughout the game. I strangely enjoyed watching them.

Alternate Modes

Yes, there are other modes in the game, but you have to unlock them by completing Story mode. There will be a Challenge Mode where you will have to beat the best scores. There's a Golden Bullets Mode where all of your bullets kill enemies in one shot at the cost of Rubi having much less endurance. There are also various difficulty modes, as well as a Boneyard Challenges Mode.

Rage Mode

This was probably my most favorite part of the game--Rubi's trademark rage mode. You will occasionally enter this mode, and when you do, Rubi is relatively unstoppable. She seems to run and strike faster with her sword. Plus, you get the bonus of a completely red screen with the enemies and Rubi appearing in the color black. Their blood will be white. I cannot say what allures me the most about rage mode though. I just know that I loved it every time it occurred.
