Guitar Hero: Metallica
Guitar Hero: Metallica Confirmed for Q1 2009
Written By
View author's profile
It seems that the cash cow that is Activision just can't stop churning out all these new Guitar Hero titles. Gamespot reported that in one of Activision's recent SEC filings, the company mentioned that they intend to release Guitar Hero: Metallica in the 1st quarter of 2009.
The report stated that "In fiscal 2009, we plan to publish Guitar Hero: On Tour for the NDS; Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, Guitar Hero: Metallica, and Guitar Hero IV across multiple platforms".
So if Guitar Hero: Aerosmith and Guitar Hero: World Tour didn't satisfy your musical gaming needs, then surely Guitar Hero: Metallica will. Great news for Metallica fans worldwide but bad news for the wallet.
I can't quite shake the feeling that the frequency of these Guitar Hero titles is seriously going to affect the quality and improvements of the new titles. Similar engine with new songs? Seems like a bit of a cash in to me.

what the fuck? Just give out some damn DLC so people can pick what they want. I don't care who sells more of what this is just more evidence that Rock Band is the smarter game as far as player-friendly goes.

Sounds good..Yes they are churning out Guitar Hero games left and right seems like.. but we are buying them so why complain. I like Rock Band but it's alot easier than Guitar Hero is and I liek how Guitar hero has achievements for doing more htan jsu tplaying through on differant levels. I will be picking up Aerosmith, World TOur and Metallica.

WTF, seriously. Definitely a rental once again just like Aerosmith.

How about confirming a bunch of Metallica for GH: World Tour, at least that way we can play different instruments.

Still waiting on that "tons of Metallica" for Rock Band as well. 4 songs FTL.

Eww. I love the Black album and MoP, but after I buy Aerosmith and 4, I really don't wanna have to deal with another GH game.

They're choosing the right bands, but they really suck at seeing how this affects the consumer.

Wow, Metallica is garbage.

Songs by Aerosmith and Metallica are the types of songs that I find the most boring to play on GH. So having them waste their time developing games dedicated to those boring, boring bands just sucks because they could spend that time making games that won't get boring to listen to/play after half a tier. Hell, even if they made a game dedicated to a band I did like I would get sick of it.

Harmonix needs to release a crapload of Aerosmith songs 2 weeks before GH:A and a crapload of Metallica songs 2 weeks before GH:M to make Rock Band the more valued choice. I'm not spending $350 on GH4 (oh sorry, GH: Gay Tour) and a stupid ploy metallica game to make more money.

Fuck you, Activision.

If you don't want a GH: Metallica, you're not a METALLICA fan. I'm a GH fan, but I don't want this game because I don't like Metallica. Your comment makes no sense at all.

That was weird sorry for double comment but it posted blank for some reason. Anyway, finally a game that can shut up all the annoying "more metal for rhythm games" idiots I've been arguing with on different forums for the past couple of years. I'll be playing Rock Band (the one that gives us new songs without having to buy a new game).

I know people like to complain about the new games and that we arent getting any real DLC for the current ones. But this is kinda a better deal. Why spend $6.25 for a bunch of 3 song track packs when you can get 40-50+ songs on a disc for $60? You get to pick and choose wtih dlc yeah, but with a new game also comes new graphics and interface, maybe new features, title specific DLC.

This is ridiculous. I don't know how people can rationalize buying the GH games anymore. Activision is treating their fans like crap, and playing you all for fools.

GH is quickly becoming an overmilked franchise, right up there with The Sims, Mario spinoffs, etc.

^The thing is, Mario spin-offs aren't half-assed, they're actually totally different games, and they're usually very good games. For these releases, Activision is just being stupid and charging 60 dollars for a game that should be 40 at most. Aerosmith is one of my fave bands, but I'm not buying Aerosmith until the price drops and I can get it used for 40.

So, if this made your life.. you should re-evaluate your life. Activision has been trying to screw over the consumer as much as possible ever since they took over the series. Axe ads in GH3? A blatent rip-off of Rock Band? A game for cell phones and the DS? And now, half assed games that will screw over even the biggest fans of bands because it's a whole game as opposed to DLC? Activision raped the series the second it put it's grubby little hands into it.

Go back to making shitty Tony Hawk games.

I will most likely get the DS game when it comes out, I just like the idea of having a GH game to play on lunch at work. Now that I know they're planning on milking customers for as much as they can without putting in the effort to really make major improvements to gameplay, I won't be getting any of the Aerosmith, Metallica (and whoever else is to come EVEN if it's Pantera).

I agree with most others, just release DLC. Or don't they know what that means?

people say it should be dlc but lets do the match you get a pack of 3 songs for 6.25 right. okay that comes out to about 2.08 a song. Now this game disc should have at least 40 songs and at 60 dollars that would be 1.50 for each song case closed its better to come out with a completely knew disc so eat that whiners and metallica rocks plus it will likely have more than 40 songs

Metallica is awesome and all but I think they are just sucking the life out of Guitar Hero. They should have just made this one and only this, forget Aerosmith in my opinion. What's next Guitar Hero: Taking Back Sunday... I'll kill myself.

I don't think they should be spitting out Guitar Hero titles at a very fast rate, because like Webb said, quality will suffer. I will be buying this though for my love of Metallica. It would be better if they had DLC, but as long as i get Master Of Puppets, Enter Sandman, For Whom The Bell Toll, and Fade To Black, I'm quite happy.

ive been holding off buying GH for ages, and to be honest this hasnt made me change my mind, i like metallica and abit of aerosmith, but im going to want a bit more variaty in the songs.
so im still going to have to wait until GH 4 comes out to see whether its better (and cheaper) than rockband.

All these different versions of guitar hero are going to get pricey fast.

Could they not do an expansion pack or something for each one? They will all follow the same layout in the game only the characters and songs will differ.

Also release like the custom guitar seperate each time in case people want to buy these?

Wow, now while I do like some of Metallica's music, this is obviously just Activision trying to milk the fans. I don't think I'll be getting any more GH games past three, especially since World Tour is basically Rock Band with a different drum set.

I agree with the quality concerns. GH 80's was a huge disappointment. I think the quality bar for these new games will be established when Aerosmith comes out. If it's good, I'm definitely in for Metallica.

Will people still stop whining? Jesus christ!

As 2 people have already stated it is basically cheaper to buy a brand new game insteas of downloadable content, so stop whining about that already. I agree the titles should be at a reduced price but meh, Activision knows we'll still pay full price for these "standard" games but oh well, that's life.

I love gaining achievements so the more GH games for me the better. Won't buy them at full price because Rock Band is good enough for now, shall wait until they drop down in price and purchase them second hand.

News I wanted to hear =D

I might skip GH4 and go straight onto this even if it doesn't have drums on it, if it does then that is brilliant. Although I'm still waiting to see how they will screw it all up, like having only Enter Sandman and no other Metallica songs.

Hell, it might even have Vulturus on it =o
