Brutal Legend

Brutal Legend

My rating: 7+/10

Based on: one 100% complete SP campaign on Brütal difficulty + MP boosting with a partner and solo grinding

Check out my other reviews

TL;DR: An homage to heavy metal and a peculiar, if mediocre blend of a 3rd person hack-and-slash with a sandbox world and RTS-lite mechanics. Excelling in art direction and soundtrack, but bogged down by the gameplay design choices and console controls, it can make you hum, finger drum and fist pump in a mosh-pit-like excitement or bang your head in gloomy frustration. Fun enough to play on your own, but the MP is pretty much dead without friends. Brutal, perhaps, metal, definitely, but not enough to rock my world.

Brütal Legend, a game about Jack Black being Jack Black in a fantasy world full of metal. Metal as in, the musical genre, and the element as well (since there are many metal-based things on this world!). Now, for a more serious introduction, Brütal Legend is an action-adventure game (of the hack and slash variety) mixed in with some slight RTS elements. While at first it might seem like an odd combination, actually makes a pretty entertaining game.

The story follows Eddie Riggs, a roadie for a metal band who, after a terrible accident, gets transported to a fantasy world inspired by heavy metal, with fantastic creatures, and an evil overlord attempting to dominate it. Along the way, Eddie discovers not only that he gets awesome powers through music, but meets up with many interesting characters, some of them based on real-life heavy metal legends (and even voiced by them). Even though I wouldn’t call metal one of my favourite genres, this game certainly manages to create an amazing world from it (and it actually made me enjoy metal a lot more!). Anyway, the main goal is to put a stop to Lord Doviculus' plans, who wishes to enslave humanity and dominate the world.

Welcome to the Garden of Madness, Sudabros…

tldr; the game is great, but the port is not


The non-technical part of this port is still good, even after 14 years, the game has it’s charm. The heart and soul of the game is still here (except “Heavenly Star” is absent, but you can mod it back in), but the technical side of this port - OH THE TECHNICAL SIDE..

As you could see, most of the reviews here talk about the lack of controller support (KB+M is not an option;

! and why would you even want to play it on KB+M? ) - the game only supports XBOX360 controller, BUT DS4Windows works just fine for me.

Yes. But not yet.

the game works really well, but there’s some bugs that need fixing.

Here’s some stuff nobody else is saying:

  • A bunch of achievements are broken, specifically those that have progression tracking. The counting doesn’t work properly. Those who have the achievement “Dial M for Massacre” are using SAM… for shame guys.

  • There’s some particular segments in the game where you need to hit a target at the right time but the timing is extremely finicky if not completely broken. Luckily they are all optional, but some are tied to a certain achievement. It’s not impossible per se, but I sure avoided them like the plague.

No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle

The fact that they released an old game in this state is absolutely ridiculous and inexcusable.

  • Partial controller support for a game that doesn’t support kb+m despite the fact that it could work (you need workarounds in order to play with Dualshock 4 for gods sake).

  • Constant crashing during load screens. You know that lovely feeling of doing side stuff for hours only to have the game crash on you and removing all your progress because autosave isn’t a thing? Outstanding.

  • No options whatsoever. Wow look, you can toggle fullscreen on or off, so advanced.

Aaaaand that’s the next game all done! What an experience this game was. Let’s begin with the review:

Soooo…once again, I’m glad I gave these games a chance and I’m glad that I bought both of these instead of just one, definitely got a more fuller experience with them. So, where do I stand on this game?


While I don’t think this game is narratively better than the first game, The assassins in this game don’t feel like real people at times and more or less just feel like ‘oh, just another bad guy for Travis to fight to get to the top, I guess.’ It’s kind of jarring going from a game that had characters with some levels of depth to them and you could almost feel their struggles up until they died to a sequel where only a few of the assassins actually feel like they’re properly fleshed, and one of those few is just a character from the first game brought back from the dead that Travis himself doesn’t even get to face, with that character being ‘New Destroyman’, instead Shinobu fights him (or rather them since there’s two now and it’s kind of an annoying fight, ngl.) The story is….worse than the first game and while it has it’s good moments in it as well like Henry fighting an anime mecha girl, Shinobu making her moves on Travis which is uhhh…kind of funny and kind of weird at the same time considering the fans who probably DID ship them got slapped in the face and those who didn’t were probably just thinking ‘Yeah, that seems about right’, and Travis and Sylvia having more banter (which was some of my favorite moments in the first game and this one since we got to see the two interact more here and form a sort of…screwed up bond), overall, the story is just…okay, not as good as the first game’s but not god-awful either…Jasper is a really crappy character, though, ngl, he’s comic-book as heck and he really only just made Travis get out of retirement because of him killing Greg/Bishop…who barely mattered before in the games asides from him fetching your bike on NMH1 and running the shop in both games. It’s just kind of sad we didn’t get a better story considering how amazingly improved everything else was.

