Needless to say, the commercial appeal of this title was limited at best. Factor in the fact that the game was dropped by a publisher who shall remain unnamed before EA picked it up, and that it was shipping the same day as one of the most highly anticipated sequels of the year, and you start to see just how much of an uphill climb Brütal Legend would have before even arriving on store shelves. But even through all the adversity, the doubt, and the worry, Brütal Legend manages to be a fun title with a great story that can be enjoyed by everyone."
