  • Guitar Hero: Metallica … Duplicate Songs

    Posted on March 5th, 2009 Shawn No comments

    We are just weeks away from the release of Guitar Hero: Metallica.  Many people are excited about this, since it brings in lot’s of heavy songs, plus adds an expert-plus mode (with double-bass drum) for drummers.  But, let’s look at the game for the value.

    Figure it will cost you $50 – $60.  Guitar Hero: Metallica features 49 songs, 28 being by Metallica, and the other 21 songs being bands that are “their personal favorites and influences from over the years”.  So, at more than $1.00 per song…each track is about the price of 1/2 a song from DLC.

    As a concern with all these music games, how many duplicate songs are there?  Unfortunately, I’m afraid there are more dupes than I’d like.  Let’s take a look at the set list and mark the duplicates.

    • “All Nightmare Long” – Metallica
    • “Battery” – Metallica – Rock Band 2
    • “Broken Beat & Scarred” – Metallica
    • “Creeping Death” – Metallica

    Other Artists

    • “Albatross” – Corrosion of Conformity
    • “Am I Evil?” – Diamond Head
    • “Stacked Actors” – Foo Fighters
    • “Hell Bent For Leather” – Judas Priest
    • “Demon Cleaner” – Kyuss
    • “Tuesdays Gone” – Lynyrd Skynyrd
    • “Beautiful Mourning” – Machine Head
    • “Blood And Thunder” – Mastodon
    • “Evil” – Mercyful Fate
    • “Armed and Ready” – Michael Schenker Group
    • “Ace of Spades” – Motorhead – Rock Band 2
    • “Stone Cold Crazy” – Queen
    • “Mother of Mercy” – Samhain
    • “War Ensemble” – Slayer
    • “Mommy’s Little Monster” – Social Distortion
    • “War Inside My Head” – Suicidal Tendencies
    • “Toxicity” – System of a Down – Rock Band DLC
    • “Black River” – The Sword
    • “The Boys Are Back in Town” – Thin Lizzy – Rock Band DLC

    If I took it further and compared it to the older Guitar Hero library, there would be more dupes.  So, 44 original songs (not available for Rock Band 1, 2 or Guitar Hero World Tour).  Is this worth $50-60  to you?
