Anyone buy this?

It's actually a pretty decent side scroller. If anyone's interested, I'm down for some co-op.

I felt that it could warrant a purchase. In terms of video game parodies, the French-comic book based Asterix & Obelix XXL2: Mission Las Vegum did a similar thing and it was stellar.

And the live-action trailer for MH was AMAZING.

@Ghostiet: Agreed with the trailer. I hope the brand succeeds for the sake of the things that aren't games. I could picture a movie or TV show that wouldn't be complete trash.

I was thinking about it, but i'll wait till after the reviews.  The price is a little steep ($15)!

I'm surprised they are still trucking with the Matt Hazard brand. I thought that game was a massive critical and commercial flop.

I just got done playing the Trial.  I thought it was a piece of trash and I was happy when my time expired.  Deleted

It's still a pretty funny idea though, and the developers are at least tongue in cheek about the failure of the game.

Only played the demo, but it would have been so much better if they had stolen Shadow Complex's control scheme. I know that it's supposed to be contra style, but come on, we have multiple dirctional inputs on our controllers now. Let's use them

The price was a little high, and it didn't help that the controls were pretty annoying, when you have played Shadow Complex.  I liked the idead with shooting in the background, but it annoyed me how you were running the way you aimed, and if you hold LB/RB in you couldn't move at all. Apart from those things, I thought it was good enough. Defiently liked the idea, with the different worlds, but I will most likely not buy it.

Demo sucked, never buying it.

I'll download the demo when I get back from classes later this afternoon, but it seems pretty cool. I'll probably pick up the OG Matt Hazard game, mostly for the points & the next-to-nil price tag, but this one seems legitimately good. 
 
Also, I had heard differing statements regarding this, so I guess EpicSteve maybe you can answer. Is the co-op local only, or online & local? I read somewhere that it didn't include online play, others said that was untrue, and I'm just confused now.

I'm giving it a chance, since I kind of enjoyed Eat Lead despite it's huge problems... biggest disappointment of 2009 lol
