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