Just got up to the emo section of Brutal Legend.
I like what they're doing with the story, it's starting to get more interesting and Ophelia, any other game would have sided with her rather than leave her behind like what happened. Massive props for that. Kinda glad Lars is dead, he was kind of...two dimensional, almost thought he was actually a bad guy in disguise his character was so bad.
Gameplay wise it's still fun but the RTS mechanics are clearly on the weak side. It just doesn't really work with such limited control of your units, it's really messy such as choosing one specific unit to do a task). If they did a sequel i'd rather them make it lane based like League of Legends where the RTS segments come a bit more from customizing what troops you send through rather than any form of micromanagement and unit movement. Also strategy from how you directly interact with troops (double teams and who you decide to aid in a given fight). Or perhaps if they just gave you the Halo Wars controls when you go into flying mode, yeah thinking about that I think that would work best while keeping the original RTS vision. So sad they're not making that sequel.
I'd also change the Guitar spells so that they work like the Ocarina from Zelda Ocarina of Time in that you pull up the Guitar and then do the sequence rather than selecting Guitar, choosing your song and then follow the Guitar Hero like prompt.
