SFX 360 writes: "The power of rock compels me. It has always been the soundtrack to my life, with its heavy driving guitar riffs and frenzied drums resonating in my mind each time I need to psych up. It was there during my first fight, first kiss, and first run in with the law. Especially today, in a world driven by mass produced pop music and repetitive R&B hooks, the world needs to be reminded of the power of rock.
Guitar Hero and Rock Band were decent enough starting points for this new generation, who are now mildly aware of their rock roots. No, I am not speaking of the emolicious world of Paramore, My Chemical Romance, or any one of those cute little bands who were picked on in high school and still cry about it today. I am referring to the legendary bands whose tattered patches are sewn onto the leather jackets of every old man still unwilling to let their age determine their attitude. Zeppelin, Motorhead, AC/DC, Maiden. They are among the acts that, in their prime, lived every rock dream kids tuning their first guitars can only hope to achieve. Women, money, backstage parties with… more women. They did all that, thus creating a fantasy world where all you needed was an axe to become a rock god. We will all finally be able to explore that fantasy world in EA's upcoming third person action adventure game for the Xbox 360 and PS3, Brutal Legend..."
