That's kinda the premise right? Parody other games to show how stupid some of these things are?
The problem with Eat Lead is, instead of making fun of such games in a good way (GEX) they instead become one of those games.
You go from laughing at other games for such silly antics to realizing "wait, this game is taking all of these horrible things that make other games bad and putting them in this one, why the heck am I playing this?"
It's no fun when the game suggest "man, isn't stupid in games when the mechanics don't work and the graphics are awful?" and this game has terrible mechanics and terrible graphics.
And it's not funny. Just stupid. And difficult.
Worst game ever made, and not because that's what it was trying to be and that's funny, worst game ever made because it's the worst game ever made. Period.

From the reviews I was expecting a game with OK gameplay but a fun concept and script.
What I got was, well, just a terrible game. Sluggish controls, bland script, boring board design, buggy cover system with enemies coming from angles designed to make the available cover useless and my biggest pet peeve, boards of solid black.
I have an HD TV, I turned the brightness up, the screen was solid black. For 2 straight boards I struggled through looking around trying to find the path, a path, any path, any THING that was identifiable as a place to go. Literally couldn't tell if I was moving or if I was running against a wall, much less actually able to see the next destination.
This is the only game I have ever gotten that I haven't bothered to finish.
Don't waste your time, drop this from your queue and get something else.
