An excellent deal here from HMV for anyone who simply fancies a bit of high velocity shooter action. You can grab a copy of Wet for the 360 for just £6.99 at the moment; this is the cheapest I have ever seen it and, with the next best price coming in at £9.79 from Amazon, you stand to save nearly £3 compared to shopping elsewhere.
Rubi Malone, voiced by slobbering-fan favourite Eliza Dusku, is a manic, foul mouthed mercenary on a routine job that, shockingly, turns out to be not so routine after all and soon she finds herself on the run and on the hunt for the man who betrayed her.
Wet is a very over the top shoot-em-up which focuses on crazy acrobatic stunts, bullet-time shoot outs and even some sword-fighting action here and there. It's certainly action packed; Rubi packs a vast arsenal of varied weaponry to play with and is a very nubile young lady indeed, able to perform some really rather ridiculous stunts without once getting sweaty and flustered. This is all good fun but is still not quite enough to keep the gameplay from feeling repetitive and the lame boss fights are abig disappointment throughout proceedings. The graphics are pretty rough and the story and dialogue are cheesy as Hell but the soundtrack is exciting and suits the game perfectly.
It's no classic and you're unlikely to find yourself leaping back for more after its over but Wet offers some fast paced fun and its well worth a playthrough at this price.
