Review: Bulletstorm Gun Sonata DLC IS a D*ck-Tit

I can’t help but feel slightly ripped off by the recent Gun Sonata DLC for People Can Fly’s Bulletstorm.  For an overpriced 800 points (10$) gamers can unlock two new echoes maps called Guns of Stygia and Crash Site, as well as 3 new anarchy maps named Sewer, Hotel Elysium, and Villa.  The real ball punch comes from the fact that the 250 additional gamerscore points that were promised for this game actually only end up being a measly 125 points.  Supposedly the other 125 G that were supposed to be unlocked with this DLC pack are for the PC version of the game, and not the console versions.  It would’ve been nice if gamers were made aware of that fact before they went and spent way too much money on the Gun Sonata DLC.

Gun Sonata DLC

EB 5/10

The Awesome – Nothing

The Not So Awesome – Everything

The fact that I got duped into shelling out $10 bucks on a half-a*s piece of DLC sh*t really bothers me.  I enjoyed Bulletstorm and was looking for some new content, but what I really got was about 1 hours worth of new gameplay, and only 5 crappy cheves to pursue.  How and the hell is that worth $10?  It’s especially frustrating when you think of some other DLC packs you’ve bought for games like Mass Effect 2 that only cost 520 points, but they add hours of new gameplay and a good deal of new cheves to go for.

Have Fun Going for the Last Blood Cheve

I’ve only played the new anarchy maps so far, but that’s all I needed to play to know that the Gun Sonata DLC is a rip.  All three of the new maps get stale within minutes, and it seems like the already dull AI went a few more levels down on the IQ chart nearly approaching the retarded classification.  To add insult to injury the specific cheves tied to each new anarchy map are glitched out to the point where it’s literally a crap shoot if you’ll unlock them or not.

Both myself and the infamous Hank the Gank each had to go above and beyond the requirements laid out for the anarchy game mode achievements.  Just know when you’re going for the Sewer and Villa level cheves that you have to double the amount of bozos that need to be killed in a certain way for them to unlock.  Even then it seemed like a hit or miss situation, which made for a less than stellar gaming experience, and undoubtedly pushed me closer to my first stroke.

Bulletstorm Style Circle Jerk on Hotel Elysium Anarchy Map

Hopefully this mini-review of the Gun Sonata DLC for Bulletstorm finds its way to your eyeballs before you get suckered into shelling out 10 bones for this unfinished rip-off.  Maybe I’d feel better about it if all promised 250 G were available, but I really think that Bulletstorm may just not be a good game for DLC packs.  I mean honestly, after you’ve gone through the campaign and played some anarchy mode the original skillshot gameplay becomes very unoriginal quite fast.  Considering that this DLC is way overpriced at $10, I give it an EB 5/10.

I suggest waiting for it to go on sale if you really feel like you need to play it.  Trust me, you’re not missing anything you d*ck-titted gamers!  You’ve hopefully been saved from wasting $10 that could have went towards a new pair of shoes, or food for your starving family…
