All these reviewers that claim that its 'just' Metallica, have you any idea why?
It's in the title. Guitar Hero: METALLICA.
This game is absolutely brilliant. It's your basic Guitar Hero game, with some new features added to it. You'll be playing your favorite Metallica songs for a VERY long time.
There isnt exactly a story, just some cut scenes that show your supposed to be Metallica's 'warm-up' band before gigs. You wont be playing as that band alot, because when you choose a Metallica song you have to play as Metallica.
There are some epic classics in the game which are alot of fun to play. For example, you have:
Master of Puppets
Seek & Destroy
The Shortest Straw
and many, many more! It doesnt fail if your looking for a Guitar Hero game with classic thrash metal songs.
I've read some reviewers complain that it wont last long, or theirs no online band system. First, yes, it will not last you long if your not a Metallica fan. Second, there is a band system. But its only 'Band quickplay'. There is not band career, but why would there be? Their is no story to the game.
All in all, this game is a must buy for any Metallica fan. It will have you playing for hours on end...and you'll love to play those classic riffs from there older songs.
I hope this review has helped!
