The Nintendo Switch edition of Bulletstorm includes the original game, all the DLC, and Duke Nukem’s Bulletstorm Tour, a version of the game that lets you play through as the Duke, because… nostalgia.
Bulletstorm, first launched in 2011 and remastered in 2017, is a super fun, hyper-violent deathfest of an FPS that lets you play through the single-player campaign as Grayson Hunt, or take on wave after wave of enemies in co-op multiplayer. Players are rewarded for coming up with the most ludicrous, creative, and destructive ways to take down their opponents. These skillshots earn points that can be used to purchase weapons, ammo, and upgrades as you progress.
However, not everyone was impressed with the introduction of FPS icon Duke Nukem to the Bulletstorm world, since it appeared to be a lazy reskin, done without much care. In some instances, Duke, who replaces Grayson, was given new lines, but his animations still matched up with the original, leading to serious lip sync issues. They also didn’t change anyone else’s lines, so everyone refers to Duke as Grayson, which is amusing the first few times, but just doesn’t make sense later on. Even Jon St. John (Duke’s original voice actor) doesn’t sound like he’s having any fun.
Even if the Duke Nukem reskin is still rubbish, at least you get to play Bulletstorm on the Switch now.
