Is it just me or does this game play a lot like Strangle Hold?

Posted by AjayRaz

so i'll have to say meh. 

Posted by chilipeppersman

too bad its not coming out on pc

Edited by Tovan

Too bad the demo totally unsold me on the game.

Posted by Jayzilla

i have seen that type of game way too many times now. i think being up against arkham asylum is really going to hurt this title as well.

They inventing air jackin..... I mean car hopping....I think not. This game could be ok or really bad. We will have to  wait and see.

The film grain is just awful. I understand they're going for the whole grindhouse feel, but it just looks horrible. They even used it in the interview segments. Hopefully you can turn it off.

Demo?

@Whiskeyjack86:
It is, and you can. I remember reading about that in an interview.  
I'll wait for some reviews but it seems like a pretty lame game.

First part of the demo was horrible. The second level actually had me deciding that the game could be good. The car hopping scene after that threw my decision back the other way.
 
Feels like Max Payne and The Matrix.

No game developers, you don't *need* a vehicle section...

it looks like crap up close, the faces are... strange

Posted by Dudacles

The demo did not make me want this game. It seemed like an even more clunky version of Stranglehold.

@Cirdain: There's a demo of WET on the PS3, not sure if it's on the 360 as well.

Wanted to like it, love the 'grindhouse' estique, but the demo was more frustrating than fun. Poor targeting, sloppy controls, poor visual clues to what is possible all while having a protagonist that is as tough as tissue paper. When the player is required to do stunts over and over again just to maintain constant slow motion in order to survive it stops being fun and becomes a chore. No sale.

'We came up with a concept called car hopping'?!?! Pursuir Force springs to mind.

Posted by ryanwho

Automatic slowmo sounds awful.

Posted by Led_Bear

Tried the demo version and it sucked balls.Period

Edited by emkeighcameron

That is fucking brilliant marketing right there. I'm serious.
 
Having a hot chick, say "Release...." as the last word in the trailer? Brilliant.
 
But yeah, it looks like crap.
 
Edit: because I can't sepll worth a dick

You should at least try the demo.
Posted by Ubiquitous

As has been said by several others. Demo = Massive Fail.  
 
Spend a little more time on your next new IP Bethesda... In fact spend more time THINKING about your next new IP. 
 
Although after this is released I'm not sure when they would even be thinking about another new IP. Sad really.

I second what art of war said..

Posted by wilsham

Just played this demo, have to agree with the others above, terrible. Seeing them talk about it as if its something new and exciting is kinda painful as well, when it seems like its pretty much ripping off Stranglehold.

Posted by Xiemos2

They abbreviated their company name to A2M? Really? That's terrible..

I did play the demo. Five times. I think it's really fun.

Maybe Bethesda has to make a garbage game every now and then so that the bad quality doesn't leak into the titles that they give a shit about, like Elder Scrolls or Fallout 3.

Posted by virtorio

Is WET short for Quentin Tarantino: The Game

Posted by giyanks22

Looks pretty good. Interested to see some reviews.

i hate it when non-gaming actors try to talk about games and have no idea what they're talking about

yeah pretty much exactly what I thought a really lame Stranglehold copy and not much reason to buy it.
Posted by jergrah

I had fun with the demo - but I also enjoyed Stranglehold.  Ill definitely snag a copy of this when it hits the $35 range.

Posted by JoeOE18

That car hopping bit reminds me too much of bad Matrix sequels and albino dreadlocks.

Hell yeah, Stranglehold was awesome, it was essentially max payne, but i totally dont think that matters, so i bet...im gunna like this game. 
 
But im honestly not sure if i should trust the average user opinion saying its bad because, its the usual predictable crap...but it could go either way, i've not played any demo so it is totally in the air. Maybe it's another Superman Returns demo? that game was...somethin else!

Bethesda making an action game was probably destined to fail.

Stranglehold < $13 
 
Sorry, WET.  I've been there, and I've done that.

One big thing I look for in modern character-action games I play is how well the gameplay can emulate  the style  of an action movie.  Such games have a knack for not only being fun and challenging to play, but making the on-screen action unfold with the flashy style of an over-the-top action movie.  While this game seems to come complete with said action movie swagger, the flashy portions I'm seeing in this video look suspiciously scripted while most of the gameplay looks like a standard 3rd-person shooting gallery.  I might even go so far as to compare this to an on-rails shooter since the big focus seems to be shooting while moving along obstacles and in slow-motion.  Reminds me a little too much of Stranglehold.  Though the game definately has its style fleshed out, but my expectations are modest at best.  This is a rental for me.

Anything with that Elizabeth chick in it is "B" material.  I'm sorry, but she's horrible in everything she's in and doesn't add anything.  And everytime the dev's opened their mouths i just got angry...
 
And to anyone thinking about buying this, don't. The demo sucks balls, let Bethesda focus on what they actually do well.  Or at least that new brink game they're making.

Posted by hwarang

I played the demo and I liked it. I like the art style too. Nothing revolutionary but I really liked the gameplay. 

Posted by FinalDasa

has potential but in the end it really looks like a matrix wannabe

Played the demo and loved it, definately getting this one.

 Maybe this is Stranglehold for the ladies ;) Played the demo, felt a bit clunky to me, will be keeping an eye on it

Posted by PuppyKisses

Looks like a PS2 game.

So because you thought it was fun and most people didn't, we should go fuck ourselves?
 
You make little to no sense whatsoever.
Posted by Drew_the_Third

I agree with most of you, it looks really standard and the "vehicle section" looks overly scripted and no fun at all.  
 
Man i'm REALLY getting tired of slow-mo , bullet-time phases.....except in Fallout 3 where it was used in a different and interesting way. 
 
ELDER SCROLLS 5! Just hurry and start on it already Bethesda! 
and yeah, that chick at the end REALLY finalized my decision of NOT buying this. Bet she'll never even play it herself.
Posted by 100eyes

Based on the demo, this game is garbage.
 
There's basically 3 sets of moves; wall-run, jump/dive, and slide. You'd think they'd be smart enough to make it so you could chain those moves continuously without effort. Nope, it all feels klunky and I felt I had as much control as if I was playing with prosthetic limbs. The 'quick-time' sequences that have you jumping between cars are so easy and uninvolved it's like watching that car chase scene on the highway from The Matrix over and over again.
 
And if you want a fun game, take a drink everytime this game reminds you of Kill Bill.
