Sure, the campaign is not the longest thing ever (maybe 6-8 hours) but this is not the type of game you would want to play for 20+ hours. While I enjoyed the story, the over-the-top banter between the characters does come across as a bit sophomoric so you will either love it or hate it. Personally, I liked it- some of the best video game dialogue since Kane and Lynch 1.
I have played multi player a couple times now and it's fun for a short time. As far as I can tell there is only one type of mp mode which is sort of like a Survival mode (similar to Firefight mode for you Halo fans). I found it odd that there was no competitive mp, only this Survival coop mode.
I would not recommend owning this game but it is def worth a rent.
Bulletstorm is an amazing game. The first time I played through I thought the storyline was pretty good. The skill shots made it very interesting although you can literal just camp behind a fence or cactus and just leash enemy's into them. Once I beat the game I knew that there was going to be a second but they did a very good job at making me and other players want to play the second one. But once you try to play it again it gets much more boring. You have limited guns and once your done with all the skill shots you get bored very fast in campaign. The multiplayer isn't that great. Its horde mode over and over and over again, maybe more gametypes could make it more interesting but overall this isn't the game to buy for the multiplayer. The echoes I find pointless but it could be cool if you played as another echo team and maybe control a squad. You could compare this game to Halo ODST, no PvP multiplayer but a beta to Gears 3. This game is not a buy game! I was hoping the game would be free roam like border lands but overall the only point to this game was for a storyline that opens up a sequel, the mindless killing and for the Gears 3 beta. Plus the commercials were AWSOME!
FUN FOR THE 1ST HOUR, THEN REPETITION, REPETITION!

BLOWING GUYS UP, KICKING THEM AND "THEN" BLOWING THEM UP, SHOOTING THEM IN THE "AREA BETWEEN THE LEGS" (WOW THIS EDITING SYSTEM IS REALLY STICKY WITH TERMINOLOGY)....GREAT FUN FOR THE FIRST HOUR OR SO. BUT AFTER DOING THIS A COUPLE OF DOZEN TIMES, IT GETS A BIT OLD.
YEAH YOU CAN GET CREATIVE AND THROW GUYS AGAINST FENCES AND THE SUCH....BUT IT GETS OLD FAIRLY QUICK.
I SAW THE INTERVIEW WITH THE DEVELOPERS ABOUT HOW THEY WANTED THIS TO BE A DIFFERENT GAMING EXPIRIENCE FROM THE SHOOTERS OUT THERE. OK, THEY GOT THAT AS IT IS "DIFFERENT", BUT THEN WHAT??....
GOOD GAME BUT NOTHING TO WRITE HOME ABOUT, AS LEAST IN MY HUMBLE EXPIRIENCE AS A SHOOTER JUNKIE :-)
