GiantBomb writes: "Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard is a dull, repetitive third-person shooter that attempts to get by on its sense of humor. The whole game, from the title (this is the first game featuring Matt Hazard), to its achievements, to some of its bosses, plays off of gaming's history and cracks jokes that people with a knowledge of games will get. The catch is that most of it isn't very funny. Matt Hazard himself is a sort of Duke Nukem-like gruff action hero. But Duke Nukem was already sort of painted as a comedic character, making Matt Hazard... a parody of a parody? While I could sit and dissect the game until we all go crazy, let's just cut to the chase. Matt Hazard's action is bad, but not bad enough to be funny. And the bits that are supposed to be funny aren't funny enough to make the bad gameplay excusable."
