Brütal Legend, while not a wildly successful game when it launched for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 a few years back, is actually rather fun and charming. This title delivers a silly storyline complete with voice work by Jack Black and a whole slew of metal music cameos.
It’s the brainchild of Tim Schafer and Double Fine. Brütal Legend mixes open world driving and beat ’em up combat with a really strange real time strategy component. It doesn’t always work well, but it’s absolutely worth trying if any element tickles your fancy.
It also doesn’t hurt that it’s coming to the PC platform as a budget title. Brütal Legend will sell for $19.99 on Steam at full price, but you can pre-order it right now and only spend $14.99. Wait a little bit for a Steam sale, and I’m sure you’ll be able to score it for practically zilch.
