Love Brutal Legend. Those who didn't probably never liked, probably my favorite PC game, Sacrifice. Love the humor, style, rts and hack and slash. Got it for $5 and love it.

I also got it for $5, but it's still in the shrink wrap on my shelf and at the very bottom of my backlog.

I for one really enjoyed this game. Obviously many people didn't like it much but not every game is made for everyone. I applaud double fine for making a wide variety of games. It keeps the industry fresh. I liked brutal legend, I liked costume quest, and I have heard great things about stacking.

I applaud all those who make different games but I have to cheer that much harder for people that buck the trend and make GOOD games.

RTS = fail....rest of the game, pretty decent. Not worth 65 bucks for a bunch of extras though.

Ha, if you look on the store they're selling just the game for $54. Right.

I was really enjoying it on PS3, but the game locked up and my save was corrupt after 7 hours of play. Haven't gone back to it since, don't exactly have the heart to try again. Single autosave-only games are so bad

I'd be interested if it had the badass art book.

Personally, I adored the game, but it's definitely not for everyone.

Well said. While I mentioned that the game wasn't for me earlier I certainly respect those who did enjoy the game. Despite my dislike of the RTS segments I could still see that there was a whole lot of heart and soul in the game.

I liked BL a lot but gotta agree with the general consensus that the RTS segments subtracted from the game. A smoother complexity curve and a more traditional RTS camera view would've fixed my problems with the RTS portions.

As someone who never got into metal, Brütal Legend made me appreciate the genre much more. Could've done without the inclusion of Mötley Crüe though, yuck.

I will sheepishly admit that I didn't like Brutal Legend. The action parts were great and the presentation stellar and awesome, but those RTS parts where I had to control mobs of people sunk the game for me. Made me sad because I really wanted to love the game.


I absolutely loved this game - until the RTS as well.

it was so boring and mediocre - the hack and slash was great, the graphics fun, the music awesome, I loved it.

They could have had a franchise, instead they have coaster material.

What did everyone hate about the rts parts? I have never played this game but I do like rts games.

Yea the RTS rocked, everyone else just sucked at it ;D Sad this game is down to 5 bucsk now, really was a great game. I wish Tim would've made a second one but I heard it sold bad. 2nd one would give great closure with the ending from the first. And i would've love to have been able to go in the past or something THere was a great amount of backstory that wasn't really visited inside the game itself.

Same here, I picked up this game for $8, loved the atmosphere, loved the voice acting, loved exploring the world, loved the hack and slash combat. But the RTS parts are just confusing and frustrating. What a shame.

The fact that you can find this game for 2 bucks in some bargin bins alone makes this a non deal for me

LOL.

I liked how they used the phrase, "Double Fine is just making too many games per year now and we’re going to run out of room." No, Brutal Legend was just a terribly mediocre game that you were left with ton of stock when it sold like hot turds. ^_^


First, it's been *2* years since the game was released on October 13th, 2009. It is not unusual that they'd want to dump stuff from a game that is no-longer being sold.

General critics score was 7-8s, 830K units for 360, 730K for PS3. Comparatively, Psychonauts did 119,988.

Given the dev costs (and the fights over rights, etc.), the game was definitely not what they expected. The fact that they didn't cross 2M was likely the reason the sequel wasn't greenlit. Jack Black, Metal, and the RTS element (which I can't imagine being the death of purchases, maybe some reason for people being turned off) --- it seemed like a perfect storm. Using 09 as an example, all music based games died that year, so you can also attribute Brutal's demise to some of that.

Comparatively, Rock Band 3 (2010) did less than 1M in units sold Worldwide (PS3/Xbox 360). Green Day Rockband (June 2010) did less than 1M across all 3 consoles (PS3/Xbox/Wii). BEATLES Rock Band on PS3/Xbox 360 combined did barely over 2M (v. Rock Bank 2 which did 2.1M alone on 360).

The main character looks a lot like the rocker character from Guitar Hero and there's plenty of elements surrounding assumptions that it would be a music based game. 09's Guitar Hero entry had 870K for the PS3 and 940K for the 360. That was WITH the promotion of a free game.

I know we're saying apples-to-oranges with those comparisons, but whenever I previously brought up Brutal Legend to people, they assumed it was a music game and didn't want t bother with a Metal version.

The point is, perspective is fun and kills trolls.

Edit: On topic, $65 is still too rich for any bonuses, especially given the game is 2 years old. The goodies for sub $40 might be worthwhile.

007-QoS is also in bargain bins, and you seem happy enough to play that. BL was a brutally original IP that nobody was ready to face. Maybe if it was dozens of hours of non-playable CGI w/ lame cookie-cutter Japanime story like FF13 it would've sold better? :)

Paid $7 for it and it's in my backlog. The demo was mediocre, but I keep telling myself if Tim Schaeffer worked on it, it has to be great...right, right? r..., ... :(

What i ment was why spend 65 $ for a game you can get for 2 $ ? I know it comes with other things but is this package worth 65 ? Imo no. Oh and qos has only Been ok so far. Playing Resistance and gears 3 at the same time as qos is making the game less appealing to me lol.
