Yes, BRUTAL LEGEND is a blast, not just because it delivers a fresh balance of fantasy adventure, humor, and great music (er, if you're into hard rock, that is), but it also successfully borrows elements from three different genres: action brawlers, real-time strategy games, and racing. Plus, this third-person game offers a host of optional side-missions that add to its replayability, while multiplayer modes kick it "up to 11" online, too. Packed with more than 100 killer rock tracks and voice talent from the who's who of heavy metal gods -- namely, Ozzy Osborne, Rob Halford, Lemmy Kilmister, and Lita Ford -- Brütal Legend is one of the more refreshingly unique games to debut in a long while.
Online interaction: This fantasy adventure is easy to connect to a central lobby from the main menu, then find people to play against in real-time strategy (RTS)-focused matches. You can chat, as well, therefore potentially hearing inappropriate words online.
