Guitar Hero: Metallica

Alright, how many of you guys played the demo and liked it?

I can honestly say it sucks, IMO. For one thing, no Cliff Burton.

I'm really miffed that Cliff isn't going to be in it.

Also, I've takenm a good look at the setlist, and I can say about half of the songs aren't by Metallica. There are 49 songs, and a grand total of 28 are Metallica songs. Among the "other artists" are Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bob Seger, Queen, and Foo Fighters. I don't want to play Alice in Chains, I want to play Metallica, dammit.

I will give Neversoft a pat on the back for not making all the songs the sucky ones from St. Anger. I still wish that they put in more songs from Master of Puppets or Kill 'em All, but it doesn't suck as much as it could.

You're thoughts?

This is the best example of how Activision milks every single one of their franchises for everything they are possibly worth and then some. In 2008 there were six Guitar Hero games released and in 2009 there are four currently announced. So sick of seeing more expansions and spinoffs of this series.

Unfortunately, people will buy it, cause it's Guitar Hero. It's sort of like what EA does to any of their sports series, Nintendo with Mario, as well as Square Enix and Final Fantasy: Create sequels, prequels, spin-offs and sub-series ad nauseam.

I hate playing Metallica songs, so this is one installment I think I'll be skipping. With the lackluster showing of Guitar Hero: World Tour, I think Rock Band has definitely usurped Guitar Hero as the definitive fake music playing game.




have a suggestion for the lf poll? pm me

I hate Guitar Hero and Rock Band... makes little kids think they know what good music is, and makes them think that they are Rock Stars.

I have a buddy who I was teaching guitar to... but then he bought Rock Band.

On a related note that's too bad Cliff isn't featured in the game...then again, maybe Metallica doesn't want to turn Cliff into a corporate whore while he's dead.

To be honest, I've lost a lot of my interest in Guitar Hero and Rock Band games. For the longest time, I worked hard to get to where I could play just about everything on expert, and now it just feels like the same thing over and over again. I still play sometimes, it's just not the same.

At this point, I'd rather use the money I'd use to buy one of these games to buy and learn how to play an actual guitar.

Don't you dare ever say you don't want to play Alice in Chains, AIC are awesome

Although Metallica is my favourite band, I doubt I'll get this, never was a fan of this whole Guitar Hero fad, I'll just stick to my real guitar thank you very much.

I would say the same thing, but it is a crappy song that sounds like something from Hootie and the Blowfish.

Metallica was in Austin yesterday promoting this game. If I had had a SXSW badge I'd have gone and watched them...

I don't like any of those songs save 'Enter Sandman', so I'm pretty sure I'm not getting this.

It was acoustic, which kills the heavy metal atmosphere. And the only Hootie song I've actually listened to is acoustic, so bad call on my part.

There are a few good songs... no Cliff... PHAIL
Then again, maybe it's a good thing he's not on there... rolling in his grave comes to mind

Don't even think for a second that William Duvall is as good as Staley was.

Note the last part in my post.

And besides, he may not have done that good in that clip, but he is absolutely, insanely awesome, lets just agree Rob Halford is the ultimate metal vocalist

Ever since playing guitar hero 3 got me into playing real guitar i havent bothered with these games... I actually havent done much besides playing my kramer for the last 3 months, and i am actually getting the hang of it. I got a pirated guitar pro from a friend, who got it from his bass teacher who got it from his friend who downloaded it from pirate bay and im learning some actually difficult songs like stuff by ensiferum now.


Saivo´s New demo, A Cruel Northern Land is out! Listen to it on our mikseri.net bandpage.

Not a big fan of speed metal, but very cool.

OT: I recently saw some demos of the game being played, will drums and vocals be an option in the game?

I'm not a huge fan of Metallica, myself. And I don't really care to play them on GH.

Though, I did play the demo. Albeit, I played Queen and Alice In Chains. Both were fun to play. Since I'm still waiting for my xbox to be sent back to me and I still don't have GH, I won't be buying it. But, my buddy will get it and I'll probably playing my fair share of it.

The more metal I can play, the better.
