Wait how did Famitsu review Bulletstorm first
Cajun Chicken  +   1654d ago
I don't know...but NOT a bad score for a quirky western FPS!
StarScream4Ever  +   1654d ago
Japanese do like quirky stuff even if its western.
TBM  +   1653d ago
Honestly I was eager to play bulletstorm when it was first announced, but after playing the demo I found it got old very fast.

Pull, kick, shoot rinse and repeat was all I could think while playing. The dialogue is laughable at best, but I know that's what they were going for its just not for me.

I'll get BS down the line when its a lot cheaper.
TBM  +   1653d ago
Wow im not surprised by the disagreers lol, I guess I have to like every game coming out and pay full price for it too huh?

All I can do is hahahaha
Silentmerc3nary  +   1653d ago
This dialog IS laughable, which is exactly why I was laughing my ass off creatively killing my way trhough a metric-fuck-ton of mutated spuds!
gorebago  +   1654d ago
I really want disgaea 4
KillaManiac  +   1654d ago
Ive put so many hours into Disgaea 3 its not even funny.

Will day 1 purchase this easy.
gorebago  +   1654d ago
Hell yea. I played 1 and 2 on the ps2 and then years later bought the, again on the psp so I'm right there with you.
Nugan  +   1654d ago
I wonder when we are going to get Rune Factory Oceans. I guess it doesn't matter, because I'm not even through year one in Frontier
Zydake  +   1654d ago
Wait wth?
"Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity (PSP) – 10/9/9/9
Bulletstorm (PS3/360) – 9/8/9/8
Disgaea 4 (PS3) – 9/8/8/8
Harukanaru Toki no Naka de 5 (PSP) – 9/8/8/8
Killzone 3 (PS3) – 8/8/8/9
Rune Factory: Oceans (Wii/PS3) – 8/8/8/7
Vitamin X to Z (PSP) – 8/7/6/6
Muchi Muchi Pork! & Pink Sweets (360) – 6/6/6/6"

Does this mean Bulletstorm got a better score then KZ3? the fuck?
xCaptainAmazing  +   1654d ago
yes, the universe will explode. it's just one review, but it wouldn't surprise me if it turned out to be better. Epic is a great studio and they've been around for a long time.
aviator189  +   1654d ago
yeah, epic is pretty great in development, but bulletstorm is mainly developed by People Can Fly. Epic was there sort of as a mentor to the studio.

For example, epic suggested people can fly to change bulletstorm from third-person shooter to a fps.
palaeomerus  +   1654d ago
9/8/9/9 is about an 85 average.
8/8/8/9 is like an 82.5 average.

Keep in mind that Japan doesn't buy Killzone or really any other FPS. So the score barely matters.
cobpswii3600  +   1654d ago
Bulletstorm will not be the better game. No fucking way.

@cobpswii3600 - Golden rule of the fanboy: Multiplats can never be better than exclusives. No matter how good they are in reality.
gypsygib  +   1654d ago
I know Epic can make some great games but BS is extremely boring judging from the demo.
lh_swe  +   1653d ago
Delbert - With that logic everyone is an idiot fanboy as soon as they critisize a multiplat...oh no! That's not the case? Bulletstorm doesn't look all that great...hmmm, Delbert you 'anti'-fanboy googles are seemingly malfunctioning.
xCaptainAmazing  +   1654d ago
This is of course true, I was merely speaking of things with the Epic brand.

masterofpwnage  +   1654d ago
does it matter bro.
review doesnt mean shit to me.

im actually one of the people who love and bought lair and one of the many who hated GTA4.

to make you feel better, they gave lair ( which i loved ) and haze a almost perfect score

callahan09  +   1653d ago
I'm a little concerned about that myself. I've played the demos for the two games and I have a hard time accepting that Bulletstorm could be better. I thought the demo for Killzone 3 was one of the most spectacular, beautiful, awesomely fun FPSs I'd ever played. The demo for Bulletstorm didn't really do it for me. The stage design was literally the most linear I've ever seen in an FPS and I wasn't blown away by the little gimmicks they threw in to make it seem so over the top. I dunno.
CBaoth  +   1653d ago
at the end of the day, Cal, who really cares
To any sane gamer whose downloaded and played both demos, we all know which is better. And it isn't the one filled with quippy one liners from Tank Dempsey.

