Guitar Hero Metallica Review


World Tour left a bad taste in gamer's mouths. GH Metallica looks to punch that mouth.

As far as the tracks itself, Metallica picked their greatest hits from each album from the beginning up until today. So if you have wanted to play Master of Puppets for the longest time, now you can. And all the songs are original recordings, so you...

Guitar Hero Metallica Review (Xbox 360)


Guitar Hero Metallica for the Xbox 360 is a head banging, heavy metal addition to the popular game series. Play many of Metallica's classic and newly released songs from Death Magnetic, along with a song selections from other rock bands. Are you ready...

Guitar Hero: Metallica


Cheaper than DLC for any music game and more polished than Guitar Hero World Tour. Throw in the fact that it's fun on every instrument and you have yourself a winner.

Between the improvements in gameplay and the fabulous soundtrack, you really can't go wrong with this game. This is a must have for any fan of rhythm games involving plastic guitars, plastic drums, and USB mics

Guitar Hero: Metallica


Years ago, the glory that was Guitar Hero graced the PS2, and the audiences found that it was good. Lo, it spawned many children. There was Guitar Hero II, which greatly improved some gameplay mechanics and was the first with downloadable songs (albeit...

It's Metallica - very few bands fit the model of the genre better ; Wide selection of great metal with a great complement of other artists ; Extra challenge for the drummer, lots of fun for the expert on any instrument

It'd be nice if you could just always play as Metallica ; Support for GH:WT DLC would be nice ; Story mode felt a bit short, ended abruptly

Guitar Hero: Metallica is easily the best band-specific music game yet. Depending on the series’ that you count, it’s the second or third, and it definitely sets the bar for the others. It’s not perfect, but it's pretty darn good and does a lot more...

Guitar Hero: Metallica


True story: Back in 1996, Metallica visited my small Washington hometown to play a private concert for the winner of an MTV contest. This concert drew thousands of music-lovers to this one little house, a house that could only fit ten to fifteen...

Guitar Hero: Metallica is certainly better than its Aerosmith counterpart, but it still misses the point of the Guitar Hero franchise. There is a nice selection of songs here, even if it does feel a bit disjointed. If all you're looking for is a bunch...

Guitar Hero: Metallica


Epic heavy metal band Metallica and the Guitar Hero franchise both share a lot of similarities.? People tend to either love or hate them, not leaving much room for gray in between.? Both have had members of their teams split off and form their own...

A solid entry in the Guitar Hero series, but it doesn?t feel entirely like a brand new game. The ?pop up video? like Metallifacts feature is neat, but feels a bit tacked on. This game is a good addition to your library of rhythm games if you frequently...

Review: Guitar Hero: Metallica (Xbox 360)


Short Version: If you're a Metallica fan, this may quickly become your new favorite game. Drummers, too, will find the new Expert+ mode with double-bass pedal compatibility a welcome addition to the Guitar Hero series.

Guitar Hero: Metallica


For the past forty years one particular genre of music has always raised the stakes-- heavy metal. With a combination of strong guitar work, rumbling bass grooves, thunderous drumming and soaring vocals, heavy metal has pushed its way into territory...

The game’s Career mode unfolds in a standard fashion. You’ll begin by playing two of Metallica’s songs and then work your way through the other tracks. Interestingly enough, you’ll have all the songs available in Career well before you’ve even played...

Guitar Hero: Metallica


REVIEW: Obey your master!

Fun, balanced note charts honed for every difficulty level.; Numerous fan-service extras

Extra kick pedal almost worthless except on Expert

What, no extra song packs via DLC? Noooooo!
