The only reason I rented this game was because of the soundtrack, and Jack Black rules. You play a dude who looks like Jack Black and basically complete missions in a dark world ruled by music and metal.
I gave this a 5 because of the amazing metal soundtrack and theme. Driving around in a sweet hotrod running over a bunch of animals was fun. Using the weapons and hacking up guys was also fun. But I did not like the strategy aspect. There aren't many combo moves for the weapons either.
This game does require a Command & Conquer or WOW type mentality. You can't run around and just slash your way through the game. You need to command your troops, give them orders, tell them where to go, etc. It requires a lot of memorizing button commands with little game-in tutorial. I rented from Gamefly obviously, and didn't have an instruction manual, so it took awhile to get the hang of commands but the game didn't do a very good job teaching either.
I dound myself getting stuck alot in missions, or taking too long to beat them because of missing dumb commands at times. I felt like my troops also did not listen to me all the time and died. Or maybe I just suck at this game.
Rent, do not buy. It will take you awhile to beat which is good. I truly respect the game for what it is since its unique but wasn't for me. I like more of the God of War type action adventure where you learn combos, upgrade stuff, etc. To end positively since i ripped this game a bit, it's one of VERY few games where I actually turn the music up versus down---nice work on that one.

I have been playing this game for over 6 hours staright now and have not been bored once. Jack Black and the other Voice actors make this game really enjoyable. Great graphics and tie in to other games like OverLord and other Tim games is incredible. THere is so much to explore and find. I think i might be halfway through game but i dont know yet. Havent tried multiplayer yet but everything in this game is design with two things in mind... Metal Music and simple easy FUN!
