"A Double Fine Game 'Brütal Legend is truly a gift to metal and game fans alike and my new, best 3D game ever.' -Play Magazine"

Acerca de este juego

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.

Este juego lo recomiendo altamente para dos amplios públicos: si buscas humor al estilo jack black o si eres un amante del metal o del rock pesado.
Brutal Legend es un juego de aventura y acción con elementos RTS, donde tendremos que pelear a un estilo hack n' slash y dar órdenes a nuestros aliados. En este sentido el juego es bastante simple, pero en esta simpleza radica una pelea rápida y divertida.
El humor siempre está presente en los personaje, entretiene bastante.
Lo mejor, LO MEJOR, es la música, ir por el mundo escuchando temazos clásicos es realmente increíble, los cuales puedes ir cambiando en la radio del Deuce, tu fiel vehículo. Cuando luchas ponen la canción ad hoc para el momento lo que se transforma en un disfrute constante.
Hay muchas referencias a los grandes del rock, Ozzy, Rob Halford, Lemmy Kilmister, Lita Ford. Y además hace burla al glam rock y al gothic en menor medida
El juego si bien no es muy larga la trama principal, tiene muchas misiones secundarias para entretenerse, desde hacer emboscadas, carreras, luchas con catapultas, etc.
Repito, si no te gusta el rock pesado, no te recomiendo mucho el juego, porque este es el enfásis(la misma sinopsis del juego te hace ver eso).

Lo bueno:
- Muy buena Música!!!
- LLeno de Humor.
- Grandes referencias musicales.
- Trama y jugabilidad entretenidas.

Lo malo:
- Los combates con tus aliados suelen ser algo torpe el sistema de dar órdenes a éstos.
- La movilidad del vehículo no me gustó para nada, es algo torpe y difícil de controlar.
- Si bien lo principal del juego entretiene bastante, no llega a un nivel excelso de destaque(por eso no le pongo un 9 o un 10)

8.8/10

Al infierno se va a sufrir... Salvo si eres nuestro protagonista, que entonces a lo que se viene es a repartir maporros, conducir un vehiculo diabolico, llevarse a la chica guapa y dominar a la peña a base de ROCK!!

Divertido, aunque infantil en ciertos aspecto, es un titulo que como minimo te arrancara alguna sonrrisa y algun gesto de mano muy rockero. Graficamente no es la panacea y su trama historica no es de novela pero...rodaran cabezas y guitarras diabolicas tronaran a la mayor gloria del Heavy y el Rock.

Juego de acción en tercera persona con ligeros toques de estrategia donde encarnaremos a Eddie, un "pipa" teletransportado al pasado por la magia de un extraño talismán con forma de hebilla de cinturón, Eddie descubrirá que el pasado es muy diferente de lo que cuentan los libros de historia, pues el Heavy Metal reina en los vastos paramos que pueblan este extenso mundo y donde el poder de la música crea y destruye a voluntad a base de brutales punteos de guitarra.

Apartado grafico nada discutible, el juego maravilla por lo detallado y original de sus amplios escenarios, donde todo está sumergido en la atmosfera del Heavy Metal.
Basta y extensa banda sonora con lo mejor del Rock/Heavy de todos los tiempos que harán las delicias de todo aficionado a la buena música, con respecto a la jugabilidad el juego presenta un estilo sencillo, fácil de dominar e intuitivo.

Como pegas se nos presenta una baja dificultad, misiones poco variadas y pequeños detalles de una jugabilidad demasiado simplificada, como el hecho de no poder saltar, amén de un precio algo elevado aunque bastante digno.
En conclusión, un gran juego con una historia más profunda de lo que a simple vista aparenta aderezado con un buen puñado de secretos por descubrir que fomentan la longevidad de este. Imprescindible para todo amante del genero y de la buena música.

Brutal Legend es un Hack and Slash en tercera persona que se desarrolla en un mundo a lo sandbox, con un mimo en la estética y en todo en general asombroso.

No os contaré mucho sobre la historia, porque no os quiero chafar las múltiples sorpresas que os llevaréis durante los primeros minutos.

