Xbox One Review: Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition
April 19, 2017 by Admin
Bulletstorm is back…
It’s been a good few years since Bulletstorm landed on consoles, but for whatever reason…it just never got the attention it deserved from players, even though critics loved it. Fast-forward to today and a wave of new systems, plus with Gearbox now owning the IP…it’s worth seeing what they could do with it. So we get a full next-gen remaster of the campaign, the multiplayer and even a version of the campaign that replaces the main character with Duke Nukem, even replacing the voice-actor for Jon St John…the voice of Duke himself.
In terms of a visual upgrade, Full Clip Edition does it incredibly well here. It looks fresh, smoother by far and highly detailed. The combo shooter has been quite popular lately with the likes of the recent Doom entry, and while the campaign is brief…it’s clever, witty and charming from start to finish. Being able to not only shoot your enemies, but drag them to you with a whip and kick them is addictive, as well as kicking them into electric wires or spikes.etc, it never gets old.
Full Clip Edition is a great second chance for a game that didn’t get the love it deserved, although the full price for a remaster is a bit off-putting for some…I can see the attention they’ve put in to this remaster and can say it’s easily worth the price of admission. The Duke Nukem stuff was a pre-order only bonus, but no doubt it’ll be added as DLC down the road if you missed out on a code at this point.
Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition does well to re-establish itself in a way that it somehow didn’t when it first launched. It’s more polished, runs smoother, looks crisper and is addictive to play. If you missed out before, now is the time to give it a chance.
