24 Games until Xmas is our special feature to build up to the end of the year, however that is not all.
Each member of staff was asked to provide their top twenty four games of the year; we have taken this list and will reveal a game each day until December 24, at which point we will unveil our number one game of the year.
There are some fantastic titles on the way and when the final game is revealed, that’s where you come in.
Once the number one game has been revealed we will then create a poll with all 24 games and ask you to vote on your own personal game of the year, this poll will run from December 24 until January 2nd, at which point we will announce the ShopToNews readers Game of The Year 2011.
We hope you are enjoying counting down our best 24 games of the year with us and if you have just joined us then make sure you check out the other games in the list.
Here’s the next…
18 Games Games until Xmas: Bulletstorm
Bulletstorm is the first game to come out of the collaboration between People Can Fly and Epic Games. Playing as Grayson Hunt your humble pirate ship is attacked by a powerful federation, which soon sees you crash landing into a hostile alien planet from where you must seek revenge from the man who did this.
This game has been given a place on our top 24 list due to its environments and wacky combat system, the huge contradiction of its genre serves to enhance the fun which can be had. Bulletstorm markets itself as a shooter, although this is clearly a shooter in which merely shooting somebody will leave you feeling like you’re playing it wrong.
Not only are the weapons and action over the top, but the graphics provide the same level of lunacy, making it not only a pleasure to play, but also to watch.
Although Bulletstorm has no real person vs person multiplayer, it does have some fun co-op missions in which you and others try to gain the most points while fighting off waves of enemies. This leaderboard race helps to enhance the games life.
Unfortunately we don’t have a review ourselves to which we could refer you, due to the game being released before the changes to the site. We have played Bulletstorm though, so much in fact that our fingers are bleeding, therefore we can do no more than highly recommend it.
Currently sat at a reasonable 84 percent average on Metacritic, Bulletstorm is a must-not-miss this year and at only £18.85 for Xbox 360, PS3 and £14.84 for PC download it’s hard to see how anyone could possibly pass this game by.
