IGN: Brutal Legend Review

IGN US writes: "Developer Tim Schafer has been delivering funny games for the past two decades, but none of them have enjoyed the marketing push of Brutal Legend. Gaming's best kept secret has been given the limelight. Has Schafer and his studio Double Fine created something worthy of all this attention?" (Brutal Legend, PS3, Xbox 360) 9.0/10

Nice review.
Too many good games. I think the fall flood of awesome games is here.
People with no money please use the exit to the right..

*goes to the right*
*shakes fist* Next year.. i'll buy you... next year

this will probably eat away a lot of that uncharted games hype since they're coming out the same day but this looks way cooler
Gostosa  +   1803d ago
Both Uncharted 2 and Brutal Legend will share some hype, but Im pretty sure that Uncharted 2 will be in front hype-wise. I know im getting both games, and both looks effing awesome.
WildArmed  +   1803d ago
I doubt it will, since U2 has been hyped since E3..
with only 1 day till release, the hype wont go anywhere, its too late to shift the hype train =/

imo ofc... if BL is advertised more then U2 then yeha, Casual market is gonna make the jump
Sarcasm  +   1803d ago
"if BL is advertised more then U2 then yeha"

I've already seen the BL commercial 3 times in between the Simpsons and Family Guy. 0 Uncharted 2 commercials.

Always trying to spin it. If Brutal Legend was PS3 exclusive, we know you'll think it's crap.

ah, I usually watch my shows recorded so never notice the ads.
Man i'd love to see U2 ad on tv once in awhile.
I can start screaming OMGZ! ITS DRAKE DO YOU FUKING SEE DRAKE! THIS GUY WOULD PAWN YOUR ASS!

the humor in this game can at many times feel forced. As if the game is a comedy more so than a game.

Whereas UC2's comedy delivers in its subtlety. I kno no 1 is comparing but im just making a point. Uncharted 1/2 is way funnier than this game thats "supposed" to be funny.

(best comedy moments for those who played both games)

Uncharted 2:

Flyn: "Theres a guy above you...........there's a guy below you."

Brutal Legend:

Jack Black: "DECAPITATIONNNNNNNNNNNNN NNNN!!!"

lol both parts were hilarious but UC2 wins

I saw the Uncharted 2 commercial today. I think that's the first commercial for a PS3 game I've seen since LBP... O.o

@TheDeadMetalHead: Yep there is, but it sucks. It just doesn't show anything of the full game.

I've expected this one to be good (Tim Schafer never fails), but $hittin' crickey not this good. [cit.]

Day one for me, I think I'll cancel my preorder of Forza 3. Not because this one is better, i just don't like so much Forza games...

I know my movie theater where I live had posters all over for Uncharted and some special event that I never figured out. But I've seen a lot more TV slots for Brutal Legend. I don't watch baseball though, guess thats my problem? Now if they could just make it more entertaining then I could see a Uncharted commercial.

The actual game must be so much better than the demo because the demo was very underwhelming.

I've been waiting for a long time to play this awesome tribute to Metal. Never played any of Tim's games before and cannot wait to get my hands on it. Looks like crazy amounts of fun and you can actually understand what Ozzy is saying!

Oh, and fanboys (which should not even exist within the discussions about this game since it's NOT EXCLUSIVE) I think your opinions are dumb and I hate you a lot.
RememberThe357  +   1802d ago
Nice, I can't wait for this game.
Loved to demo, good to see the game is even better. It seems to me that the only reason people are ragging on this game is because it is coming out the same time as Uncharted 2. I for one am getting both.
Blacktric  +   1802d ago
Pre ordered Fallout 3: Game Of The Year Edition for 360, GTA: The Episodes From Liberty City for October. I was thinking about buying Brütal Legend but then learnt that Windows 7 is also coming out October 31 st in our country. So I just postphoned buying it. Can't buy it on November because of Modern Warfare 2 and Left 4 Dead 2. I won't have any money to buy any games till January probably. But between January and March there's also Assassin's Creed 2, Splinter Cell: Conviction and most importantly (for me) Aliens Versus Predator coming out. So I'm pretty much f...ed...

