Guitar Hero: Metallica

Game Boyz
28 July 2009
  • Excerpt: I am truly amazed how far the Guitar Hero franchise has come along. I admit that I was an early naysayer who believed that the game would never fly. The whole concept of playing a plastic guitar seemed goofy and I could not fathom grown adults doing such. Boy was I wrong. The Guitar Hero franchise is everywhere; even available on the DS. Activision has also released band-centric Guitar Hero games.

Heavy metal music with edgy lyrics comes to rhythm sim.

Common Sense Media
23 June 2009
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this is a sequel to the very popular Guitar Hero game. While some of the lyrics might raise an eyebrow here and there -- with references to sex, drugs, and violence -- it's certainly tame compared to other T-rated games.

Guitar Hero Metallica (Wii) Review

Vooks
29 May 2009
  • Excerpt: Guitar Hero is without a doubt one of the fastest growing and increasingly popular gaming franchises available on the market today. In just a few short years, Guitar Hero has grown from a novel rhythm based game to the cult social phenomenon it is today. It took me a couple of years before I finally jumped on board the Guitar Hero hype train, but once on-board, I have never looked back.

GUITAR HERO: Metallica Nintendo Wii Review

Collider
28 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Nestled in the top 10 of Guitar World’s 100 Greatest Guitar Solos, it was no surprise when Metallica’s “One” slipped onto the set list of Guitar Hero 3 and quickly became a fan favourite. After that, it was only a matter of time before we got more hardcore, finger-bleeding guitar action. Thankfully, Guitar Hero: Metallica improves on the mediocre Aerosmith installation and shows how good a band-centric game can be.

  • Pros: Awesome for Metallica fans, New interface changes are great, The bonus materials are interesting
  • Cons: No downloadable content, Nothing special for people who don't listen to Metallica, Song selection revolves around one genre, with a few a exceptions, Songs not transferable to World Tour

27 January 2009
  • Excerpt: Metallica are one of the biggest rock bands on the globe and are basically an institution in the USA. Their hordes of fans have been clamoring for a Metallica Guitar Hero for the last year. Their wish has come true because the title ships in a couple of months. We were asked along to Activision to sample the head banging delights with the newest edition to the Guitar Hero franchise.

Guitar Hero: Metallica, Review

WiiTalk
2 June 2009
  • Excerpt: Format: Wii Price: Game alone - £35, with guitar - £75. Wi-Fi: Yes Players: 1-4 Age: 12+ Developer: Activision The legendary metal band Metallica, and the great concept of a Guitar Hero game makes it a must buy, yes? Well, no. It’s not a fantastic game. Despite the real metal feel to this game, and being a metal music fan myself, it’s not one that should perhaps be on your shopping list, but with that said, it’s far better than the first Guitar Hero band game; ‘Guitar...

Expert Review

Official Nintendo Magazine
2 June 2009
  • Excerpt: Let's face facts. Guitar Hero: Aerosmith was a decent attempt at producing a band-specific Guitar Hero spin-off, but it was lacking in a lot of features. With a paltry number of songs compared to regular Guitar Hero games and not much to get stuck into after the main career mode was completed, it's fair to say it was a bit lacking in terms of content. Plus it had Aerosmith in it.
