This is a impression of the Bulletstorm demo from the folks at Real Otaku Gamer. Its short, sweet and to the point.
I could've done without all the overly-immature comments that the characters make, but I found the Bulletstorm demo very fun
I agree, I think much of the dialogue is unnecessary and only there to appeal to the masses cuz apparently its "cool" to curse and what not. But the gameplay itself was pretty good. I like the skill shot system, and I can see that being expanded on hugely in the full version.
So is it more like Unreal Tournament? Or Gears of War in first person view? Cause this game seriously lacks imagination.
Gears of War is Unreal Tournament in 3rd person basically. Bulletstorm is a mix of both. Similar graphics, voices, character design etc...Most games by Epic are pretty similar in general. But its still a cool game. The leash thing is cool, the skillshot system is fun and addicting to find all of them. The only problems I see with this game are that it can easily get old quickly, and the shooting mechanics are kind of average.
to me it got old pretty fast, there's only so many ways to pull, kick, and shoot someone. i'll put this game on the back burner as i have a lot of others im looking forward too.
Everyone I've spoken too said it was targeted at COD retards and that the immature dialogue gets old reeeeeeeeeeeeally fast. @creatchee o.O I didn't say it was like COD. I said it was immature and therefore aimed at COD's audience; retards.
Then you're not speaking to the right people - the game is NOTHING like COD.
I thought the demo felt more like a FPK (first person kicker) though I'm sure that changes once you start picking up powerful guns. Still, the whole thing felt like one of those decidedly average games that tries to mask it's mediocrity with cheap gimmicks and it's lack of imagination with a nod and a wink to the audience.
Repetitive and boring. If a game has terrible AI I have no interest in it. And Bulletstorm has some seriously terrible AI. Also, there are no competitive MP modes to provide a challenge (since the AI clearly doesn't) so I think I'll skip this one. Whip/Kick/Shoot, repeat.
I don't understand all the hate for this title. I thought it was a fun, if not reinvigorating, take on first-person shooters. Solid controls, vivid graphics and sublime gameplay - what more could you want? I know some people might not enjoy the somewhat immature dialogue but I think it helps add personality and character to a genre usually devoid of both. To each their own, I guess. Also, "Whip/Kick/Shoot, repeat"? Couldn't you apply that same formula to all games?
"Also, there are no competitive MP" leashing you buddies MP would be unfair. im sure they tried this through the development process and it wan't fun to be whipped up in the air from 100feet away only to have the opponent pick you off during the slowed "bullet time". there are two MP modes tho, one is co-op and the other is a point race type. "Whip/Kick/Shoot, repeat." you obviously don't understand how to play the game properly. its about racking up points. if you keep doing the same moves over and over again you will receive diminishing returns on your moves. did you notice that you get 100pts for a move only to do the same one over and over only to be rewarded with 25pts? its the game telling you to change it up.
Wow, so much hate and we only got one part of the level to play with. I just found this was a light natured game which i miss, i can see myself playig this in 30 min burts and be fine with it which some games don't allow and also we don't know how far you can ramp up the difficulty but i don't see it as that much since its all about the skillshot. And we have yet to see the boss battles as well. as for the person above that said it wasn't competative, they said they didn't do deathmatch because the person on the recieving end would have no fun once they got kicked or leashed but they have CO OP and the competitive nature comes in the form of LEADERBOARDS. i made it to rank 3000 and i was happy as a pig in $hit but i have seen the top of that list and people have 20k points, where as i was a little over 10k so it can get pretty competative if you ask me. enjoy the game, and if its not your cup of tea then no need to buy it
