I wasn't really anticipating this game whatsoever and I downloaded the demo on a whim just now and all I can truly say is that I'm speechless. You guys know I barely create threads in the GGD, so if I'm making one right now this early in the morning, you know I'm loving this game.
Wet pretty much had me blown away with its insane, high octane, stylish action that I had no idea even existed until a few minutes ago. It has a Devil May Cry feel, mixed with Max Payne, and a dash of God of War. The presentation and the art direction of the game really captures that Western/B-Movie/Quentin Tarantino feel that I'm getting from the game. I love how the whole thing seems likes its right off a movie reel. I usually hate games that try to incorporate way too many things just for the hell of it but Wet is a different story. I can't see this game being they way it is without having all of these elements in it. My only gripe is that the platforming elements to the game feel very clunky and I hope the final product has very few moments of these or the platforming mechanic gets tweaked before launch.
Guys, I urge you to buy this game. Reserve your copy at GameStop. If you do so before 9/14/09, the game will be sold at $49.99 instead of the usual $59.99. I know I'm going to put my $5 down when I have free time today. Is it just me or did this game come out of left field? I was not expecting this type of reaction from me from this game. I love this feeling!
