Editorial Review

Metallica and Guitar Hero fans rejoice: Guitar Hero: Metallica has landed for Xbox 360. Like Guitar Hero: Aerosmith before it, Guitar Hero: Metallica will focus on the career and songs of Metallica. With 28 Metallica songs and 21 other songs that influenced the band, fans will love playing guitars, drums, and singing vocals alongside Kirk Hammett, Lars Ulrich, James Hetfield, and Robert Trujillo.

The band looks incredibly life-like thanks to motion capture technology. .

In Expert Plus mode, you'll play double bass pedals like Lars Ulrich. .

Play gigs in famous real-life venues like The Forum. .

Rock out to your favorite Metallica tracks. .

Follow the Career of Metallica and Play as Your Own Upstart
Guitar Hero: Metallica is similar to Guitar Hero World Tour in that you play a full suite of instruments. When the game starts, you're the new band on the block with aspirations of opening for Metallica. The game goes back and forth between performances by Metallica and performances of songs that influenced Metallica by your band. The band was motion captured so you'll recognize their unique motions on screen and style of playing.

As you progress in the game, you'll start to unlock bonus features such as videos of old Metallica performances, backstage photos, and “Metallifacts,” which enables different trivia to show up while a song is playing, similar to VH1's Pop-Up Video.

Metallica Recordings from Original Masters and More Via Download
Guitar Hero: Metallica features 49 songs in total, 28 Metallica songs, and 21 songs that are favorites of the band and have influenced them. The Metallica songs are sourced from original masters so you'll have the best audio quality available. You'll also be able play downloadable content from their latest album, Death Magnetic.

Game Difficulty Goes from One All The Way Up to Eleven
Metallica exhibit technical prowess while performing, and this game goes from Beginner all the way to Expert Plus difficulty. Hardcore gamers will not be disappointed. You'll have to play guitars, drums, and sing, and in the “Expert Plus” difficulty, you'll have to plug in a second bass pedal for double bass pedal drum work.

Real-Life Venues
As you go on tour, you'll be playing venues small and large, and you might recognize some that you've been to. Famous venues that played a part in Metallica's career such as The Stone and the Hammersmith Odeon are included in the game and have been duplicated with great detail.

Grab Your Friends and Play Together
Multiplayer is part of what made Guitar Hero such a hit and it is no different here. Gather your friends and family, and jam Metallica tunes together. The game also features Metallica-specific power ups for competitive multiplayer. For example, “Fade to Black” will black out your opponent's notes, and “Trapped Under Ice” will freeze their whammy bar.

Create Your Own Music
Those familiar with Guitar Hero World Tour will welcome back the Music Studio, where you can create new music and then upload and share them through the GHTunes service. The Music Studio in Guitar Hero: Metallica gives you Metallica specific tones such as Hetfields' ESP Truckster guitar, as well as Metallica drum sounds. Songs made in Metallica and World Tour are compatible with each other through the GHTunes service.
