mrnivek's Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard (Xbox 360) review

So So Shooter

You know I went into this game with low expectations and didn’t think it was all that bad. The story is cheesy with Matt Hazard being a washed up video game hero making fun of the very video game he is in. I think the game was long enough that this didn’t get too annoying. I think one of the funnier lines was when your character tells you he is going to finish things up and get the so and so achievement.

About the achievements,  you can’t beat getting 60 achievement points for just watching the credits. You don’t even have to beat the game to watch the credits either… The game was pretty generous with the achievement points and I think I got 700 or so without really trying to get any of them.

But a couple of things did annoy me during the game, first the aiming was just off. A lot of times I swear I was aiming at the enemy and crosshairs were red but still it didn’t seem like I was registering a hit. Second, I died a lot and didn’t seem to have a full sense of how close my character was to dying. One time I might just take shot after shot and still live and the other I would peak around the corner and bang. Dead… Frustrating but I kept playing.

Definitely a rent and as for buying it would have to be in a pretty cheap bargain bin.

So I popped it into my 360 and had a look, what I found was a fun game that made me laugh throughout the entire campaign.Eat Lead is a story about Matt Hazard, a "retro gaming hero of 25 years" that is back after a 6 year break from making games. This is Matt's first next gen game but there is a twist. The CEO of the gaming company has completely t...

    I like it. Really, I did. Although the game may be short, and the achievements are a joke to get, the gameplay itself really wasn't too bad. I beat it in 6 hours. Its short, but the game overall was fun. The graphics are fine, the gameplay is fine, the physics are fine, the humor was a little stupid, but still, fine. The boss battles aren't the type where you sit there for 10 hours ripping out your hair, kicking and punching the air, and screaming at your game because you keep dying. Only one bo...
