I'm just going to ignore that it's a Guitar Hero Game.
Granted I failed For whom the Bell Tolls as soon as it started raining Hammer Ons (it's the first song in Career mode)
The song list is killer, the characters aren't cartoony at all. the Interface is PURE METALLICA and most importantly
IT FUCKING HAS MASTER OF PUPPETS!!!!!!!!!
there's no way I'll be able to clear Career mode (I play on Hard and In this game Hard= Rock Band's Expert) But my time with it so far has been pure balls on METAL. Plus with all the game muisc that's on GH TUNES (good castlevania, Sonic and F Zero covers) it's greatness. Maybe it's just the Metallica Fan in me talking but this is by and far the best Guitar Hero yet.
But then again I'm a HUGE METALLICA FAN.......
But I don't kid my self, Reload, (3 good songs) and St Anger (great if you like the sound of banging trash Cans) are terrible Albums.
And Unless Guitar Hero Led Zeppelin is made this is still my last Guitar Hero ever.
