Bulletstormmmmm!

*sprayed bullets fly past your head* Get to cover! Quick! Yes, this is a review of the new release, Bulletstorm. Released in 2011 by Electonic Arts and also Epic Games, Bulletstorm is a First-Person Adventure Shooter which takes place in 2600 A.D where the story follows the two Space-Pirates called: Grayson Hunt and Ishi Sato after their squad disbanded. This came to be after they were tricked into killing innocent civilians instead of the drug-dealers and mass murderers that they were meant to be killing.

The story starts off after their ship crashes into the planet of Stygia and Ishi is badly injured, so. You begin the adventure by escorting the Doctor into the Medical Procedures room in order to merge Ishi's Brain with the Spaceship in order to basically.. save his life. As you go looking for the Power-Cell which is needed to save his life, you get ambushed by ruthless bandits and they kill the doctor in the process. And this is where the story kicks off! You basically have to survive and find any other crewmembers that are perhaps lost on this planet too.


Since it's a first-person shooter, you acquire guns throughout the game in which you get to use. You can upgrade them, increase ammo slots and unlock extra perks that are available to the weapons. And to upgrade them, you need skill shots. What's a skill shot? A skill shot is when you do a specific shot with a weapon, killing enemies and dismembering them, obliterating them and that's how the points are acquired to spend them on upgrades. You also get a Leash, which is used to grip onto stuff and pull it back, you can also slam enemies with it.

The gameplay looks like this, pretty much. I'm only up to the fourth-act and I'm loving every second of it.

The Red circle is the ammo, if you run out of ammo, well. You can't shoot your gun. 
The Pink circle are you SkillPoints, as stated above. Kill things to get these!

Now, I quite admire this game, as it is very fast paced and keeps you on your toes. It is a very exhilarating game, as it has amazing graphics, amazing scenery and everything just slots into place. There is a multiplayer option that is included in this release, I have not played it. So I can't exactly give a review on that. However, you can find this game from basically all major retail chains, EBGames, Game, JB Hi-Fi and you could possibly buy it online, http://store.steampowered.com/app/99810/ for $69.99 USD which equates to around $63-64 AUD. It is a fantastic purchase in my opinion as terms of Quality/-/Quantity it is around the same, as is equates for value.

Once again, thanks for your support! Shif7!

  7. I've been looking forward to this game for a while now, but it doesn't interest me quite enough to warrant paying full price for it. I'm going to wait until the Steam sale just like other commenters have said.

  9. I really enjoyed the demo, I dunno if I would buy it though. I think the press over hyped the use of "gangbang"
