Back in 1999, Iron Maiden released Ed Hunter, a greatest hits compilation that also included a video game of the same name. The game hasn’t aged well at all (and even in 1999, it was underwhelming). 17 years, though, have wrought enormous changes in the video gaming industries, and thusly, Iron Maiden’s second effort (at least, if you don’t count the minigame released for “Speed of Light”) is under development. Legacy of the Beast describes itself as “an epic free-to-play mobile role playing game, set in the expansive Iron Maiden universe,” and like any bandgame it understandably includes many songs from Iron Maiden’s career, as well as some live recordings that will remain exclusive to the game for some time. Little concrete information has been released on how this game will actually play, but a signup for a mailing list on the game’s webpage suggests upcoming information in the near future…

    Book of Souls is a bloated mess, a mohel should have snipped a half-hour off of it.

    “The expanisve Iron Maiden universe” Try saying that without a nasally lisp. This band is for nerds!

    That ‘cash grab’ tag sums up the whole thing.

    Pretty much guaranteed to suck by virtue of being a mobile app game.
