Bulletstorm Launch Trailer Kicks Some Serious Ass

If you're lucky enough to live in North America, you might have been playing Bulletstorm for the past two days. However, the rest of the world has to wait until the tail-end of the week, so hopefully this launch trailer should go some way towards helping with the wait for those unfortunate people.

Packed with plenty of action, the launch trailer gives you a good impression of some of the massive set pieces you can expect from the full game, as well as the odd one-liner, big explosion and collapsing building.

If that's not enough to make you want Bulletstorm, then read our definitive review for the lowdown on why you need this game in your life. Bulletstorm is out now in North America and hits Europe on Friday, February 25th.

Cool vid, but your review just confirmed that this game simply is not worth $60 out of box. I will wait for half price deal, which I bet will come soon.

I'm all negative mainly because of the Gears 3 beta preorder bullshit, but that's life. Some will buy it now and some will later^^

Gonna pick it up for less than half price in a month or two i think, it will happen, just look as dead space 2, already less than half price less than a month after release.

Not to bothered about the Gears 3 beta in the Epic Edition since people seem to forget that its only "EARLY ACCESS", there will be others ways to get into the beta.

Wait, is this the same Bulletstorm? That trailer had no colorful swearing and no shooting people in the asshole.

@8 where can you find Dead Space 2 for less than half price less.

OT: Wow... makes me wish I pre-ordered. The other trailers made it seem as though this game was just going to try and sell be its humor and new type of game play. Didn't know it had a story to back that up (Im enjoy videoame stories, thats why I love Alan Wake)

That's...interesting. I had no thought to check the game out because of how it was advertised by Epic and the makers. "OH LORDY IT'LL KICK YOU IN THE DICK WITH AWESOME." While it was pretty funny to listen to, it just seemed like they tried TOO hard to hype their game.

This though. This showed off gameplay, a story and a team with a fragile alliance. Caught my attention and kept it. o.o

The launch trailer could of been better imo, the idea is too 'kill with skill', yet it failed to highlight what that meant in the gameplay...

Still it looks ok, sort of enjoyed the demo, will possibly pick it up at a later date or even just rent it.

He looks like Marcus Phenix's first cousin. They look just alike to me.

Can't wait for this game. To me it looks like a cross between Gears of War, Bioshock and Borderlands. So should be great.

Great game, having lots of fun but the glitches in campaign ruins it for me. I did two vids today showing the glitches in the game. Here is one of them:

Real fun game but sadly this type of crap kills it for me. Loving Echoes mode though, shit is fun as hell and haven't encountered any glitches there.

got this at midnight when it came out. i can tell you ive beaten it already. on my way i've encountered a few glitches myself. One of the boss battles(won't say for spoiler reasons) i actually ended up inside the boss. the screen shook, went black, then i was inside, kinda hard to shoot where i was supposed to from the inside. found it pretty entertaining but 2 hours later and it was still happening. i ended up staying as far away as possible, and eventually, sluggishly i beat it. awesome game by the way, they already announced dlc......just wish theyd worry about glitches before coming out with new maps.

I have now come to the conclusion that Steven Blum is in everything. Hes the Samuel Jackson of voice-overs. Oddly his voice sounds exacly like his role of Barricade in Transformers War for Cybertron.

@6 Could that possibly be the bonus material that we get but wouldn't "get" unless we have played the previous Epic games?

@17 it actually seems like a combo of Gears and Unreal Tournament with some Borderlands shredding. Not really any Bioshock in there but very fast paced like UT

This game could fill gameinformers "dorks" of the year list all by itself. I havent seen characters look this retarded in a long time.

like all of the epic games releases it will be fun but it wont be worth the 60 bucks, if only they made the games longer or had more depth to the multiplayer i would buy their games instead of just renting them.

@ 30 - That would be unoriginality. I see the same characters and models in Gears, URT and this. Besides, it just feels like Gears + Borderlands. So basically I've already played this game twice. Pass.

I really liked the demo so i rented it on release day. I put maybe 7 or 8 hours in and wound up with a little over 500 points, i was hoping to see more after watching the interview with Cliff.