Honestly, I always thought KZ2 was overrated. A good game but not w/o its faults. However, for me, the sequel (well the beta and demo anyway) addressed every issue I had with the second title.

Bulletstorm's juvenile potty humor might be funny if you're 15, but even more seriously, similar games like The Club and Vanquish prove these hi-score homages to the old arcade mantra don't sell today. They quickly lose their appeal and I'm quite surprised EPIC didn't strongly recommend a MP component.
snipes101  +   1653d ago
I was just waiting for someone to notice this and start moaning even though they are the first to review the game and there is no consensus yet. WHO. THE. FUCK. CARES?!
Vherostar  +   1653d ago
only 1 score higher and they are very differnt games. The fact they got so high being western FPS is good.
Game0N  +   1654d ago
i dont get this score scale...its retarded
Nitrowolf2  +   1654d ago
didn't disagree
basically it's out of 40, so what ever the number adds up to be out of 40 is your score

so this:
Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity (PSP) – 10/9/9/9

means 37/40
a_bro  +   1654d ago
4 reviewers sit down and review the game. each reviewer reviews it out of a possible 10 points.

it justs adds more credibility to the reviews by looking at the opinions of 4 people instead of one.

add up the combined score, then divide by 4, you get the average review score from those 4 reviewers. its not retarded at all.

Just because you don't comprehend it doesn't mean it's retarded.

Algebra? I don't get it, It's retarded!
gorebago  +   1654d ago
Algebra is easy dude - but I get you're logic - lol

hahah i was making a point xD
kerrak  +   1654d ago
you mean "i'm" instead of "its"
gypsygib  +   1654d ago
Every site should have at least a 3 man review team for each game to correct inconsistency that is beginning to be substantially more prevalent in reviews.

Good review score for bulletstorm ;)
gypsygib  +   1654d ago
People reviewing K3 without using Move are underrating it. K3 with Move is honestly one of my fav FPS games ever and that's just playing the demo MP and SP, I've never had a game keep me captivated for so long (nor has my k/d ratio been higher). I played the SP demo 3 times and loved it. Maybe it's boring with DS3'but with Move it's awesome!

Once you tweak the Move controls you'll never want to go back to a standard controller again.

To me, Bulletstorm sucked but I also thought Heavy Rain and MW2 sucked so my ratings of games tends to differ from mainstream media.

Thing is most of them have been playing FPS that way for years. Only blind single console owners will act like it is something new. Sorry but why give points to Killzone 3 for something Metroid Prime 3 did 3 years ago? It's nothing new. Most of the gaming community accepted that Wii controls were better than controllers for FPS long ago. Just because a bunch of single console owners are just now figuring this out is no reason to give a game a better score than it deserves.
TheDivine  +   1653d ago
If i reviewed the demo and beta with move i would score it lower. I HATE fps with wiimotes/move. Controller FTW!!! It needs to be taken into account that its an option but it doesnt make it the best fps ever because of move lol. You review on how fun/good a game is and how much replayability it has.
Inzo  +   1654d ago
Does any one know if Japan even likes FPS games?
gdogg979  +   1653d ago
Can't say for killzone 3.but I loved bulletstorm..I must have played the demo like 5 times.wouldn't stop until I was top of my friends list.

So pre ordered epic edition..gears 3 beta baby!!

Can't wait

Harukanaru Toki no Naka de 5

already the fifth game ? i recall seeing the third last year ..this serie really has a fast growth
DK_Kithuni_71  +   1653d ago
Personally I think the Bulletstorm demo sucked.
Seferoth75  +   1653d ago
Nice Rune Factory was 3 points from being rated higher than Killzone. Cant wait to pick that game up
Raider69  +   1653d ago
Has i suspected Bulletstorm is going to score higher than KZ3!Its all about fun against the same!And fun its about to win!
blackburn5  +   1653d ago
Ladies and gentlemen the well known Move and PS3 hater Seferoth75 speaks again. He is pro Wii and takes a shot at the PS3 and Move any chance he gets. His opinion about Move means nothing. On topic. In my opinion BS AI is way to stupid. They practically run straight at you as if they want a grenade up their @$$.
CanadianTurtle  +   1653d ago
Keep in mind that the Japanese are very different from us when it comes to video games.

They skip work and school for a "Dragon Quest" game. You heard me right.

Whats popular there, isn't really popular here, and vice versa. Just remember the Japanese don't even play FPS games as much as we do.
