View Full Version : A Must buy, rent or pass ?

Im totally not sure wheter i'd gotta buy this one, rent/lend it or just ignore?

I mean Metallica totally put me off after their 'going to the big bucks' change of direction after the Freddy Mercury tribute concert where i was constantly confronted by sudden non-rock metallica 'fans' only coz i had some metallica patches on my jeans rock jacket in those days, just because of that tribute but i like the old songs...

Second, i totally dont like the Online achievements in GH:WT as i dont bother to buy a Live Gold just for 1 game, and im sure there will be online achievements again, as leaderboard scores 'only' for Gold.... but i like the older metallica songs...

I also think paying full price for an updated songlist with almost no new things in it (wow, the band as characters wtf?) is a bit over the top, i personally feel a price at about 70% of full price would be sufficient as its not like a totally new engine and all as with other game expansions... but then again... i like the old metallica songs...

What do you guys think/feel about this one... i think i leave it for now and concentrate on the games i currently have and try to max out the achievements i can score without a gold membership first... then maybe if someone sells it for less then 60 euro's i might try it.... (although i saw it a t play asia for 42 euro's... but dont have experience with that site, and dont like to drop my creditcard on every website that offers something cheap)

Well if you like a challenge, this will be the game for you.
I'm a huge Metallica fan, so I pre-ordered my copy. I think it'll be one of the better Guitar Heroes released.

a must buy...and a keeper for me this time...with aerosmith i played it for a while, got my 1000 gs and got rid of it...i don't see myself parting with this game. it's gonna be one of the best plastic guitar games ever.

A must buy in my opinion. I love Metallica and this game will most likely be one of the better GH games to come out since GH3.

If you love Metallica, buy it

If you like them sort of, rent it

If you hate Metallica, ignore it.

That's pretty much all there is to it.

It's a must buy for all GH fans because these songs look waayyyyyy better than Aerosmiths, a lot better too from the demo.

Meh, I like Metallica, but I hate playing they're songs just because of their difficulty, that's what makes it a rent for me.

This is the best one by far. Even hard is working me over bad, and I can usually play through hard pretty well. I have had the game for a week now, and I am only 1/2 way through the hard career. Yeah, thats right I have the actual game. Found it at target last week.

If your a GH fan or a Metallica fan I think its a must buy, but if you just enjoy the games or the band a little than maybe just rent it. From what I've seen on the demo this game rocks though!
