    Wait till this one is cheaper, do not spend full price.

    Activision and Neversoft have finally given Guitar Hero fans a game we have been crying for for a long time by following up their star treatments of Aerosmith and Metallica with a dedicated Van Halen ...

    This game feels more like an excellent track pack if anything else.

    Guitar Hero Van Halen is the latest guitar hero game. It is based on Van Halen, similar to Guitar Hero Aerosmith and Guitar Hero Metallica. It is much better than Guitar Hero Aerosmith, but not as goo...

    Van Halen is described as legendary but this game isn't but just simply fun.

    Van Halen is known for a lot of things like Eddie Van Halen's guitar technique, their usage of backup vocals and their #1 hit single "Jump". Guitar Hero is also known for a lot of things like usage of...

    What happened???

    Rated on March 31, 2010 by DYSTOPIAN_BITE

    Leave it to the good folks at Activision to pick up a perfectly lovely concept and crumple it in their greedy, masturbatory hands. I bashed Guitar Hero Aerosmith for my own selfish, biased reason...

    People, you should know how awesome Van Halen is!!!

    Van Halen: an awesome band. It is half American, half Dutch. And that's what I love from Van Halen: Dutch. 'Cause I'm self Dutch. But to be serious, they are making great music. From this band ther...

    Over so fast, not enough songs to be worth a full price.

    Rated on October 16, 2010 by uhateit

    This was a good game overall, I was surprised I didnt realize all the good songs Van Halen actually had. I was dissappointed that "Right Now" wasnt on the playlist tho. I really enjoyed the Blink-182 ...

    Subjectivity, not always a bad thing as this game might just be for you.

    Ah, Guitar Hero: Van Halen. Hailed by many as another attempt to milk a dying franchise, I plan to show you that it has more to offer than you might expect. Bear in mind though that, if you don't l...

    I feel like i'm the only person who owns this game? Rock Band-esque DLC on a disc, a MUST for Van Halen/Guitar Hero fans

    Rated on November 10, 2010 by CoolishBeanz

    GH: VH is yet ANOTHER spin-off of the series. It it worth it?

    Rated on April 22, 2012 by 12534554

    Let's face it, the amazing guitar playing of Eddie Van Halen would make dynamite material for a guitar hero game. Now, after god knows how long we VH fans have waited, we finally get GH: VH. It is wor...
