maybe they change the RTS controls, really hated that. never finished it.
make it play in isometric view..
This game fucking ruled through and through. It was like a Sacrifice-lite with great humour, art, and music. Mystifying that it's so underrated
You'll only be disappointed if you don't get what you're expecting. I'm guessing about 90% of the backlash against Brutal Legend was a result of misleading marketing.
I knew what I was buying, and I f*cking loved it. The RTS segments weren't perfectly suited to the control setup they built, but the rest of the game more than made up for it. The storytelling, soundtrack, voice-acting, world-building, driving and hack-and-slashing was all top-notch IMO.
I knew it turned into an RTS, I just didn't know the "open world" was going to be small and boring, and that the RTS portions were going to be boring and control awfully. Not to mention the hack and slashing wasn't even as good as something as bad as dynasty warriors.
Note that Double Fine games are also available, DRM-free on gog.com
While I suck at RTS, I enjoyed Brutal Legend and liked how they turned a Metal fanbase and appreciation into an army.
Will prob. get it from gog.com if it gets on there~
