As unlike-able as a deep sea angler fish in a SS uniform.

Ha! Loved the image of that.

Well I agreed AGAIN at a 100% because the game really isn't for me and yes I hate it

Well I guess I really dont like games with badass chicks. Its not girls job to carry guns or throw big men around with those matchstick-wide arms. But great review anyways.

So very excited for him to review this. Thank you Yahtzee for brutalizing a piece of shit.

"Badass chick" games work well when they aren't solely about badass chicks. For example, Female Shepard in Mass Effect.

Also, everything Pillock said.

The impression I got from the demo was basically everything said in that review.

Never been so bored in my life.

Jesus H Christ, Yahtzee you've done it again, a total riot.

Macgyvercas:

Me too, but I really think he should bring back Terry and Gonad from the "Alone in the Dark" review

Yes, I think he was semi-reusing his Terry and Gonad characters when he came up with Pillock and his Boss. If anyone deserves their own video series, it's Terry and Gonad.

I'm hoping for DJ Hero, ODST, or Brutal Legends. I'm quite interested in Brutal Legends but the Hell Yeah commercial is pissing me off.

Why would people want to play a game that's mostly a cutscene? I hate it because it doesn't have the "sit back and relax" feel of movies due to the sudden action sequence every 15 seconds when you're getting into the cutscene, or the stimulation from playing the game because it gets broken up by cutscenes.

Good review! the game is horrible. Very clunky and cheep. You actually get sick of hearing gun shots!

it's no Demons Souls or Uncharted 2 :)

Note taken, I cant imagine the results.

I tried it.... I've seen worse..
Although the names people call these things, "wet box" was rather obscure =P

I feel wierd saying this, but I actually liked it for most of the reasons Yahtzee hated it...

Not saying I'm an amazing fan of quick time events or anything. I hate it when NORMAL games have random quick time events in them that completely through the player off, or are completely dull and repetitive (007 Quantum of Solace.) However I liked Wet based on it's sheer basis around quick time events.

As for everything else, I guess it has something to do with me being such a big Tarintino Fan. I really liked the feel of the game because of it's similarity to Kill Bill and Grindhouse.

That's how I felt anyway...

Despite how brain damaged it makes you look and how awkward it is to play I actually took a liking to Wet's "cinematic" combat scheme in the same way one in my position could take a liking to Spongebob Squarepants. The sheer idiocy of it all neutralizes any rational or critical thinking you might have left in that decrepit little brain of yours which leaves the quietly giggling moron that is now you free to enjoy the spastic spectacle of it all as you go through, in this case, a series of engaging enough combat scenarios, at least for the mindset you're in.

Best part was the limerick. Just saying.

'Breastsplosions' Perfect

At first I loved this game it was fun then it kicked in and after 3 hours of flying around diving into people it kinda got stale shame this game could of been so much more.

Well,that was pretty funny. Especially "fish in SS uniform" bit. And cinematic gaming is,indeed,not the best way to go. At all.

I don't know, I'm kind of turned off by a game named Wet.

Funny video though I really liked the game. I know you're always doing the same, but the two car section, the falling from the sky section out of a freakin plane part and the rage mode stages were just great. He also forgot the great soundtrack. Don't rely on Yahtzee if you consider a buy, because he has to hate games, because people wouldn't find it funny any other way.

WET is a pertfect rental for a nice evening just having fun. You know, that tiny little bit that games were all supposed to be all about.

Arrogant, rude, surly and psychotic...

That just kinda reminds me of Yahtzee =D

But i thought that was a good review. The bit with Pillock almost made me forget I was watching a review =)

Macgyvercas:

Rag Doll:
I love Pilloc

Me too, but I really think he should bring back Terry and Gonad from the "Alone in the Dark" review

They clearly all work for the same company; some evil game designing corporation where the stupids are given total control over the final product and the smarties can only bang their heads against walls in eternal frustration.

Anyways, thank you, Yahtzee, for once again demonstrating that uncanny accuracy of yours to review a game right when I'm considering buying it. You did it with Dead Space, Force Unleashed, Call of Juarez, and now Wet. Over the course of your reviews you have saved me at least $250. Thanks again.

I just have one thing to say... AWSOME!

Poor Mr Pillock, he trys so hard!

Pillock, HA! That was great! Now I gotta wait 7 more freakin' days! I know he needs a week to play the entire game and then write a review for it but still it's tough to wait.

Well, I loved the game personally.

Nice Kaiser Chiefs reference...Rubi Rubi Rubi Rubi.

I thank Yahtzee greatly for playing these terrible games so we don't have too.
Whatever there paying him, it's NOT ENOUGH!

Then again... He is getting paid to something the rest of us do for free...

Back to the game.

They should have called it "LIMP" as that would have been a better description of what you'll find.

Fun review, and I can understand how he hates it. The thought of playing in slow-motion for 3/4 parts of the game gives me a headache. Then imagine what playing through the entire game will do to my head. Or maybe it's just lack of fluids in my body. But anyway, the demo looked nice, but then the thought occurred to me that the game will be that way through the whole play time.

i saw this game in the store today...nd i jus knew he was gonna review it :DD *proud*

This episode was brilliant. The octopus is appeased.

P.A. Master:

Granted, VATS turned out to be awesome...

No, it really didn't. Anyways, the review was ok - not his best but also not so annoying that I had to stop watching it (yes, there have been some like that).

Its like standing next to a big red button with a sign next to it saying "DO NOT PUSH THIS BUTTON!"...theres no way you can't press it.

But unlike Yahtzee, I recommend doing it :D NSFW tho

birdman_91:
sweetness!!!!!!!
i was wondering if i should buy this or not
lol always come to Yahtzee to save you money on video games

Played the demo for this one at a friend's house, realized it was garbage, and decided to save my money for Brutal Legend, instead. Haven't regretted that choice yet, and I've only owned the game for 1 day. Makes me wonder if he'll review that one soon, since he's a fan of Tim Schafer.

Pretty cool episode. Loved the Pilloc and octopus bits.

What made that video for me was accusing the Wet design team of stealing his style (confusing swearing with wit).
