Manufacturer's Description

A brand-new and unique First Person Shooter IP from the teams that brought you Gears of War and Painkiller. Epic Games, People Can Fly and Electronic Arts present Bulletstorm, an over-the-top shooter that introduces signature ‘kill with skill’ gameplay.

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.

Taking the role of Grayson Hunt, wield over-the-top combat moves and some of the most uniquely innovative weapons ever seen in a first person shooter that all feed into Bulletstorm’s™ distinct ‘skillshot’ system for unprecedented levels of frantic gameplay. Unleash the Bulletstorm!

Preview:

The facts behind Bulletstorm read like a recipe for excitement among hardcore gamers: first off, it’s an all-new first-person shooter, a rare occurrence indeed; and then there’s its development pedigree, with Epic Games (Gears Of War) and People Can Fly (Painkiller) taking the reins jointly. As if that wasn’t enough, it goes out of its way to be as gleefully and gloriously over-the-top as it possibly can. The word ‘generic’ isn’t in Bulletstorm’s vocabulary.

Story-wise, Bulletstorm casts you as Grayson Hunt, an ex-mercenary turned space-pirate, whose spaceship collides with the military ship it is battling, and both crews end up stranded on Stygia, a once-paradisiacal planet now abandoned and overgrown. Teaming up with the cyborg Ishi Sato and, unwillingly, Trishka Novak from the rival ship, you embark on a mad quest to escape the planet by overcoming all manner of enemies which even include mutated boss-plants.

Bulletstorm’s gameplay eschews such mundane concepts as mere survival: the game is all about killing with style. Luckily, you have an unprecedented set of tools designed to let you do that. The weaponry, for example, is simply outrageous: the Boneduster, for example, is a quad-barrel shotgun, the Flail Gun fires two grenades chained together, which can wrap themselves around enemies before exploding, while the Bouncer fires bouncing bombs that you can kick into enemies. All the weapons have chargeable alternate-fire modes that render them even more deadly – for example, the Boneduster alt-fires a volley of flaming bullets that vaporise any flesh in their path.

In conjunction with the weaponry, you get an upgradable leash which lets you pull enemies towards you or, when you level it up, whiplash them up into the air. Plus, you get powerful kick and slide moves – all of which, when administered, cause a slowing down of time and a temporary suspension of gravity. Combine all those attributes together, and you reach the very essence of Bulletstorm: spectacular combos which earn you different amounts of points. You might, for example, pull an enemy towards you, then kick him into a cactus or an exploding dustbin, or kick a bouncing bomb into a plant and poison group of assailants. Each combo has its own, wryly amusing, name, and the more stylish the moves you conjure up, the more points you get, which in turn yield upgrades, alt-fire ammo and so on.

Visually, Bulletstorm won’t be mistaken for any other game: lush, colourful vegetation has permeated everywhere, even the abandoned cities. And there’s a deeply addictive multiplayer mode, too, in which up to four people take on waves of enemies, Horde-style. In order to progress, they must pass a points threshold, so co-operation is the name of the game: there’s even a move in which all four players leash an enemy and pull him apart. If you like your games larger than life and thoroughly overblown, then you’ll be needing a copy of Bulletstorm.

4.0 out of 5 stars For those stuck at verification screen! 5 July 2011
By T. Khan
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Just a handy bit of advice.
I contacted EA customer support after getting stuck at the verification screen (after having installed the game). After an hour of waiting on the live chat service, they told me to "press enter" on the verification screen. The game then immediately verified and proceeded to play.
Also, the game is very enjoyable in my opinion.
Hope this helps!

4.0 out of 5 stars A definite grower 28 Feb 2011
By Macintyre's Speculum TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've just completed this game, so am writing the review based on the entire single player campaign. I haven't tried multiplayer so won't be commenting on that.

