Excerpt: Bulletstorm is: a bromantic comedy starring two meat-heads and a chick with huge norks; a lesson in creative swearing and vulgarity; an interactive compendium of interesting things you can do with a gun; a middle-finger to the current customs and conventions of the FPS genre; and a shout out to its...
Conclusion: Flies style orgy of guns and grotesque. Gray is equal parts suave and slob… ok… 98% slob and 2% suave and he talks pretty much like any member of the Marines that I’ve ever been around which is to say unfiltered and damn hilarious.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is I’m not entirely sure how I feel about Bulletstorm. I was present at the game’s unveil at E3 last year, when the legendary Cliff Bleszinski took to the stage to unveil his latest creation.

Pros: Energy leash spruces up the action, Skillshot system constantly rewards you for stylish kills, Cool arsenal of weapons and moves, Outdoor environments look fantastic.
Cons: The excessive profanity stops being funny very quickly, A lot of predictable shooter cliches, Limited, buggy multiplayer.
