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?

  • 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
2 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: 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?

  • Conclusion: Ultimately, Brutal Legend manages to paper over the cracks of its various shortfalls through sheer force of will, with the highlights proving engaging enough to keep you playing. For example, rolling across the heavy metal planes in The Deuce with Judas Priest blaring from your speakers is very nearly worth the price of admission alone, as is the wonderfully crafted script.

  • Excerpt: Anyone who has played the gems known as Psychonauts and Grim Fandango should know Tim Schafer’s name. He is respected by many for making some of their favorite games. Brutal Legend is  Schafer's latest endeavor, and with the hype and marketing, it looks like finally Tim Schafer and his company Double Fine Productions might have the commercial success that many think they deserve.

Brutal Legend

Auracore MediaWorks
19 October 2009
  • Summary: It's not Brutal. It's just enh.
  • Pros: A game by metal lovers for metal lovers; great voice acting and soundtrack; cool "album cover" character designs and world.
  • Cons: A mile wide and an inch deep gameplay; very weak real-time strategy sections; a poor range of vehicle weapons that don't work very well; bulk of the game doesn't live up to its early promise.
