Summary: I'm a GH/RB fan, and hesitated a little before buying it, once i am no not a VH fan. But it turned to be one excellent game, cos Eddie's solos are really fun to play. Pros: - good price - very fun guitar playing (and drums to a lesser extent) - "space truckin" and "painkiller" kick azz - got to know better this great band - it's guitar hero!
Summary: From the intro of Panama to the end of the blazing hot Eruption Guitar Hero Van Halen is one of the best. The creators of Guitar Hero have picked the absolute best David Lee Roth Van Halen songs. Also they picked pretty good guest artists like Deep Purple, Billy Idol, Judas Priest, Foo Fighters, and Queens of the Stone Age. The sort of bad part is that there is no DLC, Light Up the Sky, and Little Dreamer.
Great game (for VH fans) but not worth full retail

Summary: I got a great deal on my copy on ebay and love it for that fact. I have been an RockBand fanatic from the get-go and actually bought Guitar Hero: World Tour with very dissappointing results. However, THIS game was something I really wanted to have. With the RockBand / GH cross compatibility with equipment, made this purchase an easy one and something that was cheap enough not to require an entire switchover to a whole other game franchise and their gear.
Summary: This guitar hero is a the one that came out after GH5. GH5, in my eyes, were good songs but was not all that difficult to beat. Val Halen has harder songs and makes it a little more challenging, however, that's what makes the game more interesting
