the premise of the game seems fun...play your favorite metallica songs, and while it is fun to play SOME cool songs by metallica the game falls short of anything new and exciting. there is an expert+ mode for the drums which adds "double bass", but is only "playable" if you have a second kick pedal, or a robot ankle. the "other" bands in this game are not impressive at all. the overall note charts seems to be very simple. I WAS a fan of the guitar hero series, but since guitar hero 2, it seems like its geared more toward children. go and play rock band, overall its a more solid game. they have something for everybody and tons of dlc. they have challenging metallica songs(dlc).
guitar hero metallica sucks if your not ubsessed with metal music. i'm not ubsessed with metal music i mean i like 5 songs by metallica and the game is still disapointing. theres only stone cold crazy, turn the page, and tuesdays gone that are not really metal tunes. plus half the stuff in the game people have never heard of unless you love metallica.

I just recieved this game a few days ago and can't play it with a standard controller like I can with legends of rock. I don't have a guitar so I use my controller. It forces me to sing which I don't want to do, and there are no other options. I really want to play this game but I'm not going to spend 50 bucks for a guitar on a rental game. I even e-mailed activision with no response. I called activision but no option to speak to a live person. If you rent this game you will not be able to use a standard controller.
