In a world where seemingly every FPS game is another military shooter that takes itself too seriously Bulletstorm is a breath of fresh air. It doesn't take itself seriously at all and that is what makes it awesome.
The singleplayer is about 6-8 hours long on normal and you have to beat it on Very Hard for Gold. It starts out pretty easy but, gets difficult towards the end of it. There are 8 different guns each with special firing mode that you unlock. You get unlocks by buying them with the points you earn by doing skillshots, which are different ways to kill enemies. The skillshots are gory at times in a good way and fun, especially when using the leash (which I love).
Echoes mode is a high score mode where you try to beat a level with highest possible score, earning stars for doing so. The more stars you earn, the more levels you unlock. It also comes with an online leader board that you can use to compare your scores with your friends.
Arena mode is basically a survival/horde mode where the goal is to a certain amount of points using skillshots to continue on to the next level. This mode can be played by up to 4 people online and allows ranking up and character unlocks as you go.
All in all, this game is very good. I would absolutely recommend a rental and, like me, there is a high probability that you will end up wanting to keep it.
