Wet introduces gamers to Rubi, a beautiful and graceful assassin voiced by Dollhouse star Eliza Dushku. And like Dushku's Dollhouse character, Echo, Eliza is a problem fixer, but she does this by utilising her acrobatic and swordplay skills. Rubi agrees to find and retrieve the wayward son of a millionaire... and things get interesting. Mislead and deceived, Rubi end up on the run, desperate to find the man who started all this chaos.
Wet is a visually impressive, super-stylised action game that combines the acrobatics of Mirrors Edge with the sword wielding action of Devil May Cry, then throws in lashing of Kill Bill style mayhem to create something unlike any game before it.
Rubi, under your control, undergoes double-crosses. Makes and enemies and allies. Fights with guns and swords, leaving a huge body count in your wake in an adventure that spans three continents. Rubi rarely keeps her feet on the ground, combining her arial and wall-running skills with her expert swords(wo)manship to perform deadly, dramatic and impressive moves. Like in Kill Bill's tea house scene, enemies just keep coming, and by linking her moves, Rubi keeps on taking them down, resulting in non-stop action and an astronomical body count. At certain points, Rubi sees red, and enters Rage Mode - the graphics all turn red and white, and it all looks very stylish and cool.
Wet concentrates on creating a compelling single-player experience, and has no multi-player options whatsoever. But this should not prevent fans of stylish action from getting a huge dose of their favourite gameplay.
