Summary: This game is a bargain bin item and it plays like one: the graphics are OK, the gameplay is average, the story is so-so and the music score is typical. But the main character quips and comments humorously in spades, and the sound effects seem pretty good. Just don't expect anything much from this title beyond some genuinely average videogame entertainment.
Summary: That is an old game with old plataform and old technology. The graphics are average but never like PS2 like some other games. If you wanna play something interesting, do not buy it. If you already know the game you you are crazy enought, go ahead.
Summary: If you played ANY of the old Hazard games, you know it is stupid. This takes it new limits. Monologue could have used more work. Sometimes it borders on humorous, but mostly even stupid for a hazard game. The controls are a little clunky. The move from cover to cover is not the greatest, which considering it really required for use, you sometimes find yourself in the open when you should not be. Graphics are mediocre. Walking and running are rather clumsy.
Summary: The game itself is a generic shooter and the controls don't feel nearly as tight as gears of war or uncharted and not to mention every gun feels like you're shooting a pea shooter. There is no sense of realism with any of the guns. The game does have a great sense of humor and at time hilarious and using a water gun in firefights is pretty funny.
Summary: Buying this game I expected it to be bad but in reality it really wasn't that bad at all. Aside from bad controls and gameplay its a decent game that pokes fun at a made up videogame hero Matt Hazard whose used to be huge during his early years but after a string of bad videogames by his developer Marathon Megasoft he is back to return to his gaming glory.
Matt Hazard Wastes A Fantastic Premise On Flawed Design

Summary: D3 totally pulled me in with their marketing campaign for Eat Lead. For those who don't remember, back in 2008, the publisher began a viral marketing campaign for “The Return of Matt Hazard,” a made-up action game hero whose made-up franchise they were resurrecting. But D3 didn’t just come up with a cute concept and leave it at that.
Summary: Yeah, the jokes are funny if your really into games, since the 90s. Game play is generic. Third person shooter with no auto-lock(sucks for you if you need it). Sucks is that it only lets you have one save slot. Also sucks that your playing it tight areas and the third person aspect gets in the way. Could've been more interesting if they had a bigger budgets and more creativity in their gameplay. Doesn't seem like a sequel is going to happen. Rent it.
Summary: Average run and gun video game. I expected more from this series considering the hype. Graphics and gameplay are decent though, which is always a plus. Just felt like the plot/storyline was weak and the missions were similar. There are a bunch of shooter games on the market, this is basically a rental in my opinion. Only a buy if you're looking for a cheap pick me up.
Summary: The game is a resounding ...Meh...while the game play is rather good, the comedy that we had hoped for in the game is not well delivered at all. I mainly recommend this game for those who want to play something that at least is slightly funny and don't mind some of the bad design choices.
