Brutal Legend + Soundtrack
Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
Brütal Legend is an action-adventure that marries visceral action combat with open-world freedom. Set in a universe somewhere between Lord of the Rings and Spinal Tap, it’s a fresh take on the action/driving genre, which in this case is full of imitation cover bands, demons intent on enslaving humanity and Heavy metal tunes. Featuring the talents of comedian, actor and musician, Jack Black as super roadie Eddie Riggs, as well as cameos by some of the biggest names in metal music it's a wild ride in the belly of the beast that is not to be missed by gamers and Metalheads alike.
Included as a free bonus in the PC version of Brütal Legend are both the Hammer of Infinite Fate and Tears of the Hextadon multiplayer map packs.
The vivid and wildly creative world of Brütal Legend is brought to life through a spate of chrome, leather, rocker babes, epic music, fire-breathing/stud-wearing beasts, mountains made of guitar amps, and more. Follow Eddie as he embarks on a tour of epic destruction with an axe, a guitar, and his minions as he commands the power of rock in epic band battles. It’s lighter-flicking awesomeness that will melt your face clean off.
Brütal Legend’s combat is a combination of classic action slasher and real time strategy mechanics. Melee and ranged combat come from your double-sided broadaxe and demon-slaying, pyrotechnic-creating guitar. Add that 1-2 punch to a guitar solo mechanic that can summon objects, buff your teammates, or cripple your opponents, and you have a deep, gratifying core gameplay combat loop that is fun for the hardcore and accessible for the casual. On top of that, players will journey from Roadie to Rock God by commanding legions of metalheads into Brütal Victory and sending troops charging into battle.
A Streaming Open World
Brütal Legend gives you the freedom to walk, drive, or fly anywhere in a fully streaming open world whose art style is inspired by some of the most iconic and hilariously rad metal album covers ever created. Every vista in the beautiful universe of Brütal Legend looks like it was pulled from a Frank Frazetta painting.
Packed With Cameos and Voice Talent
Brütal Legend is full of cameos from gods of metal like Lemmy Kilmister, Rob Halford, Lita Ford, and many, many others. It has a MASSIVE metal soundtrack from every era of metal music: 1970’s classic metal to 1980’s hair metal to the scarier cousins of 1990’s metal. And of course, Jack Black pays the ultimate homage to metal as Eddie the Roadie, continuing the theme from the work of his band, Tenacious D and his previous films like School of Rock and High Fidelity.
4v4 "skirmish" multiplayer marries action combat with a strategic unit-control mechanic. As the leader of one of the factions in the game, the player will direct his armies in a Battle of the Bands where the trophy is survival. Brütal Legend’s multiplayer is online-enabled, so you can conquer your friends online (broadband connection required for online play).
The music in Brütal Legend is truly massive. Made up of 108 of the most rocking tracks from 75 different bands representing every sub-genre of metal, it is something to experience in and of itself.
Hack 'n Slash + Heavy Metal calls for hilarityQwertyfour | Oct. 4, 2013 | See all Qwertyfour's reviews »
The game features great heavy metal songs and getting this for the sound track alone is worth it. The game is open world and extremely fun. Nothing in this game feels dull and it's a overall very fun experience. It obviously doesn't take itself too seriously, as you meet Ozzy Osborne and other rock stars. A must play for heavy metal fans.

This game has one of the most amazing music score. It starts of with an open-world sandbox game and later on turns into a RTS, still the game does not lose any sense of direction or momentum. It's a must play title for Heavy Metal fans as well as Open World Sandbox and RTS fans. It's a great news that finally this game arrived for PC after more than 5 years. Get this version if you loved the music of the game.

Eddie Riggs, our main character, is teleported to Hevay Metal Land, where he must find the way back to home. The game is a mixture of Beat’em up and Sandbox. During your mission you’ll meet some famous NPCs as Ozzy Osbourne, Rob Halford and Lita Ford, it awesome that they have used their real voices, and above all Jack Black (Eddie Riggs’ voice).
In my opinion there isn’t any aspect of the game that is not enjoyable, gameplay is similar to others beat’m up (smash attack buttons and make combos), voices are brilliant (Jack Black is awesome as Eddie Riggs), and the soundtrack (that is included in this version) is simply amazing, you’ll hear songs from Mötorhead, Black Sabbath, Manowar, Def Leppard, Craddle of Filth, Rob Zombie, Mötley Crüe and many more.
Brütal Legend is an example of how funny and graphically beautiful a game can be without requiring a high-end computer. If you like Metal music, I totally recommend this game for you.
