Mike Rossell writes: "Rubi Malone lives on a dusty old junkyard in the desert. She's a cold, efficient gun for hire. Understandably, she has no sense of humour. The suggested wetness of her game then is derived not from the places she inhabits, nor any nuance of her personality. Rather, the title refers to "wet work", a euphemism for murder or assassination, alluding to hands literally wet with blood.
It's a premise that the game's developers saw fit to exploit in a third-person jaunt, broadly echoing the action of Kill Bill and going so far as to model its whole aesthetic on the grindhouse cinema of the 1970s. As Rubi shoots and slashes her way through a legion of adversaries (and no, it's not worth explaining the story), the screen flickers and tears like burnt celluloid."
