TSA looks into Bulletstorm's brand new FPS mechanics.
Has Bulletstorm Revived The FPS? O_o ARE STUPID? COD Black ups sold crazy well So did Reach And now kz3 is out
If kz3 wasn't out would we get these articles? The game is utter crap these reviewers complained about kz3 story yet this gets a free pass? It has no multiplayer? Reviewers complained kz3 story was short yet this is shorter and it gets a pass.... I've played this game and have brought it back to cex today for a credit note this game is CRAP and the bias media are ruining gaming
these "new" mechanics were used in the Bloodrayne games on the PS2
I think what they meant is that a lot of people have been saying that they are bored with shooters, because no matter how much better they make the graphics, sound, etc. most games feel very similar to each other. Bulletstorm is still similar to others, yet it throws in some other things to try to keep it exciting. Call it arcadey gameplay if you will.
Just because people keep buying redundant mediocrity doesn't mean it revives anything. I find it funny how certain gamers are proud that they buy basically the same game every year. MW,MW2 and Blk ops are all interchangeable. Especially in the Multiplayer department, now most of you will disagree of course, but that's only because you're in denial, but it's true.
Thats why you should have tried the demo. The way i figure out if a game is good or not is if my 4 year old son likes it or not. He liked Bulletstorm, enough to play it for a couple of days, but then he hasn't touched it since, which is the perfect metaphor for this game. Its a weekend shooter. Its not a bad thing, but im really sick of these noob media fairies not giving respect where its due.
It has for me. Way more fun than all the standard shooters. I loved reach, kz2, exc but forgot how much fun games used to be when they just threw as much over the top action at you as possible. People are sick of cod, buy this. Sick of kz3, buy this. Its a great game but dont buy it for the multiplayer, its ok but no deathmatch exc. Its not new but its gaming going to its roots, just fun. This is the type of game you play with friends over just laughing and passing the controller around.
revive WHAT now?
Revived? The FPS genre has been doing better than ever. :/
Uh, Hell No -because that game sucks... LoL Seriously come on' I wouldn't even call that game a FPS, more like a shoot em' up comedy kick enemies and laugh at the silly design of it all.. -but to the disagrees if you like it you like no big deal, enjoy it, -but it's far from Revising FPS.. (Come On' Really) If anything Crysis 2 will be doing that.... I just can't take Bulletstorm, serious.. So I just don't see how it could be @ DantheMan81 - ha..ha.. much less then that.. (No offense but it's just not my type of FPS game, but if you liked it that's cool enjoy it. (and all jokes aside I played the whole demo to the end) .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
Let me guess, you play the demo for 5 minutes.
Actually I played the demo for 15 minutes and it was enough to know this is a rental or a bargain buy. 5 hours and NO mp? If you buy this full price you either have lots of money to spend or have very low standards.
Geee, I didn't know FPSs need reviving.
I know, wish they would die out though. Too many of them. Market is stale.
When where FPS dead?
No. But Crysis 2 has http://www.youtube.com/watc... Watch in HD. Pls rate
its actually never died anyway...
First Person Shooters are making a comeback! lol
I believe it might had. All these war shooter FPS now, aren't as much fun to play as some of the classics. First Person Shooting should be about shooting, not hide and seek as they've recently become. Bulletstorm looks like a breath of fresh air in a stagnant genre that used to be much better before it got made over complicated and based on ongoing conflicts and political agendas. Not to say it ignores modern day FPS conventions, but it embraces a few of those like rechargable health, optional duck and cover and iron sights. Personally I knew this game was going to be for the better of the future of FPS because I tire what it is now.
I personally wouldn't say it has revived the genre as a whole. However, it's bringing something new to the table so that should definitely be commended.
The main character looks like Wolverine on crack. I really disliked the demo, and I really dislike the style and potty humour of the game. For me this game is awful in all areas.
Nope,the game is soo chezzy, they took unreal and added a leash....wow
Where does "Revived" come into it? But yeah, it is a refreshing change. If you can still kill someone with a few shots to the head then that is what most people will stick to though. My gripe with it is the use of the Unreal engine, which makes games feel very similar - if they really cared about doing something interesting and different they would have programmed an in-house engine and I guarantee the game would be even better, not that it would be an easy feat or business plan to do so.
