Amazon.com

Bulletstorm is a first-person shooter (FPS) in which players find themselves stranded on a planet that although once an adult-oriented paradise planet, is now hell incarnate, complete with savage mutants and flesh-eating gangs. The goal is simple: survive, escape the planet and pay back the SOB who sent you there. Additional features include deep 2-4 player support, a wide variety of ways to defeat enemies both large and small, an impressive arsenal of weapons and a Marvel Comics written storyline.

Story

Set in a futuristic utopia, an elite peacekeeping force thwarts the rumblings of civil war. But deception within the ranks has caused two members of the most feared unit, Dead Echo, to strike out on their own. Now washed-up mercenaries turned space pirates, Grayson Hunt and Ishi Sato's latest quest for a quick buck goes south. Stumbling upon their ex-commander's warship, the Ulysses, Grayson engages this behemoth head-on. Outmanned and outgunned, his only option is to ram the Ulysses in a suicidal bid at redemption. Narrowly surviving a crash landing and now stranded on the abandoned paradise planet of Stygia, Grayson and Ishi find themselves surrounded by hordes of mutants and flesh-eating gangs. They survive on two objectives: get off the planet alive and exact revenge on the man who sent them there.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hearkens back to classic FPS style April 12, 2011
By Stasis
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Bulletstorm is a breath of fresh air (or recycled from the past?) in the FPS market that's overflowing with "gritty" war shooters; that's what the developers set out to create, and I think they accomplished their goal handily.

People Can Fly brought back the old style of crazy, fun, explosive weapons that used to be a staple of the FPS genre - in this case, a revolver that can fire explosive flares; a sniper rifle with bullets that you can steer; or a gun that shoots an explosive chain which can create booby traps out of objects in the environment or your enemies, and a handful of others - plus the ability to kick, and the "Leash", which allows you to pull enemies toward you (setting in a temporary slow-motion effect) or launch them into the air. Combining all of these together racks up points that allow you to purchase ammo for your better weapons, charged shots, ammo capacity upgrades, and just generally aim for a high score. Creativity is a big part of the fun, but it's pretty easy to fall into a simple kick-and-then-shoot everybody regimen. Staying sharp and mixing up how you kill your foes keeps things interesting, but if you just do things the easy way then it has the chance to get stale.

Single player campaign length leaves something to be desired, as it only lasts maybe 6 to 8 hours. I didn't really keep track. But you kind of gradually get a handle on your own playstyle and learn the tricks of the game in your first playthrough, so a second playthrough at least still feels fresh, and there is Echoes mode in which you run through individual levels of the game and try to rack up a high score, plus a multiplayer mode for those so inclined; I wasn't.

The story isn't particularly riveting, but the ridiculously coarse dialogue is an...

4.0 out of 5 stars Uber Epic + Oldschool FPS = Instant Classic February 10, 2012
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you can get past "Games for Windows Live", you'll be good to go. The DRM for PC is the one drawback to this game, and you can see that it's reflected in most one or two star ratings. But, I would have to disagree with their ratings. If I was rating GFWL I would give it a one star too. However, we are attempting to review the actual game - not the crappy publisher.

The game itself is gorgeous, epic, intense, hilarious, and extremely entertaining. The only game that makes me laugh as much is probably Portal 2. The graphics definitely aren't dated. The animations and "hugeness" to everything was incredibly well-done. There's something to be said for graphics like these vs graphics seen in a game like Crysis 2. To me, Crysis 2 had incredible graphics, but it had no real style and was a pretty joyless experience to me. Bulletstorm is definitely not joyless. It's a riot. And it's pretty. For a day or two, I was a kid again - and I loved it.

Of course, this game is NOT for kids. But in a small way, it almost makes you feel like you're being "naughty" just for playing it, with all of the adult language and innuendos involved. I highly recommend the game on all counts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, cheap fun! June 1, 2012
By Triakel
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The initial screenshots and review of Bulletstorm turned me off. So did the opening sequence in which the main character kicks a pleading, bound prisoner into an airlock (which is promptly depressurized). I quit playing at that point, thinking I was in for the gaming equivalent of a Joel Eszterhas film, or maybe a crasser version of Duke Nukem Forever.

I was mostly right. But I started playing anyway after reading my fifth positive review. The game cost me $5. Why not?

Twenty minutes into play-attempt #2, and I no longer cared. The game was crass, mindlessly violent, and chock full of action-movie one-liners. (And since I played on PC, certain sequences -- like "walking" across hanging rope ladders with my "hands" by pressing different buttons -- were distractingly consolized.) The game was also ridiculously fun.

Remember fun? I have maybe 100 games in a collection built up over many years. Probably half of these are first- or third-person shooters. Many of these shooters are well produced, graphically impressive and technically brilliant, but few are *fun*. Bulletstorm is fun in the way Doom was back in 1995. Or the way Unreal Tournment was in 1999. Or the way I always wanted Serious Sam to be. Or the way the first Iron Man movie actually was.

Bulletstorm should be terrible. The storyline is hackneyed, the characters are stereotypes, the violence is ridiculous, etc., etc. But the *gameplay* is a delight, and the visuals are gorgeous. I giggled like a kid as I kicked enemies off ledges, lassoed exploding barrels and slammed them together in creative ways, shot sticky bombs into crowds of nasties and watched them ricochet off each other before erupting into a confetti of guts and armor.

I said the game was crass, and it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Brilliant Post-Marxist Satire April 1, 2011
By Whisper
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
At first glance, this gem of 21st century Marxist-Leninist dialectic appears to be nothing more than a violent game, which tells the simple story of large, burly men who wished to be professional wrestlers, but failed the intelligence test, and took up soldiery instead.

However, upon closer examination, a critique of post-cold-war socialist capitalism quickly emerges into the light, bearing a message not simply of condemnation, but also of profound understanding and compassion for the victims and even architects of the self-swallowing feedback loops of post-consumer culture.

Not content to confine itself to the crude techniques of symbolism so beloved of earlier, Hegelian-influenced Marxist-Leninist philosophers and writers, "Bulletstorm" borrows the metafictional techniques of Borges and combines them with a Dadaist sense of literary negative space to suggest, within the readers' own sense of the proletariat, the construct it wishes to address, coupled with a self-deconstruction impelled by inevitability of process, rather than any content-oriented deliberation of intent.

For example, when a character delivers the line "I'll shoot you in the dick!", the author(s) cunningly convey the image of a consumerist society where grown men might not only be paid to sit in sound booths and practice, over and over again, their delivery of the line "I'll shoot you in the dick!", but to discuss how best it might be delivered, and even to do so while being aware of its inherent absurdity, an absurdity they must cooperate with even while perceiving it for what it is, lest they lose the income with which they feed their families, and lose their status within the Capitalist machine upon which they depend even as it destroys them from within.
