Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond Review
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.
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
