Being a Metallica fan from way-back this game is great on several levels,
One thing that makes this game great is, of course, being able to take part in the best band EVER. Standing in as the gutiaris of Metallica is like a fantasy in which if I don't pull my weight and hit those lick the song falls apart.
A lot of these songs, from Fade to back to Master of Puppets take me back. So, on top of being a guitar-playing fantasy, Guitar Hero Metallica is like a Guitar-Playing stroll down to where The Memory Remains!
Ok, let’s just get this out of the way right now. It's called Guitar Hero "METALLICA" of course it's only going to focus on one brand... Stop whining that it doesn't have variety, you can't play anything non related to Metallica, and it has no replay value. It was made especially for Metallica and Metallica fans that's why only the Death Magnetic DLC works with the game. If you don't like Metallica then don't rent or buy this game it's clearly not for you.
Now for the review, for me it's the greatest GH ever made, I'm a huge Metallica fan myself I love everything but ST Anger. So naturally I love this game and play it religiously enery single day. The only two complaints I have is that 1 It's not centered around them enough and 2 it doesn't have enough Metallica songs on it, however I can let it slide.
Presantation: Is very good the begining cut scene where it shows all the album logos being sucked into the Death Magnitec Coffin is absolutly amazing. The beginning of carrer is epic, playing the estacy of gold as the band members walk out into stage gives me goosebumbs every time I see it. The stage designs are also very well done. In my opinion there where not enough cut scenes, but the ones there are very good.
Battle mode: Is also very well done, the powers being themed and named from real Metallica songs it a nice touch.
Sound: Very good lots of the must haves, though I would have preferred many more Metallica songs even if that meant dumping the varieties.
Graphics: are the same as World Tour which could have been better. Each band member has 3 different versions of themselves Current, Young, and Zombie, which is very cool.
Overall: If you like Metallica then it's diffidently for you, if don't like Metallica, hard songs, or heavy metal go rent GH5.
