Excerpt: Let’s deduct the words Bullet Witch. The first is all about an insational rain of bullets, the second about a series of supernatural powers that come in handy to get rid of those things the first word doesn’t do much about.
Conclusion: All in all, I love this game and I don't feel that the small shortcomings that it may have out way the great story and game play it will through your way. Do yourself a favor and pick this game up now. Ignore all the magazines that say this game is too hard.
Excerpt: Dressed in black and possessing magical powers, Bullet Witch’s heroine may very well be a witch. But one lacking the warts, large hat and all round ugliness, evidently so because it simply wouldn’t be as marketable towards those strange types that are attracted to pixilated women.
Conclusion: Alicia has two modes of attack: her Gun Rod—which can be modified to shotgun, cannon and Gatling gun forms as well as upgraded—and her spell circles—rings of spells called up by the LB trigger and unleashed by aiming and casting.
Excerpt: The thought of witches usually evokes childhood images of evil old ladies with greening skin, seeping warts and chins the size of jacket potatoes.

Excerpt: Bullet Witch has something for everyone. If you like zombies, it has plenty. If you like explosions, it has that too. It even has something for people who like girls in leather and schoolgirl outfits. About the only thing Bullet Witch doesn’t have is great gameplay.
Conclusion: Overall the game suffers a variety of technical issues and a number of shortcomings. The game’s lack of interest and uninteresting gameplay may keep players away from this title. The game and the console’s potential altogether were not put into good use.
Summary: “Bullet Witch” is most definitely a rent for most people, but I urge everyone to give this game a serious chance. It’s not as bad as many gamers out there makes it out to be and it shows great promise if Cavia were to improve upon the formula a lot.
Pros: -Decent replay value for achievement or difficulty lovers., -Cool main character., -Perfectly balanced weaponry, including magic., -Neat skill point system., -Nicely scaled difficulty helps beginners immensely., -Practically nonstop action from start to finish., -Cliche, but cool story and setting.
Cons: -Sound is forgettable in every way., -Voice acting is sub par., -6 stages seems a bit short., -More variety would’ve helped this game a lot.
Summary: Bullet Witch is a third-person shooter that tries to rely on a shallow gimmick rather than focusing on things like solid gameplay and decent looking graphics. Instead, the main focus of the game is that you play as an attractive woman and you have a big gun.
