I am a huge fan of Guitar Hero, so naturally I had to get this Metallica title. The best thing about it is that I grew up around the same time that Metallica first became popular, so I was really familiar with all the music. This has one of the best sets of songs I have ever seen on any of their previous titles, so it was a lot of fun to go through the song list at first.
Most of the songs are from Metallica, but there are a few from other bands. I like how you do not have to earn every song in a row like the other titles, you at least get to pick from a few songs before you earn another set. I do have to say that this was one of the harder Guitar Hero titles, so if you aren't that great in playing, I would recommend playing the tour on an easier setting so that you get used to it before you improve your skills.
The Metallica songs tend to be really long, so I highly recommend that you plan plenty of time to play this game, as the average song is about six minutes. We have brought this game out quite a bit when we have friends over, and it tends to go over quite well with everyone. If you are into this style of video game, I highly recommend that you check this one out. You will not be disappointed. The characters on the game even really resemble the Metallica band members!
