Bulletstorm

Postby legopelle » Sun Feb 27, 2011 8:57 pm UTC

Why isn't there a thread about this game already? It's fun as hell.

I'm not much of a FPS kind of guy, but I enjoy Mass Effect and Battlefield. This game however is one of the best I've played. It doesn't take itself too seriously and passes the line twice to make it hilarious. Almost a parody on itself, and definitely on the genre.

Serrano was so much of an Magnificent Bastard I enjoyed every minute of him on screen.

What's your thoughts?

I'm having a lot of fun. Extremely immature but the gameplay works. There's a lot of variation on how to kill stuff. A LOT. Only weapon I hate so far is the bouncing ball thingy. Awful.

I thought the immaturity made the game, I don't know, sincerely juvenile? Anyway, I loved it.

The bouncing ball thingy is extremely practical. Large damage radius to which you are mysteriously immune to, insta-kill almost anything and the charge shot is ridiculously powerful. Also the Bully achievement, where you knock an enemy down with a ball just have it explode in his face.

The best weapon is however the sniper. God is it useful.

Sniper charge shot is HILARIOUS! Hitting one guy then dragging him o ver to his friends and BOOOM.

Finished the game last night. Magnificent bastard indeed.



Drill and flailbomb weapons are the most fun. It's how I handled most of the minibosses.

I completely underused thumper though :(

The sniper charge shot is indeed hilarious. The tastelessness of killing an enemy with his rigged friend is entertaining.

Who said people who curse have a small vocabulary?
Might we even expect a sequel?

I found myself shouting GIGA DRILL BREAKER way too often. The mini-bosses I thought were most easily killed by the machine gun's charge shot. One to damage and one to kill.

So did I until I realized it was intsta-kill in small spaces.

hehe. I'd prefer... taking my time, unless I was getting overwhelmed. I did like doing the skeet-shooting in open spaces, thump 'em up and take em down. Barely used that quadruple barrel shotgun though.
