Well, that's exactly what I was thinking when Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard dropped through my letterbox. Is he a superhero? Is he just a game character that was a hit in the 80's before I was born? In fact he was none of the above, as this was actually Matt Hazards first appearance in a video game, ever. The game is a parody of the last 25 years in gaming. Think of it as the Scary Movie of the games industry. So with that in mind I didn't really know what to expect when I booted up the game.
The first thing you notice is the lack of options. There's no multiplayer via splitscreen or on Xbox LIVE, but instead just an option to play the campaign mode. I thought this was rather poor and to be honest a bit lazy. Never mind though, maybe the campaign mode will keep me on the edge of my seat. Or maybe not...You see, when you are playing the campaign mode, its rather confusing as you don't really know what's really happening, as such. You have to get in the mind set that this was all real and not just made up, because if you don't you will become very confused..."
