Thomas Worthington: "It pains me to say it but Brutal Legend is hard to love. It's got only good intentions most of which starts off charming but things quickly take a turn for the worst. The gameplay becomes stale, the script becomes tired and the humour just seems to vanish only to make a handful of jokes here and there.
If you're heavy on your metal then Brutal Legend will serve as a hilarious commentary for your favourite genre of music. Others will find that the game just doesn't live up the expectations that preceded it."
