Just four months after the release of Bullet Soul on Steam comes Bullet Soul Infinite Burst. While there was originally a gap of several years where the Xbox 360 version was concerned, electing to release an enhanced game in a subgenre as niche as the bullet hell shooter so soon is bold indeed.
So yes, this release is more of a humble Bullet Soul 1.5 than a full-fledged successor. As such, most of what I wrote about the game in my original review is applicable to this release. The game is still the same terrific representative of the glory that bullet hells can offer, ushering in new players by using mechanics that lend themselves to newcomers, yet avoid being condescending towards veterans. Despite the general similarity, Infinite Burst does bring a few additions of note, both silent and deafening.
