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.

sometimes we play games for a challenge, sometimes we play games to escape reality, sometimes we play games for interesting plot and characters, sometimes we play games for beautiful music, visuals, and story, sometimes we play games just for fun, and this game is all about fun.

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.

Straight forward--and awesome--FPS. Very clean and lively pace. Everything works like it should. For me, I want visual candy, lively dialog and the feeling of power, control and amusement throughout. I don't want to die a hundred times each hour and at the same time I want the game to feel challenging and to require creativity...and sometimes boldness. I don't want creepy environments that are unpleasant to be in for hours. This game environment is a fun place to run through.

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.

So far out of the 60 digital games I own this one is the underrated best. The graphics are awesome and the shooting, whip, and environmental mechanics are big fun. Got to admit I also like the voice overs. I thought Bulletstorm would just be crude juvenile humor but I'm impressed with it, you actually want to see what happens next.

Bulletstorm is a good old no-brain shooter: it is linear, brutal and fun, in the line of Painkiller which was originally created by the same developers. It's a lot of fun requiring not much thinking, and the score-based system encouraging to do "artistic" kills is a nice addition.

That said, Bulletstorm isn't anything more. The solo campaign is very short and the multiplayer inexistant, graphics and animation are nice without being overly impressive, and the profanity gets old quite fast. A good game to get on sale for under $10, but nothing to shake up the very competitive FPS landscape.

I was pretty excited to try out this game. From screenshots I had seen it looked to be an exciting game. For me, however, I didn't find it to be once I began playing it.
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.
