Guitar Hero: Metallica


ESRB Rating
T - Teen


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. You'll also be able play downloadable content from their latest album, Death Magnetic.

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.

5 out of 5 eggsawesome game!

Pros: great game for any metallica or guitar hero fan. the songs list is great and challenging.

gives additional info for metallica and other songs.

guitar/bass/singing are the same as world tour.

expert+ for double bass petals make the drumming more challenging and accurate.

online play is fun with the faceoffs, band v band, coop guitar, 2v2 guitar, band quickplay, and the battle mode with new looking power ups.

Cons: -no new dlc
-gh tunes downloads dont carry over from world tour.(you can still download/play songs made from the world tour game)
-online seems to less people then worldtour, so finding faceoff/battle matches may take some time.

which these are minor things

Other Thoughts: wished it had "my apocalypse" "holier then thou" songs on there

tho i have read in other console versions there are death magnetic songs on the game but they took them out for the xbox360 version because they had the track download for gh3...

5 out of 5 eggsSolid!

Pros: Amazing set list (especially when compared to World Tour), Expert + mode for drums, It seems like they paid more attention to detail in this one,.

Cons: Any problems from World Tour were carrier over to Metallica. It will become tiresome after a while, like any other GH game.

Other Thoughts: If you like metal(lica) then you'll be sure to love this game.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Game

Pros: Very fun to play Metallica songs. Drum lines are just about completely dead on. Online play is a great time with random strangers.

Cons: Not much

Other Thoughts: Its a fun game that many are saying is the best Guitar Hero to date. I don't agree completely with that, but it is a great game that anyone who digs Metallica or Guitar Hero should pick up.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: THIS IS THE GAME THAT WAS MEANT FOR GUITAR HERO!!!! If you are a fan of either, this is a must, even better if you own World Tour and the instruments.

Cons: You will get tired and sore from trying to drum in 90% of the songs! If that is a con.

Other Thoughts: Do yourself a favor and just get it.

5 out of 5 eggsguitar hero was made for this

Pros: Amazing setlist, LOTS old songs and new and a video of metallica playing 'Orion' live, worth $60 right there in my opinion
The songs are more challenging too, noticed the difference right way, but that's a good thing in my opinion
You get a lot of songs, right away

Cons: none yet

Other Thoughts: wish they'd of given a little more credit to Jason and Cliff, not that I have anything against Robert, but lets face it, if not for Cliff Burton and Jason, Metallica wouldn't be what it is today

5 out of 5 eggsGH Metallica ROCKS!

Pros: If you are a Metallica fan, this is must! Go out to the store and pick it up ASAP!

Cons: It is the usual $60 for a 360 game....

Other Thoughts: Unless you have been playing drums since you were a kid, dont try the expert plus, you will get owned!
