While £28 is a good price for a pre-order I would suggest people try out the demo on Xbox live/PSN and judge for themselves.

The graphics are pretty bland and outdated certainly not pushing the xbox 360/PS3 at all.
Gameplay is very like strangle hold with slow motion shooting when you dive and jump about the place and can be a bit fiddly/awkward to control.

It's an okay game I guess if you like stranglehold you'll probably like this but like Stranglehold I can see this quickly becoming reduced in the coming weeks as bigger and better games come out, so if you hold onto your pennies for now this game will be reduced in no time ;)
#5
Personally i hated stronghold. This looks a much better game IMHO, not my usual thing but very Tarantino, great music too. Demo was very enjoyable and i preodrered it a month ago.

I agree. Give it a few months and you'll likely find it much much cheaper. Also try the demo out.

I pre-ordered "Wet" on the strength of the Playable Demo available from 20 August 2009 as I have been looking forward to it since it was announced (around 2 years ago; originally to be published by Sierra Entertainment, then by parent Company Activision, but now by Bethesda Softworks). I pre-ordered from GAME at £29.99 (cheapest place I found with QuidCo of 6% & 600 Reward Card Points off this price).

It has subsequently gone up to £32.99 but because of GAME's pre-order policy I still pay the cheaper price! :)

I agree that the game-play is very similar to "John Woo presents Stranglehold" & that this title did become a bit "samey" as you progressed through the single player "story" mode levels.

However, I think "Wet" has a little more variety (based on what was available in the Playable Demo) because of the change in pace in the intervening stages that link the main "shooter" scenes together.

Indeed, also very Tarantino-esque, especially with the rendering of the 1970s movie-reel effect (like Quentin did with "Death Proof"). I hope the "Wet" soundtrack is going to be released for download :)

BFN,

fp.

PS. "Heat" added.

It's basically Stranglehold with a digitized fit girl in it, I wasn't impressed by the demo at all really.
#13
Been waiting for this for a while now, just a shame GAME has gone up to £32.99 (WHY do you do this game? you did the same with ODST :( )

To all the stranglehold shouters..... yep I can see them being in the same genre, but at the end of the day WET is about basically "playing" Kill Bill or any other similar QT film. To the hardcore strategy junkies I can see it being a bit "samey" but its the only demo I've played through more than twice, simply because Ive enjoyed it.

Do Zavvi take your cash straightaway?

Based on having played the demo, imho this game will be sub £20 within 6 weeks of launch and by Xmas will be included in the 2 for 20 deal at Gamestation.
#15
there are 2 many good games on way out to take my money imo ill wait for a big drop in price

The demo was OK, but I can see the repetitive gameplay getting very tired over the course of an entire game. What was with those QTE too? Honestly folks, you're not making Dragon's Lair here............:roll:

The one will be sub £20 within a couple of months of release.
#17
Demo was entertaining but still, I personally don't think it's worth £28.95. I might give it a go once it falls below £15 (if there isn't any games around that time).

This is the unfortunate effect of people only expecting games containing the words "Call of Duty", "Gears of War" etc to be worth full asking price, and even then most people will not want to pay that.

At the end of the day, if its not your type of game - then fine. Dont rubbish it simply because it isnt your preferred genre. Cries of "this will be 2 for £20 in gamestation in a few months" are useless because:

1. You have no way of knowing
2. All games become cheaper as time goes on bar a few strange exceptions (ODST will no doubt hit sub £30 by Xmas).

If a person has been after this game. this is a good deal - try not to discourage purchasing away from the mainstream just because it isnt HALO!

:oops:
#19
As per a lot of comments on the thread, wasnt massively impressed by the demo and with some of the other titles on the horizon I cant see it being too popular. Very similar to Strangehold which I think is an underrated game, and Id recomment people to buy that over this giving it can be had quite cheaply.

The use of "Quick Time Event" input is included in "Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Conspiracy", & will be included in the forthcoming (2010) title "Heavy Rain".

Did you like the former &/or do you think you will like the latter?

PS. Well said, sniperpenguin.

