Bad, Bath and Beyond

  • Conclusion: It's a shame really; there's so much surrounding videogames that could be satirised. A genuinely good satire would be a joy to play and a sign that the medium is maturing further. At the moment, however, all we have is crude parody.

Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond Review

GamerNode
19 January 2010
  • Excerpt: I’m not too familiar with the Matt Hazard games and only know the fact that it is a parody of video games in general, using its lead character, with his fake video game history, as a conduit through which its creators lampoon various games and genres. The first game, Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard , wasn’t received very well and D3 Publisher went back to the drawing board with their eponymous hero, returning with a XBLA and PSN title.

  • Excerpt: didn’t turn out too well, despite the assistance of great voice actors like Will Arnett and Neil Patrick Harris. Not surprisingly, sales were relatively low so Vicious Cycle and D3 Publisher decided to take a new direction with another installment.

  • Conclusion: Matt Hazard: Blood Bath & Beyond is one of those games that you can’t take too seriously otherwise you will miss out on lots of humorous moments and you won’t enjoy the game fully. Though with a price point of $15 (1200 MS Points), the game seems a bit pricey, however after spending several playing the title, I feel that the game’s price is well worth the enjoyment factor you will get out of the game.

  • Excerpt: You know how the Wayans brothers make movies that poke fun at other popular films? Well, developer Vicious Cycle and D3 Publisher have put together a game that does the same for games.

  • Excerpt: You know how the Wayans brothers make movies that poke fun at other popular films? Well, developer Vicious Cycle and D3 Publisher have put together a game that does the same for games. In a side-scrolling format similar to last year's Shadow Complex (and Contra , Metroid , and countless others before it), you'll play as has-been 80s action hero Matt Hazard to save his 8-bit self.

Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond Review

  • Summary: After delivering the poorly received Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard—a dud of an action spoof—last year, Vicious Cycle Software went back to the drawing board and came up with Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond. A surprisingly good Metal Slug clone, the humor in Blood Bath continues to miss the mark, but veterans of the genre will find an appropriately hardcore challenge.
  • Pros: Fast-paced and generally well-designed, Co-op vastly improves the experience, Solid difficulty will keep pros coming back
  • Cons: The humor tends to fall flat, Wonky physics lead to some imprecise platforming, No online co-op

Hazard’s Encore Gets It Mostly Right

Game Informer
6 January 2010
  • Conclusion: Concept: Give a washed up video game hero a second chance by reliving his side-scrolling past. Graphics: 2.5D graphics get the job done but at times the hectic presentation distracts from the simple gameplay. Sound: Will Arnett's sound-alike does wonders with the game’s numerous hit-and-miss one-liners. Playability: Besides some wonky platforming and rigid aiming the controls feel very natural.
