Summary: Great soundtrack. The idea behind the game is fun. But it turns into the same repetitive thing over and over after a while. Too band they didn't do what GTA did and release the soundtrack. Some great, rare or hard to find tracks in here. Also voices by Ozzy, Lemmy, and Rob Halford, so that's cool.
Summary: I bought this on sale, it is a fun little game. I was never really into heavy metal, but still listened to it and this game has a sort of nostalgia that brings back memories when it plays some songs as your driving in your hot rod or talking to Ozzie! It is very cheesy at times, but in a fun way, typically Jack Black. It is not a game I can sit and play for 10 hours straight, but I use it to break up long game play sessions for something different.
Summary: First let me say, I really wanted to love this game. I really did. The demo had everything I love in gaming, funny dialog, excellent atmosphere, and great chracters and voice acting. And it was lots of fun. Now enter the full game and I was left with a serious love/hate view of this game.
Summary: I really wanted to like Brutal Legend. After all Tim Schafer is one of the industries best known storytellers. Sadly after finishing the game my conclusion is that Brutal Legend is more hype than substance and more filler than unforgettable experience. There is undoubtedly some fun to be had in this game. Brutal Legend is and odd mixture of open-world exploration coupled with Real Time Strategy elements known as "stage battles".
Summary: This game is artistically and stylistically beautiful. And because it comes on bluray disc the HD sequence in the beginning looks fantastic. The game is more than decent. What is annoying is from time to time the camera's do odd things that make it difficult to do some moves. Its apparent that from the very beginning that you will have to remember a bunch of special moves. They do a good job building this training into the narrative of the story.
Summary: Brutal Legend is everything it was hyped to be, which is an extreme rarity in the world of video games. It's fun, it's clever, it's well written, it's pretty, it sounds great. What it is not, however, is long. While every element of the game ranges from enjoyable to fantastic, reaching the end in fewer than six hours was more than a little anti-climactic, and detracted fairly seriously from my overall opinion of the title.
Excerpt: "Synonymous in the nineties with PC graphic adventures _Grim Fandango_ and the _Monkey Island_ series, designer Tim Schafer’s finest hour came in 2005 with cult-classic platformer _Psychonauts_, created by his own development house, Double Fine. Though the game’s commercial impact was only modest, it was well-received by critics and adored by fans, ensuring Schafer’s penchant for quirky quality was beginning to bear fruit. _Brütal Legend_, released ...
Pros: Impressive open world landscapes, extensive soundtrack, some nice ideas
Excerpt: I liked the opening to this game, the graphics were decent and the game world very creative. I didnt get more than 3 hours in though before i stopped playing. The missions just felt a little aimless and the boss battles were much like a strategy game (where you build units etc) but in third person - which just didnt work for me. Overall though if your looking for something a little different and like open world games you should consider this.
