    Bulletstorm was positively received by critics on its initial release all the way back in 2011 but it didn’t sell anywhere near as well as it really should have – a wrong that should hopefully be corrected with this Switch version. This is easily one of the most inventive and straight-up fun shooters of the past ten years; its fantastic Skillshot system, tight combat and ludicrously OTT levels of violence effortlessly make up for any problems it has in the cheesy dialogue or story department. Yes, it’s missing its multiplayer component here and we’d love to see gyroscopic controls patched in pretty sharpish, but overall this is a technically top-notch port of a stellar first-person shooter that you should really check out – especially if you missed out on it the first time around.

    Bulletstorm’s linear campaign feels like an amusement park where you go from point A to B with explosions happening all around you – and that’s extremely fun. It’s definitely worth revisiting, or visiting for the first time, on Nintendo Switch.

    Overall the Switch port of Bulletstorm is technically sound, but sometimes shows its ugly face with bland textures. At its core it is still one of the most entertaining and unusual shooters around, but lacks not only multiplayer-capability but a certain swag to go with it.

    Bulletstorm: Duke for Switch Edition follows in the steps of the remastered version of Bulletstorm and brings to the Nintendo Switch a visceral and fun FPS, with an inventive system and very competent visuals. On the downside, a multiplayer component is clearly missed and it could do much more for this edition of Bulletstorm but that doesn't make this game less worthy of a chance.

    Duke of Switch Edition is a good shooter with very simple mechanics and characters that will delight every fan of the genre. Violence and action make it shine above other generic shooters of the past generation.

    How can this game be scored so low?

    This is by far the best fps on switch. Looks way better than doom or wolfenstein and is much more fun

    The only reason for not scoring 10 is the lack of deathmatches.

    The reviews of this game don't do it service. This is a solid port of a game that is LOADS of fun. The game is hilarious, ridiculouslyThe reviews of this game don't do it service. This is a solid port of a game that is LOADS of fun. The game is hilarious, ridiculously gratuitous, and the skill shot system is still incredibly entertaining! Hands down better than the ports of Doom or Wolfenstein. You can't go wrong with purchasing this game, which, when I did, was only $15. $15 for an incredibly fun game is a no-brainer. I do wish we had the multiplayer aspect, but I'll wait for next month's Borderlands release for that. Expand

I played it on PS3 back then and clearly remember that the main character was was a bit annoying. Duke fits perfectly here in the carnage. Otherwise the game is very good looking, I miss option to switch to 60 fps, but I guess they really wanted players to enjoy the nice looks. Great game, giventhat Switch is PS3 on wheels, I appreciate ports from ps3/x360 era. Expand
