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!
