New Bulletstorm screens are pretty bad-ass

See all 12 high-res screens in the screenshot viewer

A few weeks ago, Epic announced Bulletstorm, a new Unreal-engine game being developed by People Can Fly. It's an intergalactic revenge story on a mutant-infested paradise planet, and it rewards kick-ass, creative kills. Now that we've seen some visuals, we can say: Yes, that is what it looks like.

The game was criticized for likely being "just like Gears of War," and the screens do have a Gears-ey look to them, but the same could be said for most Unreal-engine games. The colorful foliage suggests a prettier environment to defile, and the "skill shot" kills remind us of The Club... and there's a little Crackdown-ness to it too. Plus, as we mentioned when the game was announced, we totally dig any sci-fi shooter that doesn't make us play as another damn space marine. And does it not look bad-ass?

But, as always, our optimism is just optimism until we play the game.

    That's the best looking Unreal Engine 3 game I've seen.

    I have very high hopes for Bulletstorm, but will it be as good as Bulletball???

    Color in an UE3 shooter? Horrifying! Game looks really awesome actually.

    The main question with this for me is whether it will drag me away from MW2

    @Embolado, Shot to enemy's balls + headshot = MERCY +50 (I did not make that up, I swear it!) Gears cover and shooting system + loads of guns and upgrades + crazy story + People Can Fly = BEST FPS EVER!

    Colorful flora, sterile futuristic architechture, over-ruggedized weapons and generic brown baddies stuffed together and somehow it still makes sense. I'm impressed. With stat text popping above enemies' heads it can almost be confused with Borderlands. not necessarily a bad thing.

    Looks like a gritty Ratchet and Clank from those screens.

    Teabag of DOOM +150

    This DOES look pretty bad-ass
