based on the film from the movie stars with Angelina Jolie and Morgan Freeman wanted Wanted: Weapons of Fate the video game is a third-person shooter disappointing game that lacks off of game play and the game is only fours long making this game not enjoyable this game is only good for renting and this game is not for kids this game is only for adults and parents you need to know that Wanted: Weapons of Fate has intense violence and a lot of constant strong language used throughout the game

idk about this video game

my mom bought this game for me because she knows i love shooting games...i try it out and the graffics are great it's just that the story is to short and u don't really know what your chasing after until the end but it sometimes doesn't even make sense even in GTA u don't know what your chasing after or who it is your trying to kill. the cheats are fine too. i returned it after 3 days

Is It Any Good?

Like most video games based on a movie license, Wanted is full of flash and low on substance. Initially, playing as Wesley is entertaining. The controls feel comfortable, especially for those well-versed in Gears of War. Each of the abilities are fun to use as well. The first few kills notched with a curved bullet should make players feel like skilled marksmen.

Wanted falls short in the single-player experience because it is one-dimensional and shallow. Nothing Wanted accomplishes is original or clever. Players only have access to handguns for the majority of the game, with the exception of a couple of uninteresting moments involving a turret or sniper rifle. Players encounter the same handful of enemies repeatedly, each of which are easily dispatched thanks to the refillable adrenaline meter and constant use of the slow-motion attacks. Add to that a short story and the lack of multiplayer and you've got a shooter that's not above average.
