Showing 1-6 of 6
19 January 2010
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.
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.
Excerpt: Well, we can't say that action game developers aren't trying to come up with new ideas. Unfortunately, they're running out so much that some of these ideas wind up being really strange and often just don't work. Project Gotham Racing developer Bizarre Creations and Sega have teamed up to bring us The Club , a new brutal action game where players must quickly plow through trashed environments killing hordes of stupid bad guys in various stylish ways.
Summary: Première bonne surprise de cette année 2010, Matt Hazard : Blood Bath and Beyond nous fait oublier -en partie- la déception apportée par Eat Lead. Ce petit jeu PSN est fun, joli et offre un goût de rétro que certains apprécieront fortement.
Pros: L'humour et les références, Joli, Coop
Cons: Manque de variété flagrant, Difficulté qui peut faire criser
