Not Amazing, but worth the rent

The game is a parody of other shooters and videogame cliches so it doesn't take itself serious. With that in mind, you have a lot of laughs at the parodies and references they make, even in the trophies you unlock.

The gameplay and controls are subpar at best so don't expect this to compete with Killzone, Resistance, and Halo.

If you're looking for a fun game with good trophies and funny gaming parodies, Eat Lead is your best bet.

Bad

Matt Hazard Eats Lead, Dies

MY SUMMARY: Rent. Play it on Minimum or Moderate Hazard. Laugh. Return. The platinum trophy is not worth the frustratingly-hard gameplay.

PROS
HUMOROUS DIALOGUE
EXCELLENT VOICE ACTING: Characters say ridiculous lines with so much conviction.
DECENT GRAPHICS
MANY EASY TROPHIES: Most can be earned in a single playthrough.

CONS (MAXIMUM HAZARD SETTING)
Eat Lead was fun until I tried Maximum Hazard. That is when all the little quirks became unforgiveable detractors.
LINEAR, UNIMAGINATIVE GAMEPLAY
MINIMUM HAZARD PLOT: Go into area. Shoot bad guys. Door opens. Enter next area. Shoot more bad guys. Door opens. Enter third area. Shoot more bad guys. Repeat multiple times until reaching a big, overpowered boss.
MAXIMUM HAZARD PLOT: Go into area. Shoot bad guys. Die. Respawn. Return to area. Shoot bad guys again. Die. Respawn. Repeat first area without dying. Door opens. Enter second area. Shoot new bad guys. Die. Respawn in first area. Repeat both areas without dying. Oops, you died anyway. Respawn. Return to first area because there are no $#! checkpoints until the third area. Eventually you will make it to boss, only to die fifty times and throw your controller through your tv. This is not fun.
PINPOINT ACCURATE AI GUNFIRE: How do these goons manage to run and fire without missing? I don’t know, but I had hours to think about it during repetitious replays.
MATT THE BULLET-MAGNET = CONSTANT DEATH
POORLY DESIGNED COVER MECHANICS: Why is the X button always required to move from cover? If you accidentally push L joystick at the same time as X, you’ll simply rotate around cover. Great. A grenade is on the crate and Matt is stuck running circles around it. Boom. Hope you don’t mind replaying that section again for the fifteenth time.
ABNORMAL BUTTON CONFIGURATION
POOR IN-GAME HELP: Use an internet search for help with boss battles.
TOO FEW CHECKPOINTS
ONLY ONE GAME SAVE
WIMPY GUNS
INACCURATE MACHINE GUN FIRE
NO GRENADES OR GRENADE THROWBACK

RENT. PLAY ONCE. RETURN.
