Bulletstorm has been getting a lot of flak in the days before its release. In another article on this site, we are warned that playing such a title could possibly warp our fragile little minds and make us potential rapists. To hell with that! This game is awesome!
I really don't want to give much away about the story since it just came out, and I'm not one for ruining plots for my fellow gamers. Instead I'll talk about the gameplay itself. I've participated in three game modes. I've seen some of the campaign, the solo score attack, and the online multiplayer survival/score attack. The campaign is great. The environments are beautiful, the violence is epic, the dialogue...well if you needed another reason why this game is rated M, you found it. I used to think Gears of War was bad. Bulletstorm takes it to a whole new level.
Let's talk about gameplay shall we? The tagline is "kill with skill". Playing the campaign, you'll be introduced to the many different ways you can kill a mofo. Each weapon has a list of possible kills. Some of them are pretty simplistic, some take some planning, and others...hot damn! I would recommend playing through the campaign a bit before jumping into the online multiplayer. It will give you a chance to learn some of the basics. You get a nice little list with explanations of what you will need to do in order to expand your killing skills. My favorite so far is popping a guy in the air, shooting a flare in his ass, and watching him take off. I could do that every single day and not get bored with it. Every weapon has a list, so there's plenty to learn.
The multiplayer action comes in waves. With each wave there is a point limit you and your teammates must reach if you want to move on to the next level. Each level includes tougher enemies and a higher point limit. It offers quite a challenge in the higher levels. You and your teammates really need to work together. This game is tons of fun. Definitely not for the younger population. If you have a chance, go check it out, and if you like, look me up (APN Oshai). I'm always down for killing with extreme skill
