Wait how did Famitsu review Bulletstorm first

Cajun Chicken2651d ago

I don't know...but NOT a bad score for a quirky western FPS!

StarScream4Ever2650d ago

Japanese do like quirky stuff even if its western.

TBM2650d 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.

TBM2650d 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

Silentmerc3nary2650d 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!

gorebago2650d ago

I really want disgaea 4

KillaManiac2650d ago

Ive put so many hours into Disgaea 3 its not even funny.

Will day 1 purchase this easy.

gorebago2650d 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.

Nugan2650d 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

Zydake2650d 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?

xCaptainAmazing2650d 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.

aviator1892650d 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.

palaeomerus2650d 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.

cobpswii36002650d ago (Edited 2650d ago )

Bulletstorm will not be the better game. No fucking way.


DelbertGrady2650d ago

@cobpswii3600 - Golden rule of the fanboy: Multiplats can never be better than exclusives. No matter how good they are in reality.

gypsygib2650d ago

I know Epic can make some great games but BS is extremely boring judging from the demo.

lh_swe2650d 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.

This is of course true, I was merely speaking of things with the Epic brand.

masterofpwnage2650d ago (Edited 2650d 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

callahan092650d 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.

CBaoth2650d ago

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.

snipes1012650d 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?!

Vherostar2650d ago

only 1 score higher and they are very differnt games. The fact they got so high being western FPS is good.

Game0N2650d ago

i dont get this score scale...its retarded

Nitrowolf22650d 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_bro2650d ago (Edited 2650d 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.

ChickeyCantor2650d ago

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

Algebra? I don't get it, It's retarded!

gorebago2650d ago (Edited 2650d ago )

Algebra is easy dude - but I get you're logic - lol

ChickeyCantor2650d ago

hahah i was making a point xD

kerrak2650d ago

you mean "i'm" instead of "its"

gypsygib2650d ago (Edited 2650d 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.
