Best FPS developed by People Can Fly, sure.

If this is better than Painkiller then I need to pick this up yesterday.

Better than Half-Life 2? Not even close (like light-years behind, somewhere between zero chance and no way). The game is fun but come on, the story is really (and I mean really) bad or was there even a story? Seemed like a prologue to the sequel to me. I'll admit though that there were some funny lines in the game and it was really fun early on but then it started to get kind of repetitive and considering how short it is, that's not very good. 
I'd give it about 7.5/10 while Half Life 2 gets a 9.4/10.

It's great that you enjoyed it a lot though, our taste must just be really different.

 

Pretty much this 100%, and then some... I'm not going to make a personal attack on your opinion, although if Bulletstorm to you was the best FPS shooter you've ever played, beating out said games.... That really says something about how much your opinion of games can be taken seriously. I know this is simply your opinion you are stating, yet a part of me keeps hopin you are kidding, like a late April fools joke. Better than Half Life 2? Really? The story was good for a few chuckles but it got old very fast. The story seems to have been written for 13 year old boys strugglin with their sexuality and puberty all at once. It was a very simplistic story, yet made no sense, and ultimately left me (and most others) very unsatisfied. I love my games to be funny at times. But I'm much more one for intellectual humor, thoughtful humor. Rather than bold, in your face, 'funny when I was 13', type of humor. All that being said, the game as a whole was barely mediocre. To make statements like this, to be honest, is kind of embarrassing. As a whole, the game is a mediocre 6/10, at best. Let the raging nerds begin (:

It's quite disturbing and funny that I am alone on this. LOL.

But I genuinely think this about Bulletstorm. I never in a million years expected it when I put the disc in.

Story doesnt matter, and there is no need to take it slow or choose said stealth option etc.

In a world of games trying to be realistic, especially in the FPS genre it's refreshing to play a game that goes out of it's way to be a game. Just pure fun, like the original Doom or Duke Nukem 3d.

It seems to exist just to make you smile.

I love it. And I'm not at all sorry I do. I'll say again. I think it's better than any other shooter this gen. Including Half Life 2 and Reach.

Except Half Life 2 didn't come out this gen ;D

No he wont need it.

All the thingshe mentions which he didnt like is exactly why in todays climate of games I loved.

Dont care for the story at all. It was Duke Nukem humour and brilliant gameplay. All in a Duke Nukem style. Absolutely loved it because it didnt take itself seriously. It was never meant to be nothing more than a game.

Brilliantly done.

Touche. You are entitled to yours just as much as we are entitled to ours.

But games evolve and that's what I like about gaming. Gaming is not just about fun anymore, not to me at least.



I haven't played it yet,but I will once I beat all of these other games. To many games and not enough time. lol



I think it's the best shooter this year but then again we've only had Bulletstorm, KZ3, and Crysis 2.  Will need to see what the rest of the year brings before we can call it the best this year.
