Rated 10 out of 10 by GizmoTLR Not your every day shooter.
You can obviously tell the group of gamers that do not like this game are the hard core CoD fans. This is not your average FPS. Its a creative game with lots of different ways to kill an enemy. Everyone that is saying "this game is repetitive," let me see you get every single kill possible in the game. Every game is repetitive in its own way, take CoD for example. Online mode, run and kill people. Zombie mode, run and kill zombies. Campaign mode, rune and kill the enemy. Almost all games these days have a linear story line and they do not deviate from the game mechanics implemented that makes the game what it is due to the short attention span of this generation. If you live by CoD this this obviously is not the game for you. If your the type of gamer that likes something new then this is a game you will want to add to your collection. This game looks great, plays great, sounds great, and is great. I can honestly say its one of the best games i have bought for my PS3 so far.
Rated 10 out of 10 by TOPHINATORMAN Simple game: "Kill with Skill"
I wanted to get Bulletstorm since it dropped last February. I got it at Christmas and finished playing it recently because I've been playing other games as well; however, since I got back to playing, I haven't taken my hands off the controller. I consider this to be one of the best shooters I have ever played because it's so simple. You just kill everyone, in many different fashions. The environment is set up so the player can use their surroundings to kill the enemy. You use your leash, foot, and gun to kill along with the environment. So essentially, your entire body is a weapon. My only complaint, along with many other people, about this game is the language. I learned many new ways to insult my peers, but all of the characters were just downright vulgar. I would turn off my sound whenever one of my parents came in the room because I did not want them to hear the disgusting terms the characters were using. Nonetheless, Bulletstorm was extremely fun. The campaign can be played multiple times because you can kill people differently each time you play.
Rated 8 out of 10 by BamaGoatt2ndreview Bulletstorm is only 2/3 of a full game
The anarchy co-op mode is completely broken all kinds of complaints over at Epic's forums and they won't even tell us if they are going to fix it. At this point if you want to pay $65 for 2/3 of a game then it's a good buy but if you want the co-op anarchy mode you should take my warning and stay away. I will hopefully be trading this in as soon as I beat it. Hopefully the trade in value doesn't fall through the roof already see it is marked down as a used game. The campaign and echoes modes are fun but they offer very little replay value. The story is about 12 hours long funny and the graphics are really good too bad this game could have been a contender for GOTY now it is just a decent waste of time. Had it for a almost a week and ready to move on not worth $65 if you ask me more like a $40 game. This is why they should have released a co-op demo I could have beat this game for a week rental instead of paying $65.
Rated 9 out of 10 by duece Bulletstorm Delivers! So Pucker Up!
First things first. The sound, graphics and gameplay are all excellent! I played the BS Demo *ironic*. The demo itself gives you a feel of Gears of War, True. It also uses the Unreal Graphics Engine. It's an ultra smooth unparalleled engine. The engine alone makes this game find and hold it's lasting potential! I can cop a feel for the controls, because in how vastly familiar it is to me as Unreal 3 for PS3. The gameplay: you've crashed landed on a planet and you've been betrayed & setup. Now your out for brutal revenge. The dialogue is Halarious! The range of weapons is very nicely done! Multiple kills and SKILL SHOTS that rack up your SKILL & SKILL TECHNIQUES. It is challenging too! Don't think it's a mindless shooter, because it's not! A solid, moves with fluidity as the gameplay progresses. I recommend this for hardcore shooters & gamers alike! The game isn't all that long, that's why I gave it a 9 out 10.
