The scope of this game is as broad as Eddie’s axe and bloody hilarious. If there was one thing to cast in the light it’s that the vastness of this tale may have been too great of a burden for the Gods to polish every facet of gameplay. Regardless, this is a Metal fantasmic-sexplosion! Major characters are cameos from the annuls of Metal history including Ozzy, Lemmy, Rob Halford and over 100 Heavy Metal tunes from Slayer to Mastodon. Brutal Legend is bad-ass and a little too big for it’s britches at times but this baby is like the Wayne’s World of gaming.
Brütal Legend has finally arrived. This is an experience conceived by Tim Schafer and Jack Black as a homage to Heavy Metal mythology and comedy. The Legend survives a storm of controversy over publishing rights and the casting of Metal God cameos. Jack Black stars as Eddie Riggs, the best roadie that ever lived. One day while Eddie is performing his duty to the stage, he is struck with an accident that knocks him into the land of Metal. Get ready to romp in an open-world tribute to classic Heavy Metal album covers. Praise Ormagöden, The Fire Beast, Cremator of the Sky, and Destroyer of the Ancient World!
