Follow the Career of Metallica and Play as Your Own Upstart
Guitar Hero: Metallica is similar to Guitar Hero World Tour in that you play a full suite of instruments. When the game starts, you're the new band on the block with aspirations of opening for Metallica. The game goes back and forth between performances by Metallica and performances of songs that influenced Metallica by your band. The band was motion captured so you'll recognize their unique motions on screen and style of playing.

As you progress in the game, you'll start to unlock bonus features such as videos of old Metallica performances, backstage photos, and "Metallifacts," which enables different trivia to show up while a song is playing, similar to VH1's Pop-Up Video.

Metallica Recordings from Original Masters and More Via Download
Guitar Hero: Metallica features 49 songs in total, 28 Metallica songs, and 21 songs that are favorites of the band and have influenced them. The Metallica songs are sourced from original masters so you'll have the best audio quality available.

Game Difficulty Goes from One All The Way Up to Eleven
Metallica exhibit technical prowess while performing, and this game goes from Beginner all the way to Expert Plus difficulty. Hardcore gamers will not be disappointed. You'll have to play guitars, drums, and sing, and in the "Expert Plus" difficulty, you'll have to plug in a second bass pedal for double bass pedal drum work.

Real-Life Venues
As you go on tour, you'll be playing venues small and large, and you might recognize some that you've been to. Famous venues that played a part in Metallica's career such as The Stone and the Hammersmith Odeon are included in the game and have been duplicated with great detail.

Grab Your Friends and Play Together
Multiplayer is part of what made Guitar Hero such a hit and it is no different here. Gather your friends and family, and jam Metallica tunes together. The game also features Metallica-specific power ups for competitive multiplayer. For example, "Fade to Black" will black out your opponent's notes, and "Trapped Under Ice" will freeze their whammy bar.

Create Your Own Music
Those familiar with Guitar Hero World Tour will welcome back the Music Studio, where you can create new music and then upload and share them through the GHTunes service. The Music Studio in Guitar Hero: Metallica gives you Metallica specific tones such as Hetfields' ESP Truckster guitar, as well as Metallica drum sounds.

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing, but... April 3, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First off, I think this edition is superior to any other Guitar Hero game. The fantastic quality of the game and song selection is worth the extra money, which some people have complained about. Any fan of Metallica can appreciate the work put into this game. And for the impatient Metallica fans, you only have to beat a couple of songs to get about 9 more songs, so you can skip right to the 'tallica ones.
I don't care much about graphics, but the ones in this game are terrific. The band members look kind of creepy, but overall match pretty well with their actual appearances.
That said, my one complaint about the game is the final song. These types of game have been known for increasing the difficulty of songs, while giving you a powerhouse of a song at the end (Freebird, Through The Fire And Flames, etc). So what's the finale for this game? The Thing That Should Not Be. A good song in its own right, but anyone who knows it also knows that it's certainly not Metallica's fastest, most difficult or most interesting song by a long shot. It really boggles my mind as to why they chose it to be the final song. I just beat it on Easy and, especially after getting through Dyers Eve and Fight Fire With Fire (which are fairly tricky even on Easy), the one-note repetitive strumming of 'Thingy' was a giant let-down.
Apparently Neversoft didn't want to include Blackened or And Justice For All since they're available for Rock Band, which sucks but is fair enough. I have no idea why 'Thingy' was chosen instead of, say, The Four Horsemen. That song is fast, long and quite epic- perfect for the end of a Guitar Hero game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Too Much Fun! April 29, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Guitar Hero Metallica for the Wii is just great! The songs are very challenging which makes them so much fun to play. We also have the drums and that makes it double the fun to play with someone else. I highly recommend this title for any Guitar Hero fan, let alone Metallica fans everywhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of all Guitar Hero Titles April 30, 2009
By M. Smyk
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The game plays much better than the other titles in this series. The animations are ridiculous as this is the first time that actual band member video capture was used to show every last mannerism and make the songs truly come alive in the experience. The extras, like behind the scenes videos and facts about the songs and band are a must for the true hardcore fan. A++++++++++++++++.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Guitar Hero Game May 8, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I may be biased because I am an old school Metallica fan, but this game should be the high water mark for other Guitar Hero and Rock Band games that showcase a band. As far as the other band exclusive games, Aerosmith was weak as best and the AC/DC game could have been more than just the live album. I hope the Beatles game will be everything this game is and maybe a bit more.

4.0 out of 5 stars intense! April 20, 2009
By Jenifer
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is intense. The songs are super fun to play since a good majority of them are really fast, even on easy. I have a great time playing this game with my husband. This is probably the best GH I have played so far.

The only thing I DONT like is having to sit through the lame videos when starting the game. I'd like to be able to skip past though but it doesnt seem to let us do that like the other GH games do.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As someone who plays Guitar on Expert level, this is the ultimate Guitar Hero game ever made. Even though this game has just short of 50 tracks (compared to 85 for Guitar Hero 5), they are almost all fun to play with great note charts. Fast blasts of strumming, insane solos, fun riffs, this game really has it all. The drums charts are equally awesome and fun to play. It's almost all metal, so if you needed a variety of genres instead, you might be better off with Smash Hits, World Tour, or GH5.

One reason why these charts are so fun is because they have a lot of fun note patterns not seen in other games/songs. Playing these gave me new appreciation for Metallica's guitar skill.

The only disappointment was that Wii only gets 4 Death Magnetic songs, with no opportunity to download the rest of the album like Xbox and PS3. The songs we get are: All Nightmare Long (one of the best tracks on the game), Broken Beat & Scarred, Cyanide, and My Apocalypse. It would have been nice to get That Was Just Your Life, The Day That Never Comes, and End of the Line.

I can't think of any "nasty surprises" in this game, aside from the fact they deleted Online Band Career mode (which GHWT had). So if you want to play with an internet band, your only option is Nintendo WFC "Band Quickplay" which doesn't show your score stats afterwards. In other words, the score is virtually meaningless for internet matches because you'll never get a chance to see how the other guy did. An obnoxious flaw in the game, but not a dealbreaker by any means. It's still a blast when you get a match and the other guy is picking metal songs round after round (unlike GHWT where someone might pick On the Road Again or Hollywood Nights.)

What would really be the ultimate is if they allowed this game to export to Guitar Hero 5.
