A Metal Experience
Okay, one major thing for this game: if you don't like metal, do not get Brutal Legend. It's the only kind of music in the game. If you do like metal, then be prepared for a treat. This game is the pinnacle of gimmicked hack-and-slash open-world games, and my gosh is that a statement! Brutal Legend has everything: big threatening monsters, interesting lore, a beautiful world, Tim Schafer comedy, Jack Black comedy, and metal! The combat works, although you can die easily if you're not careful, but really that's not a bad thing. You get a fair amount of combos in the game, although it is possible to win by button mashing, but in a hack-and-slash that's not abnormal. You get a car, which is upgradable, but more importantly it spews sweet Metal tunes. The story is acceptable, with one or two good twists and turns (but one bad cliché that I'll leave for you to find), but nothing spectacular or new. The one place where the game dips is in the latter three quarters of the game where all of a sudden every story-based mission takes the form of an RTS segment. And don't get me wrong, it's not bad because it's broken or horribly out of place (okay, it's a little out of place), but it can just be pretty boring when you really get the hang of it. I really didn't feel very challenged until the last RTS, but that's because they throw a bunch of new random enemies at you. Thankfully the Metal playing all throughout the RTS segments keep me from getting too bored: while the enemy is dying, I'm normally head-banging with my troops. But no matter what, this game is a lot of fun, and it owes a lot of that fun to the actual soundtrack (a big save in a lot of the game), and if you like Metal you should most certainly get Brutal Legend.
Jack Black is hilarious in this awesome game
i hve owned this game for over 3 years. this game has everything humor, metal loving death creatures and death metal. Jack Black is awesome game along with Metal Legend Ozzie Osbourne. every popular metal and death matal song is here in this game and you would want to play this game.
Great game for metalheads
Beat this game 2 times on each difficulty and i never got bored of it. It is fun and humorous and the soundtrack rocks! Only thing i dont like about this game is that you cant jump, yet you can carry giant things? Whats up with that? It makes it a little bit harder when walking around but you still get where you wanna go. The size of the playfield is ginormous. Similar to GTA4. There is never a dull moment with this game, i recommend it to all my friends. GET THIS GAME IF YOUR A METALHEAD!!!!
one of the best games ever
Brutal Legend is a fantasy hevy metal game.With a huge assortment of songs. Great gameplay.And a very famous cast ,such as Ozzy Ozbourne ,I absolutely love this game. Its alway fun slicing a demon in half or summoning lightning with your guitar.the story is great and has a great twist you'll never see coming.all in all its a great game.
An amazing game in all aspects. even a friend of mine who didnt like metal and always thought jack black was stupid now worships both of them. definitely hits my top 5 favorite games of all time, and after buying it on release date in 2009, i still play it to this day. i wouldn't be able to explain my frustration when i learned that a sequel was planned and started but thrown out the window. for anyone who has played it there is a petition going to get a sequel made. just look up make brutal legend 2 on youtube for info on where to sign. its an incredible game with greatt kameos from lemmy, ozzy, and more. its soundtrack is untouchable by any game or movie, the game play is intense and rewarding, and the story is epic and deep. go pick it up if you haven't already.
A really good game
i really like the game im not into metal music but this game is for everyone you don't really have to like metal to like this game is really cool and funny in the beginning of the game is not hard the other levels are kind of hard but oh well every gamer needs a challenge right?
the best metal game on earth
This game is amazing I love heavy metal and now I can play a game with my favorite music which is awesome. I use to wish i had a sword or something and slay demons listening to heavy metal now i can. The voice acting in this game is amazing no one was better for the job than jack black. And luckily if one of your kids wanted to play it but you are aware of jack blacks swearing there is a setting in the options menu to take out all vulgar language. you can also disable gore so this game i would say is actually okay for any child that likes heavy metal.
Awesomeness Beyond Awesomeness
This game is beyond amazing! The music is a lot of rock and metal by a lot of amazing artists. The comedic genius of Jack Black in this game is hilarious throughout the entire story. The story itself is great and I loved playing through it. I definitely recommend this game to anybody!
This is the second best game i have ever played!
I have spent my whole life playing video games, and i have never played a better game than Modern warfare 3. This game nearly blew that game off my #1 favorite list. The down side of the game is you can't climb nor can you jump. I can not wait to get online and play this game. Try to play this game online and it will knock your socks off.
this game is really cool and it has a very good metal sound track.
