|What do Full Throttle, Psychonauts, and Grim Fandango have in common? They were all designed by Tim Schafer, critics liked them, and you didn't play them.

Customer Reviews of Brutal Legend-Nla
Game was in good shape.
The game itself is actually a realization of Action games, Exploration or Free Roam games, and Real-Time Strategy. Fans of one or two should have no problem with this game (though some people who dislike RTS will find this game least agreeable as most major plot points revolve around RTS battles.) You drive around the landscape in your upgrade-able car, doing open-world missions and races.
I had been looking forward to this game since I read about it in game informer in about 2006. When I finally got the game about a long time after it's eventual release i was not disappointed. As someone who is more into role playing games, than running around with an RPG (haha get it) killing Germans or whatever you people do in war games, I love a game where I can really get into the story and the character I'm playing.
