4.5/5 Pitchforks Released on Feb. 22, 2011. PS3, Xbox 360 Rated Mature “Bulletstorm” is an innovative tale of revenge that pushes the boundary of creative destruction and over-the-top innuendo through wonderfully mindless violence that entices from the first fired round. The 26th-century first-person-shooter game follows Grayson Hunt, the leader of a military sanctioned assassination squad known as Dead Echo, and his plan to murder General Sarrano - Grayson’s foul-mouthed commander who betrays the trust his assassination force after they discover Sarrano’s ordered targets have been civilians. “Bulletstorm” kicks off to a fantastic cinematic beginning with Grayson and his comrade Ishi Sato interrogating a bounty hunter.
