It inspires such excitement for its muse, heavy metal, that it also serves as a point of entry to an entire subculture. Just as important, it stands as proof that music in gaming is no longer the exclusive domain of “music games.”
In conclusion, this game rocked and was a great walk or drive down memory lane with all the great bands who have lent their music to this game. The voice acting is pure class and the gameplay actually works quite well in a bizarre way that makes this quite an original game.
such an awesome game good old jack black he definitely dont look like this nomore amazing enemy types that suit the games theme and is a funny game heavy metal and goth heads will love what this game has in store for them definitely a game to have in your collection
The most metal game ever made. Easiest 10 out of 10. Lemmy, Ozzy, Jack Black. An incredible soundtrack. Gameplay and story isn't amazing. But who cares. It's fun, easy, light, humourous and epic. No idea why I didn't find out about this game sooner. And it's on game pass.
You owe it to yourself to give this game a test drive at some point, just for the laughs if nothing else. It may be rough around the edges and have an RTS system that would confuse some people, but overall it’s a solid game that will entertain you time and time again.
It is with a sense of dismay then that I say that this: all things considered, it’s hard to call this a brilliant title. It has one of the most enjoyable 10 hour campaigns I’ve played, and if it were to be scored on that alone, it would have done a fair bit better. If you’re a fan of the genre of music, like I am, then the single player would be somewhere in the low –to mid-90s. The fact remains though that bolted onto this wonderful experience are sub par multiplayer and some terrible navigation issues.
There's nothing revolutionary about how it plays, but the likeable characters, rockin' soundtrack and jaw-dropping scenery make it worth experiencing. We certainly hope that Eddie Riggs (and Jack Black along with him) appear in the future sequel.
It's with a heavy heart that after almost 15 hours of play (including multiplayer and single-player sidequests), we have to report that it simply doesn't deliver the way we had wanted it to. For fans of metal, there are enough inside jokes and nods here to make you smile, and even casual observers of the culture will find enough to hold their attention. But ultimately, the game disappoints, with some "been there, done that" gameplay mixed with some potentially interesting concepts that either fall flat, or sometimes feel like like a chore.
Brutal Legend serves as sort of the "Jack of all trades; master of none" of video games. The game is an enjoyable and funny creation from Tim Schafer and his team at Double Fine, and it incorporates several elements from other games into a single package. The problem is that it doesn't seem like any of those elements drawn from other genres are incredibly well-refined or utilized to their fullest. It's got the combat of an action game without the fluidity, elements of an RTS without the needed ability for precision and management, and a sandbox-like open world that's only full of the same three or four mission types. With all that being said the game isn't necessarily "bad," but rather too ambitious for it's own good. As unrealized as many of the game's elements are, each one is tolerable to solid at what it does. The game is also quite hilarious in it's writing and contains top notch voice talent from Jack Black and Co. to really bring the world to life. There's an inherent lack of side-mission variety (like I said before) and the game's story missions are usually placed right next to the completion area of your last objective, so it doesn't do a great job of encouraging exploration. However, if you do take the time to get out there and see a bit more of the game's world, you'll find an adequate amount of enjoyment can be pulled out of the game in the long run.

Started out great. I liked the humor and the combat, and all of the imagery and world stuff was very cool, but it was absolutely ruined by the RTS sections.
You play as Eddie Riggs, the greatest roadie on the planet, who dies and goes to the underworld of rock. He soon finds that he is in the middle of a war with an evil tyrant and proceeds to gather allies to liberate the land. There are different factions through the game that represent different variations of Heavy Metal music (Glam Rock, Emo, etc.) which was an incredibly neat idea.
Jack Black does an amazing job as Eddie, while there are quite a few cameos from famous Heavy Metal icons. They may not be the best voice actors, but it's neat to hear them and see their likenesses.
I read somewhere that this started out life as a Real Time Strategy game, and that's where the real problem is. The game has several sections where you are required to defend and attack bases with your gathered forces. I don't really like RTS games, so these were a real chore to get through.
The side missions are also incredibly repetitive. After doing a few, you can definitely see that these were not given much thought.
This was very close to being an excellent game, which is a shame. Ultimately, you might find more frustration than you do fun.
Attention, ceci est un jeu démoulé par Double Fine Productions… et là normalement tout est dit. Car comme chacun le sait, cette petite boîte est spécialisée dans les jeux de merde (évidemment) mais elle est aussi et surtout spécialisée dans les jeux de merde débiles !
La débilité est en effet son crédo et depuis qu’elle existe, double Fine n’a jamais fait que des jeux débiles, plus ou moins débiles, parfois un peu moins débiles et d’autres fois carrément… super débiles ! on ne sait jamais jusqu’où ils vont aller mais ils vont toujours plus loin et continuent de creuser, sans cesse…
Ainsi, ce brutal machin de mes deux est un hommage aux métaleux mais ça ne leur rend pas hommage, malgré tout ce fan service dont on les affuble et dont ils sont victimes, en dépit ou grâce à tous ces clichés qui les illustrent dans ce jeu de merde ultra débile de Débiles Fine Productions.
L’humour fatigue rapidement et ne fera rire que les ados un peu mongolos dans leur tête ou ceux qui ont encore trop fumé de ****… le « gameplay » est super simple… et super débile ; la répétitivité (caractère de ce qui est répétitif) de ce machin brutal est extrêmement répétitive ; enfin, je ne voudrais pas me répéter mais c’est ultra débile… et incroyablement ennuyeux ! les graphismes sont clairement vilains, la technique est faiblarde et les ralentissements sont fréquents. Bref… c’est de la merde !
