About the Game

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.

I played this game for a few hrs, and I was not feeling. I was confused when i got to the part where you had to battle by recruiting units, and gain fans to upgrade your stage. So i mostly just roamed around completing side missions and gather the collectables until I stopped playing.

A few months went by and decided to give the game another shot. I started from scratch to go back and see if this time I understood the battle mechanics a bit better. 2nd time was the charm, I had a better understanding of the battle system and started to enjoy the game a lot more. After that i was way more into the game. It made me want to complete the game and do all the achievements (Because i am lame like that)

Very nice game. Good music, good story, very likeable characters. The side missions do get a bit boring because they are repetative and not really that challenging (Even on Brutal difficulty)

You'll finish the game pretty quickly if you don't bother looking for collectables or do the side missions. You aren't missing much if you just go right through the story, although the racing and animal hunting side missions have some funny dialogue.

Silly humor is something you'll most certainly find in Brutal Legend; Especially if you like Jack Black.

Enjoying the oldies Rock and Metal bands will likely increase your overall enjoyment of the game, or even, who knows, find yourself some new musical tastes you didn't know existed.

The game itself is a nice mix of hack 'n slash, attempting something original like typical Strategy Games Team-Management features to some degree, in certain battles - in which you can hover the battlefield ordering your troops to move to X, or even attack Y.

Awesome game if you enjoy an extensive world to explore and a crazy amount of silliness~