No, I didn't like The Bourne Conspiracy, but I do like the look of the Heavy Rain, despite its interface, not because of it.

Although they are using QTE's in HR, they do look like they are trying to do someting a bit different with them, and with the great cinematic feel to the game they might just get away with it.

Wet, on the other hand, just chucked in a load of unecessary button presses during a car chase, which detracted from the experience, rather than adding value to it. 'Press X not to die', to quote Yahtzee. Very annoying.

Sniper Penguin may have a point, but I personally would not pay £30 for any video game, if I had an idea that it would be sub £20 in a few weeks time. Market forces man, market forces.

The "Press X not to die" approach can still require an element of skill to get the timing just right during the shootouts, but if you don't like it that's fair enough. A game developer is not going to satisfy everybody with whatever button configuration or interaction approach they choose.

"Heavy Rain" I'm not convinced about at all, regardless of the input method.

Of course the "God of War" titles (to date) all use "Quick Time Events" to avoid dying at the relevant point, and nobody seems to moan about that.


The fact that some people desire any item more or less than somebody else is what makes economic theory work with regards supply & demand, and this results in the market price at any given time.

I wouldn't pay millions for a painting (even if I could afford it), nor thousands for a bottle of wine (ditto), or hundreds for a pair of shoes (sadly, ditto to that at present too), as none of those items interest me.

I may be prepared, say, to pay £40,000 for a car that effectively does the same as any other car in terms of getting you from A to B, but somebody else may only value their own experience in this regards at a figure under £10,000.

It doesn't mean the £40,000 car should be £10,000 because "market forces" dictate that there is more demand at this price, though.

I think what I'm trying to say is that if you want to spend your money on something & you are happy paying that price (or if you can afford to pay that price), then it doesn't make it wrong to do so. I may find it odd, or not appreciate why another person would wish to do that, but it also does not follow that I should put off others from doing the same (unless I could convince absolutely everybody to not buy the product when it was available to artificially decrease the market price).

Following economic theory again, when all the people who can meet the higher purchase price are exhausted the price will need to fall to attract demand again (assuming the supply is constant, or will be able to meet demand).

If all interested parties could be influenced to not purchase at the initial price, the seller may lower the selling price to attract demand.

However, they may not. They may value their product at a certain level, and may feel that it is that price regardless. They may need to recoup previous outlay for the production of the item & the cost of bringing it to market.

If the product's price stays high, & buyers want (or need) the product, eventually they will buy it.


I'm inclined to agree with you about "Wet" though. Yes, it will be able to be purchased for a lower price after the initial few weeks on sale... but that is true of many video games.

The fact that you will be able to buy it cheaper later doesn't make this a poor deal now, nor does it mean the game is not worth buying at a higher price.

You assume a lot. Too much. I shan't respond in kind, however, as I believe people are on this site for the deals, not to spectate puerile arguments.

As well as 2% QuidCo, the "ZWalk" (£3 off £35 spend) voucher code helps here too.

Haha I know where you are coming from.

Many people would argue Battlefield Bad Company is an equal or perhaps even better game than COD4 but it doesn't have anywhere near the same number of players and I suspect this is largely down to the lack of 'Call of Duty' in the title.
I am also expecting Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising 2 to struggle alongside COD: MW2 next month for the same reason although they were a bit daft to give it that release date..

Anyway, spurred on by the £17.95 price Zavvi had I downloaded the WET demo, thought it was crap. The voiceover and menu system did remind me alot of House of Dead: Overkill (which is alot better ;-) )
Graphically it is very poor but that aside there are only so many times I like to shoot an enemy without them dying before I lose interest.
#28
Zavvi dispatched my 17.95 PS3 version today whoop :D

This will be £30ish on the highstreet in a month or so, however if you look at the trends for this year I do not think you'll see a giant drop in price as fast as some believe, if it does not sell well then companies just wont order more. Ghostbusters is still near full price everywhere, and rarely bundled. for example, even Fight Night and Tiger Woods have not reached sub £30 levels very often.
