WET employs a very stylish aesthetic that hearkens back to the B-movie homages of filmmakers such as Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez. WET is impressive and innovative from an artistic standpoint, but once you remove the film scratch filter, it's a rather bland-looking game. The problem is that the film scratch filter comes with all the trappings of a movie that clearly has a very low budget. The picture will occasionally be jarred out of alignment for a half-second or so, which could make some players motion sick. However, the desaturation effects of bullet-time and the Killer7 - esque solid color schemes you see in Rage mode help give WET a flavor of its own.
The entire presentation leans heavily on the exploitation film motif, meaning you've got a script that is laden with F-bombs and cheesy one-liners. In addition, there's an awful lot of surf rock that usually kicks into high gear during one of the game's several arena-style battles. Even though the script is 100% cornball, it's amusing to see the lines delivered by the likes of Eliza Dushku and Malcolm McDowell.
