Rumour: It looks like Bulletstorm is being remastered

2 min read


Remember Bulletstorm? People Can Fly and Epic’s somewhat puerile shooter was crass and crude, but it was also a heck of a lot of fun. It may have often been vile on its surface, but it was a terribly underrated game, with cool combo-chaining mechanics and smarter design than its presentation would suggest.

It looks like it may be getting Remastered. It’s been suggested by Polygon video guy Nick Robinson that there’s a remaster on the way. In a flash drive from Xbox, he found a folder called Bulletstorm Remastered, which includes some tasty high-resolution screens of the game.

Here’s what we said in our review:

“I sincerely mean it when I say that you are fooling yourself if you think that Bulletstorm is just a dumb shooter with no real merits. What this game is, is a combination of great comedic writing, immaculate pacing, technical excellence, fresh gameplay and a whole bunch of very good design choices all shoved into one package, with each element playing its part without missing a beat.

Bulletstorm isn’t perfect and it’s not going to change your life forever but what it will do, is take anywhere between 7 – 15 hours of your life, and fill them with raw, unadulterated fun and if that’s not what gaming is about, then I don’t know what is.”

Hopefully, the remaster is there to remind people that the game exists, and pave the way for a follow-up – because there’s not been anything quite like it.

Take a look at the screens:

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
