Best for Hardcore Metallica Fans

I am a huge fan of the Guitar Hero franchise and was so excited when they released Guitar Hero: Metallica. However, I am not a huge Metallica fan myself, but I figured that, like Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, there would be plenty of offerings from other bands in addition to the Metallica canon. I was wrong! Sure, there are a few non-Metallica songs, but even they were very metal-oriented (I know what you're thinking- metal songs on a Metallica-based video game? Duh) Yes, I agree that I should have known, but I still kind of expected it to be a bit more mainstream.

Also, they seem to have changed the gameplay for career mode since World Tour. When I clicked Career Mode, it instantly took me to a Metallica concert where I had to jump right in to the first song- there was no song list from which to choose my first selection. I wasn't really a fan of that, and I sincerely hope it was just something weird I did with my controller to get me to that screen instead of a proper song list.

Love the band

Great game if you love Metallica like I do. I wish I could have played it longer that I did. I unfortunately could not play it because my equipment broke again. Yes again. I am not hard on the equipment and don't play everyday, but I have been able to break both the guitar and drum kit twice.

Great game, just wish the GH hardware was as well built and sturdy as EA's.
