Best games of 2011: Bulletstorm - Riding on the coattails of Gears 3?

Yeah, that's a shame really. Because Bulletstorm is really shaping up to be a game that'll make people forget about Gears.

I don't know, this just seems like a gimmicky FPS which borrows a lot from Crysis and the Duke Nukem series.

If you play Painkiller, you will notice it looks like a lot of that game (maybe because are the same developers), Unreal Tournament and a little Duke Nukem and bit of Necrovision.

But, still, the game looks fun to play online, just to have fun with friends.

BYE2830d ago (Edited 2830d ago )

I used to play Painkiller online and yes, you're right. They might also have taken some inspiration from Serious Sam.

I would rather this game ride on its own merits than off the pent up demand of another game. I feel this game will easily sell well without a Gears demo because it is very fun. And yes I tried it (E3 pass FTW).

I think this will only serve as more of a fanboy argument than an actual important part of the game.

This also might equally kill the demand of this game on one console and drive the demand of the other thus creating a bias in terms of all comparisons including graphics.

Overall I think this tactic to sell the game may also work against it in standing on its own.

Regardless, I am going to get this game but instead of being a choice on which console to buy for, it has now become the only choice being for the Xbox.

Cajun Chicken2830d ago

People Can Fly made Painkiller and with that, you can clearly see that their inspiration was Duke, Doom, Quake and Serious Sam. That's all good to me. If anything, this in an evolution of the mad physics and repeated weapon torture of Painkiller.

I've got sick of iron sight shooters anyway.

Raider692830d ago

YES!GIVE SOME PAINKILLER FUN!FUN LIKE GAMES SHOULD BE!

I doubt it'll make people FORGET about Gears (Not that I like Gears of War, though...).

However, it looks pretty damn awesome, so I'll probably get it sometime next year.

ATi_Elite2830d ago

For me Bulletstorm is a sure fire rental, the game shows nothing worth buying and zero replay value. That's just me as others may love this type of game.

Bulletstorm should sale a lot of units just so people can get into the Gears 3 Beta other than that it would fail like Enslaved.

NeoBasch2830d ago

It already has. I'm far more excited for Bulletstorm than Gears 3. I don't care for the beta.

8thnightvolley2830d ago

people will buy this game just for the gears 3 beta

Silly gameAr2830d ago

Seems CVG liked what they played of the game, but the headline is just to lure people in. CVG seem to do that a lot.

thehitman2830d ago

Thats probably why they delayed it so they could get bulletstorm better sales and publicity using the gears trojan like what MS did w/ crackdown and halo. Hopefully bulletstorm is actually good though.

lelo2play2830d ago (Edited 2830d ago )

Hummmmm... Will the beta code for Gears 3 come in the PS3 version of Bulletstorm?

just kidding :)

CrzyFooL2830d ago

Raider692830d ago

I really think Bulletstorm will stand on it's own. This game could breathe some life into the FPS genre.

Xfanboy2830d ago (Edited 2830d ago )

Gears 3 Beta = Awesome
No local splitscreen co-op = Fail

dirthurts2830d ago

I've not played splitscreen in forever.
It was always back in highschool or whatever, but now all my friends are out working and we just game from home.

Vegetom2830d ago (Edited 2830d ago )

Hehe, but this game just screams for splitscreen.. atleast that's what I think. The game looks awesome btw, I will buy it anyway. :9
