Arnold Katayev: "Since I covered most of the game's offerings in sound earlier on, it's time for the conclusion, and it's a simple one. Guitar Hero: Metallica is the best damn Guitar Hero game ever. Not only does it boast a collection of Metallica tracks, but also a collection of other amazing bands. Unlike GH: Aerosmith, GH: Metallica is non-stop excitement at all times, powered by a menacing soundtrack that simply never quits. The addition of a double bass pedal, as well as modes carried over from World Tour, and even the Drum Over mode are all great touches, not to mention the extras such as all of the Metallifacts, the archived footage, and so forth. There is simply nothing left to say other than: this game is absolutely incredible."
