Should You Buy Brütal Legend or Uncharted 2?

Gamervision asks: "Next week, gamers will need to make the most important choice they've made this generation. No, it isn't choosing between the DS and the PSP or about picking the Xbox, PS3, or Wii as a primary console. It's a much bigger choice than those somewhat minuscule decisions. Gamers will need to decide which game they're going to be playing first: Brütal Legend or Uncharted 2.

Even if you're planning on picking them up at the same time, one obviously has to get preferential treatment. One has to go in the disk drive first, and that's an important choice to make. Each game has its own reasons for being the game to get next week, and we've assembled a list of pros and cons to make the choice easier. Or harder." (Brutal Legend, PS3, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Xbox 360)

Uncharted 2. I mean... c'mon.
hay  +   2155d ago
I would love to get both but with Demon's Souls being number 2 on priority list after Uncharted 2, Ratchet & Clank and Tekken 6 looming around the corner, and Assassin's Creed 2 in a month... Cuts must've been made in my list...
Forgive me Tim.

* Thinks about selling Aion to get Brütal Legend... *

Multiplayer: As mentioned earlier, the multiplayer might end up feeling tacked on.
jus thought i outa point out brutal legend was originally gonna b a multiplayer only game...

So if anything the sp is tacked on

N ya Uncharted def for the win if u have a ps3 sure wish we could get both this month
i already decided ta hold off on demon soul tho im itching to go pick it up sigh.

brütal legend demo was very funny, i really have enjoyed it. But yeah wtf Uncharted 2 is the game of the year, the most polished game ever, probably the best action adventure of all time. The grafics, gameplay, multiplayer, cinematic events are all top notch. The metacritic score is 97, all people want that game damn!!! "the most important choice they've made this generation" Are they kidding us?????

I think the most important choice for many gamers was "Infamous or Prototype"..

Is this a trick question???
Uncharted 2!!

But I will take a look at Brutal legend down the road after the Uncharted's,Ratchet's,Assassin s creeds,MF 2's of the World get played out...Probably right after these games and just before Splinter cell conviction and God of War 3....Thats a nice spot for it...

What the Heck...
Who wrote this article?

You think Brutal whatever is competition to DF2?

Everyone, do yourself a favor and go reserve DF2. Forget about that other game mentioned here. Trust me, if you get Brutal whatever, you will be sorry!
ultimolu  +   2155d ago
...That is such a dumb question. If you want both, buy both. If you can only afford one, buy one. I'm getting Uncharted 2 day one and Demon Souls as well. I am prepared to die a lot. :D
bnaked  +   2155d ago
but don't bash against brütal legend, its a great game! It's very entertaining and you should buy that game too!
jcgamer  +   2155d ago
Uncharted 2 or..................Brutal Legend?!

lol :)
LiquifiedArt  +   2155d ago
Demo of Brutal Legend was ok
...But come on. Ratchet, Uncharted, Demon's Souls, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 etc... are all before Brutal Legend. I wont even buy it.
The Wood  +   2155d ago
some can replace that 'or'
with an 'and' but if you really have to make a decision like this its nathan all the way
iamtehpwn  +   2155d ago
if you only own an Xbox360
I think the choice is pretty clear. LOL!
gaffyh  +   2155d ago
You should get both really (cos both will be great games), but if you can only get one, it's kind of a no-brainer to go for Uncharted 2, you know...unless you don't have a PS3, in that case Brutal Legend = Best game ever in the history of the world...ever. LMAO
Jaces  +   2155d ago
Both if you can. But if not, U2 then BL when you get the chacne...there's no way around it.
Darkstorn  +   2155d ago
Interestingly enough, I only own a PS3 and am getting Brutal Legend on release day instead of UC2. No doubt I'll get it at a later date, but I want give Uncharted 2 a test run before I buy it. Plus, I don't have high-speed internet so online is completely useless to me.
gta2800  +   2155d ago
Come on man, that's like asking, "should I bang that super hot girl(uncharted 2) or that fat ugly girl(brutal legend)?" That shouldn't even be a question, unless of course you have a fetish for fat ugly girls lol.
ThanatosDMC  +   2155d ago
U2 then Assassins and Tekken... and that's it for the year for me, i think.

@^ I think, Uncharted 2 uses dedicated server as there was never an instance of lag in the game compared to... Lost Planet 1 i played last night. But i could be wrong.

Brutal Legend's demo was alright so I am sure the game will be fun but WTF?

