WET is completely Awesome. But gory.

WET is very gory, but in a way it isn't. The way its styled makes it very unrealistic gore and more satisfying gore than disturbing. I don't see why people say its so gory. Only the cut scenes are anywhere near disturbing. Its still a great game with a load of splattering blood. The woman is dressed up in tight clothing and there is a nurse scene where she wipes her mouth. Lots of language is present too.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (8 ):

While the game drips of style and attitude, it also comes off as trying too hard to be cool. For example, every single time Rubi jumps into the air or slides across the floor, it kicks into slow-motion -- therefore losing its dramatic effect after a short while. The game also contains so much swearing that it, too, loses its edge and comes off as plain silly. While the game follows a somewhat linear path, the game isn't a disaster -- Rubi's acrobatic moves and combat techniques can be fun to master -- but less-than-responsive control often translates to a frustrating experience until you can get over the learning curve. New modes can also be unlocked once the story campaign is completed, adding to Wet's replayability. However, depending on whether or not you like this type of over-the-top violent game, you might not have the desire to return to the action.
