Reverence for heavy metal and a strong story is what makes Brutal Legend great though. Even if you aren't into this brand of music, it's hard not to find the attitude on display here infectious. For all the rough edges and arguable shortcomings, Brutal Legend is a ton of fun to play with terrific art and a great deal of character. And in an industry plagued by sequels this time of year, it stands out as a game genuinely worth experiencing. Rock on!
