Duty Calls Is A Quick And Brutal Stab At Call Of Duty

Look away, Call of Duty fans. Bulletstorm's Duty Calls parody game viciously sums up the Call of Duty experience in one painfully funny four-minute experience complete with boring briefings, bloody screens, and the obligatory slow-motion shoot-out. Watch us play it.

If you plan on downloading and playing Duty Calls, don't watch this video. It's a full play though of the game from start to finish.


The Halo-inspired diorama video Bulletstorm's creators released last month could be considered homage if you looked at it sideways. Duty Calls, on the other hand, feels like a direct attack against one of gaming's most successful shooter series. I'm not saying it isn't hilarious and to some extent spot-on. It's just all a bit mean-spirited.

But that's okay. Bulletstorm looks like it'll be fun, but I don't see it converting the Call of Duty faithful any time soon.

DISCUSSION

Look. I am not defending Activision or IW... But I think Treyarch deserves a little defending. They are the top CoD developer now. After the way they have handled WAW and Black Ops, they get a tip of the hat.

Treyarch is making CoD still fun. IWm not so much. IW crams so much useless shit in a cod game and say its its new and improved and blah blah blah.

Anyways, this parody was lame and stupid. I chuckled once, that was it.
