Strangely enough there was never any large storm of bullets which kind of disappointed me, but other than that it was a decent game. it was a completely serious take on the shooter genre without many jokes or fooling around and that’s pretty appealing in the current market.

While this new edition doesn't add enough to make it worth buying again, for those who missed it, this is one ludicrous and ludicrously fun shooter. At its core, Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition, like the original version, has everything you'd expect from this kind of game: harrowing gunfights, crazed enemies, and explosive set pieces that provide a brief respite from all the harrowing gunfights with crazed enemies. But it's the non-shooting ways you kill people that make this game unique. Not only are you wearing boots that can kick people into spikes or exposed electric wires, but people actually fly away from you slowly so you can shoot them, too. Similarly, you have a whip-like device that pulls enemies toward you and your gun. All of which adds up to one unique but effortlessly fun sci-fi shooter.

As for what this new edition adds? Well, aside from looking and sounding better, it has a new way to play the game's story-driven campaign that gives you all the weapons when you start, as opposed to one at a time. It also adds new arenas for the game's challenge and co-op modes, both of which have you fighting waves of enemies. The thing is, even with those new maps, those challenge and co-op modes won't hold your attention long -- not as long as the story mode, anyway. Also, if you like your shooters to be serious, this isn't your kind of gun game, as it's over-the-top in a bloody, gory, and silly way. But if you're down for a shooter that has a dark sense of humor (and, of course, you didn't play the original already), Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition is like a kick to the gut ... into an exposed electrical wire.
