  • Summary: Bullet Witch is set on a bleak planet earth in the year 2013 with human kind on the brink of extinction and hideous demons creating a tidal wave of destruction and havoc. All hope of mankind's survival rests with Alicia, a witch blessed with magical skills and a swift trigger finger. Set in a realistic world, Bullet Witch includes numerous features inspired by American horror and Japanese fantasy monsters. Combining shooting and magic, Bullet Witch takes advantage of Xbox 360's advanced physics engine by showcasing massive environmental damage, explosions and destruction. Through Xbox Live online entertainment network, Atari, Inc. provides fans with downloadable Bullet Witch content post-launch such as character costumes and extra levels. [Atari] Expand

  1. If you enjoy shooting, fast paced action, and beautiful environments, Bullet Witch should be a winner for you or, at the very least, will give you hours of pure entertainment.
  2. There is something inherently appealing about a sexy, buxom witch wandering a postapocalyptic landscape shooting zombies with flaming bullets and casting spells that bring down lightning or cause spears to shoot from the ground.
  3. 65
    Like most third-person action games, Bullet Witch has its share of problems, but it was designed with considerable replay value in mind for those who find the game's sweet spot.
  4. An average third-person action game the leads you by the nose and doesn't give you too many choices to make. You'll spend the bulk of your time battling the same bad guys, killing walnut heads to unlock areas and occasionally battling some pretty impressive bosses.
  5. A pretty short game and the gameplay that you do get isn’t very good. Spend your game playing time elsewhere unless you’re truly desperate for more Achievement points.
  6. Bullet Witch is almost comically bad. Although it tries, this game never comes close to getting you to care about any of the characters and it's over far too quickly. Then again, I'm not sure I would have enjoyed it any more if it had lasted longer than two hours.
  7. The Xbox 360 certainly needs more titles from the Japanese development community, but Bullet Witch is far from a show of support.

    I actually find this game surprisingly fun. It's also pretty difficult to review I think.

    On the one hand, it's graphically a bit rough
    with a slightly choppy framerate, the gameplay is simple, the storyline is fairly simple, the enemies are a bit cheesy.

    On the other, it's actually very fun and captivating, with some eye-catching, challenging and highly enjoyable battles and stages, compelling and engaging level structure despite its simplicity, great supermoves, a memorable protagonist, and is overall a game that I played from start to finish without even planning to (I simply got hooked).

    It's a quality title. I just wish I knew why!!

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Honestly I didn't know what to expect when I started playing this. It wasn't monotony hell though. The story has lots of promise. They could've made a great game, instead you get this trash. The only real break from the monotony of shooting at enemies is the 2 bosses that are available. The problem with this is the difficulty scales a ridiculous amount against them. *kinda spoiler* The first boss fight is on a plane which is very easy to accidentally jump off of, and the second boss takes so long, with no checkpoints mind you, and he has a one hit kill. So if you almost have him dead after a grueling encounter and he lands his AoE one hit kill attack on you you get to start the whole fight over again. *end kinda spoiler* Its just frustration after frustration with no real reward. The game gets stale almost immediately. I would never recommend this to anyone, EVER! I can usually see both sides of an argument, but I cannot see why someone would rate this game higher than a 6.

    I rented this game with my brother and my friend and we took turns enduring it's frustrating gameplay. The concepts in the game are actually rather interesting and the art was decent. I just wish there were more than about 5 kinds of enemies the whole game. Literally more than 90% of the combat was with the same type of enemy behaving in the same exact way.
    The best part of playing this game is the stories you get to tell later of some of the worst games you've played
