BY BRENDEN SHEA: The first-person shooter has been a staple of the gamer diet since the early days of Doom and its Wolfenstein predecessors. Over the years, it has seen more than its fair share of excellent entries. From Quake, to Half-life, to Halo and beyond, shooters and their frenetic energy have kept people coming back for more. Now, shooters are more refined than ever before, but in recent years we’ve had some decidedly old-school bashers come along and revive the older style of games like Quake, not the least of which is the most recent Doom.
But there’s another game that had a similar style of frantic, knee-jerk shooter reaction, and that was Bulletstorm. Now, with the release of the Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition on PlayStation 4, it was time for me to go back and revisit this old, oft-forgotten classic. And boy, is it a classic.
