Bulletstorm Pukes on Popular Halo 3 Advertisement

Bulletstorm‘s creators don’t take their game quite as seriously as Bungie did with Halo.

Bungie once used the contrast of Chopin’s “Raindrop” Prelude on top of a diorama made of figures from a Halo 3 battlefield to show the seriousness and horrors of war. Epic Games and People Can Fly have created a parody video that proves Bulletstorm is not quite the same game.

Instead of opening up on the scene of a battle that has taken its toll on humanity, Bulletstorm‘s parody opens to the scene of a chaingun-wielding cyborg shooting a zombie-like hot dog vendor in the junk. As Chopin’s emotional piano music continues, the camera pans to a grenade being launched into a foe’s rectum.

For comparison, the Halo 3 diorama trailer is below:

While Halo‘s trailer paints humanity as a noble race that makes sacrifices to save itself, Bulletstorm‘s trailer paints humanity as a bunch of jerks that blow off enemies’ private parts after enjoying a hot dog. Even in death, the main character of Bulletstorm still finds a way to demean his foes. It might be a little juvenile, but I’ve got to admit, I would really like to launch a grenade into a zombie’s butt.

Bulletstorm will be available on February 22, 2011 for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.

Thanks for the tip Lost In The Void!