I was not expecting much from this game. Didn't think it would be too good. Looks like I may have been wrong.
Sarcasm  +   1803d ago
Same here.

I'll at least rent the game when there's nothing else to play. But in the next month it's Uncharted 2/Demon's Souls/Forza 3 time for me.
Snoogins  +   1803d ago
This is Tim Shafer we're talking about here and you cannot judge this man's games on surface value as he, to my recollection, has never put out a visually impressive game beyond the art style. Brutal Legend appears to be any metal head's wet dream and has a solid contribution from some of the greatest icons of the music biz.

Still, with that said, I have no urgency to buy it as I have way too much on my plate already, but anyone familiar with Shafer's previous work can expect a great story set on the foundation of a good game.
APOFISBORICUA  +   1803d ago
AS I SAID 2 DAYS AGO
... Ive been playing the game for the past few hours. Just beat the Spider Queen to give the bass strings to the KillMaster (Lenny). I have to say that the game is good. The graphics are good for a sandbox type of game (yes a sandbox...surprised?) and the music is awesome. For anyone who doesnt like Heavy Metal the game may be average. For all the metal lovers like me...they will ignore the problems in the game just to listen to the music and complete the story. The game really needed a map thanks to its sandbox nature you have to keep pausing it to see the full map and where you must go next. The controls are choppy and the graphics have lots of pop up in the background.

At least the game Heavy Metal theme is genious, fun and looks rigth on. I was specting a more linear adventure, not a sandbox type so if you didnt like the driving section of the demo dont expect much. Also I have the game on 360 and also has the demo on PS3. After all the graphics comparisons I saw I needed to compare it myself and I have to say that the game is identical on both consoles. More vibrant on the PS3 contrary to what I saw in some gaming sites, but they have more screen tearing than the 360 version. Texture wise is the same and the PS3 version is more alliased. The anti alliasing used on the 360 version for some reason makes it darker and have the vaseline effect that everyone dislikes on the PS3. That said I dont expect more than an 8.5 avg on Meta. We will wait and see the "proffesionals" reviews. A good entretaining until Uncharted 2 arrives. A good game that any fan of Metal shouldnt miss.

PEACE AND GAMING!!!

BTW I kept playing it. Im about 50% onto it and my opinion havent changed. Also with all the pop up in the background I dont even know how IGN gave it 9 in GFX. an 8 its more than good thanks to its unique and colorfull artstyle.

Looks like a good game. It's a shame that the campaign is short, though. Hopefully there will be some splitscreen action; or at least an offline multiplayer mode of some sort.

Back on topic, I'm surprised this game got a 9. When you compare it to other games that recieve 9's, Brutal Legend looks more like a rental than a game that is very memorable. I was going to give it a spin but Uncharted 2, Demons Souls, Ratchet & Clank ACIT, Modern Warfare 2, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, and Dragons Age : Origins are on my list above Brutal Legend. Maybe I'll put it on my X-Mas list or it will come down in price down the road.

if it was a PS3 exclusive it would have got 8. but right now every site is trying to hype every game so that 360 owners won't feel left out. it's an average game... we all can see it.
Marquis_de_Sade  +   1803d ago
Nix, that card doesn't work anymore, the Playstation 3 has the several of the highest rated exclusives of this generation, LittleBigPlanet, MGS4 and Uncharted 2 as well as several others that have been lavished with much praise. I don't see why these claims of bias against the PS3 still exist.

C'mon guys
You know they are going to jock a tim shaefer game, just like they did w/ his underwhelming psyconaughts. Personally, I think the guys is overrated, and I'm sick of the gaming community showering him w/ praise just because he made a few good games back in the day. The same can be said about Kojima to a lesser extent. U2 blows MGS4 out of the water in terms of cinematic quality.

Great score for a great Game.
colonel179  +   1803d ago
IMO
I played the demo, and I liked it. This game is a buy for me, but would have been way better if it came out other month. I just bought, NGS2, Demon's Souls, Pre-ordered Uncharted 2 and Ratchet and Clank ACIT, then next month is Assassin's Creed 2 and MW2, so maybe by christmas or early next year.

