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.
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.

Top Customer Reviews
Let's break things down:
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.Read more ›
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!
They did a good job with it. I would of liked more songs, but who wouldn't?
