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.
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.

things i like about this game:
the scoring and skillshots system is very well designed and kept me hooked throughout the main game, and continues to keep me hooked in the echo mode after. it has never been that fun finding more creative ways of destroying your enemies.
gameplay is varied, from blasting a big ship at space, boarding a helicopter and shooting a huge monster from above, to remote controlling a huge gorilla robot to crush enemies below, and many more. they are not excessive and are there just to occasionally give you a break from the meat of the game, which is to find innovative and fun ways of killing enemies.
most of the time the game is at outdoors, with beautifully rendered visuals and grand scenery. i love games like this.
all of those juvenile cursing and humor. there are some cleverly written lines, and some just "memorable" lines. dick jokes are not excessive.
the plot can be dark at times but generally it is light and fun.
you can turn gore off (cursing can be turned off if you like that).
things i don't like about this game:
occasionally characters can get stuck in places. i've only experienced this twice throughout the entire game though.
the ending is sort of a cliffhanger. i understand that they were trying to set up for a sequel, which seems unlikely at the point, but still, it would be nice to have some kind of closure.
the drm is ok. i've never experienced any problem with it.Read more ›
This is an easy game but only in the best way. It didn't feel easy to me...it was just plain fun. This is really one of the most fun times I've had with a game. Some want deep, profound experiences that last forever and have replay and multiplayer content to last forever. Not me. And, don't expect it here. True "gamers" will likely find a great deal lacking here. I have profound experiences all day...I mean, that's why I read and have conversations and work...bla, bla, bla...--I just want to have fun with my rig and blow stuff up when I play a game. I want pure "amusement park" diversion and I found it here.
*some note the crude dialog...ya, it gets to be a bit much but for me, only towards the end. I mean, that this is what a lot of uber-macho guys are like. I often found it amusing and it wasn't (as some suggest) constant.
*some others seem to have had technical problems. I am sure they did but it is silly of them to assume others will as well. You might have problems like they did or you might sail through--settings at their highest--without a hitch like me and most others.
I did enjoy the visuals. I had all the settings cranked up and the graphics just pop off the screen. The use of color and effects in the game is fantastic and makes a very beautiful looking game.
Other than the visuals, however, I didn't find much that excited me about the game. I found the action to be generic with a few cool gameplay mechanics thrown in. Waves of predictable enemies run at you at predictable times and you're supposed to dispatch them in creative ways. It's satisfying to do this the first couple of times, but it quickly became repetitive for me. I just felt like I was playing a poorly written COD game mixed with elements from Gears of War.
I guess that brings me to the next big thing I noticed which was the dialogue. The dialogue and banter between characters almost always sounds like it's written by a potty-mouthed 4th grader trying to make his group of friends laugh. I don't get offended by foul language or very adult bathroom humor, but I don't find it amusing when it's incredibly forced and almost constant. It just got old for me and quite grating.
I do respect what the creators did with this game. They definitely wanted to make something different in the FPS genre and I think they did succeed to some extent. I just found that some of the aspects of the game weren't for me.
The Bad: Gets repetitive quickly, underlying game play is still just shooting at whatever moves, some skill shots are very hard to pull off
The controversy surrounding Bulletstorm's violence isn't actually all that bad. What everyone should pay attention to is the kick ass new breed of game play it brings to the table by making it more exciting and fun again. Surprisingly this game isn't just brawn thanks to a pretty snazzy storyline. You play as Grayson who is a pirate and with his buddies takes on jobs as a mercenary. You take the wrong job and find out the truth about what you've been doing all these years and you go in a man hunt to kill the guy responsible. You get taken to a planet that's ravaged into ruin and you come across some pretty strange enemies.
The characters themselves are great and the dialog is hilarious, witty, and full of sharp one liners and banter. Bulletstorm's main campaign may have a solid story line, but it's the action that really counts here. The whole idea of the game is to rack up skill points which are then spent to upgrade weapons and buy ammo. These skill points are earned by how you kill your enemies. Instead of just shooting them until they are dead you must get creative with your weapon, the environment, and everything around you. You can shoot an enemy in the neck, groin, or head and get some skill points that way (the names of these skills are what lead to all the controversy), but why stop there? How about you set your enemy on fire with a weapon's secondary fire (called Charge Shots) then kick them into a cactus plant.Read more ›
