Guitar Hero: Metallica


For Metallica fans, this game is incredible. For everyone else, it's a decent spinoff in the Guitar Hero series that improves a few things.

New interface changes are great ; The bonus materials are interesting ; Awesome for Metallica fans

Song selection revolves around one genre, with a few a exceptions ; Nothing special for people who don't listen to Metallica ; Songs not transferable to World Tour ; No downloadable content

I agree with Pro, though I already have all of the Death Magentic DLC, so for me it would be useless. I don't mind seeing some other bands on there - but playing Master of Puppets and then playing The Boys Are Back in a crime against...

Guitar Hero: Metallica review


Guitar Hero is a cultural phenomenon. Not only does it get referenced in pop culture, it is one of the highest selling franchises (both in dollars and units). The video game industry has been looking for a yearly franchise that wasn't Madden or Need...

While not a whole lot has changed, Guitar Hero: Metallica does everything that you have come to expect from a Guitar Hero game. From the single player story to quick play and online, as well as a music creator and custom characters. If you are a fan of...

Guitar Hero: Metallica


Just as Guitar Hero: Aerosmith was something of a glorified expansion of Guitar Hero III, Guitar Hero: Metallica serves as an extension of Activision's band-focused hit Guitar Hero: World Tour, offering gamers a feel for life in and around one of heavy me

Guitar Hero: Metallica (Wii) review


It's loud, it's challenging, and there is a mild chance you will catch an STD playing it. Guitar Hero: Metallica has arrived!

While Metallica fans will and should be moshing their way to the nearest game store immediately, there is not much here for anyone else. Whether simply not a fan of the band or one of the few remaining people who doesn't like music rhythm games,...

Guitar Hero: Metallica


Four years is a relatively long time in the world of gaming. In that amount of time we have seen both consoles and series come and go, never to be remembered. So to have a gaming series survive in this time is an accomplishment in itself, let alone to...

It's got Metallica in it ; So many options ; Appeals to all experience levels ; Good range of tunes ; Wii Remote noises and vibration ; Great career mode story ; You can use other instruments

Difficult in places ; No full band packages available (just solus and guitar bundles)

Guitar Hero: Metallica is further proof (as if we needed it) that the series is going from strength to strength. They have managed to produce a game that appeals to literally everyone, particularly Metallica fans. We can only hope that the guys at...

The game is well thought out; packed with features!


Overall this game is worth the purchase. There are tons of fun, user friendly "design your own" options. The songs are well thought out, popular, fun and yet remain challenging. The guest songs are equally popular and sometimes even more challenging!...

The ability to design your own logo is easy to use and really fun. Designing your instrument and rocker is something other games have been missing. The songs are well thought out. They are popular songs yet equally challenging

As expected with the Wii, and GH the graphics are terrible and monotonous and lack color. The tutorials are short, and a little confusing. Comments on the loading screen are not nearly as clever as with GH Aerosmith

Guitar Hero: Metallica Wii Game Activision


Lots of options to customize your GH character, etc.

In my opinion, this is the best Guitar Hero to hit the market. A true rockers game. The difficulty is a notch higher than any GH ive played. The kids love it, the wife loves it, its great

I love the smell of gaming in the morning


Battalion wars had quite a bit of hype from the launch of the wii. It was originally scheduled for a gamecube release but was held back as it was thought it would suit wii's control scheme better. It seems that people got sick of waiting for it as when...

Online play and decent graphics

Can get old quickly

Battalion 1.5 with internet!


So what do you get with bad voice acting, online play, bland graphics, simple military strategy, and intuitive gameplay? How about a mediocre game experience due to the fact it seems like I have been here and done that. Facts North American ...

Online play, real time strategy, more vehicles

no voice, graphics, depth
