So much awesomeness in this game, that my brain went into awesome overload. Had to put the controler down after awhile.
If your around 35-40 ish and grew up listening to the likes of Ozzy. This is worth your time.
Note: unlock a bunch of stuff before you start the first Tour of destruction, get all leveled up with unlockables in the northern part of the map, then you should be fine in real battles. Do it Not! and perrish in the wake cryptic characters that look like "Beatle Juice"3... Dont actually say beatle juice 3 time tho... LOL
This game was over-hyped in some minds, and to some people... there wasn't enough potential. I am gonna simplify this into one word... AWESOME! The controls were responsive and easy to learn. The concept of Heavy Metal combined with the action-adventure genre blew my mind. All of the gameplay elements came together and boiled down to one simple concept... STAGE BATTLES! You get to build a stage and create units to fight other factions (like an RTS-style game) This is one of my favorite genres and I have played these since early-childhood (birth-5 yr old) These genre will never die. The graphics are cutting-edge and beautiful. Sometimes, I feel like I am in the game due to the fact that any metal is awesome in my mind. The metal-montage of creatures and enviroments that would be on a CD cover is in here in all of it's current-gen glory. The replay value is moderate for me. I could play this a couple of times to see how the game plays out with gore on/language on, gore off/language on, and gore off/language off. This game has a freaking option IN GAME that lets you turn gore and harsh language on or off (so if there are certain individuals that come and go alot, you can do this fast and easily) It censors face melting, gibs, and even people CUT IN HALF, censors all swearing, and even covers all middle-finger scenes. This game is easily one of my favorite RTS-Adventure games of all time (yeah, it basically broke through RTS-style and created its own genre, RTS-Adventure! The (sometimes dark) humor will keep you from NOT bursting out laughing. This game is definitely a must-have for any fans of Metal/RTS-genre. It is basically a montage of some of the greatest metal by all-star bands COMBINED with awesome RTS-style gameplay.

The Metal has finally arrived. Jack Black makes what would have been a really cool game a must-have game for anyone who likes to rock. This game helps make rock a verb again.
The cartoon style is the only thing that feels kinda iffy to me, but it really makes character expressions come to life. The controls are very easy and the story is great. You get to fight with two kinds of axes: a guitar and an actual "axe."
I have been waiting for this game for a long long time and I am not remotely disappointed.
