Guitar Hero: Metallica, Gardening Mama, and Major Minor
Keep up-to-date with all the latest video game releases! Kidzworld has all the latest games to keep watch for. This week, we preview Guitar Hero: Metallica, Gardening Mama, and Major Minor's Majestic March.
You Thought One Bass Pedal Was Hard...Guitar Hero: Metallica casts you as a member of the opening band for Metallica on a tour, as you play some of the toughest Guitar Hero songs yet. This game adds a new Extreme+ difficulty for drummers, which forces them to use a second bass pedal, as Lars Ulrich did in real life. The game uses all the instruments from Guitar Hero World Tour, and also keeps the music creation mode that made World Tour very interesting for the most musical of players. Not every song is Metallica, though, much like Guitar Hero: Aerosmith. You also have Thin Lizzy, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Judas Priest, and even re-recorded versions of Motorhead songs. If you're one of the two people who thought Guitar Hero III was too easy, then this is definitely for you. Thankfully, the rest of us still have our less than Extreme+ difficulty levels.
Put Away the Pots, Bring Out the Pots
After the runaway success of Cooking Mama, Mama is back in the new Gardening Mama game for the Nintendo DS. Similar to Cooking Mama, this game involves a series of touch-screen minigames that allow you to make your own garden. The products of your garden can then be traded with your friends, which is a nice addition. If you're a fan of Cooking Mama, then this one is a no-brainer, as you're not going to get this stylus-scratchin' gardening action anywhere else.
NanaOn-Sha Lets You Master the March
From the makers of PaRappa the Rapper and Umjammer Lammy comes another awesome rhythm game, Major Minor's Majestic March, coming on the last day of March for the Wii. If you've played PaRappa, you know how catchy and cute the game can be. PaRappa was the first popular rhythm game ever, and it laid the groundwork for Guitar Hero today. This game casts you as an aspiring drum major getting together band members for a marching band. The music sounds typically great and the graphics keep the Rodney Greenblat designs that are a major part of the game's charm.
