Brutal Legend (PS3, Xbox 360)



Has Tim Schafer ever made a game that wasn't overrated? From The Secret of Monkey Island (which he merely co-wrote) to the deeply uneven Psychonauts, his games seem to garner a lot more praise than they actually deserve. Brutal Legend is no different. Despite openly acknowledging that the gameplay is quite weak, most games journalists awarded the game a score of 80 per cent or more — presumably because Tim Schafer's name was on it. We refuse to believe that they're all heavy metal/Jack Black fans, which is the only way anyone could love this game. It's not bad, but it ain't great either.
