The next Guitar Hero is here! Get ready to thrash with the definitive collection of Metallica's music and over 20 other rocking bands on guitar, drums, vocals and bass. Up to four players can join together and rock locally, or battle other bands online with up to 8 players. Guitar Hero: Metallica includes the "Rock Star Creator," playing with friends online, the full Music Studio and the user-created music sharing service, Guitar Hero Tunes. Finally play the Death Magnetic downloadable content as Metallica.

The game supports two kick pedals in a new "Expert+" mode, letting you drum like Lars on two bass drums. Go deeper into Metallica with videos straight from Metallica concerts and the option to test your Metallica know-how on any song you beat with facts on the band's history, and how guest acts are tied to Metallica. Metallica has added their own touch from the attacks in Battle Mode to the effects in the Music Studio.

Requires a compatible drum, microphone or guitar controller to play (sold separately)

 Metallica fans... In a word, AMAZING!

I've had this game now for four days and I haven't left it alone. I have been a big Metallica fan for years but waned when they released St. Anger and the Some Kinda Monster DVD (near career suicide in my opinion). But the release of this game has certainly made me want to dust off my old Metallica albums and crank it up. The GH franchise is nothing short of genius. Who doesn't want to feel 'a bit' like their idols, the air guitar generations wishing they could play and sound as good at their heroes. Well now you can. The game play is slick, the interface is improved from the GHWT game, showing you on the main game screen your number of stars you will achieve with a progress bar that goes up the better you do and hence go up to the next 'star' rating... Also... You can get TROPHIES!!! Massive loss on the Guitar Hero 3 and GHWT formats that you couldn't get, and a major plus point for GH: Metallica. The setlist is excellent, can't really pick any fault, good range and diverse number of other band names (Alice in Chains and Slayer to name a couple... Awesome!) If you like Metallica you'll appreciate the brilliance that this sets. It will definitely open the floodgates for other class live bands to release their own title (can you imagine a MUSE GH!!!) I must for any fan, both of Metallica and Guitar Hero. I just need my other bass pedal now to have a go on Expert+ mode of drums for abit of 'Lars' double bass action!

 Awsome songs bad game

Guitar hero metallica is a great game, since you already heard the songs a houndred times before you may find out that you grow tired og the game. I wish there were more songs and a better career mode.
The career Mode is not interesting at all. On guitar hero world tour you chose gigs, here you just pick a song and play it. and that `s what you do. Therefore you don`t get the feeling of playing a concert.

But even tho there are few songs there are all awsome( maybe 1-3 song i don`t like). There are 28 Metallica songs and 21 guest songs.

Now, there is some things that are kind of cool: On stage i looks like Metallica are playing the songs ( thanks to the motion capture)

Backstage photos and concert videos. They have also inclouded metallicfacts witch is that if you choose a song and coose metallifacts you wont`t have to play the song instead there are comming these facts on screen while Metallica is playing, This is kinda cool.

But if you are a Metallica fan you should buy this game, if not you will still find some fun with it.

 a m,ust for gh fans

This Guitar Hero game is by far my favorite, great game play, every song has its own unique style and flare from the digital band themselves. You do not have to play through the entire career mode to quickplay any song you want. However customizing your rocker is not as fun considering 80% of the songs that are fun to play are Metallica and you always have to play as the band. I rarely see my rocker at all.

 Close to the best music game ever

This game is truly great amongst music games. The Difficultly is the hardest in the GH series since GH3, the set list is the best of for Metallica and i cant complain about the choices of songs but yes there probably is one or two songs you wish were on here but play all the songs and you wont care. I haven't experienced the Expert+ for drums yet but ive seen what the difficultly is like and it really will give you a run for your money. Deffo the better buy between this and GH:Smash Hits.
The only reason it is the best music game is because it is band centred and for what ever reason your not a Metallica fan (altho you will become one after playing this) then it isn't for you and instead Rock Band 2 will blow your mind for its amazing general track list.
