IGN’s gone live with the first reviews for Brutal Legend.

Judgement: it’s bloody awesome. IGN US went with a 9.0, while IGN Australia went with a 9.3.

A blurb from the US review:

“Brutal Legend isn’t quite perfect and there is room for improvement (it’s a little short, side quests are repetitive…), but when the credits roll you’ll find yourself hoping for a sophomore release. Double Fine created a rich heavy metal universe and backstory full of great characters and creatures, with potential for an out-of-this-world sequel. Here’s hoping Shafer and company get a chance to take us there.”

The US video review is after the jump. Game’s out on the PS3 and 360 this week.
