Review: Bulletstorm

Epic's latest redefines the word "fun."

Read Full Article

Great game, made in Poland!
It kinda reminds me of Total Overdose - i loved that game and it's, well, skillshots, because it's essentially the same system.

Excellent review. I don't know if I'm going to be a big fan of the game, but the review was fun to watch.

So basically dumb, very dumb game where you just kill stuff in the most horrible ways?

Sounds like Prototype + Borderlands. I like it. Too bad I pre-purchased Crysis 2 already... Hey, there's always summer, right?

Yeah I figured the story would be absolute tripe, but I don't care in this case. I want to leash guys into the air and shoot a flare in their ass.

Good review Russ

It seems better than I expected. Well, crappy story was expected, but the gameplay looks even better than I thought... I think once I have my gaming rig I'm gonna have to celebrate with this game...

Damn I want to launch dudes into the air, attach grenades to them and then drill a hole in their crotches with that drill-gun. I lament my near-empty bank account :(

EDIT: Anyone buying this for PC (hard copy or Steam) let me know how Games for Windows Live is worked into this. I'd like to know whether it cripples certain modes one way or another.

DUmb question but what's the song at the end?

Good review btw. Picking this up later

Very good review, score grinding is boring though :(

It's "Boom" by P.O.D.

Boom-POD

Oddly enough, they are a christian rock band..... hehehehe oh the irony.

I know what I'm doing today!

Oh my!.

I actually enjoyed the video review and your "Top 10 kills" and that was just the right amount of "review" I wanted to decide if this game is for me or not. And yes, this game is for me indeed. Dicktits.

It's a shame that EA took up Activision's iniciative of charging full price for the PC version ($60).
I'll wait until it gets discounted, as I'm quite short of funds right now.

iron is pretty amazing, is it not :3

This game, although seemingly bland and marketed to the college frat boy demographic, looks very fun to play and looks like the devs really put some effort into this game. Still saving my money for Brink and Portal 2 though. And Minecraft. Can't forget Minecraft.

Basically a plain dumb game...

*runs to store to buy this game*

WHAT!? There a rule that games have to be classy to be good?

i likely wont get it since it requires GFWL, but in case this is one of those titles that only requires GFWL for MP which i never really play, how long is the single player campaign?

I find the use of P.O.D's "Boom" to be both apropriate and highly ironic.

Christian Rock used to accentuate sensless violence for the sake of amusement and excessive profanity?

I award you One Million-Billion-Billion Points.

"Except now theyre dead - WHOOPS!"

I dunno if i will enjoy this, i really didn tliek the demo. I may of had too much high hopes and expectations?

Dick-Tits? Lol funny shit

As expected, this game looks like nothing more than mindless gory killing with no real purpose other than pure entertainment.

And thats just about what I expect to see from Epic. Good work boys!

Now, come out with GEARS 3 ALREADY!!!!

I want this game. Bah gotta wait until Friday for it, stupid UK release date.

Loved the video supplement. Can't wait to get it, it isn't out here yet. I have to wait until Friday. It seems to be shaping into a love-hate type game, some people played the demo and adored it (like me) and others simply don't see what's meant to be so good.
I for one can't wait to have senseless fun kicking people in the head. After wrapping them in bombs. After shooting them in the balls. Before kicking them off a cliff.

That was a great video. I feel closer to buying this title.

Great review man, for both the written text and the video. Although I disagree with your number one skill kill, (I just love saying that) it was a pretty good top ten.

The ending with BOOM! was kickass as well. Love that song.

I wonder what Yahtzee will say in his review for this. If he liked Painkiller, then he might give this one a chance.

You guys just had this ready to go didn't you? I'm sure there's a way to dig into the game files and rename that into movie so the game can't find it, like I do with those dicktit unskippable nvidia things.

So, It's a FPS without cover based game play, Russians and American GIs?

WANT!

This isn't generating all the buzz it seemed would. I'm getting it, many reviews are praising it for innovating on the FPS, not to mention I'm completely tired of CoD and its followers' make-you-feel-like-a-soldier crap.

This game does look like fun, but does ayone else feel that Epic want's the PC version to fail so they can abandon that platform completely? Why else would it use GFWL? I've been noticing a pattern here with GoW 1 and UT3.

how is this a buy title? I mean sure it's fun but rent it for a free weekend and you're gonna finisht he whole thing, it's worth a few replays but why bother. The fun shooter of the year is gonna be Duke nukem forever with allegedly longer SP, historical value and MP. I would've conisdered buying if it had the advertised co-op but, oh well.

Definitely going to pick this up, but I'm not sure which platform to choose.

Oh well, I WILL KILL YOUR DICK.

Certainly sounds better than the demo made it seem...

I might pick this up after all.

After Pokemon. After Dragon Age 2. And even after Two Worlds 2.

"He's like a little dude squish sandwich."

I haven't laughed so hard at a review outside of ZP in... well, ever.

Glad to hear that Bulletstorm is good. I liked Painkiller with the exception of the dopey story they tried to foist on you, so if this is 'Painkiller - plot' that is a winner in my book.

Dammit, I am actually going to have to buy this. Dicktits.

After seeing this review I totally want to go out and rape someone!

(note: I do not really want to rape anyone)

Painkiller, Bulletstorm, Witcher 2.

Polish pride. Fuck yeah.
