one word: fun.,
This review is from: Bulletstorm [Download] (Software Download)
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. and the achievements are shared with xbox and windows phone 7 games to become part of your gamerscore.
overall it is a highly entertaining title. i've never played an fps that is this fun throughout. get this game. and you will have a blast.
