Gaming Nexus writes: "Matt Hazard, in theory, is meant to be more of a comedic joke than an actual game. The problem with Vicious Cycle's first attempt with the series was that those sentiments rang true in terms of the value of the product. The game was atrocious from a gameplay standpoint and it was more of a technical joke than a comedic one. Vicious Cycle went back to the drawing board and decided to keep things simple this time though and came out with a winner in my book. This time around they managed to not only deliver vocal laughs to the player, but an enjoyable gaming experience as well."
