Mad, bad and dangerous to know. That pretty much sums up this bonkers adventure that mixes fantasy and rock 'n' roll in one bizarre but supremely enjoyable package. It throws in everything from fighting, to driving and RTS and although this sounds like it could be a recipe for disaster, thanks to its sheer gutsy approach, it all works better than you would expect and turns out to be a modern classic. You're thrown into a truly inspired universe which is a mix of Lord of the Rings
and Spinal Tap, and control Eddie as he embarks on an epic tour of destruction with his minions in tow and his guitar gripped firmly in hand. The world itself is fully open and you're free to explore at will, and when you come into contact with any of the unpleasant beasts which roam the land, it's time to rip them apart in brutal fashion with a huge range of incredible weapons, while your minions back you up with their own unique skills. The game features some top notch vocal talent and is written by Tim Schaefer of Psychonauts
fame, so you're guaranteed of a truly hilarious adventure. The story really is inventive and fantastically funny, with many laugh-out loud moments along the way and some really memorable characters to meet. The visuals too are lovely, with some brilliant character and environmental design, while the soundtrack will keep any classic metal fan delighted from start to finish. The gameplay too is just as enjoyable so overall, this really is well worth digging out if you're just after a good time.
