Product Description

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.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Bulletstorm is a huge mash up of elements you have seen before. The environmental kills of 'Mad World', the bawdy un-pc script of Duke Nukem, the armour and weapon aesthetics of Gears of War, and something very similar to the gravity gun from Half-Life 2. When you break it down like this, you would be forgiven for feeling less than excited about the prospect of playing such a derivative title - But wearing its influences on its sleeve does not prevent this FPS from feeling like a breath of fresh air.

Most importantly this is a well designed game. The guns feel solid, they are balanced in terms of power, and have excellent uprades and second functions. The Levels in Campaign mode are well put together, and the environments, whilst not jaw droppingly rendered, are still pretty enough to create a 'real' world in which to tell the story, which is well voice acted, wittily scripted, and about as intricate as a brick :-D

The gameplay is a blast. Essentialy, 'just' killing an enemy gleans you little reward, this game demands that you combine weapon, environment, and melee attacks into a devastating combination. This is where the 'leash' comes into its own - leashing and kicking enemies sends them flying through the air in 'bullet time' allowing you time to aim precisely at their bodies and play out some pretty evil combinations of violence. For example, leash a distant enemy and as he hurtles towards you, target his neck with the flail gun (it fires explosive bolas), now kick him back into the crowd of his friends from whence he was plucked, just in time for the bolas to explode, taking out his friends with him. And that is one of the more mundane and simple possibilties presented by this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent mindless fun 31 Oct 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
There has been a lot of bad publicity about this game, concentrating on its graphic violence and dreadful bad language, however having played all the way through the game I don't understand why. Yes there is a lot of bloody violence and bad language, but it is so over the top that it is laughable rather than offensive. For me this is also why Bulletstorm works so well, it is just mindless bloody fun and a great game to boot.

The story line is stupid, the violence is ridiculously over the top, the language is dreadful and all of this serve to create a hilariously fun game to play. Add to this great visuals and superb shooting mechnics and this is a superb game to loose yourself in for some great fun.

If you want a game that is fun to play, and does not take itself to seriously then bulletstorm is a superb choice!

5.0 out of 5 stars Crazy, Explosvie and jam packed with action! 1 Mar 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Presentation 9.5

Bulletstorm does a great job of establishing a reality and sticking to it. The story is fun right up until the end, and the Leash sells the point system.

Graphics 9
Bulletstorm sets a new standard for Unreal Engine 3 games, with some great models and texture work complimented by brilliant colour and great lighting.

Sound 8.5
Bulletstorm's soundtrack is a mix between orchestral bombast and cliche'd shooter industrial, but the voicework is fun and well acted - assuming you can deal with the toilet humor.

Gameplay 9.5
Bulletstorm plays very well, with great responsive shooting. A wide variety of ways to kill your enemies and extra cool 'weapons' e.g. alcohol make this game awesome. The combo system is also great probably the best i've seen in my life as it really gets you hooked into improving your score by replaying. Unfortunately, Bulletstorm gets a bit repetitive in its last act and the ending is a bad shock but overall a fantastic unique game.

Lasting Appeal 9
Bulletstorm is seriously short as it only took me 5-7 hours to get through the campaign but with the different gameplay this game offers you will come back to the campaign for more, echoes mode is good fun, and anarchy mode is great and will keep you hooked till the eagerly anticipated gears 3 beta.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gears of War, but funny 28 Jan 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Imagine if Gears of War was *supposed* to be funny. Bulletstorm takes a while to hit its stride, but when it does it's a properly funny and hugely enjoyable shooter. I've no idea why it's been overlooked, but that does mean you can get it for a rock-bottom price. And you should, because it's a hoot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth it for the cash. 1 Aug 2014
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
This game got a bit of a slapping from some of the more conservative gamers because of the use of foul language it contains. To this I would say 'NOTE THE 18 CERTIFICATE'. It's bound to be adult content so don't be surprised.
Okay, it's a 1st Person shooter. GREAT weapon selection with a very good combat system. Weapons are upgradeable as the game progresses. Graphics are pretty good. Story line is good (and there are some hilarious dialogue moments). The enemies and A.I. is decent as far as mad-cap psycho foes charging in and attacking you go. The unique deaths points system makes for some good experimental violence. In a nut-shell, it's a good game for less than the price of a fish supper.
The down sides (losing it that final star rating)? Once you finish the game you don't get anything in the way of being able to replay it with all acquired weapons from the start. In the same vein as Rage and SpaceMarine, once you complete the story mode you have one choice alone, and that is to start again from scratch. This makes for an anti-climactic net result.
This said, for the cash you pay it's a bit of a hoot with some nice gun play. Give it a try if you are a fan of FPS games.
