Take out hordes of mutants

We apologise, in advance, for smiling through this entire editorial. But it’s looking mightily like shooting just got the fun back. In spade full’s. Facing facts, most shooters are deadly serious, and with the exception of Serious Sam, really, a gun toting gamer has nowhere to turn for proper laughter. And certainly nowhere to be scored on his ability to do the job with panache! Well, developer’s “People Can Fly” have just bought back all the fun and introduced some amazing new concepts. “Toy with Enemies” and “Kill with Skill” are phrases to live, breathe, and hopefully not die by!

Bulletstorm tells the story of a futuristic confederation protected by an elite band of mercenaries: Dead Echo. When Dead Echo members Grayson Hunt and Ishi Sato learn they've been working for the wrong side, they're betrayed by their commander and exiled to the far reaches of the galaxy. In Bulletstorm, Grayson and Ishi find themselves surrounded by hordes of mutants and flesh eating gangs in an abandoned paradise. They have two objectives: get off the planet alive, and exact revenge on the man who sent them there. But as you’re in control you have to “Kill with Skill” (we love this phrase. Can you tell?)
