Summary

Bulletstorm brings new furor to first-person shooter action thanks to its signature 'kill with skill' gameplay. The game tells the story of a futuristic confederation protected by an elite band of mercenaries: Dead Echo. When Dead Echo members Grayson Hunt and Ishi Sato learn they've been working for the wrong side, they're betrayed by their commander and exiled to the far reaches of the galaxy. In Bulletstorm, Grayson and Ishi find themselves surrounded by hordes of mutants and flesh eating gangs in an abandoned paradise. They have two objectives: get off the planet alive, and exact revenge on the man who sent them there. Players step into the role of Grayson Hunt complete with an arsenal of over-the-top combat moves and outrageously large guns. Bulletstorm's array of distinct 'skillshots' produces unprecedented levels of frantic gameplay and yell-inducing satisfaction. The skillshot system rewards players for inciting mayhem in the most creative way possible. The more insane the skillshot, the more points players collects to upgrade their character and unlock weapons, which then allows them to execute even more creative moves and exaggerated skillshots.

THE DOPOMINE BUSTER

Bulletstorm with Duke nukem tour is like JOHNNY BRAVO on DOOM easy mode.
His cringy hilarious one piece dialogues with outstanding gameplay mode gives a quick adrenaline rush to the point where I completely forgot what the story was and I loved it.
The leash and kick combo with gunplay is exhilarating.
The Skillshot system gives you points for killing in skillful fashion and there are so many ways to do it,It was perfect.
Sure its repetitive but it depends on how skillful you are.
Gunplay is so much fun and fast paced with Duke's humour that it will burst you up.
If you're playing other games and need a break,chew a gum and play this gem.
10/10 for DUKE Nukem and VICTOR Sushidick humour.


Play the FULLCLIP edition.

To be honest, for a game blending cinematic quality of the 7th gen games and arcadey goodness of the 5 th gen games, Bulletstorm is super fun to play.
Like, from its sliding to its shooting, everything has that oomph factor turned upto 11, and more so.

In fact, here's a thing. Last year i played singularity, and in it, very briefly you get a sniper rifle where you can manipulate and move the bullet like you are James Mcavoy from the 2008 film Wanted. Well, in that game, that sniper rifle was there for a short time and I always wondered how fun it would be to have it for a longer duration. Well, not only this game answered my curiosity in spades, it also doubled down with pleasure by providing it an explosive charge. In fact, not only sniper rifle, every fucking gun just feels really smooth to control. The sliding and kicking of the enemies is as equally smooth and nirvana, and the thumper/whip thingey is just butter to control. And when you start chaining all of them togethet with the amazing score popping up nearby, it is one of the most fun shooting i have had in fps.

Now in terms of drawbacks, there are few. There is a lot of tonal clashes between it trying to be a serious revenge story of a main character who is both flawed and in regret for his actions, and a comedic buffonery where the main character is a duke nukem esque potty mouth making jokes and quips, ala, deadpool. There are moments where one element works and other doesn't, but overall, they never come together as cohesive piece. Another criticism would be that the dialogues can be little unintentionally cringe sometimes. Don't get me wrong, there are some really good jokes here, and the bit with the dinosaur is my absolute favorite piece of gaming ever, it had me rolling with laughter (and not to say, it was mechanically a cool idea), but again, a lot of it also doesn't land and feels very try hardy. Same thing with some of the most serious moments. And also, it is one of those 7th gen games that was...let's say...way too hopeful for a sequel.

Anyway, this game is fun to play. And I will still reccomend playing it whole heartedly. It is a fun ride, and a joyous one at that. The two weapon modes for every weapon (normal shot and charge shots) also gives it a lot of replayability to try new shit out and see some new ways you can string some combos and kills smoothly.

So yeah, go ahead and play it. And enjoy your time with it. ^^

Replayed it again after a decade. In some elements the game was ahead of it's contemporaries which were mostly call of duty or bioshock clones, the skillshot system isn't as fleshed out as I thought it was back when I played it for the first time in 2011, and although the leash and THE KICK were still sweet but they get pretty repetitive midway through. Guns are mostly cool and entertaining but the stages could have used more gimmicks to kill the enemies with environmental kills. Overall, there was something endearing about playing a game from that era and I recommend it if you don't got any other games to play.

Bulletstorm may just be a funny fps shooter but it's still really good the characters play off each other well and the enemies you face vary from normal to ludicrous, there's so much personality in this game that I would play it again just for the dialogue but the gameplay is still extremely fun.
