Lots of energy contained in an old body.
A double review where I create and clean up corpses
The systematic annihilation of my Steam list continues with the completion of 2 very mechanically and tonally different games that each possess a distinctly cartoonish aesthetic. I intended fully reviewing ‘Plants versus Zombies’ and ‘The Wolf Among Us’ initially, and though both are excellent games, there wasn’t anything too out of the ordinary about either to get me energetic enough for a lengthy review. As such, I am marking this as the announcement of a new series of short reviews titled ‘Flash Boil’.

You might be able to tell if you will enjoy Bulletstorm by your reaction to the following line of in-game dialogue:
‘Take a lick of the salty taint of DOOM, you braindead biker whores!’
I find this sentence representative of the game in general. Bulletstorm is exceptionally immature and stars a cast of idiots spouting insults and contrived one liners.
However, what makes the humour bearable (and at times, even funny) is that Bulletstorm is also very fun.
