Summary: I purchased guitar hero Van Halen from Amazon for $11.99. The game is straight up guitar hero so if you've played before you know what your getting. The Van Halen songs are really fun to play and sing and the way i look at it is for this price it's almost like getting Van Halen downloaded content for 12 bucks. The game play is fine, no Michael Anthony is not represented playing bass, Eddie's son is, yes that is a shame but i guess to them it is just business.
Summary: Thankfully, as part of the Guitar Hero 5 promotion, I got Guitar Hero Van Halen for free. Just my humble opinion, I'd be upset if I paid good money for this game. It's Guitar Hero, with Van Halen likenesses and songs. That's it. Don't get me wrong, I am a big VH fan, but I am also a Guitar Hero fan. And unlike prior GH band-exclusive versions (Metallica, Aerosmith) which seemed created as love-letters to their fans, there are virtually no extras here whatsoever.
Summary: It's getting to the point where I'm getting overloaded on Rock Band and Guitar Hero. Sure, it looks good, and the gameplay mechanic is intuitive, but GH:VH doesn't bring anything new to the table besides new playable songs and VH character models. I don't really care that only the current VH lineup was modeled (see the flamewars over Michael Anthony's absence in other reviews), but I was very disappointed that there is not a single Van Halen song from the Sammy Hagar...
Old Halen missing any music from the last 26 years

Summary: When I found out this game was out I bought immediately. Since I have been a Van Halen fan since the 70's I finally had a way to play guitar to all my favourite tracks. There lies the problem, this game is full of all the early stuff of Halen from 1984 and before. I can only guess there are some sort of licence restrictions or something. Basically they seem to have dragged out some not so good tracks to fill in the game. It's seriously missing the Hager touch.
Conclusion: The Van Halen songs are incredibly fun to play, but the rest of the game is pretty unimpressive. It's almost like the opposite of Guitar Hero 5, which had great presentation and game mechanics, but an awful setlist overall. Van Halen just look weird on stage, their animation is terrible. Especially Wolfgang Van Halen, who bears a strong resemblance to Winnie The Pooh.
Summary: Étant un gros fan de van halen et de guitar hero je me suis laisser tenter par ce GH van halen. Ayant pris le pack avec guitare qui ma foi est très jolie j'insère le jeu dans la xbox360 - Là pas de nouveautés le jeu se base sur la simplicité propre, un mode solo , un multi, une partie rapide , quelques options et le tour est jouer.
Pros: Les classique de VHa interpreter - Quelques morceaux de legende a jouer
Cons: Trop exclusif sur le debut de sa carriere - peu de modes de jeu
