  1. As the title states I described this game to a friend as “Kill Bill meets Prince of Persia” although I think neither had a lot of gunplay. Sure you can burn through this game quickly in a playthrough and have fun but the real joy is mastering the game’s engine. Its not the most polished game, nor is it the best game engine, but its enough to offer you a sense of accomplishment when you can artfully and gracefully dispatch a group of enemies without giving them a chance to even shoot back. Although Bethesda is not known for its action games (Elder Scolls IV: Oblivion and Fallout 3 being others from the developer) they do a good job with this game.This game has aspects of a platformer, but at its heart its a third person shooter. Between all the acrobatic moves and “bullet time” slow motion the game feels easy to learn but difficult to master. Fighting multiple enemies can be described as a puzzle: acquire the most threatening target and neutralize him then progress through subsequent targets to eliminate them in order to take less damage in battle.The voice acting is done by professional actors, Eliza Dushku voices the lead role and Malcolm McDowell voices the antagonist. The game is bloody, violent and graphic which add to the atmosphere of the game.$60 for this game is a bit much, especially if you’re not going to play through it more than once. I think I picked this up for $40 and perhaps paying that much forced me to play through the game several times (more than I would have otherwise if I had paid less) but as I played more I found that I enjoyed mastering the combat as it has a certain gracefulness to it.This game can be frustrating at times, but most games are. I think this is one of those hidden gems that a lot of people just burn through or gloss over without giving it enough of a chance. This is a game that could possibly grow on you.

  2. WET is an action shooter from developer A2M. You’ve probably haven’t heard of them, since they develop those Hannah Montana and Kim Possible games for the DS: games that are probably not fun to develop. However, they finally got their M-rated kick with WET, a fun little action game that will keep you entertained for a long while.Gameplay: WET’s gameplay is best described as a combination of two games: Stranglehold and the Prince of Persia Sands of Time trilogy games. Now, this actually funner than it sounds. The game’s protagonist, a mercenary named Rubi, dual-wields a variety of firearms as she dives, slides, wall-runs and pole swings. The game’s combat operates around a mechanic called “Acrobatic Slow-Mo,” and while you are engaging in one of the above-said acrobatic moves, the games slows down, allowing you take out enemies in a 360 degree arc (where applicable). Since she dual-wields, Rubi usually targets one enemy automatically with one hand, allowing you to control her other. The whole package is polished, and while the collision detection could have been better refined, the games makes you feel like a expert assassin. She also wields a sword, which unfortunately only has a 3-slash combo (although you can use it on walls when you get the upgrade).There are also few highway chase segments, which are some the coolest looking things ever. You’ll jump around cars and trucks as they explode by you, defying death at every turn. Too bad there are so few of these.Graphics: The graphics have been described as “lackluster.” Now, they’re no Red Dead Redemption graphics, but they work perfectly well for the game, and the game’s environment’s are actually quite detailed. The game’s theme is highly reminiscent of “grindhouse,” (think of Tarantino’s Kill Bill), and as such comes with an optional film-grain filter.Sound: According to the back of the box, the game features an “original 70’s inspired soundtrack.” The music is just as described, and is quite good. Most of the tunes are catchy and well-composed, and you’ll probably find them singing their hooks long after you play the game. The sound effects are acceptable, though the gunshots seem a little muted, and lack the “power” you’d expect.Story: The game’s story is pretty weak, as you’re doing a variety of “who-cares” missions for different people. Even the last level, and the ending, is not really satisfactory. There is one scene, though, that I have to rate as one of the funniest I’ve seen. (I won’t spoil it, but it involves her, a bathtub, and a midget.)Re-playability: The game is organized into missions, and there only a dozen or so of them, so an average gamer could beat in maybe 6-8 hours. The game features no online mode, but it has four difficulty levels, plus a special mode called “Golden Bullets,” which is really fun to play once you unlock it (basically, it’s a one-hit-kill mode). There are also the “Boneyard Challenges” which have a variety of gun-wielding challenges for you to complete.All in all, WET is a solid game, and has a fun and unique combat mechanic. It never feels overused, and I find myself popping the game back in from time to time. If you’ve enjoyed such games as Devil May Cry or God of War, give WET a try.

  3. First, the good: This game has an awesome soundtrack. And it’s used to full effect, giving even the basic game a strong action movie vibe to it. In the better parts of the game, it brings out the sheer “moments of awesome” that is why you play video games like this in the first place. Apart from the sound, the voice acting is well done, the game mechanic itself is pretty slick and the art style & environments are unique. Some of the level design is truly inspired. One level is a car chase on top of the cars, jumping from crashing vehicle to vehicle. One level is skydiving without a parachute, shooting bad guys and exploding barrels (who makes these barrels?). Lots of goodness here.The bad: It gets repetitive after a while. The endless hordes of bad guys who die by the busload as you dive, tumble, swing, slide and flip is beyond ridiculous. I do wonder about a character whose aim improves during a backflip. The challenge mode in the Boneyard is fun, but assumes a knowledge of the level that required much more dedication than I felt like giving.To sum up: Get it. Now that it has come down in price, it’s well worth it. Don’t expect anything too deep, but enjoy the ride. And the music.

  4. One of the most fun games I’ve ever played. The kind of game you will lay back on the couch as it’s not about riddles, the graphics nowadays aren’t great and sure, the story is a little poor but it has the element that most consoles (Nintendo apart) have forgotten about, entertainment. As the tag line says: There’s no business like monkey business! Running on a wall while shooting, somersault in the air while drawing a Katana and ending the combo sliding on your knees firing behind your back at two different targets in different directions. Keep in mind that it is a violent game, if you are not into that sort, avoid it as they are quite generous but if you don’t take that sort seriously, the action in it is epic.Well worth it’s price.4 stars as the game froze a couple times due to the condition, but copied it to the HDD and it’s a blast!
