They now have their very own game to mess around with that includes their favourite Metallica songs to go with many other related pictures and videos for the band. Even with all of that on mind, are we really ready for another Guitar Hero title? Didn't World Tour just land? And isn't Smash Hits about to come out as well? What about the all new GH5 promised later this year? Which brings us to the question: Is GH: Metallica a rip-off or is it something else on its own?"
