This game and band Rocks

on 4/4/2013

This Guitar Hero game is by far my favorite one, great game play, every song has its own unique style and flare from the digital band themselves. You do not have to play through the entire career mode to quick-play any song you want. However customizing your rocker is not as fun considering 85% of the songs that are fun to play are Metallica and u always have to play as the band. I rarely see my rocker at all. Read More

When Guitar Hero first came out, it was exactly what the title indicated - a game for guitar. Slowly but surely, the series devolved into a pathetic mimic of Rock Band and most of the sequels, band series, and add-ons became mere moneymaking schemes. GH: Metallica is different. Having either selected or written the songs in the game, Metallica has given fans of the first two GH games something to cheer about. The songs are difficult and the tunes are heavy, with every song presenting a head-banging challenge for metalheads and newbies alike. You won't find that top-40 hit your little sister likes to sing, but if you're truly a Guitar Hero fanatic this will be the game for you. It's a no-frills game whose value is in its gameplay, which is a refreshing change from the "glitz" of the newer, less appealing renditions. Read More
