Brutal Legend (X360) > Opinions (45)

Ended up rebuying it and play it every so often. It's gonna be a keep for my game collection. For my money, this will go down as my favorite game in the generation it was released. I just loved it man.

Think I'll buy this again one day when I get the chance. Traded it in recently, but I just know I'll be wanting to replay this game before the gen is over or before EA kills the online MP.

I remember Tim saying in a gamasutra interview that this had sold about 1.4 million (this was a while back) and that the game still wasn't profitable. It's a shame too, this is hands down my favorite game of this generation. Love the Action/RTS combo. Made for a great single player game and multiplayer. I remember some stage battles took over an hour with the more dedicated crowd! :) Gotta fire this bad boy up again sometime in the future.

Just got this for 10 bucks at a Blockbuster that was closing. Haven't started it yet because I'm playing Viking first which I got for 6 at the same Blockbuster.

There are only two solos for commands. Rally, and the Flag. The Flag is important in advanced play, and if you ever need Rally in multiplayer, you're probably in big trouble already.

The need to have to do a rhythm minigame to issue orders to troops (RTS) to do stuff killed it for me. And I wanted to really like it. I guess the stuff people didn't like in it, I liked, but what people want here didn't interest me at all.

@ -ku-
We'll see man. If your friends didn't buy this because of what they heard, total loss for them. The stage battles are a blast.

But, on the opposite end, you have to think about the more casual gamers/ metal fans. Everyone I know who likes Metal and has heard of this game is either stoked, and ended up buying/ loving it, or wants it. More casual gamers don't go into the game with a pretentious mindset, and therefore, don't necessarily act with prejudice in the same manner as Hard Core gamers.

Also, although I'm not all that confident in VGCharts accuracy (I'm sure the actual numbers are lower), if real sales trend similarily to the VG Chatz sales, this game most definitely has legs, no doubt caused somewhat by word of mouth.

Its should hit a million with both versions combined.

Which is pretty good I'd say.

The RTS elements aren't bad. Unpolished? Yes. Frustrating?Sometimes. Bad? No. Fun? For the most part, yes. I am sure that if a sequel is made, Schafer will improve the Stage Battles

Wow, having RTS elements automatically makes the game bad, huh?

I don't like RTS games and this is the first one I like. And all the reviews say they're awesome too. You and your friends just went "lol this game has RTS elements and therefore is bad RUN AWAY!"

This game is amazing and I wish there were more RTS games like it, where not only do you make an army but you fight along side it.

Nebulous Word of mouth isn't good for this game people expected a rockn roll RPG God of War Instead they got some cheesy RTS.

Everybody I knew with a 360/Ps3 was going to buy this game. You know how many did once they heard it had some Crappy RTS. ZERO.

My friend this game suffered because of Word of mouth

Bloody awesome game.

I'm not a huge RTS fan, but the stage battles in this game are epic, and damn addicting once you learn how to properly play.

To Aion, I say you're betting too low. The Christmas rush hasn't even started, and word of mouth will carry sales of this game, I'd imagine. My estimate is 1,000,000+ for both systems, and over 700,000 at least on 360.
