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!
