Guitar Hero: Metallica

I’m not a hardcore gamer, but if there is one game I cant wait for this year, it’s Guitar Hero: Metallica. I’m sure I’m not the only one waiting for it. The good news is that it has an awesome track list. The bad news is that we wont be seeing it on 29 March 2009. Third world countries, pffft.

The Xbox and PS3 versions will get released first, with the PS2 and Wii versions to follow a few months later. Which means I have a few months left to get a PS3 because I dont think I can wait for the PS2 or Wii versions!

When I bought Legends of Rock, I was slightly disappointed that I couldnt download additional content (PS2) and was considering swapping it for a Wii version. I’m glad I didnt follow through on that decision because if I’m getting a PS3, I wont have compatibility issues.

Back to these metal giants, who rightly deserve their own expansion, have revealed what the track list is gonna look like on

    I notice that nowhere does either Metallica or Activision specify whether the “other artist” songs are going to be played by Metallica or not. I’d assume not, but then some tracks – Stone Cold Crazy, Am I Evil and Turn the Page – have been covered by the ‘Tallicats in Garage Inc, so maybe they will cover them again here too….?

    Either way, who really cares, what a KICK ASS track listing! And look, only one track from that abortion otherwise known as St. Anger! Yeah!! Praise be to the metal gods!!

  • I dont think the Metallica covers will be featured. I like Turn the Page, I guess it doesnt matter who plays it, its gonna sound the same.

    I think we should have the GH night we spoke about after this gets realeased. Fun fun fun.

  • Oh yay, cool track list! Definitely getting this!

  • Im not a GH fan.. But i do know.. My copy of SINGSTAR BOLLYWOOD is en-route to my post box..

    *hmm must remember to link this page to my gaming blog*

  • Metallica’s lost it. Pre-black Album all the way, as far as the metallica I love and admire, is concerned.

    That said, their new one, death magnet is it, wasn’t so bad. I just wish the mixing was a little better and Lars didn’t sound like he was beating on trash cans.

  • Looks like lots of xbox fanatics here, I am a fan also and love to play games… my girlfriend says I play way too much, but man it’s so pleasant. I’ve been playing callofduty: mw2 and halo for months and can’t quit! What would you gamers recommend? Anyways, appears like a cool site, is this wordpress? I’ve created a couple pages myself and it’s not easy. Thanks for taking time to post this up.

  • Hi there. Yes, it is a WordPress site.
