Bulletstorm is an entertaining shooter much like Gears of War but has a very different style of multiplayer. I am going to keep this simple because other reviews most likely go into more depth but here are the key points.

2 Good:

--> Multiplayer is very teamwork based. Not many games online require this precise of team based skill. (This allows you to make new xbl friends by sheer frustration of losing countless rounds unless your a friend rent/buy this game)

--> Echos allow you to replay the campaign but get to the good stuff. KILLING!

2 Bad:

--> EA Sports hates on anyone who rents (Online pass)
--> Campaign only takes 5-8 hours to beat depending on difficulty

Verditct.. RENT

..why? After campaign, echos, and getting lvl 65 I don't see much else to do and that's only approx. 30-40 hours of gameplay out of the disc.

Pros:
1.Graphics are great.
2.Controls are easy to pick up.

Cons:
1.Short single player(9 hours on hardcore)
2.Terrible AI for your partners. They ignore the enemy most of the time and just run ahead leaving you behind to deal with the mess.
3.Enemies attack and target you 90% of the time. Sometimes they run up to a party member,get melee,get up, and run straight towards you.
4.Worst dialogue ever! It was funny for about 20 minutes tops. Then, it became that annoying little kid that never shuts up and only know hows to communicate by cussing every other 2 words.(You know the one you meet online when playing your favorite game. Yeah THAT kid.)
5.Boring gameplay. Yes it was fun for about 3 hours. Then, it hit a brick wall of boredom. There's not much to do once you complete campaign.
6.Echo mode is dumb and boring. All you do is replay parts of campaign missions to earn points or highscores.(Sleeping yet?)
7.Multiplayer is amazingly disappointing. Its basically horde mode from Gears of Wars except you can only advance to the next round by earning a certain amount of points.(There is no actual player vs. player gameplay!) Also its next to impossible to die in mutliplayer. Everybody has a leash so the enemies have zero(0) chance of killing anyone! I have yet to see anyone die online.