Based on the demo, I would rate it 8.5.. maybe the full game does deserve a 9
jeseth  +   1803d ago
Ur opinion, is my opinion too.
This game comes out at a bad time for me also. There are just too many other great games that I'm interested in more.
Jdoki  +   1803d ago
Interesting score/review.

I liked the demo, but didn't love it. The game seemed like a solid 7.5. I'd categorise it as 'simple fun'.

Perhaps Schafer's name guarantees a little extra love from the reviewers, or maybe the demo just doesn't really do the full game justice.

The_Zeitgeist  +   1803d ago
Meh...
Honestly I had very low expectations for this game. With some reluctance I downloaded the demo. But I have to say after playing through the demo I have come away with a completely different view of this game now. It was actually funny. Usually games that claim to be funny really aren't. Sure some games like GTA get a chuckle or two out of you. But Brutal Legend simply had me in stiches. I loved all the over the top gore and witty humor. This game is still a rental for me. But I am sure that I will enjoy every moment of it.
AllroundGamer  +   1803d ago
played it for about 5 hours now, and its a 7/10 at best, the humor is good, music rocks, atmosphere and the heavy metal world is cool, but the gameplay sux :(
Bathyj  +   1803d ago
Poor Tim Schafer. This game is destined to be overlooked by more high profile games, just like all his games seem to. How can a guy consistantly produce such high quality yet never get the recognition. Oh well.

Plus it doesnt help going up against one of the greatest games of all time.
ceedubya9  +   1803d ago
It may not be too bad
The game may do pretty well, expecially on the Xbox side. There really isn't anything to compete with this week on the 360, so this game may do okay there. On the PS3 side, things may be different.

Then again, it may do okay regardless of Uncharted. Prototype did okay on the PS3 despite Infamous, so there is still hope.

TheMART  +   1803d ago
LTC, you're crap and the bunch of PS3 g@y humping each others legs is even more pathetic.

Because the demo has just been a tutorial for basic gameplay stuff as your weapons. It says ZERO about the total game. Go watch the video interview. The gameplay in the demo just covered some hack & slash and the car driving, while the actual game is a sort of RTS mixed with RPG elements and some fighting. Its a big mix, that seems to work. een such a big and fine crafted open world yet... In the demo you fight till the gate and the monster, while the real Metal world is behind that gate. So all you that played the demo have seen NOTHING about the actual game.

You aren't a gamer. You're a PS3 droid that feels the need to push down other great games because Uncharted 2 is about to release. So anything multiplatform needs to be dissed by you and the other PS3 tard SDF army.

Pathetic bunch of losers! I'll buy both by the way, Uncharted 2 and Brutal Legend, both this week. Because I can, because I have the $$$$$. You only own a PS3 and probably can hardly pay for Uncharted 2. Thats the thing there, you are envy on stuff you can't buy.

And Nix you're wrong. Did Uncharted 2 got an 8 out of 10 from IGN and others because it has no surprises and is pretty straight forward in its story although being executed by Naughty Dog in a great way? No. You still believe in the tardness that the whole industry is mafia and MS all paid them to do so with PS3 exclusives?

Damn you're pathetic. You can't see sh!t as you've played nothing yet. Uncharted 2 obviously is a total better production, better executed and deserves the 9.7 out of 10 average it holds right now @ Metacritic, BUT Brutal Legend is more original, takes more risks in gameplay elements combining and trying to do new themes instead of a straight Indiana Jones/Tomb Raider rip-off.

You all don't appreciate games, you fack each other in the butt over PS3 stuff. Just pathetic.
nix  +   1803d ago
ha ha...
so much anger.. has your 360 RRODed again? oh wait.. you've got one of those pieces that's built to last!

and here's the deal - I DON'T LIKE BRUTAL LEGEND! kapish? even if it was a PS3 exclusive, i would have still not bought it. with that said, i think even DMC3 had the guitar as a weapon and had to kill these devils. so it's still not as ORIGINAL as you're trying to make it sound like.

