Brütal Legend (2009 Video Game)
User ReviewsReview this title
In the game, the main character is a roadie named Eddie Riggs that is considered a very talented man, but lives, for his sadness, in a time where the music stopped to be the ''real deal'' to become totally commercial. After an accident, Eddie wakes up in a fantasy heavy metal world where the music has supernatural powers. In this world, Eddie will count with the help of incredible people like Ozzy Osbourne and Lemmy Kilmister to go ahead with his missions, as well to fight against Doviculus, the emperor of the Tainted Coil, and his glam metal puppet, General Lionwhyte.
The playability and the challenges of 'Brutal Legend' are a mix of the ''open world'' style with the combats of a kind of a simple ''God of War.''
It is a game that is very fast to end if the 'side missions' are not done, as well with cool upgrades that are not mandatory to play the game.
In general, I would say that ' Brutal Legend' is a very fun ( although sometimes vague) light headed game, with an excellent soundtrack and very cool characters, specially for people who enjoys/ are fans of the good and old Heavy Metal!
Anyone know where I can order a Druid Plough hotrod?
And it's mostly a fun game, definitely worth a play for pretty much anyone. I didn't expect to be commanding armies into battle - which, while a cool idea on paper, became repetitive and not at all my cup of tea. I was much more at home tearing through the metal landscape in the hot rod and tearing through bodies with the axe. If not for the actual setting up of merch booths and controlling the head-banging forces, this would be an all-around winner.
