This game was amazing. The Setlist was really great, They picked the best Metallica songs. Though other than Metallica, there wasnt much more great music on there. They did have a Alice in chains song and Queen but Everything else was ok. If your really good at Drums,or guitar, this game is so fun. Im pretty awesome at drums and guitar and i was having a blast! so all in all 10 outa 10, Amazing game, Great setlist and the Metallica fix everyone needs!

I bought the complete Rock Band gear when it came out so I could play the drums. I was never into GH but I couldn't resist getting RB because I was more interested in playing drums since it is closer to the real thing playing the drums in RB/GHWT than it is playing the guitar in these games. I am glad that I am able to use my original RB drum kit with GHM but to really get the full experience of the game you need the GHWT drum kit because of the special high hat and cymbal which is not present on the original RB drum kit. I may consider getting GHWT wireless drum kit when it gets cheaper but for now, I'm going to rock out with the kit I have. GHM is a lot of fun if you're a Metallica fan. Knowing the songs really helps to play the game for me as I didn't miss that many of the notes (I don't know how play real drums) the first time around playing Unforgiven or For Whom the Bells Toll. In contrast, the first time I played Just What I Needed by the Cars in RB, I couldn't even finish the song.

Graphic-wise, they could improve the character drawings to really bring out a HD experience on the PS3 or 360 otherwise you could just play it on the Wii.

This was an excellent attempt at giving real cred to the Guitar Hero franchise. The music was awesome as it IS Metallica!! The addition of the Expert + was pure genius, opening up for songs by Slipknot (I can dream can't I?) and other HEAVY bands. The presentation is less cartoonish than previous GH titles which was a welcome feel. Metallica didn't deserve to be cartoonish with giand arms and tiny heads. The game as a whole was well done. My MAIN problem with THIS game... its ANOTHER GH game to collect dust. When you are finished rocking out to the songs on the dics... you are left with user created songs. Where GH lacks is where Rock Band triumphs. Rock Band allows you to export your songs to play with BOTH Rock Band and Rock Band 2, PLUS you can export Rock Band songs for play in 2. GH, you have to CONTINUOUSLY swap discs. DLC is for World Tour. Metallica is only for Metallica, etc. I want the FULL rock experience. Its like having a shelf of great CDs that have a few good song and having to shuffle through them to get what you want (Guitar Hero) or you can have all the GREAT songs on your iPod handy without the fuss (Rock Band). Guitar Hero: Metallica is a great effort, for the short term gamer. Once the songs are dominated.... there is really no reason to go back. No expandability. Maybe this is Activision's way of keeping the money coming. I'd rather just have GREAT DLC that works on multiple games than to pay for another disc of great songs that will just sit around... collecting dust. What I want is Rock Band: U2. Can someone make that happen?
