its been quite a long time since ive posted so ill start with this
i got the game WET the other day, played it, and beat it. i thought it was a great game with a new, interesting concept of combat. you either slide on the ground, jump in the air, or run on walls to activate "acrobatic slow-mo" to effectively dispatch all of the enemies around you. one of your guns automatically aims for one enemy, while you manually control the other gun to shoot either the same enemy or another. there is also a sword for quick up close kills. and then there are some sequences in the game were the protagonist kills a person and gets her face covered in blood triggering "rage mood" where the world is presented in noir style with bold red, black and white. all your attacks are stronger, faster and you have a chain kill counter.
but one of the most stand-out features of this game for me was the music. most of the music wasnt made by the game's composer but are songs from actual artists. all of the music has a 70's western/hard rock/rockabilly feel to it, really bringing out the western feel
here are a few screenshots
overall, i think it is a great game. of course i didnt cover all the bases but i would like to here wat u guys think. :shoot2:
Sounds pretty interesting, I might have to give it a shot now. It almost sounds like Quentin Tarantino's idea of a game.
This looks like the type of game I would LOVE.
I like the gameplay concept... The whole slow-mo thing sounds like not only will it be fun to control, but look awesome too. I like the rage mood... Blood on the face triggers it? That's brutal.
I especially really like the look... Noir makes me happy... And that combined witht the music makes for a fun game for me!
Thanks for posting this... I might have to go grab the game!
this game is addicting. when i got the demo, i couldnt stop playing it until i got the real game. if you want an example of the music here are a couple of songs. these songs were in the demo, but there are obviously many more songs like these. these songs will get you pumped for some killing
YouTube - WET Battle song, Insane - The Arkhams
The Undead West-Knock Galley West
YouTube - WET Soundtrack - The Undead West
and here are a couple more screenshots. and one of the protagonist so you can see what she looks like. her name is Rubi by the way...
Ohh thanks for the links.
I actually really like the music... It does seem to set the mood just right. Music is a huge factor for me with games... From an artistic persepctive.
I also really like the plot of the game, from what I've read. ^.^
I'm digging this already, and I haven't even played it yet!
Again, thanks for sharing!
hey no problem. im glad to offer my insight.

and all the music is in the extra content so you could listen to it and see who made the songs. problem is, you probably wont find many of those artists easily on itunes or something like that...
:laugh: I love music that makes you feel like that while playing a brutal game.

My neighbor has WET... And he let me play... And I am hooked. :2thumbs:
The movement, controls, battle system, everything is very seamless and easy to learn. The graphics are stunning... And I love the noir feel to it. I LOVE the music paired with all that... The game has amazing atmosphere. I was actually pleasantly surprised with it, even though I knew I would love it! haha!