Gráficamente no está mal del todo (el juego ya tiene sus años, pero sí que tengo que admitir que las texturas metalizadas son asombrosas. Brillan que da gusto). El diseño de los personajes y es que sin exagerar, de completamente TODO, es perfecto. Han sabido recrear un mundo Metal a la perfección de principio a fin y en cada detallito de este.

Todos, completamente todos los personajes (excepto los malos) van acordes con la temática metal. Otra cosa de agradecer también en este juego, es la mitologia alrededor del metal que se han inventado, que da bastante el pego (como por ejemplo, el hecho de que una araña gigante sea la diosa del metal, ya que con su tela se hacen las cuerdas de las guitarras o que Ozzy Osbourne, sea el guardián del metal.

Lo único a lo que puedo sacar pegas del apartado gráfico, es que algunas animaciones se notan demasiado ortopédicas y los pelos a veces se mueven bruscamente, pero por lo demás, todo correcto.

El apartado sonoro, como no podía ser de otra forma (nada más faltaba) es espectacular (siempre que disfrutes del metal, claro). Una pedazo de OST llena de canciones de distintas bandas que siempre quedan bien en cualquier situación del juego. Y seas fanático del metal o no, alguna te sonará, te lo aseguro. El apartado goza de un buen doblaje en español con la voz de Santiago Segura como protagonista, por cierto.

Jugablemente, es correcto. Tal vez algo más de jugo se le podían haber sacado a los combos y las fases de liderar tropas podían haber estado mejor. Pero bueno, los distintos poderes que tenemos al tocar nuestra guitarra (sí, tendremos "hechizos" por llamarlos de alguna forma, que harán que ocurran cosas a nuestro alrededor, a lo Ocarina of Time) le daran algo más de vidilla a estas fases además de permitirnos interactuar con el entorno cuando estemos fuera de una misión.

La duración tal vez sea el punto más flojo del juego, ya que si vas de cabeza, puedes pasártelo en un día prácticamente. Aunque como buen sandbox, el juego luego tiene montones de misiones secundarias (bastante repetitivas por cierto) y mejoras y objetos que desbloquear. Además de los logros, que todo eso junto puede alargar bastante la vida del juego.

Y nada más que decir, si eres un metalero cómpratelo de cabeza, sin pensar, porque este juego está hecho con tanto mimo que te gustará sí o sí. Y si no lo eres, pues joder, dale una oportunidad que es un juego único, macho.

Que decir, juegazo.

Un hack & slash con toques roleros en un mundo metalero hasta la medula.

Jugabilidad: muy basica, y un poco ortopedica. El juego no destaca en eso, si no en la ambientacion.

graficos: nada del otro mundo, pero cumplen con su objetivo.

Sonido: la estrella del juego, METAL! Una banda sonora brutal a cada momento.

Online: Basura, esta vacio y es como las batallas de single player,pero contra otro jugador, al principio tiene su gracia probar las facciones no jugables, pero al final no vuelves a tocarlo.

Resolucion final? ignorando el online y el hecho de que como tipo de juego es inferior, solo la ambientacion, banda sonora y el hecho de ser Jack Black lo valen. No podras pasartelo solo una vez a pesar de que cada vez que repites ya sabes que hacer. Pero que demonios, siempre te termina sacando una sonrisa.

ADVERTENCIA: Si juegas asegurate de que en las opciones marcas la opcion "VO" en opciones de sonido. Alto riesgo de cancer de timpano si juegas con el doblaje a español.

Este juego es la polla para cualquier amante de la cultura rock y sus derivados, principalmente, el Heavy Metal.

Lo que me ha gustado mucho, a parte de la ambientación y la banda sonora (lógicamente), es los clichés y bromas aplicados a esta cultura.

Tal vez, lo único malo que se podría resaltar es una optimización pobre y un manejo en el juego un poco más complicado para ratón+teclado, ya que el juego está pensado para jugar con mando.

En fin, le doy un 9/10, ya que se lo merece.

Empiezo con los pros del juego:
Es una representación brutal de lo que sería un mundo basado en el Heavy Metal con muchísimos detalles. El juego es una especie de sandbox con misiones de estrategia. Tienes muchos objetos que encontrar/comprar, una historia bastante decente, misiones secundarias, un sentido del humor genial, muchos personajes basados en eminencias del Metal reales, una playlist brutal en el coche con música de grupos como Def Leppard, Scorpions, Dragonforce, Ozzy Osbourne...

