Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond [Xbox 360]
19 March 2013
Excerpt: With its newest iteration, Blood Bath and Beyond, the Matt Hazard franchise has cemented itself as the king of the game parody market. Much like the of recent years, Hazard looks to tap into the general media unconscious that we have developed over the years and use it for comedy; in this case mining the 40+ year gaming collective.
Excerpt: Side scrolling shooters are a lost art from, and back in the eighties there were a few key contenders battling it out for the dominate coin eater in the local milk bar, one of those contenders was Matt Hazard.
Conclusion: And completing the game in co-op you have to do that with a friend or a second controller. Overall: Honestly wait until its a deal of the week. Its a very short game or 1200MS points it really is not worth. Especially with the lack of online co-op. If you have the points to spare go for it. Hope you like it.
Review: Matt Hazard: Blood Bath & Beyond (Microsoft Xbox 360)
7 April 2010
Summary: Matt Hazard is a character everyone wants to give a chance, but his games thus far don’t give players to many reasons to do so. Blood Bath & Beyond is a step in the right direction, but it’s too shallow with a few nagging gameplay issues to readily recommend it at $15. It’s balancing won’t do the title any favors as the difficulty gets pumped up fast, which is a plus for those looking for their next run-and-gun challenge, but it will easily turn away those not so in tune...
Summary: It is hard to directly pinpoint the thinking behind moving Matt Hazard from FPS to 2.5D shooter. Maybe it was the acclaim lavished upon Bionic Commando: Rearmed or Shadow Complex’s reimagining of a classic game play style in a 3D engine, perhaps it was inspired by its own fake history and Contra rip-offs, or maybe it was simply a easy way to make use of the 3D assets the team had left over from the first game.
Excerpt: It appears that the developer’s of Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond are trying to use Contra as a medium for showing a bunch of levels based on popular games and films, such as Bioshock , Mirror’s Edge or Back to the Future . It’s supposed to be likeable and funny. The story tasks Matt to stop an old enemy killing a younger version of himself, hence Matt has to go after him through time and computer servers. All filled with video game classics and guided by an IT guy.
Excerpt: Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond review Game Over Online - http://www.game-over.com Matt Hazard, the fictional video game icon, is fast becoming a non-fictional…fictional…video game hero. Blood Bath and Beyond marks Hazard’s second real video game outing. His debut in Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard was less than dazzling. Funny? Sure, at times. Fun to play? Not so much.
