Following the console release by only about three and a half years, this snappy PC release will probably struggle to get noticed. Before we played it on consoles, we were led to believe that this was an action game, even the demo said so. Unfortunately, this is actually a piss-poor strategy game. However, the heavy metal soundtrack is outstanding. Any metal head will love the cameos and the visual design of the game that pays homage to the fantasy-style album covers of yesteryear. I've rarely wanted (but ultimately failed) to enjoy a game as much as this one, but still find myself telling people to give it a go. Brutal Legend is out on the 26th February.
