Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Buy For Metallica Fans or any Rock fan! I loved all of the other Guitar Hero games and I was so hyped when I heard that there was going to be a game that was just Metallica. One of my favorite being based on one of my favorite bands, what could be better? This game has nearly all of their best songs and the note charts are great. I have only played on guitar because that is what I'm in to, but I have played as a band with friends and it's a blast. Playing online is super fun too. Going head to head with another person online is always exciting. Anyways, to some it all up, great game and go out and buy it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Way Cool! I would not offhand consider myself a Metallica buff but, this game is awesome! They have all the really classic songs on here: Battery, Fade To Black, For Whom The Bell Tolls, Disposable Heroes, and more. Couple that with great guest acts like Queen, Foo Fighters, Lynyrd Skynyrd...well, you get the idea. The songs are just as epic as you would expect so, be prepared to strain your arms. They have a lot of cool extra stuff like, live clips, song facts, Metallica logo gallery, and more. Also, of all the band-themed Guitar Hero games, this is the most realistic one. I really mistook it for a live concert, at first...and I missed 10 notes, because of it! The only reason this game does not deserve a 10, is that it doesn't have "Ride The Lightning". It's not even available as DLC =(

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for those who enjoy this kind of music This is by far the hardest Guitar Hero which is one of the reasons this is a great game. It will take multiple trys to complete most songs, and you are not repeating the same notes over and over again. The only problem with this game is if you don't like metal music or Metallica, you'd be better off without this game. But for others, thats no problem. This is the right Guitar Hero if you enjoy that kind of music!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from YES I love Metallica as a band and when i heard this was going to come out, i freaked out and preordered it. I went to midnight release and got the game. It was a dream come true. I coundn't believe I had been playing Guitar Hero : Metallica. I'm not saying this because I love Metallica, but this was one of the best Guitar Heroes. They have Lars's facial expressions, Rob's signature windmill in Seek and Destroy, Kirk's expressions, and James's expressions. They are all perfectly done with the Mo-Cap [Motion Capture]. If you play or get this game, you will see what I mean.
