Brütal Legend is an action-adventure that marries visceral action combat with open-world freedom. Set in a universe somewhere between Lord of the Rings and Spinal Tap, it’s a fresh take on the action/driving genre, which in this case is full of imitation cover bands, demons intent on enslaving humanity and Heavy metal tunes. Featuring the talents of comedian, actor and musician, Jack Black as super roadie Eddie Riggs, as well as cameos by some of the biggest names in metal music it's a wild ride in the belly of the beast that is not to be missed by gamers and Metalheads alike.
Included as a free bonus in the PC version of Brütal Legend are both the Hammer of Infinite Fate and Tears of the Hextadon multiplayer map packs.
Story The vivid and wildly creative world of Brütal Legend is brought to life through a spate of chrome, leather, rocker babes, epic music, fire-breathing/stud-wearing beasts, mountains made of guitar amps, and more. Follow Eddie as he embarks on a tour of epic destruction with an axe, a guitar, and his minions as he commands the power of rock in epic band battles. It’s lighter-flicking awesomeness that will melt your face clean off.
Combat Brütal Legend’s combat is a combination of classic action slasher and real time strategy mechanics. Melee and ranged combat come from your double-sided broadaxe and demon-slaying, pyrotechnic-creating guitar. Add that 1-2 punch to a guitar solo mechanic that can summon objects, buff your teammates, or cripple your opponents, and you have a deep, gratifying core gameplay combat loop that is fun for the hardcore and accessible for the casual. On top of that, players will journey from Roadie to Rock God by commanding legions of metalheads into Brütal Victory and sending troops charging into battle.
A Streaming Open World Brütal Legend gives you the freedom to walk, drive, or fly anywhere in a fully streaming open world whose art style is inspired by some of the most iconic and hilariously rad metal album covers ever created. Every vista in the beautiful universe of Brütal Legend looks like it was pulled from a Frank Frazetta painting.
Packed With Cameos and Voice Talent Brütal Legend is full of cameos from gods of metal like Lemmy Kilmister, Rob Halford, Lita Ford, and many, many others. It has a MASSIVE metal soundtrack from every era of metal music: 1970’s classic metal to 1980’s hair metal to the scarier cousins of 1990’s metal. And of course, Jack Black pays the ultimate homage to metal as Eddie the Roadie, continuing the theme from the work of his band, Tenacious D and his previous films like School of Rock and High Fidelity.
Multiplayer Mayhem 4v4 "skirmish" multiplayer marries action combat with a strategic unit-control mechanic. As the leader of one of the factions in the game, the player will direct his armies in a Battle of the Bands where the trophy is survival. Brütal Legend’s multiplayer is online-enabled, so you can conquer your friends online (broadband connection required for online play).
Music The music in Brütal Legend is truly massive. Made up of 108 of the most rocking tracks from 75 different bands representing every sub-genre of metal, it is something to experience in and of itself.

Brutal Legend transports you from cover to cover of classic metal/rock albums. Imagine Judas Priest's 'Screaming For Vengeance - Special 30th Anniversary Edition (CD/DVD)' album art coming to life or an entire area of gameplay inspired by Iron Maiden's 'Powerslave' album. I could go on and on about the feel and aesthetic that Brutal Legend brings to the table for gamers.
Gameplay: The first section of the game teaches you how to summon items,attacks, and other elements within the world to help you slice n' dice your foes. This is done through more or less a third-person hack and slash action game approach. The biggest issue that gamers had with Brutal legend is the fact that it turns into a third-person RTS (Real Time Strategy) game near the second act (Which I personally love) most players couldn't make the leap and thus the game did somewhat poorly on the consoles.
Multi-player: Same as before, pitting two players against each other in a stage battle. The stage acts as a HQ where you can spawn units and even play your rock anthem (a song from the soundtrack) to fight along with. It's cool when one player is listening to 'Black Sabbath' while the other is listening to 'Scorpions'. You'll both fight over resources or (Fans) to offer as tribute. Tribute summons units, rinse/repeat and lead your army into battle. With the ability to mount/join your units to add extra damage or effect to the enemies stage(HQ). It's typical RTS format with a refreshing theme and play style.
This format will also happen in the single player as you fight against certain groups or factions, with some boss fights peppered in for variety. So if you've read this far and it doesn't interest you...Brutal Legend might not work for you.
Port: I've played through the first hour of story and I was part of the multi-player beta offered during the pre-order period. It's a decent port, controls seem natural with your num keys acting as your guitar solo (summon) keys. Even if you don't feel the lighting with a keyboard, it has full controller support through Steam. So plug up a 360 controller and rock on.
Gripes n' Poops : A lack luster options menu. Some minor clipping issues so far (ex. While I was in the Motor Forge buying upgrades, camera basically fell through the floor on certain selections)
...if anything crazy happens I'll be sure to update my review. Double Fine has been rolling out constant update since the first day the game was made available for pre-order on steam.
Don't worry about future support, Tim Schafer (Creative Director) said,
"I mean, we have a wishlist from when we made this version. But since we are a small developer publishing it ourselves, we have to go with the best version we can make and then hope it's successful so we can add more. I would love to do alternate gameplay modes in multiplayer. I'd like to bring in Lionwhyte as a playable faction. There are some tweaks I'd like to do to give you more feedback about what your units are doing" - An exert from Destructoid. [...]
Overall: If you passed this up in 09' it's very much worth your time this time around. With fantastic voice acting, over 100 licensed tracks of metal/rock, and a part that Jack Black was born to play. But beware if you don't really care for metal music or RTS it won't be the game for you. These elements are deep within the roots of the game. With the game being built on music and the game feel being brought out though leading your army to "Tag Team" by Anvil as a (battle of the bands) if you will.
So take my bias filled review and give it a shot...if nothing else the next time Amazon or Steam have a sale give this title some love.