TheMART  +   1803d ago
@ Nix

No, my 360 is still going strong you forget it was my PS3 that had a crappy bluray diode that died after just 3 weeks of use.

The fact that YOU don't like Brutal Legend is something totally different than you wrote above, period droid. I am not saying that the specific weapon is original, I am saying that the theme and the mix of different gameplay styles, RTS/RPG, hack&slash etc comes together nice as its said in the IGN review. Plus I know someone that could buy the retail version early and he confirms this, its one of the most rich and interesting open world games that open up AFTER you went through the gate which is the end of the demo. So yes, its very, very original as I am saying.

You droids just fail in every aspect of gaming and life in general, confirmed. And you keep facking each other in the ass with them tards comments

@ Pimp below

Ah no dude you're wrong. PS3 kids got the system from their parents and now must buy them games from their pocketmoney so they buy sh!t. And even the grown ups don't seem to buy the games, but maybe they buy a lot of BluRays I don't know.

One thing is for sure, all PS3 exclusives, with just one exception MGS4) sold around one to max two million for the great exclusives that is. Mostly helped with bundles for the PS3 (LBP, MGS4, KZ2 etc etc) and dropped to platinum 30 bucks prices here in Europe within 4 to 8 months after its release. LBP is 19 Euro overhere, KZ2, MGS4, Motorstorm 2, Resistance 2 platinum 30 bucks. Just to drive some extra sales.

its sad, just sad. You buy an expensive system (which isn't true anymore now with the Slim being 299) and yet no games...

"and yet no games"?
Don't you mean to say, no-one playing the games? Because I asure you they are not one and the same.

I agree the MS markets their games better and has a target demographic they know buy what the dish out, and that the PS3 has an older demographic some of which might not be as hardcore gamers (due to time mostly I guess) as the teens buying 360, which you know is true. I do not mean that the teen demoraphic the 360 has is a bad thing, quite the contrary.

I also think it's a shame all these people don't get to experience these awesome games but thats a job left for Sony and their marketing, which I think needs to be stepped up a notch.

to a certain extent i agree the droids here are bashing Brütal Legend because it is a multiplatform game i'm a PS3 owner and as awesome as Uncharted 2 is i'm picking up Brütal Legend for 3 reasons 1 Jack Black he's fvcking awesome and i'm a big fan of his 2 it's about Heavy Metal and 3 gore but really Mart the whole PS3 owners don't buy games they buy blu ray speech you bots have doesn't fit anymore more there's been alot of multiplatform games that sold better on PS3 like Batman , Street Fighter RE5 and others and when did selling over 2 million copies become bad if i recall most 360 exclusive don't even sell 3 million unless it's Halo or Gears and also RFOM & Motor Storm also sold over 3 million and also about bundle just drop it it's the most retarded excuse bots like you made, listen if someone buys a PS3 + game bundle it still counts as someone buying the game they paid money to buy the game . you just got OWNED and if your not down with that i got 2 words for ya , SUCK IT !!!

@theMART
I think you're being a little harsh here. Aside from your obvious dislike of the PS3 or Sony, you just think fans of the PS3 are bad in general. I think that's the stupidest assumption anyone can make as not all of us or even the majority are like some extremists here. I have nothing agaisnt fanboyism as each person has the right to like whatever they please. But when you try to insult people, that's when the line is crossed. If you have no intelligent posts about the game and article, refrain from posting because I'm sure most here are sick of your sh1t. The 360 has good games, online is good but paid, and the hardware is trash. There, you happy? The PS3 isn't perfect either since it has its shortcomings like the PSN which is still in its infant stage. You get the point.

Now about the game. I'm pumped to see more reviews. I played the demo and wasn't that impressed about the gameplay but the story and voice acting sounded cool. I'm willing to give this game a try after I'm done with CoD:MW2 and Uncharted 2. The online part is the one which intrigues me the most though. Seems like a sleeper hit.

Defectiv3_Detectiv3  +   1802d ago
Wow, you guys are right, Brutal Legend is teh awesome, and this inflated score has nothing to do w/ the fact that the gaming community is all over Tim Schaefer's nuts. This guy could have made that game from burger king and it would have gotten praised!

