Features
Get ready for a fictional account of the world's most popular video game hero... of the 1980s. Matt Hazard is coming out of retirement and making his next-gen "comeback" against all his old enemies in a hilarious parody of the last 25 years of gaming.

When he finally gets the call to make his official comeback, he finds out he's not the star, but the prey. Matt must defeat the game where the programmers aren't playing by the rules. They're throwing everything at him in their arsenal from old enemies, to past environments, unfair weapons, and more, to make sure he doesn't make it to the last level.

Ingenious storyline and setting that's never been explored in a video game

Celebrity voice talent: Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother) and Will Arnett (Arrested Development, Blades of Glory)

Hilarious script written by WGA Award-winning writer, David Ellis

Unique visuals, taking on all video game clichés at once: cowboys, space marines, wizards and karate masters

Advanced point-and-cover system

3 out of 5 eggsFunny & Decent, but dark and difficult

Pros: Goofy and fun, good story for gamers. Lot's of inside jokes and humor. Shallow yet fun gameplay.

Cons: Graphics can be blah, game can be very dark at points and hard to see, and the difficulty can be super frustrating.

2 out of 5 eggsmeh

Pros: Budget title
lots of easy gamer points
Humor is good for a few laughs.
Features voice talent of Doogie Howser MD and some other guy. That one voice actor who only ever does Arnold Schwarzenegger's voice- that guy.

Cons: Painfully generic and uninspired over the shoulder FPS. Not a bad game, but mediocre; its a budget title with good reason. Eat Lead is easily overlooked by the numerous other titles that do the same exact game much better.

Basic gripes: clumsy control, dumb enemy AI, some minor but obvious glitches, annoying camera angle

In order to be original, Eat Lead tries to be zany not taking itself seriously mocking other popular games, but its humor is inconsistant and sometimes falls flat.

Other Thoughts: I dunno, but for some reason Matt Hazard totally reminds me of Michael Chiklis. 1) because Michael Chiklis is a bald tough as nails take no prisoners guy who shoots dudes on The Shield and 2) Chiklis stars in Fantasic Four as The Thing who has an almost identical catch phrase to Matt Hazard's "Its Hazard Time!" 3) he's not fat, but Chiklis' appearance produces an optical illusion that makes you think he should be and somehow Matt Hazard has that reference as well...

Also a review mentioned this game reminds them of Bruce Cambell due to the humor. Eat Lead does remind me lots of Broken Helix aka the "Duke Nukem stole lines from Bruce Cambell so lets rip off Duke Nukem but have it star Bruce Cambell and he kills Duke Nukem in it lol" game. Somehow that plot point got recycled for Eat Lead with Michael Chiklis as Bruce Cambell.

And to pad out this column, Odin cosplays Mario in this game. I think? I'm really confused by that one. Master Chef got a laugh out of me tho.

3 out of 5 eggsAn amusing distraction

Pros: This game is a good distraction, especially since I got it so cheap here on special. It's definitely a low budget production, but it's funny, witty and the cover system is definitely interesting. The variety of weapons are interesting and funny at times, a good source of distraction to play through.

Cons: Enemy can be predictable and "dumb" at times, but as a mindless game as this is intended to be, it's OK. Re-play value is rather low.

Other Thoughts: I am playing through this game now, it's been interesting so far 3-4 levels into the game. The cover system employed by this game definitely has huge potential, unfortunately, this game does not explore all the possiblities with the system. It's no Gears of War or Halo, but better than a lot of other shooters out there. With no mutipl-player component what so ever, re-play value is seriously limited, but it's dirt cheap, and for what it's worth, it's good enough...

4 out of 5 eggsEasy Achievements

Pros: No joke, this game does have a great story line. It comes off a bit Bruce Campbellesk but to me, that is a pro.
The achievements were unbelievably easy to get. I had this game for about 3 days and had already had most of the achievements. Ex) Starting, pausing and watching the credits gives you ~ 100G
The soundtrack is very catchy

Cons: Game is very linear. Very easy and short. The soundtrack may be great but the set-list is very short, one might grow tiresome of the same song for 5 hours.

Other Thoughts: $27.99 is a good price for this game.
