Review Bullet Party
Choppy FPS arena game

Laggy, poor design, horrible controls
Bullet Party for Android is a laggy online FPS shooter game that tries to mimic counter strike arena-shooting action but ultimately falls flat on it’s face, similar to how you often will after dying.
The levels in Bullet Party feel generic and almost copied from other games, and the spawning points in the levels are as bad as they could be. Once I stopped dying instantly upon spawning, I found where people were spawning and then proceeded to kill 7 people in a row instantly before someone got up on me and proceeded to do the same thing I was doing. In terms of graphics, everything looks okay, with the levels looking a little bit better than the generic blocky player models. But I would imagine its not hard to create the generic looking levels that look like something straight out of Counter Strike 1.6.
When I wasn’t dying or spraying bullets all over the screen, I was lagging - and badly. It wasn’t due to my internet connection, but rather in terms of FPS. I was glitch walking around and I couldn’t focus my shots very well at all, and when I killed someone it was only because everyone in the game dies so quickly. I didn’t feel proud of myself, in fact I felt guilty for killing others who were having exactly the same problems as me. They just stood there being butchered. OH THE HUMANITY! It doesn't help that sometimes when you die there is an add that makes it so you can't move and you get shot. You mine as well forget about having a good score.
Bullet Party is definitely a bullet party, but none of them will go where you want them to with the awkward controls, laggy fps, and level design. Matchmaking works quickly, but that will only make you hate the game faster.
