Review Wanted: Dead (PS5) - A Fascinating Mess of an Action Game
Dead, but not buried
Jeez, where do we even begin with Wanted: Dead? It feels like an action game from another age, harkening back to the many lower budget, madcap brawlers that found cult acclaim on the PS2 and PS3.

News Wanted: Dead Brings Big Bargain Bin Vibes in PS5, PS4 Trailer
Will you love it on Valentine's Day?
This Wanted: Dead trailer sure is a thing. Where do we even begin?

Bullets and blades abound
We have had our eye on Wanted: Dead, from the makers of Ninja: Gaiden and Dead or Alive, for a while now, and so today's offering was a real treat. We got an extended look at gameplay in a new video, a full half-hour of guns, gore and goons getting clobbered. Come for the cringy dialogue, but stay for the over-the-top...
News Wanted Dead's PS5, PS4 Box Has a Bit of Everything on It
Cats! Tattoos! Swords!
If you’re a fan of scrappy old character action games, the kind of weird releases you’d find in bargain bins at hardware stores for the PS2, then you’ll want to add Wanted Dead to your wishlist.

With the unforgettable Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance enjoying something of a renaissance of late, there’s probably a sizeable market for Wanted: Dead after all.
