    Brilliant news. However…I bet you won’t be able to choose individual guitar tracks to play. I’d love to be given the choice of Dave, Janick or Adrian’s tracks.

    Many should be included, but personally I think Flight of Icarus and The Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner should have been in there for sure.

    My wife – who plays bass – is already quaking with fear at the idea of having to tackle some of Steve Harris’ basslines.

    If this is a police line up then It was definitely the second from the right who did it officer.

    Here’s hoping this is just testing the water for a full game.
    Although why they’d need to be sure people might want The Irons is mentalness.

    Possibly the best DLC yet. Fantastic.

    Not that I give a shade of a shit about plastic guitar peripheral based gaming, but no set of Maiden tracks is complete without The Evil That Men Do.

    After Guitar Hero: Metallica (which is enormous fun) I am actually hoping for an full-on Iron Maiden version.

    I’d rather Rock Band did Maiden than Guitar Hero, Harmonix is much better at note charting.

    No argument there Harry, although I kind of prefer GH instruments to RB and I didn’t have any problems with note charting in GH:M so far.

    Very cool, though there are a few favorites I would have liked added that arent on the list.
