"Wanted: WoF" Demo Thread (Impressions)

#1 Posted by Vinchenzo (6192 posts) -

Please post here when you want to express your opinion on the new Wanted: Weapons of Fate demo.

I just finished it, but am not entirely in the mood for writing more than a quick overview. When you boot up the demo, you'll be treated to three different tutorials: basic combat, how to curve bullets, and advanced techniques to movement. These are more than just a demo, and has some dialogue reminiscent of that from the movie. The tutorials can be wrapped up in about 3-5 minutes per.

Next you can obviously choose to play the story mode, where you'll be treated to the same level as was viewed in Brad's quick look. Go ahead and watch it if you don't feel like downloading the demo, it's the same exact thing. I feel the gunplay is solid, and enjoy curving bullets. The melee executions are handy, and overall the game seems worthy of at least a rental.

The only entertaining part of the demo is shooting the fire extinguishers making the doors blow out sucking nearby enemies to their doom.

So looking at the comments here, I'm still not sure. Is it better than the lame movie its based on?

i didn't think that it was going to be that good, but then Funky Student told me that it was awesome so i'm obviously buying it.

Man, I was really looking forward to Wanted. I thought it looked totally awesome. Everyone I know that saw it was telling me how cool it was. I finally saw it a very weeks ago and was immensely disappointed. It was basically a lame Matrix rip-off. The only redeemable qualities were the keyboard bashing, hot Angelina Jolie and her naked ass, and Morgan Freeman's great line at the end. All in all, it really let me down. The only few other cool parts in the movie were all shown to death in the trailers.

Meh, whatever floats your boat. I enjoyed it more than the Matrix, actually.

Man, that just gave me an interesting thought. Imagine if Angelina Jolie would have played Trinity in the Matrix. That could have been phenomenal! Dude, and then you throw Monica Bellucci into the mix, and oh my God, high five Neo!

Yo!! The game takes place AFTER the events of the film, u hear'n me honky? So technically its not based on the film, which was a smart move in my FRICKIN AWESOME opinion.

It was better than I thought it would be

I dont like how when you begin to move your aiming cusour it moves really slow then speeds up all of a sudden.

#19 Edited by shadows_kill (3165 posts) -
