How we rate the games?
Brutal Legend is a game dedicated to hell. I know it might not sound right, but you have to deal with it. I personally didn't like the game too much, especially the environments, but this is because of the idea, instead of the graphics or textures. They were alright, I don't see how to complain about that. Another thing I hated was the way it started, since I was actually waiting for the welcome screen, I see a guy looking at the camera and saying stuff about something great. It might be fun, but for me it was really boring.
The gameplay was somewhat weird, because you could play the game passing a lot of enemies, without even trying to kill them. Why characters have always to kill in such games, I will never understand. The game itself was somewhat funny though and had its own difficulty. I really enjoyed the idea of building the car and then riding it which is definitively very cool. Even when the girl was introduced it actually gave to the game some good impact. The environments were really stupid with so many skeletons and I didn't enjoy anything of it.
The graphics were alright, not great. I saw a problem about the texture resolution and I think the developers didn't put much effort into building better ones. I liked the way the player used the guitar as a weapon and send electrifying storms into the enemies heads, but I definitively liked the special effect of it. There are other interesting stuff the game has, but you will discover them as you play the game.
What I immediately though about the game since it started, is that they tried to bring something new to video games. They didn't consider any risk though, because they wouldn't start the game exactly like that, or add hell into their cards. There were a lot of similar enemies which I think this is one awkward move and sometimes pisses off the player. It actually depends on the game being played and the number of times it gets repeated and in this game I could number 100 same enemies for just 10 minutes of gameplay!
The sound was somewhat good. At times though it turned very bad, but I guess they intentionally do it. The guy you are playing makes sounds which are somewhat funny but irritating in a way. It is just my opinion, because there might be people who like these kind of sounds. Since the gamers actually play the guitar to throw a meteor into the enemies heads, this is quite amusing.
Overall the game is somewhat new. I liked their try, but if you ask me, wasn't enough at all. Even when the game starts the actor says: "It will not only change your life, but your soul", this is somewhat intentional and there are even bad words, but you can skip them. Overall I don't recommend this game, since there are other better games like Darksiders II which is somewhat the same gameplay.
