Brutal Legend

Game Over Online
19 October 2015
  • Excerpt: The best way of describing Brutal Legend , by Double Fine, is as a love letter to metal. Some form of metal music is playing at almost any given point in the game, including the menus - if you hate metal with all your heart, consider this fair warning.

Brutal Legend

True achievements

  • Conclusion: The characters are well voiced and animated - even Ozzy Osborne as the "Guardian of Metal" whom you get to buy your upgrades from. The heavy metal themed world and creature design are certainly inspired, and there is enough depth in the RTS battles to keep me engaged without being overwhelmed.

It had the Chrome but Not the Polish

GameCritics.com
17 January 2010
  • Excerpt: In his review of Brütal Legend , David Stone accuses Tim Schafer of creating a game that's more style than substance. Seeing the style is easy: the game's world is suffused with heavy metal imagery, populated by heavy metal musicians, and filled with the sound of heavy metal music.
  • Pros: Crashing a flaming zeppelin into the enemy stage at the end of a long battle.
  • Cons: The aforementioned long battle.

Sometimes Even An Umlaut Isn't Enough

  • Excerpt: It's an unfortunate reality that games are often accused of delivering "style over substance." The basic notion is that developers coat a mediocre game with some sort of stylistic hook that keeps the player interested in spite of themselves, and is nothing new.
  • Pros: The world is metal.
  • Cons: Almost everything else isn't.

Brutal Legend Review

PlayDevil
10 December 2009
  • Summary: Some people say that too many cooks spoil the broth. Some may also argue that too many gameplay styles may spoil the game! " Brütal Legend " nearly cocks it up by attempting to mash open world, driving, RTS and hack-n-slash elements into one package.
