Product Description

Platform: Xbox 360

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.

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.

Action Combat
Brütal Legend’s core gameplay is classic action slasher, but with a twist: ranged combat comes from your demon-slaying, electricity-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.

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 via Xbox LIVE (broadband connection required for online play).

The soundtrack of 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. The complete track list includes:

Let me start this review by saying I really wanted to like this game. Being a huge fan of previous Tim Schafer games and a long time metal aficionado I had high hopes. I even pre-ordered the game from Amazon which is rare for me. I give the preface since someone without the same expectations might enjoy it more.

The Good:

Story, Soundtrack, Voice Acting, Artwork, Humor, Metal References and Credits

All of the above are incredibly good. From the introduction through the credits the production values and choices the team made were excellent, within character, and true to intent. I liked the credits which is usually a pet peeve of mine. Rather than drag them out and force you to watch for 10+ minutes (and tempting you to quit out), they went along at a good clip. The soundtrack is well balanced with old and new, major (Ozzy, Scorpions, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest) and less well known but excellent (Ministry) artists, and styles from melodic to death growls (not a fan personally). The Legends and overall storyline are quite entertaining and well thought out.

The Bad:

Length, Flow, Gameplay, and Achievements

The game is very short. Unless you want to spend lots of time after the main story on either hunting through the environment for missed objects (without any map indication or "object finder") or want to play the pseudo-RTS online multi-player, you will be lucky to get more than 10 hours of gameplay out of this game. For a next gen price of $60, the entertainment/price ratio doesn't work out (and is one of the reasons for the 3 stars.) The flow of the game is somewhat disappointing as the major story points are somewhat disjoint and don't always flow smoothly together.

First off, this game pokes fun at current "metal" trends while attempting to tell a story worthy of the 70s metal bands that meshed mythology and modern culture. The game succeeds, in my opinion, in just about everything it sets out to do, and does it so well that it makes the endeavor of this mixed-genre game look natural and easy to accomplish.

You can't discuss this game without the tongue-in-cheek-yet-serious storyline. The quirky characters and the fact that this is all being done in over-the-top fashion makes it hard to take seriously, but that hint of humor is what lends the game's story its sense of urgency. If the game took itself seriously and didn't play these over-the-top characters for laughs, it would become tedious and overwrought. The fact that they copped to their own camp value is what keeps it from being pretentious.

The game itself is actually a realization of Action games, Exploration/Free Roam games, and Real-Time Strategy. Fans of one or two should have no problem with this game (though people who dislike RTS will find this game least agreeable as most major plot points revolve around RTS battles.) You drive around the landscape in your upgradeable car, doing open-world missions and races. If you upgrade your car for weapons, you can also shoot things instead of hopping out of the car to fight people (which, oddly enough, my axe kills things faster than lighting something on fire, shooting it with a chaingun, running it over, then backing up over it.) Some of the missions will see you fighting things solo, but this is rare. You will usually have minions helping you out (similar to Dynasty Warriors.)

Finally, the big thing is the RTS element.

To best describe this game, you have to imagine a time before the internet and when MTV and radio played no metal music at all. I would bring my allowance to a Camelot records shop every Friday and look at the covers of tapes in the metal section then buy the one looked the coolest. Ah metal in the eighties... takes me back to when coping a tape from a friend or a Metal Edge magazine was the only way to discover new bands.

This game is like taking a romp through my favorite metal covers come to life. A world of grossly distorted large engines and god like effigies all in the name of metal.

The game play itself is a miss mash of modes that mostly feels like Grand Theft Awesome. You drive around a large sandbox environment doing things like helping to ambush enemies, save friends in trouble, doing special jumps in you car, hacking up enemies with your axe etc... The main thing that separates this game is a real time strategy mode that is involved with all of the games major plot points. You become the on battlefield general for you army of headbangers. This means that you are hacking enemies and commanding troops at the same time. This is a little tough to get used to at first, but none of these parts kept me from progress for more than 2 to 3 tries on the hardest difficulty.

With a sound track of over 100 great songs and Ozzy, Lita Ford, Lemmy, and Rob Halford doing voice over, Brutal Legend is a unashamed tribute and celebration of all things metal.

If you like metal you'll love it.
