Funny games are tough to do. Arguably, you could count the number of genuinely funny videogame narratives on one hand. Monkey Island, Ratchet and Clank, Sam and Max…and we're beginning to struggle.

Eat Lead: The Return Of Matt Hazard features the titular hero, star of his own line of celebrated games on the fictional Marathon label who's recently down on his luck and eager to step into a next-gen adventure after a prolonged absence.
