Brutal Legend PS3 Review

Console Obsession
29 May 2010
  • Excerpt: If ever there was a demo of a game that wasn’t a true representation of the finished product, Brutal Legend was it. The demo did show off that the game had its action, though what it didn’t showcase was that it was set in an open world and also had RTS elements. Being a hopeful sales attraction, shouldn’t a demo be a better example of what the actual game is all about?

Brütal Legend

2 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Let’s face it; the odds were stacked against Brütal Legend from the start. Tim Schafer games? Niche market. Heavy metal? Niche market. Jack Black fans? Niche market. Needless to say, the commercial appeal of this title was limited at best. Factor in the fact that the game was dropped by a publisher who shall remain unnamed before EA picked it up, and that it was shipping the same day as one of the most highly anticipated sequels of the year, and you start to see just how...

  • Excerpt: Brutal Legend is the culmination of a lifelong obsession with metal, making entertaining games, and creating epic tales. Creator Tim Schafer has dreamed about this day for too long. Now that it’s arrived, we’re both praising the lords of rock and putting our controllers down early.

Expert Review

Game Informer
10 March 2010
  • Summary: Brütal Legend is hilariously scripted, brilliantly imaginative, visually and aurally arresting, and frequently unpolished throughout its many varied approaches to gameplay. The game borrows endlessly from every genre you can think of: RPG story and upgrade systems, large-scale RTS battles, open world exploration, and everything in between. Many of those systems have flaws; simplification of each gameplay mechanic is so severe that it hurts the experience.

  • Excerpt: Brutal Legend is the latest game from development studio Double Fine, the team headed by adventure game legend Tim Schafer and behind 2005's superb platforming adventure game Psychonauts. As such Brutal Legend had been expected to be the next big thing in the 'different to anything else' genre - an area that Schafer specialises in.

  • Excerpt: Welcome to the Age of Metal! From the creative insanity of Tim Schafer comes Brutal Legend , a heavy-metal adventure that came to rock your socks and blow your mind. Fans have been waiting too long for their taste of heavy-metal glory, but will Brutal Legend find the crossover success like Rock gods Metallica or will it have to resort to playing dingy nightclubs and bars?

GameTrailers
2 November 2009
  • Excerpt: Forging an unholy but awesome pact between comedy and heavy metal, Tim Schafer's action-adventure Brutal Legend stars Jack Black as ultimate roadie Eddie Riggs, who's transported to a mythical land where he stages a thrashing mad rebellion against the demonic Lord Doviculus. It's undoubtedly a cool concept, and the game reaches high with real-time strategy elements and an open world. Are the gods of metal pleased?