Contras:
Las misiones secundarias son bastante repetitivas y no aportan mucho la mayoría al juego.
Las batallas estratégicas que tendrás que hacer como misiones principales están basadas en controlar puntos para tener recursos con los que producir tropas para atacar la base enemiga y defender la tuya y a mi parecer el control de las tropas es un poco ortopédico costándote a veces un poco que hagan lo que tu quieres, aparte intenta ser innovador con este modo de juego y les ha quedado un poco raro.

Lo bueno es que si te llegase a gustar este tipo de batallas las tienes para competir on-line con escenarios propios y pudiendo elegir entre varios personajes cada uno de ellos con sus ventajas y desventajas.

En lo personal es un juego para metaleros 100% recomendable, aunque tal ves el juego por si solo no sea tan atractivo ya que hasta donde lo he jugado cae en la misma dinamica que otros juegos, sin embargo para mi el hecho de que el enfoque sea el Rock/Metal etc. me ha manteniedo en la jugada. El hehco de navegar entre los mundos escuchando a bandas como> Motorhead, Black Sabath, Manowar etc hace un juego muy placentero.
Si eres metalero juegalo, no conosco otro juego con enfoque metalero.

What do you do when you are on the game’s store page? You buy it, install it and play it. Once you initiate the third process, you won’t need convincing on keeping on doing it. The game is entertaining, detailed even where you don’t expect it, the npc’s are loveable, the open world big enough to lose yourself in it. What was a surprise that made me skeptic at first but turned out to be another enjoyable feature was the “casual” RTS, where from the protagonists third person that turns into a flying demon you command your various troops to take out towers and ultimately, the stage, by implementing your tactics. I wasn’t a fan of metal when I started playing this game, but because of it, I have all the metal songs from this game in my playlist.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=382331717

You are Eddie Riggs, the best roadie in the world, which means you are the one responsible for the stage glamour, but no one will know it. As things get out of control, you find your way into the past, into the age of metal, where people are used against their will by a tyrant which servers Doviculus, the demon responsible for the taint that corrupts all what metal stands for. Since Eddie is good at making things work and gives people purpose, a revolution is started. There will be many great characters that you’ll meet along the way, many of which are based on real life metal stars. There is always a romantic sub plot where you might find some clichés, but they are the best kind. Since the story takes place in an open world, you can expect a lot of variation in locations and types of allies and enemies.

There are a lot of sidequests and neither are the fetch types, more like ambushing, hunting, racing, keeping the bikers away while a headbanger charms a girl, shooting from a ramped car, placing markers for the guy with no aim to shoot rockets, that sort of stuff. Once I had to clear a cave so that a family of bats could go back in, which earned me kisses and an apology from a bat for ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ on my head. There are solos to find, serpents to free and legends to learn. It’s the kind of open world that never fills empty.
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=382331029
In the RTS missions, you’ll use your solos and your cunning, for doing things like melting your enemies faces and send the invisible forces to attack the stage while the shooters and the pyromans defend your stage. The Deuce(your car) is fun to drive, but the controls may prove to be difficult at first, which makes it even more fun. You can raise relics, which include Motorfoges, where you will upgrade your attack, the Deuce, change outfits, enhance your weapons and buy stones to place on a mountain.
If you’re a fan of the RTS system in the game, you can expect a good time in the multiplayer.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=382329151
I found many of my favorite gaming moments here. While people find some faults in this game, everyone finds the way to play this game and others don’t recognize those faults at all. The end was emotional satisfying, sneaking away, yet finding yourself surrounded by friends that simply ask you to never forget them at which point you’d likely say that you won’t, then driving into the sunset while your girlfriend watches smiling and dropping a tear. You can free roam afterwards to see what more this game has to offer. I’m not done with it and I don’t want to, not until I hear of a sequel at least. In the end, I find Brütal Legend to do everything right.

So I felt it is time for me to make a review of one of my personal favorite games of all time and too post why and the problems i have with the game. Possibly some hope in here that they make another too kick even more metal ♥♥♥.

In the vast lands of Brütal Legend made from the metal bones of Ormagöden the firey metal god. You are the man to change it all but take none of the credit you are the Roadie. Born in a wrong time this roadie knew he was meant (destined even) for something better, something Metal and Full of Gore. Venture through a land built of every punk teen's wet dream and true man's vision.

