Paired with the announcement of the Brutal Legend artbook by Udon coming in Nov/Dec. There's also a sale for the non-signed version for $10 but it's probably cheaper somewhere else.

It's kinda sad how low the price of this game went, I think I saw it for $3 at best buy last year, creative ideas like this should enjoy a longer shelf life like nintendo titles do(Well, not steel diver)... Sadly the damage is done, and if I was getting something schafer signed I'd probably just opt for the more successful psychonauts or poster.

Seems kind of dumb to just buy a signed one without actually meeting the person. A signature is just a signature.

I thought this game was amazing until the RTS parts happen, I just hated them. The rest of the game was just so awesome, if they put out a special edition without the RTS I'd love it ha. Would be cool to have a signed copy though hmm.

Yes the ideas behind the game were great, however the game wasn't much fun to play after about a third of the way through once they introduced the RTS-ish gameplay. If there were less of it (ideally none) then the game would hold a much dearer place in my heart

can he finally get EA to release the patch he says he submitted years ago. If you try to go for the 100% trophy and save anytime after 76%+ it corrupts your save file and is unloadable. ....

I remember buying this game for PS3 at launch as part of THE used-to-be-crazy-now-is-expected Falltime Toys R Us 3-for-2 deal with Uncharted 2 and some other game, I believe. Maybe Arkham Asylum. And I loved this game. I really did. It was great. Jack Black was awesome. The story was amusing. I mean, an action third party game with that story and that progression was great...

Then it became a RTS. A really bad RTS. Poorly designed, poorly thought out, poorly executed, poorly experienced. And I struggled to keep playing not because I couldn't win, I could, but because I just didn't want to play any more.

The next time I saw Brutal Legend (after I sold it for a huge loss that is), I saw it at Target on clearance. For like $10. And I thought, "Yep. Everyone else musta done the same thing." For such a vaunted developer Double Fine really screwed the pooch on that one. It was the one case where Bobby Kotick and I were suddenly on the same page.

And I can't forgive Tim for putting me in that position. For shame, Tim. For shame.

Sure it's a shame that the game went RTS style and didn't stick with being an action game we all thought it was going to be. With that said, I'm not that much a fan of the RTS genre, yet still enjoyed my time with the game. If you can look past that, it is a good game otherwise.

If nothing else, buy it for the soundtrack. That alone is worth the $20 (or any price really).

I concur w/ most on this one. I thought the writing was hilarious. Truly one of the funniest games I played this gen. But... teh gameplayz - I hate RTS games. I don't have enough patience. I wish there was more action (like the demo had!).

Also, I wished Jack Black could fucken jump. I remember thinking my controller was mapped poorly... only to realize there was no jump button.

Happy to hear that they're finally printing that art book. I remember there being a blurb about it in Game Informer back when the game first came out.

I'd take the Nov/Dec timeframe with a grain of salt. Udon is notorious for delays.

This exactly. I got this game for $8 at some point, and playing the sections leading up to the first big RTS battle, I was just loving the game. Great art style, great voiceovers by Jack Black and Jennifer Hale, great music. I thought, this game is so good, there's no way the RTS part can be as dumb as everyone says. And then... it is.

Add me to the RTS sucking group. This game was great....that is until I got to the RTS part. I tried the RTS once, hated it, and never went back to the game.

I'm in the minority on this one. The RTS segments became tedious during the campaign, but I played this game to death with my buddy in multiplayer. Both Teaming up together in 2v2's and taking it to each other.

Loved it.

I just spent an hour dragging a boat up a mountain for a trophy. What have I become...

 

Now just play a really piece of shit game and then complain about it until (and well after) you get the plat.

I don't know why some are surprised by the RTS elements because they showed it in the previews.

Great game though.

If Tim can also include a hand-written note apologizing for the RTS portion, then this is a very nice deal. Big fan of DoubleFine, but as many, many others have stated-the game was quite fun, then RTS (a genre I despise) kicked me in the testicles. It was like going from metal to a Justin Bieber-Nicki Minaj mashup. In summary, it was AIDS in a controller. I still plodded through it for the sake of beating the game, but the last boss battle in particular had me hating the game.

Well, you can have the game personalized by Tim on the product page of either version. I was able to fit in "Sorry for the RTS part lol and buy the next game." It's supposed to be an option to have him dedicate the game to someone, but I'm sure he has a sense of humor about it.

Liked the RTS parts, reminded me of an old gem, Sacrifice. Without this, it'd been another asinine hack and slash.

Wow, surprised by all the hate.

Can't say I was an rts fan prior to BL. Not even sure if I had played an rts prior to it. But I had fun with it. Even dug it enough to go for all the 'cheevos

But I will say that I had trouble with the rts stuff early on; that first battle in the palace. Failed it a couple of times. But learned to use the guiding light/beacon and it suddenly became easy. Just send off your troops and then fly in with your character and lay waste

All I can say is play it on easy, cuz you're missing out on a great overall experience

i beat it on brutal, rts wasn't really that stupid, but the demo.
what a sham that demo was. it made it seem like a rock n roll god of war pure action. the demo and the actual game were so very very different. just very misleading.
n yeah i got this with infamous and prototype b2g1 on release. fail

I think I was more disappointed by the fact the story builds up nicely and then, when you expect a third part to the story arc, the game suddenly ends. It was a rich, open world but felt empty and the story just implodes near the end. You expect a full-on third campaign with the dark faction (don't remember the name) and suddenly you're fighting the final boss with absolutely no build up. Wish this game had been fully finished, because parts of it are amazing.

Yep. This is why I got sick of the game and sold it.

Sacrifice!! I really liked that game! That's really awesome you mentioned it.

I have this game in my backlog. I forgot when I bought it, but it was really cheap.. Damn, all these negative comments are making me wonder if I should even bother lol

I agree with this. I would have enjoyed the game without the RTS aspect, but I feel that keeping it in made it a different and actually a better game. One of the last RTS sections is extremely challenging and it was very rewarding when I finally conquered it on my 7th or 8th try. Very awesome game all around IMO.
