Brutal Legend

Chronicle of Eddie Riggs, a roadie of a virtuous metal band, pulled back in time to learn his true purpose. Offered the wealth and knowledge of an ancient kingdom in exchange for assembling a legion of his own design. Score:


Our Verdict: Brutal Legend is a game that an awful lot of people are going to enjoy, despite its combat failings. It just prevents a great game from being one of the greatest.
