** Bobby Kotick claimed ''Brütal Legend'' was not a good game. It's a SpiritualSuccessor to an {{Activision}} game called ''VideoGame/{{Battlezone|1998}}''.

Executive Meddling does not go here

** SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped. Creator/TimSchafer says he's overjoyed about the bands in the soundtrack getting exposure and creating new Music/HeavyMetal fans. Which was exactly one of his goals.

* ItsShortSoItSucks: A common criticism from players who aren't interested in the multiplayer.

* ItsShortSoItSucks: A common criticism from players who aren't interested in the multiplayer. The single player campaign was intended to be about twice as long as it ended up being, but Double Fine had to leave out a lot of the things they wanted to include due to time and budget constraints.

** SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped. TimSchafer says he's overjoyed about the bands in the soundtrack getting exposure and creating new Music/HeavyMetal fans. Which was exactly one of his goals. * AudienceAlienatingPremise: A video game about Jack Black using ThePowerOfRock at liberal levels to do everything. Don't tell me the pessimistic side of you didn't snort at the outlandishness. Additionally, the RTS quality of the game apparently felt this way for EA (and formerly Vivendi), which led to them [[ScrewedByTheNetwork marketing it as an action game]]. Given that the game has suffered a lot of criticism not just for the stage battles, but for the mechanics of the stage battles, they may not have been entirely wrong.

Considering the game starts out with ''Children of the Grave'' in a low-volume riff until Riggs picks up the axe... ** Fighting the giant Metal Queen spider to Brocas Helm's Cry of the Banshee is considered one of the most memorable moments in the game. The song (and band) were impossible to find anywhere, until their popularity exploded from this game. Soon after, the Brocas Helm album [[HeavyMithril "Defender of the Crown"]] became available for digital download on iTunes. ** OzzyOsbourne's Mr. Crowley [[spoiler:when Ophelia jumps into the Sea of Black Tears]] ** Most, if not all, of the set pieces involve Crowning Musical Moments Of Awesome. ** Oh, and did we mention the FinalBoss theme, "Painkiller" by JudasPriest? ** The instrumental metal soundtrack by LucasArts / Double Fine mainstay Peter [=McConnell=] is very cool, even if [[JustHereForGodzilla you're probably not listening to it]].

* BestLevelEver: BrutalLegend fans and haters love the Metal Spider lair dearly. * BrokenBase: There are loyal fans who love all of Double Fine's work, fans who feel betrayed that it's a multiplayer focused Action/RTS and not a DynastyWarriors esque brawler, and fans of just the multiplayer. There are also fans who loved the single player so much that the multiplayer focus did not deter them.

*** It took years, but on February 26th, 2013, Brutal Legend was released on PC through Steam. * ColbertBump: ** A few of the bands featured in the game received some healthy boosts in popularity after the game's release. Wikipedia reports that sales of the included tracks went up 700%. ** And Brocas Helm, which was so obscure you couldn't purchase anywhere, now enjoys sales on digital services all around due to popularity of their song [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Cry of the Banshee.]]

** Fans blame EA for poor sales due to marketing ''BrutalLegend'' as a massive single player adventure instead of marketing the Stage Battles, regardless of the fact they were considered good in their focus tests. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hbpXAx_F-P0 This is the one and only multiplayer commercial from EA.]] Not very convincing. No matter how much TimSchafer tried to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SGrK70GgTXM pour his heart out]] on the Stage Battles months before release, it was drowned out by EA's hype, and especially the single player demo.

* ScrewedByTheNetwork: EA refuses to drop the money to make the patches created by DoubleFine available to the public, including the desperately requested [=PS3=] patch to stop crashing. Players who complain to EA have received copies of different games for free. BrutalLegend is not included in EA's Games on Demand on Xbox Live, or in any of its sales. They are working hard to pretend their relationship with DoubleFine never happened.

* FanDumb: Tell a fan you thought Brutal Legend was short or was an RTS in disguise, expect a tongue lashing. ** Don't tell a fan you skipped the multiplayer, or ask them to help you cheat your way to achievements. ** Taken to truly extreme levels with the multiplayer. As has been mentioned, the campaign mode is essentially a very long tutorial. Apparently, those who ''haven't'' played the multiplayer are "ungrateful greedy posers" for expecting the campaign mode of a game to be enjoyable as a standalone, when for any other game, it would be a requirement.

* HateDumb: There is a FanNickname for backlash against the Stage Battles. ** One player angry about the Stage Battles publicly messaged TimSchafer on Twitter and [[{{Misblamed}} called him a liar]] and accused him of falsely advertising the game as strictly action. Tim Schafer responded with his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SGrK70GgTXM multiplayer reveal two months before release]].
