Good concept. Fun moments. Lacklustre execution.

Mark Kilkelly, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: The idea is solid and it's clear there were a lot of ideas thrown in for a potentially great game. Sadly, they forgot to actually put the great game in there somewhere. While the game does have a lot of fun moments, the execution is really lacking considering the PS3's capabilities. In fact, this could very easily have fit into the PS2 and there wouldn't be much of a difference.

Ok but could have been great!

  • Summary: Brutal Legend was originally written and developed as a "Command & Conquer" type base defense game. The extra exploration and leveling at the beginning was added later. Strangely enough the beginning of the game where you complete quests, level, unlock new upgrades and tracks is the most fun part of the game! Later on after you have done some navigating the base defense part takes over and here endeth the fun.

Brutal Legen - Weird combination of Fun and Boredom...

  • Summary: I never found such a weir combination af Fun and Boredom in a videogame. The concept, the themes, the attitude, all perfect. Jack Black is super, the dialogues are brilliant, the music is amazing, a lot of cool stuff in this game. BUT, there's a but, and a pretty huge one: Gameplay. It is not what I expected, too many times it finishes in boredom and bother, too many times.

So much potential and yet it falls flat on it's face

  • Summary: I started this game loving it, it was fun, unique, had great voice overs and generally was a blast. It quickly started to get dull though, controlling troops is nowhere near as good as it sounds... it tedious, poorly executed and limited. I want to love this game, I'm a huge JB fan, love Ozzy and Lemmy's charecters... but it was just so boring, I didn't even complete it, thats how dull it was... any one want my copy?

A bit dull...

  • Summary: As with other negative reviews it was the Battles that ruined this game for me. To be honest though the rest of the game isn't great either. The battles as has been mentioned by others in detail are a chore to go through and really stopped me from wanting to return to the game as I got further through the story. Eventually I did just stop playing the game before finishing it.

A masterclass in how to utterly ruin a good game with a single awful idea

  • Summary: Brutal Legend is a great game. A fun, funny, engaging open world action adventure game with a fantastically designed game world, great characters and story, top notch soundtrack and voice acting, and has a lot of content to offer for your money. Driving around a hellish wasteland in a pimped out death mobile looking for demons to slaughter is definitely as much fun as it sounds. Why two stars then?
