Brutal Legend is brutally annoying during the RTS missions.
Ever play Brutal Legend? It's an action game... for a small period of time, then the RTS part shows itself and it turns into annoying mess of a game. The enemy units seem to be stronger then yours and on top of that, they can build their units faster then you and kill you quicker then you can kill them. In other words it's extremely brutal trying to get through them. I'm playing normal difficulty and it took 2 and a half hours to finish the emo/goth stage battle at the dry ice mines. As Yahtzee from The Escapist website's Zero Punctuation said "It's a stealth RTS. One that cloaks itself in other genres." That's the games biggest problem, it's using the action genre as a shield to cover the RTS. I'm not saying it's a bad game, just a game that will confuse and infuriate veterans of either genre. If you haven't bought it yet then consider this a warning of what your in for.
