Guitar Hero: Metallica Review

Guitar Hero: Metallica is a great music game, one that has a track list that almost seems like it was written expressly for the purpose of this title. A lot of care was put into the production to ensure that it is both true to the band and its music, while also offering fans cool insight into the group's on-goings. It certainly doesn't reinvent the wheel, but it's been a while since I've had this much fun with a music game. The only thing keeping me from scoring it higher is the fact that it doesn't support most of the Guitar Hero DLC. Other than that, it's a great experience that Metallica fans should run out and get.

IGN Ratings for Guitar Hero: Metallica (X360)
Rating Description
out of 10
8.0 Presentation
The included behind-the-scenes content is great, though the lack of DLC support is a big negative.
7.5 Graphics
The guys look very much like themselves, which is great. It's not the flashiest game out there, but it does the job well.
9.0 Sound
The set list here is killer. It's smaller than the yearly big releases, but it has the best bang-for-the-buck ratio.
9.0 Gameplay
There's not a whole lot of new stuff here, but the songs are extremely fun to play.
7.0 Lasting Appeal
The smaller-than-normal set list and lack of DLC support may not last you forever, but the included tracks are great for many plays.
