If you decided to skip on Bulletstorm during its initial release but were always a bit curious as to how it would play, this deal from HMV might let you indulge on the curiosity. The price tag of a fiver isn’t too bad at all, and it is made even better by the fact that the next best offer over at Play is £5 more.
Admittedly, Bulletstorm wasn’t the refreshing change of pace some were hoping, being fairly linear and less varied than some might hope for extended play sessions. Jon even had some choice words on its attempts at breaking current gaming conventions. Still, if you want a brainless shooter to distract you until the next big release, it’s not too shabby for a fiver. Thanks to crimsoneer @ HUKD!
Many gamers treated Bulletstorm like a disposable wrapper for the Gears 3 beta, discarding it after its delicious bonus feature expired. Which is a bit of a shame, because People Can Fly almost made a great game. Brutal action and a great sense of fun are sadly brought low by the very same cliches and overbearing storylines that Epic promised to shatter, but for £5.95, it's got to be worth a go.
Was Bulletstorm the COD-crushing, game changer that everyone hoped for? Well not exactly, in fact it didn't really break the mould at all. But it was fairly mindless fun and the skillshots added a little bit of flavour to the mix. If you find the phrase 'dick-tits', or indeed any colloquial mention of genitalia offensive, then you might not enjoy it, but for under £8it's worth a shout if you've been on the fence before. Nice one Frasr.
Poor old Bulletstorm couldn't make up its mind whether it wanted to be balls-out silly fun or just another gritty, moody FPS. And we couldn't make our minds up either. However, we can all agree on the fact that grabbing a dude with an energy whip, shooting him in the willy and kicking him into a cactus is a right laugh - and that £8.99 is the cheapest price around for the limited edition.
Bulletstorm's a great shooter that rewards you for creatively disposing of your enemies whilst you roam around the colourful environments. There are plenty of weapons for you to use, which means there's a good amount of variety in the gameplay. The epic/limited edition also comes with one or two additional treats including visual upgrades to the leash, 25,000 in-game experience points, and a peace maker carbine. The £19.99 price tag means that you'll be getting hold of this one for the same price as the standard edition and you'll save yourself about £10 on the next best offers out there.

When you just want to sit down for a bit of action, Bulletstorm's your ideal companion. Bullets'll fly all over the place, bodies'll quickly litter the environments, and you'll also shed an ample amount of blood. Trying to master obscure trick shots is pretty good fun, plus you'll be rewarded with a fair amount of points too. You can get your hands on the PS3 version from Game for £19.99, which'll save you a fiver on the next best offer coming in from Amazon.

We can expect Bulletstorm prices to plummet now that the end of the Gears 3 beta is nigh... but hey, it's really not a bad little game. In fact, the core action is a lot of fun, despite the fact that it's hyper-linear and bogged down by needlessly irritating angst. More open spaces and less open mouths would have led to a much more interesting (and much less hypocritical) game, but for twenty quid, it's probably worth picking up. Unless you want to see how far it tumbles over this next month...
Yes, I know this edition of the game has been cheaper in the past, but at the moment it's the lowest price on the market and'll save you exactly £7 on the next best offer coming in from 365 Games. Bulletstorm is great fun to blast your way through and the Epic Edition also comes with 25,000 in-game experience points, visual upgrades to the leash, a peace maker carbine, and best of all access to the Gears of War 3 public beta. Just bear in mind that you'll need to be quick if you want to play the Gears beta because it end on May 15th. Thanks to Boz @ HUKD.
The trend continues, with big budget games getting massive reductions not long after release. In this case the £15 price mark is a hefty drop by Game, making it a deal that will net you a saving of just over £8 over CoolShop. In addition, the Limited Edition comes with 25,000 experience points to start with and a weapon unlock, which makes the offer even more attractive. That said, the game itself isn’t the refreshing change of pace some were hoping, being fairly linear and less varied than some might hope for extended play sessions. Jon even had some choice words recently on its attempts at breaking current gaming conventions. Still, if you want a brainless shooter to distract you until the next big releases, it’s not too shabby for £15. Thanks to KillerHawk @ HUKD!
Time to lock and load! You can now get hold of Bulletstorm for just over £2 cheaper than the next best offer and I suggest you give it a go if you like a bit of variety when it comes to dispatching your enemies. The vast number of skill shots that you can achieve'll keep you plugged into the single player for a while and if you want to test your abilities against a tougher opponent just head on into the multiplayer. Also, blood's not the only thing to splash across your screen during the course of the game, the colours of the environment are vibrant to say the least.
