    Does Bulletstorm have a decent Single Player?

      "Decent" is a relative term. I thought it was mainly SP.
      I am interested but not $60 interested. Maybe when it hits $45-50.
      /yeah yeah. inflation, skyrocketing development costs, etc.

        I was thinking the same thing. I might be $40ish interested, but I'm not paying $60 for it.

            That would have been a good deal. I don't see it now. At least not for PC. Oh well, you snooze, you lose!

          yeah, sounds good, but the credit is applied after you buy the game at $60. I had about $30 saved up from previous game purchases and it came up to $29.

        Mainly SP? i thought it was mostly multiplayer but I hadn't been paying attention.

          I believe it has 3 modes.

          1) Single player
          2) Special single player where you replay certain sections of a level trying to rack up a high score (like the demo)
          3) 4 player co-op that I think is in small open areas (like Gears horde mode or Halo firefight) where you try to rack up score together

      I really wish the game had DM...with DM and perhaps jumping I would be far more excited for this game. I'm tempted to get it...but its not as much a sure thing for me the more I see that its not so much a really old school kind of game with new twists so much as its a game with some nods to old school games.

      I can't say for sure but my impression after playing the demo is that the game would get boring pretty fast. The combo killing system is fun at first but it doesn't feel too rewarding after pulling off some of the moves. There are boss battles in the game but I don't know how many.

      Suppose if Bulletstorm do not have an online multiplayer, then I won't buy it. :)
