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.

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.
