5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Schafer, 3 Nov 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Brutal Legend (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Tim Schafer is the man behind the story of Brütal Legend, relatively well known for his critically-acclaimed but commercially unsuccessful games such as Monkey Island, Grim Fandango and most recently Psychonauts. This game has an amazing story and great characterisation with Schafer's wonderful sense of humour. It is one of very few games whose stories make up for shortcomings in gameplay. For some the gameplay leaves something to be desired because it consists of simplified RTS and hack 'n' slash game styles melded together. The scavenging and side missions become repetitive but you don't have to complete them if you don't want to :P
Driving around the wonderfully made world of metal (you should watch the "legends" explaining the lore for an intersting and humourous background story) while listening to your tracks is a great experience. At 9 hours of gameplay it is a little short but it is still worth the money in my opinion and you can always play some multiplayer.

It is at least original and I consider it one of the greatest games in the last couple of years.

And the soundtrack is arguably the greatest game soundtrack of all time if you enjoy metal.
