This performance feels phoned in. Guitar Hero: Van Halen is about as bare-bones of a product that you can imagine. This is probably why it was offered for free to...

Great solos ; Solid track list

Poor presentation ; Cannot export songs ; Career mode is a joke ; Bands do not mesh together

Guitar Hero: Van Halen is about as bare-bones of a product that you can imagine. This is probably why it was offered for free to everyone who purchased Guitar Hero 5 a few months back. The latest band-specific GH game is certainly not for anyone who...

Guitar Hero: Van Halen

 

I will admit that, being under the age of 45, I've never been an avid fan of Van Halen. Their brand of sugar coated glam rock goodness served them well in the 1980s, but, while some of their hits have entered my consciousness, the band hasn?t exactly...

Guitar Hero: Van Halen serves as an ill-fitting tribute to a now fossilised band. Sloppy execution, poorly chosen tracks and a growing lack of public interest in both Van Halen and the music game genre make this a lackluster low point in the Guitar...

Jamie is, in fact, cryin'.

There is vintage Van Halen music to play

Everything else

In a world where The Beatles Rock Band exists, the paltry effort put into Guitar Hero: Van Halen is, quite simply, deplorable. If you�re going to devote the time, money, and effort to developing a band-themed game in this franchise�then do it...

Guitar Hero: Van Halen Review

 

So let's pretend you're Activision. You've released a Guitar Hero game based on Aerosmith, as a means of testing the waters to see how the fans would react to a product like that. Then you green-light a full-scale game that's dedicated to the biggest...

I was really excited about Guitar Hero: Van Halen, but all of that excitement washed away when I actually played it. Granted, the first 20 minutes with the game were a ton of fun, mostly because of the songs from Queen, Judas Priest, Queens of the...

Like an aging rock star who didn't know when to quit.

Anybody who picked up Guitar Hero 5 shortly after release had the chance to snag Guitar Hero Van Halen for free through a promotion. They got what they paid for. For everybody else that might be looking to Guitar Hero Van Halen in stores, stay away. No...
