Summary: This is a fun one, and you'll probably be too busy following the on screen notes to pay much attention to the antiquated David Lee Roth in the background waving and pretending he loves Eddie's fretboard finger tapping. I like all the VH songs its got on it.
Summary: This game is one fun rocking game, once you get to appreciate it. All the Van Halen songs are good, but some guest acts could have of been changed in this game. The game deserved better. Not a must own guitar hero, but still good. I'm a huge fan, so there's my exception. Recommended for fans who want more songs to play or Van Halen fans.
Summary: As a group, Van Halen is one of the more popular rock bands to grace the 20th century with it's presence. This game not only does the band justice, but features songs by other bands whose songs are fast paced, fun to play, and addicting. Play this game to live the legendary reign of a classic, or to discover a new favorite.
Summary: When I pop in a Band-Centric Guitar Hero game, I expect to be treated to a visual and musical time capsule full of all of the band’s definitive moments, a decent collection of their songs spanning their career, and a treasure chest of little known facts, rare memorabilia, and well, some evidence that the band itself was involved with the game. After bringing Guitar Hero: Van Halen to a close, I don’t see my criteria met.
Summary: When it has come down to Guitar Hero: Van Halen, it honestly isn't a very strong game. But, that doesn't honestly mean there isn't something for everyone for a enduring Van Halen fan. There are those who just a simple way to show it. This faceplate for the hard core Van Halen fan is great for the Guitar Hero guitar controller for the Nintendo Wii. It is easy to fit on and is fun to jam with.
Summary: This game has the classic Van Halen songs you hoped for, if you're an old rocker like me, with graciously zero Sammy Hagar inclusions. It also has a slew of "guest artist" tracks which are varied and well chosen, mostly also from the 80s. But don't expect the Original 4 to be present on the Guitar Hero concert stage: David Lee Roth; Eddie and Alex Van Halen; Michael Anthony. Remember, head banger, this is a new century.
Summary: Yes, the goings on in the Van Halen camp are childish, ego-driven fiascos of embarrassment. The antics of Eddie Van Halen and David Lee Roth are well-publicized, and Michael Anthony is the latest victim of Eddie's ego. This, unfortunately carries into this Guitar Hero game with the bass players ommission. He is insultingly replaced with Eddie's son Wolfgang, who I have no problem with...he seems like a good dude..
