  1. It is buggy, ill tested, and not much better than draft material. With that said genre fans may find a little something to admire with Bullet Witch; whether it is Alicia's magical powers or some of the lively boss encounters.
  2. Had Bullet Witch been a launch title, this bitter pill could've been swallowed, but with so many other great choices out there like "Gears of War" or "Lost Planet," there's simply no reason to play this. [Apr 2007, p.54]
  3. Bullet Witch is a game that could have been great, but instead fell flat on its face.
  4. While the effects look fantastic, your spells are always a few button-clicks away, and setting them up breaks the flow of the battle.

    In a time when gamers are constantly looking for a "next-gen" experience, Cavia has put together a game that feels like it was made for the original PlayStation.
  6. With its occult themes and flying ammo, Bullet Witch aspires to be a gritty action epic in the "Devil May Cry" vein, but it lacks the design chops to pull off the job. [Apr 2007, p.89]
  7. The gameplay is riddled with bug-induced frustration, uninspiring combat and a sluggish control system that lacks any kind of invention. [Mar 2007, p.88]
  8. Typically, poor graphic performance is just a sideline to how a game performs, but here the lousy shadows and contrasty scenes detract from the action just as much as the dreadful AI and thin premise. As a result, Bullet Witch should be completely avoided.
  9. To get an idea of what exactly Bullet Witch is all about, try to imagine a game in which Devil May Cry, Chaos Legion, and Resident Evil are all rolled into one...except that game turned out to be complete trash.

    The game's biggest defect lies in its terrible early-gen PS2-grade graphics. I haven't seen anything this blocky since the last time I played with my Legos!
  11. And Alicia is hot, though not sexy as one might expect. Whoever they hired to do her voice work sounds hot, in that she sounds stupid. All of her lines are read woodenly, like a teenager reading aloud in class.
  12. The Xbox 360 certainly needs more titles from the Japanese development community, but Bullet Witch is far from a show of support.

    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.

    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!!
