RePlayed: Bulletstorm | GodisaGeek

GodisaGeek: "The rising sun paints the sky in chemical shades of gold and bronze, streaked here with bloody crimson, there with the grey of noxious smoke; great plants wrap the distant landscape in emerald tendrils peppered with spores of yellow and red. Here and there the scars of industry mar this once-paradise: the rusted husks of derelict factories jut from the earth like broken teeth while burned-out pleasure resorts blacken the bright horizon. All around are the signs of revolution, bullet holes, scorch marks, gutted buildings – and silence; a deep, unsettling silence." (Bulletstorm, PS3, Xbox 360)

I had an absolute blast with Bulletstorm. It was an over-the-top blastathon that just wanted me to have fun, something I was more than happy to do.

However, I did feel like it was a game that sometimes felt trapped between two worlds, between wanting to be a balls-out old-schoold shooter, and having to try and fit in with the modern shooters. It felt like I should be strafing, running and gunning, yet stepping outside of cover for too long was often a mistake. Regenerating health felt like another modern concession when health packs feel like it would have fitted the game far more.

So yea, sometimes it felt like it was trapped between the to, but for the most part it was just a fun game filled with mayhem, violence and beautiful graphics.

I don't think I ever stayed still long enough to use cover, but you make a good point.

It's something that might have been addressed in the sequel, which is now, sadly, never to be.

Bulletstorm remains an awesome game though.
