Excerpt: One of two things need to happen to these themed discs – either they need to be priced cheaper, similar to a SingStar disc, or they need to offer a little more value than a bunch of songs, some new characters which are supposed to resemble the band, and some random pieces of information about said band that you only get to see if you “watch” a song from beginning to end.
Conclusion: Guitar Hero itself is still a fiendishly playable game, and the note charts here are of a high standard (this is one area in which the franchise has been steadily improving following Harmonix’s departure). But the central problem with Activision’s latest isn’t so much that music games are past the point of saturation, that familiarity has bred boredom (though there is that as well); it’s that Guitar Hero: Van Halen would fare better were it a budget release, or a modest...
Conclusion: What a terrible, raging piece of crap this game is. Maybe the band was uncooperative in releasing info about themselves. Maybe it was impossible to get the rights to make this a DLC offering. It doesn't matter. This game on disc shouldn't exist. Period.
Conclusion: De efterhånden lidt ældre originale Van Halen medlemmer bevæger sig lidt spøjst på scenen, er det gigt eller måske bare en bivirkning af at blive smidt ind i endnu et band-specifikt Guitar Hero spil? Deres ansigtsudtryk er, hvad jeg ville forvente fra en robot, der lige har opnået menneskelig intelligens; forvirret, men med de letgenkendelige tegn af tandhjul og hydraulik bag plastic-ansigtet.
Pros: Nogle underholdende sange
Cons: Ingen godbidder for Van Halen-fans, Prisen. Animationer og grafik er forældet.
