Review of Bulletstorm
Sometimes a game comes along that completely changes the rules. Bulletstorm did that for First-Person-Shooters. (FPS) Many FPS games use the same concept, which is point and shoot. With Bulletstorm, you do not just simply "point and shoot." Oh no, it is much more than that.
Bulletstorm uses a new concept of "killing with style." You can use multiple weapons for combos, the environment and other players all for style points. Different styles of killing unlock different achievements. The point of each level is to finish the map in a fast time and with a lot of points.
I was apprehensive to this style of gaming at first. However, after I sat down to play the game, I fell in love. It was something that I have never played before. Not only was the concept completely different for a shooter game, the graphics were amazing. About 10 minutes after starting the game for the first time, my apprehension disappeared.
The Multiplayer operates on a similar concept of the campaign. Except, in multiplayer, you work with a team of friends to gain as much points as you can without dying in the time limit. You can compete against your friends or work together to maximize your total points. The multiplayer has a good amount of maps to play on.
Perhaps it would have been cool to see the style kills in a competitive multiplayer, but I don't see how they could have incorporated it effectively. Bulletstorm's multiplayer may not appeal to die-hard COD fans, but if you give it a chance, it grows on you.
