- Summary: Guns'n'Stories: Bulletproof is a dynamic VR western shooter that fully immerses players into the ambiance of weird Wild West. Stepping the tangled storyline, you will encounter many intimidating but comical enemies and fight Big Bosses.
Nov 15, 2017Guns'n'Stories: Bulletproof VR is a strong entry in the VR wave shooter genre. It's easy to play at lower difficulty levels, but challenging enough at the higher levels to support continuing replayability. Even in early access, it's one you ought to pick up.
Sep 11, 2017Overall it’s a lot of fun to play… it’s clearly not meant to be taken seriously so if you really want your show down at the O.K. Corral you may be waiting a bit longer yet. But if you like the idea of a stylized shootout with a bit of humour and a large dose of fantasy then you could certainly do worse than this. It’s a pretty decent price as it is but I’m sure there will be a decent discount in a Steam sale at some point… but if you’ve got a few spare dollars hanging around and you want a bit of fun… give it a go.

The Full Review
Graphically this game clearly has its own style, you start out by eating popcorn in a virtual cinema whilst a grandpa tells his grandson all about his times in the wild west, and you are portal-ed into that wild west world with a unique cartoon/team fortress-esque style. Everything looks gorgeous in the world and the sounds, animations and narrator make you feel really immersed.
The gameplay is basically a shooting gallery style arcade shooter. You are in a fixed location, and enemies run in from all angles whilst you try to pick them off as fast and accurately as possible. The fun however comes from the wide range of guns, lack of reloading and variety of enemy types and bosses to shoot.
The game is simple yet challenging and contains various difficulty modes (who’s icons are heavily inspired by Doom and Wolfenstein) as well as attempting to unlock more stars for higher scores.
From a VR Comfort perspective this game is top notch, you can sit down in a chair and enjoy the full game with little movement. With the initial pistols you may get tired trigger fingers but later on you get automated guns and more interesting options.
Mechanics wise, this game is simply point and shoot with various guns at various enemies and objects, very small learning curve.
The game on my system ran 100% smooth with no graphic issues whatsoever. I did notice 1 small bug with the starting pistols it seemed to have problems if you fire both triggers at once, only firing one gun or delaying the second shot, however you quickly learn to get into a left - right - left - right rhythm of firing anyway and gain access to different guns that require less trigger spamming anyway.
For the price you get a lot of content, fun gameplay and some level of replayability, so I would recommend this to anyone wanting a casual shooter experience in VR. However do not expect it to become more than a shooting gallery as that is the core of the gameplay. Definitely at least worth renting on something like viveport if you don’t want to fully commit to a purchase.… Expand
