Knowing nothing about the first-person shooter BulletRun and its lackluster title going in, I was not expecting to come away with a large grin on my face, but that’s exactly what happened. The game is joining the free-to-play, multiplayer-only movement that is currently invading our PC’s hard drives.
There are some interesting mechanics at play, none of which are particularly mind-blowing alone but when combined turn the game into a unique experience. Myself, Ryan Perez, and Daniel Starkey (some of the Dtoid Youngbloods) got to play BulletRun at E3, and we're a bit mixed with our feelings about it.
There will undoubtedly be many comparisons drawn between Super Monday Night Combat and BulletRun, and such comparisons are not really wrong. The game takes place in a fictional TV show with an announcer, it’s a bit light-hearted, and there’s plenty of taunting. The biggest difference, however, is that BulletRun isn’t a third-person MOBA game, but is instead a first-person shooter with character abilities.
