Brutal Legend keeps unveiling more and more gameplay variety – first it was hacking, slashing, and guitar playing microgames. Then came an open world and driving. And now? Creator Tim Schafer pulls back the curtain on real-time strategy elements. But ironically, the more depth and variety that gets revealed, the easier it becomes to summarize the game in a single sentence. Brutal Legend is every heavy metal album cover ever created, mixed together and made into a third-person action adventure game.
