Whoo! Okay let me say this game completely blew my mind. I was not expecting this game to be nearly as fun and memorable as it was. Critics be damned! I loved this game. It's just flat out fun. As a huge grindhouse (or technically exploitation films) fan this felt like a fan-to-fan game much like in Brutal Legend. Pros and cons: Beyond the Valley of the Dolls
*Damn good writing. Seriously Eliza Dushku. Do yo' thang
*I like the color scheme. That's gonna sound weird but if you've ever seen an aged exploitation film you know how the colors can just grab a mood. It's pretty neat and WET has got that in spades.
*Action packed. Shooting, slicing, and epic car chases. I hear some people complaining about how the slow-mo slows the game down but I was totally fine with it. It didn't bug me at all. Plus the swords were cooler than the guns anyway.
*Rubi Malone is the hottest woman in gaming. NO ARGUING! Zombie Strippers
*I really wish they gave Rubi more of a history. Why is this sexy woman so pissed off all the time? Seriously.
*No other memorable characters other than Rubi.
*Gunplay felt a little gimpy to me. It definitely could've been tightened up.
I have nothing even attempting to model intelligence this week but I'm having a good week. I just finished these gems and just felt like sharin'. Next week is DJ Hero! DJ HERO!!! And whatever games Gamefly sends my way of course.
