This is an easy recommendation for anybody who has even a casual interest in Metallica. The songs themselves are fun enough to warrant the price of admission, despite their limited number. The new "Expert +" difficulty level is a real challenge, but the feeling you get when you pass your first song is very rewarding. The game's biggest flaws are its lack of originality, lack of downloadable content and lack of compatibility with the competition's instruments. If you own an entire Guitar Hero band kit, this game comes highly recommended. If you went with the Rock Band drum set, then you might want to reconsider before putting down your money.
