Guitar Hero: Metallica is a video game in the multiplayer and the single player modes, created for the Xbox 360, Playstation 2, Wii and Playstation 3. Neversoft developed this game for the Xbox 360 and the PS3 while Budcat Creations developed it for the Wii and PS2. The game was released on March 29, 2009, and April 14, 2009 (PS2) in North America and on May 29, 2009, and May 27, 2009 in Europe and Australia respectively.
Guitar Hero: Metallica is a rhythm game in the Guitar series that allows players to mimic the playing of rock music with the use of instrument controllers as platforms. It uses the Guitar controller, microphone, gamepad, Wii remote and the drum controller as input devices. The player provides vocals, lead guitars, drums and bass guitars. To score, you need to complete a song successfully. Using the instruments, the player plays notes displayed onscreen as the music plays. It is a common mistake to miss notes. If you make too many errors, you fail and will not be able to score or advance to the next level.
If you are up for a challenge, Guitar Hero: Metallica fits that criterion because of its tricky game-play. Like World Tour, there are five difficulty levels in this version. The game also features an Expert mode specifically for drummers, which allows them to add a second bass drum level. Two guitar players can play the lead and bass guitar together; however, they cannot play the lead and the rhythm guitar simultaneously.
The underlying storyline revolves around a band that wants to follow in Metallica’s footsteps. Metallica allows them to be opening act during their tour. A player has to win a certain number of stars based on the performance of individual songs. When successful in getting these stars, you can proceed to the next song in the set. You can easily track your performance with the help of Star power meters that are next to each track onscreen. The venues in this game are all real, with the likes of Tushino Airfield in Moscow, The Stone Nightclub in San Francisco and the Hammersmith Odeon in London to mention a few.
