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 An over the top Shooter! 5 Mar 2011
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PlayStation3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Bulletstorm is a completely over the top first person shooter from `People can Fly' and `Epic Games' (the Gears of War Studio) does it provide a completely new take on the FPS or does it fall flat on its face.

The plot in summary; is you play as `Gray' a member of the `Dead echoes Squad' who work for `General Sarrano'. The squad carry out the General's orders blindingly, until the squad find out they have been killing innocent people and as such they want redemption. I won't go on as I don't want to spoil what happens next, but the plot while not great is not bad either. It's hard to take the characters seriously but this was done on purpose by the developers, to keep the essence of simple fun in the game.

Graphics are of a high quality, you can definitely tell this game uses the unreal engine, but doesn't have some of the bad loading textures like some others. The visuals have a very slight cartoon/exaggerated feel but works within the feel of the game. It's also worth noting that the set pieces are incredible both in size and visually, you can tell the designers worked hard here and really works to make you feel you are on a real planet.

The gameplay mainly revolves around the theme of "Kill with Skill", by this it means you have to dispose of you enemies in the flashiest way possible. For example: you can boot an enemy into the air and shoot a Firework into him sending him into oblivion. You also get more points the flashier you kill. You two trusted weapons in this game are; your leash (this grabs opponents and flings them towards you) and your Boot (gives enemies a big fat kick), while these don't sound like much on paper they work really well with the "kill with skill" motto.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculously fun and enjoyable! 4 Mar 2011
By AINTD
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PlayStation3|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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, Fun, Fun! And a great game too. 10 July 2011
By Steven
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PlayStation3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
One thing you should note about this game is that it has no DNA, but that is replaced by F-U-N. Every single moment of this game (bar a few points towards the end, and you will know what I talk of when you get there)is joyous in terms of the combat mechanics, which are genuinely excellently implemtented and designed.

Let me give you an example:

You approach a slope leading down towards a house. You can double tap the cross button to slide down this, press R1 to fire at enemies as you are sliding. Standing up you can hold down L2 to use the thumper (which sends every enemy in the nearby area into the air), and then use your revolver's alternate fire to send these enemies flying yet still further in a fiery wave of explosive death!

The game makes killing fun. You should be concerned by that, but remember that this is a game. A very fun game.

Let me give you three pro's and con's.

Pro's:
1) Combat - genuinely brilliant in terms of the feel of the combat, it feels both fast and heavy at the same time.
2) Skillshots - adds something very good to the game, and leads you to experiment with the way you kill people in order to get more points.
3) Game - graphics, sound and voice acting are very, very well done. Not done overly serious (Call of Duty...) but done with the aim of FUN in mind.

Con's:
1) Length - if you had as much fun as I did you could clear this relatively quickly, even on the second-hardest difficulty setting. That isn't a bad thing as such in terms of length, because if you are having so much fun that you race through the game, then that is a good, good thing.
2) Bugs - I did encounter one bug towards the end of Act 3 Chapter 2 which prevented me from proceeding to the rest of the game.
