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with spectacular finishing moves and combos, off-scale violence and old-school charm, and scold the boring gameplay, outdated elements, AI, camera work, voice acting, difficulty jumps and technical problems.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;
- Kazakhstan — from 7,100 to 14,000 tenge;
- 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.