Rated 9 out of 10 by KSTREET A Misunderstood title
I see a mixed reviews everywhere i look i feel like this is an awesome game, however many people don't understand it. The main complaint aside from the limited types of multiplayer is "it's too repetitive". Honestly these people are looking at this comparing it to a traditional shooter. It's repetitive if your simply killing enemies the same way every time. This game is about getting creative seeing how many different ways you can kill an enemy. It's about trying to complete as many DIFFERENT skillshots as you can. If you compare this to call of duty in the sense that the point is to effectively kill people then yes it's going to be boring and repetitive and lacking. It doesn't take a certain type of person to enjoy this game, but a certain way of playing it. I got Bulletstorm AND Killzone 3 on release and i haven't even touched killzone 3 before today because this game is very engaging, and I'm a hardcore gamer,not just casual. Lastly this game is visually STUNNING it is a very pretty very fun world to interact in. The second best visuals of 2011 the first is Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
Rated 10 out of 10 by PS3game222 craziest game ever
this game is amazing!!! this is the start of a awesome shooter series. the game i based on an abandoned planet with mutated and cannibalistic beings tht try to kill u. in the middle of this ur trying to kill a man named general serrano, and ur aided by ur sidekick Ishi. later in the game a girl name trishka joins u and u kill every living thing tht gets in ur way. this is a great game for anybody who wants to kill with some skill and completely shred through the enemy with a variety of weapons that are amazing. when u get to the last levels of the game i would recommend the regular machine gun with its charge shots full, the pistol with full charge shots, ur leash with thumper full, and the gun that drills in to people u can have charge shot if u want it its optional (this is the final weapon that you get in the game). over all this will be a great series theres nothing like it.

Bulletstorm is something new and fresh too the shooters and its something very nice , here we play as Grayson , a space mercenarie that is betrayed by one leader and its on a planet with a lot of psychos and space creatures to kill , the main part of bulletstorm is not only shoot enemies , is think how to kill them and see how original could be they way to kill them to earn points for upgrades and ammo and more , the skill shots look pretty brutal and they are just amazing , the story mode is good just for this and if you really want to see how brutal could be , try to do every single skill shot and you will see it , after campaing we have Echoes mode then its basiclly an arcade mode with little extra missions and Multiplayer , then it has survival to up to 4 players to survive waves and waves of enemies , Multiplayer could be simple but i think multiplayer was not really necessary to make this game succed as it is , i Really recommend you to get Bulletstorm , its something diffrent and fresh too shooters , if you are bored of War Shooters and you want to try something diffrent , i recommend you get this
Rated 9 out of 10 by theTMgamer Kill with some skilll woooo
Bulletstorm is the most recent game from the company epic to which made gears of war. but bulletstorm isnt just some generic shooter its a bit different. In the game you get things called skillshots to which give you points to upgrade weapons. a skillshot is something like kicking somebody into a cactus. I thought the characters were prettty good the dialogue hilarous. bulletstorm isnt the longest game ever but its about 9-10 hours.then theres multiplayer and echoes. echoes is where you can replay old sections of missions and get a highscore. and the multiplayer is called anarcy in which you play with 3 of your freinds (or enemies) and try get enoough points to get to the next round. there was some character custimazation in the multiplayer such as changing gun camo and suit. overall bulletstorm was a great game and im looking forward to playing the DLC.
Rated 0 out of 10 by deadlydoldas12 A perfect 10!
Bulletstorm takes place in a futuristic setting where a futuristic confederation is being protected by an elite band of mercenaries known as Dead Echo. When Dead Echo members Grayson Hunt and Ishi Sato discover that they had been working on the wrong side, they betray their squad commander and end up being exiled to the edges of the galaxy. Players take the role of Grayson Hunt a few years after his exile, who had since become a drunken space pirate. He ends up getting involved on an interstellar crash landing, where he meets his old comrade Sato.The two of them discover that they are surrounded by hordes of mutants and flesh eating gangs in an abandoned paradise. The two of them decide to work together once again to get off the planet alive and take revenge on the man who sent them there. Now I dont no about you but that sounds pretty beast. Cheers
Rated 8 out of 10 by wowgod17 IT's a good game..
This game is good, i was hesitant on the pre order but the more i played the demo the more i got into it, i bought it yesterday and i am not dissappointed atall, the graphics are good but could be better..this game kind of reminds me of gears of war for xbox, skillshots add a unique feel to the game and you gain more access to different ones the more you progress in the game, the story is a pretty good one, the prologue to the game fills you in on more of that. The idea of the game i feel is pretty original due to the fact you start in outer space, get your whole crew killed and crash land into a very hostile planet. Not many different types of weapons but that's ok, because there's so much to do with the one's you get in the game you won't be bored. This game makes you think creative on how to kill your foes, because there are endless ways to do so. I do feel however, you'd enjoy it more playing with friends because of the style of the gameplay itself. Still, it is fun going solo..i haven't played online yet because i'm very much into the story, the story keeps you wondering what's gonna happen next. Overall, i would reccomend this game to all gamers.
