Bulletstorm is distinguished by its sense of style and crass humor as well as excessive violence and profanity, rewarding players with points for performing increasingly ludicrous and creative kills. Bulletstorm does not have any competitive multiplayer modes, preferring instead to include cooperative online play as well as score attack modes.
Upon release, the game received positive reviews from critics who praised the game's voice acting, characters, graphics, action, soundtrack, humor and storyline, but has amassed a great deal of controversy following its release.
Bulletstorm takes place in the 26th century, where the universe is run by the Confederation of Planets. Grayson Hunt (Steven Blum) is the leader of Dead Echo, a black ops team under command of Star General Earl Sarrano (Anthony De Longis). Following Sarrano's orders and assassinating alleged criminals, Dead Echo kills a man known as Bryce Novak. Immediately after, they discover Novak was a civilian reporter, documenting civilian deaths caused by Dead Echo. Realizing they have been tricked by Sarrano, Grayson and his team desert and become space pirates on the run from Sarrano's forces. Players take the role of Grayson Hunt a few years after his exile, who had since become a drunken space pirate.