This is like comparing Potted Meat to Kobe Beef.
Poopface the 2nd  +   2155d ago
I will get uncharted 2 because I like the demo
I hope PSN works better for OCt. 13 as it doesnt work right now. I cant play the demo.
leyego  +   2155d ago
I don't no. i just don't no which to get.

i want to get both. but 120bucks plus tax to drop in one day is a lot of cash.

something times me get brutal legends now since i want to play it so bad. then buy UC2 on boxing day. 100 bucks says it will be sold out but still.

mb i should find a cheaper hobby? lol nah

@ Frank Drepin
What game is DF2???

As for the question, Uncharted 2 of course!!!!

Drakes Fortune 2

The answer is obvious...

And for the record, there is no such game as Drakes Fortune 2...

drake fortunes 2 doesnt exist.. U2 is called among thieves -_-
UnwanteDreamz  +   2155d ago
For the record I know what UC2 is and I know DF2 does not exist. The guy I was replying to asked what Drebin meant when he typed DF2. I saw in FrankDrebins comment history that he is calling the game Darkes Fortune 2. So I answered the guys question.

Now you 2 go correct that dude...............seriously go now! This is serious sh*t!
vickers500  +   2155d ago
"But yeah wtf Uncharted 2 is the game of the year, the most polished game ever, probably the best action adventure of all time."

-Have you played the full game yet? If you haven't, then you have no room to make such claims. This applies to every game.

"The metacritic score is 97, all people want that game damn!!!"

-So because the metacritic score is great, and a lot of people want the game, the game is automatically great? I guess GTA4 and HALO3 were some of the best games of all time then according to that logic.

I believe the game will do very well and will probably meet it's expectations, but don't go throwing out outrageous claims such as best action adventure game of all time if you haven't even played the game yet.
mal_tez92  +   2155d ago
The title should be: "Should you buy the sequel to the best game on PS3 which currently has an average rating of 97, or some gimmicky muck aound game that only a few people have heard of?"

That's the proper title.
monkpunk1  +   2155d ago
um duh, no brainer.....
hairy  +   2155d ago
After playing through Psychonaughts, I know Brutal Legend is going to be amazing, just wish it wasn't being released the same day as UC2 because alot of people are gonna miss out on it,
jhooty14  +   2155d ago
ummm on a tight budget and want all for you money i say uncharted 2 thats just my opinion though depends on what syle of games you like :0

"if you only own an Xbox360"
"I think the choice is pretty clear. LOL!"

Yes, buy a Playstation 3, then buy Uncharted 2!
calis  +   2155d ago
It's not even a question. Uncharted 2.
TheTwelve  +   2154d ago
For PS3 owners, this isn't even a choice. And if it is a choice, boy I would hate to have those tastes.

Beast_Master  +   2154d ago
Toys R Us is doing buy 2 get one free sale next week so I will be buying both and picking up NG2 Sigma for my freebie...HAHAHAHA.
Darkseider  +   2155d ago
Does this question actually have to be asked? If anyone has played the demos there really is no question here. UC2 is hands down the choice anyone with any semblance of common sense will choose.
chase167  +   2155d ago
whats Brütal Legend
xabmol  +   2155d ago
An awesome game.
About the Metal and beer, and junk 'n stuff.

Think of playing a game that spans the genres of metal and takes its level design from album art. There's also comedy, Jack Black style.
johover112  +   2155d ago
No....Not Really
Honestly, I forgot all about Brutal Legend. Some people are hyping it up but it's clearly not going anywhere, and most likely the reviews would be in the mid 7s. With Uncharted 2 (which received AWESOME reviews btw) Assassin's Creed 2, Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 etc. Brutal legend would be the last pick anyone should buy.

If you are just a crazy Jack Black fan, then maybe you should pick up a copy too.

dachiefsman  +   2155d ago
what about the 360 owners who have a PS3.
RadientFlux  +   2155d ago
I'm buying both, though if I had to choose it would be Brutal Legend.
Orochi Avlis  +   2155d ago
I'm buying Brutal Legend on the 13th.
I'll get Uncharted 2 eventually.

I'm buying BL over U2, because as a whole, it's something rarely seen nowadays. The script (from what I've seen so far) is very good, and the characters are fleshed out.
The type of humor is not for everybody. It's self-deprecation humor.

Schafer stood by his game and his principles and not let Activision turn into a Guitar Hero spinoff, or change the music style to country or rap.

