I have both the PS3 and PS2 versions of this game. The only differences I can see or feel is the slight drop in graphics. And I mean slight! I loved this on the PS3, and this PS2 version plays just as well. Awesome music choices, great PS2 graphics, if you are a VH fan like me you will not be disappointed

Worthy addition to anyone's GH collection and a must have for PS2 GH fans.

I ended up getting this game free with the Guitar Hero 5 deal as many others did. I understand the acrimony between the group and Sammy Hagar but the sad reality is that the newest VH song on the game is from 1984 (the year and album). This really cuts short the amount of songs that COULD have been represented. It would have been nice to see both lineups of the band get equal representation - especially since I have been dying to play "Humans Being" on GH. Once again, the pettiness and drama between current and former VH members screws the fans and we don't get the best product that we could have. They could have at least given us some live songs, demos, or new tracks to spice the game up a little bit. The extra acts are a little confusing, albeit some of the songs, particularly Judas Priest's "Painkiller" and Queen's "I Want It All" are very enjoyable but there's not much from VH's contemporaries. The presentation is lacking - the group doesn't show much life on the game except for when they go 'retro'. I wish the whole game was playable as retro Halen but alas this is not so. Also, the charting on medium mode is terrible. I am usually a strict medium player but I have to play Hard on this game to even get a challenge - the songs were too easy to play and betray the intricacy and skill of Eddie's playing. The only real songs that were enjoyable and difficult on medium were "Little Guitars" and the EVH solo songs. There also is NO storyline to speak of - in GH Aerosmith you worked your way up and got little anecdotes from band members as you progressed. This would have been much appreciated but no effort was put on that end. If not for the enjoyment of playing classic VH songs, I would've ranked this at the lower end of GH games.

Take your chances with this one! Game will not load-play, unless you happen to be real lucky for the day, and then the most you will get is one song. All of our other games work just fine, but with this, all you will get is a lot of frustration and sore eyes looking at the LOADING screen. The music on the game would be great, If it would work. We did a little checking around, and apparently this is very common for this game. For only $8.00, we thought we would take the chance, even after reading some reviews that warned of problems. BAD CHOICE on our part! We would really like to play the game, and it really is not worth sending it back, so if anyone knows of a way to get it to work, please post it.

Not being a huge Van Halen fan, myself, I was pleasantly surpised that several, cool, non-Van Halen songs did exist on this disc, though Van Halen afficionados may be disappointed that the game does not include some staple songs from the eponymous band's repertoire.

I was SO PUMPTED when I found-out that they were making a Van Halen edition (I grew-up in the cradle listening to Van Halen) they pulled-out all the stops; all of the fan content (special edition costumes and gear from their tours), amazing tracks that I've always wanted to mimic and enough content to keep me playing for days more than I should be! It is simply a must-have!

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. That in itself is reason for celebration, but the total package of the game just feels like a rushed cash-in. Though I was never a big fan of the Sammy Hagar era, his time with Van Halen was prolific enough to warrant some consideration. Whether his lack of inclusion was Eddie's call or Activision is unknown to me (where as thanks to the previous reviewer the absence of Michael Anthony has been cleared up, thank you), he regardless deserved to have at least a few tracks from his time with the band featured here. The extra bonus act tracks however just feel like they were slapped in here just because, and have little to nothing to do with Van Halen or what they meant to generation after generation of rockers and rock fans. Where as the bonus acts on Guitar Hero Metallica made sense, something just doesn't seem right about having Blink 182 featured as a bonus with Van Halen. All in all, for Guitar Hero junkies and Van Halen fans alike, Guitar Hero Van Halen is worth checking out at the very least, but other than that, there isn't anything here to hold your interest for long.
