Geek.com: PC adventure classics Full Throttle, Grim Fandango and the modern platformer Psychonauts have one thing in common: the touch of revered designer Tim Schafer. Jack Black, Ozzy Osbourne, and Tim Curry have one thing in common, too. They're part of the cast for Schafer's latest, Brutal Legend.
I'm setting myself up for a lot of hate mail, but I need to get this off my chest: I'm not a fan of Tim Schafer's games. I never played Full Throttle, the Grim Fandango demo didn't sell me and I honestly thought Psychonauts was overrated. Still, that doesn't mean that they're bad games, or that Brutal Legend isn't worthy of anticipation. Celeb-packed cast aside, this game is the biggest homage to rock and roll since Guitar Hero.
