Trigger Happy "Rental"

If your looking for something new and trigger happy Bulletstorm is your answer. However, be ready for a short (7 Acts, each with 2-3 Chapters) unoriginal storyline and lack of multi player (only Co-Op Horde type mode).

Pros:
-Beautiful Graphics (Island Resort Look)
-Amazing Gun Play (10 guns with limited upgrades & the leash)

Cons:
-Few glitches
-AI Doesn't really help
-Enemies have almost perfect aim and a lot of health, along with always running towards you in packs/waves which can be a little frustrating
-Getting towards the end of the game, difficulty seemed to spike
-After beating campaign, theres a serious lack of replay value
-EA pass-code (which isn't included in gamefly rental but of course u can purchase for 800 Microsoft points) seriously that is a fail since multi player isn't worth it and if u rented.
-Echo mode is basically time trial mixed with campaign chapters

In a nutshell I beat the game in 2 days on normal which I probably could have breezed through faster if I played it non-stop. I would really recommend renting before keeping/purchasing.

Kill with Skill in a shooter's paradise

I could write a lengthy paragraph to introduce the basic concepts of this game but honestly, its easier to scream "GA-DOOOOOMM OH YEAH!!!! Eat that you lousy f------s and then shoot the nearest person next to me and laugh like a maniac. If the previous action sounded even remotely interesting.........Bulletstorm might just be for you.

On the surface this game looks like any other game out there. You run, you shoot, and you kill stuff but the skill shot system adds a whole another level of depth, requiring planning and learning your surroundings before just shooting, and the game rewards the players who do greatly. It also gives you another reason to come back and play again Storywise, the game is solid but......eh confederates in space can go either way. You won't find yourself carring very much for the characters either except maybe ishi who has a constant struggle. Otherwise most characters spit more profanity than the sergeant from full metal jacket and loads of toilet humor. It will get a chuckle or two but thats all. The unreal engine continues to impress and the planet will look gorgeous from start to finish.

Overall this game was very fun from start to finish. It got a little repetitive later in the game but not horribly. The only thing I found even a little was the ending kind of ended for the sake of a sequel. What I also found annoying was the facial animations which could have really used some work but as I said earlier. This isn't a story game so I guess they get to slide by. Also, online could use a little more variety than just anarchy mode. Without mics its alot harders as communication is necessary.

I didn't expect much when I placed this on my queue. I was pleasantly surprised. Gameplay was fun. I couldn't get enough. I love the idea of rewards based on how you shoot. I really liked this system. The game was a great.
