Eat Lead isn't even in the same ballpark of suck that Bad Day L.A. was, but both games were built on a really funny concept that I hoped would be fertile ground for the writers to satirize videogames themselves, and neither came anywhere close to delivering on that promise.
Unlike Bad Day L.A., Eat Lead isn't a complete waste of time. In fact, there are some very likable elements to the gameplay, namely the cover system which is well designed if slightly buggy in implementation (aren't most cover systems?). The game is very challenging, imploring you to use the cover effectively, especially in boss fights that are more complex than just simple hammering away on a larger enemy. As shooters go it's definitely B-list. By no means a must-experience, but not a completely worthless affair that will make you break out in hives."
