This game is also a great way for younger games to gain some insight about the full Metallica experience and history in one simple DVD. With more polish than the Aerosmith version and better designed gameplay tweaks over World Tour, Guitar Hero Metallica really is one of the best, if not the best, Guitar Hero to date. Fans have been begging for a Guitar Hero game like this ever since it was released on PS2 years ago. Not that the other games didn't generate that rock star feel, but this Metallica version truly ups the ante. Guitar Hero fan or non Guitar Hero fan, you really should play, or rather, experience this game".
