Its a frantic game from the brief spell i have had a quick blast on with only 4 modes available online,free for all,survival.overrun and team death.
Strange decision to drop Horde Mode and i do hope this returns on the planned downloadable content in the next month or so.
Im not really going to say that the online blows me away at present as constant dying is not much fun and i will say it again this is one extremely tough online game.
Weapons need more grunt and after picking your player of choice be it a engineer,medic,solider you are not left with much to fight with,engineer is good as he can lay turrets but all he has to defend himself is a pistol and this is a complete waste of space,the other thing he can do is repair the barricades and turret guns with his welding type pistol,and believe you me he is going to do this a hell of a lot as the barricades and turrets take damage very quickly.
At present I'm on the fence not entirely blown away but my view may well change with a little more playtime,one thing for sure if ever a game requires Team Work then this is that game.
You really need 4 good friends and some good tactical decisions if your going to get anywhere in this game online
Try as i might i am just having trouble really liking this game online,all it makes me want to do is get Gears 3 out of the box and play the Horde mode that is not included in this game with is a tragedy of the highest order.
Single player is pretty decent but i don't get the gears Feel with this and was expecting big things from the new developers of Bulletstorm......[people can fly] but at present I'm in the camp that thinks they have ruined it if im honest.
Was so looking forward to this game and its still early days so my opinion may change but I'm not convinced because its not exactly bowling me over even after the short 2 hours online and about 90 minutes single player.
I see on the Xbox live site we have the seasons pass for 1600 points already,couple of maps and another couple of game modes in 2 weeks,something that should have been included from the of as this ships with minimum content and only 4 modes of play and 4 multiplayer maps and 10 is the norm in this day and age.
Hope i change my mind about it and if your on the fence regarding this then give it a miss........
