The demo for Bethesda and A2M's stylised action shooter, WET, is now available for download on the Xbox Live Marketplace.

WET throws you into the shoes of Rubi Malone, a wetworks assassin (thus the name) whose about to be knee deep in dead bad guys after a deal goes sour. The demo weighs in at 631.79 MBs... and in fact, that's all we know at current time. Once you've played it, leave your thoughts on the demo in the comments.

WET is available September 15th and September 18th in North America and Europe respectively. Check out our hands on preview of the title from this year's E3 here.

Queue it up here.

Seriously people, read that line. Don't simply tell us you are going to download it now or later!!!

Demo is pretty fun. First poster nailed it as a Max Payne style game.

What a fun demo, a little short but full of action. I like how they gave us a taste of all the aspects of the game. Sept. 15th will be a fun day. This game and MUA2, dunno which I'll play first.

Need game now, need game now, alongside Brütal Legend this is the most awsome game in a long time! Fuck ODST, Fuck L4D, Fuck Assassin's Creed 2, Fuck Mass Effect 2! Even Fuck DiRT2 and MW2, this is the coolest shit hitting the marked since... I don't know? Max Payne maybe? Still looking forward to the games I mention, but you know, this and Brütal Legend is the coolest, most interessing shit this year. Do you see any 2's or 3's behind these games? Face it, I actually made a great point!

Wow, seeing "difinately", "definetly", and "definatly" was DEFINITELY fun.

Don't they teach vocabulary in schools anymore?

Demo sucked. Was like playing a crap version of stranglehold and hen through in a random colous scene which looked like something out of Sin City. What a letdown. Best demo has to go to Dirt 2.

Its a rent for me. I didn't really care for the combat or the slow-mo system and it takes like a million bullets to kill each person unless you hit them in the head. I also didn't like she only pulls out 2 guns when your in the slow-mo system. Not my type of game.

@20-Why did you say f**k these games but still mention you want them? And the reason there are 2's and 3's behind these games is because they were good enough to produce sequels. So, I'm really not seeing your point...

I thought the demo was okay, nothing I haven't seen in other games. DEFINITELY a rental =P

I actually kinda liked the demo. The controls took a little getting used to, but I think it can be quite fun. Nothing like a little ultra-violence from Bethesda ;-)

i played this demo little under a week ago on psn (booooo me!)
and b4 hand i was worried it would take itself too seriously.
BUT thankfully it didnt it reminds me of so many tarantino-esque moments, and the blood action part where the screen is red, the siren at the beginning of that part is so like the kill bill siren.
awesome demo, car chase ended abrupt, but bring it on, i wanna slide and upwards slash some more mofo mafia fools!!

I thought the demo (game) plays like so many others before it (Max Payne - Stranglehold) except the angle control scheme is way out of whack. The look of the game is cool and all, but im a need more than looks to make me purchase or rent a been there done that video game. I was goin to rent it - but after playin it im glad I didnt put it on my GF list. Thank the gamin gods for demos!!!!

Played it...screams Tarentino. Plays like a grindhouse flick, and that's in a good way. I preordered it before the demo came out (going by how it looked), and after playing the demo, it's definately worth it.

A chick with akimbo weapons and a katana. . . that got me hooked even before the demo on both PSN or XBL. I tried it, loved it definatlly worth the $50 I'm getting it for from Gamestop.

This game reminds me of an old exploitation film straight up. The demo wasn't anything special though until the last sequence. Now that shit was dope!

I had fun. Think the grainy look would get annoying after awhile though. I will most likely rent or purchase it later when it dropped below 30.

I agree with #29. A few peeves:
- Slow-mo system slows the action way too much. A little bit would be okay, but to avoid death you have to use it constantly.
- The combat gets extremely repetitive, you either slide and shoot, jump and shoot, or run up walls and shoot. *yawn*.
- The gameplay feels like it's been done too many times before. (Stranglehold, Max Payne, even Bloodrayne was similar).
- The camera is horrible, I found myself having problems even when in slow-mo to try to get the right angle down.
- Lastly, as stated, it takes way too many shots to kill someone unless you get a headshot.

Overall, I was originally definitely going to add this to my GF list, but now after the demo, I'll wait to see the reviews to decide. I don't expect much better than a mid 70's rating.

*I didn't mention the swords, because I didn't find that to be a very effective way to kill, unless in a small, crowded area. Open areas make the sword pointless.
