Brutal Legend, Xbox 360 Review - Alterernative Magazine Online

Brutal Legend (released October of last year) is the massively hyped action adventure from legendary developer Tim Schafer and his team at Double Fine. And why wouldn’t it be? It’s the studio’s first release since ‘Psychonauts’ in 2005 and boasts the vocal talents of such actors as Jack Black, Tim Curry and David Cross.

The game is essentially a celebration of all things heavy metal, including face melting guitar solos and numerous references that, although humorous, will likely only register with metal fans. There are over 100 metal songs in the game’s soundtrack and rock legends such as Lemmy, Ozzy Osbourne, Rob Halford and Lita Ford all make cameo appearances throughout (it has also been reported that the recently deceased Ronnie James Dio recorded the original dialogue for the Doviculus character). If you’re a metal fan or even just an appreciative rock fan you’ll get a kick out of the game for sure. (Brutal Legend, Xbox 360) 7/10
