Rated 0 out of 10 by Kidcat Good game that needs polish.
After playing through the demo I need to say that it was way better than I expected it to be. The graphics look good and the environments, as far as the demo shows are well put together. The big issue I have with this game is the controls. If you are not jumping from cover to cover, the guy moves very awkwardly and unrealistically. Not that it's an issue because this game was made with the character jumping from cover to cover instead of the typical run and gun which is refreshing. That said, the cover system was done well, the only issue with it is that it sometimes gets repetitive. The demo does not go too deep into the story line and the moves are well thought out if not a bit unique. One gripe I have with the moves is that you need adrenaline. It would have been good to see a game that does not require any sort of gimmick to achieve the special moves. All this game needs is a bit more polish to improve the controls.

I just stumbled across the existence of this game a few moments ago and felt compelled to flame. Firstly, the movie was terrible. The premise alone; that you can curve a bullet around someone, is quite possibly the most ignorant idea the action film genre has introduced in decades. I mean simply, it's physically impossible. You can swing a gun as hard as you want you will shoot a straight line regardless. You've got to be some sort of banana degenerate to believe otherwise. Go try it at home with a friend and check out the results! :) So, again the film was garbage. By proxy, this game will be trash. By extension this could only be the stupidest gaming outing since Shaq-Fu. Please all, do you're best to avoid anything to do with Wanted. May the creator of the film be shot in the face seven times and die face down in a pool of his own excrement with rampant aids and legionnaires disease.
Rated 1 out of 10 by ace22 Major disappointment !!!!
Let me start by saying the game was great while it lasted. I was unsure if i should get this game because I really don't movies based games but I gave it the benefit of the doubt. I regret buying this because the story poor the cut scenes were also very poor. The controls and graphics were great and that all this game really had. I love the idea of curving bullets but it made the game way to easy. You never really had to do much work at all and the boss battles were way to short and didn't seem to have any importance in anyway. If you were to compare this game to one like Uncharted or other cover shooters you will be greatly disappointed. Also if your looking for something with replay value don't pick this up because yet again you will be disappointed. You can beat this game in about five hours or less depending. Again this game was done all wrong and I regret buying it.

Ok so i just finished playing the demo, and let me tell you it was pretty freaking sweet :P the cover system in it was great and definitely polished, moving from one object to another was VERY smooth. Now the actual gun play was very nice too, enemies were pretty smart and moved to different covers, the best part was curving bullets (obviously :P) you just hold down R1 and aim this line to make sure it turns white and BOOM HEADSHOT it was pretty cool because sometimes it would do this bullet cam and you could see the guy getting owned. And now for the bad part, i didn't find anything wrong EXCEPT the aiming, but this is totally by preference, i thought the aiming was a bit hard to get used to but once you do it pretty cool. All in all you SHOULD get this game, great action, great gun play, and crazy special moves deserve the 60 dollar price tag :)

Ok this is trying to be like the movie as well as the comic, very strange. Top Cow, the Darkness comics as well as game, is partly behind it. the demo was ok. the graphics were kind of bad. environments not so much. renderings of people are plain UGLY. the game seems like a gimmicky cool idea-with the curving bullets-shootings ok. cover is mediocre. close combat looks cool. it's one of those games that are really fun but not worth the $60 price tag. if you've played Stranglehold you'll know what i mean. not that i'm dissin Stranglehold, i mean i absoltly loved that game it was awesome the story was good, but it wasn't fully worth ** *****. by the way if you want a cheap awesome game buy stranglehold. wanted looks cool but wait til it's cheaper like maybe 30-40. unless you flip out in joy every time you see this game.
Rated 8 out of 10 by tmac0544 good game
first off. all the people that say this game is too easy, try playing it on killer, heatshot only, close combat, and time attack modes then say it is easy. i tested it out by playing on assassin and let the shotgun man shot me. point blank he hits you with the first and forth shot. that is why it is easy. now go to killer and every last bullet hits you if you poke your head out. alright story, like the bullet curving but there are some enemies that you cant just kill with it, it will only stun them. I played it to i got every trophy which took me 5 times of going through the game completely. if you dont try and get the achievements then yes it will be a short game. controls are easy to get use to and the cover system was very well done. enemies get predictable at times on what they will do. hope this helps someone.
Rated 3 out of 10 by Morbid Zombie Disappointing
I was pretty excited for this game, I played the demo and loved it. The game sucks. Ok, ok some things about it are fun and I really think it could have been a quality game, but a few mistakes really ruined it. First of all the game is way too easy. If you feel up to the challenge you can easily run through a level and not even fire a shot, since the melee is so easy and kills so fast. The bullet curving is neat, but does make the game too easy. My biggest issue with the game is the scenes where you have to fight from the mounted machine gun. I have come across two of these so far (I have yet to beat the game) and I find them extremely difficult (I know I said the game is easy, the rest is), in my oppinion there is a difference between making a good challenging level and just making an annoyingly hard level, and these levels are just annoying. The graphics are mediocre, the cut scenes are very few and decent at best, and the story is ok if you were a fan of the movie (obviously it doesn't play into the comic at all). This game may be worth a rental (and even that is debatable), but definitely don't waste $** on it like I did. Let us mourn another game that could have been.
Rated 10 out of 10 by gixxerrider this game rocks
Dont let the bad reviews fool you. This game is really awesome and curving bullets NEVER gets old. They say this game is easy, than play it on killer difficulty. I got it and didn't stop playing until i beat it; and now im playing again on killa. There is no online play but this game has tons of cool trophies and is a game i would recommend to shooter lovers. CURVING BULLETS NEVER GETS OLD, REMEMBER THAT. the melee attacks result in instant death and the bosses are awesome, especially the immortal with halk his face blown off......The story line is awesome and keeps you in the game, very addictive. It begins right after the movie leaves off but unfortunately no Angelina Jolie getting out of a tub. Anyways i don't know why this has to be over 750 characters but just get the dang game its awesome
Rated 5 out of 10 by Captain Obvious Weapons of wha?
I have to say I had a bit of fun playing this game. There are some issues when it comes to moving the character here and there as well as cover issues when the character is slightly off facing. This is a fun game, but short... extremely short (about 4-5 hours of game play). There is also a cut scene missing from the game where 2 guys shoot up a ski lift car. You will enjoy the witty remarks that the main character says. I was also worried about the curving of bullets mechanics. They seemed to work it out fairly well with only minor issues popping up once in a while. The graphics are nice and clean. The only overwhelming flaw that I saw was that it just was over before you knew it. This puppy is a rent... but if you really liked the movie and want something to add to your collection, buy it.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Naruto316 It was a good game.
I rented this game when it came out and i wondered if it was going to be good and it was the graphics were great and the controls were smooth, but I didn't like how it continued off the movie on video game form but the storyline wasn't bad. So i would say rent it for trophys or achievements. Also the company who developed the game "GRIN" they are a horrible game company I'll say cause they made only 3 games and they blew and those games are "wanted, terminator salvation, and bionic command" though wanted wasn't a bad game and bionic command I heard wasn't bad ether from my friends but the company "GRIN" is now shutdown and no longer around cause of how bad those games were and the lack of money they made. I also know this from gamer sites and gaming magizines like gameinformer.
