Guitar Hero is only getting better.

I had to laugh the other day as I came across some video footage of Connor during last Christmas when he spotted one of those "music" games on demo at our local video game store. He was dancing his little heart out in the middle of the store. I think it was really then when it hit me why Guitar Hero was really so popular. Music is universal, no matter if your one or eighty everyone can identify and I think we have all at least once had at least a daydream of being a famous musician. I grew up with friends that were in the industry and honestly I can tell you with 100% honesty that I really have no desire to become famous, sure I love recognition for what I do as much as anyone else, but fame has no appeal. Regardless though I still wish I could play an electric guitar and Guitar Hero, well, makes that at least somewhat a reality for me.

Guitar Hero's newest game, Guitar Hero Metallica, is hands down my favorite Guitar Hero to date. If you have played any other Guitar Hero games the game play format has not really changed enough to comment on. Honestly if anything this is in my opinion the most challenging Guitar Hero yet, so if your a seasoned player you'll enjoy the slightly different progression on leveling. Otherwise the game works basically the same. What has changed is the amazing soundtrack which by far if you ask me floors all the previous versions. With a huge selection of Metallica songs to pick from ranging across the entire lifespan of the band your bound to find something you love and there is a cool selection of songs from other bands that I absolutely love including : Alice in Chains, Judas Priest, Queen, Slayer, Suicidal Tendencies, and even Lynard Skynard gets a cameo. Heh, sorry had to throw that last band out there as I do live in Alabama after all.

Regardless if this is your first Guitar Hero experience or just an extension of the game for you. Its really hard to resist Metallica, I can honestly say that the whole epic nature of the band itself lends itself perfectly to the game. Really I think my only complaint at all is it really makes you work, some of the previous versions of the game were almost too easy and this one will really put up a challenge especially as you progress.

You can pick up your own copy of Guitar Hero Metallica on Amazon right now.
