Really looking forward to playing Brutal Legend. Mostly for the story and atmosphere. But I'm dreading the (according to almost every review and impressions I heard) the only so so game play.

Oh well, I'm sure I'll still enjoy it.

Brutal Legend would have made a much better movie or tv series, just like most of Tim Schafer's stuff. But it's still a lot of fun! The story and sound track put it into my top 10 games.

To be honest, the only gameplay portion I had any complaints about were the driving sections, but even then, after a couple tries, I got used to the controls and had a freaking BLAST charging across the landscape. I know a lot of people don't like RTS's, but Brutal Legend actually plays strongly in the Stage Battles, and you can dive in to provide support on a one-on-one basis rather than being forced to watch from afar as your dudes get smashed.
It's a stupidly awesome game. :)

The weird strategy and lack of jumping can be daunting but I thought the story, characters and level of badassery were pretty well worth it. You're comic is adorable.

The RTS moments are rather easy to deal with, the problem is they get harder and harder as the game goes on, and you find youself mashing buttons and creating troops just to save one merch booth.
I don't mind them, but I wish they kept Brutal Legend as a full blooded action game and maybe save this for multiplayer.

Okay.. I think I get these now. You were hoping that you would not get turn based strategy? Some people would've loved that I think but personally... ugh, it would've just bored me to tears.
Snazzy art by the way! Nice build up too

To be honest, i hate RTS games (i'm not really sure what it means, but i've got a pretty good idea) like Halo Wars, Dawn Of War etc.

But this game is totally different.
For me, it's nothing like an RTS game.
You get to kill them yourself, and it's not just a huge map with some random 3D buildings and people on it!
So for that reason, i disagree with this flash comic, however awesome it is :meow:

No! This game is totally awesomer than what is presented in the above art. Basically, you kick demon ass assisted and augmented by your troops. Quote Tim Schafer: "If you play this like an RTS, you're going to lose." And that makes sense, the strongest unit is you! I mean, you can summon the Hindenburg on the enemy base! Ride a gothic hot-air balloon and drop poison urns on your enemies! Ride a kick-ass demonic chariot!* You know, metal stuff.

And I guess you can hack enemy units to tiny bits, but it's easier to kill 'em by Double Teaming up with your units.

This is a Console Action RTS done right.

*Not as the same character, but still.

I usually HATE RTS and similar games, but I freaking love Brütal Legend. It doesn't really play like an RTS, anyway. Or do you know any RTS game where you constantly have to fly around the battlefield and personally bash the enemy troops' skulls in?

the gameplay ain't that bad when you get used to it, but I'm not a fan of RTS, so the stage battles are a real drag, especially later on in the game, but the story and general awesomeness makes up for it ^^

Also, awesome comic, it made me lol :D

Jeez, people certainly cant handle a mix of game play(reviews and commenters).

People are so picky these days, why not go back to playing some mindless shooters? Its about all people seem to care about anymore.

Anyway, nice comic man.

It really isn't that bad. Once you get used to the stage battles they actually become somewhat fun, they start off pretty confusing though. I beat without to much trouble. Loved the hell out of it.

odd combo really when you think about it... how many METAL heads do you see using their heads for anything beside headbanging, getting druged and such?

Brutal Legend demo and the game itself look like a different altogether ... the demo is like an action game where you bash demon heads... the game looks more like an RTS... :/ ... this is according to reviews.. i don't own any console...

I loved the gameplay. The gripe was the confusing point of stage battles. I actually found it really fun. Some people said it was to odd, but I guess you just have to keep in mind that the game is a hack'n slash at heart and if you try to hard to be an RTS, you'll lose. Once you've found the balance, its loads of fun.

They took that from certain metal bands album covers and names. Its referred to as a Metal Umlaut by producers not just a random. and it makes the logo look cool

Epic comic dude. Dungeons and Dragons jokes are a classic. I'm sad though, as several people (who inappropriately consider themselves "gamers") have said "What is D&D?" when I've mentioned it.
I feel old.

Paper gaming is really the best way to go, especially if you have a creative DM.

its somewhat of a letdown, but basically if you like a good ol' hack n' slash and a pretty badass soundtrack (plus there's plenty of humoristic relief) then you shouldn't be let down too much.

plus the level designs are basically what you've always wanted in an epicly metal wield-your-sword-for-justice game. from Celtic plains, to arctic fringes, to demonic castles made from the bones of a thousand baby lambs, its got it.

basically its a good game, just not an amazing game; also has good replay value being a hack n slash.

happy gaming my friend.
