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 is pretty fun and I haven't really been into many RTS games, so saying I enjoyed pretty much everything about it I think says something.

The only thing that annoyed me was flying from place to place on the battlefield. It works really well, but sometimes I fly too high and loose track of things XP

Still, the RTS elements are pretty light and you still have a lot of opportunity to engage in battle with axe and "axe" in hand. The atmosphere and writing are great and the combat, though a bit wierd, works and is somewhat fresher than what some people think.

The way I think about is like this... if you like a good hack-n-slash action game, you'll more than likely be on the front lines, dropping facemelters to devestate the enemy infantry while your army charges in to clean the rest up. If you're an RTS fan, you'll be in the sky more than anything, using clever battle tactics to destroy the enemy without ever having to swing your blade... and if you like both, you'll be doing both XP

If you like neither, then why'd you buy it? o.o;

I don't think they should have made it an RTS. I was hoping it would be a nice hack and slash beat 'em up.

I think the game is really fun. The story and cutscenes can be hilarious at times (Like seeing giant cat creatures with KISS facepaint.)

The gameplay is average. Nothing too new for that, but also nothing bad with it. with normal attacks you get combos with your axe-axe, and guitar-axe. you can also team up with each type of teammate to do special attacks. And when flying in the air to control people from afar you can use waypoints to make it easier (They even make fun of them. seeing the glowing light and saying "Woah, how did you do that?" "I don't know...")


Anyway, we aren't playing the game for it being the most advanced action game out there. we're playing it for the setting, music, and all that jaz~err~rock.

It's a good game, but away from the the side quest, It can be short to those expert players. But its a cool game...

Dude awesome :XD: This says everything that I've heard about the game, only presented in a way that I find easier to understand.

My bro still wants to play it though. Too bad we don't have the necessary platform, huh?

Heh, even though it had RTS elements in it, Brutal Legend was still a fun game. And Tim Curry was just as awesome as always

But "Traverse Rough Terrain" only works on mountains or thick sand! We're in grasslands!

Hooray for roleplaying. It's too fun. Besides, Double Fine will always put out a great story, judging by their one example.

Brutal Legends looks like a warped game, considerng Jack Black and Ozzy Osborn are in it, you definitlely got the weirdness right on the dot, excellent job!

Heh, they're playing D&D XD

Actually, they seem to be playing a miniatures game, much like Warhammer.

D&D has a minis element. Granted, it hasn't used hexes for movement in a while, but that could be a house rule.

...you do know that D&D is a specific game, and not just the umbrella term for all roleplaying and tactical simulation games, right?

From the reviews I've seen, there's a big real-time strategy element--harvest resources, build buildings, train guys, send 'em off to fight. You apparently need to bust out into wicked solos in order to command your troops, which can be a problem when you're in the middle of a fight yourself.

Every thing about the game oozes creativity, metal, and general awesomeness. Indeed except for that one detail. I still think its a great game though.
