Bulletstorm Takes on Call of Duty in Recent Game Parody

I’m starting to think the marketing team over at People Can Fly is full of geniuses.  First they parodied the Halo 3 diorama commercial with perfection, and now they’re taking on the Call of Duty franchise.  This time they just didn’t make a commercial, these crazy b*stards designed a site for it with a full fledged downloadable game in Duty Calls!  It’s no joke either.  The download is about 759 MB, and requires a decent bit of processing power to run efficiently.  Basically, it’s a 4 minute-plus interactive commercial with the end being an actual Bulletstorm trailer.

If you don’t want to download the game for yourself I’ve posted a video of it below.  It is pretty comical once you play it.  Love the “boring” phrase after every trigger pull, and the dig at COD’s penchant for using the slow-mo cam while shooting an important target.  Check it out below.  You’ve been thinking that this could be the most creative use of marketing a videogame has ever seen…
