Bulletstorm brings new furor to first-person shooter action thanks to its signature 'kill with skill' gameplay. The game tells the story of a futuristic confederation protected by an elite band of mercenaries: Dead Echo. When Dead Echo members Grayson Hunt and Ishi Sato learn they've been working for the wrong side, they're betrayed by their commander and exiled to the far reaches of the galaxy. In Bulletstorm, Grayson and Ishi find themselves surrounded by hordes of mutants and flesh eating gangs in an abandoned paradise. They have two objectives: get off the planet alive, and exact revenge on the man who sent them there.

Players step into the role of Grayson Hunt complete with an arsenal of over-the-top combat moves and outrageously large guns. Bulletstorm's array of distinct 'skillshots' produces unprecedented levels of frantic gameplay and yell-inducing satisfaction. The skillshot system rewards players for inciting mayhem in the most creative way possible. The more insane the skillshot, the more points players collects to upgrade their character and unlock weapons, which then allows them to execute even more creative moves and exaggerated skillshots.

Ratings for Bulletstorm

Rating Description
Presentation Bulletstorm does a great job of establishing a reality and sticking to it. The story is fun right up until the end, and the Leash sells the point system.
Graphics Bulletstorm sets a new standard for UE3 games, with some great models and texturework complimented by brilliant color and great lighting.
Sound Bulletstorm's soundtrack vacillates between orchestral bombast and cliche'd shooter industrial, but the voicework is fun and well acted - assuming you can deal with the toilet humor.
Gameplay Bulletstorm generally plays well, with some weighty but responsive shooting. The combo system also clicks. Unfortunately, Bulletstorm gets a bit repetitive in its last act.
Lasting Appeal Bulletstorm is seriously short - it took me five and a half hours to get through the campaign, echoes mode lacks the charm of the main game, and anarchy mode grows repetitive.
