Gamespot: Bulletstorm Review

Sci-fi first-person shooter Bulletstorm is a celebration of adolescent crassness. It is neither artful nor sophisticated, proudly wearing strings of obscenities as a badge of dishonor. Subtle it isn't; entertaining, it is. Where the meatheaded characters and forced, childish dialogue fail, the gameplay mostly succeeds, pushing you through a variety of attractive environments and encouraging you to "kill with skill."

yeah I noticed that too, wasn't that from the cliffy B dicktits article from a few days ago? lol. All hail google image search!

Perfect score! Now Crysis 2 gets 10/10 or 9.5/10

Why does it seem like reviewers always hate swearing. I fuckin love it, why do I always feel alone in this?

Why does all humor have to be sophisticated? Toilet humor is funny, you don't have to be a complete moron to laugh at it.

Calling swearing "vulgarity" make you seem like a prude.

DelbertGrady2849d ago

Because video game reviewers try to be high brow.

clearelite2849d ago (Edited 2849d ago )

Indeed they do and that's something people should take in to consideration or at least notice.

Swearing+ Violence + Fox news = automatic sales to gullible kids.

I used to fall for the same BS when I was a(young) kid.

BTW: "Oh noez, another 8, it teh fails" Oh my! :O /s

It's annoyingly childish and makes me roll my eyes if it's forced.

In K2, it was the "I'm so badass I'll swear" problem

In BS it seems to be "I'm so cool and cliche" problem

I love swearing in GTA, partly because it's contextually funny and the rest of the dialogue is solid throughout. That series has usually used swearing appropriately well.

kingdavid2849d ago

Swearing for the sake of it with no context is funny if you're <15.

bageara2849d ago

but "adolescent crassness" is only funny when your...well adolescent, or it should be. i was starting to become interested in this game because of the good scores but now those two words "adolescent crassness" has completely put me off, so i'll skip should do well on the 360 though

Troll-without-Bridge2849d ago

Because like with everything in life, if it seems forced it comes of as lame. And forced humor, forced swearing is incredibly lame.

Boody-Bandit2849d ago

Exactly. If you have to "try" and be funny? You're not. This dialogue in this game is extremely weak and definitely feels forced.

Awesome review but 8 its too high for this game

Ninver2849d ago

played it at a friends house and he returned it shortly after. Way too childish with a non existing story. Also very poor AI with no re-playability.

Quagmire2849d ago

Sounds like My kinda game!

Kurt Russell2849d ago

I find re-playability in beating friends scores, I like that old school touch that too few games have. I don't need a deathmatch to enjoy beating everyone :D
