I'm a big metal fan, sorta Tenacious D
fan and I loved "Day Of Tentacle"
and "Full Throttle"
by Tim Schaffer.
I honestly think that this game is unique because of the theme. I mean - heavy metal and fantasy? Dream come true! What other kind of games we have simmilar to that?
Maybe "Kiss Psycho Circus"
wich was a fine shooter back in a day. "Ed Hunter"
by Iron Maiden
? Give me a break, that was total crap. Or "Full Throttle"
, but there was no fantasy, maybe a hints of gasoline-fueled sci-fi. And that is a plus for a metal-fan and a minus for a non-metal fan. The latter I think shouldn't go nowhere near that game. Ok, they can have fun while playing it, but they won't feel "brutal"
by doing it
Game has a great soundtrack, that is an obvious fact. Graphics are fine, reviewers drool over it but I don't see nothing special about it. Well, exept amps growing off the ground, that is
. Jack Black and overall voiceover is great, but some of the protagonist talks while fighting can get boring and tedious.
Now dissapointments - story has the feeling of being written by some metalhead on light drugs. Not either inspiring or funny, no aspect of the story was able to suck me in. And annother reason why it couldn't suck me in was... the game lenght.
The greatest flaws of modern games, especially "Fable 2"
wich I liked very much to my own suprise is their lenght. I mean, come on - 6 hours on "Fable 2"
, "Fallout 3"
(add ten more on side-quests), and "Brutal Legend"
? That - for me - disqualifies game forever. I've only forgiven "Beyond Good & Evil"
because it's story actually was interesting. And that is why I'm happy that I've borrowed this game from my friend. And that is a reason why I'll give my Xbox360 to a store so they'll make it able to play pirate games and in NTSC & NTSC|J format. Because I'm sick of paying serious ammounts of cash for a game that will last for two days. And annother flaw, same as "Fable 2"
- "Brutal Legend"
is only a great fun while playing for the first time. The second is plain boring.
So, my opinion -10
for fun of playing5
for story (at least it had metal legends in it and a kiss-looking babe - tasty!
That gives 6+/7- on 10, but due to the fact I literally hate biting a tasty apple and finding out that the rest is rotten I'll give it a clear 6/10
On my list of games :"Dragon Age : Origins"
- I have great expectations towards that title."Assasin's Creed 2"
- also juiced up for this one, I liked the first one despite many negative opinions along with JJ's one."Splinter Cell : Conviction"
- kind of dissapointed by the way they decided to go with the gameplay, but hey - it looks stylish, fukken manly and it's a continuation of Sam's tragic history. How could I resist not to buy?"GTA IV Episodes" - "Ballad Of Gay Tony"
looks great. I liked GTAIV
although it's also waay behind the "GTA : Vice City"
. And "Ballad"
, from what I saw, it has some of the vice
and of course"Deus Ex 3"
- where are thou? I need some conspiracy/cyberpunk plot!
