  • 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.

    This isn't such a bad game. It's fun to play, looks ok, sounds ok and has some pretty cool set peices. It's no Gears of War but is more than playable and enjoyable. It captures the gothic vibe nicely and has a feel of the filsm The Crow and Underworld about it. Only dead fish go with the flow! Don't be a sheep! Make your own mind up and try this game out. Expand

    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!!

    Bulletwitch was a game with high-loads of potential as soon as it stepped its way on the shelf of the game stores, sadly it didn't sell too well, only going above 25.000 units sold the game just didn't make it, the A.I was alright but poor at the same time, Graphics were slightly shabby for the game year when the graphics should have been better, that's what everyone else says, but now its my opinion.

    Bulletwitch was my favorite game when I was about 7 years old when it first came out and always gave me a hard challenge, even on the easiest difficulty, the adventure willing world brought me a good game to play back then, but some of the world design was done slightly poorly, but the game had an Interesting story, as well as Characters, spells and gun-rod designs, the A.I wasn't that bad in my opinion.

    Now, I'm rating this a '7' due to my own Enjoyment and the problems/pro's with this game.

    God, this game sucks. The controls are lousy, the framerate is terrible. The AI is the stupidest I've ever come across, invisible walls everwhere and I have NO idea what's going on in this story. Expand

    Sucks. I've played through it. The start-up movie is decent until some slow japanese song kicks in and crappy voice overs are added. Graphics wise, its okay. Controller layout sucks but takes a while to get use to. Alicia "looks stylish" in the few moves that she has. These zombie army guys, floating brains repeat each encounter and each level. There isn't really a direction or goal. I didn't even know I beat the game until end credits started rolling, I was like "finished already?" Rent. Expand