The Pros:
- It's got a Metal as ♥♥♥♥ of story worth playing experiencing fight demons, slay the puss, and of course ROCK
- A great wide landscape to venture through slaying all those who oppose you in your conquest
- You Weild an Axe and guitar with far more powers than you and I can comprehend with plenty of other powers found along your journey
- The land vast and all has plenty of quests to rock you some upgrades found in the motor forge
- A great lore (in my opinion) that can be greatly expanded on and just enjoy
- The God damn soundtrack is Bloody EPIC to put softly full of rocking tunes for you to rock out to on your journey
- JACK BLACK!!!!!! nuf said
- The strategy aspect is well done providing a differing touch on the game to make it a unique experience

The Cons:
- The multiplayer is kind of just a port of the game's strategy which is nice just not that boom your looking for counting no one plays it i know of
- the strategy aspect all though well done just feels like an unecessary element put in the game and that kind of sucks

Honestly those are the only cons i can think of. I'm sure you will think of plenty if its not your cup of tea but to me this is my mona lisa, MY masterpiece. No matter how you look at it though it is a good buy, plenty of hours ahead of banging your head and your mom yelling at you that its too violent. Hope you enjoy and please leave your hate down below I always love reading stupidity. :^)

Brutal Legend is an open world hack n' slash staring Jack Black as Eddie Riggs, set in a fantasy world of a heavy metal album cover come to life. I felt captivated by the story from start to finish, more than I enjoyed the game and its pretty rare for me to say such a thing. As a game, the combat was just there, other games do it better, but nothing does the unique atmosphere better than Brutal Legend.

The story is simple, you're a downtrodden roadie working for an ungrateful emo band that costs you your life. From there, you're transported to a fantastic land made of metal and stone. Where mammoths have chrome tusks and spiders made of steel. Its a fresh take on any fantasy world. Nighttime turns into a gorgeous meteorological phenomenon, either with electric blue moons or asteroid showers. The land is getting oppressed by a demon lord and you need to band together, gather troops and lead an uprising to defeat him!

The characters are straight out of the late 70s early 80s heavy metal scene. Everyone is wearing spikes and black. Men have big muscles, washboard abs, long flowing hair and the ladies are always petite with enough mascara to blot out the sun. All the characters have big eyes and I think that helps them convey emotion much better. Its a wonderfully acted game, from the voice acting to the animations.

There's a lot of humor, charm and goofiness that I enjoyed. I'm not one that likes comedy in games, but it hit the mark for me. Its not all comedy, the game takes itself serious when it has to be. The cameos also helped. Seeing Lemmy from Motorhead as my healer throughout the game. Having Ozzy Osbourne upgrade my car's weapons was a lot of fun. Tim Curry as the supreme villain. With all the famous voices incredible performances, there were plenty of great lesser known talent doing a fantastic job voice acting. All the characters no matter how big or small all have personality and charm, even if none of them have last names.

Halfway through the game, the emo starts to bleed into this world of metal and the new characters are all gothed up. Crazy haired "kids" with striped shirts, Victorian dressed women in white dresses carrying umbrellas. While they feel more Tim Burton than heavy metal, they're still beautiful as villains. What 80s metal head doesn't want to axe crimson clad, metal teethed nurses?

For a hack n' slash, its pretty simple, you've got an axe to melee, and another axe for magic. You can use the latter to perform guitar solos that you'll unlock different songs at shrines. These solos go in a mini game that's like a quick, horizontal Guitar Hero. Since you're leading an uprising, you'll be commanding troops and its easy enough. One button to have them follow you, another to stay, another to attack a highlighted object and one to attack what's in front of you. I think this adds a sort of uniqueness to the game. You'll rarely be fighting alone, you've always got a crew with you.

One of the first things you do is liberate headbanger grunts with giant necks. Then get ranged laser weapons for the razer girls from "General Lionwhyte's pleasure tower." The names alone play up what the game is going for. That era when fantasies were cool, imaginative, 80s, death, skulls and weren't dominated by elves or magic. In this world, the guitar is magic. Your solos can melt faces, heal your companions and summon vehicles.

