Finished Bulletstorm this morning and oh my was it fun. Tremendously over the top and very arcadey, this really delivered. I wasn’t overly fussed about it pre-launch to be honest. It looked like it could turn out to be very mediocre and I was going to wait for a drop in price, but then the reviews and gameplay videos poured out on the eve of its release and I knew I just had to own it. It’s ridiculous how fun it is. Working out new and inventive ways to kill people kept things fresh, and it encourages you to use all the weapons at your disposal. It’s also one of the most beautiful looking first person shooters I’ve ever seen, with environments looking more like Enslaved than Gears of War.
You’ve no doubt heard about its constant bad language and cheesy dialogue and that seems to be putting a lot of people off, but they’re really missing the point; Bulletstorm is supposed to be ridiculous and in your face. It’s also a ton of fun and a game you should definitely check out.
