  1. It's a great package for fans of the band and die-hard fans of the Guitar Hero series starved for new music.
  2. Ultimately, if you like Metallica (a lot), and if you like the standard Guitar Hero gameplay formula, then this game is well worth the price of admission. If you don’t meet both those criteria, however, you really should move on.

    its not my favorite video game in the Guitar Hero series, but 260 songs are way easier to beat in this one.

The song selection is awesome, both the Metallica songs and not, and I'm glad thay went back to the GH I-III style career, which I prefer. Pick this up soon. Full Review »
