Brutal Legend is a non-stop ass-kicking, side-splitting game that brings forward innovative gameplay and a land steeped in Metal lore. The Characters are lifelike, and the writing witty, but still funny to the layman. The humor starts to taper off at points, but overall, it's a hysterical experience. The world is the most metal in video game history, and the art direction is simply beautiful.
This game is the embodiment of all things metal, and it rocks harder and louder than any before it. It opens up a whole new subgenre and method of gameplay: a kind of music RPG/RTS. There is almost too much to talk about in this game, and if you really want to know about it, play it. For Metal fans, or even those who are just interested, this is a must-play.