There are double team maneuvers with allies that can keep things interesting. You're forced to ride giant speakers, getting carried by roadies to keep away flocks of seagulls. Ride on the back of a Lemmy's motorcycle to stun enemies. Headbang with your grunts. Another mission has you trying to circle a Kiss beast in a ring of fire. While I can't say it was fun, it still switched up the game play.

Eddie can't jump or even run, you'll need to hop into your classic, customizable hotrod named Deuce. There are mandatory driving segments here and there throughout the game to keep the game play diverse, but when you're outside of a mission, you don't have to use it, but its far better than walking. I just wish the driving was better. The steering in particular. Its not a bad in earlier parts in the game or when you're in the big open world, but later on, some of the mandatory segments are just painful to play. You're in a car, essentially off roading with trees everywhere, the slightest turn can send you off course into a tree. Some of the segments are pretty narrow and start to drag the game down.

Nothing drags the game down more than when Eddie Riggs sprouts wings and it becomes what most people call a real time strategy, but I call it a MOBA. Its a struggle, you as their champion sprout wings and command your army against an opponent commanding theirs. This is a lot different than just hacking n' slashing with troops at your side. You can fly and even still drop down to the ground to fight or perform guitar solos to buff your troops. You need to buy the troops with fans. Both champions have a stage or a gateway as their home base and you buy troops with fans. You get fans by performing a metal solo atop of a fan stream where a tower of a merchandise booth is then built over top of it. Its okay once you get the hang of it. I feel like this was a tacked on multiplayer facet of the game. I can't imagine some 80s metal head getting through these segments, but there's always an easy difficulty.

The more booths you have, the more funds get generated to buy troops. In this particular arena, there are six fan streams. Two by each stage, and one in each of two equal paths. So the arena is in a circle and that's fine too. Now these troops have specific talents, like a rock, paper, scissors sort of thing. Roadies take out buildings like merchandise booths and stages. Bouncers take out mounted enemies like those on horses and steel horses. Its easy to understand with the descriptions.

I'd say these MOBA / RTS are 5% of the game and they're just there for diversity. Plus you can't lead an uprising without having your army fight another can you? With that said, I grew to hate these painful battles. I'm no fan of MOBAs, but these just felt like a chore of a tug of war. I'd take a tower over there, but lose a tower. These battles took far too long. Death in the MOBAs merely respawns you. Outside of the battles, death sends you back to the previous checkpoint, which might have been a while ago.

A lot of love went into making this game. Well love and money. It feels like no expense spared getting the big names, making an incredible, immersive world with fantastic art design. There are little details that really make it an unforgettable experience. Even Jack Black performing a live action introduction of him finding the menu in a record jacket.

There are details in game like the wildlife. Porcupines, giant horned elk stampeding down a mountain and the ability to run them all down with your car. If not use your car's flame thrower to incinerate them. Hey this is an open world game that lets you be in control. You'll find plenty of side missions, but I didn't tackle any of them until after the main story was over and done with.

While its not a home run for its game play or in game fun, but its so good because of its art style, story and portrayal of these characters that the incredible soundtrack is almost an afterthought for me. Its there on missions with you, and in a cassette deck of the Deuce, but I was paying attention to the character's delivery that I found myself tuning out the heavy metal. I never thought I'd pay attention to Jack Black.

Fan of metal music? Rock music? BOTH? Well you're in luck! This game combines these genres, in their widest and most well-selected form, with a fascinating new world to explore.. a world filled with this music and its basic elements!
This game is worth playing for the music alone, but the storyline, setting, and gameplay are also fantastic. I'm not going to sit here and tell you why, it's an experience.. so go experience it for yourself!

Features characters based on and voiced by such musicians as Jack Black & Kyle Gass (Tenacious D), Lemmy Kilmister (Motörhead), Ozzy Osbourne (who doesn't know him?), and many more!

Brütal Legend is not only very funny and has an amazing soundtrack, it also has one of the best facial animations I've seen.
The voice acting is also top notch – No surprise there, considering that the voice actors include Jack Black and several Metal Legends.
Sadly, the gameplay is only mediocre. Even the strategy part, while unique 'cause of its third person controls, is very tedious.
But even if you are only slightly interested in Metal, you should try this game out. It is simply fun.
