Played some Bulletstorm on 360. Whoever said it is nothing like GoW is an idiot. There is even a powerslide.

Game is horrible. I am on Act 2 part 2. I have put in enough time to have a very valid opinion. I think the FOV is something like 55.....horrendous.

So, games with sliding are now like GoW by default? I guess Crysis and FEAR are exactly like GoW too. I still don't see any validity to comparisons between GoW and Bulletstorm. Bulletstorm is a fast-paced, run & gun first-person shooter that rewards the player for experimenting and taking risks. GoW is a slow, cover-based third-person shooter that rewards the player for hiding behind cover and avoiding risk. There are superficial similarities (same engine, camera wobble when sprinting, sliding) but the core gameplay is fundamentally different.

You may or may not enjoy Bulletstorm but insisting that it's like Gears of War is just silly. And the default FoV is 85, btw. You can change it on PC.

Sooo...when my screen turns red it says "FIND COVER" and AI stays behind cover all the time to fire at you, and you can find cover every 10 feet. Weird. NOTHING LIKE GoW!

CORE GAMEPLAY IS EXACTLY LIKE GOW!

And I said I am playing it on 360, cause there is no way in hell I was going to spend more than a rental on this POS. The FOV sucks ass. I feel like I have blinders on while watching a 42 inch LCD tv.

Story is horrible. Pace is horrible. Sidekick commentary is horrid. Swearing is so juvenile it is unbelievable.

Rewawrds you for what? Being creative? You mean, leash, kick, shoot? wow. How amazing....the only difference between the 2 games is 3rd person vs FPS. Which is hardly even noticable considering the FOV and play style.
