Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond Review

 

A comedic 2d game. Not much of that anymore.

Since MH: BBB is an XBLA download, its graphics and sound are not as good as a disc-based game (the very start of the game lampshades the lack of voices compared to the first game). However, it does a good job with what was available: stage backgrounds...

Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond

 

Matt Hazard, the fictional video game icon, is fast becoming a non-fictional?fictional?video game hero. Blood Bath and Beyond marks Hazard's second real video game outing. His debut in Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard was less than dazzling. Funny?...

With Blood Bath and Beyond, Vicious Cycle Software has struck a balance between humor and gameplay that was sorely lacking from Hazard's previous outing. Sure, the game can be quite frustrating at times (then again, Contra was too) and the co-op...

The story tasks Matt to stop an old enemy killing a younger version of himself, hence Matt has to go after him through time and computer servers. All filled with video game classics and guided by an IT guy. You get the impression that the shakiness of...

Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond Review for the XBOX360

 

He is back again... was he even gone the last time?

Wacky humor and references; Co-op mode

that is only local; Controls can get in the way; Uneven pacing at certain sports; Expensive

Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond

 

Two dimensions, only one joke

Old-school shooting and jumping ; Some decent bosses ; Get to run through Rapture

It's not clever or funny ; Running and gunning is miserably unambitious ; Mostly copies other games

A greater problem is that the run-and-gun shooting, while pleasant enough, is miserably unambitious. There isn’t much here that Contra or Metal Slug haven't been doing and perfecting for years, aside from a few decent bosses.

Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond

 

Matt Hazard: Blood, Bath, and Beyond is a fun little romp from start to finish. If you like the classic 2-dimensional side scrolling shooters of old, this game will be right up your alley. The title has its shortcomings, such as the difficulty and...

Matt Hazard: Blood Bath & Beyond Review

 

Matt Hazard is one of those countless Duke Nukem clones that's recently spawned up, but unlike most other, the Matt Hazard games take it lighthearted, and most of all, make fun of the games industry. While the retail version of Matt Hazard, called Eat...

Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond..

 

Yikes.

Two Player (local) co-op; not a long game

Monotonous gameplay, terribly unfunny

If it wasn?t bad enough that the game pokes fun at its previous release, saying it can be picked at a bargain bin near you and continues the self-deprecating with a quip at the end dealing with the dreadfulness you just played through, one can?t help...

Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond [Xbox 360]

 

With its newest iteration, Blood Bath and Beyond, the Matt Hazard franchised has cemented itself as the king of the game parody market.  Much like the Epic, Scary, Dance Movies of recent years, Hazard looks to tap into the general media unconscious...

Amusing Parody ; Full Co-op ; Clever Set Pieces

Derivative and Dated Gameplay ; Occasional Frustrating Difficulty ; Constant Quipping by Hazard ; Lunar Lander Stage (Space Hazard)

If you are desperate for a Contra clone with some decent tongue in cheek parody, Matt Hazard may be your game; otherwise you may want to steer clear.

Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond - Review

 

After the great concept that fizzled out in the original Matt Hazard, many gamers felt as if it would be a good thing if the imaginary videogame star stayed retired. Despite the errors of the first game, D3 unleashed Matt Hazard Blood Bath And Beyond...

As the game stands, it offers only same-console co-op, which is a disappointment given the game's classic roots. The same generic, eighties-inspired hair metal-inspired score fits right in with the gameplay to offer some nostalgia for those who...
