Guitar Hero: Van Halen Review

 

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 right....

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...

Guitar Hero: Van Halen Preview

 

Activision salutes hair metal with its Van Halen-themed music fest.

Whether or not this is great news for Van Halen fans remains to be seen. Metallica was significantly better than last year's Aerosmith, so we have high hopes for this new Guitar Hero. We'll find out whether Activision delivered this August.

It's perhaps not the best of signs when a video game is given away for free long before its original release. It's even worse when just a few months after that actual release, the game is already sitting in the bargain buckets. Guitar Hero: Van Halen...

47 tracks from Van Halen and guests ; Band and solo play ; Online modes, including custom tracks ; Rock facts

Genre has become tired ; WT engine pales in comparison to the GH5 engine ; Only covers the first part of Van Halen's career ; VH don't have the same worldwide appeal of Beatles / Metallica / Aerosmith

For a minimal price, Guitar Hero: Van Halen has the potential to provide around 5-20 hours of additional fun (depending on the number of instruments you have available and your affinity for the title band) but it ultimately does once again serve to...

Instead of putting in a bunch of non-Van Halen songs that are already on previous version of Guitar Hero for "filler", they should have included more Van Halen ! This always drives me crazy. If I wanted filler I would have bought the generic Guitar...

Playing only Van Halen songs pre Sammy Hagar ? Bummer

I’m in a grumpy mood and I need something to pick on. Kororinpa started my grumpy mood so therefore, it shall be what I pick on. Let me start this review off with a few quotes: I believe it was Bob Dylan that wrote the lyric, “Lay Kororinpa ...

There was like one or two alright songs in the game

Can't even get a simple rolling game right. Nothing about this game was done right
