Water, water everywhere! ZedTwo has created another game! This time it is for
everyone. It is a puzzle type game. Players try to get rid of water by using items
and events. A 3D platform makes this more interesting. It is like any puzzle game,
move the falling stacks to trap rainwater.
But you don't think it is that simple, do you? And your right. It is more challenging
than you think. There are natural disasters that don't allow you to make a perfect
dam. Build a wall to high, you'll cause an earthquake. Uppers raise the land under
their shape. Downers make existing holes bigger. Fireballs evaporate water, make
land lower depending on where they land. There are many other things or events in
this brilliant game.
Graphics: 9 out of 10
Talk about impressive! Wetrix's graphics are excellent! You won't believe the
stunning images. Everything is based on the platform of mountains with high
peaks, and valleys with low ground surrounded by clear water. Everything is totally
3D in this game. I think this is the best game after Banjo Kazooie.
Music and Sounds: 9 out of 10
There is not much to say here. Basically, Wetrix is a game with high performance
sounds. It is not like the game Super Mario 64 which continuously plays music and
has a sound to every movement. Even though the sound in this game are good, we
cannot rate it the best. This game is wonderful, but it needs to improve its music.
Not many people can be accustomed to these kinds of sounds.
Game Challenge: 10 out of 10
This is definitely the hardest game I have played. The game is not like Tetrisphere
where all you have to do is stack a full row. In this game, you have to get rid of
water by using falling natural disasters. Most games are not this hard. In Super Mario 64 all
you have to do is find some stars. None of the fighting games are this hard. I guess
only some RPGs and first person games like GoldenEye 007, and Quest 64 are more
challenging than this ZedTwo game.
Game Play Fun: 8 out of 10
This game can be represented very fun. It is very exciting watching a few bombs
drop, and a rainbow appear. Some games can cause frustration, but this one doesn't.
This game makes people happy to play. ZedTwo created this game like no other. Even
I get frustrated when playing Super Mario 64. Instead, this is a colorful, bright, and
even funny game. This is not one of those easy games, but it does not make you mad
when you lose. It is fun to me because I like the full control of blocks.
Frustration: 1 out of 10
What can I say, no one gets frustrated here. Maybe sometimes, but it goes away easily.
Game Value: 10 out of 10
With great graphics, sounds, totally fun, and almost no frustration, this is definitely
worth the price!
Overall: 9.5 out of 10
