Product Description

Product Description


Based on Universal Pictures' action-thriller "Wanted," starring James McAvoy, Morgan Freeman and Angelina Jolie, the Wanted videogame, Wanted: Weapons of Fate, promises to deliver the same fantastic visual style, in-your-face attitude and edge-of-your-seat action as the blockbuster motion picture.

In Wanted: Weapons of Fate players continue the story of hero Wesley Gibson, picking up the action where the film left off to create an entirely new chapter exploring both Wesley's journey to becoming an unmatched and the epic fiction of "The Fraternity."

Featuring intense third-person action, Wanted: Weapons of Fate will take combat to the next level with iconic moves such as "Curving Bullets" and "Assassin Time" drawn directly from the film, as well as an innovative, multi-layered cover mechanic.

  • Curving Bullets
  • Assassin Time
  • Chained Cover
  • Bullet Explosion
  • Melee Combat
  • Stylised Finishing Moves
  • Hyper-Real Stunts
  • Play Wesley or Cross
  • Sound Effects & Music from the Film

Manufacturer's Description

In Wanted: Weapons of Fate, Warner Bros. brings the box office movie to the Xbox 360 platform. Like the movie, the game revolves around a centuries-old, secret fraternity of assassins that brutally executes people as dictated by the mysterious Loom of Fate. Your destiny is to become their ultimate weapon.

From Big Screen to Video Game
Kicking into action where the hit film left off, Wanted: Weapons of Fate lets you take on the role of Wesley Gibson -- a super assassin and the heir to The Fraternity's legacy of power. Your position has made you a target for a renegade faction of The Fraternity that is dead-set on hunting you down and killing you. In order to survive you must master an arsenal of deadly skills to protect the secrets of The Fraternity and turn the table on those who want you dead.

Bend bullets and Become a Super Assassin
This game employs plenty of mechanics that fans of the movie are sure to love. The most obvious example is curved bullets. During game play you can curve a bullet around objects or corners to hit your target. You can determine the curved trajectory of your bullet so it can bend around columns and take out multiple enemies in a single shot, or use this skill to hit an explosive object and take out your enemy with a blast.

Other cool game play features include a "quick-chain" cover to shield yourself and move through the environment with remarkable speed. The pace of the game and your assassin skills encourage close, hand-to-hand combat for even greater excitement. And as you hone your skills, you can even take down multiple enemies with sheer precision while using Assassin Time.

Meet The Heir
Wesley Gibson -- The Heir -- was once an insignificant nobody, but now he's the successor to his father's legacy as The Killer. After being betrayed by The Fraternity that trained him, Wesley took his destiny into his own hands and exacted his revenge on them all. Now he is surrounded by the destruction he caused with nothing but questions about his heritage, The Fraternity, and the Will of Fate. The answers he seeks are out there, but so is a bullet with his name on it.

The Assassin's Directory
The Russian is The Fraternity's cleaner. Known as Death's Janitor he is vulgar and perverted. He finds pleasure in things that others would find appalling. As the leader of the French Fraternity, The Immortal is not a villain -- he's a fanatic. he will stop at nothing to follow The Code of Weavers with an unwavering, unquestioning commitment. The Immortal is a supremely skilled assassin almost equal to that of The Killer (Gibson's father). Remorseless, it is not his fault that deaths occur by his hands, it is the fault of his victims for being "only mortal," and incapable of escaping Fate's Will.

Cross, also known as The Killer, is the greatest assassin that has ever lived. A member of the Chicago Fraternity, he is a true believer in The Fraternity's tenet of "Kill one, save a thousand." Although his name was never wove by the Loom of Fate, Cross discovered a secret in the Chicago Fraternity that made him the target of those who were once his allies.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad 1 Dec. 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I would give this game top marks for expermenting, as it
uses really cool ingame enhancements , for example
curving bullets is awesome and an easy way to kill enemies that are
anoyingly hiding behind pillars. The movement over box's is sometimes fun, sliding along on your knees in slo-mo whilst fending off enemies.

