Bulletstorm is such an interesting proposition – on the one hand it appears to be as dumb as dogshit, loaded up with the kind of pinball machine mechanics that can often subvert actual gameplay. But on the other hand, we can’t wait to play an FPS shooter that attempts to ramp up the scale and switch things up a bit. This new trailer, released in preperation for the upcoming demo, is looking rather spiffing.
An FPS, first and foremost, has to be about shooting things – but we’re really enjoying the effort that Epic and People Can Fly have put into the details, and the extra mechanics that are hopefully going to set Bulletstorm apart from the dirge of shooters being released in 2011.
Here’s hoping it delivers on the promise.
