The First 10 Minutes: Wet

The First 10 Minutes: Wet

A2M's WET was released yesterday by Bethesda and here is The First 10 Minutes, showing the early segments that aren't available in the demo. Rubi is the main character's name and her mission is to simply kill everything living on the screen. Some features have been put in to help the player reach that goal, including slow-mo (á la Stranglehold) and a grand agile movement scheme, like wall running and knee gliding.

Unlimited ammo is given, together with unlimited slow-mo, meaning there's a lot of sliding around and shooting. There are updates to be bought through the campaign, but the gameplay mechanics stays the same - shoot, bring out the katana here and there, then more shooting.

The platforming is a bit tricky and frustrating, many ledges can't be grabbed and climbed. I often found myself having to find a ladder or a lower platform though the ledge above was perfectly within my reach. The dodgy jumping doesn't exactly help either.

Enjoy the video below, which shows some of the game's strong presentation, including grain filters, music and visual effects.

It's a send up to grindhouse. What else would you expect.

This is a very good example of a game trying way too hard to be edgy and cool.

Just playing the demo for this game gave me a serious headache. The grainy filter coupled with a constantly shaky camera was hard on the eyes.

This is one of the worst games I've played this year. Visually it looks like shit and the music is so annoying. Looks like a last-gen game. Using the sword in the game is so unsatisfying. Nothing happens when you slice a guy. There's absolutely no physical reaction whatsoever. The gunplay is a lot worse than Stranglehold, and that was already a pretty bad game.

There's a lot more I hate about this game, but Im drunk and tired and angry for having wasted 15 min on this game.

No thanks, I've go through Stranglehold... the only game that would make me go through this shooting gallery genera again are Good games. probably not the new Dead to Rights, but maybe the new Max Payne 3. (just maybe b/c Remedy isn't doing it)

Pretty cool game for me. Short, mindless with some cool music - if You want to have a break from all the big titles its perfect. Finished it twice, on hard and golden bullet difficulty.

Now that's just awful.

When the game was first announced I had some hopes but the demo shot them all down. Games with ass kicking chicks are best done by the Japanese. See: Bayonetta

Different strokes for different folks. Personally I wont even touch Bayonetta mainly because of the main character which to be honest looks like a cosplay-perve dream and that refers to most jap games. Anyway I dont really get all the hate for (being) WET. Peace .

The vids say it all. I have only myself to blame for subjecting myself to this game when I knew full well how it was gonna be. This game makes me sad for the developers. This thing has almost no identity of it's own. Even that wouldn't be so bad if it was well executed, but alas. Sad....

Played it, Beat it, Loved it. I tend to enjoy playing the flawed gems way more then the mega hit blockbusters. I really don't get the hate this game garners but then people gave Bloodrayne shit too and that's this games closest last gen kin.

People hate this because like Bloodrayne it's a pile of shit. The dev's of this game should look at things like Uncharted 2 and hang their heads in shame. It's embarrassing.

Not every game is Uncharted 2, and if you expect every game to be same level of quality as Uncharted 2 then you'll end up playing 2 games a year. Some people like to have a bit of fun with those type of games.
