I feel very conflicted about Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition, a.k.a. Bulletstorm: Remastered. Not so much about the game itself—People Can Fly’s shooter is unabashedly dumb, but in a fun “We did this on purpose” way that mostly works. And the Skill Shot system (more on that later) is still great.
But before we delve into the game itself, it’s worth talking up front about the existence of this remaster. I don’t know what bizarre series of backroom decisions led to Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition, nor why the publishing rights transferred from EA to Gearbox, nor why Gearbox was interested in the first place.
