Guitar Hero: Metallica
A Couple of Guitar Hero: Metallica Trailers
Written By
View author's profile

There is no doubting that the Metallica signing by Activision was a pretty major coup for the industry powerhouse. Where else can you find one of the biggest names in rock and a franchise that is becoming as household as Coca Cola coming together? Well apart from Rock Band's upcoming Beatles' title ... nowhere, ha.

The title, due out the end of March in North America and in May in Europe, is set to be rocking living rooms worldwide and the two latest trailers from Activision give a brief inside look in to some of the songs in the game, a bit more of a look at the visuals and even a few brief glimpses of some note charts. Are you ready to rock?

Ugh the drummer still looks like an animated robot. It still looks stupid. But other than that, most of graphics look better than before :p

Sweet...without a doubt the heaviest set list. Although I doubt it would happen, I would like the tracks to be cross compatible. Although that is more of a dream than a reality. Nice list of achieves and seems like I am gonna be working on this game for awhile.

You should be able to if you have another pedal. RB2's kit comes with an expansion port for another pedal.

@9-Doesn't look like there will be. They might be released as DLC characters later on but for now, nothing :(

No ='(


But don't you feel a greater sense of ACHIEVEment when you can actually reach that goal? Either way, any expert achievement can be reached by FCing the song on medium with starpower.

Heres the deal. I disliked GH:Aerosmith, and hated World Tour. I do love Metallica, however, so I will be getting this.

But, that being said, if it disappoints, it'll be the last Guitar Hero title I buy -- I'll just start putting the money into Rock Band DLC instead.

after the trash that was world tour i keep telling myself that im not even going to play this game, but i know for a fact that im going to at least rent this just to see how bad/good it really is. also is it really true that they are including an expert plus mode? cause if that's true then this will make the over charted tracks of gh3 look like rock band which does seem like it could be fun.

I think that Expert+ is also on guitar... but that may be that new Guitar Hero: Greatest Hits one. That sounds so dumb to me- Expert+- wouldn't "Master" be a more apt name? Especially for this game.
