Brütal Legend is a game you will go nutshit (Tim Schafer's word) over. It's also a love letter to the glory of classic metal -- and a hate letter towards the lameness of hair metal. It's a digital re-creation of the album art on Dio's The Last in Line. It's a true "heavy metal adventure" (funnily enough, that description was used for a past Schafer game, Full Throttle). It's a story about, as Brütal Legend protagonist Eddie Riggs says, "creating beauty by simply rocking."
