Metallica's influential music takes center stage this spring when Activision Publishing Inc.'s Guitar Hero Metallica takes music fans through the band's fabled library of songs, plus the music and musicians who influence them. When the house lights go down this spring, virtual rock stars across the globe will shred, drum and wail to an explosive set. PS3 list featuring over 45 tracks from Metallica's illustrious career and a wide variety of other legendary artists personally selected by the band, such as Queen, Foo Fighters, Bob Seger, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Slayer and Judas Priest.
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.

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.
