5.0 out of 5 stars RAWKKKKKKKKKK!!! 31 May 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Normal
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Metallica Rocks! 26 April 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Normal
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceeded expectations 31 May 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Normal
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
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!

2.0 out of 5 stars enjoy it while it lasts 1 July 2010

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I caught the guitar hero bug a few months ago and it lasted a whole two weeks. At first guitar hero metallica and other guitar hero games are fun but they get boring quickly. At some point you will sit there thinking, why am i doing this? why dont i just play the cd or by a real guitar. Its not worth all the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. 20 Jun 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Normal
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Overall the game was excellent. The new gui is much better then in GH:WT and the increased difficulty on songs was good. All instruments were fun to play, although I find the drums are the most exciting part to play.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! More tracks please!!! 16 Jun 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Normal
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was a latecomer to Guitar games but since getting GH3 and loving it, ive bought and played nearly ever similar game released. THIS in my opinion is the most enjoyable of the lot!!
I AM a fan of Metallica, though i wouldnt consider myself to be a blindly loyal one but i must say that i got a HUGE amount of enjoyment from playing tracks i've liked for years. Sad but true, master of puppets, orion, Sanitarium and many others made me grin more than i can remember any other guitar game doing!
The only problem i have with this game is the actual number of tracks on the disc and the number of tracks by Metallica. When Rock Band 2 and GH:WT have 80+ tracks on disc on release, 40+ doesnt really seem good value. Though i suppose as many of the Metallica tracks are over 8 minutes long the total playing time may not be too bad.
I am pleased how the career mode works in a similar way to Rock Band2 eg numerous gigs with a selection of the songs in each one and im currently sat at work, waiting to finish early before the Mrs gets home, so i can turn the volume up and carry on playing!
Enjoy!
