In this February 22 Retro Ad Replay, we’re going back 11 years since Bulletstorm first launched on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. It was February 22, 2011. This first-person gun implemented a unique “Skillshot” mechanic that rewarded outrageous kills with huge point bonuses. Players can kick, slide, and chain to destroy their enemies in innovative ways.
GameRevolution awarded Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition an 8/10 out of our reviewhighlighting advanced “mess”, “bulk, texture and framerate” highlighting, “Skillhot Matching System” [still being] equally fun and engaging, and refreshing “creativity and variety of weapons”.
At the time of its original release in 2011, Bulletstorm was difficult to take down. It plays and presents itself like something ripped from a parallel reality, where instead of striving for realism, Hollywood lays pieces and endless fascination with World War II. , the shooter simply continues a lineage inspired by DOOM, Duke Nukem, and perhaps a gratuitous way of Platinum’s Mad World to get a good measure.
Moving into 2017 and Bulletstorm’s Full Clip Edition remake releasing into a playable Nukem in-game world, DOOM has been reborn to critical acclaim, and Quake Champions continues. just outside the horizon. It looks like we’ve come to the fact that Bulletstorm came from the very beginning, but that doesn’t make its brand of absurdist carnage comedy any less enjoyable.
If you haven’t played the original Bulletstorm, the Full Clip Edition is well worth your time if you just wanted the official version and were always wondering what its unique butcher franchise could be like. That said, despite the obvious effort towards graphics improvements, it’s simply a much harder game to sell to those who’ve played the game. $60 MSRP isn’t exactly cheap, and while it’s true that there have been plenty of game buyback opportunities to keep the net afloat, the fact remains that the original PS3, Xbox 360, and PC versions don’t look all that bad. . Call it a symptom of releasing a remaster below the 10 year mark, but that’s the reality.
Regardless, petty worries won’t stop you if you simply want the game, and if you choose Full Clip Edition you’re sure to have a blast with its wacky skills and quirks. The visuals are quirky, funny and somehow affect the story just like before. There is an argument to be made that the likes of DOOM and Quake Champions are indebted to Bulletstorm for warming up the public with their macho gore-shooting style that is clearly showing a resurgence right now. Keep your expectations regarding Duke Nukem, and you will enjoy a great experience.
