Brütal Legend: One-Word Review
O.C.D. Boy's 1-word review.
Today we "review" the hugely popular Brütal Legend, brainchild of equally legendary Tim Schafer of Day of the Tentacle, Grim Fandango, Monkey Island, and Psychonauts fame.
O.C.D. Boy's 1-Word Review of Brütal Legend:
Tim Schafer knows comedy. And he does it better through video games than most polished stand-up comedians. You will be bawling at his spot-on one-liners. The backdrop for his latest game conjures up all the bad metal album covers and fantasy heavy metal imagery from the 80s and bathes you in all their glory. With a worthy frontman leading the charge, Tenacious D's song-meister Jack Black himself, and a villain named Doviculus (voiced by the delicious Tim Curry), you know you've got a winner. Those expecting a straight forward hack & slash or beat-em up type game will be surprised to find some quality RTS moments that require real thinking and strategy. Like the shades of hair metal that inspired it, this game is an unabashed gender-bender -- no wait, genre-bender -- that also infuses segments of a racer and shooter. One thing Schafer is not is conventional. What his game is, in one-word, hilarious!
