In a follow up to the full retail release of its predecessor, Matt Hazard Blood Bath and Beyond follows Matt Hazard once again as he attempts to save the world. If you like side scrolling shooters in the vein of Contra then you will probably enjoy this title, despite some of the problems. As one would expect, since this is now a XBLA title, the production values went down a notch and the game even references that with its own self depracating humor as you progress through the adventure. The original title was voiced whereas this title just had text on the screen that you would read, as one example. The game will also reference things such as the bad reviews the original title received and it is nice to see the developers turn a negative like that into a positive thing in this newest title.
