3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed - Based on actual game, not demo., 16 Sep 2009

= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: WET (PS3) (Video Game)
When I first tried the Demo on the PSN network I loved it, the style, the action, the grind house feel. It was fantastic. So I was eager to get the game. I managed to get an early release copy of it and honestly I'm disappointed.

The action gets repetitive very quickly, the graphics I was not bothered by in the demo however after prolonged exposure they started to grate on me. The acrobatic side is clunky and not as well set out as I had hoped (Prince of Persia style). In fact the whole game feels disjointed.

However there are some redeeming features, there are cinema adverts at times in the game that really add to the grind house feel, the music is fantastic and the overall style is redeeming. The only reason I'm continuing to play it is due to the fact that I enjoy the style. Now I may be disappointed purely because the demo gave me such high hopes however I think they had all the elements of a great game sitting there and they just couldn't put them together.

I really wanted to enjoy this thoroughly, and it's a shame I couldn't.
