Overall: The Guitar Hero franchise has been a very successful chain of games best known for its uniqueness of using a guitar rather than a controller. From this game others have emerged such as Rock Band and Rock Revolution. Guitar Hero Metallica is the newest guitar hero game from the company. Its like a hybrid between Guitar Hero Aerosmith and Guitar Hero World Tour except it surrounds the band Metallica. Overall this game is just another Guitar Hero World Tour except for a few minor changes, new characters, and a lot of Metallica songs.
Gameplay: The gameplay is pretty much identical to the Guitar Hero World Tour game the only major difference in the instruments is the option of adding a second b@!%#*! pedal for the new difficulty for the drums expert+. As I said before the game is the same as GHWT; it has a b@!%#*! guitar, a lead guitar, a vocal part, and a drum part. Unfortunately there is no rhythm guitar part so there won't be any Hetfield and Hammet guitar tradeoffs, but if you look it at in total it is still fun for friends and solo because even if there is nothing different its still guitar hero. One last thing this is NOT a good game for people just starting guitar hero it is still possible, but this game is purely heavy metal so most of the songs are really fast, and really hardcore.
Graphics: The visuals are a whole lot better the graphics are better than before there are also some cool new features such as when you play the actual band because they made it with motion capture so that the characters actually do exactly what any member in Metallica would have done on stage such as hold a cymbal or fist pumps or whatever. There are new characters such as Lemmy from Moterhead and King Diamond from Mercy Fate. Overall the visual is very nice if you have ever seen a Metallica concert it looks very similar.
Sound: Audio wise... Well its Metallica. Half the songs are Metallica and they add the Death Magnetic pack if you bought it. The soundtrack is pretty much mostly Metallica from all their different albums even from their early days. There are also other heavy metal and hard rock bands that are in the game, but if you are going to play this game you better @!%#*! well like Metallica otherwise this won't be that great for you.