Fact of the matter is, if this weren't a Schaefer procduction, the hype would be nowhere as big.

Naughty Dog on the other hand, really has pushed the boundaries, U2 is setting a graphical benchmark that probably wont be eclipsed for some time to come, which is saying a lot for this gen. Not to mention it is far more robust in terms of gameplay modes and presents a cinematic style of game that is second to none.

No, I'm trading in my U2 and getting Brutal Legend this instant!
GeoramA  +   1803d ago
A 9 for graphics? LOL

Plus an open-world game that's "a little on the short side" still deserves a 9?

Oh IGN
Tomonobu Itagaki  +   1803d ago
Probably because graphism does not mean photorealism. Brutal Legend is a matter of level-design, chara-design, game design... And on this side, yes, the game easily kill most of the 2009 releases. That's just the reason why Morrowing is better than Oblivion, for example.
APOFISBORICUA  +   1803d ago
NO THEY DONT
have to be photorealistic to be good, but the graphics in this game has lots of pod up in the BG and screen tearing. Anyone who has played it knows that. BTW the ARTSYLE is really GOOD!!!!!!!!!!

Darkstorn  +   1803d ago
That's true. And any one who's played Morrowind knows it's vastly better than Oblivion, if only they changed the combat system.

Personally i plan on playing BL but not until i play Uncharted and then MW2.... like you marty i can afford what i want and like most PS3 owners thats true because we did buy the most expensive system on the market

maspi  +   1803d ago
there's something that I can't understand.

"Most of the story missions are real-time strategy battles that find you commanding troops on a battlefield made up to look like an epic rock concert. But the ability to join the fight and deal out a little justice of your own adds some action to the strategy. Outside of story missions the game can be a beat 'em up or a shooter or a racer."

Is this a real time strategy game in story missions/single player and a beat em up, shooter and racer for secondary missions?
strange mix of gameplay.however I don't like RTS game too much.Maybe I'll pass.

I did predict this game to be better than R&C, guess the reviewers just may think so too.

Is he talkin smack?!
Adropacrich2  +   1803d ago
I'm amazed at how many people are suprised to read this is a great game

Shows some gamers simply don't have a clue

i no right?
one look at this game and u can tell it will be up there. thats what happens when ur a real gamer, u spot quaility from a mile away.

i did the same with Demon's Souls, one trailer and i had to have it.

C'mon, Dude...
The Schafe man AND Jaybles, together, video game style?! You'd have to be stupid to miss out on this.

...or just hate JB. Some people do. Weird, I know. Some people just have a problem up there, in that part of the brain, the @SS KICKIN PART!

I hated brutal legend
The demo was super lame. Even if it got a 9. Still no buy from me.

1. you are a Emo or 2. you are a raper. This game is for Metal Fans so GTFO "Enemies of Metal, your death is our reward!"
Xlll  +   1802d ago
As a metal fan let me just tell you this game is average nothing more. The combat is lacking.
Tr10wn  +   1802d ago
Ermmmm did you actually play the game or just the demo?
Xlll  +   1802d ago
I played the Game not just the demo.

its IGN people

they constantly give crap games high scores
N2NOther  +   1803d ago
That's one of the most inaccurate statements I've seen on here in a while. Congrats.
mephixto  +   1802d ago
Using your logic I'm gonna give a 9.5 to Gago
DonCorneo  +   1803d ago
ign overrate a lot of POS these days
they also gave high score to crappy games like need for speed shift, gaylo ODLC and flopza 3.
ambientFLIER  +   1802d ago
Not to mention MGS4 and UC2. They are a joke!
Ninji  +   1803d ago
I liked the humor & voice acting
But the combat/gameplay was shallow & repetitive. I might buy it when I can get it at around $20 or rent it later but Uncharted 2 is what I'll be playing the most (as well as Demon's Souls).
YogiBear  +   1803d ago
I've played both games now and while Brutal Legend is very good UC2 beats it pound for pound. Brutal Legend also doesn't let you skip cutscenes and that is a little annoying.
