Oh my god! Guitar Hero Metallica was the best game I have ever played...This game has the best songs from Metallica like Master Of Puppets, One, All Nightmare Long, and more... This game also includes the best bands like Motorhead, System Of A Down, and more.

First of all, if you don't like Metallica, then you probably wont like this game.

This game has the feel and aspect of Metallica in every way. Every animation and every game movement is all the band itself. Every song was recorded in a game studio by the band itself for the in-game animations. The stage presecence on the game and what Metallica does in game IS EXACTLY METALLICA!

This game has a lot of the great songs of Metallica featuring their most popular songs such as "Master of Puppets" and "Enter Sandman". These aren't the only two. The game provides a large variety of the most popular songs by Metallica.

Songs also by other bands such as Machine Head, Slayer, and more.

If your familiar with Guitar Hero World Tour then this shouldn't be any different than that. There was really no improvement from GH:WT to GH:M. The animations from the characters, the new guitar brands (When creating a rock star) featured by EMG and ESP, and the songs are the only three new features to be expected from this more recent title. Also another feature that was added was a Expert+ feature for Percussion. Thought expert was hard? Try with a Double Bass pedal (sold separately) and experience the true Metallica.

On the bright side the slight changes keep the general GH feel and you won't have to be getting used to anything new.

The story mode is plain and simple which is kind of dull. You play songs and go to new venues. And that is pretty much it.

Your a rising new band looking up in Metallicas footsteps, so your band tries out to be a Support for Metallica and end up going on tour with them. If your familiar from Guitar Hero III your going to see some familiar faces in this one.

Last words, this game is really only meant for a Metallica Fan.
If your not a fan of Metallica, this game can also be great if your into the Metal genre or looking to try something a little bit more challenging. That is why I give GH:M a 8 out of 10

Metallica is personally one of my favorite bands to play either Rock Band or Guitar Hero on, so i was pretty excited about this game. This game has mostly Metallica songs on it and it really has some good metallica songs on it. And it has some other bands on it like Queen and Lynrd Skynrd. But this game doesnt just have new songs on it. Also if you bought the Metallica Death Magnetic pack itll work on this disc too. One really big thing that Drummers and Bassists hated about this game is the purple line that comes tward you when you either have to kick pedal or strum, was kind of hard to see sometimes. And they have make it a tad bit easier to see it. Not quite as easy to see as Rock Band kick pedal line though. Also one thing i didnt like about World Tour is that its kind of hard to switch difficulties sometimes online and to switch between guitar and bass. However they really didnt do much to advance that this time. Also when your drumming on harder difficulties, metallica songs have a lot of kick pedal, which is why if you preordered it from Gamestop you got a second kick pedal. So overall this game is a really nice addition to your song library. Try it out now!
