Alright, I absolutely LOVE Metallica, and Guitar Hero Metallica was everything I had hoped for. This game was challenging, but the songs on it were worth playing over and over again. I didn't play any of the side-band songs, aside from "Tuesday's Gone" and "Turn the Page" (they were not my favorite), but you have to play at least two in the second set in order to get to the remaining Metallica songs - (These two were the best in my opinion, because Metallica covered them).
Over-all I would give this game a 10/10, and recommend it to all Metallica fans!
I did think the game was a little short, considering I had played every Metallica song in the game at least 3 times the first day I got it, but I just couldn't put it down. They didn't have all of the songs I had hoped to see, but it wasn't made only for me, so this isn't an issue at all. They have multiple songs from every CD, including St. Anger. It surprised and excited me to see Frantic, mainly because most people, for whatever reason, hate the St. Anger CD. Not I.
So this game is definitely a winner in my book, best Guitar Hero out there!
Guitar Hero Metallica is a great game even if you are not a huge fan of the band. I rented this game to see if my Rock Band 2 instruments would work on it. Let me say if you get it for PS3 or 360, IT DOES WORK NO MATTER WHAT ANYONE TELLS YOU. As I said before if you don't like Metallica too much its okay, I had not heard many of there songs but after I beat the game on drums I was hooked. It also has great graphics and a challenging set list if played on expert. Also it has amazing songs from 20+ guest bands. So I would recommend this game to anyone who likes Guitar Hero or Rock Band, likes Metallica or even not. For its great graphics , set list , guest acts and for being so great. A 10 out of 10 game!
