Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gets Boring in a Few Yes, I liked this game when I played career and everything, and then it got boring because all I could do was play some songs and nothing would happen. Then, for quick play, it was the same thing. At first, it's awesome and everything, but then it gets very boring in a few days. Music's great though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THIS is what Guitar Hero was made for!!!!!!!!! Metallica. That word alone has you reeling with thoughts of tharshing metal and amazing riffs, licks and solos. It's transition from real guitar to a plastic form is great fun. The songs are great, I would have liked more, but from what was chosen, it's a great setlist. The guest artist are cool and all, but I would have definately liked more Metallica. The gameplay is the same with all guitar heroes. Hit the corresponding colors on screen to the ones on the guitar, but you will miss a lot of notes because of how much fun your having, if you're a Metallica fan, like I am. The song selection is great, ranging from some of their oldies to a few more recent ones. It has a great song selection that can't leave you bored. The graphics are great for when this game came out. They look just like the members of the band and their likeness and movements are captured very well. This is a great game for a ny metal fan, and an amazing game for any Metallica fan. THe fast solos and great guitar are what guitar hero was made for. I played this game WAY too much for my own good. If you want a challenge, get this game and play it on expert and expert+ with drums. Good luck or good riddance. This may be a bit biased (just a little bit), but a 5 out of 5 in my book. Unbiased though, 4 out of 5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Guitar hero yet Best Guitar hero yet, but Metallica has been my favorite band since 1984 so I might be slightly biased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Guitar Hero Yet I have been a Metallica fan most of my life, and I thought not too long ago after GH:3 released was a Guitar Hero:Metallica because the song One was on GH:3. After they released Aerosmith, I thought, yes they could be making a Metallica or AC/DC because they made a band-exclusive GH. I saw Rockband AC/DC track packs and I was like, yes Metallica is for Guitar Hero. Onto my review,sorry for wasting your time, my fellow snowflakes. Guitar Hero: Metallica is the best guitar hero to come out, so far. The variety of songs is superb, from rock (Thin Lizzy) to Heavy Metal that blows out your eardrums (Slayer, Machine Head). It sucked that they didn't make any Guitar Hero exclusive instruments just for Metallica, something like a Metallica guitar, James' for example, his metal-plated gibson V. That would look pretty sweet for a guitar hero guitar. But there was that one drum addition, thank god. The double bass pedal is a good feature, plus the expert+ mode. I don't have drums or mic, but I really want them. Plus the difficulty of the songs on the guitar, so there's a good variety from people that can't really play good, to alright players, to guitar hero gods, (I'm one of them). Out of 5*'s, this one gets a 5 for sure. If you say it doesn't, I'm coming to your house, lol.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for GH, not really overall though Out of all of the band specific games that have and are slated for release, I thought that the Aerosmith game was going to be the best one, but unfortunately it came out first and they tweaked all the little things and came out with Metallica. The game is well crafted in a musical sense. The bands that they included in the game are fantastic when it comes to relating to Metallica and their influences etc, so for those of you who don't know a thing about music, that's why Bob Segar and the Silver Bullet Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd are in the game. That and Metallica did a fantastic cover of Turn the Page, which I'd hope you would know if you were a fan... But that's beside the point. The game is obviously solely about Metallica in their entirety when it comes to their career as the title kind of points out. The song selection is great from the band itself and the Expert+ was a nice change for some of us that have played drums before and don't like playing a dumbed down version. Granted it's much different to play Master of Puppets on this game than in real life as I found out haha. It's fun, but it is what it is, a virtually one-dimensional look into the career of one of the most famous bands in the world.
