I have not been this excited about a first person shooter in sometime. I generally find the genre to be overfilled and most of the games to be extremely mediocre. But Bulletstorm has me waiting eagerly for it's release. Epic Games' newest game is releasing this Tuesday and I'll be picking it up as soon as I can.
In Bulletstorm you play as a space pirate stuck on a planet filled with man-eating plants, mutant tribes, massive monsters, and your old army platoon trying to hunt you down. All this is topped off with an over-the-top crude sense of humor. And overall a game that, unlike most of its genre, doesn't take itself too seriously. To me this just screams pure and unadulterated fun.
Even if this game didn't seem as fun as it does, I'd still pick it up for one major reason. FoxNews hates it. And simply on principle I'd have to buy it. Any game that pisses this many people off is at the very least worth a look.
The only disappointment I've found so far is the announcement of that there's no co-op play. The only multiplayer I know in the game is a horde mode where a couple players fend off waves of enemies coming at them, and the possibility of an online leader board.
I'll try to post a review of the game once I get it and play through it, or at least a good chunk of it.
What're your thoughts on Bulletstorm? And the controversy surrounding it?
