Excerpt: Do you ever buy games and forgot about them or just haven’t gotten around to playing them? That’s the story of this game for me. I’m a sucker for game sales and I remember picking up Guitar Hero: Metallica on sale but not playing it since I wanted to complete Rock Band: Beatles first. We did beat it and got tired of the genre and took a break from it. Another year or so passed and this game sat waiting in its wrapper to be opened and enjoyed.
Conclusion: If you play rhythm games, you owe it to yourself to try Guitar Hero: Metallica. It has some of the best made venues (based off of actual performances), the best onstage performances we’ve ever seen in any game, a good soundtrack, and it’s the best metal game out. Metallica is definitely The Thing That Should Be.
Excerpt: There's a real danger that Guitar Hero may be falling into the same trap that EA's FIFA series did in the late 1990s, in the sense that we seem to be getting more games than we arguably need. This year we're already set to receive GH: Metallica, GH: Van Halen and GH: Smash Hits, as well as proper follow up to last year's wildly successful GH: World Tour.
Conclusion: Guitar Hero Metallica adds nothing new to the franchise, but hardcore fans of the band will appreciate it more than the others. Like a concert, it’s loud and flashy and if you have a few buddies to join your band, it makes the experience much better. The track list of available songs should keep you entertained for many hours, but just like the Aereosmith Guitar Hero, it is limited to a specific audience.
Conclusion: Concept: Guitar Hero. Metallica. The name says all there is to know
Graphics: Impressive in-the-round staging and dramatic camera angles make this the most visually exciting GH game yet. Even better, the characters models don't look like Muppets anymore
Sound: If you love metal, you'll be in heaven. For my money, Metallica is the ultimate Guitar Hero band.
Excerpt: Metallica fans unite! It has finally arrived! A fun game that features Metallica and it isn't a terrible car combat game. Guitar Hero: Metallica is the second licensed entry into the franchise and it seems to me that it is also the first one since Guitar Hero 2 that feels like the creators' hearts were poured into making it.
Summary: Every Metallica fan can point to songs they like that are missing from this game, but it simply shreds no matter what instrument you play. I'm more of a fan of old school Metallica, but the songs are picked well enough that the newer material doesn't get in the way. In fact, the tempo changes and stitched-together manner of the songs off of St. Anger and Death Magnetic actually make them fun ? especially with Lars' drum fills.
Excerpt: Metallica is the second band to get the spotlight for their own Guitar Hero game, and this time out the result is a far better experience. While Guitar Hero Metallica does have an advantage over Guitar Hero Aerosmith in that it was released after Guitar Hero World Tour, so it supports drums and vocals in addition to guitar and bass, but there's more to it than that.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is This game is defiantly going to make a countless number of people happy. Imagine how many Metallica influenced metal fans are playing GH at the moment. They now have their very own game to mess around with that includes their favourite Metallica songs to go with many other related pictures and videos for the band. Even with all of that on mind, are we really ready for another Guitar Hero title? Didn’t World Tour just land?