Not just no, but HELL NO. To me it lacks any real purpose with the lack of a tactical approach. Maybe a 5 year old wants to do an electric lasso and enjoy the wierd humor from this title.
I wish the FPS genre would die. Or at least go on some kind of hiatus. I personally hate shooters, I can see why many like them, but for me the industry has focused too much on them. Every genre has shooter mechanics in them now, it's become like "how can we make this more of a shooter?" We need a break from them. Let different genres rise and fall, new types of experiences. That's just me though.
Thank god FPS are coming back. I was tired with the overflow of RPGs and JRPGs this generation...
Prototype gets surprisingly positive reviews for such a mediocre game. Bayonetta gets unbelievable acclaim for a DMC clone Generic FPS Bulletstorm gets hailed as the saviour of FPS Sometimes I wonder if all you need to get great reviews is to release an average multiplatform title alongside a AAA PS3 exclusive
Got to love how every exclusive is automatically the best.
I haven’t played a game as creative as LBP2 No hack and slash as good as GoW3 Heavy Rain, the best story and unique experience KZ2/3 have the best graphics, AI, multiplayer MAG, the best team-based multiplayer UC1/2, the best 3rd person action adventure Ratchet the most fun platformer GT5, the best simulator Motorstorm 2, in top 3 arcade racers Demon’s Souls/Valkyria the most immersive RPGs So, on the whole, PS3 exclusives are typically top-notch
Killzone is not anything special in the FPS genre. I'd take Battlfield over MAG any day if I wanted large scale team based warfare. There are far better racing sims than GT5 but you get what you pay for, there is no better sim available on consoles. Motorstorm, Ratchet, Demon's Souls and Valkyria pure opinion. I'll give give you GOW, LBP, Heavy Rain and Uncharted, inFAMOUS also. Like I sad not ALL exclusives are automatically the best.
“Killzone is not anything special in the FPS genre.” Best graphics, AI imho. Also the only shooter that has such a slow, tactical feel to it with the weight on weapons, good change from the CoD/BFBC/halos “I'd take Battlefield over MAG any day if I wanted large scale team based warfare.” Not comparable. Battelfield is closer to KZ2 in execution. MAG is in a league of its own, it takes team-play and tactics to an extreme. “ There are far better racing sims than GT5 but you get what you pay for, there is no better sim available on consoles.” Agreed. But we are only talking of consoles here. “ Motorstorm, Ratchet, Demon's Souls and Valkyria pure opinion.” Yes. But in case of Ratchet, Demon’s souls and Valkyria, thats opinion shared by almost everybody who has played these games. “ Like I sad not ALL exclusives are automatically the best.” Not all, but most exclusives are of a higher standard than multiplats, at least on PS3.
@ thief no just no, all opinion Lbp is mario w a level editor castlevania is better than gow3 alan wakes story is the best reach has the most content, modes, creativity w level editor mag is pretty good, not the best uc1/2 are great, gears are as good rachet got stale on ps2 gt5 idk il give you that but its the most boring racing game ive ever played demons souls hell yea top rpg this gen equal to lost odyssey So on the whole ps3 exclusives are top if thats all you get to play, if you can play everything you would realize exclusive means nothing, besides your opinion isnt everybodys as mine isnt.
No. Rage, Duke Nukem Forever, Crysis 2, Brink and Battlfield 3 are all on the way. FPS needs no reviving.
seriously, try ACTUALLY playing the game and the answer is a fat NO! stupid blezinki fanboys, or watever his stupid ass name is.
Only for those dumb enough to think the genre is in trouble.
XIM3 will revive FPS on console, FPS does not need reviving on PC http://xim3.com/
It rekindled my love for them, I was feeling burnt out by the same old thing over and over again, nothing new, most games copy other games and don't bring anything new to them, so while the FPS genre is thriving, Bulletstorm makes me at least think now of interesting ways to kill people in other games, so in that way, it's changed what a FPS is to me, I'm always looking for exploding barrels in COD ect.... good stuff.
but it's not a bad game :)
No, it put a shot of adrenaline in it's veins. See the military shooters out there made us fall into a coma, so this game, woke us up. If Brink and Duke are what I think they will be, then we will have FUN again. In the meantime I'm convalescing. It's been too many years of bed sores. Thank you People Can Fly, Thank you Epic. God Bless.
