Brütal Legend is an action-adventure game brought out in 2009 by Double Fine Productions.
The game is available via gamepass on the Xbox One but was originally released to the Xbox 360, the PS3, and the game is available on Steam for PC and Mac.
Double Fine Productions, Inc. is an American first-party video game developer of Xbox Game Studios based in San Francisco, California. Founded in July 2000 by Tim Schafer shortly after his departure from LucasArts, Double Fine’s first two games – Psychonauts and Brütal Legend – underperformed publishers’ expectations despite critical praise.
The vivid and wildly creative world of Brütal Legend is brought to life through a spate of chrome, leather, rocker babes, epic music, fire-breathing/stud-wearing beasts, mountains made of guitar amps, and more. Follow Eddie as he embarks on a tour of epic destruction with an axe, a guitar, and his minions as he commands the power of rock in epic band battles. It’s lighter-flicking awesomeness that will melt your face clean off.
When you come into a strange world as a roadie, because something on stage happens to take your life, what would you do?
Gather an army and help your newly made friends achieve victory in a battle against demons.
There are a lot of fun references in the dialogues that will bring a smile to your face.
Brütal Legend’s combat is a combination of classic action slasher and real-time strategy mechanics. Melee and ranged combat come from your double-sided broadaxe and demon-slaying, pyrotechnic-creating guitar. Add that 1-2 punch to a guitar solo mechanic that can summon objects, buff your teammates, or cripple your opponents, and you have a deep, gratifying core gameplay combat loop that is fun for the hardcore and accessible for the casual.
On top of that, players will journey from Roadie to Rock God by commanding legions of metalheads into Brütal Victory and sending troops charging into battle.
Brütal Legend gives you the freedom to walk, drive, or fly anywhere in a fully streaming open world whose art style is inspired by some of the most iconic and hilariously rad metal albums covers ever created. Every vista in the beautiful universe of Brütal Legend looks like it was pulled from a Frank Frazetta painting.
Brütal Legend is full of cameos from gods of metal like Lemmy Kilmister, Rob Halford, Lita Ford, and many, many others. It has a MASSIVE metal soundtrack from every era of metal music: 1970’s classic metal to 1980’s hair metal to the scarier cousins of 1990’s metal.
And of course, Jack Black pays the ultimate homage to metal as Eddie the Roadie, continuing the theme from the work of his band, Tenacious D, and his previous films like School of Rock and High Fidelity.
For accessibility settings, there is not a lot possible on the console version, for the Steam version there might be some more settings available.
It is possible to increase or decrease the camera speed, which could help a bit to fight dizziness.
You won’t need a colorblind option in this black metal world covered in white bones to rock on!
