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. Given that the series is a parody of the video game industry, perhaps the change in direction from a third-person shooter to a retro 2D side-scroller is just what the doctor ordered to make Matt a little more endearing to gamers and a little less Hazard-ous to their wallets.
