its a great game! i saw someone saying that it is annoying with all the metal music when you are cruising around in the duece but if you had payed attention u can turn it off by hitting down on the dpad. so if u dont like metal dont worry because u dont have to listen to it constantly even though it makes the game have alot more excitement. but besides that i love this game it has near perfect voice acting, great graphics, awesome moves u can do with ur axe combos and cool super moves like melting peoples faces off and calling down a burning zeplin from the skies to obliterate your enemies. the rts mode is very good imo for not being a through and through rts. some things can be frustrating with it but it does not affect the awesomeness of the game. the storyline is very amazing and the fact that someone thought all of it up and played it the way they did is also very satisfying. also the monsters and enemies you fight throughout the story are very cool u can ride most of them and do cool moves with them. but all in all its a awesome game it was everything i thought it would be and more. a definite rent if not a buy.
Brutal Legend sets a new precedent in what is possible in a 3rd person adventure game. It skillfully combines auto combat with melee fights and full blown battles which require the player to command his army almost like and RTS.
Double Fine has a legacy of excellence, such as their impeccable Psychonauts (worth playing if you haven’t). They even put in an ingame gore and profanity censor so as to help transition Psychonauts fans.
The game play is a lot of fun, but what truly shines in this title is both the humorous storyline and the tremendous voice acting by high caliber names like Jack Black, Ozzy Osborne, and many other giants of metal. It is definitely worth playing if not buying.
The one downside I experienced is that the squad controls can feel a little too loose sometimes, but it is most definately worth playing.

Brutal Legend is actually a very interesting game. I thought it would be good but not this good. You play as a roadie named Eddie Riggs, voiceacting by Jack Black, and he is the best there is. He can fix anything, build anything, and tune any guitar. He knows everything about Heavy Metal. One night during a show, he accidently gets blood in the mouth of his belt and suddenly he is transported to a world of Heavy Metal. The world is in chaos and while there Eddie weilds an axe and also finds that his guitar can shock things and blow things up. It is up to Eddie to help the resistence of this world and bring peace to it.
Eddie can use his guitar to shock his enemies and blow them up. He can also slice them up with his axe and even use combo moves with his guitar. There some side missions that you can do so you may get points and you can spend these points to upgrade Eddie's weapons and his car. This game is also a strategy game because sometimes you will have stage battles where you summon more allies to help you fight the enemy's stage.
There are special appearances from famous rockstars in the game such as Rob Halford, Lita Ford, Lemmy Killmister, and Ozzy Osbourne. They will help you throughout the game. One more thing, you can pretty much use any character, even animals, while fighting to help you win.
Give this game a try. It is really entertaining and I am already considering buying it.
