"Brutal Legend" has plenty going for it in both charm and the imagination put into its creation. I now know what a Tim Schafer game is, and he's got my attention in the future. And casting Jack Black as the lead character was a stroke of genius. In the right doses (i.e. this game), he's very likable, and the guy's woven into the very fabric of the whole thing. He makes Eddie Riggs a memorable character. And you can tell what kind of love letter this is to heavy metal just from the game design; this world looks like you've just been grabbed into some of those wicked '80s album covers. It's great fantasy.

And it's mostly a fun game, definitely worth a play for pretty much anyone. I didn't expect to be commanding armies into battle - which, while a cool idea on paper, became repetitive and not at all my cup of tea. I was much more at home tearing through the metal landscape in the hot rod and tearing through bodies with the axe. If not for the actual setting up of merch booths and controlling the head-banging forces, this would be an all-around winner.

6/10
