Jack Black can be brutally funny. But in this video game, he plays a character who is both brutal and funny. He's the lead guy in EA Games' "Brutal Legend," a title for the Microsoft Xbox 360 and Sony PlayStation 3 that takes players into a fantasy world set in the realm of heavy metal music.

Black plays a former roadie who ends up in an ancient world of heavy metal. In this world, the character Eddie Riggs has to rescue humans from demonic forces. Along the way, players face off against mountains that are made of huge amplifiers, spiders who instead of spinning webs, churn out guitar strings and ... well, you get the picture.

The title is rated M for Mature audiences by the ESRB, with advisories for blood and gore, intense violence, partial nudity, strong language and suggestive themes.
