This game was the best Guitar Hero game I have ever played. Metallica is the KING OF METAL. They should make another Metallica game. They should make a ROCK BAND METALLICA. The game should have an autographed ROCK BAND guitar. The drums should have the Metallica logo on each pad. METALLICA IS AWSOME.

This game will make you not want to return it for your whole gamefly subscription!
The game is, of course, based on the hardcore 80's to present Metal band called metallica, where you play through many of their hit songs and other guest acted bands whom were inspired by Metallica. The career mode puts you as a garage rock band who was inspired by Metallica and wants to make it big and famous as a metal band. You play through certain songs, in order from easiest to hardest, to complete the game. But this game is really good because you dont have to complete career mode to unlock all the songs; they're already there when you start the game in quickplay. This way, you don't spend all your gamefly subscription trying to unlock all the songs to play! This is a very welcoming way to present this game. On another note, the gameplay is extremely fun to play, when you select your character when playing guest acts, and play as Metallica when playing their songs. The graphics are surprisingly good for the Wii version. With songs from nearly every album of Metallica, including nearly the whole list of the Master of Puppets album's songs, and songs like "Dyer's Eve" "Frantic" "For Whom The Bell Tolls" "The Shortest Straw" and "Enter Sandman." This game includes lots of variety in its music. Some of the great guest acts are "War Inside My Head" by Suicidal Tendencies, "The Boys Are Back in Town" By Thin Lizzy, and "Stone Cold Crazy" by Queen. But, one thing that disappointed me greatly was the fact that the Metallica song called, "Am I Evil?" was covered up by Diamond Head, and it sounds Terrible! The singer sounds like he's yodelling on a cliffside! In any event, there are 3 good Metallica songs not there, because Rock Band 2 got to them first. They were "And Justice For All..." "Blackened," and "Ride the Lightning."
In any case, this game has excellent sound quality, many songs, has great graphics, and has 4-player gameplay. This is a great game that WILL last long!

I dont see how the rating is not higher!!!! This game is simply AMAZING!! Just the fact that there are sooooooooo many Metallica songs alone makes it a 10 in my book. There are plenty of other bands as well as a bonus. I love it!!!! Best one so far to me.
