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 your own music. The Music Studio in Guitar Hero: Metallica gives you Metallica specific tones such as Hetfields' ESP Truckster guitar, as well as Metallica drum sounds.

To put it simply, this game rocks. Since I picked it up the other day, I've played it almost non-stop and finished most songs on every instrument. I have work to do. I don't need another addiction. :)

Let's break things down:

Gameplay:
Gameplay is pretty much unchanged from World Tour except you can now do double bass drumming and the Career mode progression has changed quite a bit. As in other Guitar Hero games, when you beat a song you get a rating of up to 5 stars depending upon your performance. Like Rock Band and unlike previous Guitar Hero games, it is possible to get less than 3 stars, but as in Rock Band it is unlikely. To progress from one tier to the next you simply have to get a total number of stars on previous songs. This system makes it very easy to "beat" the game since the star requirements are very low and the ratings from all previous tiers, not just the current one, count. So if you want to progress to tier 7 and are having trouble with tier 6 songs, you can just go back and finish whatever tier 2 or tier 3 songs you didn't finish. Since the star rating requirements are so low, I managed to "beat" the game only completing about 40% of the songs (though I went back to finish the others). Another thing that makes the game easy to beat is the fact that the only required songs are very easy. You have to beat the first two songs, "For Whom the Bell Tolls" and "The Unforgiven", and you have to beat the last song, "The Thing That Should Not Be". They're three of the easiest songs in the game, and since you only need to beat 40% or so of the songs to beat the game, you can just do the easiest 40%. So, beating the game is no real challenge, although beating every song is.

I am not the usual demographic of person who plays Guitar Hero (a 40-something female who did NOT purchase the game for her children or grandchildren...it's for ME!) I also have GH 1, 2, 3, Aerosmith, and World Tour. The Metallica version is loaded with their music...it highlights their career, their accomplishments, and their overall greatness, but does so without the distasteful narcissism of the Aerosmith game (which was, IMHO, a colossal waste.) The Metallica game is, when comparing difficulty levels, just a bit tougher than the others. If you're playing another GH game and are getting bored on your current difficulty level but find the next one up too challenging, try the Metallica game. It's harder, but without making you feel like there's no F in way a particular song could be done.

The only thing I do NOT like is waiting for-ev-er for the songs to load (similar to World Tour in this respect.) The tracks are epic in length (it's Metallica!) so this is to be expected. Thus far Metallica is the best GH game yet. I recommend you purchase and enjoy!

I love the Guitar Hero series and I LOVE Metallica, so purchasing this game was a given. I pre-ordered it and got the Van Halen disc too! (SCORE!)
They did a good job with it. I would of liked more songs, but who wouldn't?

A fantastic game, One of the best guitar hero games in my opinion. The story-line is kind of weak weak, but the cutscenes offer some comic relief in between some furious fretwork and strumming. It requires a bit more technical skill in the right hand for many of the songs (due to the nature of the genre present) but if you hang in there and practice a bit, you'll find your playing to be almost mechanical and DEFINITELY percussive. if you love Metallica like me, this game is a must have. If you're looking for an excuse or a reason to get INTO Metallica, pick this game up and strap yourself in for some insane songs, many of which reach and even exceed the 7 minute mark. There is a small problem i encountered with the game, but luckily it's easily dealt with. the background of the notes (the highway as the game calls it) can play tricks on your eyes in this game, especially when playing as kirk hammett. to remedy this, there is a cheat you can enter from the options menu called "black highway", and it does just that. it removes the design you see underneath the notes and replaces it with a black board. some people find this takes away from the gameplay experience, but i personally think it helps you focus on the notes even more, and in many instances in this game - you'll need a lot of focus. (for your convenience, the cheat is: Yellow Red Green Red Green Red Red Blue) But even through it's flaws, this game shines bright, and the focus is more on the songs than the presentation, although the presentation is great in some instances. Find a copy and play it for yourself!

This is the best GH game made. Period. It has it all - great graphics, gameplay, music selection. If you have a PS2, and like guitar hero, this is an absolute must have game...better than Van Halen even. I have owned this for both PS3 and PS2, and the only differences I notice is a slight drop in graphics, but it still looks amazing!! Get it, rock out, and have fun!!!!
