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!
Guitar Hero's "Metallica" a hit.

Epicness, the best GH ever to me

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.

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!
A difficult game

Loved playing Metallica songs and others, but unless you're an absolute freak, there is no reason to buy this. It should have been an addition to a library. Imagine if they have had guys from the band as DLC characters for Wolrd Tour and just released a new Metallica pack every month. People would have been all over that and it would have been amazing. But charging $60 was more appealing to them.
As it stands, it's the same as GH Aerosmith...play through it, play a lil more since I love the band and a lot of the included songs, then return it. Too many good games coming out to make a commitment to this one.
It does a great job of capturing the bands energy, though. Gotta give them props for that.
Some good music.

My only complaint was my Rockband 2 drums didn't work with the game. Of course, it's a GH game and I don't have that drum kit.
Everywhere I read, it looked like they were supposed to work, but they didn't for me. I kept getting booted out of songs because the orange cymbal wasn't available. I ended up playing through one song some how without the orange cymbal, of course my score sucked, but was to be expected.
an ok game

Guitar Hero Metallica, worst mix ever

Instead all the most popular songs are tossed in the first 2 - 3 sets and the rest, all the squiddliy deedily dee songs which classify FAR too much repetitiveness are everywhere else. So the enjoyment of the game quickly seems to wear off.
Graphics are standard and nothing much to talk about, and the music quality seems fine. I really didn't care for the extras, the vids weren't all that exciting, and the buyable content for your rocker was, well, I'll just say 'eh'.
Overall the game is weak because of it's poor mix. And the non metallica bands range from absolute garbage to mediocre at best with an occasional, "gee that's a good song" coming from out of the blue but those are few and far between. Okay, 4 exceptions, also in first 2 - 3 sets, Tuesdays gone, Turn the page, smokin in the boys room and stone cold crazy, those are awesome.
Works with Rock Band gear + it's METALLICA!

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.
Best for Hardcore Metallica Fans

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