Lets get the nasty bit out of the way first. This game requires Games for Windows Live. I had a mare getting that up to date a couple of months ago when I was playing Bioshock 2. Consequently, I didn't have any trouble this time around. However, I see from other reviews that it has been an issue for some people. All I can suggest is that before you install the game, make sure your system is up to date, then be prepared for a couple of reboots as GFWL sorts itself out. Theres nothing complicated about the process. It is just time consuming.

Anyway, now that that is out of the way, what is the game itself like? Imagine you are in the movie of a Marvel Comic Book, and you won't be far wrong. The dialog is cheesy as heck, and everything is completely OTT, however there is an underlying story that pulls you along nicely. You play the part of a wronged merc, out for revenge. You are stuck on a planet which used to be an adventure playground for the rich but which has become overrun by savages and mutants. All this is explained as the story progresses. You soon get some enhancements that bizarrely monitor your actions, and award you points depending on how you kill your foes. At first this seems a tad unbelievable, even if you have totally immersed yourself in the game world. However, it all gets explained when you get to about Act four, from memory. (There are seven acts in total, in a game that lasts approx 10 hours).

So, this skillshot system is immediately appealing, and immense fun. However, it soon gets quite boring.

3.0 out of 5 stars Installation Nightmare! 4 April 2013
By Cooder
Access Method:Box| Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
I haven't actually played this through, so I'm only reviewing the installation - and it's a doozy!

A lot of people buying this are going to install, then have the Games for Windows Live refuse to register it because it found a 'corrupt file'. This is extremely common - perhaps it affects every Win 7 installation.

Here's what I did to get it to work on Win 7.

Don't install to Program File (x86) - create your own folder, directly in the C Drive,

Then DON'T use the usual installation - open the game folder, and use Game.msi ,

Then DON'T open the game using the usual .exe file, use zpd.exe, found in Binaries/Win 32/Zpd,

Then, if you are lucky, and already have a Games for Windows Live identity (I did for Bioshock), the game will open!

If you don't already have a GFWL identity - I pity you!

Hope this helps - it worked for me, and I was on the verge of returning the game. I didn't invent these moves, I compiled them from various forums, and found when used together, they worked.

4.0 out of 5 stars a good game 20 May 2011
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
if you want some undifficulty action super fun game, if you want a game in that you haven't to think about the way or what you have to do, if you want a game in which you only must shoot and destroy and laugh and have fun than buy BULLETSTORM. It's all what you need!!!!!

I like it.

A very lucky gamer from Germany.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculously fun and enjoyable! 4 Mar 2011
By AINTD
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Bulletstorm is an incredible and successful attempt at making something fun and original within the genre that has been dominated by pseudo realistic military shooters clones. BS does not take itself too seriously, opting instead to supply fun and exhilarating action non-stop.

You play as Grayson Hunt - an ex-spec-ops agent and now a space pirate with alcohol problems. Gray is on a quest for vengeance and redemption and when an opportunity rises he directs his spaceship crew to torpedo through a huge opposing vesel hosting Gray's arch-nemesis and ex-superior in command - General Sarano. I will not be spoiling the story, suffice is to say that it is fairly original and not as cliche as most other shooters out there.

After the game's intense opening, you find yourself crashed on a planet hosting to a lush world and a futuristic resort city. But something has gone terribly wrong and instead of enjoying your stay, you fight for your life and escape chance against many of the planet's savage inhabitants.

The main gameplay aspect of Bulletstorm and the one that makes it unique is the skillshot system. How many times have you played other shooters and killed bad guys in some special? How many times you felt you did great and never got any acknowledgement from the game? This time around, BS will keep a close track of your performance and reward your ingenuity when it comes to killing enemies with points that can then be spent on upgrades to score even more points. An array of interesting weapons - each will powerful alternative fire mode, a kick, a slide and an energy leash will help you setup the most incredible and funny situations to dispose of the baddies.

Bottom line: Bulletstorm is a fun game, original and fresh in the world dominated by stagnant CoD clones.
