Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard

  • Excerpt: Imagine that game characters lead a virtual life next to the games. From their Hollywood style villas they look at life with pink glasses and spend their money on a lot of blingbling. Unfortunately not every game protagonist has it equally easy, something that’s also the case with Matt Hazard, a fallen game hero from the eighties.

  • Excerpt: Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard is very close to being a good game. While playing the opening level anyone who's made gaming one of their primary pastimes in life will struggle not to raise a wry smile or even let out a mild chuckle at the gamer-focused humour, and because of this you want to love the game.

Eat Lead: the return of Matt Hazard Review

PlayDevil
15 July 2009
  • Summary: " Eat Lead: The Return Of Matt Hazard " is a real mixed bag. The standard of the animation is often pretty poor, although sometimes it’s difficult to tell whether this is intentional or not. Howevere, what it does mean is that a lot of the humour falls pretty flat. It’s also very specialist stuff, so unless you’re a pretty hardcore gamer, and have been for many years, you may find that a lot of the jokes you just won’t get anyway.

Funny spoof of game industry falls flat during play.

Common Sense Media

  • Summary: Parents need to know that Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard is a parody game, and that even though the game talks about previous Matt Hazard titles, there are none. The game is a self-referential spin on the video game genre which tosses in clichés from the past twenty plus years of gaming.

  • Excerpt: Don’t bother doing a Google or Wikipedia search for Matt Hazard. Unlike Mario, Kratos or Master Chief, Hazard is a fictional video game icon. His “return” is all part and parcel of Vicious Cycle Software’s parody of the last 25 years of gaming. It’s a clever concept and I’m sure the team at Vicious Cycle had a lot of fun making the game, but will you have as much fun playing it?
