Summary: First let me reference that I am not a big VH fan, but do like a few of their songs. I really purchased this for the opening acts.. and I wish I hadn't. I should have listened to those reviewers who said you should save your money. Most of the songs are boring, and didn't get the point of the guitar solos (a bit lame). The few that I purchased this for are live recordings or somthing. This was not quite what I expected and I certainly glad I did not pay 30 bucks.
Summary: I love Van Halen. 5150 was literally the reason I got into music, literally changed my life. Sure, it's a little cheesy now, but as a teen that was the greatest music I had ever heard and launched me into music for life. I was psyched beyond belief when I heard GH VH was coming out.
Summary: I grew up loving Van Halen for all they were, so naturally, I should be ecstatic about a Guitar Hero Van Halen game, but alas, the end result is a big disappointment. Boasting generic looking venues and simply not enough material, Guitar Hero Van Halen features a decent enough helping of David Lee Roth-era tracks to play, as well as some of Eddie Van Halen's most memorable guitar solo work.
Summary: I got the "free" copy of GH: VH from the GH5 promo offer. The set-list itself is great, but a little short on VH songs. I'd rather have it all exclusively VH tunes (much like RB: The Beatles) instead of having other bands' music. I was let down that Foreigner's "Double Vision" was a remix version with their current singer instead of Lou Gramm (It even says "1978" onscreen). Is Mick Jones that hard up for people to accept his new singer?
