Quoted from WET Reviews:Check out these quotes from WET reviews & previews
"Wet is what I imagine came out of someone saying "let's make a list of stuff we think is really cool about Quentin Tarantino movies and put it all into this videogame we're making." Wet's '70s cinema-tinged presentation, over-the-top weapon play, and the seemingly intentional plot elements it shares with Tarantino's Kill Bill make this a slick-looking game, but the sometimes frustrating controls, over reliance on quick-time events, and lack of online leaderboards make it suffer from a slight case of style over substance. In Wet you follow the exploits of Rubi Malone, a tough-as-nails gun for hire that's got a vendetta against one of her former employers who double-crossed her, and will stop at nothing until she kills him -- sounds kind of like Kill Bill, right? With a title like "Wet" and a leading lady that's emblazoned across the cover I was expecting this to be another over sexualized game where the female character is just an object to fuel fanboy fantasies. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised when I found that wasn't the case. Never was there a lingering shot on the heroine's backside, nor did Rubi ever utter one phrase of suggestive dialogue; the only time you even see her wearing anything less than a leather jacket and long pants or refer to any kind of sexual act is in a scene during the second half of the game, and there's certainly nothing sexual about it. Kudos to A2M for not succumbing to the pressures of crafting a female lead that's not merely an object."
"While I was sold on the concept of WET -- a chick shoots and slices up thugs in a grindhouse-inspired action game -- I wasn't exactly sold on what's arguably a game's most important aspect: How i..."
"Bethesda Softworks are not exactly known for their third person shooters, being more famous for titles such as Morrowind and Oblivion, both of which were highly acclaimed. So WET is somewhat of a surprise, it's a departure from their usual RPG game style, and a shift towards something entirely different."
"When you're done with the story, you can replay each level to try to beat a target point score or take on the obstacle-course challenges, though the latter tends to expose some of the game's weaker elements. Wet isn't a particularly pretty game, and a lingering awkwardness can interrupt the acrobatic platforming from time to time. Fortunately, you'll usually be too busy enjoying the action to notice. The combination of auto-target, free aim, and slow motion makes combat relentlessly entertaining, and the vigorous soundtrack and great pacing give the game a satisfying sense of momentum. Though there is a certain roughness to the action, Wet is still a raucously entertaining adventure. "
"As Rubi you're thrown into a world of murderers, double-crossers, drug runners, impossible action scenarios, and conspicuously dressed villains. There's a film grain effect skittering across the screen the entire time, which can be turned off, but while active reinforces the B-movie angle of the plot, dialogue, and characters. Rubi is wronged and angry, and the game in an appropriately inelegant manner smashes together pieces of story that move you through a series of combat arenas and quick-time event action sequences. "
