Summary: In this X-Play Review, Morgan checks out the new multiplatform title 'Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard'. Does 'Eat Lead' successfully combine gaming humor with a good game? Find out in this review.
Pros: Top-notch voice acting from Will Arnett and Neil Patrick Harris, Some dead-on parodies of gaming clichés
Cons: Extremely repetitive when it's not busy being frustratingly difficult, Obtuse boss battles with inadequate feedback, Sloppy aiming and melee combat, Comedy does little to offset the blandness
Conclusion: Videogames should be allowed to take the piss out of one another, especially with gentle affection (the princess always is in another castle, after all). But Eat Lead is far from a compelling parody, taking weak, ambiguous pot shots at other games.
