  • Pros: Crashing a flaming zeppelin into the enemy stage at the end of a long battle.
  • Cons: The aforementioned long battle.

  • Excerpt: Brutal Legend is the latest game from development studio Double Fine, the team headed by adventure game legend Tim Schafer and behind 2005's superb platforming adventure game Psychonauts. As such Brutal Legend had been expected to be the next big thing in the 'different to anything else' genre - an area that Schafer specialises in.

Test Brütal Legend

Generation NT
20 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Brütal Legend séduit incontestablement par son ambiance. Les développeurs ayant véritablement tout misé sur cet aspect, au moins peuvent-ils se vanter de leur réussite. Le Heavy Metal est ici mis à l'honneur et les nombreux clins d'oeil présents feront plaisir à tout fan du genre. L'humour est omniprésent, Eddie est terriblement attachant, on apprécie donc d'évoluer sur ce titre, et de partir à la recherches de toutes les références dont recèle le titre.
  • Pros: Ambiance, Nombreuses références et clins d'œil, Modélisation des personnages, Prise en main rapide
  • Cons: Durée de vie, Mélange STR et beat'em all, Redondance des missions, Manque d'évolution

Brutal Legend

True achievements
20 March 2010
  • 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. Overall, a fun time.

Jack Black as funny rocker roadie, but expect gory violence.

Common Sense Media
9 March 2010
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Brutal Legend is all about fantasy and does not look realistic at all. That being said it does show graphic violence including decapitation, dismemberment, and mass killings (such as driving over a group of baddies). Eddie, the roadie protagonist voiced by Jack Black, has a number of weapons and special powers at his disposal to fight demonic creatures -- some who look human-like.

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: Tim Schafer is an ex-Lucasarts game designer and current founder of the Double Fine Productions. He has given us the classics Full Throttle, Psychonauts and Grim Fandango, while he has also worked on other major titles such as the first two Monkey Island games and Day of the Tentacle. His latest inspiration was to combine the world of heavy metal with the world of medieval warfare in an action-adventure title that would have a little bit of everything in small doses.
  • Pros: Unconventional, Humorous, Filled with Metal
  • Cons: Too short, Monotonous side quests, Excessive genre-mixing
