    Platform for Display: Xbox 360Edition: Normal
    Greetings!

    I have long wanted to join the enviable group of the "Guitar Hero" and this is my first experience of the game, so in respect to offering a perspective on how good it is compared to the others (rock band etc) i cant help but what i can say is that this is more addictive than crack and more fun than playing the proper guitar which i do! i am a huge huge huge metallica fan and in buying this game it probably does have a limited market... even though they have sold over 100 million albums! But for anyone who likes a change of pace there are around 25 songs by other groups which really help break it up!

    As a game it is very simple to set up (around 5-10 minutes) and then you are ready to rock... i would suggest starting on easy which is still a fair challenge to novices like me! i had a quick go on expert (i say quick, it was around 7 seconds before i was booed off) and it is very very tough but something to aspire to, which leads on to the subject of replay value... there is tons and i strongly suspect over the coming months courtesy of XBOX Live there will be other bits to download.... bonza!

    Like i said i love Metallica and the reason i am so addicted to this game is almost honouring there songs by playing the game as well as possible... seriously though i guarentee you will never feel as satisfied as when you get your first 100% for a song... granted mine was very simple song but it still counts!

    In closing i highly recommend that at the very least you rent this game to make your mind up, it is brilliant, the graphics are stunning and the sound quality on the songs is superb... notably For Whom the Bell Tolls had a baseline that was ripping my chest apart!

    Buy it now... well worth the price!

    Platform for Display: Xbox 360Edition: Normal
    Another fantastic Guitar Hero title and you don't need to be a Metallica super-fan to appreciate it.

    I picked up a copy of the game shortly after release from the US (it's region-free, if anyone's interested, so you don't need to have a US Xbox 360 to play it) and I would recommend doing the same, if you can wait until the UK release date at the end of May.

    General
    The band have completed a lot of motion capture for the game, so if you've ever seen Metallica live or viewed any of their concert DVDs, you'll appreciate the details. Also, many of the venues recreate classic gigs. All of this extra detail helps add to the authenticity of the experience.
    Song Selection
    With 28 Metallica tracks and 21 tracks from other bands, all hand-picked by Metallica themselves, you get a good diversity of material. The non-Metallica tracks were surprisingly enjoyable, a far better selection than those in Guitar Hero: Aerosmith which felt a little like 'padding' in many cases in that game. The Metallica tracks selection is chosen from across their career, with the main concentration coming from Master of Puppets/Black Album era. The sound is the band is represented well from ballads like Nothing Else Matters and The Unforgiven right through to the blast beat mayhem of Fight Fire With Fire and Dyers Eve. Also, if have the Death Magnetic album DLC, all of that also plays in GH:M. Also wanted to add that the sound quality of the tracks is magnificent, with the songs bursting out of the speakers. Time a set of Metallica remastered CDs please, Lars.

    Guitar
    The guitar charts are a lot of fun, but be warned, Expert is really challenging - far more so than either Rock Band 2 or Guitar Hero: World Tour.

    3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Martin Colbert on 31 May 2009
    Platform for Display: Xbox 360Edition: Normal
    I have to admit i was slightly worried when i found out about this title. As a massive Metallica fan I didnt want this game to go down the same way GH Aerosmith and GH world tour did with me. Fortunately I was not disappointed. This is quite possibly the best game in the guitar hero series. The track list is amazing and has everything any Metallica fan could ask for. You also don't need to play the game for long to unlock all of the songs which is a definate bonus. The graphics are definately the best out of any GH or Rockband title. Although I am still more of a Rockband fan I will definately keep coming back to GH Metallica again and again.
    To sum up GH Metallica is an amazing game which will keep any keen player going for a long time, definately worth having!

    Platform for Display: Xbox 360Edition: Normal
    Having bought the limited edition (featuring a t-shirt and zombie / 80s outfits for Metallica to wear, plus other assorted goods) a few days ago, I felt the compulsion to write a review... having spent most of these last few days playing it almost non-stop - even choosing it over the need for sleep at times.

    The attention to detail is fantastic, capturing so much minor details of the band's performance it will even acknowledge when James Hetfield (singer) will get something in his eye and wipes it out. And as for the setlist, mostly flawless - with only questionable choices being personal preferences (out of the obligatory "guess we should acknowledge this album" St Anger era, wouldnt the titular track be a better song than Frantic?, and a personal preference of Unforgiven II over say, Whenever I May Roam / Memory Remains).
    the graphics are a HUGE leap forward from World Tour, whilst retaining its cartoon feel perfectly.
    Then we move on to the difficulty.As always, the difficulty curve itself is sometimes questionable for certain songs, but is never a real buzz-kill.
    Expert on Thing That Should Not Be on guitar is something of a challenge (but when drinking can be endless fun if you hire a friend to stand behind you and operate the orange button)
    and the replay value is endlessly entertaining.

    My only niggle comes in the form of, to date, there is no version that is released in a full band back (a la World Tour) whicih whilst for the most of the world doesnt pose a problem, for myself and roommate who have never purchased a GH ame before now and only borrowed them, getting a hold of the drums for Expert+ mode has been something of a problem. That said, despite this, the game is truly a classic and will be played endlessly upon purchase!