So I guess, part of the reason I'm buying the game, is out of respect for Schafer. He wants to give gamers new experiences, and not rehash the same thing over and over again.

Not to say that U2 is bad, because it's not from what I hear. It's just if nobody buys this game (BL), the CEOs and the Marketers are going to look at sales figures and see that original games do not sell and just pump out sequels and spinoffs.
ButterToast  +   2155d ago
I'm buying brutal legend as well. Uncharted 2 is going to be an awesome game but its not a game I need to play right away.
DaTruth  +   2155d ago
I can't believe there's three of you in this world!
nycredude  +   2155d ago
While I could understand you guys wanting to get Brutal Legend first, I think you are making a mistake. Don't get me wrong I played the demo and really dug it (kind of like a full throttle feel to it) but this game will most likely not sell that well right a way becuase of when it is releasing. And with the holidays (black Friday) around the corner it is highly likely that you will get a cheap sale on this game shortly.

I will buy UC2 first and definitely pick up BL for $30 or so shortly afterwards, you watch and see. That being said when the 13th comes I'll probably cave and buy both at the same time. Like I said I really dug the feel of the demo, and I have weak will power when it comes to games. Besides If the games is anything like Full Throttle I will love it, but I don't see much replay value in this game. Does anyone know if it has multiplayer?
Orochi Avlis  +   2154d ago
Well, I live in Canada and we don't have black friday.
DaTruth  +   2154d ago
Oh, we have Black Friday in Canada; They just advertise it, and then when you get there you find out all the prices are the same and there really is no sale!

I went to buy a television last year for The Brick's highly advertised BF sale. When I got there I mentioned to the guy that the prices are the same; He practically ran away!

but then again PS3 gamers get a choice

ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.
I mean I enjoyed the brutal legend demo, completely took me by surprise, but seriously, this shouldn't even be a discussion.
xabmol  +   2155d ago

That's my answer at least. UC2 is goin in my PS3 first though... duh.
spongeboob  +   2155d ago
I will be buying both and enjoying both. I win!
va_bank  +   2155d ago
I'll get both
But Uncharted is first. I did like Brutal Legend demo a lot.
spektical  +   2155d ago
why would you raise the question?
if you like both and have $$ get both. IF you dont stick to your gut feeling about which one you'll enjoy more. :D
LinuxGuru  +   2155d ago
This can't be a serious question.
MetalGearRising  +   2155d ago
I'll guess i'll buy Brütal Legend and let the droids Beta Test Uncharted 2 for me before it makes its way to xbox360 due to very poor sales on ps3.
MetaIGearRising  +   2155d ago
haha I get to own both, while you sit at home crying because you've finished halo rrodst for the tenth time and you're out of games.;-D!!!
OmarJA  +   2155d ago
I'll guess i'll buy Uncharted 2 and let the bots Beta Test the whole Halo franchise for me before M$ sell it to Sony when they give up the video games business.

Fishy Fingers  +   2155d ago
Uncharted for me, which will probably carry over to Modern Warfare 2. I did enjoy the Brutal Legend demo though, so when I have a gaming lull, I'll no doubt pick up a copy.
Static-X  +   2155d ago
This is a joke, right?

I mean, I like Brutal Legend but come on..

hehe, your last sentence reminded me of it =D

How about whichever is less painful to do? Anyways, Uncharted 2, but hey, thanks for the choice =)
Lucreto  +   2155d ago
I will be getting both. Two excellent games out at the same time.
KillerPwned  +   2155d ago
Seriously......UNCHARTED 2!
Sangria  +   2155d ago
I'll get both. Uncharted is surely a blockbuster, but i also want to support small developers with original ideas, especially if it comes from Tim Schafer. They both deserve recognition.
The Wood  +   2155d ago
good point
naughty dog will be fine regardless so yeah
dominicm  +   2155d ago
I'll be getting both. I've been waiting for Brutal Legend since it was announced but Uncharted 2 looks like it's GOTY material.

I think you got it backwards, you guys beta test for us we get exclusive content,better graphics. Ha if you guys did get uncharted 2, right when you put the cd in the xbox it blows up your entire house.

Seriously...? I mean... seriously...? Oh, come on. One of the dumbest questions I've ever read in my whole life.

I'm not saying Brutal Legend doesn't look cool, it's a lot of fun and I really enjoyed the demo, but... U2 has 97 metascore...
