The only person who could claim that chainsawing through human flesh is tame compared to something else is Cliff Bleszinski and that is exactly what he has done.
According to him Gears is tame compared to Bulletstorm because while we may be able to massacre locusts in Gears it still has an undercurrent of loss and redemption and that drives the story though.
Where as with Bulletstorm there doesn’t appear to be anything and in his own words
â€œBulletstorm says, you know, let’s just have fun with this, let’s just go crazy.â€
From what I have seen of Bulletstorm so far I wouldn’t consider it anywhere near as realistically violent as Gears of War. In Gears you get up close and personal with your enemy while Bulletstorm appears more arcadey.