The game could be improved greatly if it had a better storyline or
a longer storyline, although you can change difficulties and replay it
i personally got bored on the thrid playthrough on 'Killer' difficulty.
I also thought that the game should of had an online play as i completed it, probably in 6-9 hours and had nothing else really to do. Curving bullets should of been toned down slightly as it does make the game extemely easy, although it is fun.

Wanted is a really fun game that i would'nt buy for full price but to buy as a pre-owned item or under £20.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved it 27 Nov. 2009
By Steve
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I totally agree with the people who say this game is short, it is! very short, infact it's probably the shortest game I have ever played but its action packed from begining to end, exciting and fun.. the controlls take a little while to get used to, you always seem to be sticking to walls etc and can't get off but after playing it for 20 or 30 mins I was used to moving around and curving bullets like there was no tomorrow.. so the graphics are very average (actually very heavily compressed) and the controlls can feel arkward at times, this game is just a few hours of mindless fun.. it also has replay value as there are 3 difficulties (all are fairly easy) and then for achievements there are some unlockable modes (headshots).

I loved this game.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Wanted: Weapons of Fate ranks high on my Amazon review (and when I review it on my YouTube show, The Greasy Gamer). It has some interesting mechanics, and decent story and offers some challenge and easiness along the way, having necessary difficulty ramps and tutorials helping players overcome challenges. To say this game is perfect though, would be a lie. Wanted does allow for great gameplay with similar mechanics to the later Splinter Cell games (well, just one and that's Conviction) and even the surprisingly good WET.

If you're looking for some pick up and play, dirty great fun, then this is a recommendation.

Recommended for under £10.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wanted: Weapons of Fate Review 5 May 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
9/10

This game is great and really fun. The story is really cool and easy to get into, and you dont have to have watched the film to play it. The graphics are STUNNING with great player visuals and surroundings. The Gampelay is BRILLIANT because the controls are really quick and so easy to do, the close combat is awsome with some good close ups and the bullet curving is very unique. The only downside to it is that even if it was twice the length it would still be a short game. But it is really fun to complete the story over and over again.

Graphics: 10/10
Gameplay: 10/10
AI: 9/10
Story: 9/10
Length:6/10

4.0 out of 5 stars Short but fun. 25 July 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game has a great engine. The graphics are good and the gameplay is 10/10, curving bullets and slowing down time couldn't be easier and smother.

The campaign took me around 2 days on easy, i took it slow and didn't play it 24/7 for each day. There were achievements for each level i completed on easy, but there are also achievements for each level you complete on normal and hard. So there is some replay value.

All in all i think this game is a must rent and buy if you enjoy the renting and really want to spend time with this game.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wanted: Woefully Short 6 April 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Another not-particularly-bad-movie-tie-in, but this one is definately a missed opportunity given the core elements in the game work very well.

Wanted is a cover-based third person shooter, the USP here being Bullet Curve, the ability to bend your shots. The cover system works extremely well and is probably the best executed I've played so far - good news because you'll spend 90% of your time in cover bending bullets at your foes. Bullet Curve is also very well implemented and a lot of fun.
Graphically it's all good, bar the odd dodgy-looking cut-scene - no slow-down or tearing, nice character models and explosions, decent bosses and locations.

But...

First playthrough only lasts around 4/5 hours. You can unlock different games modes based on headshots or close quarters combat, but there's no real reason to replay other than the achievements. In fact one of the achievements is to complete the game on Killer (hardest) setting in under 1 hour 12 mins! If you want the full 1,000 points you'll have to play through once to unlock the hardest setting and then grind the last level 5 times using level select. Maybe 10 hours in total? Admittedly I glitched the close quarters and head-shot modes to avoid 2 more full run throughs but these modes are nothing more than "perform set number of kills per level to progress".

Luckily this was a rental, not a purchase. I don't have a problem with short games but without any real replay value or multiplayer Wanted misses the mark. A shame because I rather enjoyed playing it!
