There aren’t many games that make a big play for humour and succeed. Last year’s The Simpsons Game did it by making video games the target for the jokes. Eat Lead tries a similar trick, but without Matt Groening and his team to do the writing stuff, can it pull it off? Maybe, just maybe!
The star of the game is Matt Hazard a washed up video game hero attempting to do a Mickey Rourke and hit the big time once more. It helps that he has a very neat line in sarcasm.