Captain Frogger

Captain Frogger

Its beautiful, truly beautiful. I do not believe there is anything else in the world that can compare to this, truly masterful. At first the violence seen in the game play trailers holds a sense of cruelty and barbarity, as if both the gorilla and the frogs are all mystics of violence, hate, bloodshed and nothing else. Ohohoooo! but my fellow primates, we were truly mistaken. You see, the frogs were leaping towards the ape because they were so happy to see him come home from the war but since the ape is still on edge due to all the fighting and his primal instincts, he immediately saw the oncoming horde as the many bloodthirsty baboons from the war-torn savanna and acted in self defense. But what makes this all so beautiful is that both the gorilla and the frogs forgave each other, these beautiful creatures have maintained there strong bond through thick and thin and understand each others struggles and make each other’s lives truly wonderful. Now to you I may seem as just a lowly “Jungle Monkey!!”, but please I beg of you to give this gam- NAY! work of art a chance, for their sake.

Armed and Dangerous®

Armed and Dangerous®

Armed and Dangerous is a very old and unpolished game. That being said, the gameplay being so simple to pick up and the comedy keeping itself fresh until the very end keeps this old gem in the positive thoughts of my mind to this day.


1. Simple controls - difficult level design. It’s really just a third-person click and shoot with some clever and funny weapon designs later. At first, I was worried that the game would be a cakewalk, but even on the medium difficulty I found myself constantly looking for cover, taverns to heal, and reloading my game a number of times.

Adequate Gameplay, Hilarious Comedy

Whenever I think of a flaw in this game to criticize, I immediately remember that there’s a gun which shoots sharks and forget what my criticism was. Watching enemies being devoured when a shark leaps out of the dirt below them never ceases to be hilarious. That said, I wish there were more comedy guns like that, and less of the standard aresenal of assault rifle, sniper rifle, and comedically-shaped-but-otherwise-normal-rocket-launchers.

The standard third-person shooting gameplay is probably the most disappointing aspect of Armed and Dangerous. Other than the shark gun, most of the weapons function like guns in any other game, even if they’re shaped like a tuba and fire exploding musical notes. This is kind of a shame, because the devs clearly knew how to make comedy, as the cutscenes and aforementioned sharkgun can attest to. That being said, the shooting is competent

Coof Attack

Coof Attack

Coof Attack is a satirical take on current world events where everyone has gone crazy trying to stock up on as much toilet paper as possible. You are hoarding the biggest stash in town and everyone wants a piece of that action. Your job is to defend your stash by fiercely lobbing your rolls at people as they rashly attempt to scale a building to reach you and your supply. If they reach the edge of the building, well… stomp them down! That’s YOUR TP, they can’t have it! They should have considered that before the world went mad! Set a roll on fire, douse it in ice magic or simply attach an explosive device to it and let it go. No one take can the TP away from me. No one! It’s MINE!!!!!!! :(

It is a clunky game clearly designed for coop and slow progression. But for what it’s worth I enjoed my 3h with this game.

Dick Wilde 2

Dick Wilde 2

Dick Wilde 2 is a proud successor of Dick Wilde the first.

An amazing looking game with great humor and a fair bits of crazy weapons to shoot many critters.

Sadly, it is with a heavy heart that I cannot recommend this game, as much like the first of the series, the difficulty is insanely high.

There are many worlds to explore…. but you won’t ever make it past the third level of World 1. Get ready to grind over and over level 1 and 2 until you get better, or give up.

Real player with 5.5 hrs in game

The first two levels are fun. After that it becomes something next to impossible to make it through a level on the Easy setting. Buy the best guns. Ok, this should be doable now, right? Wrong! How many times do I have to shoot the same junk in the water to get rid of it? How many rat people can you send at me at once, requiring 2-3 hits each? Bad design simply sends so much at you that you can’t progress. This could be truly a great title and I dare them to rework this into something really fun to play. Happy to revisit this review then.

Pros and cons are down below) Check out gameplay here:


1. The game is very funny! It’s so nice to destruct and burn everything around. I especially love when big explosions happen! Yes, there are big explosions!

2. Well, if you are afraid of spiders and don’t like them being near you, that’s your chance for sweet sweet revenge. I am so afraid of spiders, I genuinely panicked during first encounters, but then it got better and more fun! I kinda chilled a bit. I believe, it’s overestimating to call the game therapeutic aha, but I feel better in regards to my phobia.

A cathartic experience for us spider-haters out there




extreme or irrational fear of spiders.

According to Wikipedia, arachnophobia affects around 3.5 to 6.1 percent of the global population. Out of 7.9 billion humans, that percentage equals a lot, making it one of the most common phobias out there. So what does this game do? It take that phobia, amplify it ten times, but at the same time they gave you an arsenal of weaponry that is enough to supply a small army. Welcome… to Kill It With Fire.
