Dead disappointed critics and players, and soon after the release it also went up in price

As promised, on February 14, 110 Industries and Japanese studio Soleil (Valkyrie Elysium) released the old-school action movie Wanted: Dead. The game received average ratings, but this is not the only reason for disappointment among gamers.

By the time of publication, Wanted: Dead had 45 reviews on Metacritic: the PC version had 19 reviews (average rating – 58%), PS5 – 15 (57%), and Xbox Series X and S – 11 (59% ). The average game rating is 58%.

Reviewers praise the combat system with spectacular finishing moves and combos, off-scale violence and old-school charm, and scold the boring gameplay, outdated elements, AI, camera work, voice acting, difficulty jumps and technical problems.

In general, critics agree that Wanted: Dead could have turned out to be a better game, and in its current form, it is unlikely that most modern gamers will like it. As opposed to a very specific niche audience.

Steam users are also not happy with the novelty: according to the results of almost a hundred reviews, the Wanted: Dead rating on the Valve site is 51% (“mixed” reviews). “Brilliant mediocrity”— summed up Cinnamon.

In addition to the immediate qualities of the game, gamers were also disappointed by the sharp rise in the price of Wanted: Dead on Steam shortly after release. In the Russian segment, the game is not available, but abroad the price in some cases has increased significantly:

  • Turkey – from 92 to 510 lira;
  • Argentina – from 650 to 3800 pesos;

  • Ukraine — from 699 to 1125 hryvnias;
  • Poland – from PLN 215 to PLN 275;
  • Europe – from 50 to 59 euros.

Wanted: Dead is out now on PC (Steam, EGS), PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S. Players take on the role of secret police squad leader Hannah Stone to uncover a massive corporate conspiracy in Hong Kong of the future.
